Beenie Man - Dude CD [Empire]
Beenie Man - Dude
Beenie Man the Grammy award winning super mysoginist is back with another release off his latest LP, Tropical Storm, his tenth, which to date has shipped more than half a million units! It is somewhat surprising that someone who was once known for his illiberal attitude to chi chi men has been able to so totally put behind him any politically correct haters he may have had and progress to topping the charts with each new song. Either the public is shallow, or has short memories. For me I like to judge on the music its self and this Dave Kelly produced release is as nice as any of the others and has made big waves in the pop charts this side of the Atlantic. Again this release is a one track affair, the radio edit which features Ms. Thing at 3.34 is followed by the Remix which features Ms. Things and Shawnna who appears courtesy of Disturbing The Peace / Def Jam South.

This is solid, if unoriginal Jamaican Dancehall fair and gives one the images of summer soaked carnival sun that we yearn for in deepest winter in the UK. The steel band is meshed In response to Ms Thing’s somewhat annoying tones where she sings of her yearning for ‘a dude who’s a sweet-hearted man’, Beenie Man says what I suppose he thinks is appealing to the ladies offering her comments like, ‘You want to get some kicks, call me. You want a proper fix, call me. You want a remix, call me’. He definitely doesn't appeal to me, but to a gold digger this powerful take it or leave it statement could hit the right notes. On the remix Shawnna adds a tasty rap towards the end where she offers herself forth to Beenie in a typically subservient manner.

This is bound to be a bubbler in the local dance, but for me doesn't have the recent smooth appeal of Shaun Paul and upon repeated plays I have to say Ms. Thing is plain annoying. Dude has been number 1 in Jamaica and the remix of Dude appears on the Def Jamaica compilation. The Vinyl contains album version featuring Ms. Thing, remix featuring Ms. Thing & Shawna, instrumental and acappella versions.

You want a proper fix, call me,
