Dancehall artiste Demarco is fast approaching the one million-view threshold with his latest video for track Till My Time Come.

The single was released last month under his True Gift Entertainment label, and is available for streaming on all major download platforms.

The video, released two weeks ago, sees Demarco playing the unapologetic role of a gangster living his life on his own terms, until his inevitable end.

“I am just giving the fans what they want , street bangers, club bangers, lyrics, metaphors, telling stories through music, stories that reflect the grimy side of life,” Demarco said.

He has been riding a wave as his previous video, Bunx Pon It, released last month, racked up over 2.5 million views on the social media platform YouTube.

“The Bunx Pon It video is still getting a lot of views in Africa, Europe and the Caribbean Diaspora, so right now, it's a good look,” Demarco, whose real name is Colin Demar Edwards, said.

Demarco recently performed at the Creole Culture Fest at Miramar Regional Park amphitheatre in Florida.

Over the years Demarco has scored hits as a producer, songwriter and an artiste. He is known for the hit singles, Puppytail, Standing Soldiers, I Love My Life and No Wahala featuring Akon and Runtown, which has racked up over 5 million views. He has produced singles and beats for industry heavyweights like Sean Paul, singer-rapper Olivia, and rapper Styles P.

“I'm a well-rounded artiste, producer, songwriter and engineer. When I go to the studio, I generally start off with a blank slate and whatever mood I am in or the feel I get, I just start writing. After I find the right melody, I then determine the direction I want to go,” Demarco said, explaining his “creative process”.

“But at the end of day, it's the people who decide what is a hit and what is not — I am just putting in the work and making good music,” he said.
