Kes – ‘Jolene’

Kes – Jolene - Ineffable Records

Soca superstars and cultural ambassadors KES THE BAND invite listeners to Trinidad & Tobago with their first 2022 release “Jolene.” Not to be confused with the Dolly Parton classic, this “Jolene” is a buoyant celebration of good vibes and rolling waistlines in the tradition of crossover soca smashes like Rupee’s “Tempted to Touch” and Kes’ own “Hello.” With Carnival celebrations paused for the second straight year, the band made it their aim to create a totemic anthem that will instantly transport listeners from across the globe to Caribbean shores. Producer Dwala’s mid-tempo riddim adds a touch of afrobeats and highlife to the mix, ensuring “Jolene” a spot on the playlists of any DJ looking to bring global vibes to the party in 2022.

The world-acclaimed singer said “though we haven’t seen each other face to face, we are ready for a real-life embrace.”

Produced and recorded at esteemed Harmony House Studio in Stony Hill, Jamaica, by the mood and theme of the song is to bring joy to those who hear the track. Wickerman adds “people have been through a lot and we just want to lighten the vibes.”.

Accompanying the release of the song is the music video shot on location in Jamaica. Filmed in the setting of an intimate outdoor space, and in the company of close friends and family, Beres and Wickerman take center stage sharing one microphone while performing for those in attendance and those watching from a distance. Not lost in the peripheral is a youngster (representing the younger generation) who wants to attend the festivities of his elders. “That scene shows that the youth have an interest in what the elders are doing” said Prof & Kryss Ras who directed the music video.

Cameo appearances in the music video include Tony Rebel.

“Mi Deyah Again” is distributed by VPAL Music and is available on all streaming platforms.
