Reggae/Dancehall News Weekend

Ce'Cile and Mr. Vegas 'Mash Up The Place' soca style
It's soca season and Ce'Cile and Mr. Vegas, two of Jamaica's most successful dancehall artistes have teamed up to release what is expected to be one of the hottest tracks this soca season entitled, 'Mash Up the Place.'  The track was produced by Studio 758 out of St. Lucia and Mr. Vegas's own MV Music and hit the streets this week. 

Mash Up The Place is a catchy, hybrid dancehall/soca song featuring Ce'Cile's sexy sounds and the gritty vibe of Mr. Vegas.  This is the first time both artistes have worked together on a project despite their many years of friendship and according to Mr. Vegas, "the song is something different as I have never collaborated with a female dancehall artiste before."

Ce'Cile on the other hand is also excited about working with Mr. Vegas saying, "I love this song.  It is very different from what my fans are use to but it will definitely have them dancing this soca season."  She went on to explain how Mr. Vegas encouraged her saying he told her to, "do it this way and I was happy to just follow his lead as he has a knack for up tempo hit tracks, they always work."

This is the second soca track from Mr. Vegas this year; his first, Shock Dem, has been doing well in the Caribbean and United States.  Mr. Vegas is still on the dancehall scene however with Give It To Har and Come Here Bubble along with his latest reggae effort Love Yourself are all doing well.

Ce'Cile has also been hot on the radio with several dancehall tunes making the rounds such as No Gyal and Regular.  One the reggae side she has been promoting Got Me Hooked and Third Finger
