While Dre Tosh’s debut single ‘Coming In Hot’ was a spinoff of the Peter Tosh original from the eighties, the singer solidifies his vocal talent and truly reveals his lyrical ingenuity on the verses of  ‘Don’t You Worry’ with a delightful play on words.

Explaining why the single was selected as his second release from his repertoire of songs, Dre Tosh says “I wanted as soon as possible to let the people know the diversity of my music. My signature style is really new age rebellious but I have different vibes to it.”

The young messenger of love has already received much favour since the May 31, 2017release of his music video for ‘Coming in Hot’. He will release at least one more single this year before his highly anticipated extended play (EP) album set for January 2018.

Meanwhile, Dre Tosh continues to pay homage to the world-famous Peter Tosh by performing covers of the reggae legends’ chart topping hits; while revealing his own original masterpieces.

It is still not known whether there will be a music video for the singles on the Digital Fashion rhythm.

As the grandson of Winston “Peter Tosh” McIntosh, OM from the legendary reggae trio The Wailers and son to Carlos “Andrew Tosh” McIntosh, Dre Tosh is carrying the baton as the third generation of musical rebels.

Released on the Calibud Music label, ‘Coming In Hot’ is a rendition of Peter Tosh’s original song released in 1981 on his Wanted Dread & Alive album. It is a catchy radical melody with Peter Tosh’s vocals on the chorus, infused with Dre’s militant voice on the verse.

According to Dre, “The story line is… I take up a cassette that says Red X [a term synonymous with Peter Tosh’s documentary on his life], and I start listening to that and everything starts to come to me – as the third generation Tosh. This video is just saying that I am ready to take up the baton,” says Dre.

“With the baton, we giving off messages but the messages I’m giving them nuh want me convey to the world… My style is new age rebellious. So I rebel by doing what it takes to get the message out,” shares young Tosh.

The artist who penned the verse, acknowledges the members of the I Threes – Judy Mowatt, Marcia Griffiths and Rita Marley – early in the video. The singer also pays great homage to his late grandfather in numerous ways; the use of a unicycle being one of the most notable.

Bunny Wailer, affectionately called “Jah B” from the original Bob Marley and the Wailers appears in the video where he presumably gives Dre a mission.

The music video for ‘Coming In Hot’ is directed by Wayne South and Calibud and co-produced by Calibud Music and House of Congress. The video will be released in Jamaica in May, before moving on to other international television platforms.
