I-OCTANE’S LOSE A FRIEND GETS NEW LIFE
The recent turn of events since the State of Emergency in Kingston was announced and the death of Voicemail member O’Neil Edwards may be the contributing factors for the reason I-Octane’s single Lose A friend is now enjoying ‘new life’ in the dancehall. The single, which to date has been his most popular song is now one of the most requested songs in the past few days in the clubs and on many of the reggae programmes.
“I have been receiving calls from selectors and disc jocks about the number of requests coming in for it,” I-Octane said. He pointed out that a lot of people have been losing friends during this rough time that the country is going through, surmising that they are using the song to express the emotions they feel.
“At some point in our lives we all have lost someone who is dear to us, everyone can relate to this song and that’s the reason a lot of persons are relating to it,” the singjay said.
Lose a Friend peak at number one on most charts and still enjoying a presence on some charts such as Jamaica Music Countdown Stampede street chart and Yardflex Top 10.
