ARCHIVED WAR REPORTS



No Doubt and Bounty from Orange County.

Bounty was in Los Angeles this past week, filming scenes for the video to “Hey Baby” - the first single off the new album from No Doubt. Led by Gwen Stefani, who recently hyped up the Eve “Let Me Blow Your Mind” tune and video, No Doubt are a hugely popular pop-rock band from Cali who are heavily inspired and influenced by Reggae and Dancehall, who have also sold some 20 million albums. “I've been listening to this music since puberty,” said Gwen Stefani when we asked her how she whine so? No Doubt's new album - 'Rocksteady' - is dropping December 18.

The video for “Hey Baby” was shot in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights, the same 'hood where they shot the Crip/Blood movie 'Colors.' Filmed over three days, even though Bounty was only there for one day, the fun-packed clip reflects the band-on-the-road feel of the song, featuring Bounty in scenes at and after Club Poonani. The fact that No Doubt chose their collabo with Bounty Killer as the premier release from the much-anticipated album, at a time when Gwen Stefani is about to be iconized into pop culture for ever, is a great endorsement of not only the creative reaches of Bounty Killer, but of Dancehall on a whole.
Anytime you see or hear Bounty Killer on stage or on your TV screen or through your woofers, you see the representation of hardcore Dancehall and it's homeland Jamaica. That image will now reach millions via MTV, commercial radio and a vigorous marketing campaign. Once again Bounty is setting trends with this kind of cross-culture combination - whilst others are running down BET, Bounty will step into the hearts and minds of millions of people of all backgrounds.

Unoo fi also look out fi the 'Making of The Video' special on MTV, which will air next month to accompany the video's launch. 'Hey Baby' will bubbling outta yuh radios in the coming weeks, whilst the video will light up your TV screens from November 7 on MTV, right after the airing of the Making the Video special. Is it bad? No doubt! Bounty in the Warwaggon with the director of Hey Baby - Dave Meyers. Meyers is one of the biggest names in music video production having worked with many of the world's major music icons.
