Red Fox and Rayvon eye Billboard charts

RED Fox and Rayvon, stalwarts of the New York City dancehall circuit, are eyeing a return to the Billboard charts with their latest song, No Other Like You.

The song was produced by New York- based Jamaican producer Musical Masquerade.

“The response has been positive so far. Based on the promotions that we have been doing in North America, Africa, Hawaii and Europe, the feedback has been phenomenal,” said the producer.

No Other Like You was released digitally on January 15. It pits two stalwarts of American dancehall, who have been around since the early 1990s.

Rayvon first rode the Billboard charts in the mid-1990s with the song No Guns, No Murder. He also charted with My Bad, 2 Way and Pretty (Before I Go To Bed).

Born Bruce Brewster in Barbados, he is known to many Jamaicans as a close friend of Shaggy with whom he scored major hits including Angel, Nice and Lovely and In The Summertime.

Red Fox, whose real name is Gareth Shelton, migrated to the United States in 1986 and was raised in Brooklyn, New York.

He started his recording career for Peter McKenzie a veteran dancehall producer and owner of the independent label, FM Force.

He made his mark with songs like Come Boogie Down in 1988 and Down in Jamaica the following year.

In 1993, he signed with major label Elektra Records, which released his debut album, As a Matter of Fox, which featured tracks such as Dem a Murderer, I’m Gonna Take You Home, Ghetto Gospel and Golden Axe.

He followed-up with Face The Fox on VP Records. In 2005, the Alicia Keys/Red Fox reggae remix If I Ain’t Got You, peaked at number four on the New York Reggae Singles Chart.
