Double DDee releases Birthday Sex
United States-based Jamaican dancehall artiste Double DDee is generating a buzz with her saucy single, 'Birthday Sex', featuring Shawn Ice.
She will be amping up promotion of the single in 2016.
"My video was shot by Aroll productions in November, and is scheduled for release in January. The feedback has been incredible so far," she said.
The risquE lyrics of Birthday Sex and the playful interaction between Shawn Ice and Double DDee have made it a favourite among teens.
"The audio video has been released on VEVO's new urban channel that facilitates a lot of reggae music. A video gamer put Birthday Sex in a frame called 'Second Life', and I shared a clip on my artiste page and got over 133,000 views since the second week of November," she said.
The artiste first came to public attention with the hard-hitting single, Telephone Bad Gal, which racked up regular spins on SunCity Radio and Hitz FM. Another single, Real Hard, on the 'Drywall' rhythm, produced by Twizz, also did well on video-sharing platforms.
She embraces her US and Jamaican heritage.
"I embrace both cultures because I sing, rap, and deejay," she said.
Double DDee is also an entrepreneur. She kick-started her own record label and publishing company, Davgion, in 2014. There are two dancehall-reggae acts signed to the label, Chinsu and Firstborn LNJ.
Earlier this year, the Davgion label released an EP with four singles. The songs were Wall Paper, When Yu Wine, Run Run, and Me Have the Leathering, all for the talented Chinsu.
