Mavado making rounds on MTV, BET

Jamaican superstar Mavado, currently breaking barriers for dancehall music, is firmly entrenching himself in the fabric of US popular culture.

Another round of promotion in New York saw Mavado making an appearance at the MTV studios in Times Square, where he recorded an in-depth interview with Rahman Dukes for the station’s flagship MTV News slot.

From there it was on to the G Unit offices to record an interview for 50 Cent’s wildly popular entertainment website www.thisis50.com. The videotaped interview will go up on Sunday on thisis50.com and will run all of next week, coinciding with the March 3rd release of Mavado’s sophomore album Mr Brooks – A Better Tomorrow.

With the release of his sophomore album on digital format via iTunes exclusively a week prior to the physical CD release, Mavado has once again broke new ground for dancehall. Since iTune’s inception almost six years ago, Bob Marley’s timeless Legend album, voted the album of the 20th century, has been the #1 selling album on the reggae section of iTunes. Today, that changed for the first time ever, as Mavado took the top spot with his Mr Brooks album, released on Tuesday.

With a hectic promotional schedule set for its physical release next week, including in-store signings and an appearance on HOT 97’s Angie Martinez show, Mr Brooks certainly looks set to continue the huge strides he has made since bursting on to the scene just three years ago.

The album is available at www.itunes.com for purchase.
