OLDIES SUNDAY: @BusySignal_Turf – Step Out (2005)


The 2000s gave us some awesome Dancehall music, don’t you agree? Today’s Oldies Sunday selections brings some energy from that era courtesy of Busy Signal! Today we feature his breakout hit, “Step Out“! Produced by Equiknoxx Music on the “Step Out Riddim“, this was released in 2005 and had eyes and ears focused on Busy as he brought a unique sound to the game.

The song proved to be successful as it helped to propel the Deejay onto the forefront of the Dancehall scene. The success didn’t come without controversy however as various Producers were credited to producing the track. In the end, the true Producers were given the proper recognition, and the track went on to be featured on many compilations including Busy Signal’s 2006 debut album, “Step Out“. Since “Step Out”, Busy has went on to release many more hit singles and projects. Though he was in trouble with the law and found himself in the midst of various feuds, Busy’s career went on to flourish to this day.
