Rickey Teetz looks to expand reach in 2018
Dancehall artiste Rickey Teetz is looking to amp up promotion on his latest single Dolla, a song aimed at inspiring Jamaicans wrestling with inflation and low wages.
Released on the Show Di Vibes label last December, the artiste plans to shoot a video for the project later this month.
"The early feedback has been excellent. people like the theme of being successful and making money in 2018, despite our background or economic situation," he said. "The song has popped up on several street mixtapes such as DJ Dotcom and DJ Don Kingston, so that is a great sign so far. that's why I am pushing ahead to shoot the video this month."
Last year, Rickey Teetz performed on a slew of events including Jerk Fest in St James. In 2018, he is seeking to expand his sphere of influence by performing on more shows outside of his native St James.
"I have a really great following in MoBay, St James, but I have never performed in Portland or St Thomas. I want to broaden my reach into other areas of Jamaica, especially the eastern and central parishes, so I am going to push the envelope in 2018," he said.
He is next booked for a show called Full Force in Falmouth, Trelawny, on Saturday.
Teetz emerged as one of the promising dancehall prospects in 2017. One of his singles, Tip Yuh, generated more than a million hits on YouTube, and led to a booking and performance in Trinidad and Tobago during the summer.
