New York: – Dollarman, writer, artiste and producer, well known on the Brooklyn Reggae music scene, has struck Gold in Belgium with “Rock This Party (Everybody Dance Now)” produced by French DJ and producer Bob Sinclair (also known as Chris Lefriant) and Cutee B. Dollarman is the featured Dancehall artiste on the track and is accompanied by Naomi Goulbourne and Big Ali and samples the massive 1990s hit “Gonna Make You Sweat”, by C+C Music Factory.
“Rock This Party (Everybody Dance Now)” was released as the third major single off Sinclair’s new album “Western Dreams” released on the Tommy Boy Label. While the genre of the track is said to be a mixture of House and Pop, Dollarman brings a Dancehall flavour to the mix.
“Rock This Party (Everybody Dance Now)” has already gone Gold in Belgium and has peaked at #1 on the Belgium and Czech Dance Charts, #3 on the UK Official Singles Charts, #8 on the Billboard – Dance Music Air Play Charts and #17 on the World Singles Charts. The track has been on the United World Chart for 13 weeks and is currently #29. The United World Chart is a worldwide chart issued every week by Media Traffic, using both sales (digital and physical) and airplay to determine the most popular albums and singles in “the world”.
The music video features 3 kids who “perform” the song as 50 Cent, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, along with other stylised performances as John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, and The Beatles. The video also includes parodies of other popular music videos such as “Cry Me a River” (Justin Timberlake) and “Thriller” (Michael Jackson).
On October 14, Dollarman performed live with Bob Sinclair and Cutee B at the 2006 MTV Europe TMF (The Music Factory) Awards held at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam which was broadcast live on the MTV TMF Channel. There he received a Gold plaque at the Award Ceremony.
In September Dollarman completed recording of another track with Bob Sinclair and Cutee B “Let Yourself Free” set to be released early 2007. “Let yourself free” samples the 1991 hit “Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good)” by Rozalla.
Working with House Music producer, Bob Sinclair, opened Dollarman’s eyes to a whole new genre of music and has helped him successfully crossover to a different market, introducing Dancehall to a brand new audience. The Ryff Music group, based in New York, currently manages Dollarman.
