Dancehall is the youngest of the young, the beau of the ball, the energy gods love dancehall. Which is why we here at ZIF have been very thankful regarding our VP Records connection, there is nothing more pleasurable than having an opportunity to speak with the best reggae acts in the world, and get to check out their material first, let alone free. VP has pretty much everyone of note on their label, including the most successful cat of 2010 in the genre, Gyptian, powered by his smash single, “Hold Yuh”.
Gyptian’s captivating single “Hold You” has broken new ground; appearing on numerous Billboard Charts; number #51 on Hot R&B Singles Chart, #15 on Top 25 Hot Singles Chart and he continues to maintain the Number One position on Billboard’s Digital Reggae Songs Chart with the track being purchased over 40,000 times in 5 weeks. The track is pumping out of radios in the US and overseas. The single has almost doubled in the amount of spins it has received since last week. NPR will soon be featuring it as their Song Of The Day.
Today, ZIF makes this remix, our song of the day.
