With his 2016 debut album release “New Level Unlocked” peaking at #1 and spending 18 weeks on the Billboard Reggae Album coveted charts, Jamaican dancehall artiste, Alkaline has become “one of the foremost musical acts redefining the genre,” according to the Manhattan-based Shuzzr entertainment publicity company.

“Now, five years later, after proudly gaining hundreds of millions of streams across all DSP, the Billboard charting artiste will release his second album “Top Prize” during the early weeks of Spring 2021,” Rickardo Shuzzr, Alkaline’s publicist.

“The 14-track album which will further demonstrate his creativity, growth and unforgettable presence as a lyricist, is guaranteed to secure all the accolades attributed to his debut project even more,” he added.

“Unstoppable since his meteoric rise to the top shelf of dancehall, amidst mounting opposition and constant criticism, Alkaline, is the most successful influential independent artiste to emerge from the Caribbean in recent history,” Shuzzr continued. “His upcoming album will showcase his mastery of the field in a time when innovation seems to be low.”

Alkaline said “this album is timely as, with my experiences, the lessons learned and growth overtime, it is only fair that I bring everything full circle.

“All the Detta fans who have been a part of the movement from day one will appreciate it; and even those who have just come to realize the fact will enjoy it,” he added. “It bad! Lol”

Shuzzr said Alkaline offers “various merch options to fans through his online retail store, www.Dettastore.com,” disclosing that Alkaline will be performing in Tampa, Fl on Saturday, Feb. 20.

“We encourage fans to purchase/stream the lead single ‘Top Prize’ as we gear up for the album whilst checking out the variety of options from masks to t-shirts as they prepare to attend the concert,” Shuzzr said.
