BEENIE MAN MAKES AGGRESSIVE MOVES IN US MARKET
International recording superstar Beenie Man and his management team has inked a distribution deal with Tommy Boy Entertainment LLC to distribute three of the artiste’s more recent singles in the US marketplace.
“We have signed a deal with Tommy Boy that will see them distributing the ‘Greatest Gallis’ song featuring Sean Paul, ‘Soul Mate’, a song with Gyptian that has over 100,00 hits on youtube already after only one month and one more ‘song produced by Beenie Man’s label, MD Entertainment,” Rohan ‘Blue’ Smith, Beenie Man’s manager said in a relase.
Beenie Man recently completed a successful two week mini-tour of the United States where he tested a number of markets stateside to support the release of his upcoming EP, ‘King in Control: Dweet Again’. The tour kicked off performances in Jacksonville before moving on to Orlando, Minnesota, Tampa and upstate New York. The self-proclaimed King of the Dancehall pulled out large numbers of fans on several occasions on the tour.
“The first performance in Jacksonville was incredible, but the best feedback so far was at the Epic Event Center in Minneapolis on April 12th. Is not just any and any artiste can play at the Epic which features big hip hop acts and such, and Beenie Man locked down the show over the weekend…the tour was great, we only missed one show because of some scheduling conflicts. The shows were a confirmation that there is a big demand for Beenie Man and that is why Tommy Boy is now on board,” Rohan ‘Blue’ Smith, Beenie Man’s manager, said in a release.
If the sales of the singles go well, then the management team will fast-track the move to release the EP. Smith said that influential disc jockeys at urban radio stations in the United States have begun to take notice of Beenie Man’s ‘Dweet Again’ single which is an underground success in the ethnic markets in the US.
“We also plan to put out a number of mix CDs for the Summer with new songs to give the public. If all goes well, then we will drop the ‘King in Control: Dweet Again’ EP,” ‘Blue’ Smith said.
Beenie Man scored a huge number one late last year with ‘Dweet Again’, released on the Chase Millz-Jah Snowcone label, topped several local and overseas charts, peaking at #1 on the FIWI Choice charts and HYPE TV charts. The Doctor will headline a string of local and established acts at the 13th staging of the Wisynco-sponsored Westmoreland Curry Festival which will be held on the grounds of the Manning’s School on Sunday, April 28.
Rihanna has made a speedy recovery from her two day stint in hospital, just in time for an all-night partying session at a South Beach night club last night.
The star, who had cancelled two concerts due to exhaustion, wore a skimpy black crop top and a pair of micro shorts as she bared her fit body for a night out on the town in Miami, Florida.
Rihanna’s night was not short of debauchery as she headed over to a strip club to celebrate after returning to the stage earlier that evening.
It’s reported she showed up with her entourage complete with 2 tour buses that blocked the streets until police had to make them move.
The star who left little to the imagination in her outfit had tweeted that her ‘Fantasies came to life’ after watching a number of strippers at the Miami club.
Her wild night comes after reports she was warned by doctors to change her partying lifestyle or risk serious damage to her health.
Rihanna, whose current track ‘Pour It Up’ was inspired by the strip clubs, wrote: “Last night one of my fantasies came to life! I got to see K.O.D strippers dance for me to the stripper song I made!”he star later posted a series of photos to document her raucous evening, including a picture of her showering a strippers body with a bunch of dollar bills.
The picture was accompanied with the caption: “I still got my money #420″ a line from the sexual lyrics in her new song.
Another photo sees the star holding a wad of cash between her thighs with the caption: “Wild for the night, ph*** being polite”.
All seems to be well with the star who had cancelled concerts in Houston sparking everything from overdose to pregnancy rumours.
The star took to the stage in Tampa Florida last night, where she was greeted with celebratory marijuana shaped cake from a fan, before she uploaded a picture of herself enjoying what appeared to be her much loved cannabis joint.
Rihanna’s wild night comes after she had hit out at fans who were disappointed that she had cancelled her concerts.
She hit back over Twitter claiming: “I was sick since San Diego! I kept working because I thought two days off after the Vegas show would be enough time to recover and I f****ed up, those were two days off from hell and today is not different!”
Well it seems RiRi is back to doing what she does best!
