Written by Snow, M.C. Shan, and Edmond Leary, “Informer” was the lead single from Snow’s debut album, 12 Inches of Snow, which sold over 8 million records worldwide and was certified RIAA Platinum in the U.S. and CRIA Triple Platinum in Canada. The infectious nineties classic “Informer” made U.S. history in the Guinness Book of World Records as the best-selling and the highest-charting reggae single ever. The song’s enduring popularity has continued from 1994, where Snow won a Juno Award for Best Reggae Recording, to 2017, when he received a SOCAN Lifetime Achievement Award. For the new re-recorded, re-worked version of “Informer”, the award-winning producers in Audiofreaks gave the classic reggae hit a new dance club sound for 2018. With Audiofreaks’ fresh new spin on Snow’s reggae phenomenon, “Informer 2018” is set to make waves on music charts around the world again.
