Jamaican dancehall superstar Busy Signal continues his hot streak this summer with the release of “Bruk Dung Di Bed,” the lead single off the brand new Tri-Circle Riddim EP (via Nuh Rush Records / Tuff Gong International).
The official video, directed by Dameon Gayle and released on Busy Signal’s YouTube channel, finds Busy surrounded by a bevy of beautiful females at a Miami high-rise. They ride a packed elevator up to a private penthouse suite, where our dancehall hero confidently choreographs his new friends through familiar territory on the balcony, in the shower, and of course, in the bedroom:
Wine it up fi mi
Get tough fi mi
Don’t left me out
Cah mi need your company Mek di jaw dem bounce
Left to the right
Jiggle mek your bumper jump fi mi
“Bruk Dung Di Bed,” produced by Nuh Rush Records chief Junior Brown, brings a fresh sound, but follows in the long tradition of Busy Signal songs where the “Bedroom Bully” deejay expresses his appreciation for, and demonstrates his prowess with, the opposite sex. “This track is just highlighting the girls who are vibrant, energetic, and entertaining,” Busy told The FADER.
Also featured on the Tri-Circle Riddim is Spanish Town native Jovi DiPree, who composed the music and lent his vocals and songwriting talents to the title track. As a songwriter, composer, and engineer, the multi-skilled artist has already made a name for himself in musical circles collaborating with top tier Jamaican artists like Spice, Dexta Daps, and Vybz Kartel, among others.
Busy Signal, who is currently enjoying a steady stream of hits circulating in the dancehall, has collaborated with Junior Brown and Nuh Rush Records a number of times on tracks like “Girl You A Champion,” “More Strength” and most recently on the laidback summer vibes of “Margarita.”
“Working with Nuh Rush Records has always been a pleasure. Great team to work with and dedicated to the furtherance of the music. We have a lot more projects together that will be released in due time,” said Busy of the the fruitful relationship.
Busy Signal, whose government name is Reanno Gordon, hails from Saint Ann Parish in Jamaica. He is known for his international reggae hits like “Come Over” and “One More Night,” as well as dancehall staples like “Bedroom Bully” and crossover collaborations like his appearance on Major Lazer’s “Watch Out For This (Bumaye).” Current tracks making noise on the scene include the Afrobeats tune “Bad Gyal” and his collaboration “Bang Bung” alongside the legendary Bounty Killer.
The Yutes, the brother duo composed of Chris and Santris, deftly combine their Jamaican heritage with modern trap elements into a dynamic sound with eclectic appeal. The sons of dancehall legend Mr. Lexx, The Yutes leverage an unparalleled authenticity and heightened musical sensibility to consistently push the creative envelope. Now, they’re bringing that diverse sound into the new year with their Curren$y-assisted single, “High Grade.”
The Yutes’ premiere 2021 track is an infectious collaboration that leans into the respective parties’ marijuana affinity — both sonically and conceptually. Augmenting familiar reggae tones with a hip-hop edge, “High Grade” is a distinct piece that finds footing in ranging musical camps to deliver a textured offering. The Babygrande Records’ single employs a hybrid singing-rapping aesthetic to express a mutual fondness for getting lifted with the assistance of some potent “High Grade.” As marijuana aficionados, The Yutes and Curren$y’s joint effort sparks a new smoker’s anthem that rises high above the clouds.
Aside from the song’s rich sonics, a consequential element of the “High Grade” beauty exists within its boundary-breaking style. The fusion of hip-hop and reggae creates a musical Venn Diagram, offering familiarity for fans of both genres while imparting something novel in the process. It’s a microcosm of The Yutes’ musical mosaic artistry.
Additionally, the timing of the release is auspicious, as the Democrats’ recent securing of the White House and Congress has placed marijuana on the precipice of legalization; most insiders believe that recreational marijuana will be legalized in 2021. As Chris raps, “Tell dem to free it, tell dem no cease it, the people dem need it.”
After a rewarding 2020 campaign, which saw The Yutes’ “Bring It Back” track cross one-million Spotify streams, Chris and Santris are keen on building upon that momentum. “High Grade” is just the beginning of what’s sure to be a dominant run — get ready for an all out blitz from The Yutes this year.
