Mavado Gone gospel?


mavado_pic.jpgRadio stations in Jamaica couldn't get enough of Mavado's "Jehovah Guide Me" on Wednesday when it was released for airplay there.

Said to have gone gospel with this one, the single is one of three new releases that have Mavado racing into the new year at high speed. "Money Changer" was recorded for Shane Brown and "Mi Henessey" for SSMG.

The hot "Jehovah Guide Me" comes at a time when controversy surrounds the dancehall leader. Its balanced blend of choir harmonies coupled with lyrics that refer to the police and army invading his party contrast well with his pronounced appeal for the cessation of violence in the country.

Produced by Baby G, the stand-out track is an adaptation of the Gospel version and Mavado spices it up with his unique vocal style, carving out another anthem.

Mavado's Little X produced video clip for the single, "Last Night" will have its Jamaican premier in two weeks and "Jehovah Guide Me" will have a video to match shortly.
