‘One By One’ – Laza Morgan Feat. Mavado – #1 Song In Jamaica, Miami & NYC

US based Laza Morgan, a singjay and rapper whose raspy, rhythmic ‘DJ’ style flows on his new single “One By One” featuring Mavado is blazing hot in three of the biggest markets for reggae, namely Kingston, Miami and New York. He currently holds the number one slot on the ER TV chart on TVJ in Jamaica, the Miami Top Ten Charts in Florida and the Weekly Star Top Ten chart in New York.

The track, produced by Bunetta and Frank E, is a hypnotic love song that is blazing dance floors and radio airwaves afire with its compelling charm.

“I am very excited about the song,” Laza beams confidently of One by One. “The song represents a fresh voice bringing back the message of love to reggae. This song is also a prelude to several others on the album that speak to the power of love, positive vibes, fun times and just simply enjoying the wonderful gift of life. This song also defines my pop reggae style on the album. There are no cultural barriers to impede the universal enjoyment of this album.”

Laza recently returned for a successful trip to Jamaica that saw him performing at Reggae Sumfest on Dancehall Night with Mavado and a solo set on International Night 11. Prior to Sumfest, Laza performed with his dad, veteran reggae hitmaker Denroy Morgan at a special “Father & Son” concert at Studio 38 in New Kingston that won rave reviews.

Stateside, he is keeping a hectic performing schedule and is one of the top reggae acts confirmed to perform in NY over the Labor Day weekend.

Set to drop in late 2011, Laza’s debut album features a production and cowriting from a small roster led by Julian Bunetta (Flo Rida, Leona Lewis, Boyz II Men) and DJ Frank E (Eminem, Kanye West, Flo Rida, Enrique Iglesias) and promises to signify a refreshing and exciting new chapter in the evolution of Reggae music.

Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, Laza was literally raised in a musical cradle. He was heavily influenced by the Reggae music of his household and the records made by his father, Jamaican music legend and hit-maker Denroy Morgan, who stormed his way to American radio in the early 1980s with his club anthem “I’ll Do Anything for You”. With his family’s strong Jamaican roots as a driving inspiration, and frequent trips to Kingston and St.Thomas as a youth, it didn’t take long for Laza to completely embrace the magical world of reggae. His experiences in Springfield and Brooklyn influenced him heavily too, as he began incorporating hip-hop, R & B and pop into his musical lexicon. By the time he graduated from High School, he had formed a band, LMS, with 2 of his siblings, and together they toured the world playing dates across Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and the Caribbean, with Morgan Heritage, an internationally recognized roots Reggae band founded by his father and several of his other 28 siblings.

2010 proved to be the culmination of many years of hard work that Laza has put into his craft. After signing with Elektra records in February, Laza was featured on British pop sensation Alexandra Burke’s hit single “Start Without You” which topped the UK and European singles charts in September. He was also featured on Flo Rida’s hit single ’21’ from the album “The Only One.” His forthcoming Elektra debut has already yielded a single, This Girl that was featured in Disney’s feature film Step Up 3D and its smash soundtrack. This Girl has generated over seven million hits on YouTube and has created a buzz that spans the globe.

Laza continues to work hard in preparation of what lies ahead. He continues to enjoy his love for creating and performing music and is excited by the opportunities he will have as it circulates. He hopes that in the near future his music will empower him with a platform to help the less fortunate youth across the Jamaican Diaspora.

Catch Laza in NY this weekend as he performs at a numbers of the Labor Day weekend festivities. You may just see him on stage with Mavado at Reggae Rhythm & Blues in Queens on Sunday.
