Barrington Levy 'Rosie' Black Roses Ent & Platinum Camp Records Making of Blackroses 2.0 Video Shoot


As reggae icon Barrington Levy's latest single, 'Rosie' bombs FM radio into submission, many people have been wondering what is the singer's obsession with 'Rosie'.


Several music industry insiders, reggae artistes, video vixens, and music fans descended on the Mixing Lab studio last week for the Mellow Canary's 'Rosie' shoot hoping to find out.

"There is no obsession with 'Rosie'," a smiling Levy said. "She's just a character." People think what they want to think, but me and Rosie don't have nothing going on. It's not Tutty-grand Rosie or any other Rosie."

Daddy Biggs CEO of Platinum Camp Records and President of Black Roses Records have never been more focused on aggressively promoting this hit single.

This video will resonate we the people and the single is a refreshing current reggae sound sure to be a hit. It has captured the ears of radio Dj's- willing to enter the single into heavy rotation. Everyone is loving the new sound. "Rosie" it has already gone world wide.

The video shoot, which was directed by Allison McLean and Team Roses started at 6 a.m. and continued well into the night. The legendary Chris Browne handled the actual video photography.

Industry insiders believe that this single, given the early buzz on the streets, is destined to be a monumental success. Radio broadcasters such as Barry G, Ron Muschette and Elise Kelly and Digital Chris have been raving about the well-produced single, 'Rosie', where Barrington Levy is at the height of his awesome vocal powers.

Levy admits that the song is a Part II to his seminal hit, 'Black Roses'.

"The story continues, I wrote the song recently as a followup to 'Black Roses'. You see 'Black Roses' was about traveling the world and never seeing a black rose, something special in my garden. Now 'Rosie' is that special girl who comes into my life with ignorance when I am looking for romance, and how I lay down the rules for her, threatening to lock her off if she doesn't change," Levy said.

This is not the first time that the man known as 'Mellow Canary' has sung about a character called 'Rosie'. In one of his biggest international hits, 'Here I Come' (Broader than Broadway), he sings about a Rosie who leaves her son with his father so that she can have more time to party.

"This is a different 'Rosie'," he said, laughing.

Last week, several artists such as Mr. G, Ginjah, newcomer Prince Levy Ghost and Singing Melody were present at the video shoot. Reggae industry forefronts such as Bones of IRIE FM, The Great General Daddy Biggs of Platinum Camp Records at Platinumcamp.com, Carlington Wilmot of Outaroad.com, Claude Mills ofOne876entertainment.com and Boswell 'Stampede' Lammie of Stampede Street Charts also showed up to give support.

Levy has been resurgent since his International Night 1 performance on last year's Reggae Sumfest which was one of the festival's highlights. He released a single, 'Love the Way She Love' with Mr. Vegas, his first in 15 years, since 'Living Dangerously', with Bounty Killer.

The single, produced by Handel Tucker and Barrington Levy, was recorded at Mixing Lab studios and features the talents of musicians such as Dean Fraser (horns), Winston Bowen (guitar) and backing vocals by Tabeta McEwan. The music for the single is also performed by Handel Tucker.

"Internationally, my fans on social media, Twitter, and Facebook have been responding with much excitement about the single." Mr. Levy's manager Daddy Biggs and Team Roses is working relentlessly to make certain that this single will chart number 1 on the Bill Board.
