'Bruk Foreigner' eyed as next Kalado hit
Dancehall artiste Kalado has released another unique track that has been taking over the dancehall space in recent weeks.
The single, Bruk Foreigner, is the first single released on Kalado's own label K.O. G. (Knock Out Gang) on a beat made by Richie Loop and mixed by engineer Red Boom.
Kalado said a number of persons might find the song disrespectful, but clarified it was in no way meant to disrespect visitors to the island.
"The song is making reference to those individuals who pretend to be wealthy and, in reality, are suffering and depend on us Jamaicans to finance them when they are here. When they return home they are faced with extreme poverty and are surviving on welfare and have spent all their savings or tax returns," Kalado explained.
The artiste sees the Bruk Foreigner track as harsh reality, reminiscent of songs like Deportee by Buju Banton.
He urges Jamaicans, especially those living abroad to heed the warning - don't hype when you visit Jamaica, especially when you know when you return abroad you are suffering and in debt.
So far, the Bruk Foreigner single has been making its rounds locally and overseas and has fans of the DJ touting it as the next big hit for Kalado.
It would be a welcome positive for Kalado after many negatives over the last three years.
This year, Kalado also plans to dabble into the authentic reggae one-drop, live-band beats on soon-to-be released singles.
He is also promoting additional releases, including brand new singles Fresh To The Bone, Ghetto Pledge and the 'hot girl's anthem' Bounce.
