Two Legends Link Jamaican music legend, Buju Banton has teamed up with yet another ‘Legend’ to deliver the seductive and sexy new tune, “Can’t Be My Lover.”
The steamy track, which will be the bonus cut on the platinum-selling artist/producer, John Legend’s forthcoming album, Evolver, has been described as “a Reggae- tinged track that has Legend resisting the charms of a relentless seductress.”
Already making the rounds online, “Can’t Be My Lover” was produced by the Jamaican hit- maker, Supa Dups (of Black Chiney Sound), who has worked with the likes of Beenie Man, Reggaeton superstar, Pitbull, Sean Paul and Legend’s UK protégé on his own HomeSchool records, Estelle. The album is slated to be in stores on Oct. 20th in the UK and Oct 28th in the US.
The Banton is presently riding the Jamaican charts with two more distinctly different hits: “Water Man” released on TJ Records and “Sleepless Nights” for the Don Corleon label. The sweltering “Water Man” track sits at #13 on Hot 102 FM disc jock, Richie B’s Top 20 Dancehall Singles. Also bubbling on Hot 102’s Top 10 Albums Chart, is Buju Banton Presents: Jamrock Classics Volume 1. The Gargamel- produced compilation has been on the chart for three weeks, climbing up two spots this week to the #7 position.
Buju has also been slowly moving up the Hype TV Top 20 Singles Chart, since debuting on the chart three weeks ago with “Sleepless Nights,” now at #17. Meanwhile, on RETV’s Top 20 Reggae Chart, “Sleepless Nights,” has already skyrocketed to the #3 position. Likewise, “Water Man” is chilling at #4 on RETV’s Top 20 Dancehall Chart.
