One viral clip on TikTok has changed everything for the upcoming artiste. He is now viral across the streets of Jamaica while reminiscing the 80’s dancehall style


We're living in the social media or the digital era, and sometimes that's all it needs to become viral. This is also the case for vendor, now rising recording artiste, King Imxge (Prononouced King Image), whose latest single 'Bam Bam Bidam Bam' has become the latest viral dancehall clip and trending across the social networks and streets of Jamaica. The initial clip recorded in the streets of Downtown, Kingston made its way to the social media platforms earlier this year and depicts a freestyle which captures the heart of dancehall; fun, good vibes and good spirit which led to its immediate and rapid virality.



The young artiste took the TikTok platform to first deliver the video clip recorded by the labels -"In Di Streets Records", DP Productions & DGM Entertainment and immediately gained viral momentum, garnering over 400K views since its upload. "A nuh the first time they go viral, but this time its really take it seriously. we really focused to get them out there so we get Mac on the productions and me as well", described Nathanael Amore of DGM Entertainment.


At mid August, the burgeoning popular producer DJ Mac joined the project and contributed to the production process which was released on September 4 as an official single. The song is currently gaining momentum with 85K views on YouTube and placed at the #19 spot on the trending charts while also getting a lot of attention on other platforms such as Audiomack.

With the never-ending debate about the state of dancehall currently, the single reminds us of the golden era of the 80s. While in the 80's it was dancehall calibers like Tenor Saw, Eek-A-Mouse and many others, this single might be some evidence that Jamaica misses this dancehall style. "It captured the harder dancehall, people jus take to it", added the producer.


The soaring popularity of the single received sympathetic reactions across the social network with some already uploading a part of the single under the tag 'Jamaican National Anthem'. It is still too early to define King Imxge as a success story, not even a dancehall sensation, but sometimes all that is needed in this time is to just maintain the momentum.
