Jamaica’s disc jockey sensation ZJ Liquid, born Michael Brissett, ignited America’s urban entertainment program BET 106 and Park on Tuesday.
The ZJ was invited to be a guest DJ on 106 and Park and was quite elated to represent his country and to display his talent to the world. He played a mixture of dancehall, reggae, hip hop, soca and house music, which had the audience and hosts Bow Wow and Reality TV show celebrity Erica Mena, in a frenzy .
"It was a good look, great vibe and most of all a proud feeling to represent Jamaica and as a little youth from MoBay who knew that one day the hard work would pay off. We have more barriers to break; just a gwaan remain focused and do mi ting. Big up to all of the fans, Zip team, friends and family for the support. Bless up FootaHype, Seanizzle, Kaylia Williams, Richie Poo and my cousins who came to the show and supported me, and I have to give big thanks to Terrence Clayton and DJ Charlie B for the support at BET," said Liquid.
The renowned disc jockey also premiered his latest project, the Good Book rhythm, at the show. The rhythm features a host of talented artistes.
"The rhythm is basically slow and at the same time aggressive which gives off a real authentic dancehall sound which is drum and base driven. Didn’t use a lot of phrase because I wanted the artistes to be creative and not have similar melody," said Liquid.
Liquid went on a European tour in May. While in Europe, he shot a video for his song Put Yuh Body On Me, produced by DJ Dynamite from Hamburg, Germany. “The video will be out soon. Look out for Liquid all over for the summer and listen out for new songs for the summer as well,” he added.

Rihanna was in Brazil last weekend for the World Cup final at the Maracana Stadium in Brazil.
Pele, who is now 72 years old, help Brazil win three World Cup titles in 1958, 1962, and 1970.
Pele is widely regarded as the greatest soccer player of all time.
Rihanna is a big soccer fan and on Sunday she threw all her support behind the Germans who defeated Argentina 1-0 to win the cup.
Katy Perry is probably the last person you’d ever expect to do a reggae track, but it’s happened.
The “Roar” songstress was recently spotted in the studio with Major Lazer’s Diplo and Walshy Fire, where she was writing music during a recording session for Jamaican reggae artist Jessie Royal’s upcoming mixtape.
Walshy Fire opened up about the surprising collaboration in a new interview with Jah Blem Muzik to promote Royal’s mixtape.
“The funniest moment was having Katy Perry in the studio singing ‘woke up this morning feeling so blessed’ and writing a whole song to the Rootsman Riddim while Jesse did the dub for modern day Judas. Watching her catch that reggae vibe was the best part of recording”.
Still no word yet on whether the song is for Royal’s mixtape or if Katy crashed the recording session to write some material for her rumored Prism release, but it’s pretty interesting nonetheless.
