The dancehall king and his team held a listening party on Tuesday in Kingston. From what we’ve heard so far the album could be one of Beenie Man’s best work to date. The dancehall deejay’s manager Blue says that the delay is cause by some of the songs not getting clearance.
“The album was due for release today (August 26) but we didn’t get clearance for some of the songs in time,” Rohan ‘Blue’ Smith said in a statement. “We had to pull it because we had two must have tracks needed to go on the album.”
The album will be available on iTunes for pre-order starting September 2nd. The 22-track project will feature guest appearances from Bounty Killer, Agent Sasco, Christopher Martin and Verse Simmonds among others. Production credis goes to folks like Seanizzle, Major Lazer, Tony Kelly, Don Corleon, Jeremy Harding, and more.
Beenie Man says his favorite track on the album is “Blue Light” featuring Bounty Killer and Tristan Palmer. “You all know Bounty Killer is my deejay and Tristan Palmer is like my daddy, then Tristan Palmer Jr is my brother… so this was a great experience,” he said.
