Overdrive rhythm pulls top artistes

Mavado - File

Jamaican super-producer Justus Arison is riding a high with his popular Overdrive rhythm which received a shot in the arm with the release of a new single by Konshens called 'Independent Girl', a few weeks ago.

On this single, Konshens reps independent girls who flash their own chequebooks and hot rides. The single has been blowing up FM radio over the last two weeks.

Arguably, the most popular single on the rhythm is Popcaan's Smile Again. Popcaan's other song on the rhythm, Da Ting Deh, released in November, regales the virtues of freaky girls.

RDX showcases their knack for brilliant singalong hooks with Island Girl where they name-check girls from all the Caribbean islands. Supa Hype, Gyptian and Fambo team up for the ultimate summer jam, Summa Dat, with hilarious moments provided by Supa Hype.

In Explode, Beenie Man name-drops a couple of sexy female artistes, while the brilliant rookie Villanaire, announces his arrival on the dancehall scene with Charge Up. A video for that single is to be released.

Aiasha uses her cider-sweet vocals to sing about Good Vybz, while Bramma instructs Meet Me On The Way.

Elephant Man does Sick A We while Tifa delivers on Mi Baby. Chino does witty metaphors on Focus and Mavado teams up with Nicki Minaj for Give It All To Me. That song hit #1 on various dancehall charts all over the Caribbean.

Overdrive is the last instalment in The Overproof trilogy. The original 'Overproof' rhythm itself earned international attention when R&B singer Daniel Beddingfield recorded a song on it called Sometimes You Just Know.
