ROMAIN VIRGO RELEASE NEW ALBUM
Album: Romain Virgo
Artiste: Romain Virgo
Ratings: 3 1/2 out of 5 stars
From a 'rising star' to a full-fledged reggae artiste, Romain Virgo has showed his maturity in his debut self-titled album.
While still only 20, Virgo is far from a 'teeny bopper' showcasing mature writing, topics and an old time reggae vibe. Working with Penthouse Records since winning the Digicel Rising Stars competition, Romaine also works with other production houses such as Vikings Production, Pete Music and Juke Boxx Productions for his 15-track album.
From love songs to conscious lyrics interspersed with sexually charged lines in some songs, Virgo goes through a spectrum of topics. Fans will be familiar with tracks such as his popular Mi Caan Sleep, the romantic Wanna Go Home and Love Doctor. Other songs to watch out for are Walking Out On You as he sings, "see I've hurt you so much times/neva wanna hurt you no more/ so I'm just gonna be a man and walk through that door." In Who Feels It Knows featuring Etana, Virgo talks about the hardships of regular people like the barber, taxi man and more.
In Customer Care Virgo sings about girls calling his phone all the time, the ones who "nah text a send please call me." Virgo teams up with fellow Rising Stars winner Cameal Davis in I'm Doing Good a song about doing good despite hard circumstances. Dark Skin Girl is another song to watch as he pays tribute to black women.
Throughout the album, Virgo shows off his love for music before his time, and with his distinctive voice he always hits the right notes. The only thing missing from the album is a free 'younger' vibe that would also have been nice to see from the youngster showing his diversity. Romain Virgo shows that he is one to watch in reggae music.
