Romain Virgo – Fade Away | VP Records Artiste Showcase Directed by: Garth Von Glehn of Film Fam, LLC. VP Records Artiste Showcase is a series, in which the world’s leading reggae & soca label, presents the past, present and future of each respective genre. A platform, where legends are celebrated and birthed. The 25-year-old Jamaican singer-songwriter Romain Virgo returns with a brand new EP Lifted on Oct 30, 2015 on VP Records. Virgo unveils hope behind darkness on this concsious 8-song set filled with social commentary. He holds strong with “God Inna Mi Corner” and weeds out fake friends on “Fade Away” featuring dancehall artist Assassin. While showcasing his dee-jay skills on the EDM-tinged reggae track “Badder Man,” he reveals the gripping realities of a rudeboy and opts for a different way of life. “I don’t mix up with da criminal dem, me a gwan stick to mi gal dem. I don’t care who a buss this, who a buss that, me don’t want no strap,” as he sings in the song’s closing lyrics. To pay homage to his ladies, Virgo then offers a few ballads on his EP – including his latest romancer “Stars Across The Sky,” his Sam Smith cover of “Stay With Me” (which recieved over 2.4 mil YouTube views for its accompanying visual) and ” Soul Provider” (racking in nearly 4 mil YouTube video views). This will give listeners a feel of his 2016 album entitled Love Sick (VP Records), which is a heartfelt collection mostly comprised of love songs. Lifted follows his critically acclaimed 2012 album The System, which was described as “striking” (Washington Post), “high-quality” (BBC) and “smooth and engaging” (New York Times). Billboard also proclaimed he has “empowering messages over misogynistic and violent lyrics, intricately textured one-drop rhythms instead of frenetic digital beats” and he has “found an appreciative, multi-generational audience.” Download the “LIFTED” EP: http://smarturl.it/LIFTEDEP Follow Romain Virgo: https://www.facebook.com/RomainVirgo https://twitter.com/RealRomainVirgo https://instagram.com/realromainvirgo/
