General Degree Debuts on iTunes Top 10 with New EP 'Bambalam'


Iconic dancehall star General Degree makes a splashy return with his new EP Bambalam, now available worldwide from all major digital retailers (released on July 15, 2014) from FOX FUSE. The Jamaican deejay/rapper, born Cardiff Butt in Mandeville, Jamaica, blasted onto the music scene over 20 years ago and has remained a mainstay on airwaves and playlists for two decades now.


Consistently touring and keeping his brand relevant with fans–a rare accomplishment in the dancehall genre–this timeless artist now returns with a collection of new hits and the world is taking notice.

Bambalam debuted on the iTunes Canada Reggae Top Albums chart at #10, on the iTunes U.S. Reggae Top Albums chart at #23, and on the iTunes U.K. Reggae Top Albums chart #39. Its lead track “Bambalam” peaked at #57 on the iTunes U.S. Reggae Top Songs chart. The EP also received coveted features on the iTunes U.S. Reggae New & Noteworthy, Google Play’s New Releases: Reggae Singles, and on the iTunes U.S. Reggae Albums Under $8, during its week of release.

“I am very happy to know that my EP Bambalam is getting such a great reception on the international market,” reveals General Degree. “I’ve been focusing 100% on my career and to be getting such good results, it’s a wonderful feeling!”

General Degree first gained international fame with his massive dancehall hits “Traffic Blocking,” “Granny” and “Boom Boom,” which, among other hits, still enjoy airplay and club play today, worldwide. He now adds another blockbuster to his popular catalog with his new single “Bambalam,” as the title track scores a coveted spot on the official 2014 Zumba Mega Mix 41 playlist. The up-tempo, high-energy tune has been serviced to all official Zumba instructors and is currently being enjoyed by Zumba aficionados globally. “I want music fans to enjoy my new collection of works as it is some of my best,” he adds.

The EP boasts five (5) thrilling tracks. Four tracks were produced by Panamanian producer BK, adding authentic Latin flavors to Degree’s dancehall antics, thereby propelling him into the Latin Pop sphere. Dancehall producer Jah Snowcone, who produced Sean Paul’s international hit and the Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper “Temperature,” pools his talent onto the EP for the throwback dancehall vibes on “Nuh Fraid.” The blazing track has been in steady rotation locally in Jamaica and across reggae/dancehall platforms internationally, even recently making its debut on David Rodigan’s show on BBC 1Xtra, airing across the UK.

Bambalam brings new gems for the legendary dancehall star and is guaranteed to satisfy General Degree longtime fans, and earn him new ones.
