Mavado has tapped rising star Jahshii for his latest song release, “Tears,” which dropped on Wednesday afternoon along with a music video. The song is produced by Damage Musiq and features a music video that was released on his YouTube Vevo account, which quickly racked up 34,000 views just a few hours after it was released.
The song is an emotional heartbreak ballad where Mavado talks about missing his loved one and struggling to deal with the loss of his loved one. Jahshii’s lyrical prowess is also tested once again, and he rises to the occasion as he puts down his trap dancehall style and sings in his verse while paying homage to his late friend and producer, Activity, who was shot and killed by police in Grants Pen in 2021.
Both artists appear vulnerable as they channel their feelings into the song, which was pointed out by Mavado’s former mentor, Bounty Killer, as he praised the artists.
“Heartfelt emotions in this one,” Bounty Killer said to his two former collaborators.
At the 1:20 point, Jahshii pays tribute to his late friend Mabreco ‘Activity’ Watson, who was shot and killed by police on December 28, 2021. The police said the producer was killed during an alleged armed confrontation with police at his residence in Grants Pen. Activity previously produced several hit songs for Jahshii, such as “Cream of the Crop” and others. The Independent Commission of Investigations, INDECOM, had announced an investigation into the killing after the producer’s friends and family disputed the police reports.
