Award-winning Montreal, QC-based Jamhaitian has unveiled his new single, “You So Fly”.
“This song is about describing and showcasing the true beauty of a woman,” Jamhaitian swoons of the song’s universal muse. “Especially the one you find so incredibly beautiful and wonderful to your eyes; her style, her elegance, her intellect…
It’s about the one who fits the true meaning of that person being your ‘one and only.’”
Speaking of ‘one and only,’ Montreal’s Renald Jean-Denis Boyd is known for bringing an inimitable uniqueness and dynamically fresh sound to the table. Honouring mother and father’s heritages — Jamaican and Haitian — Jamhaitian is on a mission to lead when it comes to the genre of New World and creates his signature sound from the likes of reggae, urban, pop, and tropical with English, French, Patois, and Haitian Creole.

Care to introduce yourself to our readers? Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
Hi, my name is Jamhaitian aka the most Handsome Man in the World, hahaha. I’m from Montreal, Quebec, Canada but my origins are from the beautiful countries of Jamaica and Haiti.
My music is defined as being very versatile no matter the genre I choose to create in. It is fueled with an intense but lovely fire energy, that makes you wanna move, dance, or just wanna fall in love with. My writing style is like depicting and bringing you through all situations and adventures of life. I would say my music can be very classy and polished. But at times you need to tap into the bad guy when needed. Everyone eventually falls in love with the bad guy. Every emotion you can think of I try to make a song too. It’s impossible for someone to always be happy it isn’t normal. You need to also talk about fun, sex, sadness, motivation, ambition, etc. I write not just for the moment as most do. I write to make my music timeless.
How are you keeping creative without shows?
Even though Covid has been a real game-changer in our lives. It has enabled me to dig deep within myself and reset. Now I have time to try new things, and to explore more my creative process. Learn more about techniques instead of just winging it. Now taking it as seriously as it can be since music is and will always be apart of me. Even being able to practice movements and show sets while we are confined. Once we are released from this confinement I will be more ready than ever. Show you so much more than what I am known for. Make my live show performance undeniable.
What are you spending your time on?
Right now, mainly as we would say in our industry, stacking up my singles. Having an array of music ready to release. Planning strategically when to release them. Have my team come with a plan for each of them. From my management team at X.Y New Era Management to coordinate everything properly with my label at We Are Royalty Records.
Once everything is set in place, send the songs to my distribution at Emergence Music Distribution. Which has done a great job distributing my music every time. Check them out and tell them I sent you.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
It would be simple, You So Fly. The reason is there’s always that one person in everyone’s world. Where you look at them and wonder, wow you are so beautiful. I love your style, I love everything about you. From your head all the way down to your toes. You are either in a relationship with that person or would do anything to be in one with them. You think about them all the time, you would protect that person and be there for them anytime. Care and cherish them which represents my song You So Fly.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
I can’t say I have a current favorite, it depends on my mood. There are just too many great talents in our great beautiful country of Canada. Shout out all Canadians in every genre putting out great music every time. Releasing their creativity to the world and putting in that work. I salute every single one of you, from every genre of music a Canadian is making. I love it, Oh Canada.
