After emerging this week’s winner on Jamaica’s ROOTS FM “What’s the Verdict”, a program where predominantly inner-city listeners vote from three contenders for the song they believe will be the next huge song in Jamaica, Anderson’s “Talk if Yuh Talking” is connecting with many in the streets. Anderson, who just released two singles from her new CD “The Introduction-Dubstyle EP” in is seeing the early fruits of her labor. Both singles “Talking if Yuh Talking” and “Shine on Jamaica” are making moves in different parts of the world.
With the video premiere for “Talk if Yuh Talking” on Entertainment Report last Friday as well as an interview on CVM’s Onstage, fans can’t get enough of the “drama” in the video and have been commenting on how true to life the subject matter of the song is. The video has since been added to the playlists of many local cable channels.
While “Talk if Yuh Talking” is gaining strength in Jamaica, Anderson is making moves on other international charts. “Shine On Jamaica” currently sits at #1 on both WAVS 1170 top 11 Charts as well as the South Florida Reggae Charts. The song is climbing at #5 on the South London Reggae charts and jumped three spots this week to #19 on the New York’s top 30 Reggae Charts.
Another collaboration (with Michael Franti & Spearhead), “Say Hey (I Love You), has found its way into heavy rotation on Sirius and XM radio, and fans can vote for the song on XM’s 20 on 20. The song is a constant on the listener picked countdown, which changes several times a day.
