Fast-rising Canadian-based dancehall artiste Skystar has released the visuals for his new single entitled 35 To Life which has already begun to make the rounds on social media as such the deejay is understandably optimistic about the chances of this single becoming a hit.
The melodic single has already made its way onto local and international playlists and according to the artiste he has high hopes of securing a major hit with this single because of its catchy hook and relatable topic.
“This song represents for ghetto people worldwide as it depicts real life struggles but promotes resilience despite challenges. I am a product of the ghetto but I decided from an early age to be an agent of positive change, which is why I am so determined to inspire the youths who are facing the same struggle that I went though in my early years” stated Skystar.
Born Ainsworth Rose Skystar was drawn to music from a tender age and despite taking other career paths at various points in life he always returned to music as he simply could not avoid his gift and passion. The Mudtown (Patrick Gardens) native says lived with his family in a one-bedroom board structure with no running water and electricity and would often have to hustle in the market to make ends meet. Things got worse before it got better, as the house was burnt down by gang members and so at only nine years old he started going back and forth between family members. However, his musical goals always kept him focussed and it was not long before word started to spread about his talent.
Currently, Skystar is enjoying a major street and social media buzz in Jamaica while his “Farrin Badniss” Collective is dominating the Canadian dancehall underground music scene. His latest singles entitled winning Move and 35 to Life are currently enjoying regular rotation on local and international radio.
