Following the on-screen success of the hit Jamaican/Canadian film “Destiny” the movie’s soundtrack is also poised to dominate the airwaves. The reggae album went live on Friday, September 18, 2015 and is available now for download on iTunes, Amazon or Stream.
The Soundtrack of ten (10) artists is executive produced by Destiny’s producer and director Jeremy Whittaker CEO of Grasshopper Music Entertainment and is produced by the legendary reggae music producer Clive Hunt with Dwain ‘Wiya’ Campbell as co-producer.
Destiny: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features work from the film’s main stars Christopher Martin and Karian Sang as well as known Jamaican international acts Busy Signal, Tifa, and Spice. Parisian reggae artist Bazil, as well as Garnet Silk Jr, Montego Bay’s Yahsha, Angele Smith, AC and Wiya are also featured on the album.
“Together Tonight” by Bazil was released earlier this year and was the first single & video from the project. “Together Tonight” was produced by Bazil and Romain Ghezal. The video features snippets of Destiny with additional scenes from the Fleet Street community in Kingston, Jamaica and the world famous Tuff Gong International studios. Also included are clips of Bazil performing “Together Tonight” at the Bob Marley Museum – the very first official affiliate of the GRAMMY Museum – for the 70th birthday celebration of the Reggae Icon and Legend. The video features cameos by Bob Marley’s children, Cedella Marley, Rohan Marley, Julian Marley, Ky-Mani Marley, grandchild Skip Marley and lead singer Stephen Newland of Roots Underground.
“If You Want It”, the second single from the movie’s soundtrack was released in August. “If You Want It” is performed by Destiny’s lead actress and Canadian recording artist, Karian Sang. The song was produced by Clive Hunt with production from Sly Dunbar (Sly and Robbie).
Destiny: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is produced by Grasshopper Music Entertainment and is distributed internationally by Tuff Gong International as part of its recent deal with Caroline Music, a division of Universal Music Group. Tuff Gong International label manager, Myshjua Archibald, describes the movie’s soundtrack as a natural fit for the company’s brand and catalogue, “The Hon Robert Nesta Marley, our founder, always intended that Tuff Gong be an outlet for the tremendous independent talent in Jamaica and the Destiny release continues that legacy.”
CEO of Grasshopper Music Entertainment, Jeremy Whittaker noted that “I believe this soundtrack is one of the best original compilation reggae albums out in recent times and it definitely can stand on its own legs separate and apart from the film.”
CEO of the Marley Group, Cedella Marley, weighed in on the partnership, noting that “Tuff Gong is proud to be a part of another milestone in Jamaican entertainment. With this authentic Jamaican production, Jeremy is sharing a slice of Jamaican life,” she said. “Destiny has ruled the local box office and will no doubt attract a global following, and we look forward to a successful partnership.”
