Register and Mix up are what the first Magnum King and Queen of Dancehall, Singer Jah and Baby Tash have unleashed through Real Jam Records as their first successful singles. The songs which have been receiving air-plays on various radio stations got their official premier at the launch of the 2008/2009 season of Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall. Along with the official videos for both songs the tracks are expected to take over the colours of TV in the coming weeks as various TV and Cable station premieres the videos.
Just over six months after winning the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall 2008 competition, Singer Jah and Baby Tash are showing that they are poised for growth. Both worked with top producers in the music industry to create high quality videos for their respective singles. Both videos premiered on the Entertainment Report recently and also had their debut on TVJ's Intense. Singer Jah had the opportunity to work with Mellissa Llewellyn as producer and J Will as director for his video Register. Baby Tash on the other hand worked along with producer Carlene Samuels and Kimala "Lala" Bennett as director.
In a heighten state of joy Singer Jah had nothing but praises to deliver about Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall. "No matter how many interviews I do, I have to bless up Magnum Kings and Queens because they are the ones who gave me the opportunity for to be recognized." commented the singer.
Asked about what he thought of the video Singer Jah commented that he was passionate about it just the same as he was about his work. "The video itself is a part of the song; both of them combined are good, and the video really reflects what the song is about…it sell off," opined Singer Jah of his song and video which illustrates pain caused by a female who broke the heart of her male companion.
Baby Tash noted that she chose the single Mix Up particularly because of the reactions that the crowd had toward the song. "The song is really about people who pay more attention to other people's life than their own," said the deejay who confesses to being a little shy. "This is something real, you even have a line in the song that says 'them know everything bout Angel and Beenie". The deejay of Mix Up and past student of Jonathan High said, "I'm doing something that I love, so it wasn't just about the competition it was more than that it was a part of me".
The public have seen the Magnum King and Queen of Dancehall performed at several shows including the Magnum Dancehall Road shows, which have passed through the Amnesia Night Club in Ocho Rios, Mobay and several hot spots across the island. When prompted about the expected success of Singer Jah and Baby Tash, Executive Producer of Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall, Mark Kenny, noted that he is proud of how the artistes are progressing and is looking forward to seeing them going places. "I'm very proud of the level of success so far for Baby Tash and Singer Jah since they took the top spots and I'm really looking forward to seeing them take off successfully in Jamaica and going International."
