Beenie Man gets romantic on Want Some

Three-time Grammy nominated dancehall artiste Beenie Man is scheduled to release his latest single Want Some on Friday June 17.

The veteran dancehall kingpin who has the third most-charted entries on the Billboard Hot 100 charts (he has six entries), has teamed with Donsome Records and Roe Summerz for his latest offering.

“We got the opportunity to work with Beenie Man and we took advantage of it, leaving us with the song Want Some,” shared Summerz.

This is the second time that Donsome Records has worked with Beenie Man. Their first collaboration came with Gyal Gyal Gyal featuring Harry Toddler in 2018.

Want Some sees Beenie Man making the moves on a female that he admires and he goes all out to impress her with the hope of winning her over.

“It was Beenie Man who came up with the concept for the song, so we just ran with it,” Summerz added.

Beenie Man has had a decorated career in dancehall both locally and internationally. He has scored multiple entries on the Billboard Hot 100 including Dude (featuring Miss Thing), Who Am I, Girls Dem Sugar (with Mya), King of the Dancehall and Feel it Boy (with Janet Jackson).

He was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album three times, in 1999 for Many Moods of Moses and 2000 for The Doctor. He won in 2001 for Art and Life.

Dude and Who Am I have both been certified silver in the United Kingdom by the British Phonographic Industry for sales exceeding 200,000 units each

Artistes Blaze up Telephone Chalwa Riddim

Several reggae acts are featured on the Telephone Chalwa Riddim project which released digitally today Friday March 25th.

The project which according to JUNO-nominated producer Adrian ‘Donsome’ Hanson took four weeks to complete, features songs that are pro marijuana.

“Telephone Chalwa is a chalice pipe that Rastafarians use to smoke marijuana and this project is 100% marijuana driven. All of the songs by the artistes on this riddim express an appreciation for marijuana, hence the name of the project,” said Hanson.

The songs on the Telephone Chalwa rhythm are Telephone Chalwa by Turbulence, Marijuana Mi Want by Lutan Fyah, Bun Ganja 24/7 by Sizzla, Good Weed by Chezidek, Pass the Chalice Pipe by Anthony B, 12 months of Herbs by Perfect Giddimani and Marijuana by Jah Clarity.

Two instrumentals are also included for good measure, namely Telephone Chalwa Riddim and Telephone Chalwa Riddim (420 Live).

The singles by Turbulence and Lutan Fyah were both released on March 18th.

Hanson, who is originally from Clarendon, migrated to the United States more than ten years ago. Through the years, he has released several projects, including the various artistes compilation series Turn it Up Vol. 1, Freedom Sound, and Black Tears rhythm. Black Tears and Freedom Sound hit number four on the sales-driven US Current Reggae Albums chart last year.

He produced Ammoye’s Give it All which was last year nominated for Reggae Recording of the Year in the JUNO Awards, Canada’s equivalent to the US Grammy awards.

Billboard-charting American reggae band Big Mountain is among the international acts featured on the Freedom Sound rhythm project by Donsome Records.

The Freedom Sound rhythm is due for release on September 17.

The other international acts featured on the project are Marina Peralta from Brazil, Kings and Comrades from Philadelphia, Canada based vocalist Ammoye, Pressure Buss Pipe from the US Virgin Islands and King Tappa from New Jersey.

In a media release, producer Adrian ‘Donsome’ Hanson explained the inspiration behind the project.

“Freedom Sound is the follow up to our previous project the Black Tears rhythm. Creatively, we felt that after the tears we must free ourselves. So, Freedom Sound is all about feeling free to be yourself,” said Hanson.

He said the project took six months to complete.

“I wanted to have artistes from other side of the world who have been doing reggae with the same goal and fight that helped to birth reggae. Marina Peralta is from Brazil and she is one of the artistes who sings about the fight and struggles that we face daily.”

According to Hanson, it wasn’t difficult to get the artistes involved in the project.

“Anthony B, Lutan Fyah, Chezidek and Perfect Giddimani were on my last project, so it wasn’t hard to get them on this one. I wanted to step out the box and bring different vibes to this project, hence the reason I decided to work with artistes such as Grammy Award winner Mykal Rose, Big Mountain, Marina Peralta, Junior Kelly, Pressure Buss Pipe and Kings and Comrades. I always give a couple new artistes the chance to showcase their talent, so King Tappa reach out to me at the right time and I’m really proud of his track.”

The first three singles, Likes of Jah by Pressure Buss Pipe, want to be Free by Anthony B, and Good People (Johnny Good) by Chezidek and Perfect Giddimani will released digitally today Friday September 10. The full project is to be released on September 17.

The other tracks featured on the Freedom Sound rhythm are Good People by Chezidek, Stop and Smell the Roses by Ammoye, Rise to the Top by Kings and Comrades, Love Spell by King Tappa, No More Lies by Junior Kelly, I Give You Love by Mykal Rose, Freedom Fighters by Marina Peralta, Hear that Sound by Big Mountain, Fade Away by Lutan Fyah and Greatest by Richie Spice.

Asked what Fakoly brought to the remix, Hanson said “Tiken Jah Fakoly is the kind of artiste that has been singing and fighting for the same cause like what we been defending. So, he helped strengthen the massage and with his fanbase worldwide, I know it will get across to different audiences.”
