Romain Virgo steers with Driver
The video for Driver, directed by Sameel "SAMO" Johnson, features Virgo and his lady love in a 1977 MGB GT convertible.

Recording artiste Romain Virgo has announced his latest single, Driver, arriving on March 24, 2023.

The VP Records release marks the singer's follow-up to 2021's Good Woman.

Reggae/dancehall powerhouse Donovan "Don Corleon" Bennett co- wrote and produced Driver, adding fresh gloss and depth to Romain's modern lovers' rock sound.

As Romain bears his soul across the track, he expands his vocal range, packing tender romance and sensual flair into smooth melodies.

Describing the message behind the song, Romain says, "On Driver, I'm captivated by everything about her. I'm reassuring her that, if given a chance, I'll prove to her that I want to be in it for the long run."

The video for Driver, directed by Sameel "SAMO" Johnson, features Romain courting his love interest across the idylls of eastern Jamaica. He embraces her under palm trees, serenades her in caves and lagoons, and escorts her from vista to vista in a 1977 MGB GT convertible.

Romain Virgo spent much of last year delighting live audiences. After a few shows in Jamaica, he kicked off a five-week summer tour that began alongside Christopher Martin in New York for Jerk Festival and Belgium for Reggae Geel. Romain then wrapped up the tour with 17 more dates in the US.

He's expected to announce dates in the Caribbean and US in the coming weeks.

Driver will be available on all streaming platforms via VP Records.

Romain has released three albums to date: Romain Virgo (2010), The System (2012), and Love Sick' (2018).

His music has been streamed more than 57.2 million times on YouTube, 4.5 million times on Spotify, and 24.2 million streams on Pandora.
