Label: MV Music
Ever since his blazing debut album Heads High, Mr. Vegas has been making it clear that he was more than just another dancehall one-hit wonder. The Jamaican singjay has demonstrated an uncommon ability to craft certified boomshots that impact all the way from Weddy Weddy Wednesdays to 106 & Park. Fourteen years into his career, one of dancehall's most consistent hit makers has stepped up his game once again, delivering a self-produced double album timed to celebrate Jamaica's 50th year of independence. The second disc gives us the Vegas we already know and love with dancehall blasters like "Certain Law" and the sexy girls' anthem "Bruk It Down," but the first disc shows another side of his vocal talents as Vegas reinterprets classic reggae tracks by the likes of Toots & The Maytals, Desmond Dekker, and Jimmy Cliff. These are not cover versions, more like heartfelt homages from one of Jamaica's most under-appreciated vocalists, just to let the people know that reggae's future is safe and secure.
