Smokie Cut releases new video

smokie cutInspired by the things which make summer time fun, Jihad “Smokie Cut” Jean Jacque has released a new video named “Feels like Summer Part 2.”

According to the young artist, who is originally from Goodwill, the song is about being grateful for summer days. “It speaks about having fun with your real friends on the beach during the summer time, its summer time and it comes once a year,” he said.

Smokie Cut noted that the song  is part two of another summer song released last year.

He said that although he wrote the song for someone else to sing, he was encouraged by his friends to perform it himself.

Jean Jacque said he took his friends advice since the person for whom the song was written could not perform it the way he wanted.

The artiste hopes to release mix tape “Above Expectations” by the end of August.

Smokie pointed out that he enjoys writing and he claims he writes a new song almost everyday.

    U JUST CANT PLEASE EVERYBODY!!! some pple who make negative comments r the same ones whose kids listen to jay-z, wiz kalifa, nikki minaj, lil wayne, with the ‘very decent’ lyrical contents that refer to women as h**s n our young men n****s. the same ones who listen to all these dancehall music n imitating the dances right infrnt of y’all. but u stay quiet dont u? a young man is trying to do something, create music thats not only for dominica, but for the region, n most r bashing, rather than CONSTRUCTIVELY criticising.

    bouyon music is dominica. however our bouyon bands and music is much bigger in the french islands. y is it a problem for smokey cut to try to make music that will appeal to an outside audience when our own music cant even cut it here.

    my only issue with that video is the apparent under-aged girls dancing n drinking. its a good song but cld be much better with some classy, good looking, MATURE ladies in the video. good luck smokey

      Sir, as a musical and video specialist there is no way this so call music video of yours can go no where in and on the regional and international industry , Sir you try your best to sing with a Jamaican accent but not even if you come again. I think you should try Belair instead . I am so sorry to be so hash , If some one hate’s you hi or she will say to you this so call video is good , frankly its @ a zero level.

    Absolute garbage!! Is there a new language spoken in Dominica? This is so annoying everybody either wants to sound Jamaican and trying way to hard it pukes fake, or they have a fake American/British accent! Why people? Funny how they can can do this but find their own patois difficult. Weed smoking amongst young people coupled with excess alcohol is now worth promotion? What is original about this that would give it regional let alone international airplay? Why would any sensible person wanting to make a name for themselves choose of all names “jihad”? Dominican young people need some serious cultural grounding. For every fake Jamaican dancehall copycat, the industry already has a real one. I make no apologies for calling this what it is nonesense and filth!

      Everything in your post is so right, but that is it in Dominica, that is what we call talent a whole bunch of nonsense with no originality, utter rubbish.

      The genre of the music the man wants to make is dancehall which is from Jamaica so his lyrics will sound Jamaican. If he was making zouk he would song french if he was making r n b he would sing with an american accent. I dont see your point.

      Jihad is the name the young man’s parents chose for him… Smh.. Best to say nothing if what you say will guarantee you a fool.

      He didn’t name himself jihad. check whats in the inverted commas. And reggae/dance-hall will only get real attention if its jamaican context. So colton T music is garbage too? He apparently if flying high. So think of it…how far will one make it if they stick to Dominican lyrics and not develop the core essence of jamaican rendition.

    Look at carefully all the men are fully clad why asked the women to go half naked. time to give our women more respect they are not objects for your fantasy. Women wise up and carry yourself with elegance and be a woman of excellence.

    Why the smoking and drinking of beers, no example to our young people this video in senseless. It is not of high standard and quality, this man must come again with something better and educational for our your people. Stupes :mrgreen: :twisted:

      Lat time I checked drinking beers is legal as long as you of age to consume alchohol. So is smoking of cigarettes. Drinking a beer on the beach and smoking a cigareete is normal activity young people see adults doing all the time. What you expect them to be doing on the beach in a summertime music video? Reading a new caribbean jr reader?
