Info: Music lovers are filled with excitement, as the four time Grammy award winning producer Tony ‘CD’ Kelly, releases the ‘1st Quarter’ riddim to the delight of dancehall reggae lovers everywhere.
K..Licious Music Group, Tony’s label, has produced some of dancehall and reggae’s most successful singles, albums and collaborations. His success as a producer however, has not been limited to one genre. His catalogue boasts an impressive list of mainstream artists he has produced, such as BeBe & CeCe Winans, DMX, Run DMC, Kanye West, Flo Rida, and the lists goes on. Among others, Tony Kelly’s Midas touch helped propel dancehall icon Shaggy’s ‘Hotshot’ album to diamond status. He also had a hand in Beenie Man’s ‘The Doctor’, ‘Art & Life’, ‘Back To Basics’, ‘Tropical Storm’ and Sean Paul’s ‘Like Glue’, for which he won a BMI Award as writer and publisher.
For almost three decades, Tony ‘CD’ Kelly has kept the dancehalls jumping with riddim after riddim. From the ‘Book Shelf’ & ‘Unda Wata’ riddims, to the ‘Buy Out’ riddim which spawned popular hits for many dancehall artists including Mr Vegas and the legendary Buju Banton.
The K..Licious team, under the direction of Tony Kelly, are doing things a little differently in 2012. The label has signed for the first time, four talented artists, three of whom will be making their debut on the ‘1st Quarter’ riddim. Siblings Malica & Atiba, Italis and Dre Zee have all signed to K..Licious Music.
The label’s songstress Malica, featured on the riddim, is telling it like it is with the self assured track, ‘Best He Ever Had’, a favorite amongst the confident divas. Italis, the artist who was once nicknamed Buju Kid for reasons which will be apparent shortly, explains people’s motivation with his single ‘Money’, while sing-jay Dre Zee is not a bit disappointed that his ‘Good Good Girl’ seem to have gone bad.
This riddim also features veteran dancehall hotshot Shaggy and newcomer Shaki, Beenie Man featuring Malica, Future Fambo, General Degree, Mystic, Denyque, and Notch.
The ‘1st Quarter’ riddim is full of vibes to say the least, but what else would one expect from Tony ‘CD’ Kelly!
