With over 15 million albums sold worldwide, multiple Grammy nominations and top 10 Billboard hits (including the No. 1 smash “Close To You”) – the most successful solo act in British reggae history Maxi Priest drops his new video for “Holiday,” the latest single off his first studio album in almost a decade Easy To Love (VP Records). Yahoo Music premieres this visual opus, directed by acclaimed Jamaican visionary Ras Kassa and filmed at Strawberry Hill Hotel, located high in the Blue Mountain region of Kingston, Jamaica.
Easy To Love is a fine representation of pop, reggae and R&B blended together in one set. The title track was a No. 1 hit on reggae charts last summer, evidence that Maxi Priest has a gift for staying fresh. “Hearts Across The World” is a song for our times and pleas for people of all races to love one another. The soulful “Without A Woman” features Jamaican legend Beres Hammond and even echoes the themes and intensity of James Brown’s “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World.” Maxi continues to tug on women’s heartstrings with irresistible tributes of enduring affection on “Loving You Is Easy,” “Holiday” and his rendition of John Mayer’s “Gravity.” PURCHASE Maxi Priest’s Easy To Love now via iTunes: http://smarturl.it/EasyToLoveUS
