On Monday, Vybz Kartel or his associates uploaded the original version of “Loodi” to his Vevo channel on YouTube and left a message saying “My song was never a collaboration!” Speaking with OnStage TV, Romeich explains that he was approached by the producer of the song Elvis Redwood to do a collaboration with a female artist and he decided on his new artist Shenseea. Romeich also said that his team never tell anyone that Shenseea wrote the song, because she only added a couple lines to the original version.
“He sent the song and he said Romeich this is what I want, ‘the chorus will remain the same but I need Shenseea to do the verses in a female version using as much lyrics as possible’,” Romeich said. “At no time did I tell anybody that we write we own song, we flip it in a female version because the song was done as a man.”
Romeich also revealed that Elvis had a falling out with Vybz Kartel at the time that they did the song, but he had nothing to do with that. He said that they were getting a lot of resistance from folks aligned to Vybz Kartel before putting out the song and the music video last year November. He also gave the incarcerated deejay a lot of praise calling him one of the baddest artists in dancehall.
“I did not know at the time that Elvis and Kartel wasn’t in a good friendship or not,” he said. “But at the end of the day I am going to be real to Jamaica, ‘my artist a get a song with Vybz Kartel I am going to take it.’ Vybz Kartel is one of the baddest if not the baddest dancehall artist and my young artist that the world don’t see yet get a collab I am going to take it.”
