AfroDancehall Artist Heph B started off 2023 on good note as he unleashed the highly anticipated deluxe version of his “AMARII” album. The follow up to the 2021 original was in promotion since the early part of 2022 thanks to the singles “Big Boy”, the “Big Boy (Remix)” featuring Dancehall Artists Bugle and Laa Lee, and “Figure 8”. “AMARII (Deluxe)” was released on January 6, and it has already seen success.
“AMARII (Deluxe)” quickly secured a high placement on the day of its release, debuting at #8 on the iTunes World Albums chart in the US, compared to the #14 position from the original album. On Friday January 14, both the explicit and clean versions of the album climbed to the 1st and 2nd spots on iTunes World Albums chart respectively, showing that when the determination and love for the music are seen by the people, the support will come. [UPDATE: As of February 14, the album has charted at #1 for 4 weeks straight.] The album currently shares the top 5 placement with Burna Boy’s “Love, Damini” album, “Drif” by Heilung, and “Ali” by Vieux Farka Touré & Khruangbin.
Heph B is currently finalizing content in support of “AMARII (Deluxe)” that will be released in the coming days. He recently visited South Africa, and connected with some of the major players in the music scene there. “Haibo (Big Spender)”, a single off the new album, has been making its rounds, and is expected to be the next official release.
Heph B’s “AMARII (Deluxe)” is out now on all digital music streaming platforms through DAE Records. To stay up to date with Heph B, follow him on Instagram at @King_HephB, and visit HephBMusic.com.
