The Jamaican sensation, Trudy (TruDiva) recently released her single, "Party All Night (Booty Dance)" produced by Jamaican hitmaker Christopher Birch. The song's impact has been felt in a big way both in Jamaica and abroad.

. In the USA, the song has garnered plays on the prestigious KIIS-Los Angeles' New Music show as well as key radio stations in several other major
US cities including Miami, Phoenix, Houston, Long Island, and New York just to name a few. Legendary DJ Sir Charles Dixon describes the record as, "Beyoncé – “Single Ladies” meets Rihanna – “Pon De Replay” but with a vibe all its own."

The expansive Hispanic market has adopted "Party All Night (Booty Dance)" with a Sabor remix by
actress and rapper Filly Brown and Latino singer Medicine Girl. The song will be airing in heavy
rotation on both the Pocos Pero Locos and Subelo Radio Networks, which includes 30 radio stations in
major U.S. cities such as New York, Chicago, Miami, and San Antonio. To further promote the song,
Filly Brown's recent eponymous film will be internationally released later this year. Pocos Pero Locos’
Khool Aid says, “The song crosses boundaries, cultures, and countries and connects with the world in
a language that everyone can relate to – DANCE!”

Back in Jamaica, mega-superstar Elephant Man heard the song and loved it so much, he decided to
jump on a remix that is now blazing the airwaves all over the island and throughout the Caribbean.
The buzz around “Party All Night (Booty Dance)” has become so massive that local Jamaican
powerhouse radio station IRIE FM along with Hype TV will be covering an open call dance audition to
the song scheduled for Friday, July 15th at the Lime Light Night Club in Half Way Tree, Kingston from
12 Noon to 6 PM. The top 2 dancers or dance groups showcasing their best choreographed or
freestyle routine to "Party All Night (Booty Dance)" will have a dance competition on the main stage of
Reggae Sumfest on Saturday, July 23rd. This contest is open to the public and aspiring dance groups
or dancers may register for the contest by submitting their video dance interpretation at and earn a guaranteed audition spot on July 15th. Additionally, a select number
of dancers or dance groups may register in person prior to the open call located at 5-7 Hagley Park
Road at the Half Way Tree Entertainment Complex. The winning dancer(s) will get to be featured in
the "Party All Night (Booty Dance)" music video and receive $50,000 (JMD) plus a Blackberry Torch.
The 2nd place winner(s) gets $15,000 (JMD), and the 3rd place winner(s) receives $10,000 (JMD).
Asked about gracing the stage at Sumfest 2011, Trudy says, "I can't wait. Performing on the Sumfest
stage and seeing the best dancers in Jamaica choreograph a routine to my song Party All Night is
going to be amazing!"

Hailing from Clarendon parish in Jamaica, Trudy (TruDiva) has been penned by many as the next
major commercial act breaking out of the Caribbean. Her record company, Oceanic Tradewinds Music,
is fielding distribution offers, not just from the USA, but also from Japan and Europe. Trudy's next
single, "Getaway" is produced by Demarco and is being remixed in Los Angeles, California and
scheduled for release in the Fall. Rumors are already swirling about potential features on that record.
