Elephant roams Billboard again
Hips Sing, Elephant Man’s collaboration with American house music DJ/producer DJ Sultan, debuted at number 47 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart last week.
It is the third entry on this chart for the dancehall artiste. He was on Janet Jackson’s 2004 number one dance hit All Nite (Don’t Stop); in 2007, he again topped the chart with Kat Deluna on Whine Up.
Between 2003 and 2009, Elephant Man racked a string of hits on Billboard charts. On the Billboard Hot 100 chart, he scored two hits: 2003’s Pon De River, Pon De Bank which stalled at number 86, and Jook Gal (Wine Wine) alongside Kip Rich, which peaked at number 57.
On Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart he charted at number 15 in June 2004 with Jook Gal, while Pon De River, Pon De Bank reached number 19 in September 2003.
