dancehall artiste Bridgez is finally getting her aural and oral game right with a new salacious single called ‘Know You Baby’.
The song has shocked listeners and won her a new generation of fans, given the mad props from the public on her Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts since its release.
“Yes, I’ve done it before, so what? Oral sex is not something to be ashamed of, what’s the big deal? Since my song came out on YouTube last week, a lot of people have given me support. the disc jockeys, the selectors say they like it. one even said if the song didn’t sound like a hit, I would’ve gotten bun out for that one line, but he said because it sounds good, he likes it. A few of my family members have called since the song was released, as they are a bit concerned, but I am an adult expressing myself,” Bridgez, aka Beretta, said.
She said the song is not explicitly about oral sex, but it has struck a chord with both males and females because of its risqué content.
“This is just a song of a girl who is falling in love with someone they are already sexually involved with, and someone with whom they want to ‘get to know better’. For me, oral sex is the next level of the relationship. it is something intimate with someone special, someone you really love,” she said.
Oral sex has always been a tabooed topic in Jamaican dancehall, but since Ce’cile first deliciously raised the subject years ago, all the inhibitions are finally going out the window. Bridgez is leading the charge of female deejays who are not afraid to announce their oral skills to the world. She is a bit surprised at the huge feedback on social media, given that the song has not yet fully hit FM radio.
“People are hearing it like crazy. it is not even out there like that, except on the Internet and on a couple ofmix tapes. my phone keeps blowing up; New York, Miami, even Europe have been calling,” she said.
“This is the first time that I am getting so much buzz on a song so soon. The selectors love it; Simple White, Teach and Sigar are playing it on Rebel Radio. Rocksteady from Flames radio in the UK is playing it, and also ZJ Liquid has given me positive feedback,” she said.
In this song, Bridgez, who has just added Beretta to her name as an alter ego, admits openly to doing oral sex. Produced on the Chase Mills Records label, it is a cover of Sasha’s Sexy Body, on the ‘Bookshelf’ rhythm, that was done over 10 years ago.
“All the old taboos are out the window; this is a new age.I am not trying to be the new poster girl for oral sex. I don’t really think it matters about who does it or doesn’t do it. What matters is showing people that’s there is nothing wrong with expressing yourself through music. Whether its something you fantasize about or something you do in real life, music is always an escape to vent those thoughts, too, and that’s what I did with this song,” she said.
