Steely & Clevie & Shabba Ranks Get Sampled On New @TaiAyshaMami X @Saweetie Single!


Ting-A-Ling-A-Ling, a new song is in, sampling some sounds from a 90s Dancehall Riddim! Model/Recording Artist Tai’Aysha made her debut today with the single, “One Night Ting“. The single features an appearance by Saweetie, and was co-produced by the legendary Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor! While there is high hopes that this will be a hit for Tai’Aysha, we’re here for the sample! Dancehall heads would immediately pick out a similar sound, namely Shabba Ranks’ 1992 classic, “Ting-A-Ling. “Ting-A-Ling” would come from a classic Riddim called, the “Gi-Gi Riddim“.

The “Gi-Gi Riddim” was produced by the legendary Production duo of Steely & Clevie a.k.a. Wycliffe Johnson and Cleveland Browne, helped to birth the classic Shabba Ranks single, “Ting-A-Ling”. “Ting-A-Ling” was featured on Shabba’s 1992 “X-tra Naked” Album. “X-Tra Naked” won a GRAMMY for Best Reggae Album in 1993, and was certified Gold. Tai’Aysha and Saweetie’s “One Night Ting” isn’t the first time “Ting-A-Ling” got sampled, and everyone from Patra, Wale, Vybz Kartel, to Nicki Minaj all sampled “Ting-A-Ling” and the “Gi-Gi Riddim”.
