Back to Basics

Arguably the most popular dancehall performer since Shabba Ranks, Moses Davis a. k. a. Beenie Man has put six years between himself and the double-shot singles that minted his legend, "Who Am I" and "The Girls Dem Sugar." Back to Basics sports his most addictive single since: "Dude," featuring the vocoderized vocal of Ms. Thing and a relentless riddim that's ruled the charts in Jamaica. The aptly titled disc attempts to clear the slate for the Doctor, whose recent output has been messy with crossover attempts and self-indulgence, laser-focusing on hard dancehall tracks, produced by JA hitmakers Dave Kelly, Tony Kelly, Don Corleon, and Beenie himself. No reggae opera, no Spanish crooning, lullabies, cowboy yodels, or any other whimsies that Beenie fans have had to endure. Held up by the dancehall don's Hummer crash in Mandeville (he broke a few ribs and a collapsed lung required emergency surgery), the hotly anticipated Basics is sure to please Beenie's gal (and bwoy) massive.
