This is not Kartel’s first time on the Billboard chart. He has had Billboard success with songs like “Clarks,” and “Romping Shop.”
Kartel’s business partner, Michael Dawson, said the incarcerated deejay is in high demand in the US.
“I think people like Drake and Justin Bieber have brought back dancehall into the mainstream and Vybz Kartel is the best dancehall has right now, so he will be the most searched-for entertainer. In the States right now, Vybz Kartel is very popular, and mainstream radio has been playing a lot of dancehall music,” he said.
