Vybz Kartel debuts his new single “Miss Your Call (Euphoria Remix).”
The original version of the single was released earlier this year as a bit of a dedication to his baby mama “Tanesha “Shorty” Johnson. “Wa a gwaan Shorty, Am so sorry, say mi miss your call, And I promise you, that I’ll always be there, I don’t want to miss a thing, I can’t get enough of your life,” Kartel sings over a techno beat produced by South Trade Records and High Stakes Records.
Vybz Kartel already has his fans on high alert for five new singles coming this month, but it’s a preview of his new single “One Box” that is stirring up some controversies. Some dancehall fans think that the single is promoting domestic violence against women. But it’s still too early to make a solid judgment with only a short snippet of the song released. The full version of the song will be released in January.
Kartel, who is currently in prison for murder, is awaiting his appeal trial in July next year, after being pushed back from February. The dancehall star maintained his innocence and is confident that the appeal court will vindicate him.
Vybz Kartel will be meeting his second daughter for the first time.
Since around last year summer, there have been rumors claiming that Vybz Kartel has a second daughter that he has never met. A female posted a video on social media showing off the toddler while proclaiming that the incarcerated deejay is the little girl’s father. At the time Kartel denied the allegations and his common-law wife Shorty refuted the claims. Turns out the female wasn’t lying and now the dancehall star is stepping up to the plate of fatherhood once again.
Vybz Kartel confirmed on Instagram earlier this week that he will be meeting his daughter for the first time ever. “My 2nd daughter.. Never met before.. Hope fi see yuh soon,” he wrote. Sources inside the Gaza told Dancehall HipHop today that he has approved a prison visit for the little girl and her mother to visit him at GP at a date in the near future. “Addi (Vybz Kartel) always take fatherhood very serious, this man love all of his kids equally it doesn’t matter who are their mother,” sources told us.
We’re also told that Kartel is planning to be more involved in his daughter’s life and fully take care of her just like his other four kids. Vybz Kartel currently has three sons with Tanesha “Shorty” Johnson and another daughter with another female.

Kartel, born Adidja Palmer is currently waiting on his appeal trial set for February next year in the Jamaica Appeal Court. That will likely be his final chance of securing his freedom following a controversial 2014 murder conviction in the Home Circuit Court.

The incarcerated deejay released the song last week and it’s already one of the top trending singles in dancehall. The single was produced by Vybz Kartel Muzik and features the deejay taking shots at his baby mama while hinting that she cheated on him. “Gyal pack up har things, f*ck you / Talk bout me a stale news (ouuu) / Gwan then but don’t come back when you hear Worlboss got juice (ouuu) / Ungrateful b*tch tododooo (ouuu) / Adianna and Mommy me choose (ouuu),” Kartel deejay.
Our ever so reliable sources inside the Gaza confirmed with Dancehall HipHop that there is a rift going on between Vybz Kartel and Shorty.

In one line, Vybz Kartel sings “Adianna and Mommy me choose.” Adianna is the name of Vybz Kartel daughter and she was there with his mom at his last family visit in August. Kartel even posted a photo of himself and his daughter on his Instagram account. Earlier this year, Kartel preview a new single titled “I’m So Sorry” in dedication to Shorty where he praises her for sticking by him during his murder trial and subsequent prison sentence.
