Busy Signal, “Jafrican Ting”

6 Feb

Busy Signal’s new “Jafrican Ting” track isn’t his first venture into the world of African beats. Baring resemblence to last years “Up In her Belly,” which made waves at every dancehall party across the dusty corners of Jamaica, Busy has fine tuned his skill of extending dancehall past its limits to make something refreshingly dance worthy. In a breathy series of “oh la la’s” Busy lets his listener fill in the blanks for “Jafrican Ting,” where “oh la la, in de garage” could just as easily mean sexing as it could hammering a nail in… although they’re pretty much the same thing. Get the track here (via Cribbean Media Galaxy). Also take a peep at his vaguely Mad Decent sounding collaboration with M.I.A., “Sound of Siren” from the Hot Head Turf mixtape.
