Vybz Kartel finally releases his new highly anticipated single “Western Union.”
The track has already been stirring controversy as “Western Union” is another hustler anthem from the deejay inspired by lottery scamming, a follow-up to his ‘Reparation’ single.
The single is the second track off his forthcoming “King Of The Dancehall” album.
The 14-track project is set to contain only new unreleased material, according to Producer Linton ‘TJ’ White.
Kartel says, “‘King of the Dancehall’ is not a 14 song compilation, it’s a masterpiece, an album that encompasses the very essence of Adidja Palmer and by extension, the Jamaican experience,” stated Kartel (aka Adidja Palmer) in a written statement released to the media.

“‘King of the Dancehall’ “will reinforce Vybz Kartel’s status as not just another self-proclaimed King, but as the people’s champion. The man who has created a movement like no other in Dancehall”
As the title suggests, the album is dancehall to its core. In another part of his statement Kartel, also known to his fans as The Teacha said, “This album will bring its listeners into the world of hardcore DANCEHALL, not some ‘pop music’ watered down version. It will give you a peek into my Jamaica. Not the one on the tourist board ads, but the real Jamaica…DANCEHALL JAMAICA.”
