Andrew Bees 'Better Must Come' climbing charts

(Jamaica)


More than 40 years after the release of Delroy Wilson's revered reggae song 'Better Must Come', singer Andrew Bees has, for the fourth week running, enjoyed the number-one spot on the New York Foundation Radio Network (FRN) Top 30 Music Chart with a tribute single in honour of the icon.


The tribute also holds the number- 13 spot on the South Florida's Top- 25 Reggae Chart.

An official video, directed by California-based Soul Reggae film company, was also released earlier in the year.

The singer said he was extremely pleased to have recorded his first number one as a solo act.

"Of course, I am pleased. I have always been an admirer of the 'Cool Operator', both his music and personality. The tribute is a symbol of my respect for one of reggae music's pioneer artistes," Bees said.

Better Must Come was released in the early 1970s as a political theme song to bring hope and motivation to the struggling people of Jamaica and Wilson's Waterhouse community.

Even 18 years after his passing, the song still remains a reference point when one mentions the name Delroy Wilson. Bees, lead vocalist of the iconic and Grammy-winning reggae group Black Uhuru, was first introduced to the song as an infant.

The tribute, which was produced by Fitzroy Francis' Mightyful13 Records, was officially released in November on all major digital outlets worldwide by VP Records' VPAL Distribution.

Since 2012, Andrew Bees has once again rededicated to his solo career. He signed with the New York-based record company late last year and has so far gained waves of success as a soloist since his first single, Something Strange, on the 'Mighty In Battle' rhythm, which was produced by Mightyful13 Records.

The song spent 22 weeks on the FRN charts before topping out at number eight.

The smooth-sounding reggae chanter is scheduled to visit the island in a couple of weeks to promote the tribute and spend quality time with his Jamaican family, friends and fellow music mates.
