Saab - Contributed

London-based dancehall artiste Saab, is very upbeat about his future in music after recently shooting a music video for his hit single Jamaica A Di Place.

The song was produced by his label, Modern Times, while the video was directed by Rohan Harris' Mcdov Productions.

There's another music video in rotation on CVM PLUS for his single Blackberry Girl, which was released in February and directed by Wayne South.

And while he continues to gain notoriety from the materials aforementioned, Saab, real name Karl Wallace, is already gearing up to release some new items such as Gal A Fi Yuh Man and an unnamed track with former Magnum King of Dancehall winner Poor and Boasy.

"A lot of people are talking about Jamaica A Di Place, because the song is a catchy one and the video compliments it very well," said Saab, formerly known as Hippy Ranking or Lappa.

The song, according to Saab, is the launching pad of a major comeback in music mainstream after a very successful period during the late 1980s and early '90s.

Back in the day, Saab, who hails from Montego Bay, St James, was a popular figure who had made a name for himself with the releases of Condom, Whey Yuh Body Gone, and Love Money Man.

But, in 2003, Saab returned to the island with the intention of relaunching his career with Million Buck, which was done for his label. That song boasted a video, which got heavy rotations on several stations across Jamaica. Other tracks such as Baby Mother Drama, Bad Man Nuh WatchShibby, and Dutty Gyal were released during that corresponding period.
