Cocoa Tea

Cocoa Tea is a trailblazing dancehall artist who helped create the dancehall explosion of the early ‘80s and paved the way for the stars that followed him. His career took off in Jamaica in 1985, and he rose to international popularity in the 1990s. With a consistent production of top quality recordings, Cocoa Tea brings his pure honey voice, laid back feel and good vibes to the fore. Among his most famous songs are “Rikers Island” and “Young Lover”. He gained notoriety in March 2008 after releasing a song titled “Barack Obama” in support of the US Presidential candidate.

In 1989, a supergroup featuring Cocoa Tea, Shabba Ranks, and Home T recorded together under the auspices of both King Jammy and Gussie Clarke. The resulting album, Holding On, was a major hit in Jamaica, as were the singles “Pirates Anthem” and “Who She Love.”
