After a two-year break, singer Lincoln Prophet is preparing for a return to the music scene in April with Bon Jour , a self-produced lovers' rock ballad.

Prophet, who began his recording career in the 1980s, recorded the single last year. He has been off the circuit since 2018 when his first album, Realistic, was released.

“Any artiste will tell you that it takes money to stay in the music business. It was jus' a lack of funds dat keep him mi out for a bit,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

The St Elizabeth-born vocalist lived for many years in the United States, serving in the military for 15 of those. Even then, he was keen on pursuing a music career and hung out with singers like Linval Thompson and Sugar Minott.

At one stage he was signed to Minott's Youthman Promotions company.

Since 1986 when he released his first song, My Tender Lover, Lincoln Prophet (real name Weithney Reid) has followed up with Confusion and My Crew, both produced by Clive Hudson, a popular Jamaican disc jockey in New York City.

Bon Jour is done for Lincoln Prophet's Piece Of The Pie Productions. Best Friend, another of his songs pended for release in April, was done with Italian artiste El Siervo for Marc Muntane Navarra, also from Italy.
