EDITORS’ NOTES

Kranium is a romantic, but his idea of date night lasts until long after the sun comes up. On shimmering sex jam "Stamina...," he calmly brags about having that titular stuff; then he proves it by delivering 40 minutes of soft-dancehall ecstasy that reimagines the lewd, spacious R&B of The-Dream with a Jamaican twist. "Nobody Has to Know" pairs nursery rhyme lilt with a call for down-low hookups, and though the lovemaking in "Moonlight" is as public as possible, the drifting synths and gentle vocals make it feel quite intimate indeed.

About Kranium

Born Kemar Donaldson in Montego Bay, Jamaica, singjay Kranium was schooled in the ways of reggae in his teens, after a move to Miami brought him closer to his uncle/mentor, dancehall singer Screw Driver. Kranium first broke out in 2013 with the hit single "Nobody Has to Know," an independent release that attracted major labels. Atlantic talked to the artist in 2013 and came calling again in 2014; then, in 2015, Kranium joined Sean Paul and Wayne Wonder as one of the few reggae artists signed to a major label. Atlantic re-released "Nobody Has to Know" that same year while Kranium entered the studio with producer Ricky Blaze, a frequent Gyptian collaborator, to guest on his track "Overrated." Kranium's debut LP, Rumors, was issued later that year, yielding singles like "Stamina," Can't Give A...," and a Ty Dolla $ign and KickRaux-assisted version of his hit "Nobody Has to Know." "Can't Believe," another Dolla $ign collaboration that also featured WizKid, was released in early 2017. ~ David Jeffries
