‘Fever,’which collectively has over 50 million streams on YouTube has climbed to number 36 on the coveted Billboard R & B/Hip Hop Airplay chart.
According to Vybz Kartel’s business partner Michael Dawson, the incarcerated deejay is in high demand in the US.
He also credits people like Drake and Justin Bieber for having brought back dancehall into the mainstream and says that Vybz Kartel is the best dancehall has right now.
