Dancehall artiste Ricky Rudie, better known as ‘Bling Dawg’ released new single ‘God is Amazing’. The new single and a soon-to-be-released album are the fruits of his elevation along with his weight-loss journey.
“I was overweight and decided that I needed to change that, so my mind was focused on that goal. I also took a hiatus to find myself spiritually and mentally, and the great thing with this journey that I am on is that everything just fall into place,” Bling Dawg said in an interview.
Based on his dedication to his new routine and look, he has gotten a lot of comments from fans for new music. He shared some of the responses from followers on social media to his workout videos. “The people seh dem tiad of the video. Dem call me lazy and all kind of things and seh mi must go do some tunes. But I just laugh in myself and keep on putting in the work,” he said.
The entertainer announced his return earlier this month with the single 'God is Amazing'. The gospel track is a different move from what Bling is known for but fans are enjoying it, leaving comments under the video on YouTube: “This song is really beautiful and Bling’s vocals were excellent. Loved the concept of the video and the actors did an amazing job.”
According to Bling, “This was just supposed to be a song that keeps me relevant, but it is now the first single from the album. What makes this so amazing is that I have been releasing songs since the end of ‘99 and my songs usually tek a time to soak in. But with this, it connected right away. A just God a work. Me just a sit down in the car and watch Him a work,” Bling said.
With the soon to be released album 'Elevate', and having experienced what he calls “the good and the bad, and the pretty and the ugly”, the deejay is physically and spiritually connected, which inspired the title of the album, and although the pandemic has ‘pressed pause’ on the album, the music part of it is ready, and his team is dealing with the business aspect leading up to its impending release.
