Having developed a passion to strengthen his international brand, Dancehall artiste Ricky Carty set out on a mission that seeks to foster his musical growth.
The artiste who has, over the years, gained much popularity through controversy has in recent times decided to use his creativity to change the nature of his music while still keeping his fans entertained.
“I feel music is an art that has no boundaries or rules, just creativity and as such I express myself very differently from others. My music is a safe haven for people who don’t judge and who can appreciate art in its many forms” He shared.
On October 1st Ricky’s debut compilation ‘Checkmate’ EP will be readily available for his fans.
Prior to release, the artiste released three songs from his EP, namely, ‘Press Pon Dem’, ‘Double Up’ and ‘Sauce’.
The EP comes to us as a collaborative project between Wizical Beats and Bvrban Beats and is set to be distributed by Splice Media Entertainment.
‘My fans were eager for this body of work and I had no choice but to give them something to bank on while I completed the EP. I decided to drop three songs, all of which are accompanied by visuals and so far the response has been tremendous. Two of the music videos have passed over 100k views on YouTube and it’s an amazing feeling to be experiencing this amount of genuine support” He said.
As a result of positive streaming numbers, Ricky Carty shares that “Press Pon Dem” charted at number 60 on the UK iTunes Top 100 Charts.
In a bid to build on his current momentum, the artiste will be launching at his official merchandise line in coming months.
