Fresh off his very prolific album announcement, Billboard charting recording artiste Alkaline this past weekend conducted a very memory performance in Tampa, Florida treating fans to what he called a ‘Best Of Alkaline’ experience for hundreds of concertgoers.
Alkaline broke his 15 month stage absence, on Saturday February 20th, on the grounds of the SD Lawn on Falkenburg Road. Fans flocked in numbers from near and far paying various entry fees ranging from $50 – $150 USD to spend an intimate 30+ mins with the young Dancehall starlet.
The ‘Top Prize‘ singer entered center stage in champion-like manner commanding the crowd with his first few lines;
“Weh the champion dem deh inna Tampa Bay…one bagga gold medal pon me ee no, champion boy yu know how the damn ting go!”chanted Alkaline

In other recent news, Alkaline has revealed via print and digital media of his imminent 14 – tracked album entitled “Top Prize” which is slated for a Spring 2021 release.
The 14-track album which will further demonstrate his creativity, growth, and unforgettable presence as a lyricist, is guaranteed to secure all the accolades attributed to his debut project, even more. Unstoppable since his meteoric rise to the top shelf of Dancehall, amidst mounting opposition and constant criticism, Alkaline, is the most successful influential independent artiste to emerge from the Caribbean in recent history. His upcoming album will showcase his mastery of the field in a time when innovation seems to be low.
“THIS ALBUM IS TIMELY AS WITH MY EXPERIENCES, THE LESSONS LEARNED AND GROWTH OVERTIME, IT IS ONLY FAIR THAT I BRING EVERYTHING FULL CIRCLE. ALL THE DETTA FANS WHO HAVE BEEN A PART OF THE MOVEMENT FROM DAY ONE WILL APPRECIATE IT AND EVEN THOSE WHO HAVE JUST COME TO REALIZE THE FACT WILL ENJOY IT… IT BAD! LOL” .ALKALINE STATES
Strategic in his mysterious persona, he has spent time focused on what matters – music and memorabilia, releasing tracks with accompanied visuals throughout 2020 with much fanfare. Alkaline commands a sizable presence on digital platforms in markets such as the USA, UK, Africa, Canada, and Latin America.
Evidence of this is seen in his continued record-breaking statistics for the genre with a strong millennial and gen-z fanbase, topping multiple charts with equally impressive single sales and streaming numbers. This, as he says, is all part of his empire.
In true Alkaline fashion, the artiste has made available the lead single for the upcoming album, as he continues to work with and support both established and upcoming producers in the industry. The single, which is coined off the album’s name, Top Prize is currently available on all digital streaming platforms (https://lnk.to/topprize).
