11/24/2023 by Press Release
Queen Omega & Little Lion Sound - No Love Dubplate... single Release via RCA a division of Sony Music Entertainment Germany GmbH / Robots & Humans Music Limited.
It's the dancehall and reggae hype of the year: This summer Queen Omega and Little Lion Sound caused a worldwide viral sensation with their No Love dubplate on the instrumental of the hip-hop classic The Next Episode by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. There has definitely been no getting around the track on social media in recent months. The sound has well over 120 million views across all platforms on Instagram and TikTok, while the accompanying video has been viewed well over 30 million times on YouTube alone. Finally, the mash-up, which has been streamed millions of times, is being released as an official single on Friday - November 24, 2023.
An incredible success for supposedly niche genres such as reggae or dancehall - but anyone who hears the passion and power with which Queen Omega makes the riddim of the Swiss Little Lion Soundsystem her own will immediately sense the incredible fascination that radiates from this piece, which also celebrates the genre-typical form of the dubplate and so the culture on all levels.
Dubplates are an art form that is especially popular in the dancehall and reggae scene, in which artists perform modified versions of existing songs in the form of mash-ups together with a sound system, for example. With a voice that makes the floor shake, the 42-year-old perfectly matches the vibe of the iconic West Coast rap track from 2000 thanks to Little Lion Sound - an international collabo of unmatched intensity that crosses the borders of countries and genres alike.
Since her self-titled debut album Queen Omega, the Trinidadian singer has been one of the female biggest and most powerful voices on the international reggae scene and has already worked with legends such as Buju Banton, Capleton and Gentleman. In 2012, Queenie, as the singer is nicknamed by her fans, went quiet for a long time before making an impressive comeback in 2023 with the album Freedom Legacy. She has traveled around the world and is acclaimed by all for her live performances just to name a few of the prestigious stages she hits Rototom (ES), Boomtown (UK), Hammamet International Festival (TU), Rebel Salute (JA)… She stands out with an energetic live show, and a splendid voice!
Founded in Geneva in 2004, Little Lion Sound has long since made a name for itself beyond the borders of Switzerland as one of the most renowned sound systems in Europe. With their vibes between reggae, dancehall and afrobeat, the sound system has played more than 1000 shows from New York to Australia and has already collaborated with top international stars such as Anthony B, Shaggy, Konshens and Capleton.
