International recording superstar Beenie Man will embark on an intensive two week tour in April of the United States where he will perform in several clubs to support his upcoming EP, ‘King in Control: Dweet Again’ album. The tour kicks off on April 9th with Beenie Man performing in Jacksonville, after which he will jet to US cities such as Tampa, Minnesota, and Newbury as he cranks up promotion on his highly anticipated album.
“The EP is coming soon, we are counting on the success of the ‘Dweet Again’ single which is getting a lot of airplay on Irie Jam and other stations in the US. We are presently in discussion with several major labels to distribute the album, and the tour will help to energise Beenie Man’s substantial fan base in the US,” Blue Smith, Beenie Man’s manager, said. The stateside tour climaxes on April 19th. The EP’s lead single, ‘Dweet Again’, released on the Chase Millz-Jah Snowcone label, topped several local and overseas charts. In the meantime, Beenie Man will be releasing an armada of new singles including Hottest Man Alive and Greatest Gallis featuring fellow dancehall superstar Sean Paul. A video for Hottest Man Alive has been released and is in rotation on RE TV, HYPE TV, CVM and MD TV. “We have been getting great feedback to the single, Hottest Man Alive which was directed by Ruption Di Boss. We will also be releasing a new video shot by Roadblock for the ‘Greatest Gallis’ song. These songs have been getting a lot of support on local radio stations so things look great for the Summer,” Smith said. The ‘Doctor’ is booked solid for the next two months with shows which will see him crisscrossing continents with several gigs in North America, South America and the Caribbean. Beenie Man will be busy this Easter weekend as he is slated to headline the fifth staging of the Portmore Seafood Festival on Easter Monday, April 1st at the Greater Portmore football field. Beenie Man will perform during the intermission of a netball test match between the Sunshine Girls and the third-ranked English Roses on April 3rd. He will headline a show alongside fellow superstars Mavado and Lady Saw on April 20th.
