Tommy Lee Sparta’s new EP New Creator has debut at No. 9 on the Billboard Reggae chart.
The EP was released on January 5th under Ricardo Gowe Records and has been doing well on iTunes. While that is an impressive achievement for the Guzu Musiq deejay, the sales figures paint a different picture. The project sold only 63 copies in its first week of release. Tommy Lee Sparta thank his fans for their support on IG despite the low sales numbers.
“New creator ep #9 on #billboard reggae charts #godisgood Spartans we all mek this possible y’all not my fan we family,” he wrote. Elsewhere on the chart, you will find Chronixx debut album Chronology at No. 8, SOJA’s album Poetry In Motion is at No. 6, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley‘s Stony Hill is at No. 4, while the top spot is being held by American band The Green.
Tommy Lee Sparta is currently working on his upcoming debut album, due in April of this year. The project will be the first off his multi-album deal with Sean Kingston’s label Time Is Money Entertainment. Chronixx and Damian Marley are currently battling with three other nominees this year for Best Reggae Album at the upcoming Grammy Awards. A rep for Sparta told us that he hopes to get a nomination next year for his upcoming album.
Aside from working on his new album, Tommy Lee Sparta is gearing up for some upcoming shows in Europe and the wider Caribbean. Last year was a big year for the former Gaza deejay who dominated the airwaves with his music after going back to his Gothic dancehall roots. He also scored some points in the streets for his diss tracks aimed at top-flight deejays Alkaline and Mavado. If you haven’t got a copy as yet, you can get Tommy Lee’s new EP on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.
Mr. Vegas has shared his reaction to Tommy Lee Sparta’s statement on the recent flooding in Montego Bay.
Last week, heavy rain in Jamaica’s second city left down town Montego Bay and some surrounding areas flooded and millions of dollars in damages to property and infrastructure. Tommy Lee Sparta who is one of the most recognized artists from the area shared video footage and photos on Instagram showing the aftermath.
Montego Bay unno see that god a show unno a sign, the killing need to stop take this as a warning plz we need to come together n put a stop against crime n violence god don’t like wah gwan,” the Guzu Musiq deejay said. He also got some support for his statement from fellow dancehall artists like Bounty Killer and Razor B. Earlier this year he also spoke out against crime that has been crippling the city during a performance at Margueritaville.

Mr. Vegas begs to differ with Tommy Lee saying that judgement day is not here as yet. “God vex wid the whole world. So how comes Parliament and their members that has implemented the ‘one world order system’ nuh flood out,” the dancehall veteran said. “Day of Judgement nuh come yet,” he said. “Matthew 24:6 says ‘You will hear of wars and rumours of wars but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.”
The cut arrives only a few weeks after the collaboration was previewed. The single pays homage to the popular Bridges sandals and Clarks Deserts boots which are both popular in dancehall culture. The cut was directed by RD Studios and produced jointly by Romeich Entertainment and Tommy Lee’s label Guzu Musiq.

Shenseea made some major breakthrough in dancehall this year following the success of her collaborative single with Vybz Kartel, “Loodi.” The Mobay deejay is also having a great year with a handful of hits as he continues to push his gothic dancehall movement. The formula has been working great for him since his Gaza days so why change it now. Watch the official video for “Bridget’s & Desert (Pon Foot)” below.
