Wonder comeback - Singer returns with new album
MY Way, singer Wayne Wonder's first album in six years, is scheduled to be released tomorrow by VP Records through his Singso Music label.
The 14-track set is Wonder's first album in six years. He worked with several producers including Tony Kelly (who co-produced Wonder’s Grammynominated album, No Holding Back), Stephen McGregor and Miami-based Riddim Fingaz whose credits include Trey Songz, Sean Paul and Mya.
Mya, the American pop singer who has recorded with Beenie Man, duets with Wonder on If I Ever. Another collaboration on My Way is with Shaggy (Don't Say No).
Wonder is one of the true veterans of modern dancehall, having started his career in the late 1980s. The following decade, he became a key member of producer Donovan Germain's Penthouse Records.
He had several hits for the label including Saddest Day of My Life and Superstar which was done with Buju Banton.
Wonder later teamed with Dave Kelly (Tony's younger brother) whose Mad House label unleashed his Joyride hit in 1997.
His biggest hit, however, is No Letting Go which peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in 2002 and earned his album No Holding Back a Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album the following year.
