Lockdown, released on July 17, 2020, also created history when it became the fastest track by a Jamaican Reggae artist to surpass one million views on YouTube in 48 hours. The video, directed by Yannick Reid, Habibi and Koffee, has amassed over 46 million views on YouTube with cameo appearances from the Unruly Boss Popcaan, Skillibeng, Dre Island, Dane Ray, and others.
The Toast singer responded with a simple, “Thank you” on Twitter.
