Garrison Christmas Vol 2: The Sexy Edition is Contractor Music’s giveaway this year and everyone is asking the same question, why sexy?
Well, it looks like for producer Sean ‘Contractor’ Edwards, gangsta and sexy are the two opposite ends of the same pole and this year, with his social conscience at the forefront, he’s gone for the latter.
“Last years Garrison Christmas The album was more of a gangsta approach with people like Squash, Aidonia and Jahvillani, so this year we decided to change the concept a bit because of the gun violence that has increased in Jamaica. Many of these gangsters don’t realize that guns are about defending, not offending. When I look at the crime problem in Jamaica, I said, let me change my approach a bit this year and keep the dancehall but on the more fun and sexy side, ”said Edwards. THE STAR.
He specially selected the artists he wanted to represent in this “sexy” collection from Yuletide, which was officially discontinued last Friday.

We also have a man who crossed paths with a great song from girls, Gyptian. We decided to incorporate a Mexican with Jah Fabio because it opens up the Spanish market, “he explained.
Edwards is thrilled to have Lisa Mercedez, not only because she is “a woman from London for whom we know great things are going to happen”, but also because she would be good friends with Vybz Kartel and give him back. sometimes visit.

It was the best-selling reggae album on Amazon. We can’t wait to see the reception of this year’s Sexy Edition, ”said Edwards.
