Hold Me

Saint Lucian super-producer and artiste Motto brings a healthy dose of island vibes with the Flavor Riddim on “Hold Me,” featuring a cross-island collaboration featuring Caribbean superstars Charly Black (Jamaica), Machel Montano (Trinidad & Tobago), Teddyson John (Saint Lucia), and Skinny Fabulous (Saint Vincent).
