King of the Dancehall Beenie Man says that if Spice and his ex-wife D’Angel had set aside their differences earlier, then their No Worries collab would have been a hit.

Speaking during an Onstage interview aired on Saturday night, Beenie said dissonance in Dancehall is a no-no for him.  According to the Rum and Red Bull artist, even the long-standing feud between himself and Bounty Killer was merely a means of propelling both their careers and at no time had it ever resulted in him not greeting Bounty whenever he saw him, despite the Warlord believing that he was hailing him as a means of provocation.

“Dem (Spice and D’Angel) shoulda do dat long time still.  Dem shoulda do dat long time from di song caw di song woulda bigga…,” Beenie told host Winford Williams, after he was asked his opinion on the reunion between the two women.

“Yuh si, yu cannot have dissonance inna Dancehall.  Yuh cannot, is not a ting weh mi support.  Me an Bounty Killa ting was just fi bring us to di forefront.  Den yuh realise seh yuh a big man now… all a dat gone fi 22 years… Suh dat is a great ting and is a great ting for females in Dancehall,” he stated, adding that other feuding artistes should follow suit.

As for No Worries, it was produced by Good Good Productions on Dancehall music producer Zum’s hit-laden Money Mix juggling riddim.  On D’Angel’s VEVO, the track has had 5.3 million views since it was premiered in 2017.

The Montego Bay-based label’s Money Mix’s string of hits included Vybz Kartel’s Poco Man Skank, Mavado’s Fresh Cash, Masicka’s 10 outa 10, Yanique Curvy Diva’s Lifestyle, and Shenseea’s Wine.

One of the biggest songs on the beat was Yanique’s Lifestyle.  The accompanying music video for that song has since garnered 8.6 million views on YouTube.  The video was released eight months after the song was released, and at that time, Zum had pledged to “spare no costs on its production”, as, according to him, “Jamaican artistes are already as talented as any overseas act, so the visual content also has to be of that same calibre”.

“With the Curvy Diva, we had to go all out because the world is watching her, and she is representing the best of what Jamaican talent has to offer,” the producer had said at the time.

The biggest song on Money Mix however, was Masicka’s hit track 10 outta 10.  That song with a clean and a raw version cumulatively has accrued more than 12 million views, is a Dancehall anthem for women.

Last week Monday, members of the Dancehall fraternity, including Good Good productions,  celebrated Spice and D’Angel’s burying of the hatchet the day before at the IMARWA awards.

In a video which was captured by Williams, the two Dancehall divas were seen gigging, and teasing each other, while searching through their phones in a bid to unblock each other on Instagram, having banned each other in 2019, after a public raucous spat, over No Worries

Among the other celebrities who had celebrated the reunion were Pamputtae, Queen Lady Gansgta (Queenie), Razor B and selector Pink Panther.

Spice, D’Angel

The skirmish between the two began in January 2019, after Spice called out D’angel during an Instagram Live video for being a hypocrite.

As the imbroglio unfolded, D’angel had shared a video on social media, addressing her fallout with Spice, claiming the Guh Down Deh artiste was the one who sought a collaboration after she was rebuked for not helping other female artistes.

The Exposed singer had, among other things, also addressed the issue of one of Spice’s dancers disrespecting her on social media. 

However, Spice had taken to Instagram where she castigated D’Angel while revealing details about why her marriage ended with Beenie Man.   She had also said she was the one who used her own money (J$200,000) to shoot the music video for No Worries and went on to offer J$1million to anyone who could prove she started any conflict with a female artiste.

Spice had explained that she had played her part in uplifting female entertainers, pointing to her 2013 all-female Gal Click riddim on which she had featured Macka Diamond, Stacious and Stylish.
