BIGGA 5 is generating a great buzz with his latest single Day One .

“The Day One single is positive music, message-oriented music that can play anywhere and at any time of day because it is about a real-life situation that is very personal to me, and many people can relate to betrayal from friends and those closest to you. Radio ah play it, the streets ah say it shot, and selector Foota Hype endorse it,” said Bigga 5.

The single, released on the Trinidad-based Universal Stars label early this year, is available for distribution on iTunes and other download platforms.

An accompanying video for Day One was released two weeks ago.

Bigga 5 (given name Phillip Jackson) was born on April 16, 1995. He grew up in Kitson Town and attended Tacius Golding High and Children First Academy.

He experimented with rap music, showing up on a well-received cameo on the Jonnah single, Money ah De Topic.

“The Money ah de Topic video and single did a lot for me. I did several performances all over and people were really into it, mi get a great response,” he said.

After that, Bigga 5 began to experiment more with dancehall music.

“I do songs based on my experiences, things I have personally been through, and what I see around me in Jamaica. The struggle is real, mi face it and nuff other youths ah face it, so I keep my music as real as possible so they can be entertained and learn something at the same time,” he said.

His other singles include Time Ah Di Master and Prime Time.
