It only took two weeks for Don Yute, the multi-talented artist, songwriter, actor and producer, to capture the coveted #1 position on the Online Radio Breakout Chart with thousands of airplay for his song “So Much Love.” The Online Radio Breakout Chart is based on actual verified spins from monitored digital stations in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. The chart is sent to leading magazines, websites, label executives and talent scouts throughout the music industry.
Signed to Capitol Records in 2005, the popular Port Antonio-born, Kingston-raised Don Yute describes his unique singing and deejay style as World Hop – a rhythm with a Dancehall flow but delivered like a rapper.
Some of Don Yute’s most notable production collaborations are: “Who is Dat Girl” and “Stalk a Sensimelia” done with Grammy Award winning producer Jim Jonsin, who also produced for many major artists such as Lil Wayne, Eminem, Akon, Pitbull, Jermaine Dupree and that is just to name a few. Don Yute has also scored placements on NBA and Fifa games with his singles “Dem Gals” and “A Lot Of Girls.” He has done songs with international stars: Sean Paul, a former schoolmate who credits Don Yute as his mentor, as well as Beenie Man, Spragga Benz and Wayne Wonder. His record with Wayne Wonder, “Excess Amount,” is known by reggae and dancehall lovers worldwide as one of the biggest dancehall party songs released in that time period.
Don Yute‘s latest album “Nexx Phase” offers a variety of genres: Dancehall, Conscious, Dance, and Soca. It features special guests Akon, Pitbull and Half Pint, with production credits going to Mo B Dick (Formerly of Beats by the Pound), the production team that sold millions of EP/CDs for Master P’s independent imprint No Limit Records.
