With the date to the much-anticipated show fast approaching, the organizers have announced Wiz halifa’s involvement as part of the 2014 staging, July 13-19 at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Complex.
The artiste will grace the stage on International Night 1 of Reggae Sumfest 2014, slated for Friday, July 18.
Patrons can expect a high-energy performance from the Young, Wild and Free rapper with songs like On My Level, Remember You and We Dem Boyz from his upcoming Blacc Hollywood album.
Wiz Khalifa has steadily made a strong name for himself in the music industry and will be a welcome addition to what promises to be a stellar cast at the Greatest Reggae Show on Earth.
Khalifa’s Sumfest performance will follow the release of We Dem Boyz, the first single from Blacc Hollywood.
Speaking with Billboard about We Dem Boyz, Wiz Khalifa made reference to the single as being his biggest hit to date.
“I like We Dem Boyz as the first single just ’cause of the energy. I feel like it reaches so many audiences other than just a rap audience, sort of like how Black and Yellow was a big sports song. Just get everybody riled up, like more of an anthem,” Khalifa said.
The album is set to be released later in 2014 and features Miley Cyrus, Adele and Juicy J.
In addition to Wiz Khalifa, Reggae Sumfest 2014 will feature Tessanne Chin, winner of NBC’s ‘The Voice’, along with Sanchez, Chronixx, Jah Cure, Zvuloon Dub System from Israel, and much more.
Sponsors for this year’s festival include Digicel, Iberostar, Secrets, Pepsi, Jamaica Tourist Board, The Gleaner Company Ltd, and IRIE FM.
