For the last two to three weeks there has been a well-documented back and forth between Mavado and Vybz Kartel. The beef has even gone as far as jibes at Mavado about his son’s incarceration and possible life sentence. Kartel insinuated a bit of karmic justice at the expense of the Gully Gawd’s son. However, despite the toxic energy, Mavado was able to release a single titled On My Mind. But, it’s not Vybz or any of the Gaza contingent on his mind.
On My Mind, a DJ Frass production is more of an x-rated erotic track with graphic descriptions of a sexual nature. Maybe the perfect remedy to get his mind off the negative energy. Vado delivers a jaw-dropping jam for his female fans and dancehall fanatics. It’s been a long time since Vado did a song of this nature and he definitely rolled back the years showcasing his sultry seductive vocals for the fairer sex. To be fair Mavado’s voice is probably the one aspect that trumps his nemesis Vybz Kartel, and he uses it to great effect.
Repeating some of the lyrics is hard enough for me without having to censor. So, I would rather have you listen on your own as Vado really goes in with his descriptions. What most fans would be very interested to know (including myself) is who is his muse or is the song’s inspiration? The track has garnered over 200k views on Youtube in just 5 days and is still counting.
Mavado, to be honest, is not as prolific as he once was. But he still has got what it takes to sell records. A lot has changed for him, but you still have to pay him his dues. He is still an iconic player in the dancehall world who still has bangers in him. Riddimsworld looks forward to many more hits from him and this track serves more like a tonic amidst the highly publicised beef with Kartel.
