Collab with Snoop Long Time in the Making

Some people might be surprised to see Johnson collaborating with a rap game legend like Snoop on a track, but long-time fans of both have been waiting for this for what feels like forever.

Johnson has always been heavily involved and influenced in the reggae, pop dancehall kind of music scene – but has never been nervous about stepping out of his comfort zone, flexing a little bit, and pulling in artists and inspiration from all different genres of music.

The relationship between Johnson and Snoop Dogg started back in 2013. Johnson was introduced to the rap superstar in Los Angeles and immediately went to work with him. The two have a lot in common creatively and were able to blend their sounds when Snoop was hosting parties and DJing in the Hollywood Hills and throughout Anaheim.

 It may have taken a while for the two to get together on a track, but you don’t put this kind of collab together unless there’s a lot of mutual respect. Snoop is excited and energized by everything Johnson brings to the table with “Pon Fire”.

Who is Matt U Johnson?

Johnson, born and raised on Staten Island with Jamaican Roots, has been living his musical career dreams since he was a young kid.

Even after his family moved from New York to El Paso in 2012, he kept developing his signature sound, later moving to England to pursue new career opportunities there. Breakthroughs followed (including work with Snoop in 2013), with Johnson opening for Jazz Cartier.

El Paso kept calling Johnson back, and now he makes the city his full-time home and base of operations. You can find him working with local musicians, artists, and producers all the time, all while promoting and performing his past discography and new tracks that he hasn’t released to wider audiences just yet.

Johnson is working on a new major album release, continuing to refine his sound and style, and wants to collaborate with more artists. This is an exciting new talent, not content with just a couple of hits. This is an artist that wants to make a mark in the industry.

It’s hard to imagine “Pon Fire” not having a significant impact in helping to make that happen.
