In March 2009, dancehall artiste Mavado will be releasing his sophomore album, Mr Brooks … A Better Tomorrow on VP Records.

Mavado – who was crowned Best New Reggae Artiste at the 2008 MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards and by Rolling Stone magazine (April 2008) – is making dancehall a big-screen production.

The talented singjay has crafted his strongest album yet – a bittersweet struggle over the dichotomies in his world – past vs present, hope vs despair and freedom from strife.

Following Mavado’s critically acclaimed debut, Gangster For Life: The Symphony of David Brooks (July 2007), Mr Brooks … A Better Tomorrow is a true reflection of who Mavado (David Brooks) is today.

This second instalment of his latest hits and daring exploits are built on apocalyptic synthesiser progressions to which Mavado chats and sings simplistic yet profound lyrics with strong conviction and ease.

His contagious hook and clever outlaw antics from the album’s first single, So Special, have already turned this number one Jamaican smash in into a US commercial radio hit, remaining on Billboard’s Hot 100. Other tracks on the album include Overcome, Don’t Worry, So Blessed andIn Di Car Back.

Mavado’s first album remains in the Top 25 Billboard Reggae sales chart since its debut, and with major scores and endorsement deals, Mavado has gone from obscurity to ghetto super stardom.
