Back to My Roots, the debut album from Portmore-based artiste IamStylezMusic, debuts at number one on the Billboard Reggae Album chart for the week ending September 9.
The album was released on August 18 by Blaze Entertainment Records. It sold over 1,100 copies in opening week.
“I am very excited, grateful and proud of this achievement,” IamStylezMusic told the Jamaica Observer.
“The Back to My Roots album is a direct reflection of my life. Each song is the piece of a puzzle to my past, present and future. This album includes songs about being raised in the ghetto, love stories, friendships, and good times. There is a song on the album for every situation life throws at you,” he said.
A number of producers worked on Back to My Roots including Jay Crazie, Richie Loop, Samacon, Prince Majestic, Natty Don, OGE Beats, Cinema Beats, Fire Production, and True Blue.
