Double X aims at the femalesSaturday, May 14, 2016
DOUBLE X, formerly Flexx from dancehall quartet TOK, is enjoying his new-found status as a solo artiste with his latest single Done Mi Money.
The singjay shared the inspiration behind the track.
"I felt that it was now the right time to release it and give di girls dem something to dance to. Mi love see di woman dem move dem body. The dancehall space is not only a place to unwind and have fun, but it is also a competitive space where dancers such as Sher, Nickeisha and Dance Expressions show their ‘wining’ skills and prowess. The melody of the song is catchy and added with the lyrics, every girl will definitely be dancing to this one," said Double X.
"It has the potential to be a huge dancehall hit for summer and beyond, because it’s a sexy song geared towards the females and will definitely have them dancing," he continued.
Released a month ago, Done Mi Money is produced by Star Player Music Group and is accompanied by an impressive music video directed by Island Cinema.
He said branching out came with its challenges.
At first it was a little challenging because I didn’t know how people would react to my new journey, but I must say that I’ve been getting a lot of support and respect from the fans and the media," he told the Jamaica Observer.
Double X said he’s planning an international campaign with several upcoming independent projects.
"So much is in the pipeline for Double X. I have more singles to be released, a new rhythm juggling called Tropics, which will feature a collaboration with Safaree, a new reality show, and an album to be released by the end of the year," Double X said.
Started in 1996, Double X (given name Xavier Davidson) was part of the dancehall quartet TOK which comprised Alistaire "Alex" McCalla, Roshaun "Bay-C" Clarke, and Craig "Craigy T" Thompson. They were best known for such hits including Footprints, Gal You Ah Lead, Chi Chi Man and Eagles Cry. The group disbanded in 2015.
