Reggae Dancehall artiste Jason Dunn popularly known as Maestro Don (The Young Don) from Portmore, St. Catherine is celebrating another milestone after two of his singles, Pioneer featuring Bounty Killer, and Senorita began generating momentum internationally on BET.
‘Pioneer’, a song which was produced by Yardstyle Entertainment and features the dancehall legend, Bounty Killer, was released a year ago. The song is now getting international recognition after being selected on BET Soul & BET Jamz in August of 2021.
“It’s an overwhelming feeling to even have done a collaboration with the veteran Bounty Killer, yet alone a music video that has been selected to be on BET Jamz & “BET Soul”. from ever since I’ve always watched BET trying to emulate all the rap stars wishing it was me,” said Maestro.
The producer said the reason he chose Maestro Don & Bounty Killer for this track was because Maestro had that new sound. He added that Maestro’s distinct sound, plus Bounty Killer’s unique and commanding sound gave the track an authentic dancehall stamp of approval.
“The plans to promote the song are in place. BET has kick started the overseas leg of the promotion. We are aiming for a wider, more international audience because dancehall is worldwide and Bounty is a living icon,” said producer JJ Wizzle.
Maestro’s break on the international scene got another boost when “Senorita”, a project done with Singjay D’ Yani was selected for a remix with the talented Trinidad singer Nailah Blackman. The video for the remix was shot in the United States.
Maestro has been satisfied with those developments and as such is currently promoting a new single called “Active Mode” produced by Jahclo productions & Ricky Blaze from New York.
“This track, ”Active”, was inspired by my surroundings and the feeling I had at the moment of recording. I wanted to record a song that would empower people where confidence is concerned and for people to get in a“Active” / fun vibe anytime the song is played,” he revealed.
“The difference about this track is that it stands out with a more uptempo vibe than my previous singles which my listeners are more familiar with. This track is more of a “Mood”. I hope for people to truly enjoy themselves and display confidence whenever the beat drops,” Maestro said.
