Born Colin Harper (not nearly as cool a name as Collie Buddz), the “singjay” combines hip hop, soca, dancehall, roots and reggae music to create a sound that is one-of-a-kind. He was recently in Los Angeles, finishing a song with Sugar Ray (who knew they were still making music?) for his upcoming mixtape, which also features Buddz on songs by Beyoncé, Rihanna and Kid Cudi. The mixtape is set to be released on Buddz’ own independent label, Harper Digital, shortly before the release of his yet-to-be titled sophomore album.
