2022 Jamaica Festival Song finalists now streaming across the world

  • 16 Jul 2022

Kingston, 16 July 2022 – The 2022 Jamaica Festival Song album is now live on global music streaming services across the world including Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, Spotify, Tidal, and Pandora.

The album titled ‘Jamaica Festival 2022 Song Competition’ features the ten finalists in this year’s competition.

It’s the third consecutive year that finalists in the Jamaica Festival Song Competition have been released on global streaming platforms.

The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, who has been leading the initiative as part of her strategy to revitalise Jamaica Festival is urging “lovers of Jamaican music, everywhere, to support the artistes by streaming and downloading the songs.”

According to the Minister, “It is essential that people hear and get to know the finalists and participate in selecting that one song which will drive our Jamaica 60 Independence celebrations.  These 30, or so, streaming options are a good medium to expose the music and the performers.”

The winning song will be decided by judges scores as well as public voting via text messaging in Jamaica and via the Reggae Jamaica App across the world.

The finalists are:

There’s a prize of three million dollars for the winning song to be shared among the producer, the writer and the singer.

Minister's charge

I remain hopeful because of the giftedness of the Jamaican people; their warmth and creativity; their dynamism and indomitable spirit that have resulted in excellence in all sectors.

It is by tapping into the gifts and awakening the spirit of the Jamaican people that we will, by God’s grace, re-group, re-engineer and re-open to a brighter future with Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport.

Olivia Grange
