Vegas’s ‘Hot Wuk’ Number One On All Three Major Charts
| There seem to be no stopping Vegas’ ‘Hot Wuk’! The song is now number one on all three major charts in Jamaica – Hype TV, Re TV, and ER. Ever since its release the song has been breaking all musical boundaries as it was gobbled up in the dancehall and embraced by the girls. But that is not surprising as Vegas has often claimed that his lyrics are for the girls.
Coming out of 2006 and going into 2007 Vegas is still maintaining a dominant presence in the dancehall. His latest song ‘Gangsta Law’ one of the big tunes on the very hot Taxi riddim (which Buju Banton’s ‘Driver’ is on) is getting some crazy hype right now.
Another song that is enjoying a lot of love on the international scene is ‘Lean Wit It’ which is recorded on the Darker Shade riddim. Incidentally both ‘Gangsta Law’ and ‘Lean Wit It’ are produced by the Riddim Twins who are considered geniuses in the business – Sly & Robbie. There definitely seem to be some musical chemistry between Vegas and the riddim twins.
Coming out of a very busy season which saw him working on most of the major shows of the Christmas season starting with Island Explosion held at Tigar Mart in May Pen on Christmas eve, he had the ladies eating out of the palm of his hand. Christmas Day saw Vegas at Magnum GT Taylor Christmas Extravaganza in St. Elizabeth creating hovoc. It was total pandemonium when he along with the Magnum Dancers did the Hot Wuck!
The singjay moved on to Sting on Boxing day where he totally wowed the thousands that turned out. He was so good that they had to call him back on stage to give the people more!
Vegas will kick off the New Year with Unity Splash, scheduled to be held on January 1 in Westmoreland. And the girls had better be prepared – he will be coming musically armed for them!
