Freezy used COVID downtime to release Dennery Segment album
He blessed us with hit songs such as ‘Split in de middle’ and ‘Back it up’ and now Johnnick Leo, popularly known as Freezy, has released the first-ever Dennery Segment album entitled ‘Test your waistline’.
It was revealed in grand style on September 30, where Freezy threw a post-birthday event at Ultra Lounge to debut his most anticipated project for 2020.
The album is a compilation of eighteen heart pumping, waist rolling tunes featuring various artists from St Lucia and the Caribbean. Most of his previously debuted smashing hits are part of the album in addition to some new collaborations made this year.
Freezy’s love for music started in school when he recorded songs for fun. It wasn’t until 2012 that he turned his past time into a profession, releasing his first popular song ‘Koupe’ featuring Shallo in 2014, which was played at every party in St Lucia.
In 2016, he released ‘Split in de middle’ which at first didn’t get much traction, but went viral a year later, making it one of Freezy’s biggest hit to date and securing his spot as one of St Lucia’s most popular Dennery Segment artists. The song has had over 16 million views on YouTube since its release and has allowed Freezy the opportunity to represent St Lucia on a global scale.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic has crippled his major form of income, the young artist has welcomed all the positive blessings that he has experienced nonetheless.
“The album project was something that I always wanted to do but I was touring heavily. Because of corona, I got an opportunity to be home where I’m comfortable recording and I started working on it and I made it happen.”
According to Freezy, the pandemic has taught him how to better himself as an artist in the digital world and how to make an income using all the digital platforms available for artists.
“The album is already doing well internationally,” he said.
‘Test your waistline’ is available on all digital platforms including iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, D'Music, Tidal and can be streamed via https://riddimstream.it/testyuhwaistline.
Freezy shared advice saying,“Believe in yourself and keep on working to the best of your ability. The opportunities will present itself, choose the right opportunities. Work on your craft and as long as you believe in yourself and you stay humble everything will fall in place. Always educate yourself and keep on learning how to better yourself.”
Freezy’s upcoming project will be the remix of ‘In a hole’ featuring Ricky T and the release date for the audio and video is set for December 1, 2020.
