BABY TASH'S FACEBOOK HITS TORONTO TOP TEN CHARTS
Evidently, music lovers are logging on to Baby Tash's 'Facebook' song, as the song has roared to #11 on the Blazing Bubbler's Risng to the top chart on disc jockey Richard Banton's weekly Toronto Top Ten
Reggae/Dancehall Singles Week Ending Oct 17th.
"This is a good start for Baby Tash, it shows that she is ready to break out of the mold of being a contest winner and emerge as a bonafide star. We have been getting feedback all over the world that
the song is being played in England, it is doing well in New Jersey and other areas of the USA. The buzz is definitely building on Baby Tash," manager said.
The chart show is aired on a programme called Radio Dubplate Saturdays 10am to 1pm on CHRY 105.5FM The Beat with Richard Banton.
In the meantime, there are plans to shoot a video for Tash's breakout single with its infectious singalong hook. The single has been blowing up all over FM radio. A veteran performer who has made a lasting
impact on every major competition held in the performing arts — from Festival to Tastee Talent Contest to Digicel Rising Stars — and also Dancing Dynamites, BT has solidified a decent little underground
following with this breakout hit.
Facebook is one of the few end-to-end satisfying songs to have emerged in 2009, a juicy song with a bouncy hook and PG 13 sexual innuendo that is set to dominate radio. Baby Tash recently appeared on the Hot Buzz on Hot 102, and on an entertainment programme on Hitz FM. Until the video is shot next month, you can just sing along on the radio.
JAMAICA'S BARBEE 'FEELS SO GOOD'
The 'Feels So Good' music video from sexy reggae singer Barbee premiered on Saturday on Winford Williams' OnStage and earned the soulful singer some big props.
After the premiere, her momiger's (mother/manager, Rose) phone was ringing off the hook as people called to congratulate Barbee on a great video and for her super hot sexy looks.
Shot at the prestigious Jamaica Conference Centre in Kingston, TD Films under the direction of Ras Tingle worked round the clock to capture the perfect ambiance for the 'Feels So Good' single that has been getting heavy airplay locally and abroad.
G and her crew from G&G Beauty Supply & Salon in Toronto, Canada flew into the island to outfit Barbee and the video ladies with their lace wigs, while Cathy was on par with makeup.
All the outfits featured in the video were styled by Barbee herself, who is always a perfectionist when it comes to flair and class - one of the reasons the diva loves shooting her videos in Jamaica.
"For me, there is nothing like the creativity and authenticity of the real Jamaican culture and vibes, that's why I love shooting my videos here," said Barbee.
'Feels So Good', produced by Dean Fraser and released on the Chi Ching Ching label, is one of the singer's favourites. She is drawn to and has a natural love for the soft, mellow, silkiness of old school music, and she wanted to recapture that feel with this single.
"I'm always happy to make music that soothes the soul and thrills the heart," said the singer. "A lot of people have told me they are tired of the constant negative lyrics and heavy beat pounding at them, they want something sweet and mellow, and I was all too happy to give them that."
The concept of the music video fits in perfectly with the single and so far everyone’s loving it.
Barbee jets off to the US shortly to continue her busy promotional tour that has taken her coast to coast across the US and Canada, as well as various Caribbean islands. Among her many stops were performing on several big events, including opening for Percy Sledge, singing happy birthday to Beres Hammond, and making a cameo appearance in the movie 'House Arrest' opposite The Game.
She returns to Jamaica in a few weeks to jump into the shooting of the video for 'Can I Stay With You'.
