Vybz Kartel strikes Gold with Partynextdoor
PARTYNEXTDOOR's record 'Not Nice', which samples Vybz Kartel's 'Girl You
Too Bad' single, has been certified gold by the Recording Industry
Association of America.
Girl You Too Bad was released in 2011, while Not Nice was produced by international producer Dre Skull, who is known for his work with former Vybz Kartel affiliate Popcaan.
Gold in the US signifies that more than 500,000 copies of the record have been purchased by fans.
Not Nice currently has more than 20 million views on YouTube.
This is the second bit of positive news for Vybz Kartel in recent
times. The deejay, who is currently incarcerated, recently charted at
number 37 on the R&B Billboard Chart with Fever.
THE WEEKEND STAR contacted Vybz Kartel's 'best-friend' Amelia
'Milk' Sewell for comment on the deejay's current wave of success
internationally. The media personality, who also played the substitute
teacher on Vybz Kartel's reality show, Techa's Pet, said the deejay is still a trendsetter.
"The copyright money you get from samples is your insurance for further
down the line. He has kids to feed, and to see that his music is still
being well received, despite his absence, really shows that he is the
greatest of all time, like Usain Bolt. He is still relevant, and
artistes are still trying to be like him. They don't know what to sing
unless Vybz Kartel sings it first," she said.
Milk, who has visited the deejay several times since his incarceration,
believes the string of success for the deejay will lift his spirit
"This will keep him happy to see that the thing is still up. We are still close and we are still best of friends," she told THE WEEKEND STAR.
