Rick Astley got the word dancing with his hit ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’. Junior Culture is set to send his heatwave sensation ‘Never Gonna’, a reggae interpretation of Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’.
h4>RICK ASTLEY OR JUNIOR CULTURE
While Rick Astley commits to his mate with a playful call, Culture’s reggae and dancehall mix version commits in a sensual nature. Released a month ago in Jamaica, ‘Never Gonna’ is a spread of the Jamaican Culture of passionate bonds.
‘Never Gonna’ is projected as Culture’s best creative expression yet, evidence that he does better with love songs rendered passionately from his heart.
Like Rick Astley, Culture seems bent on to healing the world of relationships. Culture’s version done – Jamaican style – is clear to understand.
Culture uses his natural suave in the video ‘Never Gonna’, to showcase solid love between a couple, and it’s easy for anyone to relate. The rhythm is as catchy as Rick Astley’s. While Astley’s original keeps you dancing, Culture’s ‘Never Gonna’ brings listeners to a romantic setting and even sexual intimacy of mind and body. So the song is set to be a lover’s anthem, especially after you get it about the patois lyrics.
‘Never Gonna’ is an epitomy of ideal love. In the song’s verses, Culture releases admiration for the loyalty of his partner who has stuck by him through highs and lows. The chorus is themed with his commitment to “never gonna make you cry”.
With lyrics like “She (Angela) nah go do Acapella” Culture commits to being the music for her tunes, and boasts when “she tell di rich man fih gwaan, a Culture alone, can plough her farm.” Angela, of course being the name he chooses to represent the object of affection.
The song is worked out with a ‘reggaerisation’ of the chorus from ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ at the opening, middle and end, bridging two solid and meaningful verses.
One will be sure to hit replay in one’s mind after watching the actual video, a romantic conversation by the sea, a popular choice for sexual mediations.
‘Never Gonna’ compliments Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Hurt You very well in lyrics and rhythm, adapted by Love Line Riddims. It was recorded at Small World, by recording artiste Jermaine ‘Junior Culture’ Vassell, who doubles as the producer. Full credits to Rick Astley and Jermaine ‘Junior Culture’ Vassell.
