Three years ago, a single was released, and it found a new lease on life through the popular platform TikTok. This is the remarkable story of "Aphrodisia," a collaboration between dancehall star Teejay and singer PG Valentina.
Fast forward to the present day, and this track, initially recorded in 2020 but with its roots in projects dating back several years, is experiencing a resurgence in popularity, thanks to its viral presence on TikTok.
It has climbed the trending charts in various countries, including Barbados, Guyana, and Grenada, where it has not only dominated the reggae charts but also found its way into the R&B scene. "Every day on TikTok, between 500-800 videos are being created featuring this single. It's fascinating how it's not only making waves in the reggae charts but also in the R&B genre.", said Producer Romie Ikon.
"I always had faith in Aphrodisia due to the structure and production of the record. The song is a 'feel good' vibe that builds confidence in both parties," Said PG Valentina. "I do believe releasing the song during COVID made it hard and difficult to promote to its full potential. All I have to say is 'Gods timing, and what is for you will be'. Good music never dies", she added.
Teejay is also re-sharing the single on his Instagram account, amplifying its newfound success and encouraging girls to participate in the challenge.
