In a written statement released to the media, Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, announces his latest project.
“King of the Dancehall’ is not a 14 song compilation, it’s a masterpiece, an album that encompasses the very essence of Adidja Palmer and by extension, the Jamaican experience,” Kartel stated.
“‘King of the Dancehall’ will reinforce Vybz Kartel’s status as not just another self-proclaimed King, but as the people’s champion. The man who has created a movement like no other in Dancehall – the true King!,” he added.
Kartel explains that his forthcoming album is strictly Dancehall to its core.
“This album will bring its listeners into the world of hardcore Dancehall, not some ‘pop music’ watered down version. It will give you a peek into my Jamaica. Not the one on the tourist board ads, but the real Jamaica… ‘Dancehall Jamaica’,” he elaborated.
‘King of the Dance,’ which was produced by Adidjahiem Records/TJ Records and will be distributed by Zojak World Wide, contains a 14-track set of exclusive, never before released singles from Vybz Kartel.
Recorded by the prolific artist before his incarceration, the tracks have been carefully completed by renowned dancehall producer Linton ‘TJ’ White of TJ Records and Adidjahiem the label known for promoting artists like Popcaan, Jah Vinci, Lisa Hyper, Tommy Lee and more, as well as the Billboard chart topping hit “Romping Shop.”
