  Dancehall recording artiste Delly Ranx is in Jamaica promoting his latest album, The Next Chapter.
"The response has been phenomenal so far, the sales have been great, especially in Europe. The disc jockeys have been very supportive, Big A, Roderick Howell, Elise Kelly, Dalton Leith from Hitz, Troy, Garfield, Liquid, everybody ah show mi love, and the general public say they love the video on social networks like Twitter and Facebook," Delly Ranx said in a release.
He has also shot a video for the single, One Away Soldier featuring the rapper Charlie2Na of Jurassic5.
"It's a great video, people are going to love this video, it's going to launch on Jamaican television this week, and coincide with an aggressive street campaign that we are kicking off with the selectors," he said. 
He joined a growing list of new generation dancehall artistes such as Mr.Vegas, Lady Saw and Busy Signal who have decided to do reggae albums given the stasis in contemporary dancehall right now.
The artiste, who has already released three other albums, believes that reggae has a currency and appeal that is timeless, and allows him to bridge that generational gap between the young listeners who love all genres of music and ageing dancehall lovers seeking different musical palettes.
"It was worthwhile for me to release a reggae album to bridge the gap between the younger folks and the elders so that people can appreciate reggae again," Delly Ranx said.
Delly Ranx has been working on the album for the last three years and will release it under his Pure Music Productions label. The Next Chapter is a beautiful full-length studio album, will be released this month, and it’s a charming example of deeply mature songwriting and is buffered with warm guitars, groovy basslines and keyboards. The album also features a charming mix of collaborations with veterans in the music business, as well as rookie artistes just carving out a name for themselves.
"I collaborated with Bunny Rugs from Third World on a song called Life After Lifetime. I also have a collab with Buju Banton called Thunder Roll. My youngest daughter Gabrielle Foster also collaborated with me on a song called Baby Cry and I did the One a Way Soldier (remix) with an artiste called Charlie2na," Delly Ranx said.
Other dancehall artistes who have changed the thrust of their music from hardcore dancehall to reggae include Mr. Vegas, Cobra, Busy Signal and of course, the legends Capleton and Buju Banton. 
"The Next Chapter is available worldwide digitally, while fans who are interested in obtaining a hard copy of the album can log on to www.dellyranx.com to place orders," he said.
