Cancellations won't affect Alkaline's album sales - DJ Frass
Alkaline's recent tour of the United Kingdom was marred by a series of cancellations, but producer DJ Frass, of the entertainer's Billboard chart-topping album, 'New Level Unlocked', does not foresee sales being affected.
DJ Frass, who worked on the deejay's latest compilation, told THE WEEKEND STAR the recent spate of events involving Alkaine's shows in the United Kingdom was unfortunate.
"No, sah that nah affect album sales because we still putting in the work where that is concerned," he said.
"Remember, the album went number one on the Billboard Reggae Chart and, at the time, Alkaline was in Jamaica so the cancellation of two or three shows won't affect the sales figures."
DJ Frass emphasised that the artiste's team has been keeping the wheels on the promotional bus turning.
"We continue to promote the album everywhere, and it is still doing pretty well so we are not expecting any drastic changes."
The debut album has moved to number seven on the Billboard Reggae Chart.
Alkaline's first two shows in the United Kingdom were cancelled. The first show, scheduled for Bedfordshire, June 3, was cancelled with promoters citing unforeseen circumstances as the reason for suddenly pulling the plug.
Following that cancellation, an event set for June 12, at Troxy, East London, also fell through with promoters giving similar reasons for the sudden cancellation.
When THE WEEKEND STAR contacted the entertainer's management team for an official statement, his manager, Kereena Beckford, said she had no comment.
THE WEEKEND STAR was told to follow-up on the issue as the entertainer's tour manager would contact the news team with a statement. However, on following up, as instructed, there was no further comment.
