Aidonia remix "Run Road" in Honor of World Champion Usain Bolt

by DHRW
(Jamaica)


Dancehall star, Aidonia has given the six-time Olympic champion a gift in song after releasing a tribute song in his honor with a special remix of his hit single, Run Road.


The tribute, which features his Jag One Productions (J.O.P) protégé, Deablo was recorded the night prior to Bolt’s defense of his 200m title at the IAAF World Championships in Russia on Saturday. Additionally, Bolt rebounded from his false start during the 100m at the 2011 edition of the world championships to take gold in that event last week while helping the 4 by 100m relay team retain their title.

Aidonia, who says he has developed a good friendship with Bolt, spoke of how the tribute came about. He told the Jamaica STAR, “It was a no-brainer; when we got in studio, there were so many adjectives to describe Usain Bolt. He is the boss of track and field, the most naturally gifted and the greatest the world has ever seen.”

He continued, “In 2008, I recorded a song called Bolt Action, so is from long time the respect is there. Give thanks that my publicist got the Run Road tribute to him in time before his race and him let the world know that he appreciated it. I also want to big up all our athletes cause dem mek wi proud as an island. Nuff love goes out."

Bolt won the 200m with a time of 19.66 seconds, with teammate Warren Weir taking silver and Mikael Ashmeade finishing fourth. He then shouted out the J.O.P crew in his post-race interview with BBC for their efforts.

"Usain Bolt loves music,” said Keona Williams, Aidonia’s publicist. “Run Road is one of his favourite dancehall songs he always uses the term 'run road' in his conversations and so as a team, we came together and said we should do this tribute for him because he would very much appreciate it, which he did.”
