Rising dancehall artiste Maestro Don gets personal on his latest single titled 'Grateful'.

The song, produced by Kevy B of KevStar Records, is a real life experience that Maestro Don is confident persons can relate to.

"The inspiration behind the song is actually a real-life experience in which a friend and I had differences within an organisation and went separate ways. The split caused animosity and words were thrown my way via media trying to defame my character, and the word 'ungrateful' was the headline. So instead of doing social media post and taking it physical, I did what I know to do best, which is music. So I put all my emotions and experience in words on a track and created the song," Maestro Don explained.

To further enhance the song's promotion, a music video, directed by Robin Chin of Enhanced Realizm, was recently released.

The Portmore-based artiste is coming off a musical high after his standout performance at Sting 2016. Since then he has done shows including Portmore Jamboree and Portmore Spring Break. On July 1, he is booked to perform at Dancehall vs Soca in New York.

Born Jason Dunn, the 23-year-old deejay made his recording debut with the song Cya Buy Me Out. The song was produced by Rat Bat.

Dubbed the 'Young Don', he described his musical journey as a lesson and joy.

"I believe that I have the new sound and the new image and attitude that can represent fi dancehall music to the fullest, and mi ah go all out fi mek it happen," he said.

Maestro Don recently signed with the New York-based Massive Entertainment.
