Blak Ryno rides high with 'BMX Bicycle'

The streets have been buzzing about Blak Ryno's latest single, BMX Bicycle, a catchy singalong dancehall banger with a killer hook.

The single has become a big favourite in Kingston's street dances and on mixtapes all over the country, and it has racked up over 20,000 hits in only four weeks on YouTube.

"The song shot, it definitely a pick up, the streets a feel it, so right now, mi a pree fi do a video and push it hard," Blak Ryno said.

Blak Ryno said his delivery and the witty lyrics are what make the song such a big hit. He deejays:

Mi nah blow nothing through money like a whistle

Mommy used to talk and mi listen

Don't give no man no ride pon yu BMX bicycle

Mi waa mek ten zillion point sitten

Markus say the cheque written

Mi nah mek no man try ride mi BMX bicycle

The song was recorded for former producer of the year, Markus Myrie, on his Markus Records label. Blak Ryno had previously recorded songs such as Bere Gal and Why Life Nuh Sweet for Markus Records.

"The first time I heard it, I knew it was a hit, this is the first song that I have done with Blak Ryno in over a year, so when he did the hook, mi just mek him record it same time because mi know that it shot," producer Markus Myrie said.

Blak Ryno recently released videos for his single, I Am Blessed. He is also looking to establish his own label. The former member of Vybz Kartel's Portmore Empire said he will be launching his own group of young and upcoming stars, walking in the footsteps of his former mentor, Adidja Palmer.
