For a while now Di Genius has been strengthening his roots in the R&B genre, utilizing his innate attraction to elongated synths and languid melodies to interlock them with the “oh oh oh” choruses of singjays like Mavado and Nicky B. Two new releases from the young producer prove his adoration for the genre with continued musical collaborations from close friend Laden. The two singles, “Come Mek Me Touch You” and “She’s Getting Drunk (Moet)” offer Laden in the best light of his talents, the realm of the singjay.
It’s no mystery that Laden as a singjay has become a darling of sorts for the crossover of dancehall/R&B and he may continue to stay up top in this genre (see the most recent Mavado exploration). Laden, who has lingered on the periphery for a great while, despite the strength of singles like “Really Like You” and “My Love”, is expounding on Di Genius’ R&B explorations with these tracks and solidifying his footing as a Jamaican R&B singjay to be dealt with.
