Rehab

By The Jolly Boys

Jamaican mento band The Jolly Boys give Amy Winehouse's hit a reggae makeover for this single. It may sound like a musical nightmare but, a few seconds in, and you'll wonder why no-one's given 'Rehab' the reggae treatment before. Albert Minott's soulful croon simultaneously fits 'Rehab' perfectly, while stepping out of Winehouse's shadow and making this song his own. The shunting rhythms and the band's traditional Jamaican instruments transform this grim tale into a surprisingly funky, summery song. A fresh, exotic take on the old radio stalwart.
