Edwin’s album sales fair
Sales of the 16-track album, which includes the popular Don’t Trust Me, Mmmm, Carnival on My Mind, and Handle Ya Bizniz (road mix) have been fair, taking into account the economic climate.
Edwin told Barbados TODAY that Sweetilicious is his favourite song.
He also shared why he released it.
“The inspiration for the album was also the name of the album It’s About Time; this was from asking supporters online what they thought about me doing an album for the year and most of them said almost the same thing, ‘It’s about time!’. I met with Phil Phillips about doing an album and he suggested [it] be called ‘It’s About Time’,” he said.
Edwin’s decision was also based on the fact that the band had decided they would skip production in 2012. Pushing It, on the Island Mas Riddim, was produced by Peter Coppin at Monstapiece Studios and is doing very well in Trinidad. It also has various artistes on it such as Blaxx, Alison Hinds, Fay-Ann Lyons and Patrice.
Pushing It, Sweetalicious and Don’t Trust Me are also doing very well in markets such as St. Maarten, Bonaire, Curacao, St. Thomas, St. Croix, Antigua, Suriname, Holland and Dominica.
The album also features previous hit tunes and the tribute song to David Thompson, Until we meet again, which was released as a single.
What has he been up to since Crop-Over?
“I’ve been travelling with and without krosfyah, ending the year doing our 23rd anniversary show in Grenada on Old Year’s Night. He performed in Montserrat in December during that country’s Golden Jubilee celebrations. (DS)
