Yung Son Dada to land début single
Yung Son

Two days before Father's Day 2023, on Friday, June 16, up-and-coming artiste Yung Son Dada will release his début single, Paternity (Dad Is Coming Home).

The track is an ode to his young son, who is the sole surviving child of triplets.

The single is produced and distributed by the Gramlawd Records label and will be available for streams and downloads worldwide on all major digital retail outlets.

Yung Son Dada, born Bromson Forbes, in the eastern parish of St Thomas, now resides in the volatile Salt Spring community of Montego Bay, St James.

The artiste says he was exposed to music at a very early age as many his relatives were either singers or DJs.

He remembers that, as a kid, he usually loved to sing. He also sang at school concerts and was well-received, but he never took a life in music very seriously at that point. It was not until he turned 16 years old that his true interest in the arts developed.

He admits that it was whilst he went to stay with a friend, who was deeply into hip hop music, he himself could not understand the style of rapping, so he would just sing along with the choruses, which he now credits to him making some of the wickedest hooks.

The young singer-songwriter said he is influenced by dancehall superstar Mavado and international rap icon DMX.

The 29-year-old brands his style of music as dancehall rhythm and blues and likened it to the work of American singer and rapper 6lack.

Yung Son Dada said that he hopes a few collaborations are in the pipeline as he grows his career.
