Island-Pop Star, Conkarah, returns with the release of his new single and soon-to-follow music video “Banana” featuring fellow Jamaican and GRAMMY award-winning artist, Shaggy, who also co-produced the track. AVAILABLE NOW.
“I can’t wait to share this positive vibration with you all, and it’s an honor to work with Shaggy who is a Reggae/Dancehall pioneer and a Jamaican hero,” said Conkarah.
“‘Banana’ is a modern re-flip of a timeless, classic melody complete with tongue-in-cheek humor in the true Caribbean tradition. Conkarah has a cool delivery and it was fun to complement that on the song with my tone,” said Shaggy.
Written by Conkarah, “Banana” is a tongue-in-cheek play on the 1956 hit Jamaican folk song “Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)” from the legendary Jamaican singer/songwriter/activist/actor Harry Belafonte.
