Dancehall star Waspp is earning rave reviews for his latest single, ‘Praise Mi God’, which celebrates his relationship with God even in the face of crippling tragedies and challenges. The single, recorded on the So Unique Records imprint, has been generating a lot of comments on Twitter and Facebook because of its emotional and spiritual content.

“I just felt compelled to do a song like this because of the random things that have been happening in my life over the past year. Fire burned down my house, a plane I was travelling almost fell out of the sky, I have seen bodies in car accidents…it’s been a rough couple of months, so this is me saying thanks to the Almighty for keeping me alive,” he said. “The fire really set me back, but when I look at my life, I am grateful that I am still above ground, that gives me a unique perspective, and that keeps me grounded because there is a higher power moving in my life, and I have a closer relationship with my creator now than ever before...and big up all my fans for their continued support,” Waspp said.
The artiste whose given name is Marvin Clarke, wowed fans in the US during a month-long promotional tour of North America where he performed at several popular spots on the U.S club circuit. Despite the personal challenges, Waspp has had a successful year, scoring the fifth number one of his career with his single when 'Hot Like a Fiyah' shot to the top of the FIWI Choice video chart. The artiste's previous number ones include: 'Cry Fi Dem', 'Unfair Officer', 'Buss Di Place' and the thought-provoking ‘Thank You’.
Produced by JA Productions on the Overtime Rhythm ‘Hot Like Fiyah’ continues to enjoy heavy rotation on the FM Airwaves and has also become a favourite on the playlist of several top disc jocks across the Diaspora. The single also peaked at #3 on the CVM Hitlist video charts in May. Earlier this year, Waspp released his ‘Above Average’ mixtape that registered over 10,000 downloads online. And he continued to break ground as a dancehall act with the release of a song titled 'Hardcore Vibes' accompanied by a mini documentary shot in the environs of his home€ town. The documentary explores the concept behind the song and provides visual insights of typical life in the inner city community seen through the eyes of Waspp and his compatriots. “I am just going to continue to push the boundaries and challenge myself. I am not easily defined, I am an artiste in every sense of the word, I use my life as a canvass to create my art,” he said.
