Full-Length Studio Album Love Sick Slated for 2016
To pay homage to his ladies, Virgo then offers a few ballads on his EP – including his latest romancer “Stars Across The Sky,” his Sam Smith cover of “Stay With Me” (which recieved over 2.4 mil YouTube views for its accompanying visual) and ” Soul Provider” (racking in nearly 4 mil YouTube video views). This will give listeners a feel of his 2016 album entitled Love Sick (VP Records), which is a heartfelt collection mostly comprised of love songs.
It has been eight years since Romain Virgo became the youngest winner of TVJ’s popular Rising Stars – Jamaica’s equivalent to American Idol. In this time frame, Romain recorded his debut self-titled album with several chart-topping reggae hits (“Can’t Sleep” and “Wanna Go Home”) and his sophomore album The System. He has won numerous awards within the Caribbean community – including Entertainer of the Year by The Jamaica Recording Industry Association (JaRIA) and the Prime Minister’s Youth Award for Excellence in his native country. He made history again as the first Jamaican artist to perform at Academy of Country Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee – where he sung his Reggae’s Gone Country rendition of “All The Gold In California” alongside original vocalists The Gatlin Brothers. His new EP Lifted and his 2016 album Love Sick will continue to show his range as a singer and as one of Jamaica’s brightest stars.
