"It's your boy!" This intro has been steadily growing in popularity in the Dancehall arena, because it's the lyrical signature for MU-RCE, a new singjay sensation.
He describes himself as a deejay for the girls, and, he has been "living up". Songs like, "Please Call Me," "Mary Mary" and "Dancing Time," have been cementing him in the rough and tumble Dancehall arena. Those songs have been followed by his hit joint "In a Di Club", a single produced by internationally renown music producer Cordell 'Skatta' Burrell.
Speaking to YardFlex.com, MU-RCE revealed that at present he is promoting a new song called "Jump and Split"; a song that is creating a storm on the Jamaican airwaves. A video is in the pipeline. "The girls love my flow," he said, adding that he is comfortable with the level of acceptance he has received form the "hard to please" Jamaican audience.
Being the "girl's man" his image proclaims has linked him to controversy in recent times. A rumored love affair with hot Dancehall female singer Macka Diamond made the front page of one of Jamaica's leading tabloids recently. Responding when questioned about this he said, "I'm not selfish, I love to interact with the ladies. It does not always have to be more than friendship."
MU-RCE came to prominence six years ago with a song titled Come Back Home, which was produced by Cecil Williams. Since then he said it has not been all smooth, but his hard work is paying off. He thanks Claudette Kemp, manager for Dancehall superstar Capleton, for supporting his young career.
"I have always aspired to be a singer. As a matter of fact on career day while I was in high school, when I was asked what I want to do as a professional, I said a singer. So I am pursuing my dream," he said.
And, proof of his growing success exits with a number of international appearances in the next few weeks; in the United States of America, in Atlanta, Connecticut and in Miami, Florida.
