After taking a seven-year hiatus from releasing albums, Maxi Priest is back, and reggae fans welcomed his return with open arms. His record, Easy to Love, released in July, debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Reggae Albums chart. It is his first set since 2007’s Refused.
Yahoo Music is exclusively premiering the music video for his latest single, “Holiday.” But don’t expect a Christmas theme. The lyrics use the idea of “holiday” as a metaphor for a love interest, and the clip was filmed at Strawberry Hill in Jamaica.
The 11-track Easy to Love also includes a cover of John Mayer’s “Gravity,” “Hearts Across the World,” “Without a Woman” with Beres Hammond, and “Loving You is Easy.”
