Jamaican reggae musician Immanuel ‘Ras-I’ Kerr recently released the visuals for Somewhere Wonderful, the fourth track from his album Kingman.

The video was shot in various locations across Jamaica: Martha Brae River and the wider Trelawny as well as Lime Cay, to name a few. Somewhere Wonderful is a sonic (and now visual) depiction of the spirit of envisioning a better state of mind for oneself. 

“It [the video] paints the picture of what the song says,” Ras-I said. “It shows the connection with family and friends; ‘Somewhere Wonderful’ doesn’t have to always be a physical location – can be with friends and family. The video brings  that ‘feel good’ vibe: you watch it and you just feel that energy.”

Kingman is Ras-I’s sophomore album and is a multi-genre, multi-produced project which Ras-I deems as his best body of work to date.

It features vocals from Dre Island, Christopher Martin and Royal Blu and is a summation of the different sides of Ras-I as well as his own personal experiences. 

The Somewhere Wonderful music video is out now via Ras-I’s YouTube and was shot and directed by Alt Media with fashion styling by Tamo Ennis.


Ras-I is fresh off his debut Dubwise Miami performance and has his attention focused on executing his show ‘Live Music Lives’ a collaborative effort between himself, Nation Boss and Blvk H3ro.

The live event takes place in Pier 1, Montego Bay on June 11 and features Mobay-natives Rosh Reign and Nick Ika.
