Solo‘, a combination single featuring dancehall artistes Binelly and Chronic Law, is generating much interest in the streets locally.
“The song was blasted out this week and my phone has just been blowing up since that. People are loving the lyrics and delivery. Big respect to the Law Boss and Damage Music for this collaboration,” Binelly, whose real name is Martico Gardener, said.
The single, which was released on the Damage Music label, is already racked up loads of views.
The response has fast-tracked plans to shoot visuals for the project.
Binelly grew up in a small community called Scarlett Hall in Trelawny, and attended Spot Valley High in St James. At school, he used to engage in lyrical battles at recess time, and quickly earned a reputation for quick-witted rhymes and confident lyrics.
“In the lyrical battles, and there can only be one winner, anything else comes after, and yuh nah fi ask who it was. The way mi deliver the lyrics them and the way them a fire hard, a friend once described me as a Benelli shot gun. I took it into consideration for weeks it was almost a month before I decided that okay, it’s Binelly,” he explained.
Three years ago, he recorded his first single dubbed ‘Put Pressure’, a conscious song about working hard and believing in yourself, on a beat he downloaded from the internet.
He continued to fine-tune his craft before he teamed up with well-known producer, Damage Music.
Binelly has earned many female fans with the ‘ear-gasmic’ single, ‘Ride’, which was released with visuals a few weeks ago.
“Both ‘Ride’ and ‘Solo’ are produced by Damage Music and they are definitely creating a buzz in the streets and keep growing as time goes by,” said the artiste.
He shot visuals for the song, ‘FFN’, in Portmore last week.
Binelly hails from a music family as his mother once performed under the stage name, ‘Mystery’, years ago.
“Back then, her songs motivated me, as well as her struggles she had back then while trying to pursue her dreams in the industry,” he said.
