Like every great artist, Gyptian has layers and multiple facets to his artistry.
There’s the conscious reggae singer who listeners first came to know on his breakthrough 2005 hit ”Serious Times.”
Then there’s the champion lover who captivated females worldwide with his crooning on “Hold You,” the sultry island pop smash that topped charts globally in 2010.
The song even caught the attention of rap superstar Nicki Minaj, who jumped on the remix.
It’s the latter side of Gyptian who takes center stage on his fourth album Sex, Love and Reggae, a musically diverse set that takes the listener from dancehall to soca to global pop sounds.
“This is the Gyptian album that I want people to hear,” the singer says.
“Each album that I do advances my career but this one is Gyptian—the next level.”
Never one to leave his fans hanging, Gyptian has stayed active in the three years since “Hold You” took the music world by storm.
He kept his voice ringing in the dancehalls during 2011 and 2012 with his hit single “Overtime” on JA Productions and the RVSSIAN produced single “Wine Slow,” which created a viral dance frenzy worldwide.
The lyrics video alone for “Wine Slow” has received over 7.5 million YouTube views to date.
During this time, Gyptian also recorded a cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors” (produced by Shance C. Brown and Stanley “Rellee” Hayden) for Chevrolet and MTV Iggy’s “Cover The World” showcase—highlighting his versatility once again for the global audience.
