After ten years, the Gargamel boss is set to release this album on Friday officially, June 26, 2020, and pre-order is available. Buju Banton announced the release of his new album “Upside Down 2020” on June 9.

Buju Said, this album of 20 tracks is happening because this is 2020, and Gargamel fans have waited for a new album since 2010.

The album Features four artists in four tracks; Yes Mi Friend (Stephen Marley), Memories (John Legend), Cherry Pie (Pharrell Williams), and Call Me (Stefflon Don).

Banton added;

“While I seek to highlight the systemic problems around the world, I am aware of the need of preserving dancehall culture along with the real essence that reggae music offers but these are not normal times so things cannot continue as normal. We are the change we seek, and it’s our time to cement this thought in the minds of our youth. To open their eyes, thus enabling future generations to continue on a firm path and solid foundation with music doing its job as the great healer, teacher, comforter and above all, the restorative force that propels human beings to higher heights.”
