  • Matisyahu without the beard in music video for ‘Sunshine’

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    June 15, 2012 | 10:58 am

    First Matisyahu shaved his beard, worrying fans that he’d lost his way; then he started to bring it back. Now the Jewish reggae star appears clean-shaven again, as the above teaser for his new song “Sunshine” shows.

    The VideoJew had this reaction:

    Sporting frosted tips, multiple scarves, skinny jeans and no kippah (headcovering), the new baby-faced Matisyahu seems to resemble a love-child between an L.A. hipster and a youth group advisor.

    Unchanged is his voice and musical style, which still reminds us why we love him today.
