Grammy Award-nominated Jamaican recording artist Cham (best known for his 2006 “Ghetto Story”) is back with a new single called ‘Fighter’ featuring Damian ‘JR Gong’ Marley – which features a new electro-beat – something which we haven’t heard from Cham thus far.
Produced by Dave Kelly for Madhouse Records, Mr. Kelly finds the right notes to get the attention of the youths by introducing the chune with an electronic sounding base and a militant drum pattern.
This is the perfect opening for Cham to state: “We made it but we did things our way / gotta give thanks and praises each day / we hustle real hard so we control our future / tun it up ….” These words make way for Jr. Gong as he sing-jays: “Like a beacon on the mountain / shining through like the rising sun / so shall it be for the faithful / the ones who never stop till the work is done / we grind cause the system / does not favour the common man / but he shall reap the riches / plentiful like the grains of sand….”
Cham tells us of producers who over looked him as an artist because his tone was nasal and not like most other artists. Dave Kelly saw the passion in a young 16-17-18 year old Cham and worked with him, and now look at where he is today. The “Fighter” in Cham came out, and still comes out every time he hits the recording booth and the stage. He fought so the world can know his talent … the words he DJ’s comes from experience so this record is a special gift from Cham to fans as he says ‘I understand.’
