    New York-based reggae artiste Tega is generating a lot of attention on the club scene with her new single, ‘Two Wrongs’, featuring reggae star Singing Melody. The song is a remake of the 'Two Wrongs' hit song originally recorded by Wyclef Jean and Claudette Ortiz, a member of the Grammy nominated American R&B/hip hop trio City High, several years ago.  


“Basically I always loved the song and decided I wanted to do a dancehall remake of it. I contacted Jamaica's big bad songwriter/producer Patrick ‘Black Pearl’ Howell whom I've been working with to see what his  thoughts were about the idea and he loved it right away and wanted to co-produce the track with me,” she said.


Then one day, Black Pearl was in the studio one day with Singing Melody when Tega contacted him.


“I could hear Melody's voice in the back ground like he was laying down a track and right away I told Pearl that I wanted Singing Melody for the part. His voice was perfect for it. Singing Melody agreed and did a phenomenal job with it!” she said enthusiastically.


Tega raved about Singing Melody’s professionalism and his humility.


“ He was so humble and so easy to work with. He actually fell in love with the song too. Currently the song has been playing in NY, Canada, Boston, UK and has hit the dancehall parties in Jamaica, playing at a dance called Giveaway Wednesdays, the ting tun up right now,” she said.


The song was first premiered on 91.3 Parti Fm in NY by DJ Short Mike, and the response was immediate and overwhelming with the switchboard jammed with incoming calls to the station for a pull up. The single is generating at least 50 spins on major underground radio stations in New York each week.


“Other deejays began to pick it up after Parti FM premiered it, Frogg Squad in the UK, selectors in the Brooklyn and Bronx area began to play it. I know it is working because people are paying me for dubs, and now it is playing at events all over the New York  club scene, right now, I am moving to make a video to help promote the song because the feedback has been so incredible in such a short time,” she said.


Only released a month, the song has already become a sensation in the social media, with several links all over Facebook and Twitter.


“Right now, I am trying to ride this buzz by releasing another hot single in the first week of January 2013, and of course dancehall will be seeing me around a lot more often,”  Tega said.


Tega is known for singles such as "Can't Hold Me Down", "Damn" featuring Harry Toddler and the infamous "No Hotness" which caused controversy with another female artist back in 2008.
