Virgin Islands’ roots singer Danny I is back with his third album to date. 'To Your Majesty' follows his sophomore album 'Unchangeable' released in 2007. Both albums have been released on the VI-based I Grade label.

Danny I - To Your MajestyThe production duties on 'To Your Majesty' are handled by The Zion I Kings. This is the same trio – Zion High Productions, I Grade and Lustre Kings – that crafted Toussaint’s magnificent solo debut 'Black Gold' put out last year.

'To Your Majesty' contains 14 tunes and is similar to 'Black Gold'. Not lyrically, but musically. It contains heavy bass lines, smooth and mellow tempos and live instrumentation, including some nice horns.

Lyrically this is an album heavily inspired by reality and Rastafarian culture and teachings. On the Streets Again utilizes the Proverbs riddim and Danny I comments on the increasing violence in the small cities and towns of St. Croix.

Some of the best tunes are duets. The foremost highlight is Sometimish Rastaman with Sabbattical Ahdah on the same riddim that was used for Toussaint’s wicked Roots in a Modern Time. And the nicely skanking Never Lay Down features veteran singer Army.
