Abjo: Reprisal

Soulection artist Abjo has certainly delivered with his newest EP and the stand-out tune for me is his take on a Black Eyed Peas classic (pre-Fergie days, of course).

Just as Will.I.Am praises in the original, Abjo’s ‘Reprisal’ makes you wanna sing out:

‘That’s the joint, that’s the jam
Turn that shit up, play it again’

Because I honestly want to turn the volume up and play this song again and again.
