SOP's Battle of the Bands Featuring Mr. Vegas with "I Am Blessed"

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Lights! Cameras! And it`s Vegas!
(Kingston, Jamaica) - The man who single-handedly ushered in a nation of "daggerers" and caused a generation of tenderfooted dancers and patrons to embrace kumina and beats of yesteryear, has flipped the script yet again. 
Mr. Vegas` affinity for music caused him to take (only) a brief hiatus from the musical frontline; but he has returned with the new single, "I Am Blessed". 

The song echoes Vegas` new musical path, but also highlights his unique way of  altering moth-eaten techniques and transforming them into something current. Within a few seconds telltale signs of the seasoned Church chorus: "I am blessed; everyday of my life I am blessed"  are heard over an uptempo Dancehall organ-fused mix, yet, Vegas also moves on to sing about struggles and negative situations he has encountered throughout his career. 

The artiste who returned from overwhelmingly successful shows in Trinidad and Hartford, Connecticut earlier this week, said, "The reason for this reinvention, is to do more positive music. This project that I`m working on is something that people can really look out for and it`s something that I am already really proud of and happy with."
Born Clifford Smith, the young singjay with over 10 years of experience in the music business is known for his debut hit "Nike Air" followed by equally enormous hits, "Heads High", "Hot Gal Today", "Tek Weh Yuhself", "Hot Wuk", "Daggerin (Wha Di Gal Dem Need)", among others.
"I Am Blessed is the right start to my new drive and I did it for Live Up Records...It`s more of a positive vibe. I think the music is heading down a negative path and I feel that I am one of the artistes who can make a difference. I hope other artistes will see this and realize they don`t have to talk about guns to achieve success," he concluded.
Also, fans in England can look out for a fantastic musical treat from Mr. Vegas in upcoming weeks. His single, "Muss Come A Road" has peaked at the number one position on all Reggae/Dancehall charts in the country and he promises the shows will be nothing short of excellent, after being postponed last year.
