Silver Words Mines Gold

Couch Mode
Singer Robert Minott’s cover of Silver Words has topped the Jamaica Music Countdown Top 25 Reggae Singles chart. Silver Words was made popular in reggae circles in the 1970’s by Ken Booth. However, the song was originally written and recorded by Sixto Diaz Rodriquez in 1971.

Silver Words is the second chart topping single for Minott, a former concert promoter who has delved into the recording aspects of the music business. “I feel blessed, humbled and thankful that the song has reached number one. The support that the song has received from radio disc jocks and the media, has been overwhelming”, Minott said in a release to the media.

Silver Words peaked at number four on the New York Reggae chart. On the Pree Dis Top Ten Singles chart which airs on TEMPO, the track got as far as number five. The accompanying music video has been in rotation on MD-TV, TEMPO Networks, RE-TV and HYPE TV. The follow up to Silver Words is the track Someone to Love which features dancehall toaster Busy Signal. Minott believes that artistes who continue to produce quality music will reap the rewards.

“We have to continue to produce quality music that is appreciated and accepted by the fans and the media, because without their support, a lot of things wouldn’t be possible”, said Minott. Minott plans to release Someone to Love later this month. The accompanying music video is set to be shot in Jamaica under the direction of video director Nordia Rose.

The singer’s forthcoming album is still under construction and he promises that upon completion, fans will not be disappointed. “I’ve been super busy in the studios finishing up the album and all I can say right now is that the fans will not be disappointed”, Minott concluded.
