JAVADA DEEJAY | LYRICIST | PERFORMER

BIG VOICE, commanding stage presence, and a warm personality- these are traits that come to mind when fans describe Javada. This dynamic deejay, songwriter, and upcoming dancehall legend's work speaks for itself; so much that, Spanish superstar singer, Enrique Iglesias, requested and featured Javada on the 2016 Billboard charting, 'Spanglish' remix of his song, Duele El Corazón (The Heart Aches).

Born Nevada Myrie, Javada grew up in East Kingston, Jamaica. He spent much of his time listening to and emulating his favourite deejays Bounty Killa, Shabba Ranks, Terror Fabulous and Buju Banton. Consequently, Javada learnt his impressive vocal and performing skills, and was unknowingly preparing for his future career in music; but it remained only a hobby for many years.

Javada is motivated by the happiness he feels when recreating and sharing the never-ending joy that music brings to all; something that he thanks his grandmother, ‘Ms. Rob’, for teaching him as a child. She would always play music and invite Javada to dance with her whenever she faced stressful situations. She also always encouraged his interest in music, and would ensure his family members did the same. Though Ms. Rob unfortunately passed away before she could see her grandson on the world stage, her lessons and memories remain with him as a constant reminder of his purpose.

Javada features on Enrique Iglesias' Billboard charting song, Duele El Corazon.

In 2014, Javada decided to “take music seriously”, and so released his first official project; a mixtape, entitled Rude and Smooth. The name is indicative of the raunchy and romantic mix of songs the project contains. Rude and Smooth has played a key role in establishing Javada as a unique asset to dancehall, and Jamaican music overall. It shows Javada’s versatility as a deejay and writer, as well as his appreciation for a range of musical genres. Easy Does It (featuring Nicky B), Special Delivery and Came My Way (featuring Chevaughn) resonated especially well with listeners, and enjoyed extensive airplay on a number of Jamaica’s top radio stations. The song entitled, Gyal Dem Ready gained traction in South and Central America, and was also the song that laid the foundation for the collaboration with Enrique Iglesias.

Javada is a former member of dancehall star, Konshens’, Subkonshus Music Group label, and during that time, performed on major stages in Europe, Africa, USA, and The Caribbean, as the artiste’s opening act. He also recorded and released a number of songs with Konshens, most notably, Say Di Word (ZJ Liquid, H2O Records), and the previously mentioned Gyal Dem Ready.

In 2015, after two years with the label, Javada decided continue his solo career independently. Since then, he has released a number of singles, including Hold On, Spliff and Tea, After the Touch (Frankie Music), Hooked On You- featuring Voicemail (JusEasy Productions) and On and On (ZJ Chrome, CR203 Media). In 2016, Javada’s music began to reach international airwaves once again, with the single, Wake Up Beside You, on the Cold Heart Riddim (Robert Livingston, Scikron Entertainment). The song has quickly become a regular choice on radio, club and sound systems playlists in several African countries and in the African Diaspora in the USA. Javada’s follow up and most recent single, In Deh (Dre Day Productions) is on the same trajectory, receiving regular air and club play within the African Music market and also on local stations, including Jamaica’s “Hit Music Station”- Fyah 105 FM.

Javada’s future goals are simple: to work hard, stay focused and humble, make timeless music and reach more and more fans… wherever they will listen. With the assistance of a team that sees his vision as its own, he intends to accomplish them. Armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience, as well as a keen sense of self and an unyielding desire to succeed, Javada is well on his way to the top.
