Xyclone gets Billboard success
Dancehall artiste Xyclone is celebrating the success of his album, 'From The Basement To The Big Leagues', which topped the Billboard Reggae Album Chart earlier this week.
"It's every musician's dream to top any major charts. When I debuted at number 14 in December last year, I was driven to raise my numbers. I'm happier to make the people around me proud and they are very excited for me," Xyclone said.
Getting a number one album on the Billboard chart isn't an easy feat for most artiste, so Xyclone is grateful for the support he has received from fans.
"Having a number one album signifies that I'm a legitimate contender in reggae music when it comes to marketing and sales. My fans and supporters buy music," he said.
From The Basement To The Big Leagues was released in December 2016. It debuted at number 14 on the Billboard chart then rose to number 12 in January. It fell off the chart and re-entered at number one this week. The album contains 10 songs, including How Yuh Bad Suh, Ambition, Wanna Dance and Tell The Truth, featuring Star Cole.
"Topping any chart on Billboard will open up more doors, like working with major names that I wouldn't have had the opportunity to work with before and continue promoting this album. I think we can remain in the top five for more weeks to come," Xyclone said.
With the album doing well, Xyclone plans to continue on the current momentum with new releases.
"I am focused on the single How Yuh Bad Suh, which I just remixed with Timomatic from Australia and my new rhythm. I am not really focused on new music right now. I'm promoting the songs on my Billboard-topping album to the highest margins before moving on," he said.
