Within two days of being released, the song is already trending at number five on YouTube, and on Buju’s YouTube page, it already has more than 200,000 views. And while some persons have suggested that Buju sound similar to Cham in the Dave Kelly-produced track, the response to Trust has been very positive.

“Gargamel is back with the real dancehall,” one listener said on YouTube. Another added: “Sick, crazy, mad track. Buju is back.”

In addition to being posted on several blogs, American producer DJ Khaled also shared a video of himself vibing to the Buju track. The post has been viewed more than 82,000 times and it has received more than 17,000 likes.
