Brand New Visuals Off The Master Blaster Album

Originally recorded for Sugar Minott’s Youth Promotion label, “Lots of Sign” was one of those extra-special tracks that made Tenor Saw a legend of Jamaican Music. The song’s timeless message, encouraging listeners to “face reality all the time,” inspired producer and engineer extraordinaire Colin “Bulby York” to update the tune on his recent Master Blaster project. “It was an honor get Chris and Beenie Man to rework this Tenor Saw classic,” says Bulby who blesses the Boomshots massive with today’s exclusive premiere. “Now the video will document the vibes for eternity.” Having worked with many of the legends of Jamaican music—as well as international acts like Chaka Khan, No Doubt, and Rihanna—Bulby chose Christopher Martin for the lead vocal. “When I was first contacted, it was awesome to receive that call,” says Martin, “and then it was incredible to find out that Beenie Man was included on it.” The Doctor offered a similar diagnosis of the process: “Working with Bulby is always magic—mi longtime friend,” says Beenie. “Is like Chris ah mi bredda. We just show up and boom! It done. One take. Laughs and vibes.” As for the video itself? Martin describes the shoot as “effortless,” adding that “the final product really tied everything together. Now I’m just looking forward to people watching it and loving it as much as I do.” Video After The Jump…

“It was important for the visuals to capture the weight of the message in the song,” says Steven Bernard of Cinema Gods, who co-directed with Sadiki Thompson Robin. “We also got some great performances out of the artists and our choreographer Orville ‘Expressionz’ Hall.”

Orville was sourced via the #lotsofsigns social media skank challenge that Bulby hosted when the Master Blaster album dropped. When he turned up on the video set, he received a lesson from the King of the Dancehall himself. “Nuh see mi and Orville haffi show dem how skanking a gwaan a dancehall!”
