It’s another Oldies Sunday! Today, we’re turning up the vibe with a classic. Today’s selection comes from Super Black with the single, “Deh Wid You“.
Produced by King Jammys on the “Heavenless Riddim” and released through the Jammys label in 1986, Super Black steps to a young lady who entered his life “like she big and she broad“. Super Black takes on a melodic delivery on “Deh Wid You” as he shares to the lady that she would’ve been the right Woman for him to love and lavish with gifts had his experience with her was a favourable one, and she had certain qualities about her. “Deh Wid You” was an instant hit for Super Black, as it gained popularity locally and internationally in the dance, and in the mainstream. “Deh Wid You” was featured on the compilation project, “Double Twin Spin Vol. 1” in 1986/87, and became Super Black’s most successful single. A music video directed by famed Director Llewellyn O’Reggio was made in support of the track, and was a hit as well on local Television. “Deh Wid You” was sampled by Junior Cat for his track, “Woulda Let You Go“.
Since the release of “Deh Wid You”, Super Black went on to release more music. He scored a few more hits along the way, but found it difficult to top the success of “Deh Wid You”. “Deh Wid You” is still celebrated along with some of his other hits, and Super Black is recognized as one of the voices who ruled in the early years of Dancehall.
