At the top of 2009, the rising superstar unveils the second chapter of his stirring street narrative Mr Brooks...A Better Tomorrow on VP Records. The talented singjay has crafted his strongest album yet a bittersweet struggle over the dichotomies in his world past vs. present, good vs. evil, hope vs. despair, and freedom from strife. It is a true reflection of who Mavado (David Brooks) is today. This sophomore installment of his latest hits and daring exploits are built on apocalyptic synthesizer progressions to which Mavado chats and sings simplistic yet profound lyrics with strong conviction and ease. His contagious hook and clever outlaw antics from the album's first single "So Special" (produced by Linton "TJ" White) has already turned this #1 Jamaican and U.K. smash into a U.S. commercial radio hit remaining on Billboard's Top 100 Hot R&B/Hip Hop Airplay and Song chart for over a month (peaking at #52). The chart toppers do not end there, Mavado pours out his heart and soul on every track from his new diary. While his community is plagued by violence and corruption, Mavado unites the ghetto youth on rally cry anthems like "Overcome" (produced by Stephen McGregor) & "Don't Worry" (produced by Daseca) and gives thanks to Jah for all his good fortunes on "So Blessed" (produced by Stephen McGregor). And a Mavado album would not be complete without a steamy track like "In Di Car Back"(produced by Stephen McGregor), where sexual escapades and desires run rampant on this spicy melody. Mavado has gone from obscurity to ghetto super stardom with his enigmatic gangster facade. Part prophet, part superhero and part fugitive, Mavado is the voice of the streets and represents dancehall for the next generation.
