Let the love party begin! As many of us approach the one-year anniversary of the life-changing COVID-19 pandemic, Trinidadian soca superstar, Machel Montano reminds us of the power of love.

Celebrating his one-year anniversary with the love of his life, in February 2021, Montano is gifting the world an inside view of his joy through this union, according to this Jamaican-born publicist Ronnie Tomlinson, of he Brooklyn-based entertainment company, Destine Media.

Tomlinson told Caribbean Life on Monday that “The Wedding Album,” which was released on Friday, on all streaming platforms, is “a dedication to Montano’s wife, celebrating their partnership.”

“This album is a dedication to my wife and the wonderful partnership we share and which we celebrate physically, spiritually and culturally,” Montano said. “These songs translate the feelings we experience when we meet, the love when we dance and share space, as well as the joy we find when we are together.”

Known for his fete starter singles and road march rompers, Tomlinson said Montano has “stepped outside his mind and into his heart trusting every direction unknown with this album.”

She said the album is a collection of “slow grooves for easy listening and dancing, with a message of love running straight through.

“Just like a marriage, the theme is about union on multiple levels,” Tomlinson said.

Executive-produced by Montano and Che Kothari, “The Wedding Album” features artists such as Teddy Riley, Afro B, Vybz Kartel, Stacy Barthe, Voice, and DJ Tunez, among others.

“The star-studded album is a masterpiece packaged with love and unity,” Tomlinson said.

Montano said these songs “venture from dancehall to R&B to Afrobeat, all infused with that sweet soca.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to work with the artists I’ve collaborated with, and it’s an honor to sing side by side with such highly-rated creatives whom I look up to and I’m a big fan of,” he said.
