If the excitement of the recent reunion of the Rishi Rich Project wasn’t enough, Punjabi Rockstar Juggy D and musical brother in arms Rishi Rich take it to another level by announcing an exciting new collaboration with none other than Reggae legend Maxi Priest. The trio have been in the studio secretly working on some genre-bending material. A magical blend of Maxi’s reggae vibe with the smoothness of Rishi’s R’n’B tones all fused together with a subtle desi lick from Juggy! Rishi says:
Amazing feeling to work with Maxi Priest. He’s someone who I’ve grown up listening to and have been inspired by. The collaboration between Maxi, Juggy and myself is going to be electric. We’re working on several projects together which include tracks for Maxi’s album and some Indian film tracks too!
Superstar Maxi Priest, best known for singing reggae music with an R’n’B influence, has had huge hits over the years including his cover version of the Cat Stevens classic ‘Wild World’, ‘Set the Night to Music’ with Roberta Flack, ‘That Girl’ with Shaggy and ‘Fe Real’ with Apache Indian. Apart from UB40, Maxi is the only British Reggae act to have reached number 1 on the American Billboard chart with ‘Close To You’ in 1990. Maxi commented:
It was a great vibe working with Juggy and Rishi alongside the man Livingston Brown and I’m looking forward to creating some more new songs in the near future. Something to look out for! Bless.
It’s an absolute honour to work with the legendary Maxi Priest, I grew up listening to his music and now that we’ve spent time in the studio working with him, we’re very excited to introduce this fusion of our sound with Maxi’s to a diverse audience far and wide!
