'Suspicious' Single

Peace Process Album

“Queen Makedah has raised the bar yet again with this fine production. 'Suspicious' delivers a conscious message to beautifully crafted quality roots reggae music, and her soul-stirring melodic voice flows like healing waters - from deep to deep. This tune gives voice to the issues of racial injustice still prevalent in the world today in a way that you can feel. I love it! Big love and respect Queen Makedah.”

Single reviews

I am a huge fan of Queen Makedah. She manages to educate and inspire through her music. The warmth of her voice captivates your soul, which enables you to hear the message at hand! ”

The glorious new track ‘Suspicious’ on the wicked ‘Unlimited Love Riddim’ is a serious tune. It has a special vibe, as it expertly blends a conscious contemporary roots reggae riddim with strong reality lyrics and a soulful groove delivered by Queen Makedah - a singer/songwriter whose vocal is so spiritual, crystal clear and very powerful. Looking forward to the full album!”

I have listened and played the track ‘Suspicious’ on my program and I think Queen Makedah has once again captured the essence of what’s going on with our black men. This tune should wake up the industry to the talent of this awesome artist.”
