Jamaican singer and songwriter Ras-I (born Immanuel Kerr) premiered his new single “Ordinary Day” from his upcoming debut album, Tsojourna. With a soulful reggae vibe, romantic lyrics and unforgettable production by the Koastal Kings, the R&B-infused ballad is guaranteed to make you want to fall in love, or at least inspire sentimental thoughts of a loved one.
The song was written by Ras-I and produced by Koastal Kings (Shamir Walker and Keneil Delisser), with additional instrumentation by Almando Douglas, Kelsey Gonzales, Andrew Stotch, Okiel McIntyre and Zoë Brown.

#DownDiRoad is a movement founded by Duane ‘Doofy’ Phillips. The travel blog downdiroad.com was founded as a space dedicated to the exploration of Jamaica and it’s culture in all aspects; whether through it’s attractions, experiences, food, music or nightlife.
Over time, the blog has transcended into the visual space via the images & videos shared on the @downdiroadja social media pages, and via the #DownDiRoad travel & #downdiroadLIVE music series’ on Youtube.
The goal is and always will remain the same. Create a visual experience for consumers by sharing the beauty of Jamaican travel, culture, music and food. — Duane Marc, #DownDiRoad
