Fresh Off Beyoncé Swiping His Dance, Dancehall Prodigy QQ Drops “Jack Hammer”

QQ follows the massive “One Drop” with a brand new soca-soaked single.

July 17, 2014



Beyoncé got the streets talking when she hit the Shmoney Dance during the tri-state stops of the On The Run tour this past week, but there was another dance swipe that caught trained eyes during her routine. Dancehall prodigy QQ scored a hit this year with "One Drop," the start-stop anthem to a dance that's part three-point-stance, part soldier's march. Today, QQ returns with "Jack Hammer," a jubilant daggerfest with a soca-soaked bounce and the sweeps and drops that have crept into dancehall production in recent carnival seasons. "Jack Hammer" will appear on the Reggae Gold 2014 compilation this August, big and bright enough to make this latter half of summer feel that much longer.
