Concrossis focusing on hard work | Entertainment
New York-based dancehall artiste Concrossis is gearing up to aggressively promote his latest single, Work Hard, which was released earlier this month.
“The song was actually inspired by a true story, and by doing a song, this allows me to preserve my memory of what I learned from that experience. The response has been phenomenal so far. We’re getting airplay on reggae stations in theTri-State Area, Philadelphia, and even Florida. Based on the positive, early feedback, I went ahead and shot visuals for the song,” Concrossis said.
The COVID-19 pandemic has fully shuttered operations for live music events, leaving venues empty, and furloughed millions of staff worldwide. Concrossis believes that the best way for things to return to some level of normality is to support the vaccination effort so the world can resume its road to recovery.
“These vaccines are our best chance at putting COVID-19 behind us. The entire live-event industry has stood still since March 2020, but the music must go on. People still play music at home, music is still being streamed. We have to just work hard to get this back to where it was pre-COVID,” he said.
The deejay was forced to cancel several shows in countries like Belize and Costa Rica. He has no idea when these overseas gigs will return.
“We have to just go on with our lives as best as possible. COVID-19 will be with us for a while,” he said.
Concrossis, who now lives in the USA, grew up between Portsmouth in Portmore, St Catherine, and Bucknor in May Pen, Clarendon. He plans to release a nine-song EP called Progress.
