One of the songs that have got Dancehall enthusiasts recently more interested in brand Karamanti is the track “Big Woman Ting [RedBoom Mix]”. The reason the song has gotten so much attention is because it is very different from anything Karamanti has ever done. Anyone who follows her career knows that Karamanti is usually all about social commentary but on this record she is in hot pursuit of a guy who she hopes to get.
On the track Karamanti says “so me a talk my mind, da man ya cute and ye him have di wickedest smile, a African so yu know a just my type, him know bout mi hustle ye him know bout mi grind, mmm mmm”. Once radio DJs and bloggers heard the lyrics they were all wondering if it was really Karamanti. Not making a big deal, the artist contends that she is simply showing her lyrical diversity. DJs and sound systems have been noticing and many have requested the song in dubplate style.
The track was produced by an up and coming African producer but with it being mixed and mastered by one of Jamaica’s best, Red Boom, it sounds like something from the heart of Kingston. Big Woman Ting was released in early August on Blakkwuman22 Music label and is available on Itunes and other digital music stores for territories that does not allow free download https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/big-woman-ting-redboom-mix/id903163165
