Chozenn preps for year-long tour, new album
Reggae gospel artiste Chozenn is preparing to release his sophomore album and also to hit the road for an entire year, as he carries out his mandate to spread the gospel globally.
The new album, Culture Invasion, will be ready for a summer release.
Although the name may suggest otherwise, the artiste answered in the affirmative when asked if the album was full gospel.
For this project, Chozenn has collaborated with producer Rohan 'Patexx' Rankine, who has credits on Shaggy and Sting's Grammy award-winning album 44/876.
Rankine's Journey Music Production made its debut with the Rum and Boom rhythm project that features Dovey Magnum's Bawl Out, the same song of which Chozenn did a controversial remake.
Culture Invasion represents the first time that Rankine is producing a gospel album.
For Chozenn, this album comes two years after his 2017 critically acclaimed debut, Unashamed; it was comprised of 12 tracks.
Chozenn, whose single Bawl Out For Jesus was recently nominated in the Gospel Song of the Year category by the International Reggae and World Music Awards, expressed his gratitude for the recognition.
"I give thanks for this nomination. It is a manifestation of the fruits," he said.
The entertainer is also eagerly anticipating his year-long tour of the US, which is scheduled to kick off in May, and while he may not necessarily visit all 50 states, his schedule is looking to be quite hectic.
"I will be headlining the tour with supporting guests. There will also be the UK and Poland in the mix leading into next year, after which we will be heading to the Caribbean," he said.
Confirmed for some of the stops is fellow gospel artiste, Prodigal Son.
