Reggae artist Richie Spice is gearing up for the release of his latest album, “Black Man Time”, set to debut on September 8, which also celebrates his birthday. This new collection comes after his 2020 album “Together We Stand”, launched under VP Records. “Black Man Time”, a work five years in the making, delves into themes of love, freedom, and hope.
A highlight from the album is Spice’s reggae take on Lionel Richie’s timeless “All Night Long”. The song holds sentimental value for Spice who said, “I’ve sung it since my youth and realized Lionel aimed for a reggae vibe.” In his rendition, he thoughtfully adds ‘reggae’ before ‘party’, giving it a personal twist.
The album commences with “Tea Time”, a reimagined version of Spice’s iconic “Earth a Run Red”, and concludes with “Happy New Year”. On his latest project, Richie Spice shared, “Given the music feedback lately, I felt the urge to offer something refreshing. It’s my responsibility to uplift souls with the talent I’ve been blessed with.”
Richell Bonner, better recognized as Richie Spice, emerges from a musical dynasty that includes talents like Pliers, Spanner Banner, and Snatcha. Celebrated for hits such as “Brown Skin” and “Youth Dem Cold”, the launch of “Black Man Time” on his 52nd birthday is set to be a momentous occasion.
