Jamaican music is no stranger to the mainstream film world. Persons like, Jimmy Cliff, Eric Donaldson, Bob Marley and Sean Paul are among an elite group of Jamaicans whose music can be heard blasting in some of the most high-budget American films.
Dancehall artiste Busy Signal has found himself among this elite group for his song ‘Watch Out Fi Dis’, a hit collaboration he did with Electronic Dance Music group, Major Lazer. This comes as the song was a featured soundtrack in top box office comedy, Ride Along 2 starring popular actors, Ice Cube and Kevin Hart.
Busy Signal took to Instgram to share his joy.

Ride Along 2 which was produced by Universal Studios won the Martin Luther King Jr weekend, when it topped the box office within a week of its release.
Guess it’s safe to say, the “Turf President” is on the right track. Way to go Busy!
