Dancehall artiste CJ Killawno plans to dominate the local airwaves with a barrage of new singles this summer.

"I have a bag of new tracks to drop for the summer. I have to keep current. I can't afford to be left out of the mix. Summer time is a special time in the music biz and I want to make sure the people hear a lot of new tracks from me right through the summer."

The hard working deejay recently released a brand new single called Sando, which is a take off of Slick Rick's 1988 Hip Hop hit, Hey Young World.

"Sando is a true story about a youth I knew when I was growing up. He got caught up in the struggles of life and eventually got killed. I needed a good beat for the song and I remembered Hey Young World. it's a song I used to sing a lot back in the days, so I sampled the hook and the beat and recorded my track."

Sando is available on ITunes and all other popular Internet music stores.

CJ is also promoting a single he recorded with 2014 'Magnum Kings and Queens' finalist, The Hydal, called Warnin, on the Full A Hate rhythm. The hard hitting dancehall single which is a joint venture production between his Moisade Production label and Lyrical War Records out of Austria, is currently one of the hottest songs in the streets of Montego Bay.

"This track is burning up the streets. it's hot all over Mobay from Flankers to Gully. It's getting crazy love in the streets; everyone wants it for their ring tone."

CJ Killawno is currently in the studios putting the finishing touches on his upcoming party track, Slap Weh Party.

"This a straight up party track. I'm just showing my versatility. Sando is a reality track, Warnin is for the rude boys and Slap Weh Party is for the girls. Its summer time and I'm giving everybody something musically," he said.

The music video for his single Wine For Me, is enjoying heavy rotation on a number of local TV stations including HYPE TV and CVM Plus.
