Jason Mighty in 'Overflow' mode

Popular Jamaican gospel artiste Jason Mighty says despite several career challenges, he's determined to spread the word of God through his fifth studio album — Overflow.

"It's difficult without a record label and budget to push the album but because of the love and message in the music we have to keep going for Jesus Christ," he told the Jamaica Observer.

Released on July 30, the 13-track sat was jointly produced by Heart Cour Production, Dajourney Production, Kevin Lazarus Music, Heavenly Waves Production, and His Majesty Sound System.

Three years in the making, the album process was delayed by the pandemic, which restricted him from being in direct contact with his producers or the musicians.

"There were so many challenges — from writing blocks to difficulties with production — I feel like I faced it all, but by God's grace, each challenge only helped to give character to this project. I hope that this project will be my widest reaching album to date. I really hope that it ministers to everyone, everywhere in every season," said the singer.

He is, however, satisfied with the end result, and has been getting rave reviews.

"The fans are enjoying the different genre of music, radio stations are showing the album love and the streams are doing good so far, to God be the glory," said the Dinthill All-Age past student.

Some of his most well-known tracks are Jesus Bigger, Chauffeur, Can't Walk Alone, Ketch Ah Fire, and Holy Ghost Bruck Mi Down.

After almost two decades in the industry, Jason Mighty is focused on spreading the gospel to the emerging generations.

"My desire is to see the younger generation start to put God back into their lives and walk in His desire for a life of goodness and love. Right now, crime in our country is overtaking the lives of so many and it can only be stopped by an overflow of God into the lives of our fellow countrymen, women and children," he said.

Following this new album, the artiste is taking his next move one step at a time.

"My next project is in God's hands. I would love to continue to do music, tour and share the message of salvation, hope and love with the world," the singer said.
