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.

We Highlight Some Of The Dancehall Artists Who Have Defined The 2010s!


December 31, 2019 marks the last day of the 2010s, and January 1, 2020 will mark the first day of a new decade. It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times, but today we look back at some of Dancehall Artists who have made an impact on the scene. With so many hits and moments, we know lists and faves will vary. Before we start, we want to thank everyone who has given our Blog and Social Media a chance since 2012. We’ve featured so many and have assisted in the careers of plenty, we look forward to doing even more in 2020, and beyond. Let’s get started with our lengthy list.

(Editor’s Note: Everyone’s list is different, so if you have a problem with this one…make your own!)

Vybz Kartel

I mean, what’s a list without the “World Boss“? A man who continued to add fuel to the fire of his musical career, long after making his debut in the early 2000s. With his entrepreneurial side blooming with a Shoe line, Liquor line, Nightclub, Merch, to even Condoms, Vybz was everywhere. He even had a Reality TV series, and kept up with quite a bit of controversy too. Despite him being thrown behind bars in 2011 and facing 35 years soon after, it didn’t stop him from recording music, and releasing singles and albums up to this day. Remember his “Freaky Girl” saga? We know you all have a few Kartel tracks in rotation.

Spice

Spice is also an Artist you can’t deny when it comes to this list as well. Spice held it down for the ladies, and showed the men that she can handle her own. With so many bookings, i’m surprised there isn’t a row or an Airline named after her yet. Spice kept the hits coming, and flexed her entrepreneurial muscle as well with her “Spicey Couture” store which started growing since opening in 2009. With the help of Social Media, Spice’s brand got bigger, and took a major turn in 2018 when she was made a cast member on the popular VH1 Reality TV series, “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta”. Spice welcomed her share of controversy as well which included relationship issues, and the topic of Colorism. With her career starting in the early 2000s, she kept the fire going like her “World Boss” colleague, and got crowned Queen in the process.

Pick Up & Run With These Current Dancehall X Soca Hits!


The 2019 Carnival season is officially on its way, and Dancehall artists are teaming up with Soca’s finest stars for various collaborations. It’s definitely a good look for the genres as it gives them more leverage to different markets, even after the seasons is done. Carnival is an International brand with different cities and countries around the world hosting their own. With more interest in the Caribbean culture over the years, it’s a pivotal moment for Dancehall and Soca to make a greater push for the International market with these collaborations. For those unfamiliar, the Jamaican love affair with Soca and Carnival dates back to the 1940s at the University of the West Indies (Mona Campus), and the collaborations over time are just great moments in this ever growing union. With their feel good vibes and ability to bring people together, the collaborations will continue. Today we’re featuring a few of the Dancehall x Soca crossovers that are currently making waves on the scene.
