In times like these, one needs to celebrate the successes of the children of the soil. We must note especially the accomplishments of those who hail from areas not remembered for having produced some of the country's greats.
The Trinidad Express reports that Fireball, SynergyTV Soca Star champion and Laventille son, is heating up the European dance scene with a remix of his Carnival 2007 hit, "What I Want". It is written that the song is the top track on European dance charts after one week of official release.
With new production work by renowned French deejay Bob Sinclair (1, 2), the track is being marketed under Sinclair's Yellow Productions label, and is included on the deejay's May 2007 album, "Soundz of Freedom". While the bassline and the speed of the track have changed some to suit the european dance scene, Fireball's falsetto vocals remain unmistakable.
The Express has all the details, but the video is right here, courtesy of Bob Sinclair and Youtube.
Congrats to we boy, Rohan Richards aka Fireball.
