When IRIE FM disc jockey Big A pulled up Anthony Cruz's racy single, 'Mother And Daughter' ten times last week, the reggae crooner knew that hehad a hit single on his hands.
The singer's BlackBerry went berserk, with constant pings and calls for the next couple of hours,
"Mi phone blow up the whole day, crazy people from all over the world ah link me fi the tune and when the video drop next week, it ah go knock people out because the advance buzz pon it is so crazy," Anthony Cruz said in a release.
The single is centred on a dilemma for a male who finds that he is equally attracted to a girl, and her sexy mom, a juicy situation which is fraught with the possibilities of intrigue, and a dilemma that most males would welcome. The single has also been generating a lot of debate on social network sites, with a lot of stories from self-confessed 'gallists' sharing theirown conquests along similar lines.
"The video is about a mother-in-law who meets her son-in-law for the first time and is instantly attracted to him. We shot the video in a beautiful housein Mandeville with a nice swimming pool, plus there is a 2012 Range Rover in it. This is a high-quality video," Cruz said.
The video director is Ucal who has shot videos such as Macka Diamond and Lady G's I Want A Man, Junior X's Plead My Cause, Anthony Cruz's I Like and Octane's Stab Vampire.
Cruz believes the provocative nature of the song will make it a bona fide hit in the reggae market both here and overseas.
"Even the females love it because it tells an intriguing story. The two females who play the mother and daughter role are dynamite...great looking, sexy, this is a visually excellent video,all the men are going to be jealous of me," Cruz said, laughing.
He has been in the music biz for over 15 years. Cruz's list of hits include Turn It Up on the Jammy's label, a cover of Usher's U Got It Bad, which went to the top of the Choice FM reggae chart in the UK, Place Too Bloody featuring Buju Banton, No Gun A Dance for the Stone Love label, Mama Blessing for the Fifth Element label and Half-Way Tree for the Footsteps label.
To date, Cruz has released three albums, Where There's Love on the Heavy Beat label, Mama's Blessing for the now-defunct Jet Star label and Fight With All Your Might for Penthouse/VP Records. His fourth album, Cruz Control, was released earlier this year on his own Shan Shan Music label.
