US-based reggae artist, King Isaac, has revealed his plans to release two singles in the first week of next month for Valentine’s Day.
King Isaac said he will treat his fans with a new track titled Time for Love featuring Nicholar as a Valentine’s gift.
The second song will be a Jiti song titled Mukoma Woye.
“We have great plans for the first quarter of 2024 with the release of two singles and a video for one of them.
“The two singles are namely ‘Time for Love’, a duet that I did with Nicholar and a Jiti song called Mukoma Woye. These two songs are coming out on February 1st in time for Valentine’s Day.
“On February 3, we will have a live stream of the launch of these two songs and of the video for ‘Time for Love.’
“I’ll be performing the songs, including some of the people’s favourites from my catalog,” he said.
The ethnomusicology lecturer will be releasing an album this year titled ‘Legends of Reggae Present King Isaac.’
He said the album contains songs he did with Jamaican musicians Gregory Isaacs, Leroy Sibbles, Sugar Minott, U Roy, Frankie Paul, Chaka Demus, Pam Hall and Dean Fraser.
“We had a very good year last year, but it would have been much better if our music had gotten the attention of the other radio stations.
“So far, Classic263 Radio and Radio Zimbabwe have been behind us consistently but I can’t say the same of the other stations.
“I am hoping that as we submit music to the other stations we will meet with opportunities for the music to be heard.
“There will be quite several releases this year. We have started with the two singles that I mentioned that will be a few more singles that we will release later on and then a major release of an album called, ‘Legends of Reggae Present King Isaac.”
‘This album contains songs that I recorded with major reggae artists such as Gregory Isaacs, Leroy Sibbles, Sugar Minott, U Roy, Frankie Paul, Chaka Demus, Pam Hall and Dean Fraser,” he said.
“I am excited to share this album with the people in Zimbabwe and around the world. It represents the work that I have been doing over the years and the warm and wonderful reception I have enjoyed amongst some of the top reggae artists from Jamaica.
“I am forever grateful for their encouragement and appreciation of my work as a singer and songwriter, and for their willingness to work with me.”
