Contributed Mr Easy
An unmistakable voice and a dancehall classic, in the form of ‘Drive Me Crazy’ are what make Mr Easy a staple in dancehall music.
The artiste, who got his initial exposure in music at a time when dancehall was in its formative years, is now back with a new single titled Bashment Gal.
The single, produced by Ricky Blaze, is described as a ‘catchy, feel-good song’ that has all the ingredients to become another hit for Easy.
The Jay Will-directed video for the single, which was launched on January 30 on Onstage, is currently making its rounds on various television platforms.
Shot in Kingston, the song adequately depicts the title, a Bashment Gal. Making a cameo in the video is flamboyant DJ Tanto Blacks, who showed off his acting skills. Now viewable on YouTube, the video and the single – currently available on iTunes – forms the backdrop of Mr Easy’s new campaign in music.
“You know what I’ve realised on my journey that this music has taken me on? There is a whole world of people, ranging between the ages of 25 to 55, who want to hear and feel the ’90s type of dancehall. When I question them on what they mean, they simply answer: ‘The beat and that feel-good vibe that made you want to dance;’ and that is exactly what I am bringing back with this project,” he told THE STAR.
