Dancehall Fusion Up Up UP

LOVE the Dancehall fusion vibes in the air right now! Dancehall is Up Up Up

Fresh in the vibe of Rhianna and Drake"Work Work Work" comes this hit from AlunaGeorge featuring Popcaan "I'm in Control".AlunaGeorge are an English electronic music duo from London, consisting of Aluna Francis (vocals) and George Reid (production)

One thing about England they have a maaaad appetite and respect for Dancehall music and it is manifested again in this hit song. We spoke about  just last week Sigala "Say you Do"and now this song set up as Number 4 on the BBC R1 Dance Charts with a bullet.

The video initially looked like Jamaica (especially the intro instrumental) but most Jamaicans having seen the first few frames would have known it wasn't Jamaica. Still Caribbean and still maaad  representing.

Interesting how Jamaican patios curse words get away when people have no idea whats being said ;-)

See some of the comments online:

Only draw back no Unruly up in the video

Part of this new style of videos which I call "Keeping it Real" and "In the Streets" it reminds me of a similar sound and video that Major Lazer did for Get Free..MAAAD ENERGY
