Courtney John – “Never Keep You Waiting” (Itation Records)

Love is in the air and it’s not just because it’s Valentines Day on February 14. No, it’s actually the new lovers reggae tune, “Never Keep You Waiting” from Jamaica’s sweet and soulful singer Courtney John that has the airwaves buzzing. He’s been called a modern day Slim Smith, some say he’s like a young Eddie Kendricks or Curtis Mayfield with his sweet falsetto sound. But what really matters is that the ladies love Courtney John and the fellas can’t help but respect the mix of foundation and current styles. “Never Keep You Waiting” is the new single release from roots reggae label Itation Records which has proved again and again its uncanny ability to pick where the next roots reggae hit will come from (World Go Round Riddim, Ifficial Riddim, Clearly Riddim, Delly Ranx ‘Good Profile’). Upon hearing the soulful reggae riddim track produced by long time partners Tune In Crew, Itation must have known Courtney John couldn’t wait to put his signature style on it.
