Alkaline drop a new single “Hard Tackle” over the weekend and already it’s the top trending dancehall song on YouTube.
The single was released on Saturday night and at the time of this publication it reached close to 300,000 views. The Chimney Records-produced single bridge the gap between hardcore and conscious dancehall banger. “Ghetto youth, you haffi deh pon your guard / Worse when you make it inna the upper echelon as an underdog / Dem see your car and a wonder hard / See life a change fi you and a say you fi deh inna the morgue / The system weh we grow up inna a fraud,” Alkaline deejay.
Alkaline has not released a new song in a few months, and this year he has only released a handful of new songs in comparison to previous years. Despite slowing down his new release, the Vendetta deejay has scored a hit with almost every new single he released this year and this one “Hard Tackle” is living up to the expectation. “If Alka keeps this up then he will be the greatest that ever do this,” one fan wrote.
