Busy Signal is currently enjoying a spike in sales for his latest album Reggae Music Again, as fans scramble to get a copy, fearing will be incarcerated for a while.
Busy Signal was extradited to the United States last week where he will stand trial for absconding bail a decade ago in Minnesota.
VP Records spokesperson, Michelle Williams, told the observer that the album is doing much better since his arrest after a couple weeks of slow sales.
“It’s not been dramatic but I think more people are tuning in to his music because they realise Busy is a good artiste,” Williams said.
Reggae Music Again was released on April 24th and features singles such as Reggae Music Again, Sweetest Life, Kingston Town, Jah Love and Wicked Man.
