  Down Sound Records artiste Nature returned to the number one spot with ‘World Peace’ this week, dethroning I Octane from the pole position on the FIWI Choice Top Ten charts.  
Nature believes that the World Peace concept is particularly relevant given the violent anti-American upheavals that convulsed cities in many parts of the Islamic world last week since the trailer of an anti-Muslim film aired on Youtube. 
“When you watch CNN and Fox News, you see that it's crazy right now, several countries were having anti-US protests last week, everybody heated, it feels like we are on the verge of World War III so right now, more than ever, we need the concept of World Peace to go out there, it is something that we should all aspire towards. The song itself World Peace is still getting massive rotation, people are loving it because the World Peace concept is appealing to every nation and every religion," he said in a release.
The single, produced on the Down Sound Records imprint, has also popped up on reggae charts in Kenya, Australia and France. The video for the single peaked at #3 on the CVM Hitlist charts. It also held the pole position of the HYPE TV Top 20 charts for three weeks, and peaked at #1 on the CVM TV video charts.
The single has been opening doors for Nature who travelled to the United States over the weekend to meet Commissioner Gordon Williams, the multi-Grammy award winning producer.
"He saw my video, World Peace on MTV Tempo and was impressed especially because of what is going on now in the Middle East. He reached out to me via Facebook, and I put him on to my manager, Josef Bogdanovich, and expressed an interest to vibe with me along with a band because he loved my brand of reggae music and my message of love and righteousness," he said. 
Commissioner Gordon Williams' credits include projects with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Teddy Riley, Babyface, Staci Lattisaw, Diana Ross, New Edition, Nile Rodgers and Quincy Jones. After becoming Senior Director of A&R at Sony Music Entertainment several years ago, Gordon worked on Lauryn Hill's solo debut smash, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" and Will Smith's blockbuster movie and soundtrack "Men in Black" and copped two Grammys.
In the meantime, Nature will be launching the video for his latest single, Trying Man, this week, premiering the video on CVM and HYPE TV. 
"I am very excited about it," he said. 
Nature is also known for the singles Mama You Saved Me, and Wasting Time.
Nature is working on a yet-to-be titled album which will be released this Fall on the DSR imprint. He is also in negotiations for upcoming tours.
