Dre Island, local reggae singer, has today (May 16) released the official music video for his track ‘High With You.’

The song, which is featured as track six on his critically acclaimed 2022 album, ‘High Times,’ celebrates the profound connection between music, marijuana, and love.

The music video aims to take viewers on a visually stunning journey, intertwining the double-meaning of being “high.” The captivating visuals feature the presence of popular influencer, Lee Not Nice, known for her charismatic personality and distinct dance styles. Her participation adds an extra layer of intrigue to the narrative, symbolising the duality of being “high” on both the marijuana, and the intoxicating feeling of being in the company of a loved one.

The video was shot across St. Ann and St. Thomas, showcasing Jamaica’s breathtaking scenery.

It’s not a typical marijuana song, as a matter of fact, some people may not even think it’s a marijuana song the way I’ve structured the lyrics. If you listen keenly, everything I sang about relates to the ‘female’ plant marijuana.

The music video showcases beautiful scenery, vibrant colours, and artistic storytelling. Through a harmonious blend of captivating imagery and Dre Island’s heartfelt performance, the video aims to transport viewers into a world where music, love, and the power of marijuana converge.

“It’s not a typical marijuana song, as a matter of fact, some people may not even think it’s a marijuana song the way I’ve structured the lyrics. If you listen keenly, everything I sang about relates to the ‘female’ plant marijuana,” the artiste said.

“The song is about my early encounters with the plant and how I was viewed and even scrutinised then for using it (by my mum and people in general). Now, it’s a source of inspiration for not only me but the world,” he added.
