A while back, while watching a skate video on hypebeast.com, Al Pancho (aka Owen Brown) appeared doing an acapella version of his single “Reggae Rock Star Life”, and I quickly tracked it down on Spotify. Pancho is from Kingston, Jamaica and has been releasing music since the age of 17, collaborating with a number of other local artists.

I posted the track as part of our Check This series and life went on. Cut to January 2019 – we get a message on Facebook from the real Owen Brown, who informs us that the current version of his song is a stolen track that has not been officially released by them! To help out Owen, I take the post and track down until they can get things sorted out.

Well, Owen recently contacted me and let me know that the song has now been officially released, so I’m happy to be able to share the song all over again. The track is a smooth, melodic dancehall pop number with a strong groove and laid-back flow. There’s also a strong undercurrent of joy and appreciation of life in the chorus that boosts the song’s positive vibes.

Check it out below on this Kingston Wall AllStars compilation.
