Aidonia's 'Project Sweat' jumps to No. 39 on iTunes
Despite not officially released to the public, his debut EP, Project Sweat, has soared to the No. 39 spot on the iTunes 200 Album Chart within a day's announcement that the compilation was available to consumers who wish to pre-order.
An elated Aidonia said he was pleased with the revelation and expects even greater things on its official release.
"This is my first EP and to see it making such an impact I can only imagine what will happen on August 28 when it's officially released to the public. we put a lot of work into this project so it's good to see that the fans are appreciative. Respect to everyone that has been supporting Aidonia from day one, make sure to get a copy of the EP and continue to support authentic dancehall," Aidonia said.
Executively produced by 4th Genna Music and distributed by 21st Hapilos, Project Sweat features 11 tracks, exclusively for women, and will be released on major digital platforms. The local album-release party is set for Wednesday, September 2, at Gallis Wednesday HQ.
Shot under the watchful eyes of Xtreme Art, an official video for the lead single Nuh Boring Gyal will premiere with the release of the EP.
Meanwhile, the Run Road deejay recently spoke out about the mindset that artistes have to flood the airwaves with 'disposable music' in order to be perceived as being 'hot' and 'running the place'. He said music must be about quality, not quantity,
"Me nuh haffi have hundred song fi prove seh mi a run the place ... because a man can have hundred song and mi find one weh kick weh the hundred ... all it takes is one," Aidonia said.
