J.E.A.L.O.U.S – hottest new song on the circuit by Lady Saw
Talking about heat in the dancehall! First Lady and queen of the dancehall, Marion ‘Lady Saw’ Hall aka ‘Muma’, has one of the hottest new songs that is going to make current chart topper ‘Sunday To Sunday’ look like a joke. And ‘Sunday To Sunday’ is no joke because it is threatening to knock top male artistes from their respective #1 #2 and 3 positions.
This song, titled ‘Jealous’ and recorded for Legend label on the Benny Hill rhythm for top flight producer LeftSide, is certainly going to have lot of people trying to figure out who is the artiste because of the jazzy, instrumental backing and the sophisticated, and to some extent unidentifiable voice of Saw. Radio and sound system jocks are going to find this song so intriguing, it could easily be the Song Of The Year.
A mixture of singing and deejaying, the intro begins as follow with Lady Saw spelling out the letters “J.E.A.L.O.U.S”, followed by: “Those witches can’t spell the names they are wearing on their chest, every time they see me they cut their eyes and spit but those little ‘f’ (ers) can go and break their necks. They are so jealous and just want to be, they want my crown, my throne, my home but I am the only Queen B...dress like a queen, ress like a queen, mansion bigger than housing scheme, gal a chat ‘bout queen and don’t know what it mean.”
That’s just a teaser of what the contents of the song are. Because of the many props and thumbs up the song has been generating from those who have been privy to hear it, in a couple of weeks a video for ‘Jealous’ will be shot.
Other artistes on the Benny Hill rhythm are Elephant Man, Timberlee, Shane O, Sample (Lady Saw’s brother) and Leftside.
