Hollywood actor and dancehall artiste Sample King is raising eyebrows with his new single, Jamdung Style, which is a take off of the international dance craze and hit, Gangnam Style.
"The reaction has been favourable, it is getting play at some dances, and I plan to shoot a video for it this month. I took out the original Gangnam Style, and I have a voiceover from a selector, and I kept Psy's original Gangnam Style because mi just love how him say it, him ting connect," Sample King said.
He has been aggressively distributing the single in the Corporate Area, and he hopes that local dancers will gravitate towards his song, even though there are at least four other Gangnam Style-influenced singles out there.
"I like the others, very creative but mi believe say mine ah go shot," he said confidently.
