Riley plans video after song becomes a hit
Tarrus Riley has revealed that a video for his hit song 'Don't Come Back' is coming soon.
The song, which is on the Crown Love rhythm that has being doing very well in the French- and Spanish-speaking islands in the Caribbean, was also a number one song in Trinidad and Tobago.
The video, Riley said, is to be directed by noted music video expert Walu, who has videos for Sean Paul's Call on Jah, that featured Spragga Benz and Segarra's 5150, featuring Busta Rhymes, among his many credits.
The video became a must once the single, that was produced by Russian of Head Concussion, developed a massive following in the Caribbean, Riley told THE WEEKEND STAR. "The song is exploding all over the Caribbean. We were recently in the French Caribbean - Martinique, Guadeloupe - and they were fanatical about the song. The song is also doing well in the Spanish areas, because there is a little bit of Spanish in it and it is on a rhythm they like," Riley said, referring the reggaeton-type beat. "It is a nice love song stating that if you feel like you want to take me and play me for a fool, I prefer you leave and don't come back."
The song was written by Tarrus and his friend Craigy T of the now-defunct TOK. "He is my family and he and I kind of vibed it and built it together," said Riley, who was speaking to THE WEEKEND STAR from New York where he in on business.
