The streets are talking about the single, 'Dancehall City', powered by the reggae legend Junior Reid in collaboration with his son, Yung JR and red hot rookie, Blaw Minott, son of reggae legend , Sugar Minott. 

"The single is getting play at all the local street dances, it lock down Hot Mondays and Uptown Mondays this week, mash up Boasy Tuesdays, lock down Wappingz and rounda Ki Ki. When the song drop, the dancers dem a tek to the dance floor  and ah mash up the place," Junior Reid said. 

The song, which is a stirring tribute to the origins of dancehall, also name drops the late great Gerald 'Bogle' Levy and Willie Haggart, two great icons of dancehall culture. Junior Reid explains the conceptualisation of the single. 

"Braw Minott came to me with the idea, and he sang his part, and I helped to co-wrote it, and voiced it for him.He asked me to put out the song, so I just went in full strength and pushed it and featured Yung JR on it as well," he said. 

A video for the single was released eight weeks ago, and the song has been steadily gaining momentum and it has been bubbling on several major charts. Last week, it finally broke into the top tier, soaring to #3 on the FIWI Choice Top ten music charts on TVJ.
"It's a great look, the song has been building for a while and we are also getting some great feedback on the song overseas," he said.

In the meantime, Yung JR, who is presently signed to the JR Productions, is now working on his soon to be released E.P "Start the Movement" with producer and brother Adoney Reid. The EP features songs such as 'Raggamuffin' and 'General' and will feature talents such as his older brother Juju Reid.
