We had the chance once again to interview the worldwide top celebrity Sean Paul, one of the most famous singers out of Jamaica. He released his album “Live n Livin” last March 2021 produced by his own label Dutty Rock Productions. This album achieved an excellent overall response all over the world and was especially appreciated by reggae and dancehall lovers. The epic album has 16 tracks featuring many Jamaican veteran artists as well as those from the new school: Buju Banton, Bugle, Ward 21, Sotto Bless, Busy Signal, Mutabaruka, Stonebwoy, Masicka, Govana, Intence and many more.
The official videoclip of Rope, the new Chi Ching Ching’s Single included in his debut album Turning Tables, that will be released on the 21st September and produced by Dutty Rock Productions, is online today on Youtube.
We already well known the tune that has become viral among dancers in every dancehall party for the routine. We really enjoyed this shooting with Chi Ching Ching in Far West Version. Obviously, in the video you can’t miss special guests as Sean Paul and many popular dancehall Queens and dancehall Kings from Jamaica like Famous Dancer, Kimiko Versatile, Paul Energy Thompson and more, plus dancers from various countries. A year ago, Chi Ching Ching told to our microphones that he was living a different light in the life. This light seems to be even brighter at this moment in his career. And the wait for his first album is increasing more and more.
