Vybz Kartel fans are begging the incarcerated deejay to release more new music.
It’s been two months since Vybz Kartel released a new single and Gaza fans are hungry for more new music already. Over the last few years, the Worl’Boss was releasing one and sometimes two or three new singles every week, but these days fans are getting new music at most one or two every other month. His fans are now feeling like the slow supply of new music is diminishing his presence while his rivals like Alkaline and Mavado are dominating the genre.
“When we going to get some new music from Worl’Boss?” one Gaza fan asked on IG. Dancehall HipHop reached out to our sources inside the Gaza camp who told us that the incarcerated deejay is retaining more control over his music and that is why we are seeing a slow down of releases. “Addi (Vybz Kartel) now has more control over his unreleased catalog so the entire team vet carefully whats release and what don’t,” sources said. “A lot of the new music that was released are from producers that Addi voiced for so we don’t have much control over when those producers choose to release those music. But going forward it’s quality over quantity.”
Despite the slow release from Vybz Kartel, the incarcerated deejay scored his second Billboard hit single with “Fever” climbing the charts and a few other singles in heavy rotation. Vybz Kartel has also been releasing a number of collaborative singles like “Loodi” with Shenseea and “Chance” with Sean Kingston.
The last song Vybz Kartel released was “Eagle” on June 10th, but a rep for the Gaza told DHH that new music is coming soon.
