The common themes of money and man footing the expenses just since are played out in Pay back For It, but there is really very little normal about this creatively packaged dancehall tune. Konshens, the artiste who “gyal pickiney” definitely appreciate to adore, tickles their fancy nevertheless again as he groups up with Queen of the Dancehall Spice for a track that sees them both equally going similarly tricky with passion, melody, lyrics, flow and ‘flava’.
Konshens rightly describes the Rvssian-created one, Fork out For It, as a dancehall ballad, but even far more than that, it is as refreshing as drinking a neat jelly on a hot day. To use a substantially-repeated tome: It is the collab we under no circumstances understood we desired.
“When people see Konshens and Spice, dem nah anticipate a tune like this. Me and Rvssian made a decision we required to get a single ah dem dancehall ballad deh. If you examine all the dancehall songs that attain throughout the world, [they] have a pleasant, melodic hook, and then you go into the verse and give them the reliable dancehall deejaying,” Konshens claimed.
It’s sweet to listen to the renowned gyallis committing to spend all his funds on this 1 woman, who originally rebuffs him for the reason that girlfriend has her ‘owna’ funds. “Mi like whe yuh counsel permit yuh income be my visitor, but mi have mi owna cash just cannot count in excess.”
But he is undaunted, and the lyrics circulation like “rylics” over a breezy, summery beat that retains the listener swaying and mesmerised.
Extra to the package deal is the accompanying Xtreme Arts-directed Spend For It tunes video, established in a coaster bus plying the 50 %-Way Tree to Downtown route. Konshens performs the quintessential ‘ducta – in uniform with a kerchief tied all over his head – and, of system, he is so occupied down in the ears of a scorching woman passenger that he at times forgets that he is supposed to be watching the highway for potential travellers. It is a ponder the driver did not connect with him out.
But when he does his task, he’s genuine. The video clip opens with an aerial shot of the Transport Centre in 50 percent-Way Tree and, as the coaster cruises alongside, out jumps the ‘ducta with the common chant, “Half-Way Tree, Cross Streets, Town … City infant?”
And then he eyes Skip Refined, and the chemistry among them is instantaneous and sets itself up for a memorable trip right until she realises that she is on the erroneous bus. Ah bwoy, a different day in the everyday living of a ‘ducta.
