OLDIES SUNDAY: Ding Dong Ft. @IAmQyor – Holiday (2009)


This past week marked the beginning of the 2022 Summer season. Many have been looking forward to relaxing, having fun, explore new territories, and meet new people, and we urge you all to be safe. Nothing says Summer in Jamaica like a party series, or a Summer song. For today’s Oldies Sunday selection, we look back at one of Dancehall’s greatest Summer songs, and it comes from Dancehall Artist/Dancer Ding Dong with the track, “Holiday“!

Produced by Wayne “Hunga” Thompson for Notice Productions and released in 2009, Ding Dong’s “Holiday” single features Recording Artist Chevaughn. On the track, the Artists celebrate taking a break from everything to have endless fun. Whether you were putting down the schoolbooks or escaping the 9 to 5, this was your time to call up friends, and find yourselves somewhere to release the stress. The upbeat single encouraged listeners to break out the dance moves, and the accompanying Road Block Films directed music video showed off colourful outfits, and scenes with friends kicking back and enjoying the Summer holidays.

Ding Dong and Chevaughn’s “Holiday” was a hit, becoming a top ten single in Jamaica, and gaining momentum around the world. The single received a great amount of airplay, and it is considered a classic Dancehall Summer song. Since the release of “Holiday”, Ding Dong has been enjoying a very lucrative music and dance career, and he is still active and on top of his game. Chevaughn scored a few hits for himself over the years, and has recently changed his stage name to Qyor. For those who are ready for the Summer, remember to put “Holiday” in your Playlists.
