In 2013, Kalado became a formidable force in the dancehall music industry as he became a radio staple for the general public with the singles Make me Feel, Good Good Bring Life, and Body Nuh Dead. These songs became immensely popular, accumulating millions of views on YouTube, topped charts and led to several media outlets to position Kalado as dancehall’s next elite member. A testament to this was the overwhelming crowd response that Kalado received for his performance at the Youth View Awards in February 2014.
For 2014, Kalado has already seen success with the release of his Pree Money and Gyal/Pay Dem Nuh Mind medley video. The medly video has reached the number one spot on CVM’s Hitlist, and is currently still charting within the top five tier of TVJ’s Entertainment Report. The video has also been an internet favourite on industry-leading blogs and websites.
To further cement his mark, Kalado is working on his debut extended play, slated for completition later year. Until the project’s release, listeners can look out for his singles Jealously In The Air, Yardcore Sex, Out In Time, and Turn It Dah Way Yeh. Another single, the afrobeat-tinged Personally, will be receiving a visual treatment for release in April due to immense fan demand.
In addition to singles, listeners can look out for an electronic dance music remix of Make Me Feel, and Kalado performances in the Caribbean, Canada, UK, and wider Europe this year.
