Reggae Interviews Romain Virgo
DJ 745 sat down with Jamaican reggae star Romain Virgo for an exclusive, in-depth conversation about his brand new album The Gentle Man in Kingston, Jamaica. Romain spoke from the heart on his childhood in Stepney, St. Ann and the morals and values that are so important to the works he does today.

The Gentle Man is Romain Virgo’s most candid body of work to date. The singer questions, deconstructs, and affirms his beliefs, sharing clear-eyed perspectives across a dozen tracks. He challenges what it means to be a man in Caribbean culture, explores the highs and lows of ‘Afromantic’ relationships, and, in the process, blends classic, foundational sounds with modern sonics.

With production credits from Donovan ‘Don Corleon’ Bennett, Oliver ‘Cadenza’ Rodigan, Phillip ‘Winta’ James, Romeich Major, Maurice ‘Seani B’ Delauney, Nicholas ‘Niko’ Browne, among others, The Gentle Man builds on Romain’s soul-stirring reggae palette, closing the gaps between roots reggae, lover’s rock, Afrobeats, and more.

He’s joined by dancehall phenom Masicka on the album opener, Been There Before; delivers a heartfelt tribute to single mothers with Nigerian reggae-fusionist Patoranking (I Believe); and closes out the album with hard-hitting features from the multi-generational Jamaican talents Jesse Royal (Bridges) and Capleton (You Must Pay).
