Internationally acclaimed Dancehall artiste, David Brooks, more popularly known as Mavado has landed a major, overseas record deal. The popular singjay announced during an interview with HOT 97′s Angie Martinez that he’s signed a record deal with DJ Khaled’s We The Best Music Group.
Mavado took to the airwaves of the New York City based radio station to break the big news; prior to DJ Khaled’s confirmation of said announcement. “That’s right, New York City! Mavado is officially signed to We The Best Music Group,” said an excited Khaled. The Miami born hip-hop superstar & disc jock further elaborated on the new deal with the “Gully Gaad.”“Mavado’s part of the family; part of the brand. It’s about to be an expansion to the movement. It’s going to be a movie, you feel me? I’m really excited about this because my roots and where I come from, I’ve known Mavado since before he was Mavado. Mavado always puts great music out, and I just want to add more to it, add some steroids to it,” Khaled told HOT 97.
The announcement comes nearly two months after Mavado was re-issued a United States visa by the United States Embassy in Kingston. Additionally, this comes four months after Mavado launched his own record label, Mansion Records & released his hit, debut single via the label, “Delilah” shortly thereafter. “Delilah” was added to HOT 97′s regular playlist earlier this week.
