“It’s always great collaborating with my musical peers. With Jada and Skeng, we have a past history of doing music. Me and Popcaan have been friends from the first time that I met music. Mavado is always a general who has been inspiring me since I was growing up so to make music with him was a pleasure,” Govana said in an interview with Observer Online during the launch event.

“It was easy and interesting at the same time, to blend everything. It was challenging but easy because they’re good musicians,” he continued.

“I’ve grown as a better human being, I’ve grown tremendously. Every day you learn something more and I will never stop learning. Every time that I release music, I always try to evolve from what I’ve done before. It don’t make sense you keep on repeating yourself all over,” Govana said.

Over the past few years, the music has changed significantly. Govana says he is supportive of the new generation of dancehall acts.

“I think the music goes with the times, so the youths dem, it goes by generations. You know the hip and the hop ting are the top things that will be at the forefront. The yutes dem a stream the music and a dem a run wid the hype. There’s still good music going on out there, but what’s in the spotlight now, is the yutes expressing themselves,” Govana reasoned
