NIP Chart Update June 13th, 2011
(Kingston, Jamaica) Well folks last week we reported that many of the tracks/singles we’ve been tracking on the various reggae/dancehall charts over the past months have fallen off. Understandably so because the artistes have channeled their focus on launching their summer songs hence, it will be interesting to see which song dominates summer 2011. Having said that we are seeing already, some controversial issues surface surrounding our very own International Female Rapper/DJ for 2011 Macka Diamond’s Cow Foot track. The song seems to be growing rapidly in popularity in the local dancehall despite some negative criticisms meted out by other artistes and key persons in the local industry. Follow this one closely folks it says a lot about what some Dancehall fans like or dislike, could ‘Cow Foot” rule the Dancehall this summer? Uummh!!
Cow Foot Video Hits Number 1!
Macka Diamond controversial Cow Foot single seems to be booming in the face of adversity. This week the video for the song is #1 on local FIWI Choice Top Ten Chart aired weekly on CVM Television positions are determined by the number of votes. Cow Foot has become a dance crave in the dancehall, a move created by popular Dancer Shelly Belly. The video also entered and holds the #10 spot on Video Alley Top Ten chart. On the music charts, Cow Foot is #9 on Stampede Street Chart while making its way on Toronto’s Radio Dubplate Hot Singles List, Blazing Bubblers Rising To The Top @#4.

It is currently receiving steady rotation on almost all radio stations; the and sexy, lovers rock single by Sophia Squire has been on Stampede Street Chart for a number of weeks and has hit the Jamaica Music Countdown Top 25 Reggae Singles Chart over the weekend and holds the #24 spot.
