Little Hero hopes for More Love
Reggae singer Hero is seeking to duplicate the success of his Revelation album which topped the Billboard reggae charts two years ago.
Hero is anticipating a repeat of that feat with his soon-to-be-completed second album, More Love
"This album is even stronger than the Revelation album in terms of composition, musicianship, and production. It's more well put together because we spent much more time on it. The first one guh Billboard,
suh wi want a repeat of that with this one," he told Splash.
Among the songs which are to be featured on the album are the Buju Banton-inspired Voice Of The Innocent, Take Me Away, Signs Of Tomorrow, and Double Wrong. Various musicians and producers have contributed to the production the album, which is to be released on the Inspire label.
Hero will be travelling to the US to put finishing touches on album, which includes various collaborations with reggae heavyweights. Several tracks have already been completed, and Hero says he will be spoiled
for choices when it comes to selecting the final tracks for the album which is set to be released on May 6.
In 2009, Little Hero's Revelation brushed aside a UB40 Greatest Hits collection to debut the number one position spot on the Billboard Reggae charts, the first time the artiste had accomplished such a feat in his career.
Little Hero has been steadily adding to his repertoire of hits, making an indelible mark on international reggae charts with his distinctive and powerful vocals. He has scored hits such as Inna Di Ghetto,
Praise God, No More War, Prayer Time and his hit God Alone.
For the remainder of 2011, Hero plans to put out the best quality music that he can produce to propel his name back into the minds of the reggae fans.
"If mi nuh feel like is a No 1 song mi a do, mi nah guh forward with that song. If mi nuh think the people ago tek to it, I'm not doing it. That's the plan for this year," he said.
Hero's US tour kicks off on March 18 in Sacramento, California and will cover most major cities in the US.
