Tega excites club scene with new single


Singing Melody - Contributed

New York-based reggae artiste Tega is generating a lot of attention on the club scene with her new single, Two Wrongs, featuring reggae star Singing Melody.

The song is a remake of the Two Wrongs hit song originally recorded byWyclef Jean and Claudette Ortiz, a member of the Grammy nominatedAmerican R&B/hip-hop trioCity High, several years ago.

"Basically, I always loved the song and decided I wanted to do a dancehall remake of it. I contacted Jamaica's big bad songwriter/producer Patrick 'Black Pearl' Howell whom I've been working with to see what his thoughts were about the idea and he loved it right away and wanted to co-produce the track with me," she said.

Then one day, Black Pearl was in the studio with Singing Melody when Tega contacted him.

"I could hear Melody's voice in the background like he was laying down a track and right away I told Pearl that I wanted Singing Melody for the part. His voice was perfect for it. Singing Melody agreed and did a phenomenal job with it!" she said enthusiastically.

The song was first premiered on 91.3 Parti FM in NY by DJ Short Mike, and the response was immediate and overwhelming with the switchboard jammed with incoming calls to the station for a pull up. The single is generating at least 50 spins on major underground radio stations in New York each week.

Only released a month ago, the song has already become a sensation in the social media, with several links all over Facebook and Twitter.

Tega is known for singles such as Can't Hold Me Down, Damn featuring Harry Toddler and the infamous No Hotness which caused controversy with another female artiste back in 2008.
