CONSCIOUS reggae singer A-Game is hoping to cement his spot in the genre come 2016.

He is banking on his debut album
Real n’ True slated for release in February. Produced by Vern Hill, the compilation will feature 12 tracks, including his popular lead single No Time Fi Badmind.

"The album will target all listeners and lovers of music worldwide — of all ages and walks of life," the 23-year-old told the Jamaica Observer.

"It’s been structured very flexibly, while still maintaining my style. And I promise you, everyone who hears it will love and appreciate it. The album is a summary of my experiences between 2013 and 2015. It will tell a few stories and also give an idea of my perceptions based on my experiences during that period. All of that fused, of course, with my general message which is hard work, ambition, and appreciation for life," he continued.

Other tracks on the set include A-Game Everyday, Braver Now, No Conscience and No Games.

A-Game said he is planning to a tour of the United Kingdom to promote the set.

"An all-island high school tour, along with many other ventures, are also in the pipeline for early 2016," he said.

The reggae singer said despite the current trend of doing EPs and mixtapes, he opted for an album as he has the body of work.

"I just feel like I have a responsibility to my fans, and not necessarily to the industry and how they say it should be done. You don’t do an album until you reach to a certain level and you have a certain amount of fans. But I feel like I just need to give my listeners a solid body of work right now. After doing a mixtape in 2014, a lot of people requested a good amount of songs that they can listen to and feel the music," he said.

The former lead singer of Di Blueprint Band, which won the global battle of the Bands in 2012, A-Game was recently featured on shows such as Chronixx’s Capture Land Jamaica Tour Pt 2.

A-Game (given name Alex Gallimore) hails from St Ann. He attended William Knibb High School, then moved to Kingston to pursue his dream of becoming a musician at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts.
