Richie Spice's 'In the Streets to Africa ' VP Records/Fifth Element Records album is climbing the Billboard Reggae chart, peaking at number six after three weeks. The single 'Brown Skin', taken from the album, is sitting inside the top ten of the BBC1Xtra Dancehall charts in the UK and number one on the Hype TV and RE TV charts in Jamaica.
The Fifth Element recording artiste just completed a tour to promote the album which was released in February and getting rave reviews. The March 2007 issue of playboy Magazine gave it four stars, saying,...... 'Spice offers an exception to the slackness and hyperactivity of dancehall. One of the best roots release in years.'
The title of the album highlights the struggles as well as the business options that are available within the Africa continent. Spice, who is now in Jamaica for a series of events, plans to tour Africa for the first time in 2007.
