SINGJAY Don Husky makes an appeal for more airplay for aspiring artistes with On and On, his latest single, produced by Downsound Records.

Although only 21 years-old, Don Husky (Rushane Brown) has done the studio rounds since he was a student at Holy Trinity High School in Kingston.

He is familiar with the challenges of trying to get that big 'buss'.

"Yuh song will play a Boasy Tuesday or Weddy Weddy but it neva pass the airport 'cause it don't get play pon radio," he said. "Is a money thing; nobody should get pay fi play music (on radio)."

Don Husky's passion about the lack of airplay for budding acts can be heard on On and On. He says his previous songs including Wah my Own and Have You Ever Loved Someone, got favourable exposure on radio.

Wah my Own was produced by 'Foota Hype', his mentor. Both are from the Whitehall Avenue area of St Andrew.

It was Foota Hype who introduced him him to Downsound, a label that has worked with a number of acts including Nanco, Ninjaman, Fantan Mojah, Nature and DYCR.

Don Husky says being around 'elders' like Ninjaman inspired him to write On and On.

"Him always tell mi sey when him start out from a song good it get play, it wasn't a money thing. The young artiste dem jus' want a chance," he said.
