Dancehall artiste Aidonia has been busy in the studio adding the final touches to his album, Project Sweat, slated for release by the end of this month. But the artiste cannot wait to hit the stage in Catherine Hall, Montego Bay, on Thursday, July 16, to showcase some of his new material.
“The album has a great vibe and we love it. There are 10 songs for the ladies on three different types of tempos on it – the slow and sexy tempo, medium tempo and the fast tempo. Boring Gyal is the first single then Pretty Please, one old song and seven new tracks. The album is actually ready. We are just waiting on the release date,” Aidonia said.
He explains that he is grateful for the opportunity to perform at Reggae Sumfest, as that stage is a platform for artistes to promote their talent.
“Mi love Sumfest. It’s like a promotional tool we as artiste can’t pay for because the whole world will be watching. Every media will be at Sumfest, so just by being there, you’re being promoted in so many other places. Once you do good, the world going see, and if they are pleased, will try to get in contact with you for a show, concert or even a tour, so it’s a great look. Me a go Montego Bay go represent,” Aidonia said.
“Sumfest is a huge show in Jamaica, and it’s a blessing to be performing on the show again. How I prepare for major show like this? I always select the nice songs and debut some new material at the same time. The whole world watch what happens at Sumfest, so you know me always have to go hard. I’m going with confidence, fun, crazy vibe and energy and get the crowd involved in my performance. Montego Bay ready already, so we a medi already.”
Aidonia will share the stage with acts like Lady Saw, Capleton, Spice, Konshens and I-Octane.
