On-the-rise dancehall artiste Kenniel Brown, aka Kenny Bling, has vowed to make his mark in 2017 and with the summer upon us, the singjay looks set to make that promise a reality. His Afar Music Group-produced single, Mi Chargie, is proving to be the perfect remedy for Dancehall hungry fans. On the infectious Level Up riddim, Mi Chargie can best be described as “a reality tune that couldn't be any more real”. It tells the true-to-life experience of the singer/songwriter, Kenny Bling, and its themes of friendship and loyalty are two which many can closely identify with, and have not hesitated to embrace.
"I am singing about my own life… the friends around me and how we live. Genio, one of the names mentioned in the song is a real person. He is a loyal friend from a long time," explained Kenny Bling, who credits his father, veteran dancehall deejay Oneil “Scully” Brown, with instilling in him the passion for music. Kenny added that with the loads of positive feedback that he has been receiving, Mi Chargie "looks like the one".
The single has been enjoying high level rotation in places as far away as Russia, a few countries in Europe, nearer home in the US and, of course right here "a yard". Among the radio stations in Jamaica that have been showing love for Mi Chargie are Zip, Irie FM, Hitz and Suncity, and Kenny Bling is more than pleased. Interestingly, the streets have also stepped in and taken the song to another level with big name selectors including Boom Boom giving Mi Chargie the seal of approval with massive airplay in the dance.
Hard on the heels of the label releasing Kenny Bling's first single for them, Afar Music Group (AFM) in recognition of Kenny's immense talent and potential, has signed the artiste to a recording contract. Eager to get back in the studio, the AFM team has already started a new project, but the main focus for now is the marketing and promotion of Mi Chargie, especially in the lead up to Jamaica's internationally acclaimed annual Reggae and Dancehall festival Reggae Sumfest.
With Mi Chargie
poised for the big time, Kenny Bling and his team have taken the decision to shoot the accompanying music video. This, Kenny says will be done in the next few weeks. The location will be Stony Hill in Kingston, Jamaica.
