CeCile strikes Gold

Cecile born Cecile Charlton we feel must be one of Dancehall Music's most versatile performers, this girl is talented beyond compare. She can sing, she can dj or toast or rap (whatever you call it) and to boot she is a FINE looking young lady.

Probably one of the more under-rated talents in Jamaica she shows her true talent on the recent single by DJ Fresh "Gold Dust". She sure hit the jackpot with this one, the song is maaad 

Gold Dust is the third single released from DJ Fresh's second album Kryptonite. It reached #6 on the UK Dance charts, #24 on the UK Singles Chart and #39 on the Irish Singles Chart and is a favourite club djs worldwide.

The song was actually first recorded by British sensation Ms Dynamite but  was re-recorded by the Jamaican song bird Cecile.

The video is known more popularly as the amazing skipping video, it was filmed at the Brownsville Project in Brooklyn and captures some performances by American Double Dutch Champions, Jumpers In Command.
Listen to DJ Fresh speak about the background to the song and his high regard for CeCile (watch up to the  4:28 time mark) you can hang around after if you wish but the important part about Cecile is really from 1:59 -4:28.

If you dont think Cecile she killed this song check out the original version sung by Ms Dynamite. strangely enough the both have the same kind of voice but the reggae and Jamaican swagger and cadence found by Cecile puts this song over the top....maaahd

Also lets not forget another song which surely must be the breakout single for CeCile where she again showcases her singing and DJ talents on the ealy 80s hit "Changez"(strangely enough it was considered a controversial song at the time becuase of her apparent diss to the stalwarts in the dancehall arena)

Gwaan Bad Gyal Cecile you are gold in our books anytime, Oh also BTW Congrats to her on the birth of her bouncing baby daughter.
