Ne-Yo’s remix version to Mavado’s hit single “I Know You Want Me” could be the biggest dancehall song of 2011.
The dancehall/R&B single produced by Troyton Hinds is getting extensive airplay locally and overseas.
Troyton has confirmed that discussions are now underway for a video for the single.
“The song has been doing phenomenally well and this video would only serve to raise the profile of the Jamaican music industry. It’s really great that international acts are taking an interest in working more frequently with Jamaican artistes and producers. I hope this leads to bigger things for our industry players.”
“The reviews have been very positive so far. It’s also being spun heavily on airwaves across the Diaspora including New York’s Hot 97 and Power 105, Miami’s 99 Jams and UK’s BBC Radio1Extra. People really like how the artistes ‘vibed’ on the song. We have a good partnership with Ne-Yo’s camp and this really was a fantastic project for us to collaborate.”
The video is likely to be shot in New York and could make its way to MTV and BET.
The single is now available on iTune and Amazon.
