Dancehall/Reggae star, Mr. Vegas will be unveiling his new studio album, Lovers Rock and Soul, entirely featuring covers of popular foundation reggae and R&B songs.
The nine-track album, set for a late September release via his MV Music label, will feature covers of Alton Ellis’ Girl I’ve Got a Date, Say Amen by Howard Hewitt and Someone to Love by legendary R&B star and producer, Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Simmons. Vegas also does covers to the beats of Dennis Brown’s Queen Majesty and Ini Kamoze’s Reggae General.
Lovers Rock and Soul is co-produced by Vegas himself alongside iconic producer, Cleveland ‘Clevie’ Browne, who produced Vegas and Sean Paul’s smash hit, Hot Gal Today in 1999.
This will be Vegas’s second cover album, the first being his relatively successful Sweet Jamaica double album in 2012, which featured renditions of various Reggae classics from the likes of Barrington Levy, The Maytals and others on one side and an all-Dancehall set, including his smash hit Bruk It Down on the other.
