Alkaline new album “New Level Unlocked” debut at No. 1 on Billboard Reggae Album chart. Would have been epic if that was the 200 chart but no reggae artist has done that since Shaggy did it with “Hot Shot” in 2000.
The 14-track album was released on March 25 and has been getting rave reviews among dancehall fans. Alkaline also manages to stir up some controversy where he took shots at aced dancehall deejay Vybz Kartel and his former protege Popcaan on a single title “City.”
Alkaline thanked his fans on Instagram for supporting the album and making it a success.
“Nuff luv and respect to my supporters the wait is over,” the “Champion Boy” deejay wrote. “Go get my album Thank you. All because of you.nuff luv and respect.”
“New Level Unlocked” was produced by DJ Frass and Lee Milla Productions. Bobby V is the only guest feature on the album on a track called “Like Me.” The project is also available on iTunes.
