Mavado’s collaboration with UK rapper Chipmunk, Every Gyal, has quickly become the hottest dancehall record in the UK hands down, creating havoc in the dances across the UK. Every Gyal has now climbed to the top of the BBC 1XTRA Dancehall Chart, where it is expected to ride the summer wave to commercial success.
Both Mavado and Chipmunk called in to Robbo Ranx’s show live on BBC 1XTRA on Thursday night in a transatlantic link up to celebrate the song’s success.
Produced by Dready, Every Gyal is on Chipmunk’s sophomore album ‘Transition’ (Sony Records) that also featured Trey Songz, Keri Hilson and Chris Brown. Chipmunk has been a longtime fan of Mavado and said he didn’t want his album to come out without a feature with Mavado on it. Chipmunk actually did a freestyle on Mavado’s On The Rock back in 2008 that was an underground smash in the UK. The video for Every Gyal, shot in Ocho Rios earlier this year, has already got over two million views on YouTube.
Meanwhile, Mavado’s hot single Delilah continues to climb sales and airplay charts in the UK, Europe and US, with high expectations for the track to also garner crossover success. New singles Wine Gyal (DASECA Productions) and Mi Did Tell Yuh on Stephen McGregor’s ‘Bad Acid’ rhythm, look set to add to the Mavado frenzy gripping the world.
