Based on an arrangement with VP Records and Team Jamaica Bickle (TJB), the not-for-profit organisation that assists athletes who travel to Pennsylvania for the Penn Relays, every download of Romain Virgo's Still will see part proceeds going to assist athletes at the relay carnival this year.

"We are encouraging our listenership and our supporters to download the song. You are helping our athletes, you are helping our artiste federation, and by doing so, you are extending the power of the brand," said Irwin Claire, founder and CEO of TJB.

He said that Romain Virgo will be one of TJB's special ambassadors at the Penn Relays.

"We hope to have him there with us. It creates an opportunity for him because he will be exposed to the college campuses, and there are many Caribbean students at various campuses in the north, east. We hope that it becomes a win-win," Claire said.

"People like a Romaine Virgo embody the imagery that is important to carry forth the brand. He is a young man, and he produces the type of music that resonates well and sells well," he added.
