Produced by Justus Arison, Dancehall Prophecy is currently climbing on the iTunes reggae charts.
Not known for doing many interviews or for expressing himself on social media, Mavado takes it to the studio and shares his thoughts in this single. The single starts with a grimy sound that grabs your attention. When the song begins, one would be tempted to put a ‘gun finger’ in the air, but as it progresses, Mavado’s melodies come in to balance the grittiness of the track, giving persons the ability to sing along.
“Dancehall Prophecy is reality. That’s what this single is about, and that is why so many people are able to relate. More time, you do you best, give you all, and people still never satisfied. But the worst thing is when dem try stop you. We cyaan mek dem win,” Mavado said.
Throughout the single, Mavado mentions the numerous ‘fights’ he continues to receive in dancehall despite all the success and international exposure he has had in his extensive career. Yet, as a dancehall prodigy, he is aware that his music will live on no matter what happens.
He explained that his most recent obstacle is the fight for the freedom of his son, who is currently incarcerated on a murder charge. Mavado mentions that he wishes that his son could understand how wicked mankind can be.
