The King of Lover’s Rock, Maxi Priest is releasing a new album


Priest’s musical career began with him singing on the South London reggae soundsystem Saxon Studio International. He released his first major album ‘Maxi Priest’ in 1988. “Close To You” became American Billboard number one in 1990 making him one of only two British reggae acts (along with UB40) to achieve that status. He has worked with Shaggy, Beres Hammond, Shabba Ranks and many other big artists.

Maxi Priest Album Release Party was hosted by Pat McKay famous for her Caribbean program on SiriusXM called “The Joint” and sponsored by reggae music powerhouse VP Records and the Jamaica Tourist Board.

2 hours after scheduled time Maxi Priest finally made his appearance. “I want to give thanks to God and all the West Indians out there,” Priest greeted. “Tonight is a musical experience. We own this culture and we have to bring it together and keep it together,” he said and gave a preview of his latest album, “Easy To Love.” He revealed the new album features music legends Sly and Robbie and a duet with Beres Hammond.

Later in the event singer/actor Leon came by interacting with Priest before posing for pictures with guests.

Easy to Love will be released in early June and Priest will schedule to perform at BB King’s Club in Manhattan on Wednesday, June 11 and will make a guest appearance at Jamaican Jerk Festival in Roy Wilkins Park, Queens on Sunday, July 20
