Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG NEW YORK, NY -- Madhouse/Atlantic recording artist Cham has unveiled details of his eagerly awaited new album, "GHETTO STORY." The Kingston, Jamaica native's Atlantic debut hits stores nationwide August 15th.

Produced by Dave Kelly, "GHETTO STORY" is the follow-up to Cham's debut album, "WOW... THE STORY," released on Madhouse Records in 2000. Cham's 2003 released buzz track, "Vitamin S," was the reggae star's first Billboard-charting single. Cham, one of the world's greatest and most successful dancehall DJs, has been hailed a true superstar, a cutting-edge talent known around the world for his imaginative wordplay, creative sounds, and up-to-the-minute news reports of modern ghetto life.

The title track from "GHETTO STORY," featuring Alicia Keys, saw a 33 percent rebound this week as it jumped back into Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and bulleted to #22 in the Billboard Rap chart. "Ghetto Story" is also one of the top 5 researched records at both POWER 105 and HOT 97 radio stations in New York.

The music video for "Ghetto Story," also featuring Keys, began official rotation last week on MTV and BET. Cham's "Makes the Video" as well as an appearance on "Sucker Free Countdown" will air on MTV2 August 20th. He has also been named a "Discover and Download" artist on MTV and MTV2, and "Ghetto Story" is featured on "The Leak" on MTV2 and MTV Jams. Just last week, "Ghetto Story" aired as a New Joint on BET's "106 & Park."
