Mr. Levy who has undoubtedly, one of the most recognizable voices in reggae, is finishing up what will be his last album due for release in Fall 2011.
“It’s About Time” will be his final and 27th album.
In an interview with TheSTAR, Levy said, “It’s my final album that I’ll be putting out. I’ll still be touring, I’ll be singing and putting out singles, but I don’t think I’m going to put out any album.”
“I don’t look at myself as no veteran artiste, I see myself as a singer in the business who love what I do. All these times you say you not hearing from Barrington Levy, is not like I’m not doing nothing because I’ve been voicing a lot. Believe you me, see the next generation of artistes after Kartel, if I’m up and healthy, I’m going to do something with them because there is no boundary,” he said.
It’s About Time will feature collaborations with Wyclef Jean, Beres Hammond, Buju Banton, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Vybz Kartel and Khago.
Look out for Barrington Levy in his leading role in the upcoming movie “Gangstas,” which will feature his song of same name as the soundtrack.
