The track has been one of the biggest songs in dancehall over the last year and is showing no signs of slowing down. Hot 97 Radio in New York even added the song to its playlist following high demands from its listeners. That might have prompted Major Lazer to want to do a remix for the single.
“Major Lazer always make dope dancehall music with mainstream appeal and Vybz Kartel is the biggest in dancehall right now,” sources told Dancehallhiphop.com. “People are still listening to “Fever” all over the world and this remix will give it more momentum through the summer and the rest of the year.”
Vybz Kartel and Major Lazer have worked together in the past on the 2009 smash hit “Pon De Floor.” That song saw massive success on the international stage and locally. Since then they have worked on a few other singles that were not as big as “Pon De Floor.”
