Vegas, Ameera remake Adele’s Hello
Mr Vegas has an uncanny ability to take international pop songs and make them into dancehall hits.
Earlier this year he topped reggae and dancehall charts worldwide with his cover of Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud.
He is at it again, but this time, he has given the lead role to former Lady Gaga background vocalist Ameera on a remake of Adele's mega-hit single Hello.
The American R&B singer, whose father is Jamaican, shows off her impressive vocal range as she delivers an awesome rendition of Hello in an old school dancehall style on the Magic Moment rhythm that was created by Steely and Cleevie for King Jammys in the late 1980s.
"Ameera is an amazingly gifted singer. Her vocal range is incredible, and I love the fact that she's so versatile. Just listen to the way she hits her notes on this slow-grooving dancehall rhythm," said Vegas.
MV Music has released two
versions of the song on iTunes Hello - Ameera, and Hello - Ameera featuring Mr Vegas.
"The response to both versions of the song has been very positive, especially on YouTube," Mr Vegas said.
A music video for the version of the song that features Mr Vegas was recently uploaded to YouTube.
Vegas also revealed that he has big plans for Ameera. "Ameera is now a part of the MV Music camp. she's very talented. I've always been impressed with her from the time I saw her on the final season of Puff Daddy's Making the Band," he said.
