DANCEHALL deejay Dejavu has been busy promoting his music in Europe. He recently returned to the island to throw some muscle behind his latest single Break up Sex, which features singer Raine Seville. It was produced by Truck Back Records.

"Almost everyone can relate to this track because almost everyone has had that person that they can't get over or find hard to leave. No matter how hard you try something keeps pulling you right back. It's definitely a reality song for real people," Dejavu explained.

Now in his early 30s, Dejavu has earned a reputation writing songs for entertainer Elephant Man. His credits include Chiny Ting, Pon Di River, Pon Di Bank and Wine Wine (Jook Gal).

He later toured with Elephant Man as an opening act.

"Elephant Man never gave my recording career any real attention. It's not about the money, but I was constantly writing for him and helping his career and my career was placed on the back burner. I'm an artiste first and a writer second. I just decided to do my thing on my own since I wasn't getting the real help from Elephant Man. There is no animosity there at all. I just decided to do me," Dejavu said.

His recent recordings include Nah Beg Nuttun and Yo Gaba Gaba' on the Instagram riddim which was produced by Fedda Weight Productions out of Florida.

Born Mario Wellington, he is originally from the community of Nannyville in St Andrew. His upcoming mix tape is earmarked for a summer release.
