Jamaica’s local music scene has spawned many international hits and superstars over the decades and our music has influenced artists and sounds globally. The latest local son that seems destined for global stardom is Chronixx, a young vocalist who burst on the scene last year with his conscious positive messages that is overdue in a local music void of uplifting messages especially for the young. The latest in a number of Chronixx songs I like is “Smile Jamaica” which I can only describe as a long song to the country of Jamaica itself with some underlying messages for keen ears. Check out the video and lyrics below and share your thoughts via comments or tweet me @Jamaipanese.

Chronixx – Smile Jamaica – Lyrics

Oh I met a girl this morning
She was love at first sight
Oh I met a girl this morning
And she was beauty to my eyes
I asked her if she finds the… in the Tropics
She asked me what’s my name
I told her that it’s Chronixx
And I said girl tell me what’s your name
She told me that her name is Jamaica

And I said
Smile girl smile
Smile for me Jamaica
x 2

Never you cry
Here am i
I’m here for you Jamaica
Dry your eyes
Girl smile

She has a rich history
A beautiful woman with the sweetest gifts
Beautiful sunrise and an evening kiss
I find a nice sunset on the evenin seas
But she told me that she’s tired
Tired of exploit and liars
She gave them reggae beaches flowers and ferns
All she got was abusing in turn

And I said
Don’t you worry yourself mama
Chronixx is here to help mama
I said no worry yourself mama
What can I do for you

And I said
Smile girl smile
Smile for me Jamaica
x 2

Never you cry
Here am i
I’m here for you Jamaica
Dry your eyes
Girl smile

[jamaica]
