It was almost four years ago after the release of his hit single “You don’t have to be like them” that many in the reggae industry referred to Boom Viniyard as the next great reggae star out of Jamaica. But just as quickly as he burst unto the scene, he disappeared out of the spotlight.
Now Boom Viniyard is back again and his intentions are to take up right where he left off. His first single since his return is entitled "I Survive", a song that tells the story of exactly why he has been missing for so long. From being the victim of an attempted armed robbery, a near fatal car accident, trouble with the law and a stint in jail, Boom Viniyard seems to have been through it all. Still the artist seems to not only have triumphed over these obstacles but they have inspired the lyrics to the artist's new song.
