In 2006 Matisyahu enjoyed an unlikely turn in the national spotlight – after all it’s not every day an orthodox Jewish rapper/singer/beatboxer with a distinctly reggae style gets played on MTV – but in the three years since his breakthrough album Youth he hasn’t exactly been a household name. Undaunted, he’s now re-releasing new versions of some past songs, starting with the Akon assisted One Day. A track that absolutely floats thanks to some lighter-than-air production from The Smeezingtons (whose name still makes me chuckle) One Day is a deeply inspirational track that Matisyahu fills with the sound of his distinctive voice and spiritual lyrics while Akon does his best Wyclef impression and tries to shift his focus from (not) disrespecting women to advocating for world peace, a difficult transition he accomplishes. If One Day has you lifted be sure to check out the updated re-release of Matisyahu’s last/new album Light, available in stores and online now.
