Real interesting track concept here; the Barak Obama ‘remix’ (courtesy of DJ Green Lantern) of this year’s reggae smash; On the Rock by Movado. It has already had verses added by Jay-Z and Chipmunk but here some quotables have been dropped in and lyrics slightly changed to fit the context. The next track is a gem I thought was worth adding. Veteran dancehall star Buju Banton does a collaboration with relatively recent R&B star Trey Songz, and samples the Sting & The Police classic (also covered by Diddy if i remember right) called ‘Roxanne’. Could’ve flopped but luckily this ones a banger!
