"Plans are far advanced to shoot a video for the project, me and Mavado always have a great chemistry in the studio, so I am not surprised at the great feedback on the international markets, especially on radio on South Florida," super-producer Justus Arison, chief executive officer of JA Productions, said. 


The single is generating a big buzz on the radio getting multiple spins on IRIE, ZIP, Suncity and HITZ. The single will hit iTunes in August. Since its release on youtube, the song has racked up over 500,000 views across a number of online platforms.

JA Productions is no stranger to international success as the label's previous rhythm project, 'Life Support', picked up a high profile sync placement on the popular US reality TV series, 'Bad Girls Club' . The placement was for a hip hop remix of 'Let Dem Een' by Gyptian, was featured in the 14th episode of the current season which aired on September 29th, 2015.


Arison also scored a placement when the instrumental of another rhythm project, High Life, was featured on 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians', which is aired on the E! Network and viewed by millions.
