Chi Ching Ching released his debut album Turning Tables yesterday. The dancer-cum-deejay said the 21-track album has a global appeal and boasts a variety of mixes and collabs.

“It's an album to make the world happy and to feel Chi Ching Ching's vibes. It's the story of Chi Ching Ching. The album is prepared for everybody. It has all different types of songs on it and it's not just dance tunes; this album will show off who Chi Ching Ching really is,” he said.

Released on Sean Paul's Duttyrock Productions, Turning Tables has collabs with Sean Paul, Bounty Killer, and Fatman Scoop. Afrobeat stars Patoranking from Nigeria and Stonebwoy from Ghana also featured on the set. It is available on all digital platfroms through exclusive distribution partner, New York-based DubShot Records.

According to the deejay, the set chronicles his struggles and life story.

“It means that I am coming from nothing to something and I turn nothing into something,” said Ching. “At the end of the day, I have to give thanks for nothing because nothing gives me the opportunity and the drive to go on to something.”

Ching said the album was long overdue.

“From you are an artiste, you are going to make an album. Chi Ching Ching has been around a long time and I feel like it is time to take it to another level,” he added.

Chi Ching Ching, given name Radion Beckford, is from St Mary.

He got his musical break with the release of Lock Pon Di Ting in 2014. His subsequent releases include Breadfruit (Roast or Fry), Way Up Stay Up, Rope, One Knock , Rock Di World, and Crick Neck.
