Buju Banton is re-releasing one of his most iconic albums.
One of Buju Banton’s timeless pieces of work, his album Til Shiloh will be given a new life after it’s re-released on December 18, 2020. The album, which was originally released 25 years ago, cast Buju B into the limelight and cemented his place in Dancehall under the Rastafarian banner. He announced via his Instagram and Facebook accounts that pre-orders will begin tonight at midnight (Nov. 5), and fans who pre-order will have access to a little treat as well. He posted: “I present to you the #TilShiloh 25th Anniversary album with new never heard before songs ?? Get a new track #ComeInnaTheDance when you Pre-Order tonight midnight! Album available Dec 18th on @islandrecords / @umgcatalog.”
The album, which produced many conscious anthems like “Til I’m Laid to Rest,” “Wanna be Loved,” and “Untold Stories,” was certified Gold earlier this year. Banton was given the gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America, RIAA, on its anniversary July 18. It was a great week for Banton, who celebrated his birthday earlier the same week on July 15.
President and CEO of Universal Music Enterprises Bruce Resnikoff, commended Banton during the presentation saying, “Buju Banton’s determination and discovery led him to create one of the most seminal albums in the dancehall reggae genre.”
