In an effort to maintain the visibility of his hit single "No Letting Go," singer Wayne
Wonder has recorded a remix of the song featuring rapper LL Cool J and LL's own protg, a
female rapper named Duchess.

The remix was recorded last week in New York and it was spearheaded by VP Records'
Director of A&R, Joel Chin. Chin produced the remix, beefing up Stephen "Lenky" Marsden's
"diwali" rhythm at the HC&F recording studio in Long Island. LL and Duchess' vocals were
recorded at Sony Studios in Manhattan.

"Working with LL was an experience. It was a producer's dream come true to work with an
artist like LL who has been in the business for so long, accomplished so much with his
music and acting career and still, he's very humble and takes good direction. LL brings a
lot to the table and he's cooperative and a true professional. Also, it was great that he
truly loves the song," Chin told the Observer via telephone from his New York office

Chin also worked with LL's protg, an up and coming female rapper named Duchess. Chin
adds "His (LL Cool J's) new artist is a diamond in the rough. She's young, but she's
coming out the box tough. Duchess is a hot artist, and will become a force to reckon with,
the more experience she gets."

In commenting on the collaboration, an enthusiastic Wayne Wonder said "A big ting dat, LL
nah guh jump pon just any track. Mi have nuff respect for him. This is big for the song,
and will attract even more ladies to it".

Hailing from St. Albans, Queens NY, LL Cool J is not only a pioneer of hip hop, but also a
current chart topper as well. He recently topped the Billboard pop charts with "All I
Have" collaboration with Jennifer Lopez. At 33-years old, LL Cool J has received two
Grammy Awards, written his autobiography 'I Make My Own Rules' and is the first rap artist
to score six consecutive platinum-plus selling albums and six gold singles. He has the
distinction of having the very first rap song to reach #1 on the Billboard R&B charts,
when "I Need Love" soared to the top in 1987.

Wonder's album "No Holding Back" which was released on VP/Atlantic Records on March 4, has
to date sold more than 200,000 copies. The album's first single "No Letting Go" is
currently #14 on the R&B chart, #21 on the Hot 100 chart and #10 on the Rap Singles chart.
It had spent 6 weeks at #1 on the New York reggae charts last year.

Over the years, quite a few reggae artistes have teamed with rap and hip hop acts for
remixes. Among them are Spragga Benz, Shabba Ranks, Mad Cobra, Don Yute, Stephen Marley
and most recently Sean Paul.
