Words by Jesse Serwer, via MTV Iggy—
After a heavy two-year run of hits, one of dancehall’s biggest new names, I-Octane, is finally dropping an album. Crying for the Nation (VP/Scikron), featuring past hits like “Nuh Love Inna Dem” and a batch of mostly roots-y previously unreleased material like “Vanity Will Come,” is out Tuesday, Feb. 14. If you can’t wait til then, you’re in luck, ’cause the folks folks at MTV Iggy (good looks on posting our Acmatic webisode!) are streaming the entire album here, up until the release date.
And Octane isn’t slowing his productivity down: Today comes a video for the non-album single “Til Kingdom Come,” featuring Chan Dizzy. With some atmospheric, hip-hop-flavored production from our dude Russian, and an infectious hook from Octane, we can see this being one of his biggest tunes yet.
