Caribbean-born reggae artiste Deebzlenuz was recently on the island promoting his new project 'Ride Out', an album that he says tells a love story.

The album was produced by the recording artiste's US-based Skills Kings label and Rasta Camp, situated in London, England. It is distributed by VP Records and is available on iTunes, Amazon and all other digital platforms.

"The album consists of about 11 songs," said the entertainer who was born on the island of Montserrat but migrated to the United States as a teenager. "It's pretty much a love story, a Bonnie and Clyde story which, in the end, went sour and in-between we have a dancehall feel, a little conscious feel."

The first single from the album God Bless Me has been well received here, he said, ever since it was released on July 29. "That's the one we have been pushing. We went to a radio station - SunCity in Portmore - they played the God Bless Me song and so far, so good," he said. "A couple other songs that I think people will catch on to are Never Leave, featuring Vernie, and Papparazzi, that's one of my favourite. The title track, Ride Out, is a really good song."

During his time in Jamaica, the artiste made appearances on several radio stations as well as TVJ and CVM. He also had a launch party in Vere, Clarendon, where he said his previous album got a lot of love. "They showed the love, so I had to show the love back," he said.

He departed the island on Sunday for the United States, where he plans another launch party in the coming days and yet another on the Labour Day weekend in September.
