New York-based reggae artiste Humbleton plans to make a significant impact on the international music scene with his debut album, Transition.
The 10-track album was produced by Mirror Ink Production and released on February 20.
A launch party for the album was held at the Taj Lounge in New York City on the same day it was released.
“This album is a culmination of all the hard work that I’ve done to hone my craft over the years.”— Humbleton
Some of the songs on the album are Rifle, Future Jamaica, Be On The Alert, I’ll Be There, Patience featuring Kempo G and Judgement Returns.
“I’ve been on this musical journey for a very long time, and this album is a culmination of all the hard work that I’ve done to hone my craft over the years. I hope the fans will love it,” said Humbleton.
Airplay in Jamaica
The first single off the album, a thought-provoking anti-violence track titled Rifle, was released late last year.
“I did this song because of all the crime and violence taking place in Jamaica. It’s getting a lot of airplay in Jamaica, the US, Africa, Europe and the UK,” he said.
The easy-going Rastafarian singjay is getting ready to visit Jamaica to shoot a music video for Rifle.
“My team and I will be visiting the island very soon to shoot the music video for this song. We also plan to shoot videos for some of the other songs on the album while we’re in JA.”
Humbleton, whose real name is Oswald Burt, is from Hopewell in Hanover.
