Mr."Heads High"Vegas reached the pole-position in NM for the first time in almost 4 years. His extra-catchy "Tamale" has gone beyond being exclusively popular with the ladies and finally toppled the Beenie Man/Miss Thing combination. On March 27th I will interview this dancehall star on Reggae Runnins Radio in Santa Fe, NM, 90.7fm KSFR, around 8:30pm Mountain Time. I will also air the interview on KUNM, which is online. I'll keep y'all posted, so outta towners can check it too. Vegas just signed a contract with hip-hop label Delicious Vinyl, which has already resulted in his tune "Pull Up" (on the COOLIE DANCE) getting decent rotation on commercial hip-hop/r&b (including KISS fm in Albuquerque) radio-stations. On top of that US-artist Pitbull pretty much ripped off Vegas' melody and re-did the tune in Spanish (apparently without his permission), which is also running up & down the airwaves. "Pull Up" is just barely bubbling under this chart.
Other than that, the charts are split into two halves this time around. While not much has changed in the top half, where Dave Kelly's FIESTA and Big Yard's SALSA still run tings, a number of new entries managed to get into the bottom one. Internationally extremely popular tunes as Tanya Stephen's "It's A Pity", Natty King's "Don't Bring Your Guns To Town", and TOK's "Gal U A Lead" finally reached our mountains. Cobra charts on the COOLIE DANCE with the hardcore "Wuk Dat", while two different (various riddims) selections from the Penthouse label represent the rootical-tip this time around with artists as Tony Rebel, Nicky Burt & Assassin. Just saw that more tunes are out on that massive 2 Miles riddim (Natty King) with Capleton & others. Oughta be good.

Jah bless,
