Mr. Vegas hit the #1 spot on the BBC 1 Xtra dancehall chart this week with his smash hot single, “I Am Blessed”, toppling Busy Signal’s Praise & Worship and outshining Laden’s Time To Shine. In the meantime, the single continues to vault up local charts, hovering at #3 on the Jamaica Music Countdown charts, #5 on the HYPE TV charts and at #12 on the OutAroad.com Top 20 Hot Singles Chart and still climbing.
Vegas flirted briefly with the idea of retirement last year, but has revamped his management structure and is ready to go at it again. He has hired a new manager, Khool head honcho Ray Alexander, while jettisoning Irish & Chin, his former managers. The singjay is now turning his attention towards a summer tour and the completion of his new album.
