Busy Signal x Lonely

Busy Signal does love a cover version and so do we, especially if its a dancehall one! The intro to lonely sees him interpolating Kool & The Gang’s Cherish. Its nice to have a video treatment for lonely but we kinda wish he did one for these covers too. We feel like we lost a bit of ourselves now that carnival is over for another year and Lonely is kinda easing the pain!
