Dancehall artiste Javvy1 is blowing up all over the internet with his latest video, a grimy masterpiece of his latest single, Hero. Released seven days ago, the video has racked up 15,000 views so far.
“The song is inspired by my own upbringing in which I talk about how I was just a kid in my community to being someone who everyone looks up to someone who is a community leader that’s how the name hero came along. I know what it means to need a hero and to be a role model, young children need that even more today,” the artiste whose real name is Reneil Reid, said.
The single, Hero. will be released under the Chuckstar Production imprint in October.
Reid grew up in the Trinityville area of St. Thomas where he attended Happy Grove High and then Paul Bogle high schools. He was drawn to music at an early age.
“Music is a natural talent that I’ve had since I know myself. Been deejaying from school knocking desk for drum like most artiste did while growing up. Then I went around a producer Flydie Wise , began developing my skills and it’s been music from then,” he said.
He christened himself Javvy which was an abbreviation of his middle name and jumped headfirst into the music business.
“My little brother first called me Javvy because he knew I hate being called by my real name, so when I decided to do music, I used that name as my stage name,” he said.
Javvy1 recorded a number of songs but none were officially released over the years. His first official release was ‘Chill Time’ which was produced by Chuckstar Production and released in November 2021.
Javvy1 is now turning his attention towards his six-song EP dubbed ‘Hero’ which will be released in November 2022. Some of the songs from the EP include What If?, Pain, and the aforementioned ‘Hero’, all of which have been produced by Chuckstar Productions.
“My immediate future plans is to get my first hit single which I’m searching for tirelessly and from there we’ll just do greatness,” he said.
