Gentleman – This Is Love | Strictly The Best Vol. 56 | Official Audio
VP Records’ iconic “Strictly the Best” compilation series is back with two new albums (Volume 56 & 57) that set the standard in today’s hottest Reggae and Dancehall music. Volume 56 is OUT NOW!
Volume 56 features current and emerging lover’s rock and roots reggae jams such as “Trouble” from Romain Virgo and “Better than the Stars” from Christopher Martin, in addition to exclusives such as “This Is Love” from Gentleman, “Smile from Jah-Lil, and “No Soul, No Heart, No Love” from Junior Kelly. Other standouts include ‘Hustling’ by Huntington Beach California based band Simpkin Project who recently released their album “Beam of Light” on Dub Rockers label (A VP Records imprint) on September 29th. Newcomer Spiritual’s passionate ‘Time has Come’ is also a gem on the compilation. A new remix to ‘Would you Love Me’ by Grammy nominated band Raging Fyah featuring Brazil’s Cidade Negra and Queen Ifrica’s ‘All That I’m Asking’ and more bring the album full circle.
The concept of the cover, designed by illustrator Kim Wells (@kimwellsill) veered into the world of hyper-realism with a unique air and delicate quality, incorporating graphic elements representing sound wave movement.
“Strictly the Best” continues to be one of our most anticipated releases each year due to its ability to maintain a loyal following while being the perfect introduction for those new to reggae and dancehall,” said Christopher Chin, President of VP Records. “The 2017 editions have a nice balance popular and rising artists as well as exclusive tracks for a great listening experience.”
