JAMAICA – Dancehall superstar Elephant Man is getting a huge buzz with his latest single, Can’t Live Without Woman,featuring Dean Fraser. The song is bombing FM radio into submission, Elephant Man says.
“The response has been great. A 100 times it play on the radio, four times at Hot Monday, response great, feedback great. The idea different, the punchline and chorus excellent, the topic is universal, and musically, it well put it together,” Elephant Man said.
The song samples the popular song, Don’t Mess with My Toot Toot by Sidney Simien, aka Rocking Sidney, with Dean Fraser chiming in on his sax.
Elephant Man is eyeing a summer release for his next album tentatively titled Do The Right Thing, his final album under his VP Records contract.
“We have some boom trackwith producers such as Leftside, Sunshine, Stephen McGregor, Marcus Myrie, so it can shot,” he said.
Elephant Man leaves Jamaica on February 1 for a series of shows in North America and Europe, and returns on February 22.
Asked whether he had been contacted to perform alongside Mariah Carey at the upcoming Jazz and Blues Festival, he said:
“Well, nobody has approached me yet, but more time, they know we work and they work, so they don’t know if I am available. But normally, if she land inna Jamaica, she may make enquiries,” he said.
Elephant Man recorded a single called Got A Thing For You with the songstress a few years ago. The song appeared on the re-released version of Mariah’s Charmbracelet album. – JAMAICAN STAR
