Busy Signal

Dancehall artiste Busy Signal has been busy indeed since his release from prison last November. The artiste has been frequenting stage shows making up for lost time with fans.

Since his release, the artiste has also shot three music videos, two of which are for his singles Bout It and Defence, both on Foota Hype's Church Money Riddim. His latest video shoot was with Major Lazer for the collaborative single Buyame (Watch Out Fi Dis).

Busy Signal told The Star that he recorded Buyame the same day he recorded his hit collaboration with No Doubt - Push and Shove. His verse was reworked however, and both Busy Signal and Walshy Fire admitted that the artiste didn't even recognise it when he heard it at the video shoot for the first time and much of his performance in the video was improvised.

The music video was shot by Jay Will, on location in Kingston.

Major Lazer's Walshy Fire told The STAR that the music video will be like a blast from the past, specifically the '90s - one of the most lauded eras in music history.

"The video is going to be '90s retro themed - one of the best eras of dancehall music for me. The single has a 'Murder She Wrote' kind of vibes to it so that inspired the concept of the video," the DJ said, adding that he went into his own closet for the clothes that he wore in the video which includes a linen suit that he says he wore to a Capleton concert back in the day.

The music video is expected to be released in another two weeks.

The video was shot here in Jamaica and features cameos from reggae artiste Chronixx alongside Shaggy and Eve. Walshy Fire told The STAR that Eve called him up personally while she was in Jamaica to work with him.
