The single ‘Old School’ represents a beginning, a journey of sorts through the artist’s origins. It’s a demonstration of the multiple registers and styles among which SumeRR moves with ease: roots, dancehall, soul, rap… all without ever losing sight of her Jamaican roots.

On a sweet and powerful Ras Kuko produced reggae riddim with a taste of the past, the singer shows her versatile voice, able to pass from the enveloping melody of the refrain to the energy and originality that hardens the verses of Old School.

In this song, SumeRR then shows us her essence, characterized by a voice as catchy as her presence on stage and by the freshness and boldness characteristic of Jamaican music. She debuts on the European music scene after beginning in her native Jamaica, where she gained respect since her youth thanks to various singles and collaborations.
The video clip that accompanies the single tells a story of love ‘old style’ starring SumeRR herself, proving her acting skills. It is directed by T. Kimono in Tenerife, shot by David Gil and sponsored by El Rincón de Tintín. Old School is available on all digital platforms.
