K9ngston K9ng

Dancehall artiste K9ngston K9ng has been on a steady momentum with the single Navigator and its accompanying dance the Navigator Skank.

"The feedback is great because it even have a dance to it. Every selector a play it, whether at Dolly Sundays, Uptown Mondays, Boasy Tuesdays… it's rotating nicely," the deejay, whose given name is Gregory Ward, told the Jamaica Observer.

The JR Productions single has gained almost 185,000 views on YouTube in a month.

With an impressive career that spans over three decades, the deejay has had his fair share of successes which include working with the Nature Bridge and Fiwi Music music labels. He has also worked extensively with Builders Music Label and was featured on the Gallop rhythm.

K9ngston K9ng collaborated with Shane O on Nah Nah Nah and Can't Get We Down.

As Navigator continues to draw attention, the entertainer is hopeful that it will reach acclaimed music charts.

"My hopes is to get it known to the Caribbean dancehall fans until it can reach Billboard, because it has that quality. Make it a big hit so that people can see that dancehall isn't in a coma," K9ngston King said.

He is looking to collaborate with Popcaan, Chronic Law, Mavado, Beres Hammond, and Sanchez.

Meanwhile, the deejay says his constant efforts to push positivity in dancehall sets him apart from his counterparts.

"From day one I always bring myself to the dancehall fraternity without being explicit or use sexual content, and I always get a good feedback and my songs are always in sequence," he said.
