BOUNTY HYPE

The Star (St. Lucia) - Life Begins 2 Nite - - CONTENTS -

En­ter­tainer Bounty Hype has been a stage per­son­al­ity here in Saint Lu­cia for a num­ber of years. He first started off as an MC with dance­hall Dee­jays be­fore dab­bling in danc­ing with the Hype Squad for a num­ber of years. The group helped pop­u­lar­ize a num­ber of dances as­so­ci­ated with Ja­maican dance­hall mu­sic. Bounty has also stepped up to the mic as a sing­jay, voic­ing a few dance­hall tracks. But now, af­ter much prod­ding from his friend Snap­per, he has stepped up to the Soca plate.

Last week Bounty Hype re­leased his very first Groovy Soca sin­gle “Love the way you whine it.”

He spoke to 2Nite Mag­a­zine about how the song came about.

“I started to freestyle a song and Carro of Carro’s Kitchen heard me and de­cided to write the song,” Bounty says. “So af­ter I came up with the hook, he went home and the next day he came up with the song,” he went on to re­veal.

Lear­rie of Stu­dio No Xcite­ment was ap­proached to record the track, which he agreed to. “Lear­rie did the ar­range­ments and pro­duced the song,” Bounty says. The song has since been re­leased to lo­cal ra­dio and Bounty says he will be go­ing all out to pro­mote “Love the way you whine it,” for Saint Lu­cia car­ni­val and be­yond.

“I in­tend on tak­ing this song as far as I can,” he says. He is also thank­ful to per­sons like Snap­per, Hol­ly­wood HP, Mega B, Ezra, Mr. Hazel and Ms. Ge­orgie, Dr. Phils, Du­val, Garvin and his mother for their con­tin­u­ous show of sup­port and en­cour­age­ment.
