Deejay Chuck Fenda’s new album Fulfilment is charting at number 7 on iTunes in the United Kingdom up to Friday, but not in the US or any other iTunes country market despite promotion.
It isn’t necessarily a poor reflection on Fulfilment which was released October 26, as few living Jamaicans are currently charting on iTunes reggae album charts. ITunes is a popular online music store and has listed charts in 22 country markets. The reggae album charts are dominated by Bob Marley who tops the UK and 17 other country iTunes markets. The charts however are fluid especially in the later half of the top 10 where movement does occur within hours.
Last week, Fenda after completing a two-week promotional tour of the United States and Canada, returned to the island to commence plans for his official album launch. Fulfilment, the third full length album from the deejay, will be launched November 10 in Jamaica. This, is his follow-up to Better Days, and Living Fire.
Fulfilment with 15-tracks is said “to soothe the souls of an economically battered nation while reaching out to his international fan base”. The album was produced by Kemar ‘Flava’ McGregor of No Doubt Records, Shane Brown of Juke Boxx Productions and Marvin.
Fenda is currently promoting three singles, namely I Am For The Poor, Cold For The Money and Bad Boy featuring Sammy Dread, and the tracks are said to be in rotation in the US, Europe, Canada and the Caribbean.
