PON DI SIDE
Tanya Stephens plays the roles of both wife and matey in “Pon Di Side’
Jamaican lyricist Tanya Stephens has released yet another gem from the ‘Guilty’ Album project, her latest commercial effort. The song is entitled ‘Pon Di Side’ and is the fourth single to garner the required attention from the artiste and subsequently an accompanying video.
The ‘Pon Di Side’ single showcases a couple falling into the rudimentary relationship motions over time and then indulge in a bit of role playing to spice up their marriage.
The video was shot on Location at Villa Mistral in St. John, US Virgin Islands by the team from the St John and St Thomas islands; Directors Dwight Winston, Rashad Martinez and Sean David and Produces Forever Kings, Sdot and Digitak Films.
Tanya had high praises for the entire team who organized and executed the video shoot at a moment’s notice and proved to be professional, resourceful and extremely creative. Tanya also loved the idea of shooting the video in this particular Caribbean island.
“I feel really lucky to be from the Caribbean. Shooting in St. John was an awesome reminder of the beauty of our extended neighborhood, and the experience was made even better by work attitudes and personalities of the crew. Tanya reasoned “Long term relationships run the risk of becoming routine and boring but it’s ridiculous to condemn a good thing simply because you lack excitement. In ‘Pon Di Side’ I suggest couples do to each other whatever an outsider would do in a fling, do it like someone ‘pon di side’ ” She added.
Tanya recently returned from a short ‘Guilty’ Album promotional run to a few states in the US and parts of the Caribbean. The Guilty Album is her first Commercial release since her 2007 album ‘Rebelution’. She will be heading out again for a Summer European Tour experience in July and August.
