Romain Virgo will be making major strides next week when his ‘This Love’ music video airs on US-based cable station VH1.
According to his manager, Dawin Brown, they have been in negotiations with VP Records, as the company is about to sign the budding star. During the negotiations, Brown said several songs from Virgo's catalogue were submitted to them.
"They said they were really impressed with the ‘This Love’ video. Christy Barber (vice-president of marketing and promotions at VP Records) is kinda responsible for submitting it to MTV and VH1," Brown told THE STAR, while adding that the video is currently on the website for both stations. All of this took place within a six-week period, Brown said. "We just found out Thursday that it will be aired on VH1. So we are keeping our fingers crossed. We are just waiting for it to start showing," he said.
Virgo said he was very excited about the development of his career. "Jah know, a one of the greatest feeling. VH1 and MTV are world stations. I think it's a good opportunity for the world to see who the true Romain Virgo is. I think it is a good way to bring me out there to the world," he told THE STAR, noting that the video was done during his 2007 Digicel Rising Stars journey.
But this is not the only thing he has on his plate. This week he will shoot the video for ‘Who Feels It Knows It’ in Kingston and St Ann. The video, Virgo said, would "look at hard-working people in every environment."
He is also working on a self-titled album that will be released in May through VP Records. Virgo said it would have songs such as ‘Caan Sleep’, ‘Murderer’ and several new tracks.
For the album, there will also be a series of promotional shows. And, in the coming months, he will have shows in the US, Europe, Barbados, Bahamas, Grenada and St Martin.
"It will be a whole lot of work for the year," said Virgo.
