Those songs include 'Grip Me' which recently entered the HYPE TV Top 20 charts, and his high-energy cameo on the breakout ensemble hit, When We Roll, on the Down Sound Records label.
"Things have really been looking up over the last couple of months as I have fine tuned my sound, and the ladies are responding to me.The Grip Me song is doing well and mi have a next rude song called 'Gimme a Sex Look' that the ladies are working with, and whenever 'Roll' plays in the clubs, the cameras are trained on the Down Sound crew as we each perform the song, the ting tun up," he said.
The Grip Me' video was shot at Dover and features fast race cars and a smoking hot lead girl for the video. "People are going to love the video, I am in full racing car gear, it mad!"

Born Warren Gordon, he is the only son of farm worker, Adolphus Gordon and Florence Gordon, a professional secretary; he grew up in a quaint rural town called Clarksonville in St. Ann. "I used to play the keyboard in the church and sing. I also do a bit with the drums, and I participated in after school jams and community events so I grew up wanting to do this," he said.
After graduating Holmwood Technical High school, he however, decided to attend classes at Brown's Town Community College to re-sit CXC subjects and to a do pre-university course in computing. However, financial difficulties soon scuttled such ambitions and he decided to head to Kingston to pursue a career as a singer.
"An uncle of mine knew Angel, who was the resident engineer for Down Sound Records and he brought me to Spanish Town and we made the link and I've been learning and developing my sound ever since," he said.The first song G Warren ever recorded was 'Show Us the Way' on the Gunman rhythm, and he has surged forward in his development since then. The artiste's cleverly arranged lyrics, and polished voice make him an exciting young prospect for 2012 and beyond.
