Bugle climbs charts with 'Be Yourself'
Following his performance at Reggae On The Hill in Barbados last Sunday, Bugle is now back in Jamaica making final preparations for his upcoming tour.
Bugle is scheduled to depart the island later this month for a three-month stint across Europe, Japan and the United Kingdom. The tour, which commences on June 2, will see the Nuh Compatible singer making his first stop in Hamburg, Germany, before spending several weeks on the continent. From there, he will turn his attention to Japan for a brief stint, then the United Kingdom for four shows in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol, before returning to Europe for the final leg of his sojourn.
"Firstly, I just want to say a special thank you to the people of Barbados for the warm reception I received over the weekend. The performance was great, and what was even more amazing was how quickly patrons caught on to the new material from my latest album," Bugle said
However, before jetting off on his extensive tour, Bugle is billed to headline a concert in Guyana on May 26 as part of that country's 51st independence celebrations.
Meanwhile, on the musical front, his sophomore album, Be Yourself, continues to do well. The Ganja remix featuring Shaggy that was done by international EDM producer and disc jock Henry Fong is currently number 42 on the US Top 100 iTunes chart, while another remix done by the Germaicans has shot to the number 3 spot on the iTunes Hot Tracks Reggae chart. This comes in the wake of his album being added to radio outlets in New Zealand and Australia.
Alluding to his latest accomplishments, Bugle said, "I have put a lot of work into this album, and it's very comforting to see how receptive the fans have been to my latest effort. Furthermore, this is the kind of encouragement that makes you want to push even harder and keep the reggae flag flying high across the globe."
