His latest single release 'Like Yesterday' has been quickly adding to his ever growing image.

Humble beginnings

Forged from a world of humble beginnings and fueled by an unrelenting passion for music and his people, Revalation da Royal aka Revalation, is an international reggae artist poised to have a great impact on the world. For those who are familiar with him it is agreed that Revalation is a shining star.

The evolution of Revalation the artist began to take shape at an early stage in his life. His music has always been a guide in his life. It became his place of solace, clarity and passion filled expression in the most turbulent times as a youth growing up in the Virgin Islands. Revalation’s musical ability has always set him apart from his peers making it abundantly clear he is destined for greatness.

With a mantra of “thought provoking messages” the studio became a natural canvass to paint portraits of Revalation’s life and experiences. His unique vocal and lyrical approach allows listeners to connect with him in a meaningful way as he spreads his message across the globe.

Inspired by some of the trailblazers in the reggae music industry such as such as Bob Marley, Sizzla, Capleton and Buju Banton, Revalation brings a unique and refreshing sound. His energy and ability to move any crowd has earned him performances on the same stages graced by some of Reggae music’s greatest hit makers such as Beres Hammond, Buju Banton, Capleton, Beenie Man, Pressure Buss Pipe, Barrington Levi, Taurus Riley, Tony Rebel, Sanchez, Luciano, Freddie McGreggor, Ky-mani Marley and many more.

‘Like yesterday’

This one of a kind artist believes he is spreading a message of love, truth, and righteousness. His debut album "Serious Matters" is a perfect example of this message, with hits like "Self Esteem", "Live It Upright", and "You Are Someone".

“In time Revalation will be added to the great names of Reggae Music. He is a true musical flame that burns bright. Get ready to experience a new and exciting era in the world Reggae music,” commented his manager Tamra J. Caul, who is also the manager of well-known Virgin Gorda musician Martino ‘Tino’ Mark.

Revalation’s songs, especially ‘Like Yesterday’ are being played frequently on popular radio station in Jamaica, Irie FM, which Caul considers “a big achievement for Revalation. For them to play certain songs they have to really endorse them to push them.”

‘Like Yesterday’, which is available on and Sound Cloud, is a smooth Reggae love song, which many are falling in love with which is already propelling Revalation further into the spotlight.
