unnamed

From a little town on a small island, “Rude Boys”, the brand new music video performed by Jamaican singer & songwriter, Toian, made its debut on international television station MTV Jams on August 10, 2014.

The video was filmed in various locations around Montego Bay, Jamaica and features a cast of bikers, police cars, school girls, bandannas, white sand beaches, coconut trees and of course “Rude Boys”.

“We wanted to capture an authentic perspective of everyday life in Jamaica,” said director & producer Sean Alaric of Class One Music. “That’s what brought the concept to life.” 

Inspired by her favorite reggae tracks from the 80’s era, Toian recorded the song at the Class One Music Studios in Florida, with backing live instruments adding to the sound of her signature flavor. Having previously collaborated with the likes of multi-platinum selling producer Don Corleon as well as popular reggae & dancehall acts such as Protoje, Konshens & Chevaughn, the multi-talented songstress is now gearing up to share her debut EP album, “Retrospect”, with the world in late 2014.

“Rude Boys” is available for download globally through a variety of online retailers including Amazon.com, Spotify the iTunes Music store at – http://goo.gl/TNcdW4
