Billboard writer Patricia Meschino has declared reggae firebrand Nesbeth as the hottest ticket in Reggae for 2015 heading into 2016.
According to the internationally accomplished writer Nesbeth ascends to Jamaican music’s major league with the release of “My Dream”, the singer’s heartfelt delivery detailing his journey from Trench-town to stardom, the strength he derives from Rastafari guiding his journey. Released in late October 2015, an official video is just one of the promotional tools planned for 2016 to take the song to a global audience that it most certainly deserves.
The official video is set to world premiere this Saturday, January 9th via ONSTAGE aired on CVM Television and also the popular VEVO platform.
