Dancehall King Beenie Man has creates history in the world of dancehall with his new project.
Beenie Man career went on a high this year with several hit singles in rotation and his huge collaboration with Future Fambo, Rum & Redbull, which is arguably this year’s dancehall anthem.
The Doc, as he is popularly called, new project dubbed Beenie Man and Friends will see the dancehall star collaborating with 8 other dancehall artists on one hot dancehall riddim.
The project will feature artists the likes of Khago, D’Angel, Ding Dong, Fambo, Deva Bratt, Kantana, Versatile, Cee Gee and Laden.
Weighing in on the project, Beenie said no other artists have done something like this before.
“No other artiste in the business has ever tried anything like this before. I am writing, arranging and co-producing every song on the riddim, and I am also performing on every song on the riddim,” a proud Beenie Man said. “The only thing I haven’t done is build the riddim, which was done by Danny Browne.”
“It is something I had always wanted to do, but I just didn’t have the courage to do it at the time. So I just sat down and did it and it all came together. Right now, ah MD time now, Gaza done gone across the world already, now ah MD time.”
Beenie Man also said he plans to shoot a video medley for the series Beenie Man and Friends.
“I plan to shoot a video for the single called Time of My Life with D’Angel, and a medley video with all the others, I already have the concept in my head; it is going to be sic.”
Beenie also said he tried to enlist former rival now turn friend, Bounty Killer, and also other members of the Killer led Alliance to come in on the project, however, the efforts are proving to be futile.
“Ah mi friend still, but is too much drama to get him to actually voice. Serani voice already, Mavado said he will voice, but I cannot wait on them. In fact, it is up to Bounty, Elephant and Kartel if they want to be on it, mi reach out to them already.”
The Release date for the project is not yet known.
