Macka Diamond counteracts Valiant’s Dunce Cheque
Dancehall artise Macka Diamond has responded to Valiant's trending Dunce Cheque single with a witty refix that is already trending on social media.
The song, Sex Budget, was recorded a week ago after Macka teased at it during her performance at Mavado's birthday party in New York last weekend.
"The people like the refix and I'm happy about that. From I posted a teaser on social media, it went viral. So, I knew I had to finish it and send it out 'cause the fans asked me to," Macka said.
The Sex Budget refix focuses more on money and Macka's endorsement of relationships with men who will spend on her.
"Mean men were never my type, so that's the first thing that I thought of when I heard Valiant's song. I usually counteract hit songs that I like, and when I heard Dunce Cheque, I liked it immediately," Macka added
In the meantime, Macka, the self-titled Vendetta Queen, said Mavado's party afforded her the opportunity to link up with Alkaline, an entertainer she describes as one of her favourites. She had not seen Alkaline since her show-stopping performance at his New Rules, which was held in Kingston during the summer.
"I will always have love and respect for him as an artiste and a person, and he has always shown me nothing but positive vibes," she said of Alkaline.
"It was great linking with him in New York, and I'm sure there will be more of that energy in 2023," Macka concluded.
In the last few weeks, Macka has been keeping busy with new music and video releases for singles, Bounce, Dream Body and Katchie, her collaboration with Razor B. She is also preparing for her birthday tour, which will see her making stops in Montreal and Toronto, Canada; Long Island, Poughkeepsie, and Rochester, New York; as well as North Carolina in the USA; and Three Islands in Bahamas, next month.
