Montego Bay-based artiste Unknown Gringo has landed a big collaboration, Get to the Money, with reggae-dancehall star Jahmiel.
“I contacted him via IG because I have always been a big admirer of his musical style, and he sent me his number, then we started talking about the possibility of a song. I sent him the riddim, he loved it,” said Unknown Gringo. “He did his part and I constructed my part in the studio live when we linked up at Big Ship, and the energy was right. Jahmiel is a clean-hearted youth and he went out of his way to help me, and showed me certain things in the game, so I am very excited about this song.”
Get to the Money will be officially released in two weeks on the Desconocido Music label via all major online download platforms.
Well-known music producer Emanuel ‘German’ Schirmer is going to mix the project.
“We plan to do a video for the song real soon, and we are finalising everything right now. We are going to shoot the video and drop the song at the same time to create maximum impact,” Unknown Gringo said.
Jahmiel is known for the singles Strongest Soldier, U Me Luv, and Gain the World.
In the meantime, Unknown Gringo, who made his Reggae Sumfest debut last year, has landed an endorsement as a JB ambassador, and is booked to appear at a number of shows in western Jamaica.
“Right now, mi lock MoBay; every school pickney ah sing mi song. Money Factory just a get hot; Bingo just a get hot; mi song de pon every mixtape, so 2020 looks very promising,” he said.
