Reggae artiste Prestige has released his latest single entitled ‘3 Points’ which zones in on the hot topic of racism.
‘3 Points’ is all about working hard and doing what needs to be done to survive. This message reigns true in today’s world as many black people work hard to provide while being plagued by higher numbers of Covid-19 cases in addition to the recent police brutality against George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.
Produced by Konection Entertainment, the song has a dual meaning as it encourages a work life balance. No stranger to speaking on racial injustice issues, his 2017 single “They Don’t Give”, made a statement in the community as it ignited conversations about police practices and motives. Now in 2020, both singles “They Don’t Give” and “3 Points” shed light on the current climate of the world, with lyrics that inspire and help remember one’s purpose in America. To work and survive.
Born Lauriston Bruce, Prestige has been making waves in reggae and dancehall music for the last two decades. Having grown up in Jamaica, he has made a name for himself on the island and beyond, being a testimony to achieving his goals, no matter what obstacles he faced.
Inspired by the likes of music legends such as Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Burning Spear, Dennis Brown and Kenny Rogers, his music career began in 1994 with his debut track “Big Time Murderer” which featured Black Scorpion. Known for being a lively performer, Prestige has entertained thousands of patrons opening up for reggae legend Cocoa Tea and hitting major stages like Hollywood Bowl, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, Reggae in the Desert, and Oracabessa Festival.
On the single, Prestige states “Love and cherish your life and let us work together to build for the next generations.”
