JMZ – INTERNATIONAL

JAY PRINCE – BEAMLIGHT

Should someone tell Jay Prince it’s ‘Lightbeam’?  Probably. Is his new track a banger regardless?  Absolutely.  Produced jointly by Sango and Savon, the beat is sparse; all handclaps and hi-hats with a light, melancholy keyboard refrain wandering beneath Prince’ bars.  The apocalyptic video comes directed by Filmawi, and as this is the first drop from…
