The Jamaican entertainer gives fans more reason to keep the fire blazing, when asked about a new album.
“Soon… I release a few singles @itunes for now,” said Capleton.
Credited as one of the primary artists who brought reggae traditions back to dancehall music, Jamaican legend Capleton has been an industry force since the late 1980s.
Back then, his focus on righteousness and uplifting the downtrodden stood in stark contrast to the gun talk that dominated the genre, and for that foresight he was rightfully dubbed “The Prophet.”
Late ‘90s collaborations with U.S. rappers Method Man (“Wings in the Morning”) and Q-Tip (“Original Man”) during Capleton’s Def Jam days became crossover hits, but since then he’s focused on his core Jamaican audience.
For them, he continues to deliver one big rootsy jam after another as well as epic performances in which he moves and brings an energetic fire more fitting of a 20-year-old than someone closing in on 50.
