This past Monday evening, Jamaican singer-songwriter Romain Virgo returned to NYC for a special album release party and performance at Miss Lily’s Variety Store. The event was broadcasted live on RadioLily.com on DJ Rob Kenner’s Strictly Boomshots show. Romain discussed his recent sophomore release The System and sung his hits to a packed room filled with the reggae industry and fans. Artists Shaggy and Rayvon along with VP Records’ family Miss Pat, Chris Chin and Clive Chin were just a few of the noteable attendees who watched Romain deliver an incredible acoustic set including “Mama’s Song” and “Not Today” off The System. He continued to sing crowd pleasers like “I Am Rich In Love” and “Live Mi Life” backed by tracks and then belted out a powerful acapella version of the album’s latest single “I Know Better.”
