Mr Vegas has the Midas touch when it comes to producing hit songs. Ever since he bombarded his way to the top in 1997 with \'Heads High\' and \'Nike Air\' he has never looked back.
He has maintained a steady presence on the music scene with chart toppers such as \'Hot Wuk\' which dominated all three major charts in Jamaica and also enjoyed a huge presence in both New York and South Florida charts. In 1997 Mr Vegas released his debut album \'Heads High\' (Greensleeves Records). It displayed his creativity and versatility in songs such as \'Jacket\', \'Sweet Pineapple\' and \'Everywhere I Go\'. To top it off, it earned Mr Vegas a British Music of Black Origin (MOBO) award as Best Reggae Artist, thus effectively establishing his fan base beyond the Jamaican dancehall. The title track off the album \'Heads High\' was his biggest selling single ever and also enjoyed huge rotation on mainstream television MTV.
The success of his first album was no fluke - Mr Vegas followed up with his ‘sophomore’ album (Greensleeves Records), \'Damn Right\'. Laced with a strong R&B and hip-hop flavour on songs such as \'Girls Time\' and \'She\'s A Ho\' and the very hot \'Hot Gal Today\' (a combination with Sean Paul), the album was a big success. The track \'Hot Gal Today\' song was voted one of the all time great combinations by Vibe Magazine.
After his move to the Los Angeles-based independent label Delicious Vinyl Mr Vegas released his third CD \'Pull Up\'. The title track which was recorded on Scatta Burrell\'s hugely popular Coolie Dance riddim entered the Billboard Charts and catapulted Mr Vegas into worldwide attention. Other tracks on the album that helped in giving Mr Vegas international attention were \'Pull Up\' and \'Tamale\'.
Last year Mr Vegas recorded and released the very sizzling album \'Constant Spring\' named after the title track; the lead single topped all the major charts in Jamaica boosted by a very creative video that immediately grabbed the interest of the dancehall community.
In between putting out albums Mr Vegas has appeared on all the major shows year after year. Among them are Sting, Reggae Sunfest, Fully Loaded and last year he totally devastated at the return of Reggae Sunsplash. As one article said ‘This Talent has blasted his way through the Caribbean, went on to create havoc in Europe and totally massacred the States!’
Mr. Vegas will be releasing his next album \"Hot It Up\" distributed by Delicious Vinyl/Fontana in the USA, Five Man Army in Japan and Cargo throughout selecy countries in Europe. Among the tracks that will be included are \'Tek Whey Yuhself\', \'Hot Wuk\', \'Lean Wid It\',\'Nuh Friend From Dem\' and \'Do You Know\'.
