Ce'Cile's 'Push It' tops German chart

September 28, 2016

Dancehall's original 'badgyal' Ce'Cile is riding high this week as her single with DJ Climax, called 'Push It', was the number one song on the German Urban Top 40 Single Chart last week.

This is the entertainer's second number one single on the chart, following the success of her smash hit Hot like We.

Push It jumped from number four on the chart last week to the pinnacle, topping singles like Rude Gyal Swing by Deebuzz and Hard2Def featuring Treesha and Bay-C, which holds the number two slot, and Do You Mind by DJ Khaled featuring Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Future and Rick Ross at number three. Cold Water, the Major Lazer and Justin Bieber single, is at number six.


Ce'Cile, the veteran reggae and dancehall entertainer with close to two decades' experience in the business, said it always feels good to be number one.

"It's always great when your music does well, wherever," she said. "And it boosts your confidence because sometimes if you think only of what works here, then you tend to limit your vocabulary and your style. I write music for the world, not just home."

She expressed gratitude to her fans in Germany, who have been among the biggest supporters of her stellar career as an internationally recognised reggae and dancehall act.

"This is all where it started for me anyways. Germany has always been one of my premier markets, the place I started my Badgyal Movement and my live shows," she said, while alluding to her mention of nine-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt in the song, a prediction of sorts of his exploits in Rio, Brazil, this past August. "I wrote this song at the beginning of the year and included Bolt's name in it along with the 100 metres because I knew he was gonna win, and I wanted to have a story to tell my fans. This was so funny because now I do."

The top 40 Singles Chart is compiled from data used from a number of media networks, including Backspin, Kiss FM, Sputnik, Dasding, JAM/FM, Amya, Musikwoche, MTV, and Rap2Soul, among others.
