Kes to drop ‘Man With No Door’ on Friday

Written by on March 26, 2024

Trinidadian soca superstar and cultural ambassador Kes is gearing up to drop his latest album “Man With No Door” on Friday, marking his first full-length project in over a decade.

Released by Ineffable Records, the highly-anticipated album promises to deliver a musical journey that transcends boundaries and celebrates the diverse influences that have shaped Kes’s iconic sound.

“Inspired by the concept of creative freedom, ‘Man With No Door’ aims to create a sonic space that unites the myriad worlds explored by Kes throughout his musical odyssey,” Ronnie Tomlinson, the Jamaican-born chief executive officer of the New York-based Destine Media, told Caribbean Life.

“With a blend of colorful melodies, infectious rhythms and diverse styles, the album invites listeners to revel in the richness of musical diversity and discover the common thread that connects us all,” added the Brooklyn resident, an entertainment promotion publicist.

In a standout collaboration, Tomlinson said Kes joins forces with Trinbagonian reggae powerhouse artist Queen Omega on the powerful track “Rise Up.”

“The song serves as a poignant call to action for unity and positive change in a world that is ripe for transformation,” she said. “Through their impassioned lyrics and soul-stirring melodies, Kes and Queen Omega deliver a rallying cry for collective empowerment and upliftment.”

Tomlinson said another highlight of the album is the energetic track “Honeycomb,” a collaboration with the acclaimed Jamaican artist Busy Signal.

Infused with the classic bassline-driven dancehall vibe that Kes and Busy Signal both adore, she said “Honeycomb” embodies the “infectious energy of soca-dancehall fusion and showcases the dynamic synergy between the two talented musicians.”

With a track list featuring 16 vibrant songs, including standout tracks like “Banga”, “Mood” featuring Shaggy, and “Miracle” featuring Tano, Tomlinson said “Man With No Door” promises to be a “compelling showcase of Kes’s artistic evolution and musical prowess.”

“Each song adds a unique hue to the sonic palette of the album, creating a tapestry of sound that reflects the boundless creativity and versatility of Kes as an artist,” she said.

Tomlinson said “Tack Back”, which was released earlier this year, “continues to garner global attention, and reclaims the top spot as the most streamed soca song worldwide and throughout the Caribbean.”

As Kes embarks on this exciting new chapter in his musical journey, she said fans can expect to be taken on a “mesmerizing adventure” through the diverse sounds and flavors of “Man With No Door.”

“With its message of unity, diversity and creative exploration, the album serves as a testament to the power of music to bridge divides and bring people together in harmony,” Tomlinson said.
