Elephant Man Set to Release ’Let’s Get Physical,’ New CD from Bad Boy/VP Records Joint Venture, On April 8

Dancehall King, Elephant Man, will release his latest studio CD, "Let’s Get Physical," on April 8, 2008. A long time in the making, the star-studded project is the first release from a new venture which joins Sean "Diddy" Combs’ Bad Boy Records with the largest independent Jamaican music label, VP Records. "Let’s Get Physical" features the hit lead single "Five O," on which Wyclef appears. The remix for "Five-O" is blazing a trail with rising digital sales and has caught attention at radio with an all-star line up from Swizz Beats, Assassin, Yung Joc and Diddy. "Jump," the hard-hitting, high energy second single, also features Swizz Beats. Barbados-born Rihanna appears on the steamy dance track "Throw Your Hands Up" and Elephant Man-fan Chris Brown lends his vocals to the bouncy "Feel the Steam." Also check out "Body Talk" featuring Dominican R&B singer Kat Deluna and female rapper Jha Jha, and the hot remix for "The Way We Roll" with Busta and Shaggy. The set is executive produced by Sean "Diddy" Combs, Chris Chin, Harve Pierre and Willie Daniels.

"A true entertainer is versatile and makes music for the world," says Jamaica-native Elephant Man, dubbed The Energy God by fans because of his high energy stage performances. Elephant Man first stormed on the stage back in 1998 under the wings of Bounty Killa and the Scare Dem Crew. The self- proclaimed Dancehall King is solely responsible for reuniting dancehall music with its fun free-spirited roots.

His debut album, Good 2 Go (VP Records), became a worldwide smash in 2004 with the release of chart topping party tunes like "Signal di Plane" and "Pon di River, Pon di Bank," the single which snagged him a Source Award for "Dancehall/Reggae Artist of the Year" and the MTV2 nomination at the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards.

Since then, Elephant Man has recorded collaborations with Lil’ Jon on the "Get Low Remix," R. Kelly on "Reggae Bump Bump," Pitbull and Daddy Yankee on the "Rah-Rah Remix," and Janet Jackson on "All Nite (Don’t Stop)."

Elephant Man is excited about his major label joint venture (Bad Boy/VP Records) as he looks forward to making dancehall history with Sean "Diddy" Combs and the entire Bad Boy family. "I’ve been a fan of Bad Boy for the longest time and now I’m Bad Boy for life !" Ele laughs. "We gonna take dancehall to another level."

On "Let’s Get Physical," Elephant Man fuses party tunes with lyrics that speak of the social ills and violence plaguing the people of Jamaica. His notorious dance anthems cascade throughout the record. "With the Bad Boy production and promotion teams, together with the Energy God ... It’s gonna be madness," says Elephant Man.

"If you saw me today you are never gonna forget me ... my hair, my clothes, my style ... I’m crazy man, I’m the Energy God ... Father of the Dancehall ... "
