"Pushin It" | Edwin Yearwood | Barbados Crop Over 2012

Some call him a living legend while others feel complete when they hear the voice of Edwin Yearwood... the man with the voice, the General did not disappoint with this one titled "Pushng It". Let me say this from the start.... the song is good but the music needs some work! Now don't go running about the place saying that Trinizagada does not like the song. As a matter of fact I do believe that this song has the potential to be a 'Monsta' hit for Crop Over 2012 but it needs some tweaking.

Now to be honest when I first heard the track I was not enamored with it for one simple reason... the music that accompanied the vocals. Something just did not feel right and I was saying to myself that this music is lacking something. Then the feedback came saying that this musical style is typical for the 'Producer' aka Monstapiece. The feedback claimed that Monstapiece 'always keeps it simple on the rhythms'. The people who admire Edwin's singing style were quick to defend then rave about the song.  I still feel that the producers could have done better with the music.

Do you think that the song is 'Simple, smooth and sweet'? Well if that is your thinking please leave a comment. If you think that they could improve on the song then make some noise and get them to re-work the music. It is sad to hear good singing fall on the wayside because of the producers need to 'keep it simple'.

I guess in this day and age of the riddim maker people have gone to the electronic generators to save on spending on 'live musicians'... this is a shame because some really good singing could come to a screeching halt because of some 'force ripe riddim'.

I believe that those who love the work of Edwin Yearwood would not take kindly to my criticism of the man's work but I still believe that the music needs some work to make this song into a hit for Crop Over 2012.
