DANCEHALL duo Tanto Metro and Devonte released their latest studio album entitled Sly and Robbie Presents Tanto Metro and Devonte online on Tuesday.

The phsyical copy is slated to hit the shelves on July 9.

The Splash caught up with the entertainers, who delivered a great set at SweatFest held in Montego Bay on the weekend.

"This album is more unique. All 10 tracks are authentic dancehall but there is something for everyone in the family. While the target market is Europe, we are sure that the songs will resonate well with fans in other continents," Tanto Metro told Splash.

Distributed by Zojack Worldwide, among Sly and Robbie Presents Tanto Metro and Devonte's track listings are The Jam, There's a Reward, Maybe I Love You, and She Ran Away.

"Reggae/dancehall is revolving and that is a good thing, so while we keep the genre going we are always thinking of new routes to take the music," said Devonte.

This is the duo's fifth studio album with their debut being Everyone Falls in Love, released in 1997. This was followed by The Beat Goes On, Musically Inclined, and Request, released in 2001, 2006 and 2013, respectively.

The former Shocking Vibes duo are also known for tracks including Gal Say Woii, Better Body, and She Gone.
