Mr Vegas' 'Soul Therapy' to please gospel fans
Mr Vegas stunned the music world late last year with the announcement of his conversion to Christianity weeks after the release of his much-anticipated album, 'This Is Dancehall', which was recently listed by Billboard Magazine as one of the top 10 reggae albums of 2016.
Since then the veteran dancehall star, who is known worldwide for anthems such as Bruck It Dung and Heads High, has been under the microscope as fans and critics ponder what will be his next move.
The award-winning artiste, who is now walking with Christ, is gearing up for the release of his debut 17-track gospel album, titled Soul Therapy.
On the opening track, Vegas is in a penitent mood as his cries out like David asking God for forgiveness on I'm Delivered, featuring Glacia Robinson.
"This album means a lot to me. Without a doubt, it's the best and most fulfilling project that I've ever done. It's a very personal album; it's about my journey and the freedom and happiness that I've found in Christ," he said.
Songs such as We Need You Now, I Come To You, As Long As I Live and You Are Welcome, featuring Jason Edmond, will also hit home with diehard gospel music lovers.
Vegas' original fan base is not to be left out, as Soul Therapy also features several dancehall- and reggae-flavoured tracks such as He Walks With Me, Nobody Greater and Dash It Weh.
"There's something on this album for everyone, and it's my sincere wish that the people who listen to it will hear the message of God and receive their deliverance," he said.
Soul Therapy will be released on iTunes and all other leading online music platforms, and on CD, on February 24.
