Reggae star Sizzla Kalonji latest album “The Scripture” is in stores today (June 21st). The 14 track album is produced by John John and is also available digitally on iTune and Amazon.

Sizzla said this latest effort is to address some perception that Jamaican music is depressing. According to the artiste the album is very positive and spiritual hence being called The Scriptures.

“This title came about spontaneous, a friend (Trev), was listening to the albu]m and suggested that we call it The Scriptures because of the natural inspiration that he was getting from the songs.”

The acoustic album will also have a chapter two follow up later this year according to John John the main producer.

“This album took over a year to complete because we wanted perfection, and trust me the entire world can appreciate this one.”

Sizzla says he will be doing a series of tours in Africa, Japan, Brazil, Guyana, among other countries in the Caribbean to promote the album.
