Tad’s Records to release Vybz Kartel compilation

TAD'S Record is set to release Colouring Book, a compilation of the biggest radio and street anthems of 2011 from Vybz Kartel.

In keeping with Kartel's controversial nature and unrestricted lyrical prowess, the album will feature both the raw and edited versions of 12 of the deejay's hit singles. Colouring Book will hit digital outlets on July 19.

According to Tad's, Colouring Book shows off the many shades of Vybz Kartel, from the playful feel-good anthem Summer Time, and the spiritually uplifting Jah Love We. Other stand-out tracks include Look Pon We, featuring producer/deejay Russian, and Kartel's freestyle monster The Lyricist.

The album gets its title from Kartel's controversial single Colouring Book (Tattoo Time Come). Vybz Kartel set off a media firestorm worldwide this year for lightening the complexion of his skin to heighten the colour of his tattoos. On Colouring Book, Kartel thumbs his nose at critics by proudly proclaiming "mi skin pretty like a colouring book".

"Many people joke that Kartel is 'Jamaica's Michael Jackson,' but in all seriousness he really has become larger than life — even on an international level, if you mention dancehall, the conversation immediately turns to Vybz Kartel," says Tad's Record founder Tad A Dawkins. "We've put out a series of Kartel compilations and all of them have been wildly successful. We have no doubt that Colouring Book will be another one of our best sellers."

Colouring Book's production credits include Adidja 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer, Tarik 'Russian' Johnston, Ainsley 'Notnice' Morris, Shawn 'ZJ Chrome' Cabal, and Linton 'TJ' White.
