Big Up Gyptian! His brand new studio album 'Sex, Love and Reggae' dropped October 29 on VP Records, and just hit #1 on Billboard's Reggae chart.

In anticipation of his album release, the reggae star teased fans with his official album trailer, the never-before-heard Melanie Fiona collab “One More Time” and his latest video for the album’s lead single “Vixen” featuring Angela Hunte. On “Vixen,” Gyptian joins forces with the talented singer-songwriter Angela Hunte (who co-wrote the Grammy-winning single Jay Z’s “Empire State of Mind” feat. Alicia Keys). The single, which is co-produced by Jerry Wonda and samples Reggie Stepper’s “Cu-Oonuh,” is currently spinning on Top 40 and Urban radio stations across the United States and United Kingdom and bringing a much-needed dose of reggae back to the airwaves. Gyptian also leaks his new album track “One More Time” featuring the Grammy-winning R&B songstress Melanie Fiona. FUSE.TV exclusively premieres the duet, raving that it “is a treat for fans of reggae, R&B, pop or anyone looking for a sensual, new sex jam.”

Gyptian’s new album Sex, Love and Reggae is a marked departure from the MOBO and Soul Train award-winning Jamaican singer’s previous releases and unveils another layer of his artistry. The musically diverse set – that takes the listener from dancehall to soca to global pop and R&B sounds – follows his 2010 critically-acclaimed album Hold You and its RIAA certified Gold title track. The 17-track set is co-executive produced by Jerry “Wonda” Duplessis, who is known for cranking out hits for superstars such as Miguel, Mary J. Blige, Lupe Fiasco, the Fugees and many more. The album also features guest appearances from Estelle, Major Lazer, Bunji Garlin and Kes the Band.

Just as the title would imply, Sex, Love and Reggae is a spicy and sweet mixture of hits. He displays his playful side with wine-inducing anthems like “Non Stop” and “Wine Slow” (which already received over 7.5 million YouTube views for the lyrics video alone) and reveals his affectionate side on romantic ballads like “Majestic Love” feat. Estelle and the breathtaking rendition of this Gregory Isaacs classic “My Number One.” He even delves outside of the genre and reimagines Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors,” which was part of Chevrolet and MTV Iggy’s “Cover The World” campaign.

“It’s all about being versatile,” Gyptian says of the album, and his perspective on music overall. “For me, there’s no boundaries in music. Pick one—there is a Gyptian song in that category for you.”
