Dominican born New Jersey-based Reggae singer-songwriter, King Tappa, released his second album, “Feeling the Vibes”, July 11th, 2019. This album comes over a decade after his first release. “Feeling The Vibes” showcases the artist’s growth significantly over the years and is compiled of specially curated works that have been recorded over the past decade.

“…it is basically my hearts work on this album. I think you should expect a great vibe from the album, some feel good, relatable music,” Tappa said

 

The album offers a variety of reggae & dancehall with a twist of modern R&B and Afrobeats with songs such as its title track “Feeling the Vibes”, “Photoshop”, “Beat It Up” and “Selfie” receiving attention locally, as well as from radio stations across the Caribbean and Africa.
