Award-winning dancehall act, Samini released his much-awaited “Untamed” album on his birthday, December 22, the same day as Saminifest 2018.
Untamed is Samini’s 7th studio album.
Samini revealed a while ago that his inspiration for the album comes from certain stages he went through in life. He decided to make all reggae because he believes reggae made him who he is.
“This is an initiative to just give the right credit to reggae music because reggae has given me what I am or has taken me where I am today”
The 22 track reggae album was put together over a 3-year period. 95% of the songs were written by Samini, other songwriter credits to Michael Bruce Gore and Samini’s dad. The album has no features; all songs were voiced by Samini – from singing, backing vocals to adlibs.
Untamed was born out of Samini’s desire to feed fans mature music. All songs on the album were produced live; Mizter Okyere, Dan Grahl played instruments on some of the works with production credits going to LoudCity Music, JMJ, Brainy Beatz, Quick Action, Mix Master Garzy, Kaywa, and Rodney King Music.
