Dancehall artiste Tygah De Alpha is generating heat in the streets with the risque Never Before single.
“The feedback has been great, to the point where most people even believed that the vocals were actually those of a well-known artiste, so I view that as a compliment,” the artiste whose real name is Javion Alensie Brown, said.
The provocative nature of the song coupled with Tygah De Alpha’s sparkling vocals generated 418,000 plus views on the video for the single, giving him his first bonafide hit.
The artiste grew up in Trinityville in western St. Thomas. He discovered his love for music during his teens when he attended the St. Thomas Tech High, Cedric Titus and Robert Lightbourne High schools. He got involved in music at the St. Thomas Technical high school with a music group called Stashment Crew.
After a few months, the group broke up and he went solo, christening himself Tygah De Alpha.
“The name Tygah De Alpha is a combination of names with important meanings. Tygah is my nickname at a tender age while the name De Alpha shows dominance and autocratic leadership as an individual/entertainer,” he said.
He released his first official song called Downtown Kingston which did not get proper promotion. Unfazed, he continued to work on his craft before teaming up with Sha-Tess Records.
Tygah De Alpha has been locked in the studio, conceptualising songs for edgy dancehall beats, for an EP. One of those songs is his follow up release, Duffle Bag, which will be released by Sha-Tess Records.
“I have every intention to do an EP in 2024, it’s all in the making, mi just a gwaan put in the work,” he said.
