About Teejay:

From Montego Bay, Jamaica to stages all over the world, Teejay was born into a family with three older brothers. The artist was constantly surrounded by music. With little resources, he found salvation in music. By nine years old, he released his first song “I Know” on Don Corleone’s 2005 Seasons Riddim written by his siblings Tippa and Ice and has continued to record countless dancehall bangers, from street anthems to crossover hits. As one of Jamaica’s most dynamic artists holding the torch for dancehall’s new generation, Teejay’s mastery of any style of singing or rapping is on full display as he presents the nine songs from his first EP, I AM CHIPPY, released Feb 2, 2024, via Warner Records. Titled after a name Teejay was given as a child, the release gives a more personal understanding of the artist. Co-executive produced by Grammy-winning and diamond-selling dancehall icon Shaggy, along with Teejay, Sharon Burke, and Steve Carless, the EP debuted on the Top 10 of the U.S. Billboard’s Reggae Album chart during its first week. The set features guest vocals from his son Jaydon, Nigerian superstar Davido, and fellow Jamaican dancehall artists like Skillibeng, Tommy Lee Sparta, Bayka & Quada. He landed the cover of Billboard in January, deemed the “future of dancehall,” and has been recently featured in Vogue, Rolling Stone, and BET.  His standout single “Drift” was a 2023 and 2024 chart topper and spawned a Tiktok dance craze created by Jamaican street dancer Gabi Don. The smash has amassed over 150 million global streams and one billion + TikTok views with Usain Bolt, Burna BoyCardi B, and Offset seen grooving to track. In the U.S., the song has peaked at #1 in NYC and #7 in Top 50 cities nationwide on Shazam and reached the Top 30 on Billboard’s Rhythmic Airplay chart and Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart.
