Alty B Aims To ‘Nice Up’ The Vibe In Canadian Dancehall With Return Single

After taking an extended break from the music scene, internationally recognized recording artist, Alty B, known for his 2013 smash hit, Island Girl (feat. Richie Loop) has returned with a proverbial call to arms, shooting lyrics aimed at bringing back a positive vibe to dancehall across the Greater Toronto Area and Canada with his new single, Nice Up In Yah.

With the Canadian dancehall scene in need of a mainstream boost, Alty B speaks on many of its promising talents that have shown flashes of their talents, but have seldom been heard from in recent times. With ‘no vindictive feelings’ being expressed, as the song’s intro indicates, Nice Up in Yah mentions friends and fellow acts such as Eyesus, Sample King, Ziggy Eva Strap, Blessed and Lindo P as he openly wonders why Canadian dancehall fans have not seen much from some of the familiar names within the local industry.

The Island Girl singer ponders why ‘from when Five Star nuh sing bout di gyal dem, Badda Squad? nuh hear from way back when,” as he looks for answers as to why the scene is not as vibrant as it once was. Furthermore, he addresses fans who have questioning his own hiatus from the music scene as he reveals the birth of his first child played a major role as he put family first before deciding to make his triumphant return.

Featuring the combination of a pulsating beat and Alty’s vibrant personality, Nice Up In Yah is a charge to bring back the energy and dedication to Canadian dancehall that it so desperately needs, with the always-ambitious entertainer willing to step to the forefront to lead said charge.

Produced by fellow Jamaica College alum, Ramus and Brampton-based Unit One Recording, this track is simple but effective with its motivation; a chance to rejuvenate interest this popular genre across the GTA and garner attention from the necessary industry players to again put Canadian dancehall on the map. With a mixtape in the works and other projects to come, Alty B aims to ‘nice up’ the scene again through his music.
