Happy Birthday Tarrus Riley!  The second-generation roots reggae singer made a bold entrance onto the music scene in the mid-2000s with albums like Challenges and Parables, the latter of which included the Sly & Robbie-aided hit “She’s Royal.”
The son of veteran singer and former Uniques and Techniques member Jimmy Riley, Tarrus’ music embraces contemporary sounds while remaining tied to Jamaica’s roots traditions as well as Rastafarianism. While continuing to rack up hits and awards, Riley maintained a focus on incorporating Black history into his music on tracks like 2011’s “Shaka Zulu Pickney” and launching the youth education initiative, the Tarrus Riley Freedom Writers Competition. Riley’s success continued throughout the 2010s with albums like Love Situation and a prolific run of singles.
His recent singles “Love Salute,” “Lighter” and “Heartbreak Anniversary” were well received by fans.
