Established Jamaican actor Johnoy ‘TV Boss’ Williams made his music production debut with the beat ‘Expectation’.
“This idea for this riddim came about at a time when my life had a lot of expectations, when my son was just born, when I had just moved to America. It was a time when I was thinking about my next move in life. and all the songs in the riddim answered those questions. They all captured the expectations, so it all went from there,” he explained. “With this riddim, we make good music, sentimental music that heals people’s crying.”
The connection between Williams and dancehall artist Munga Honorable, who performs the title track of the beat, was established several years ago, making the collaboration a seamless effort.
“I had already written my lyrics and melody before I heard the riddim, thus making the recording process quite short,” Munga Honorable said. “I know I have a hit song on the riddim. I’m proud of the move TV Boss has made.”
Williams is known for his acting roles in the Ity and Fancy Cat Show as well as in the American artist Nick Cannon king of the dance hall film. He took his first steps into production when he officially launched his label, TV Boss Entertainment, in January. It was a New Year’s resolution and a birthday present for himself.
“It took me a long time, hanging out with artists, being in studios, having people encouraging me to express a riddim. But it was when my son was born that I decided he was time to do a crossover. When I got the riddim, I sent it to Munga and he liked it, so it was a trial run from there,” Williams said.
