Jovi Rockwell - Killin’ Dem
If you take a scroll through the DJBooth.net archives, you’ll find countless Caribbean club-pop tracks dedicated to alluring shortys with jaw-dropping dance moves, but precious few such jams by the ladies themselves. Those yearning for a female take on the topic need look no further than Killin’ Dem, the latest mixtape single from first-time featuree Jovi Rockwell. Over Bruno Mars’ club-ready blend of handclap percussion and scorching synths, the Kingston native showcases her skills on the mic, explaining that, though she relishes the male lust and female jealousy she elicits from the moment she steps into the spot, she enforces a strict “look, but don’t touch” policy. A self-proclaimed “silver dollar” in a world full of dimes, Rockwell comes with enough energy to get the crowd moving wherever this record’s spun. Those who like what they’re hearing can find Killin’ Dem and many more dancehall-pop bangers on the Uprize Music/Epic Records signee’s Psycho Therapy street album, set to hit the ‘net Oct. 19.
