Following the success of his 2017 album From the Basement to the Big Leagues , which topped the Billboard Reggae album chart, deejay Xyclone is hoping for bigger things with his upcoming project 2774 Waterford Parkway .

Waterford Parkway is to be released in June. However, Xyclone kicked off the promotions on a recent club tour of Europe.

The gig began on April 6 and ended last week Friday. Among the countries that he performed were Sweden, Spain and England. A few weeks earlier, Xyclone completed a US club tour which stopped in cities including Washington DC, Bronx, West Palm Beach, and Rochester in New York.

“The tour was really to promote my new album that's coming out on June 8. The feedback was positive. Good vibes and a great opportunity to break new music. So, we are just continuing to keep the momentum going until the release,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

“I definitely broke some new ground, tapped into new markets and built on my growing fan base... I plan on using part proceeds from the album to facilitate scholarships to students attending the Waterford Primary School who will be going to high schools next academic year. I want to contribute towards their uniforms and book lists,” he continued.

Xyclone — whose given name is Roje Robinson — resided in Waterford, Portmore, before he migrated to the United States more than 15 years ago.

He is currently promoting How Yuh Bad Suh, Meck It Clap, and Stay with Me.
