Fast-rising singjay TIAN “HAADRIVE” HARRIS says he has his sight set on making a major musical impact in 2022. The self-styled Dancehall/Reggae artiste says he has a cluster of unreleased music to go with a slew of new singles he recently released and as such plans to flood the market with his exceptional content. The artiste recently inked a management deal with United Kingdom-based PCP Entertainment which he says will pull out all stops to ensure he gets the required resources and marketing support needed to secure his musical breakthrough.
“An artiste without a team in these times is like a bird without wings as such I know I am very fortunate to be apart of the PCP Family and I feel very confident that Pretty Capone will provide me with the best options needed at this time. I have been doing my part by remaining focused and putting in the required groundwork and content creation so I am very very excited about my prospects this year” Stated Haadrive.
HAADRIVE was born in Clarendon. He developed an early interest in music while attending Hayes Primary and Junior High and as a child and youth; he never missed an opportunity to share his musical talent at school concerts and community events. HAADRIVE later moved to Kingston, where he attended Holy Trinity High School and as a young man he continued to showcase his vocal skill at school concerts and local events.
HAADRIVE continued to develop as an entertainer after leaving high school. He became friends with UT RAS (An Reggae artist) who would “hook him up” with promoters. This helped HAADRIVE get performance exposure at shows that were staged by these promoters. HAADRIVE has made songs on popular riddims and also on original tracks while at various studios in Kingston. He soon recorded at UIM Records with Grammy award-winning billboard producer ANJU BLAXXX.
Songs such as “Tic Toc” on the ‘Like Me’ Riddim which was released in 2008 propelled HAADRIVE. His music picked up momentum with more radio airplay with the hit “Body Good” on the ‘Fitz Riddim’. “Back It Up” on the Sanction Riddim which was released by UIM in 2010 gained a whole lot more attention.
HAADRIVE displayed his vocal prowess on UIM Studio’s “Black Skin” which was recorded with international recording stars: GYPTIAN and BLACK DIAMOND. In 2012, HAADRIVE recorded “Honest Bread” with Magician Records on the ‘Off balance riddim” which gave him further recognition.
HAADRIVE recorded many popular dancehall tracks as well while at TuffChin Records, including “Gallis” ft Third World Don (formerly Mike Beatz), 4X4, Lazee, “Lose Control” ft Sherylee “Little N Cute”, “D System”, “Addi Innocent”. HAADRIVE went on to record many tracks at Izrael Records in 2015.
