International hitmaker Kranium enters 2021 with the world’s added weight, as he pushes for universal reggae acclaim.

“Well, what’s a better medium to communicate that fact than with new music,” said Haitian American Marie Driven, the managing partner of the Brooklyn-based PlaybookMG, stating that Kranium’s new EP, “Toxic,” dropped on Feb. 12, via Atlantic records.

Driven told Caribbean Life that the project features several hit tracks recently released as singles that elaborate on “the epitome of modern dancehall with hints of pop for mainstream crossover.”

“Kranium wants listeners to know that he is not only a dancehall artist but a musician who can cross any fan group,” Driven said. “The songs’ successes are noteworthy, particularly given their popularity during a pandemic, with no club or house party to blast it.

“Every track gives fans a different perspective and view of love,” she said. “’Gal Policy’, in particular, quickly rose to the top of Billboard’s Top 10 Caribbean islands ranking and charted Top 20 in over 20 different islands on iTunes.”

Driven said “Through The Window” was the follow-up and is also on the new album, plus “Block Traffic,” featuring rising star Rytikal, “which has the islands going crazy.”

“He wants the world to know that he is claiming the throne of top tier musician of any genre for 2021,” Driven said.

“Toxic” is now available on all streaming platforms. Check out his new video “Won’t Judge.”
