I remember it so vividly.
It was the most perfect sunny day. I was on my way to go meet up with some friends at the park. Even though it was a relatively short drive, I still wanted to jam out to some feel-good tunes.
When I put on a random Spotify playlist of contemporary dancehall music, I heard that beautiful, familiar bassline from Nora Dean’s “Barbwire” blast through my speakers.
But then I realized that it wasn’t Dean’s song. It only sounded like it.
