Prado pleased with Rotten Rich's success - April 20, 2017 Kingston Jamaica Reemerging Dancehall Artiste Prado, also known as Desperado, is quite pleased that the hard work invested into the promotion of his latest single has reaped real rewards.
The artiste has seen the single, produced by Apartment 19 Music, propel to one of the top juggling spots in the streets and can now be considered a street anthem.
“The response on the streets have been overwhelming, I never expected it and am very grateful that the fans are requesting the song at dances on a nightly basis. I have to give thanks to the selectors, the sound systems, the mix tape djs and all the weekly events for their support”. Prado reiterated.
The single ‘Rotten
Rich’ was recorded late last year on RDX’s Hot Foot Riddim that also features I
Octane, Spice, Raytid and RDX among others, over the last few months however
the song has been one of the top two singles rotated from the project. So far
the video has over 55,000 views on Instagram and 20,000 views
on YouTube and counting.
The single was inspired by the general hope the artiste has always had for black people who want to aspire to true wealth to actually achieve it. Prado believes that hard work is important in making the wealth dream a reality.
“We don't sit around talking about being poor we talk about getting
rich. I believe people should strive for wealth, not over happiness, not by
selling your soul. But go for wealth and do not settle.” Prado added
A phrase from the song "Rich till rat a nyam mi money” has
also caught on especially when the artiste performs it locally. So far Prado
has performed the single at some major events and received
excellent responses from the massive crowds, these events include; The Jamaica
Moves Launch with RDX at the Emancipation Park, the Digicel Grand Prix at the
National Stadium with Chi Ching Ching and he also performed with Popcaan at GT
Taylor’s Kite Fest in St Ann over the Easter weekend.
