Mavado – “Settle Down” | Music Video


We brought you the audio (alongside Daniel Bedingfield on the same riddim) back in August, now it’s time for the visuals to the “Gully Gad” Mavado’s latest floor-filling, gal-whiner “Settle Down”. Despite it’s setting on the summery-sounding “Overproof” riddim, “Settle Down” (link to purchase) missed the highly-competitive summer holiday season, however, the heat on this ridiculously infectious banger is strong (1million+ YouTube hits in 2 months with just specialist radio, word of mouth and club play for promotion), so be prepared for a summery winter/Fall, and spring 2012, and summer…

“Your lifestyle it no shady/ And you no take a bag of man like the navy” = pull up!!!

Am I the only one that loved seeing a regular-sized, pretty girl-next-door, dressed normally playing the lead role? And they say dancehall is just (se)X-rated. Think this is the prelude to “Delilah”, but also be on the look out for Laza Morgan’s “One By One” which Mavado features on. 2012 nuh good again.

UKers can catch him touring the UK alongside Chipmunk and Stylo G in December (tickets here)
