Ras-I If You Don’t Mind shows off singer’s versatility

Reggae artiste, Ras-I

Reggae artist Immanuel ‘Ras-I’ Kerr has released ‘If You Don’t Mind’, the third single off his highly anticipated ‘Kingman’ EP.

The track which is a collaborative effort between Ras-I and music production collective Koastal Kings, was released on November 19 and is an ode to lovers across the globe.

A sultry, slow-groove track, the single serves as an ‘open-letter’ about the artiste’s feelings regarding a past romantic partner. According to a release, the song holds a special place in his heart.

“The track came from a special place. I had a conversation where my sistren said she was unsure about how I felt with regards to certain aspects of our relationship and so I wanted to capture that feeling while ensuring the song had the same ‘feel good’ energy’,” he shared.

Adding a “refreshing twist” to Ras-I’s traditional reggae sound, If You Don’t Mind blends Afrobeats and Dancehall to create what the entertainer’s public relations team describes as a ‘slow-groove’ bound to mesmerize those already swept up in love.
