Mystic Davis

Mystic joins forces with Major Lazer, Tyga and Bruno Mars on ‘Bubble Butt’

 

Mystic DavisMultiple award-winning dancer, Mystic Davis has landed her most notable singing effort to date after collaborating with three international stars for a sultry new single, “Bubble Butt.

Mystic joined forces with notable hit making group, Major Lazer for “Bubble Butt,” which will feature on Major Lazer’s new album, Free The Universe. The finished track was sent to her on her birthday, featuring the additions of prominent singer, Bruno Mars and Young Money Cash Money Billionaires (YMCMB) rapper, Tyga.

The song was released in mid-April and gained exposure thanks to American rapper, 2 Chainz, who played the song at Coachella to mass approval.

“I met Diplo (Major Lazer) two years ago, at Geejam with Timberlee and we kind of hit it off from there,” Mystic explained during an IRIE FM interview. “He liked my sound and we decided to record a couple things at first; samples. Last year, he sent me a Riddim and I wrote to it, recorded the track and sent it back and then, he had sent it back to me and I heard Tyga on the track and found out that the chorus was done by Bruno Mars.”

The prominent dancer/choreographer believes “Bubble Butt” could be the breakthrough hit she has been praying for and plans to release a video for the single in the near future.

In the past, Mystic has scored musically through her collaboration with Leftside, “Want Yuh Body,” while also releasing singles such as the Tony Kelly-produced, You and I as well as Wine Up (Blaqk Sheep Music).

Bogle Dancehall

Bogle inspires a generation: A look at Jamaica’s most influential dancers

48 years ago yesterday, one of Dancehall’s patriarchs was born as Gerald ‘Bogle’ Levy began his journey towards becoming Jamaica’s most decorated dancer.

Though controversy surrounded his life, Bogle graced the world with his slick moves, undeterred ego as well as an ability to wow a crowd at every turn with his feet. The works of Bogle as well as the original Dancehall Queen, Carlene (who deserves a very honorable mention for this list) works are instrumental in creating a clear avenue for Dancehall to travel through as their knack for entertaining audiences sparked a movement that has gradually grown since they rose to stardom in the early 90s.

With several dance crews including Shady Squad, Ravers Clavers, Dance Xpressionz and Sample Six infiltrating sessions and events worldwide, Bogle also paved the way for many individual talents to continue carrying out his work, even after his untimely death in 2005.

Taking that fact into consideration here are nine other individual dancers who’ve shaped the foundation of Dancehall music and who are deserving of credit for sparking interest within the genre in their own ways.

10. Kim Versatile: Known for her appearances in videos such as Hot Like We (Ce’Cile) and Gallis (Mr. Vegas), Kimiko ‘Kim Versatile’ Miller hasn’t looked back since earning a runner-up spot on the popular Dancing Dynamites show in 2007. Hailing as an Edna Manley College and Ardenne High School alumnus, Kim Versatile has been leading the new wave of dancers in recent years and living up to her moniker through a borage of intriguing costumes as well as her undeniable flexibility.

A popular choreographer in her own right, Kim Versatile boasts a very accomplished resume’, working with several other Dancehall/Reggae superstars such as Vybz Kartel, Voicemail, Cherine Anderson, Beres Hammond and rap superstar, Sean Kingston to name a few. With so many accomplishments at such a young age, Kim Versatile’s potential continues to skyrocket.

9. Keiva The Diva: Perhaps the first female dancer to gain mainstream recognition within Dancehall circles was Keiva ‘The Diva’ Hibbert; popping on several television screens when she appeared in Elephant Man’s classic video for Log On. Keiva became a fixture in Elephant Man’s videos and, despite boasting a very slim figure, her range in motion made her a must-see dancer in the early 2000s, culminating in winning the title of Dancehall Queen in 2003

Keiva has seemingly shied away from the spotlight ever since word broke in 2009 that she was pregnant. However, motherhood hasn’t stopped Keiva from performing and has even tested recording waters.

8. Ice – Though branded as a troublemaker throughout his career, no one could question Ice as a vaunted dancer.

Ice created several dance moves while a member of the Black Roses Crew, where Bogle also featured. Despite a somewhat marked reputation, Ice became famous for inventing the Gully Creepa dance in 2008, a move that Usain Bolt also popularized during his exploits in Beijing.

As a result, big things seemed in store for Ice’s career. However, like Bogle and Black Roses founder, Willie Haggart before him, Ice was gunned down as he hung out on Boxing Day at a bar in Kingston, preventing him from reaching his full potential as an elite dancer.

Top 10: Jamaican music industry’s sexiest female personalities

To leave an indelible mark within the Dancehall/Reggae industry, you not only have to showcase outright skill and determination but also have some amount of sex appeal.

The combination of a delightful personality, sharp intellect and attractive figure allows females who ply their trade within the local music industry to build strong fan bases while acclimating deserved accolades. From artistes to media personalities and even dancers, the Dancehall/Reggae industry has produced several females who’ve embodied said sentiments. Ten in particular currently personify those qualities; acquiring mass popularity in the process.

10. Mystic Davis: Dancers are wholeheartedly unappreciated within the Dancehall/Reggae framework as they’re considered as the background in many music videos. However, Mystic Davis possibly defies that logic. With unbelievable flexibility showcased throughout her craft and an hourglass shape to match, Davis hails as arguably the most popular dancer in Jamaica and possibly the Caribbean.

With videos such as Vybz Kartel’s Go Go Wine, Sean Kingston and Nicki Minaj’s Letting Go and several others on her resume, Davis stands out in ways which many other dancers would become side elements. Plus, if you’ve ever watched her perform live in short shorts, you’d see why.

 

 

 

9. D’Angel: Despite a turbulent six months that included her divorce from Beenie Man, model turned Dancehall artiste, D’Angel still continues to prove that she’s one of the genre’s sexiest divas. Songs such as Blaze, Come Over amongst others have showcased that fusion of made-for-runway looks as well as lyrical dexterity, making her one of Dancehall’s most respected acts.

Though she did lose some popularity amongst fans since the divorce, she still hasn’t lost the qualities which made her attractive since her debut in 2005: Independence, beauty and intellect, all of which make her an interesting catch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8. Tiana – Perhaps the fastest rising female artiste in quite some time, Tiana not only made herself relevant within the Dancehall ranks, she asserted a strong presence in the industry. She made no stronger announcement as a potential superstar than with the release of Pum Pum Phat, a remake of Popcaan’s chart-topping smash, Ravin’. The risqué single showcased a hardcore, sexually appeasing side of the self-proclaimed “Princess of Dancehall” that fans never saw previously, making this curvaceous diva a household name.

Additionally, an unheard of 11 videos including Bruk Out and Whine and Gyal Mi Luv Yuh (featuring Konshens) as well her intellect; shown while making a defiant stance against what she described a ‘sexist’ music industry labeled her as a very reputable force. A deejay of the year candidate and upcoming superstar, her resume seemingly could include several more accolades going forward.

 

 

 

7. Pepita Little: Though currently out of a job after her recent release from the Television Jamaica (TVJ) show, Intense, it’s inconceivable to think that Pepita Little aka Chica Pepita won’t find her way back onto everyone’s television screen sooner rather than later.

For three years, her bubbly personality, easy-going approach to her hosting duties and a bust line that’s hard to ignore made her a popular figure within the industry. Additionally, she served as a backstage host on Digicel Rising Stars and copped a Youth View Awards nomination for Media Personality of the Year.

Despite her recent setback, Pepita has returned to spotlight in strong fashion with the release of her highly acclaimed debut single, Luv Luv Me. Given her versatility there’s no doubt that this is only the beginning of Pepita’s journey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Timberlee: Sexy in two different personalities, posh and gangstress, Timberlee attracts several eyes and ears with her sultry vocals and class-personified physical attributes. Both personalities were on full display during her single on the female-dominated Bedroom Riddim with the single, Inna Mi Bedroom.

A shape to behold with confidence displayed in several singles such as Bubble Like Soup and Heels, Timberlee remains a sex symbol with her crafty word play and accompanying physical attributes.

 

 

 

5. Stacious: Similar to Timberlee, Stacious’ thought-provoking physique makes her easily identifiable figure within the local music industry. Often known for her pulsating singles and racy dressing in videos, Stacious earned comparisons to the “Queen of Dancehall,” Lady Saw, who rose to prominence for similar antics.

Additionally, Stacious’ lyrics back up said comparison as past singles such as Goodaz Clap and Make It Snappy as well as more recent singles like Come Into My Room (alongside Mavado) and Got It Like That.

 

 

 

4. Tifa: Perhaps the best at her musical craft amongst females, Tifa continues to dazzle fans, male and female, with her strong physical attributes while continuing to unleash smash hits. As her videos for Move Yuh Body and Get Flat proved last year, Tifa has a unique, classy fashion sense. Combine that with her no-holds barred lyrical display, and this prominent diva has stamped her authority on the Jamaican music framework.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Ce’Cile: It’s hard to believe that Ce’Cile has been in the mainstream spotlight for over ten years now as she seemingly hasn’t aged. An obviously attractive and sensual persona made the singjay one of Jamaica’s musical stalwarts.

Never afraid to show off her smooth skin, Ce’Cile embraced the sex symbol status with videos like Hot Like We, Hot Like That and several others. Permanent eye candy in her own right, she continues to stay relevant within an ever changing Jamaican music framework; recently releasing the highly acclaimed album, Jamaicanization.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Tami Chynn: Dancehall singjay, Wayne Marshall must feel like the luckiest man on Earth as he has the sensual songstress, Tami Chynn to proudly boast as his wife. Chynn never ceases to amaze onlookers with her natural beauty and heartwarming vocals.

Classic songs such as Over and Over, Hyperventilating and Certified Diva, featuring the aforementioned Tifa, had fans locked into her presence. An effervescent sense of style, class and wit made Chynn a very lovable figure. A musician, host or a part-time charity worker, Chynn’s place as an internationally-regarded superstar will forever remain. Plus, as she proved with Neva Know, she has some spice to her also.

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Yanique Barrett: Jamaican music fans have only known her for a short time, but certainly there’s a long list of men who’ve surely kept this media personality on their watch.Debuting as host of Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall in March 2011, Yanique Barrett quickly won over fans of the highly regarded talent show with her curvaceous figure, outgoing personality and several sexy dance moves. Now earning strong acclaim for her strong work and intellect, Barrett continues to spread her wings as a host/presenter as she also co-hosts E-Blaze on FAME FM as well as RETV 5 to 7 Live.The only sad part about this young starlet, for her male fans anyway, is that she’s already married. If you listen closely, the collective sighs from men can be heard worldwide.

Mystic aims to create more magic in 2012

Prominent Jamaican dancer and emerging artiste, Mystic Davis hopes to continue her magical run within the local and international entertainment scene.

The daughter of veteran Reggae star, Joy White, Mystic has established her own legacy as an all-rounded performance artiste. She’s already starred in several music videos for internationally-acclaimed artistes such as Gnarls Barkley (Going On), Miike Snow (The Rabbit), Sean Kingston & Nicki Minaj (Dutty Love) as well as Vybz Kartel (Go Go Wine) to name a few.. Additionally, she’s performed during on stage performances from international figures such as hip-hop superstar, Ludacris, Ruff Ryders first lady, Eve and even taught World Record holding/Olympic Gold medal winning sprinter, Usain Bolt a few dance moves.

In addition to her music video resume, the Portland native stamped her authority as a deejay in 2010; starring alongside prominent veteran deejay, Macka Diamond as well as top-draw disc jock, ZJ Sparks, amongst othersfor the female empowerment anthem, Too Much Bull. However, it was when Mystic joined forces with Dancehall singjay, Leftside for the pulsating remix of their chart-topping collaborative single, Want Yuh Body.

The remix made her a reputable force as an artiste; showing lyrical dexterity that few young artistes consistently display.

Already in 2012, Mystic featured on the third edition of the highly regarded Shaggy and Friends charity event and won her third consecutive Youth View award for Best Female Dancer earlier this month; adding to previous accolades, including the HYPETV Award for Best Female Dancer. Currently, she’s nominated in the Female Dancer of the Year category for the 3rd annual Carivibez Video Web Awards.

Additionally, flexibility and visibility showcased on a regular basis through her dancing exploits, plus sultry looks to match copped Mystic a top 10 spot on a recent list of the Jamaican Music Industry’s Sexiest Female Personalities, co-compiled by DancehallUSA.com and Examiner.com. The popular entertainer also continues to build her name overseas as she recently travelled to South America.

Musically, Mystic is now a part of legendary, Grammy-winning producer, Tony ‘CD’ Kelly’s K-Licious record label, which features fellow emerging artistes such as Dre Zee and Malica Martin. Kelly’s upcoming production, the 1st Quarters Riddim, will feature work from Mystic also.

She accredits much of her mainstream success as a musician, in part, to Germaine ‘Mafia McKoy’ Clarke, more popularly known as Blaqk Sheep, who was thefirst producer to instill his faith in her and voice her. Clarke produced Too Much Bull as well as her first solo single, Wine Up in 2011.

With such an accomplished resume’ in her early 20s, there’s certainly a natural Mystic glowing through the air with this breakthrough talent.
