Local artiste releases new song, video

Donnel "DeeArr" Romain (Left) and Asher Thomas on the set of "One in a Million" music video.

Local up-and-coming artiste Donnel “DeeArr” Romain has released a brand new song and music video.

The LHR (LionHeart Records) lead singer, a Portsmouth native, teamed up with Symplz crooner/Q Talent Search 2010 winner Asher Thomas to create a duet entitled “One In A Million.”

The song has recently entered the rotation on major radio stations here in Dominica and according to reports it has been very well received.

The official video for the song had been highly anticipated for some months now by the fans of both artists. Just two days into its online release, it has already created a stir on YouTube and Facebook.

The music video was filmed and edited by emerging video producer Chad Ambo.

The soundtrack was produced by Alexson Ettiene from Portsmouth.

    “Auto Tune” had to research this one. Its widly used in the musical industry to enhance digital vocal and put off key pitch in perfect symphony. Time magazine though criticized this as one of the top 50 worst inventions.(http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auto-Tune).
    My padna sent me the video, the song is good,the message behind the song was well transmitted however, something was missing-lack of creativity as others have commented.
    Overall good effort,I know u guys will do better next time. Keep doing u thing and make all of us proud.

    The girls were local. D auto tune was just part of d production . Different producers produce differently. But still thanks for all who enjoyed it ,appreciate the live and for d criticism .it has all been viewed as constructive . Big up DNO for having us on here . I think its a rather good look . Look out for bigger things from Asher thomas and D R . Big up to Chad Ambo , Arie d producer and donnel for featuring me on the track

    maybe you have a beautiful voice but i can make nothing out of it because IT IS NOT NATURAL!!!for the love of music listen to some of the oldie goldies stars and you will understand that the vocal cords have a big part to play and not the electronic vocal cords.bash me who want but iam saying out loud what some of you are thinking low down.

      gr8 job guys but where are our women? where are the female voices of Dominica?

    good voice. i find something missing about the video,the entire videe was shot in one area.like someone said previously, it lacked creativity.

    one in a million- at least a shot by the beach with the girl running towards him and jump on him and kiss him, go out in the gardens and have a lovers picnic…………….he didn’t even go on his knees to propose with a pleading face.

    All of these are ways to add meaning to the words of the song in the video and to add great viewers interest in that i would be an interesting video.

    • What the?
      April 30, 2012

      But that would cost good money for lighting etc. This is the cheapest way of doing things. It’s good.

      When Warner come along … then ride an elephant on the beach.

    Hats off to my homeboys and to the people that criticize remember these guys don’t have promoters and top producers and managers so to come up with work like this let’s just appreciate it. Keep making music hard work pays off. Great job all around.

    I may be missing something here. The song is entitled “one in a million”, so why is it that I’m seeing the guy is hooked up with 2 different girls? Maybe i have not gotton it as yet but to me one in a million means you are the only one.

    • interesting
      April 30, 2012

    April 27, 2012

    The video is kinda lacking in creativity. Just an OK effort from all. But its a good start. Can’t hate too much.

    Nice voice, but, let me be the one to give some constructive criticism….as many breathtaking scenes as there are in Dominica, this video would have been a lot more creatove had you gotten a video camera and taken a walk on the beach with the young lady or anything besides “just sitting on a couch!”

    great job on the video and the song. The only thing that spoiled it for me was the fact that there was just way too much autotune. I would have liked to hear the actual voices…

    Give us more voice next time and less auto tune!

      alot of potential, but too much auto tune….

    Ok. Im not hating on the track but, Simon would have said ” I thought I was at a baptist church listening to a new artist.”
    The video is great, good job Chad, son! u got talent.
    But the first girl keep looking at the camera… pretty but cant act. I personally thought the second guy was more talented.
    And for crying out loud isn’t ‘Auto tune’ supposed to make ur voice better…
    Eh! ‘E’ for Effort

    Great voice, my brother. However, you need to use the talent God gave you for his glory. Sing love songs unto Father God instead and He will increase you.

      same thing i am saying. they tend to use foreign girls in their videos. There are so many beautiful, sexy dominican girls. if you want to promote you music, your country, then promote the women of your country too

      • john doe

        them…the first girl is not a local girl

      April 29, 2012

      i hope she is dominican too, all these singers seem to favour very fair girls in their video what happens to us dark girls. pls don’t become like those black americans who do the same thing

      • smfh
        April 29, 2012

        bull ish!!!

        Look up the latest music videos from dominica count how many fair girls u see.. and Dominica population isnt 100% dark skin ppl get over your self everyone gets a shot..

      • SweetP
        April 30, 2012

        I was thinking the same thing. I hope the girl is his gf or atleast a dominican because if not i cannot support this guy. I’m not racist but he is up and coming and already behaving like a typical famous black man, watch the amount of black famous men that have white or wives that are not black. I cannot understand this what is wrong with being famous and having a black partner? Some would argue that there was a black chick but she wasnt the main girl plus i find they have her beating up herself soo much where as the other girl everything is like normal. SMH.
