Taz is widely credited as the pioneer of Asian Fusion Music. He first hit the charts in 1989 with an album titled, Hit The Deck, which spent 39 weeks at number one on the UK Asian Pop Charts. In 2005, he won the “Best International Artiste” at the UK Asian Awards.
Mr. Vegas says he is very grateful for the opportunity to record with the Asian music superstar.
“This is a significant collaboration; it is the first time that a Dancehall music star and Asian music star have recorded together. I am very grateful for this opportunity. Recording with Taz will help me to infiltrate the Asian music market and establish my brand in that part of the world.”
Bollywood is scheduled to be the first of the two singles to be released.
“Bollywood will be out before the end of August, it is a great song, and I believe it has the potential to be a huge hit internationally. After it is released, we plan to go to India shoot a video for it.”
“A release date has not been set as yet for I’ve Pulled That Gal (Koree Fasgeyaee), but we are both looking forward to having it released before the end of the year. We also plan to shoot a video for it in Jamaica.”
Vegas explained how the collaboration came about.
"I was called by an international music executive who believed I would be the right Dancehall artiste for this project. Taz and his team are happy with the result, my team and I are also happy. Right now we are making plans to do an album together."
Vegas has also collaborated with other international music stars including American Pop Music Queen Beyoncé and Hip Hop star Pitbull.
