Gambia: Gee's 'That Feeling' Album Slated for Pre-Launching Tonight

Rising Gambian sensation-Gibou Bala-Gaye alias Gee today October 5th 2012 at Alliance Franco (Gambienne), Kairaba Avenue, will pre-launch his fourth upcoming album titled 'That Feeling', a night he describes as giving his fans a taste of the upcoming album which is slated for launching December 22nd 2012. 'That Feeling' as the name goes, is believed to be Gee's fourth successful album and second in two years. His previous album 'Never Too Early' was released in December 2010.

During an interview with What's On, Gee revealed that the album 'That Feeling' consists of tracks that talk about emotions people go through on a daily basis, mainly about love, one thing everybody relates to. He described the album as an album that could represent Gambia and something that everyone relates to on a daily basis in love, such as disappointments, heartbreaks, being deeply in love, and more importantly how partners should deal with certain issues to maintain a relationship. He cited his new single 'Bul Falleh Nyee' ft. Jalimadi, as an example.

Bala Gaye further disclosed that the album is around 11 to 14 tracks, but tonight he will be performing only five tracks off the album backed by the Humanity Band. Some of this tracks includes the singles 'Bul Falleh Nyee' ft. Jalimadi and 'They All Asking', the two soundtracks that are making noise on radio stations right now. He further revealed that the producers on the album are Hakim (Sunland Music), Hanson (ShyBoy), Tara and Flexman, something he described as a good combination. Guest artists in the projects also include: Cyco, Badibunka, Awa Bling, ENC, MLC and of course NEW ERA, Gambia's hottest group right now.

He added: "If one followed my music, he/she could see the differences between my albums. This being my fourth one, I must say has way more mature tracks and being a hip-hop artist I chose to fused our culture (Mbalax) into this one in other to reach a different audience. At the same time experimenting on a new sound that Gambia can call ours."

On his final note, Gee reminded all Gambians that in order to make it as an artist in the outside world, people need to respect our artist and our music, so those beyond borders can respect them too. "Gambians have way more talent than most of these artists we bring down here and pay millions of CFAs or thousands of dollars to perform. Let's invest in us to change our industry and theirs he stressed, adding: "Come and support Gambian talent and I'm sure you will be convinced." Gee finally thanked fans and family, team GEE, saying that these are the people that kept him going till date.
