The highly anticipated project from MV Music and affiliated brand Team Street Hustle is here to start the Dancehall year on a steamy note. Mr Vegas has now officially released the Hot Magnum project that features three suggestively stimulating singles which showcase the sexy side of dancehall.
In production since early 2014, Hot Magnum had originally been composed as a collaboration single to feature Kranium and Mr Vegas himself, but over the months evolved into the three track compilation. The project features ‘Luv Song’ a track with Mr Vegas, Lady Saw and American rapper Krystal Lareign, a version of this song also made it to Mr Vegas’ Reggae Euphoria Album project that was released in September 2014.
Latty J and Kranium’s single ‘Love it when you talk to me’ also sparked some controversy last year in the production stages when Kranium voiced concerns about collaborating with Latty J on the single. With both Latty J and Kranium being nominated as Breakout Celebrities for 2014 in the Jamaican based 2015 Youth View Awards; it’s clear that both artistes have received notoriety and validate Mr Vegas’ decision to pair the two on this particular track.
The final song in the Hot Magnum set is Mr Vegas’s steamy single ‘On My Shoulder’ with sweltering visuals to boot. Directed by Jay Will’s ‘Game Over’ Films, the video epitomizes the essence of the song itself; an intimate pairing of two individuals who enjoy each other’s company and are not afraid to get adventurous with it.
“The song is sexy without being crass or vulgar and so the visuals had to match it as well. Dancehall can be sexy and sophisticated too, not every interaction is hardcore so I wanted to bring that out in this song and this overall project” Mr Vegas mentioned
‘On My Shoulder’ which samples 1960’s pop single ‘Head on my Shoulder’ by Paul Anka, is currently in distribution online and on Mr Vegas’ Youtube Channel as well as on Television Stations in Jamaica and the region;.
The entire Hot Magnum Project is undoubtedly set to ignite passion in the Dancehall heading into the Valentines Season and beyond.
