Charly Black to perform on the Wendy Williams' show
Recording artiste Charly Black is set to perform on the controversial Wendy Williams Show on Thursday June 8.
The selector-turned-deejay climbed the Billboard charts with his single Gyal You A Party Animal last year, and has since teamed up with veteran manager Julian Jones-Griffith to handle his now international brand.
According to Jones-Griffith, Wendy is a big fan of Charly Black.
"Wendy and her whole team are big fans. They reached out to me to have Charly perform Party Animal live on the show. They have also booked Charly to perform alongside Fat Joe, Remy Ma and a bunch of other artistes at a big event she's keeping at the Ford Amphitheater in Coney Island, Brooklyn on July 23," he said.
Charly Black is also booked to perform at Hot 97's Summer Jam concert alongside Chris Brown, DJ Khaled and Migos among others.
He told THE WEEKEND STAR that he is excited to be representing the island.
"I'm just continuing to put in the hard work and glad to know that more and more people are recognising and requesting me. It's going to be an honour to represent my country and dancehall music to a wider audience, and to God be the glory," he said,
The Wendy Williams Show is a syndicated daytime talk show which airs in multiple markets. It can also be streamed on 'www.wendyshow.com'. The show is featured in over 50 countries on BET internationally.
Charly Black has also been getting loads of attention with the recent Dom Da Bomb remix of 'Despacito' which features Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber.
He has a number of international collaborations in the pipeline and is working on his album which will be released later this year.
Former Minister of State, Ministry of Tourism and Entertainment, Damion Crawford says Charly Black's feature on the show is good for Jamaican music.
"People will not consume what they are not conscious about or aware of. Back in the days, we got a lot of PR because the music reflected social situations which affected society but that is no longer so. Therefore platforms like these are good for the music and might lead to an increase in sales. It might also get us back into mainstream radio during mainstream time," he said.
Entertainment consultant Jerome Hamilton said the occasion is good for Charly Black as an individual, however he was unsure if it would do anything for dancehall as a genre.
