Reggae music has achieved another milestone, and this time it’s thanks to Reggae star Collie Buddz. On the May 7th airing of VH1’s popular reality show, Basketball Wives, Collie’s song “I Feel So Good” was played, making it a first for the worlds’ popular genre!
Produced by ZJ Sparks for Twelve 9 Records and Dan Grossman and Michael Gore for Dynasty Music, the upbeat track grooves listeners with its use of synthesized trumpets, and playful Xylophone while Collie sings the addictive punch line “I feel so good, I don’t know what’s come over me!”
Set at the show’s closing scene, personalities Susan and Keisha can be seen bouncing to the track while they play in the water with the Dolphins in Tahiti as the song plays in the background. “I literally felt good when I got the news of the songs placement on the show” said Collie when reached by phone in Bermuda. “It’s nice to see Reggae profiled in such a big way!”
In Jamaica, ZJ Sparks and the Twelve 9 Records team celebrated “this is the first time a Reggae song has been featured on Basketball Wives. This is a first and a huge accomplishment,” said Sparks.
Popular social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook came to life as fans got the pleasant surprise while watching their favourite show. On ZJ Sparks’ timeline, fans tweeted to the producer “OMG!! Who else is super excited about Collie Buddz being featured on Basketball Wives tonight?!,” while fans on Collie’s timeline added “Hearing @CollieBuddz on Basketball wives was the best highlight for me tonight!”
