Jay-5Flow happy with DNA test

US-based dancehall artiste Jay-5Flow is pumped up about the early buzz surrounding his latest album, DNA.

“The album is entitled DNA because it signifies the belief that music is in my blood and also because of my lifestyle. Everything about the album is the truth, and it is my best work yet,” he said.

The beats for the 14-track album were provided by Minto Play Da Riddim, who has worked with the likes of Sean Paul, Masicka, and Munga Honorebel. Others credited on the project are DJ Crooks Production (California); Warrior Music Group (New York); and Lucas L3 Production from St Catherine.

Jay-5Flow has already shot a video for the lead single DNA and is preparing to shoot another for So Loud featuring Kalado.

“I will be shooting the So Loud video in November this year to coincide with the album’s release on October 22 2022. I pushed back the release date because I wanted to make sure that I give my fans a quality project,” he said.

Jay-5Flow is best known for the hit single Dancehall Macarena which got him a collaboration with Japanese, the biggest reggaeton artiste in Panama, and which did extremely well in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Belize, Peru, and Brazil.

Jay-5Flow, whose given name is Omar Forsythe, spent his earlier years in Ocho Rios, St Ann, but migrated to the United States after completing his studies.

The entertainer said he got involved in acting while living in California. He said he made small appearances in episodes of CSI Miami, Franklyn and Family Time.

In 2008 he inked a record deal with Spragga Benz’s Red Square label and shortly after released his debut single Back Against the Wall. Other songs that followed included Just Dance, Nuh Regular and Shake it Senorita.
