RDX starts new year with a ‘Bang’

The Star (Jamaica) - - FRONT PAGE -

Multi-plat­inum, Grammy Award-win­ning, Ja­maica-based artiste Sean Paul kicked off the new year at the pre­miere po­si­tion for mu­sic charts across the world with his ‘Clean Ban­dit’ and Anne-Marie col­lab­o­ra­tion ‘Rock­abye’. Of its 10 weeks on the UK Of­fi­cial Mu­sic Chart, Rock­abye has been the num­ber-one hit for the past eight weeks, and con­tin­ues to hold firm. With its moth­erly, mo­ti­va­tional mes­sage, up­beat tempo and riv­et­ing video, the sin­gle has con­sumed the hearts of many. The Rock­abye fever has also reached The Nether­lands, spend­ing the last three weeks at the pre­miere po­si­tion for the mu­sic charts. In Ire­land, Rock­abye also led the mu­sic charts com­ing out of 2016 and is sus­tain­ing its num­berone po­si­tion into the new year. The hit is gear­ing up to take the Amer­i­can air­waves, reach­ing on the Bill­board’s Hot 100 chart and grad­u­ally climb­ing as the weeks pass. Sean Paul’s No Lie with young English singer and model Dua Lipa is also an­other hit for 2017 and fans have been get­ting teasers all over New Me­dia of the soon-to-be-re­leased mu­sic video. Fans are in for an ac­tion-packed 2017 with his sin­gles al­ready top­ping charts, a highly an­tic­i­pated mu­sic video and an al­bum in wait­ing.

Reni­gade and Delo­mar of RDX are quite cer­tain that 2017 will be one of the best years yet for the duo.

They are not only cel­e­brat­ing an­other ad­di­tion to their vast cat­a­logue of num­ber-one hits in Ja­maica with the LOL sin­gle, but the duo also is poised to hit num­ber one again with their brand new fe­male-in­spired sin­gle Bang.

The sin­gle is a freestyle on a re­make of the 1994 re­leased Car Crash rhythm and was in­spired by an­other freestyle on the same rhythm that the duo saw fe­males re­act­ing to in and out­side of the dance­hall space.

The sin­gle took on wings of its own while they com­pleted their ex­tended tour of Europe l a s t Novem­ber d u e par­tially to the fa­mil­iar­ity of the rhythm, but more so due to the RDX en­ergy that ce­mented Bang as a hit.

The sin­gle was amped even more through­out the fes­tive sea­son with the re­lease of the dy­namic vi­su­als late last month.

The mu­sic video, shot in Bam­boo district, St Ann, and di­rected by RDX, stars pop­u­lar dance­hall dancers Marvin the Beast, DHQ Nick­eisha Dani­iBoo, and Cojo.

Af­ter tak­ing the time to rest and en­joy their fam­i­lies through­out the hol­i­days, RDX is now back on the grind with plans to churn out new projects.

This year also marks the 10th an­niver­sary of the suc­cess­ful RDX brand.

“We in­tend to cel­e­brate our con­tin­ued suc­cess, so look for­ward to ad­di­tional in­ter­na­tional record­ings this year as well as see­ing RDX prop­erly en­ter the car­ni­val mar­ket with our col­lab­o­ra­tive sin­gle with Na­dia Bat­son called Re­verse It. We have some se­ri­ous sur­prises as well as we con­tinue the RDX evo­lu­tion, so lis­ten out!” Reni­gade added

Fans can look for­ward to hear­ing more of RDX’s new sin­gle, Level Up, pro­duced by Not Nice Records this month, as well as the re­lease of the of­fi­cial video for Chrome Wine.

The Bang video is now avail­able for view­ing on RDXVEVO on YouTube.
