The roots singer Chronixx takes a moment to uplift the Queen’s with his laid-back smooth vocals, providing a fresh interpretation on the Studio One classic instrumental cover version of The Spinners ‘I’ll Be Around’ by Otis Gayle. Directed by Che Kothari, the accompanying visuals, set in a rustic cabin surrounded by the lush St. Mary, Jamaica scenery, tells the tale of Chronixx serenading his majesty in a dreamy scenario with an unexpected twist.
The track was premiered by David Rodigan as Rodigan’s Scorcher on his influential BBC 1Xtra radio show. ‘Majesty’ was included on the Spanish Town-native’s mixtape Roots & Chalice before becoming a stand-out hit with crucial support from the reggae community around the world. The lovers rock song currently borders 250k plays on Soundcloud.
“Majesty which was originally recorded for the Roots and Chalice project. In my opinion, it is one of the strongest pieces of music from the mixtape so we needed to do a visual for it,” Chronixx says. “It became a very important piece of music to me based on how it came out after doing the production and recording of the song. It started to feel like a very important song so we decided to make it a part of the Chronology album.
“It’s more a spiritual vibration that we tried to bring across which is mainly about the divinity within the woman and the balance that can be found within i & i.”
