Busy Signal Coming Fully 'Loaded'

Tuesday September 9 will see the release of dancehall artiste Busy Signal’s groundbreaking sophomore album. The album entitledLoaded will be released on VP Records and will entail some of Busy’s latest hits.

 The album includes number one smashes JailThese Are The DaysUnknown Numberand Wine Pon Di Edge which are currently dominating the dancehall scene worldwide.

Busy's sense of fun and mischief is allowed full reign on tracks like Wine Pon Di EdgeHey Girl, hip hop/dancehall hybrid Tic Toc and Cool It Baby, which Busy programmed himself.

Yet it’s his powerful commentaries on the ghetto lifestyle, like These Are The Days that have lent Busy Signal’s art its raw edge, and made him into such a potent mouthpiece for the disenfranchised youth of Jamaica and beyond. Knocking At Your DoorPeople So Evil and Curfew, are the latest examples of this, whereupon real life and his talent for storytelling combine to an often spine-chilling effect.
