Five Star Records recording artiste Baby Chris has attracted the attention of international record label Bad Boy Records after A&R talent scouts heard his breakout dancehall song, What Did I Do, being played by DJ Nore on Power 105.1.
He performed for the scouts in a listening session and they were blown away by his charisma, onstage presence and his crystal clear vocals.
"Based on their reaction, I know I did well, who knows where this might lead, maybe I could get an endorsement contract, do some modellingfor them. They said I have the image, the swagger, the style, and as the girls dem would say, the pretty face. Is not all about the music for them, yuh can end up doing a lot of stuff," Baby Chris said in an interview.s
Baby Chris was invited to appear at several major radio stations such as Power 105.1 with Garry G, 95.9, Fire Redz, Linkage Radio, Royal Radio, and BCAP Network. Baby Chris only recently returned to Jamaica from a one-month tour with I-Octane where they made stops in places such as Texas, California, Chicago, Miami, New Jersey, Connecticut, New York, Brooklyn, and Bronx.
The artiste hinted that his management team has been getting calls for appearances on major shows to share billing with pop acts such as Justin Bieber and Sean Kingston.
"What Did I Do is the song that is doing it for me right now, I will be getting a report on the amount of spins it is generating on major urban stations in the US beginning next week and it's a tremendous feeling because fi me as a ghetto youth a come out of Cockburn Pen in Jamaica to be doing these things. Mi give thanks to my management team, Five Star, and I-Octane too because if a neva him seh 'Baby Chris come tek on the road', mi probably wudden get da shine deh.
