Christopher Martin: « Big Deal » – Album Now Available
Christopher Martin is a big deal. The soulful singer is already hugely popular in his home island of Jamaica and other key reggae markets for what he calls “real-life music”: Earnest, honest songs about everyday realities. Now, with the release of his debut album for VP Records, entitled Big Deal, he’s set to solidify his place on the world stage, too.
Throughout his career, Chris has demonstrated a talent for singing about regular, everyday topics in a fresh and new way — a talent that’s on full display on Big Deal. The album compiles Martin’s biggest recent hits, including “Cheater’s Prayer” and “I’m a Big Deal,” along with new songs like “One Life,” a collaboration with viral Jamaican entertainer Tanto Blacks, and “Easy Like Sunday Morning,” a Jamaican answer to The Commodores’ classic. “My Love” is a fusion of dancehall, pop and reggaeton that’s been getting spins in Latin America, while “Under the Influence” (featuring U.K. rapper Chip) is a passionate love song delivered over a foreboding dancehall rhythm. He spices up his repertoire even more with R&B-flavored suggestive single « Magic, » produced by Martin himself, as well as on « Love Distance Lover » featuring newcomer Destiny Moriah.
