New York, February 16, 2008 – Reggae sensation Gyptian is tearing up one of the most important charts in Jamaica – the My Video Picks (MVP) TOP 10 countdown on RETV, coming in at #2 this week. Gyptian has been enjoying a new surge in popularity ever since the debut of the video a month ago. This is the first single from his upcoming album on VP Records, titled “I Can Feel Your Pain.”
The MVP TOP 10 chart is a coveted countdown because video positions are determined solely by viewers’ votes, making it similar to the TRL countdown on MTV. The video profiles one day in Gyptian’s life as an entertainer, and shows how he can “feel the pain” of his love interest. It was shot in New York and directed by Rhona Fox.
Gyptian now heads to Barbados this week, where he will shoot covers for two Caribbean magazines – Circuit and Shebo, and will meet with local media to premiere the video on that island.
