Mr Vegas shells out 2 new lyrically loaded 45’s “Rise Again” and “Bare Tingz”
YAOW!!!! Mr. Vegas is going in! You thought he went ham on social media following his cheating scandal? You ain’t seen (or heard) nothing yet! Mr Vegas is now making lemonade from his lemons by putting his sentiments into his music. He returned to the studio after the well publicized challenges to his personal life and came out with two new lyrically loaded 45s for the MV Music label.
“Bare Tingz” lays out Mr Vegas’ response to the gossip and chatter about the recent events surrounding him and an alleged cheating girlfriend. Those looking for the inside scoop should pay attention to Vegas’ argument, the thrust of which is made clear in the title of the song.
“Di gyal and man a bruk it down inna mi bed and now me cyaan sleep… dem de bun de hotta dan di sun, nuh do it pon de bed, better you do it pon di ground…”
“Bare Tingz” puts to rest conjecture and confusion in favor of straight talk but only as Vegas’ cutting and humorous style can achieve. Deftly turning a challenge into an opportunity, Mr Vegas flips disappointment into a showcase of his lyrical and musical skills.
Often obscured by the hype of the dancehall scene, his vocal chops are on full display in “Rise Again”. Vegas’ commitment to the song, a cover of UK soul singer Gabrielle’s hit in 2000, is the result of serious soul searching by a man intent on bearing witness to the pain in a way anyone who has been hurt can identify with.
More than music, “Rise Again” and “Bare Tingz” demonstrate Vegas’ personal commitment to be open with himself and his fans in order to move from strength to strength. Gotta love Mr. Vegas’ approach, what doesn’t kill you only strengthens you!
