Wasp wants to sting with 'Hard At Dem'
Dancehall artiste Wasp has released a new track set to heat up the streets and airwaves this festive season.
The single, Hard at Dem, on noted producer Notnice's 'Wicked Up' rhythm, talks about overcoming adversities and proving the naysayers wrong while staying true to who you are unapologetically.
"I feel like at this point in my career, I have to give my 150 per cent. I feel like I'm in the top five set of lyricists in Jamaica. When people talk about the top artistes, I want to be a part of that conversation. I'm putting in the work right now," Wasp said, noting that the song will be available for purchase on digital platforms later this month.
Hard at Dem is a follow-up to Wasp's Haters single also produced by Notnice on the Ova Dweet rhythm.
"I have found myself in direct contact with haters a lot of times. Evil people are around in abundance, especially in music. Sometimes you have to shake the hand of some, knowing they are 100 per cent fake. My reality inspires my material all the time, and this is why the fans can relate to my music," Wasp added.
Meanwhile, Hard at Dem comes as part of a recording contract that Wasp has signed with Notnice Records, which will see him also working on an EP, as well as a full-length album. However, he isn't rushing the process.
"The buzz worldwide is necessary for a few singles before an album or EP will be released. Right now, we have ample material to release a few albums, but we want a few number-one singles trending worldwide first before we release a full project. Our focus is on these new singles right now," Wasp said.
Wasp is also busy promoting the AWahsuh clothing line that he is currently the face of. He will be performing on the SunCity Campus Invasion and the Mello FM's Road Show in the coming weeks.
Additionally, his birthday party, Tek Weh Bwoy Gyal, is set for December 16 in his hometown of Cassia Park, St Andrew.
