ANDREW BEES Scores First No.1 Single on New York Top 30 Music Chart


ANDREW BEES Scores First No.1 Single on New York Top 30 Music Chart

Old time something come back again! 41years after the release of Delroy Wilson's revered reggae song "Better Must Come" spread through out Jamaica and 18 years after his passing, Andrew Bees' tribute single to the reggae legend creates history making it Bees' first #1 hit in its 13th week on Foundation Radio Network/New York Top 30 Music Chart.

Just a week prior to the song topping the chart, for the first time since recording the tribute and its release, Andrew Bees in a candid interview with Empress Skortcher of Global Linkz Radio, explained the significance of him recording "Better Must Come."

Bees explained that while he was an infant at time of its release, his father "Marmalade" later gave him the history regarding the song being used in 1972 as a political campaign theme song to bring hope and motivation to the struggling people of Jamaica and his Waterhouse community.

Bees said that it was while chilling off stage on a tour with Black Uhuru in September 2012 that his long time protege Fitzroy Francis was singing the song thus creating the inspiration for recording it as a tribute to the Reggae Icon came to mind. The two carried out the project with Francis producing it on his Mightyful13 Record Label. It was officially released on November 2012 digital worldwide by via VP Records Vpal Dist.
