Reggae singer Patcha Blacks is looking forward to a bright future in music.
The Westmoreland-born artiste, who resides in Canada, is currently working on his debut album. The 12-track project, which is being produced by Tasjay Productions, is slated to be released in September.
"I'm very excited about this project; we're recording some good songs. This album is going to be a winner," said the artiste.
Patcha Blacks believes that the album will help him to gain a firm foothold on the international music scene.
"We're going to target the international market with this album. We want to make a big impact in places like Europe, the UK, Africa and Japan. We're putting together an eclectic mix of reggae and dancehall tracks, and I'm sure the fans are going to love it," Patcha Blacks said.
Patcha Blacks is currently promoting the first single off the album, a groovy lovers' rock song called Magnet to Steel.
The song was produced by Tasjay Productions and was released last month. Since then, it has enjoyed steady rotation both locally and overseas.
"My new single is doing well; it's getting a lot of support from DJs all over the world. I'm getting a lot of positive feedback about it from my fans online as well," he said.
Patch Blacks is also making preparations to shoot a video for the song.
"I'm putting everything in place to shoot the video for Magnetic to Steel. I plan to shoot it when I visit Jamaica in July," he said.
