Dancehall artiste Maestro Don is heating up the streets with a collaboration with Bounty Killer called Pioneer, a power move that signals his intention to carve out a bigger slice of dancehall in 2020.
“The collaboration was a natural, magical vibe. Quite some time now, I’ve been in the studio around Bounty Killer, but it wasn’t until that specific night when everything connect. Is like nothing couldn’t go wrong. The riddim was playing and everybody a hold a vibe, and the end product was this collaboration,” Maestro Don said.
The song, produced by Jj Wizzle and Rico Tayla on the YardStyle Entertainment label, was released on May 28.
“I grew up listening to Bounty Killer and watching his stage show performances and emulating his styles as a teen. Fast-forward to now. So to be able to record a song and work with the general is a feeling of growth, progress and gratitude. He is also a great mentor, enuh. He has a lot of experience and advice to share,” Maestro Don said.
He believes that this single could generate the mainstream attention to propel his career to the next level, especially with the release of a video for the project.
“We’re getting tremendous feedback from radio stations locally and overseas who are playing the song every day. The video is doing well on Tidal and Apple Music, and my Vevo, racking up over 64,000 views in only one week. I’m looking out for BET and MTV next,” he said.
Maestro Don is currently working on an EP called Diary Of A Young Don, which is exclusively produced by Konsequence Music.
“This project will give my listeners a different insight on Maestro Don. it’s like Maestro wid a difference, a message that can resonate with many people,” he said.
