Just last year, gospel artiste Prodigal Son announced his decision to branch out into the reggae market. Now, the artiste is once again adding another branch, this time, his focus is on dancehall music.

The gospel artiste recently released his new dancehall single titled Hustler's Anthem and was quick to point out to THE WEEKEND STAR that he was simply using different genres as a means of expressing himself.

"My song, Head Caan Hot So, had elements of dancehall in it. To me, dancehall is just a genre, it's a part of my culture. I am dancehall and dancehall is me," Prodigal Son said.

Any backlash

Hustlers Anthem is slated for a weekend release, but Prodigal Son stated that he does not believe there will be any backlash from fans, Christians or the church.

"I am way more focused on the support I am getting from my real fans. Those are the people who are looking out for me. I am not focused on naysayers. I'm just going to continue to put out good music and focus on what I am doing," he said.

Describing the song as one that will appeal to all ages and groups who are focused on making a living by honest means, Prodigal Son stated that the dancehall track is sure to resonate well with not only individuals in inner-city areas, but will also appeal to the upper echelons of society.

When questioned as to whether he will be switching to dancehall full time, Prodigal Son refused to comment.

"The fans just need to keep them eyes open. I will be releasing more music and more videos soon. I am the voice of the people," he said.
