D-Will, Iyara collab on track

Saturday, October 21, 2017

Dweet is the new single from Canada-based dancehall artiste D-Will.

The song is produced by iiimpala and was mixed and mastered locally at New Era studio.

This is the first dancehall song for D-Will, as his previous releases were culture songs.

“I decided to go hardcore on this song. I wanted to step out from just doing culture songs and bring something hardcore,” D-Will told Jamaica Observer.

Still reeling from the success of his previous release Don't Give In, there's been so much anticipation and pressure on D-Will to continue delivering the goods. Dweet also showcases up-and-coming dancehall artiste Iyara.

On the track, D-Will exudes confidence and a willingness to take on a challenge from his detractors.

Iyara's rhyming and delivery is an additional ingredient which makes Dweet a must-listen. He gives props to D-Will, letting him know that he is ready and willing to stand side-by-side with an artiste who he believes deserves the limelight next to him.

Born Deidrian Williams, D-Will is originally from Spanish Town. Music played an integral part of his upbringing. After relocating to Canada, he quickly earned a reputation for his songwriting efforts and lyrical competence.

One of his accomplishments was performing at the Ajax Caribbean Day Celebrations in Durham, Toronto in 2012. He later led the city's D-Will Stopping Gun Violence campaign. His song, Stop the Killing, was the theme for the 2014 initiative Pave the Way for Youth in Toronto.

Iyara's real name is Eric Sommers. Born in Portland, he made his stage debut performing alongside Bounty Killer in 2008 at Champions in Action.

Some of his recordings include Ghetto People a Suffa, A True Friend, Aiming to the Top, Month a Di Year, Easy Fi Get, and Never Kill a Friend.
