JAMAICAN-BORN producer Kali Ranks has added one other star to his universe after recently collaborating with Lauryn Hill on the song Perfect Match.
The one will form a part of Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica: The Asian Edition. It also features acts including cricketer-turned-artiste Chris Gayle, Capleton, and Sizzla Kalonji.
“It was the primary time meeting Miss Hill and, in fact, I used to be extremely excited to fulfill her. We met in Battery Studios New York City. She was a really humble lady. We spent hours writing and recording. She had great vibes and her skills were on point, as expected. It was truly a momentous moment in my music profession,” the producer, whose given name is Dean Moulton, told the Jamaica Observer.
The project will debut on December 23.
Hailing from Kingston, Kali Ranks also spent a few of his younger years in Portmore, St Catherine. He attended Kingston College for one yr before migrating to New York.
He has worked with other known artistes equivalent to Canibus, Chris Brown, Rampage from Buster Rhymes’ camp and Onyx.
Within the meantime, Kali Ranks says he has high hopes for the song which has two other remixes.
“We knocked out three versions of A Perfect Match in at some point, the fundamental version — which we made the dancehall remix — [is] to [be] called The Reprise where she sings a poem written by Drew Dixon, and a poetry recital that goes with the songs,” he informed.
Lauryn Hill, an eight-time Grammy winner, is understood for songs equivalent to Killing Me Softly, Nothing Even Matters, To Zion, and I Gotta Find Peace of Mind.
Kali Ranks feels honoured that the only will probably be a part of a collective project.
“The celebrities involved are ones that I actually have at all times looked as much as, like Capleton and Sizzla Kalonji and Str8 Kings. To be mentioned with Chris Gayle and such names is only a godsent gift. I’m thankful to Miss Hill and everybody down with the project and behind it,” he said.
