Caribbean Pulse get­ting good re­sponse with ‘ Blessed’

The Star (Jamaica) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Cal­i­for­nia- based Reg­gae group Caribbean Pulse re­cently re­leased a brand­new sin­gle ti­tled ‘ Blessed’.

The sin­gle was launched a few weeks ago on Barry G’s show on Mello FM.

Ac­cord­ing to the group’s leader Wil­liam Smith, aka Billy, the re­sponse to Blessed has been very good.

“Not hav­ing a sin­gle out for al­most nine years, we didn’t quite know what to ex­pect. We were all a lit­tle bit ner­vous, but we knew that Blessed is a good song and we hoped the peo­ple would like it. So far, the re­sponse to the sin­gle has been very pos­i­tive. It’s get­ting a fair amount of air­play in Ja­maica and we haven’t fully cranked up our pro­mo­tion ma­chin­ery on the is­land as yet. Blessed is also get­ting good vibes in the US, Hawaii and Belize.”

Now that Blessed has been re­leased, Caribbean Pulse will fo­cus their at­ten­tion on the com­ple­tion of their third al­bum, Yes­ter­day, which is slated to be re­leased in 2014.

“We’re work­ing on our new al­bum ..., which will be out early next year. This al­bum will fol­low in the vain of our pre­vi­ous al­bums, as we bring the peo­ple more good reg­gae mu­sic.

For this al­bum, we are look­ing to push the en­ve­lope a bit, be­cause we want to show­case the di­ver­sity of the group and give the peo­ple some re­ally great mu­sic,” said Billy.

He added, “We wanna drop the video for Blessed be­fore Christ­mas. It’s one of the main things that we want to get done right now, so we can send it out to strengthen the pro­mo­tion of the song.”
