Former Digicel Rising Stars contestant Delando Colley and Black Mattic have joined forces on the single, 'Better Place'.

Better Place speaks about uplifting oneself and others, despite the struggles which one goes through daily, the song encourages everyone to not give up.

After placing third in the Digicel Rising Stars Competition in 2011 at the age of 16, Colley sought to follow his dream as an artiste and further his passion by enrolling at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts.

Fast-forward to 2017, on the scene with a few singles, Better Place' seeks to reintroduce Colley to Jamaica and the world with his catchy hook.

"I'm gonna take myself to a better place, no matter how long it takes I will be fighting on the way..."

Black Mattic, known for hits such as Hero Dance, 3310 Rock and 2lb Sugar, has been working on his latest album, Press Play.

"This thing that we call the music industry is very tricky and it can be complicated at times. Other musicians and DJs will try and stop your progress if they recognise how great your potential is," he said, adding that he's experienced this firsthand. "I have no doubt Delando shares a similar struggle with his musical journey. I believe this fight spreads beyond music into all sectors. Despite this, they fail to understand that this propels us to work harder and smarter. Better Place will serve as a motivational song for our peers, as this was our intended message."
