Mightyful13 Records recently signed international reggae artiste Andrew Bees to its label, announced executive producer Fitzroy Francis.
Both Francis and Andrew Bees agreed terms last week with the latter inking his signature a couple days after.
The New York-based record company will now distribute the singer's singles and his upcoming solo album. All the tracks will be distributed through VPAL which had signed a deal with Mightyful13 Records earlier this year.
Under the deal, Mightyful13 Records will release a track on its Essence of Life rhythm. Andrew Bees will also do a tribute to veteran reggae artiste Delroy Wilson for the singles Cool Operator and Better Must Come, which will feature Wilson's daughter Shana. Both songs will be produced by the same label.
This won't be the first time that both men have worked together. It was Francis who had produced Andrew Bees' first released single Things A Go Down in 1991 on the Music Lion Records label, and the singer's breakthrough album 'Militant'. More recently, Andrew Bees voiced Something's Strange on the label's Mighty In Battle rhythm.
Francis, a Jamaican now residing in the States (US), expressed delight at the signing citing it as a major step forward for the record label on the international market.
"I am very optimistic because this gives the label an opportunity to produce even more quality music to the world. Andrew Bees is one of the international successes in today's generation," Francis said.
Something's Strange has enjoyed plenty successes on several reggae charts in the US and UK.
