Veteran reggae artiste/comedian and son of the later rock steady singer Noel ‘Rozah Rose’ Ellis has a big reason to smile as one of his songs was sampled by Kanye West and struck gold in the US!
Kanye’s single All Day which samples Roza’s decade old Dance With Me sold over half a million copies in the United States.
All Day, which is featured on West’s upcoming seventh studio album SWISH, spent several weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, and was premiered by Kanye West earlier this year at the 2015 BRIT awards.
Commenting on the song’s success to the Jamaican Star he said “I feel proud. I was a bit surprised because I wasn’t hearing the song like one time. When it was just released, I used to hear it a lot, but I’m really pleased about this achievement.”
Roza Rose who used to live in Canada returned to Jamaica in 2008. He is also featured frequently on the very popular Ity and Fancy Cat Show.
