More than half the tracks on Busy Signal’s upcoming album “Reggae Music Again” has leaked online resulting in his management team scrambling to do damage control.
The 17-track LP is due in stores on April 24, and some 10 songs off the tracklisting surfaced online last week. Despite the leak, Busy Signal’s manager, Shane Brown, said it will not affect album sales.
“A lot of people are not buying from our side of the world, yet still you have a lot of people who want to buy it because what is online is not necessarily the best quality,” Shane Brown said.
Brown said they look at the leak as another form of marketing and building awareness of the album.
“It is not anything big on our side. Sometimes it’s more flattering than anything else. It is an awareness of the album also,” Brown said.
The leaked singles uploaded on Youtube recently includes the title track Reggae Music Again, Sweetest Life, Kingston Town, Jah Love and Wicked Man.
