'Florilège' w/Lyricson & Red Fox [X-Ray Production]
Queen Omega also popped up recently alongside another Achis Reggae favourite, Lyricson (I wrote a review for a Lyricson album in December, still hasn't posted yet) (coming soon!) and Dancehall veteran, Red Fox for another French outfit --this one we have never talked about on these pages -- L'Entourloop. In a wildly entertaining medley style, 'Florilège' finds all three artists dazzling... but you cannot tell me that it isn't the Queen who reigns supreme with her highlight-reel like vocals.
Just as was the case with 'Thunder Storm', 'Florilège' is also part of a bigger project as L'Entourloop is set to drop their new album, " La Clarté Dans La Confusion ["Clarity In Confusion"], on the 10th of June. L'Entourloop's previous efforts appear to have ventured somewhere between Reggae and Hip-Hop and, seemingly, this one does the same, but along with Queen Omega, Lyricson and Red Fox, Reggae heads will be delighted to see names such as Kabaka Pyramid, Ken Boothe, General Levy, Tippa Irie, Manudigiital, Alborosie and even Bounty Killer attached to this project.
So you already know what I'm thinking, don't you???? It's the same thing I've been thinking about for the past fourteen years now... but I won't jinx that. Instead, I'll just suggest that you take a listen to some of the BIG vibes dropped by one of the most talented Reggae artists of all time, the incomparable Queen Omega and maybe we can hope for..... okay, yeah, just do that.
