Romain Virgo Drops new Album in March
Written by IrieJam Radio on February 12, 2018
Recording artiste and past Digicel Rising Stars winner Romain Virgo is set to release his album Lovesick, on March 30th.
The 17-track album is said to take listeners on a journey that explores every emotion felt when finding love, losing love and finding love again with a pop reggae sound tinged with his signature lovers’ rock style woven throughout.
Executive producer by Niko Browne of Lifeline Music, with additional production by Sting International and Vikings Production.
“I believe love is the one thing that’s going to save us, not just in terms of relationships, but in the broader human sense,” Romain says of the album’s title and content. “I personally believe that nothing forms a stronger bond than love. It cuts through race, religion, creed — everything. We need to put it at the centre of our lives,” said Virgo.
The first single Now, on the Skank and Rave rhythm, was released last summer. Other tracks include Trouble, which tells the tale of a woman who persists on breaking up his happy home after a one- night stand. The ballad Still is on the Skyspraper Riddim by Richie Stephens — a video for this track is coming in March. The album also includes Virgo’s cover of the Sam Smith smash Stay With Me.
The crooner will be embarking on a European tour at the end of March with special guest Sevana. The tour will include stops in Germany, the UK, Holland and Switzerland. He will be setting up US dates later this year.
