Up-and-coming singjay Primal is gearing up to make an indelible mark in the dancehall arena.

“I can't say it will be easy, but with God and my team it will be done. When I make my mark in dancehall it won't be one that's going to be easily removed,” the 19-year-old, told the Jamaica Observer recently.

Primal released several tracks last year, including Tick an' Tock, and Have a Dream produced by CPR Records. He hopes his upcoming set will get him the attention he deserves.

“The name of the latest track is Paper Ratings, featuring Ankle Socks and produced by Richie Royal Productions. My hope for my new track is for it to be a track that listeners can learn from or relate to…look out for it no later than June” he told the Observer.

He is currently promoting the single ahead of its release.

Hailing from Eltham Park in St Catherine, Primal, whose given name is Démeil Watson, said he recognised his passion for music at an early age.

“Well music was always my passion from a tender age, because back in primary school I used to be on the drumming team putting together beats to perform at the JCDC [Jamaica Cultural Development Commission] festival,” he said.

He attended Ensom City Primary and Jonathan Grant High in Spanish Town.

Primal said he has always wanted to puruse a career in accounting, but the pull of music is greater.

“I always wanted to venture into the field of accounting, but because of the love I have for music, right now I am making music my full-time career,” he said.
