Sol blazes a trail with 'Weatherman'
Dancehall artiste Sol believes that the 'weather has changed' for his career and there are sunny days ahead given the buzz around his latest single, 'Weatherman'.
"Right now, the settings a 'climate change'. things look brighter with mi career from the Weatherman song start do road. This song is the one that is getting the most buzz for me in the streets, and it has started to go mainstream as DJ Wayne and other radio deejays have started to give it a strength," Sol said.
The song has become a fixture on over 30 mixtapes, and it was used recently to great effect to kill a sound at a popular sound clash.
"My song was used at a SunCity radio event for school youths having a clash in the Limelight club parking. I did a dub for the youth, DJ Mercy, who won the clash overall, using my dub. he got a huge forward and mash up the place," Sol said.
Sol is the Spanish word for 'sun'. Sol, who was born in Kingston, attended St Jago High before migrating to Texas. He recorded his first single in 2010 and began to open up big shows for established acts like Serani and Gyptian. After moving to Virginia, his fan base continued to grow. However, he yearned to return to his roots, so he took a chance to come back to his native land to pursue music. Now that gamble has paid off with Weatherman.
"This song has the potential to be my first major hit," he said.
