SINGJAY Mr Straight is determined to make his mark in the competitive arena of dancehall. To achieve this, the up-and-coming artiste said he keep his songs "real" so that everyone can relate them.

Mr Straight recently released his 14-track debut album titled Victory on the Big City Vibration label.

Mr Straight (given name Horace Hudson) shared the inspiration behind the set. He said people are facing hard times and it is easy to choose the wrong route.

"After seeing too many people doing the wrong things, the materials just came to life," he said.

Among the tracks are Shaky, Live Up and the title track Victory.

Now in his 30s, Mr Straight was born in Westmoreland.

While attending Petersfield High School, he developed an interest in music. He honed his craft by performing at school events as well as on community sound systems.

He got his break in 2010 with the self produced track Goodas, which features Black Ice. The following year, he dropped Lowe Mi Nuh.
