JAMAICAN singer Trudy (TruDiva) may have found a hit with her dance single Party All Night (Booty Song), which is said to be creating a stir on local and foreign radio outlets.
So infectious is the song that another Jamaican, dancehall’s Elephant Man, sampled it in his inimitable style. The remix claim industry insiders, have been enjoying hearty airplay in Jamaica, the wider Caribbean and the USA.
With additional remixes by actress and rapper Filly Brown and Latino singer Medicine Girl, the song’s popularity is crossing cultural and language barriers.
The dance song is expected to get heavy rotation on both the Pocos Pero Locos and Subelo radio networks, which include 30 radio stations in major US cities such as New York, Chicago, Miami, and San Antonio.
Pocos Pero Locos’ Khool Aid says: “The song crosses boundaries, cultures and countries and connects with the world in a language that everyone can relate to — dance.”
As Party All Night (Booty Song) picks up momentum, Trudy’s version will inspire an open dance competition at the Limelight Nightclub in Half-Way-Tree on July 15.
The top two dancers or dance groups showcasing the best choreographed or freestyle routine to the song will have a “dance off” on the main stage of Reggae Sumfest on July 23. The winner will be featured in an upcoming video of the song. There will also be cash awards.
Trudy, who will be performing on Reggae Sumfest, said she anxiously awaits the day when the dancers will strut their stuff.
“I can’t wait (to) perform on the Sumfest stage… seeing the best dancers in Jamaica choreograph a routine to my song,” she beamed.
Trudy’s remix of Party All Night (Booty Song) was produced by Jamaican hit maker Christopher Birch. Her next project, Getaway, is set to be released soon.
