Vybz Kartel Conjugal Visit' the 'Rampin' Shop' follow-up

Admitting that Vybz Kartel is still one of the hottest dancehall acts despite being behind bars, Spice says it was only fitting that she finally released the 'Rampin' Shop' follow-up in the form of 'Conjugal Visit'.

Back in 2008, Spice and Vybz Kartel released Rampin' Shop that entered the Billboard Top 100 Singles Chart in 2009.

Now Spice says it is the right time to release Conjugal Visit featuring Vybz Kartel.

"It was done after Rampin' Shop but it never got released. A few months ago, mi call TJ and tell him seh him need fi dust it off because mi need it," Spice said. The video was launched last night at Triple Century in New Kingston.

"Right now Vybz Kartel is the hottest artiste even though he is in prison. So after a huge hit like So Mi Like It with over nine million views on YouTube, I really wanted to follow up that with a banger. You can't go to a song that is lamer than the one you have current."

Although the title of the song suggests that it was recorded after Vybz Kartel's incarceration, Spice insists it was not.

"It wasn't called Conjugal Visit when we originally voiced it. When we release it, we decide to call it Conjugal Visitbecause that name suits it because he is behind bars," she said.


Since the video was placed on Spice's Vevo channel on Sunday, it has racked up over 100,000 views and on World Star Hip Hip, she said it already had over two million.

"People are confused by the Vybz Kartel lookalike in the video. People actually believe it is him," she said, noting that a few scenes from the Rampin' Shop video were also included in Conjugal Visit.

"I am hoping that it will be another big hit for me. It kinda remind me of Rampin' Shop. Vybz Kartel and I have good chemistry and it has been over five years so I think people will gravitate to it real well."
