Buju Banton Makes a Return with ‘Upside Down 2020’
by Derêka K. Bennett
Grammy award winning Reggae artist, Buju Banton’s highly-anticipated project, Upside Down 2020 has finally arrived.
“We’ve been working since I got back [from a 10 year prison sentence for drug trafficking], laying down demos and ideas I already had in my mind,” Banton tells Essence Magazine. “We want reggae music that the world can respect and love and adore once more because of the beautiful vocals that we contribute.” He continues: “[And] we always want to offer a glimmer of truth through our lens, even if it’s not what they want to hear.”
