The Royal Familyof Reggae, has taken the impressively significant step forward by releasingtheir upcoming album, Strictly Roots.
Guided by sheer acumen and apassionate desire to make their already rich musical legacy even moreimpactful, Morgan Heritage, after much deliberation and contemplation,triumphantly delivers their latest album exclusively on their very own labelCTBC (Cool To Be Conscious) Music Group.

According to Gramps, “Strictly Roots,our 10th studio album is particularly significant. It represents our firstalbum released independent of VP Records, on our very own label CTBC MusicGroup. VP has been great for the group and we're grateful for our years withthem. We just felt it was time to approach the release of our musicdifferently."
