Gappy Ranks sets sail with dynamic 'Clear Now'
From a glimpse of his Spotify, the legendary dancehall star has never had any intention of slowing down his output of music. Yesterday was an example of this as he drops a dynamic riddim dubbed "‘Clear Now’.
Like most dancehall, this track has life and energy. As the Harlesden born singer expresses a vast range vocally, the calm, smooth beat carries him like a sailboat coasting over placid waters. However, Ranks is the focus on this joint. Guided by well-mixed autotune, the Jamaican artist produces his strong vocals in his recognisable tone. He speaks on a rags to riches story, even using the first verse to focus on his past, thus jumping to others that are striving for a better life in his later verses. He ties it all together with a successful chorus/ending as “Dem ghetto youts a gone clear now”.
