He released his latest single in the summer of this year and already, Real Know Real is dominating international charts worldwide.

The song is number one on the Karma Radio charts in the United Kingdom and has been in that position for the last eight weeks.

D Major told The Gleaner he was pleased with the overwhelming response the single had been receiving.

"I feel great! Mi just a gwaan put in the work. Mi definitely nah get caught up in certain things and trends. I'm always gonna stay true to myself and make sure that I continue to put in the hard work," he said.

Since its release, Real Know Real has also been gaining traction on local airwaves.

"There is also an overwhelming response to the song on the radio, and it's also really 'getting a strength' from sound-system selectors. It's a good look," D Major added.

There are also plans to release a follow-up titled Straight and Narrow before the end of the year.

"The follow-up will be more uptempo and have more of a dancehall vibe, but it will have the same street sound that fans can appreciate and love," D Major said.

Real Know Real also enjoyed heavy rotation on Choice FM, which recently changed its name to Capital XTRA. The track premiered at No. 17 on its reggae chart.

"I'm a huge track and field fan, so I want to represent Jamaica with my music just as how the athletes represent Jamaica," D Major said.
