Melloquence collaborates with Elephant Man for new single ‘Hold Me’
2014 looks very promising so far for rising dancehall star Melloquence who has been steadily paving his way in the industry with releases on some of dancehall’s more popular rhythms since last year, namely: JA Production’s “OverDrive Rhythm” and theFrastwinz Music produced “Starizma Rhythm”. January saw the singjay releasing a medley music video for his songs “Hot Suh/Starizma (Star life)” on the above mentioned projects and already he’s set to release yet another music video, this time for a collaboration effort with international dancehall super star Elephant Man entitled ‘Hold Me’.
Although it is not officially released as yet, ‘Hold Me’ has been enjoying rotation on most of the island’s major radio stations including Zip 103 FM,Irie FM and Suncity FM etc. over the past few weeks and with the music video slated to be released this weekend both artistes are confident this will propel the single to higher heights. “From the get go wi know people would gravitate to this song especially the females that’s why we never even hesitate to shoot the video , ‘Hold Me’ is one of those songs that a DJ can play in a dance and get the females to ‘bruk out’ and at the same time it’s radio friendly and commercial enough to be played at a family event and buss the place, it’s just a ‘feel good’ song and right now the music needs that” Melloquenceexplained. Elephant Man on the other hand thinks it’s refreshing and credits this release as a strategic one. “Right now the girls dem need some songs like these, is a breath of fresh air, furthermore a carnival season now the girls dem want dance” he concurred.
The video was shot by Inna Wi Genes Filmz at the Board Walk Beach in Portmore and edited by Cashflow’s Extreme Arts and features cameos from some of dancehall’s top female dancers and video vixens including DHQ Nickiesha and Queen Latesha to name a few.
The single is produced by the European-based label Weedy G SoundForce, who recently dropped the “Casiotone Riddim”, and will be distributed by VP Records
