XKhraig Talks Breakthrough In Gambia With ‘I Think She’s Perfect’ – DancehallMag

Rebel Nation | September 22, 2021


US-based reggae singjay Alton G. Campbell, better known by his stage name XKhraig (XK), is riding a wave of success as his latest single, ‘I Think She’s Perfect’ soared to number one on the iTunes Reggae Chart this week and also took over the number one spot on the Gambia Top 25 song chart on iTunes.

“Last year, a producer in Philadelphia gave me the rhythm and I wrote the song, ‘I Think You’re Perfect’ but he failed to put it out. I believed in the song, so I got inspiration and teamed up with producer Michael ‘Angel’ Adams and got a beat and we dealt with it and it’s a huge success in Africa, maybe because of the mash-up of Swahili, patois, Hebrew and English…producer Angel is a genius,” he said.

The song was released on the Dubplate Express label on May 30th. The song is also being promoted by XK’s manager, Adrian ‘Johno’ Hillary.

Hailing from the rough streets of Constitution Hill, St Andrew in Jamaica, XK was introduced to music at an early age by family members who influenced him to join the church choir.

According to him, as the years went by he developed an endearment for singing and the art of writing, revealing that his parents ensured education was at the forefront of his development.

XK attended the Ardenne High School and later Mico Evening College in Kingston, Jamaica, where he studied Mathematics and Social Biology.

“If not for music, I would have pursued a career as a mathematician or an educational psychologist,” he explained.

Using real life experiences in his music and lyrics, XK holds a clear edge over other artistes who don’t have his authenticity or street credibility. Having lived through many hardships growing up, he now taps into his music to narrate those stories and bring them to life.

Some of his popular songs are: Suzie, Hard Life, Duggu Duggu, Top Braff and Stay Fly ft Bling Ras.

His music is making major strides, popping up on radio playlists in the Gambia.

“The year 2021 has been great so far,” he said.
