We first heard of Terro when we heard the Flatlands riddim on the Federation Sound podcast. Of course he has been around for a while and has had hits before but there was something about his version that made us want to listen to more of his stuff. His latest single Rock Di Boat is out and we thought we would ask him some questions based on the lyrics of the track.
A lot of dancehall is based on dance moves, did you create this tune with that in mind. If so is there a certain move for this tune?
Well the song wasnt built with a specific move in mind. rock di boat is just a song for the ladies to have a good time to. ladies can just feel free to do what wanna do on this song. its just a fun song for you
