Reggae artiste Tilibop is ramping up promotions towards the official launch of his album titled ‘I Am Reggae’ with a series of pre-launch live appearances in New York and New Jersey over the next three weeks.
"This album is an instrument for social change and reggae is really vibrant now in New York. The reggae community has really responded well to the album, we have vinyls of the album for sale, and thumb drives, hoodies, t-shirts and other merchandising," Tilibop said.
He will be performing at the Sands Bar and Grill in Queens, NY, Wednesday, then at Footprints on December 7 in Brooklyn, New York. He will complete his tri-state run with performances at the Shrine in Harlem, NY, on December 8, and the Multiverse Studio in E Orange, New Jersey, on December 17.
"Live reggae music is back in New York, the people dem hungry for the message," he said.
Tilibop is promoting the ‘I Am Reggae’ 11-track debut album, which will be officially released on January 1, 2023, and features stand out songs such as ‘Pirate’, ‘Psalms’, ‘All That’ and ‘Promise’.
The artiste — whose real name is Marvin Amos — said he gained an appreciation for music as a young child from St Mary. He grew up in August Town and later attended Mona High School where he began to impress his peers with his vocal skills before launching out with his special brand of positive reggae music. He migrated to the United States in 2016.
He came to national prominence with ‘Two o Clock’ a few years ago before finding an even bigger audience with his 2020 anthem ‘All That’.
His other songs include 'Neva Book fi It' featuring Beenie Man, and 'Naomi Campbell' featuring Konshens.
