These past few weeks, a wave from the Caribbean has flooded radio stations, yet while the world is bouncing on the sexy summer hit “Hold Yuh,” reggae singer Gyptian is still a stranger to most people.

Gyptian is not another rookie male artist and certainly not a one-hit wonder. Actually, the velvet-voice singer is already a star in his native island. He started to sing in Jamaica at the age of seven, though at that time he “did not take it seriously.” But after winning the 2004 Star Search which enabled him to perform at famous reggae show “Sting,” Gyptian started to work on his debut album. “My Name Is Gyptian” was released in 2006 and soon carried by the success of its first single “Beautiful Lady.”

The singer gained popularity in both West Indies and America as he was named Most Promising Entertainer at the 2006 International Reggae Awards of New York’s legendary Apollo Theater. In his 2008 sophomore album “I Can Feel Your Pain,” Gyptian delivered personal love songs, but also tracks dealing with political issues.

This talented artist has come a very long way since his debut in a Jamaican church, and if no one could have predicted the sensual “Huld Yuh,” it now feels like it was written. The video will keep you waiting while Gyptian’s new album is on its way, stay tuned…
