Dancehall sensation Patoranking is putting finishing touches to his highly anticipated second studio album ‘Wilmer’.
The Amari Musiq boss some weeks ago revealed the name of his forthcoming studio album. However, recently the singer added more background to the title of his album.
Patoranking’s sophomore album is named after his daughter by name Wilmer. The ‘Confirm’ crooner unveiled the album cover art which had his beautiful daughter on the cover.
The body of work is dedicated to his daughter as he wrote a poem in her honour.
More details from Patoranking showed that the album would be out 25th May, 2019. An official album tracklisting should follow soon.
