Dancehall icon Beenie Man will be making his return to the United States of America this summer.
Booked for his first appearance at the 2022 edition of the ‘Lets Get Fr.ee Conscious Carnival’, the dancehall doctor is listed among the headliners for the two-day festival slated to unfold on Saturday, August 20 to the 21 at the Flushing Meadows Corona Park in New York.
The event features over forty-six performers, including Wizkid, Missy Elliott, Anderson .Paak and Jhené Aiko.
The revelation indicates that the U.S authorities have lifted the restriction placed on Beenie Man that impeded him from travelling to the North American state. The Grammy-winning artist was among several Jamaican entertainers who had their U.S visas revoked in recent years.
Meanwhile, announcing that his SIMMA album is completed, the dancehall hitmaker has secured a deal with VP Records to handle the project’s legalities, marketing, and distribution. This was confirmed by the label’s Director of Corporate Communications, Natasha Von Castle. However, she was unable to give a definitive timeline for the album’s release.
Before his U.S exploits, Beenie Man will take centre stage at this year’s Reggae Sumfest in Catherine Hall, Montego Bay in July.
