Wanye Marshall for 106 & Park, August 27

After dropping his critically acclaimed album, 'Tru Colors', and touring the globe alongside Stephen 'Ragga' Marley this year, Wayne Marshall is poised to take his sound to the next plateau.

On August 27, the Jamaican dancehall singer will make his national TV debut performance on BET's '106 & Park' for its special Caribbean Carnival takeover episode.

That same week, he plans to drop his hip hop-flavoured video (directed by Maybach Music's Jon J) for the album's latest single, Go Harder.

The multi-talented singjay shot the video in sunny Miami, featuring artiste Waka Flocka, Ace Hood and Cham, as well as Damian 'Jr Gong' Marley, who produced most of Marshall's new album.

Hailed by the Associated Press as "a refreshing curve to the dancehall game," Tru Colors is Marshall's first album in more than a decade.

The 13-track collection, released on the Marley-owned label, Ghetto Youths International,

and distributed through Thirty Tigers/Sony RED, was written almost entirely by Marshall.

Tessanne Chin, NBC's The Voice winner, also contributes lyrics on the album's closing track, On The End. The album features an all-star cast of collaborations, including Ace Hood, Cham & Waka Flocka on Go Harder; Aidonia, Assassin, I-Octane, Jr. Gong, Bounty Killer & Vybz Kartel on Go Hard; Assassin on Stupid Money; Bounty Killer on Be On The Alert; Tarrus Riley on Nah Give Up and Capleton on Strike Dem.

The album follows his 2013 digital-only EP, Tru Colors, (Ghetto Youths International) and his 2003 LP, Marshall Law (VP Records).
