PORTMORE-BASED dancehall deejay Blass launched the music video for his latest single Wine Gyal at the Triple Century Sports Bar in New Kingston, on Thursday night.

"The song has been out for a while, with limited rotation locally and international," Blass told the Jamaica Observer.

However, the song, which focuses heavily on the familiar female gyrations in the dancehall scene, has had a strong enough response for a video. The song itself has an unusual genesis being based on the Avatar rhythm from Kenya-based Rebel Liberation Records.

"We connected via social media. They liked what I was doing and sent the rhythm for me to voice on," he explained.

His international aspirations don’t stop at Wine Gyal, as Blass has several other such collaborations on his résumé, combining with Russian songstress Bella for Whenever You Want and Spain’s Profecia Crew for Hustler’s Anthem.

With the video’s launch, Blass will be touring in Africa, Russia and Spain ahead of working on a soon-to- be released unnamed EP.
