Noted lyricist Sanjay and ace deejay Beenie Man have teamed up to drop a hot track called Piece A Di Wine. The dancehall song will be released at the Youth View Awards after party this Saturday February four and will also feature on iTunes shortly after.
Piece A Di Wine is another notch in Sanjay’s cap as he continues to release infectious songs that have become anthems on the ground. Sanjay hit it big in 2007 with Man Of My Word and has since consistently followed up with both dancehall and reggae numbers which have made him a perennial staple on the local music scene.
Piece A Di Wine is another in a slew of creditable collaborations by Sanjay who in 2002 debuted with Strictly Physical featuring Tami Chynn, a song which preceded collabs with Vybz Kartel, Cecile and Aidonia to name a few. Based on his lyrical talents and niche appeal Sanjay is able to pick from the crème de la crème of Jamaican artistes with which to collaborate. Now he adds this track with Beenie Man to his repertoire.
Piece A Di Wine was produced by Conroy from Washroom Entertainment for Sanjay’s Portland Cottage Productions. The track features Sanjay in his supreme lyrical element belting out lines such as: “Me have di thuggin, huggin, luvin weh she a bawl fi, So, come link up…gimme a small pree, Me mek you see the light, like dis a diwali”. With lyrics like that it’s no wonder Sanjay is rated as one of the top lyricists in the game and one who always has fans on edge expecting his next twist of metaphors.
Beenie Man on the other hand comes with his signature swagg; laying down confident lines that have endeared him to the dancehall masses for over two decades. The dancehall king heralds his arrival on the track by confessing: “Gal you see that text deh, me meant it, just the way me sent it, Gal the way you wine, gal you gimme the eccentric, You want a private-I so you called it, no small fit, Obey you thirst mek me quench it”. Beenie Man and Sanjay are a balanced combination of real dancehall flavour with lyrical dept on a solid Washroom beat.
Piece A Di Wine empathises Sanjay’s lyrical prowess and dexterity and also shows that the artiste continues to release relevant material for today’s dancehall audience. Sanjay believes that this song will be a club banger that will have dancehall fans moving: “I went lyrical on the last single, Harder They Fall and now I’m going back to the ladies! This song has all the elements to make for a dancehall party anthem… a infectious chorus, good lyrics, Beenie Man's swagg and star power and a hard hitting Washroom produced authentic dancehall riddim!! Ladies… just get ready FI WINE!"
Piece A Di Wine will premier in Jamaica on February four exclusively at the Youth View Awards after party to be staged at National Indoor Sports Arena.
