Kingston, Jamaica — January 2008 – "Tek Weh Yuh Self," the anthem that created a frenzy in the Dancehalls, is back with a vengeance. This time around, the unconquerable Mr. Vegas has joined forces with Hip Hop Queen Lil’ Kim and Latin singing sensation Kat Deluna to unleash the song’s fiery remix "Tek Weh Yuhself Again."
The remix has been transformed into a multicultural fusion of hip hop, soca, and dancehall, with a dash of Spanish flavor. "Incorporating the eclectic musical styles of Lil’ Kim and Kat Deluna yields a perfect blend," Mr. Vegas said with enthusiasm. "Their strong presence makes this remix a perfect cross over hit –destined to rock the dance floor and the music industry on a whole."
The collaboration came about through the initiative of Mr. Cee of New York’s famed Hot 97 radio station. Both international recording artistes Kim and Kat were extremely excited to work on the project, passionately adding extra verses that they thought would bring the ‘fire.’
Kat Deluna is no stranger to collaborating with Dancehall artists, as she teamed up with Elephant Man in 2007 to create her hit single "Whine Up." The song ultimately reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart. Hip Hop veteran Lil’ Kim has also been a notable hit maker over the years and is an avid dancehall and reggae fan – often integrating their elements into her music.
Everyone on Mr. Vegas’ team is thrilled about the remix and its possibilities. "The remix is catchy and comes with a whole heap of vibes," added Vegas.
"Tek Weh Yuhself Again," which was recorded in New York, has already experienced some buzz and will soon be heard on airwaves throughout the Caribbean and U.S. A music video for the sizzlin’ track is in the works and should be released in early 2008.
The single "Hot Wuk," from Mr. Vegas’ latest album Hot It Up, gained tremendousinternational airplay, reaching as far as #58 on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs Billboard Chart. There is no do doubt that this remix will exceed expectations.
