As Jamaica's summer heats up so does Peter Lloyd, his new single I Heard Them Say is a tribute to the reggae pioneer Brent Doe, who recently passed through transition, member of the iconic group the Melodians. Peter Lloyd has done a cover of Brent Doe's classic I Heard Them Say produced by the dancehall's hottest producer, billboard topping Snowcone.

Peter Lloyd's I Heard Them Say is the featured single on Snowcone's new riddim Peace and Love, which also features other reggae and dancehall luminaries such as Spragga Benz, Natural Black, Capital D, Daville and others. The idea for the cover was originally Snowcone's. Peter Lloyd saw it as an opportunity to pay homage to one of the great pioneers to Jamaica's music industry. The single which has been out for lest than a week has already met with resounding approval from members of the music fraternity as well as the Jamaican public.

"I just hope I did it justice, I don't generally do covers but I could not turn down this opportunity to pay my personal respect to one of the legends of reggae and dancehall. As you will hear Snowcone did a great job as producer."
