This Is My Song Of The Week

Yaani this song (No Second Dance) has been keeping me going for the past one week. Christopher Martin has to be one of the most promising reggae artists out there today...DJ Full Stop do you agree?

No Second Dance (New Chapter Riddim) - Christopher Martin

A star on the rise. Christopher Martin, the talented singer/performer from Back Pasture in St. Catherine who shot to instant fame and recognition shortly after winning the coveted Digicel Rising Stars title in 2005, is fast becoming one of the most sought after performers on the Jamaican music landscape.

With a slate of singles permeating radio and the Jamaican music charts including “Giving It” and “Jamaican Girls,” Christopher created history when he became the first Digicel Rising Stars alumni to score a hit single on any chart in Jamaica.

Christopher's growth as an artiste and an individual ever since he shot onto the scene in 2005 is quite evident. His vocal chops have improved drastically, he is now under the guidance of the Big Yard label which is one of the most prolific musical entities in Jamaica, and he has gained a lot of respect from his peers.

Martin was born on Valentine's Day in 1987 to parents Cleveland and Maxine Martin. Christopher graduated from high school in 2003. After winning the Digicel Rising Stars competition, Martin participated in Digicel's Christmas promotions in 2005. His debut single “Love is all We Need” formed part of the promotional campaign.

Martin's subsequent releases included Conscience, Christmas in Jamdown featuring the Katalys Crew, My Love for You, Take My Wings, Tonight, Giving It, and Jamaican Girls. He has worked with a number of top producers in the reggae/dancehall arena including Robert Livingston (Big Yard), Arif Cooper, Shane Brown and Christopher Birch.

Martin lists singing, reading, socializing and baking among his hobbies. His website which can be seen by logging on to is up and running. His fans can interact with him via that medium. Very soon, a fan club will be officially launched where fans can get closer to him.
