Bounty helps Sanjay, Shelly Belly to 'Tekova'
With the 'Tekova' single by Sanjay and Shelly Belly gaining traction locally right before the two left for their joint tour of Europe, it is no surprise that on returning to the island almost two months later, the two would jump right back into promotion mode for the track.
They have now hyped the song by remixing it with dancehall legend Bounty Killer.
Sanjay and Shelly Belly have found chemistry in the studio, recording tracks like Belleh and Chip Chop.
It is no surprise that Bounty Killer would be an artiste with whom the two would want to collaborate.
"We actually wanted Bounty on the Belleh remix along with the other artistes earlier this year, but he said as much as he loved the single, it wasn't his style. So when he heard Tekova, he said yes," Sanjay shared.
As a more hard-core dancehall artiste, it is quite monumental to hear the hard-core deejay on such a single.
"Bounty hear the original at a street dance one night and tell me that him ready fi dis one. When him voice the track, him say this a dancehall history! It's a big deal to have an icon like Killa rate your work and want to even work with you. Trust me," Shelly Belly added.
While in Europe, Sanjay and Shelly Belly started shooting scenes for the original Tekova video and are now gearing up to record additional footage to include Bounty and the remix into the finished product.
The two will also be releasing the complete Belleh documentary, which includes footage of their recent European tour.
The Tekova Remix will premiere on local radio this week, with an official digital release expected later this month.
Sanjay is also putting finishing touches to his reggae album, which shows the variation in his style from dancehall beats to slower grooves, like his earlier single, Man Of My Word.
