Dancehall singjay Lord Cavalli is generating a lot of traction with his single, 'One Lord' which showcases his own brand of 'dancehall-British trap', 

"The video for 'One Lord' has racked up over 51,000 views on my  VEVO, and the song is doing well in the streets, and the song has been added to rotation on several major radio stations," said the 25 year-old artiste, born Cavali McDonald.

He released the single, 'One Lord',  under his label, One Lord Records, earlier this year. The song is being distributed digitally by Zojak Worldwide and are available on a number of online digital platforms. Other singles, 'Four Wives', 'Deal With It' and 'Striker' will be distributed by J Wonder 21st distribution under the One Lord/MBR labels.

He is being managed by and is signed to MBR Records headed by Tawanna Jones. The deejay recently made a much-hyped cameo in dancehall superstar Shaggy's latest video project, 'Money Up'.

"Look out for some hot releases this Summer,  Cavalli is "Dancehall's Richest Artiste"  and he made a cameo in Shaggy's new video  'Money Up' which features Noah Powa. So look out for something extremely extravagant from the artiste. When he was in Grants Pen for the shoot, lot of people came up to him to take pics, we had to have King Alarm security and an armed off duty police officer was there providing security for Cavalli," Jones said. 

Producers such as production duo Busta Rhymes and Spliff Star, and Andrew 'Anju Blacks' Myrie have also begun to send beats his way. 

"Cavalli did a song with Fanatics -- who recently produced 'Just Touch Down' with Stylo G, Nicki Minaj and Vybz Kartel -- and that song is coming out soon. Many others are also showing an interest," Jones said.  

Cavalli is confirmed to perform on a series of gigs in countries such as Rwanda, South Sudan, Nigeria, Uganda and in the region of East Africa later this year.

"We are getting a lot of local offers for shows, we will confirm the African shows by May, so we're just putting in the hard work and gearing up for the Summer," Jones added.
