Montego Bay-based artiste Unknown Gringo is celebrating a milestone in his career as he has racked up over one million streams on popular streaming platform Audiomack.
“The pandemic did slow me up a lot. I lost a lot of shows and now things just gwaan warm up again. So it is great to know that people are feeling my music and my streaming numbers are strong, and that I have achieved one millions streams on a major platform like Audiomack,” Unknown Gringo said.
The milestone coincides with the release of his new single, Area Code, which was released on the Desconocido Music label two weeks ago.
“I will be shooting the visuals for the song next week because the feedback has been so positive on social media,” he said.
He is booked to appear on a show called Stunt Madness on August 21 at the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium, alongside artistes like Shane E.
Unknown Gringo used to go by the name ‘No Face Unknown’, and wore a mask when he released the single, Tank Up. The deejay, who was raised in Flankers, made his Reggae Sumfest debut in 2019, a performance which he says earned him a new fan base and increased his following. He is not booked to appear this year.
“Next year, mi ah go ready fi dem, mi just ah go activate some new songs fi the new year,” he said.
He is putting the finishing touches on his The Return of the Unknown Gringo EP which he said will stray from his usual hardcore style.
