Brian Bonitto (Jamaica Observer) reports that Sean Paul’s 2003 Billboard chart-topper “Get Busy” is showing no signs of slowing down. The single is one of several featured in the upcoming animation film Home, slated for release on March 27. Little did I know that “Get Busy” remixes have been featured in three other films Grind (2003), Chasing Liberty (2004), and Baby Mama (2008).
[. . .] Originally released in 2002, Get Busy is on the Steven ‘Lenky’ Marsden-produced Diwali riddim. The single is on Sean Paul’s sophomore, Grammy-winning album Dutty Rock. That set was re-released the following year for the international market.
“That song was written by me and my brother, JigZag, and was number one on the Billboard charts for a couple of weeks. It was a big accomplishment for myself, everyone involved such as producers, other artistes on the riddim and dancehall music, in general. I am proud to be part of a big staple dancehall riddim like Diwalil,” he said.
This is not the first time Get Busy will be listed in the movie credits. The song’s remix was featured in Grind (2003), Chasing Liberty (2004), and Baby Mama (2008).
“This only means that you’ve made cultural history!!! You never can tell which songs will be the big ones. You have to just love music and do work. Each player brings their own flavour to the game. There’s space for everyone,” he added.
Home — based on the 2007 Adam Rex’s children’s book The True Meaning of Smekday — is an American 3-D comedy film starring Barbados-born international recording star Rihanna and American actor Jim Parsons. The voices Jennifer Lopez and funnyman Steve Martin are also featured in the DreamWorks Animation project.
