World famous dancehall artist Vybz Kartel is about to release his new EP ‘Numb’ which promises to be another impressive release. Produced by Adidjahiem Records, the album will be officially released on April 28, 2023.
“The name ‘Numb’ came from a conversation I had with my girlfriend/fiancee Sidem. She told me she felt numb without me and the only time she felt whole was when she was playing my music. Right there , I had the idea to do an all-female EP titled ‘Numb’ to represent what women would feel without KARTEL,” the artist explained.
The EP contains a total of 8 tracks, including one feature, a song titled “Home,” sung by the artist’s own protégé, Savage Savo. Touted as ladies, these songs are repertoires they can relate to, highlighting different themes surrounding a single concept.
Based on the concept of the album title, I started writing “Without You”, which is about a girl who loves her boyfriend and would rather die than be without him. That was the first song I wrote for the album, and then I got a beat from Dindin Hempton, he found a perfect sample, a girl singing she’d rather be in the storm than be in the calm without her man middle. That’s basically where the overall theme comes from. This theme is also reflected in “I Just Want You” and “Vaccine,” the entertainer revealed. Other tracks include “About Last Night,” “Play Boy Bunny,” “The Search Is Over,” and title track “Numb.”
As one of the most popular acts at Dancehall today, it’s no surprise that music lovers everywhere are eagerly awaiting what Vybz Kartel has to offer for this project.
“I don’t think I’ve ever released an EP with only girls’ songs, even though women are my biggest audience, so it should be fun,” the entertainer emphasized.
“Numb” will be the next installment in an extensive catalog dating back to the early 2000s. It follows the artist’s latest EP “True Religion”, a 7-track project due out in September 2022. He recently enlisted Dancehall star Valiant to produce the single “Time Heals,” which was released on March 31 and is already a hit in the works.
“Numb” is published by Zojak World Wide and is available for purchase and streaming on major digital platforms including Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer.
