DANCEHALL’S CHI CHING CHING
UNITES JAMAICA, GHANA, NIGERIA AND USA IN NEW VIDEO
VIBE.com Premieres The Visual to Chi Ching Ching’s International Anthem
Chi Ching Ching, one of dancehall’s biggest prospects, has his eyes set on world domination. Today, he drops his new video for “Rock Di World (Remix)” – an updated version of his 2017 dancehall anthem that features appearances by Stonebwoy, Patoranking and Fatman Scoop.
Dropping pins all over the map, Chi Ching Ching rallies hip-hop icon Fatman Scoop from the U.S., Stonebwoy from Ghana and Patoranking from Nigeria to put their spin on his song. Directed by Kieran Khan, the video was filmed in various locations. Chi Ching Ching and Stonebwoy linked in Kingston, Jamaica. Fatman Scoop’s part is filmed in Times Square, NYC and Patoranking shot his scene in London, England. The original track debuted in 2017, when it inaugurated Chi Ching Ching as the first signee to Sean Paul’s Dutty Rock label (distributed by DubShot Records).
The remix will also be featured on Ching’s 2018 debut album Turning Tables along with the original “Rock Di World,” which has already accumulated over a half-million video views, sparking a viral dance craze.
Chi Ching Ching says the remix “is an inspiration of a song, meant to bring unity and people together. My mission is to make people happy.”

He is the first artist signed to Dutty Rock Productions, the label owned and founded by multi-platinum music icon Sean Paul. The 6’7″ street dancer and lyricist became a popular face of Kingston’s residential party nights such as Early Mondays, Passa Passa, Weddy Weddy, Dutty Fridaze and Hot Monday. As his dance moves became popular, he eventually started recording songs. His debut “Lock Pon Di Ting” was released in 2014 followed by “Popcorn Pop.” In 2015, Chi Ching Ching forged a relationship with Popcaan’s Unruly Entertainment. The partnership led to some of Chi Ching Ching’s biggest tracks including “Kick Out,” “Get There,” “Way Up Stay Up (Remix)” ft. Beenie Man & Popcaan (rounding up 1m views) and his mega hit “Roast or Fry (Breadfruit)” (2.3m views). The Dutty Rock Productions team also gave Chi Ching Ching one of his first big breaks as an intro/outro cameo on the video for “Hit Em” by Farenheit featuring Sean Paul and Jigzagula. Chi Ching Ching collaborated on Sean Paul’s 2016 dance anthem “Crick Neck” (racking up over 10m views). In 2017, he toured toured non-stop with Sean Paul while working on singles like “Rock Di World” in preparation for his 2018 album launch.
