Producer Ricky Blaze is back with a dope new track titled, "Take Ya Money" featuring Chelley. This is definitely going to be a revenge anthem for women this summer, with Chelley taking over this track by simply just being a boss. She rhymes about her emotionless attachment to men, using them for money, and her own fabulousness. And you can't hate on that- all she's doing is reversing some gendered behaviour while at the same time, playing into the stereotype of "Gold Digger" that is constantly thrown at women. So why not sing about it? The track has a bouncy, dancehall vibe with a whistle blowing throughout. Chelley lends her voice to singing as well as rhyming, showing off her talents not just for, as she declares, spending men's money, but as a wonderful, sassy artist.
Here's a new, laid-back track from Gyptian (who will be performing at The London Music Hall with Ammoye on February 7th). I really like this track, it's a mashup of reggae, dancehall, R&B and even- if I dare say -pop! That's right, "Stuck" has an easy-going production that can easily appeal to all kinds of fans. While Gyptian did gain huge success from his radio-hit "Hold Yuh" and received crazy club play with "Nah Let Go", "Stuck" is more mainstream than Gyptian's other singles, and, taking a guess into the future, I think this is sure to be a big summer jam. Produced by Ricky Blaze, a 24 year-old Brooklyn native, "Stuck" has that signature, summery-sweet production as we've seen in Blaze's hit "Just You and I". Since then, he has gone on to produce records for "Lions, Tigers & Bears" singer Jazmine Sullivan on her album Love Me Back, co-produced with Missy Elliot; Vybz Kartel's "Touch A Button” and has also worked with Major Lazer and Diplo.
