NUH LINGA DANCES INTO BILLBOARD CHART
The flamboyant Elephant Man, known for taking dancing and excitement to new heights in the dancehall is the toast of many cities across North America as his single and dance of the same name is making crazy leaps on the Billboard Chart. Nuh Linga which muscled its way to the top of every chart locally, now seem set to explode overseas and the Energy God couldn’t be more pleased.
According to the deejay’s management team, Nuh Linga was put in rotation on New York radio station, Hot 97, two months ago and the constant spins have surely paid off. Nuh Linga danced its way into the ‘bible’ of entertainment charts, Billboard. It made its debut at number 100 on the Billboard R&B Hip Hop Singles & Tracks chart at the end of April and now sits at number 84, moving up 16 places.
“Nuh Linga is just a dynamic song … it tek the place and fans just love the dance move. Father Elephant strikes again. Mucho mucho caliente!” the flamboyant Elephant Man declared.
Elephant Man is no stranger to the Billboard charts. He has already charted with titles including Shake that Body featuring PI, Signal the Plane, Jook Gal (Wine Wine), Pon Di River Pon Di Bank, Father Elephant and Don’t Stop with Janet Jackson. The deejay received the ultimate stamp of approval from the music industry last year when he was nominated for a Grammy award for his Bad Boy/VP Records album Let’s Get Physical.
The Energy God was nominated for the first time and while he didn’t receive the award, the nomination was an excellent image booster. Elephant, who is one of the performers on this year’s Reggae Sumfest, is also scheduled to perform at Best of the Best showcase on Sunday at Miami’s Bicentennial Park. Produced by JBJ Entertainment, this year’s roster showcases artistes who are at the top of their game, in their respective genres, in Caribbean and urban music.
