SISTER NANCY’S “BAM BAM” TOPS ITUNES REGGAE CHART!

 Sister Nancy—

Bam Bam, a three decade-old single from deejay Sister Nancy, is receiving a new lease on life. It currently holds the number one spot on the iTunes Reggae Top 100 Chart.

Recorded in the mid-1980s for producer Winston Riley, the track is from the album One Two.

Bam Bam is one of two Jamaican songs on the soundtrack of the controversial movie The Interview. The Vybz Kartel-penned Pon de Floor, performed by EDM group Major Laser, is the other.

The Interview had a limited release by Sony on Christmas Day in the United States. The comedy, starring James Franco and Seth Rogen, surrounds a plot to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

The movie angered North Korea, which threatened military strikes against the United States if it was released. Sony initially postponed the release but it opened it on Christmas Day in only 331 cinemas.

Sister Nancy (given name Ophlin Russell-Myers) is the younger sister of veteran deejay Brigadier Jerry. She is a bank accountant in New Jersey and still performs in North America and Europe.
