Tiana, whose real name is Danielle Shand, is hoping for similar luck with her remake of the 1992 track, which was released a week ago.
20 years ago, a hot young deejay named Buju Banton topped dancehall charts with the rocking Batty Rider. Produced by Penthouse Records, it was one of his breakout songs.
“So far, the response has been really good and I really hope it will reach places,” she said.
Her version of Batty Rider was co-produced by Chris Rock and Australian Fireside. The song’s raunchy lyrics suit Tiana’s new outrageous look.
A few weeks ago, she traded her conservative image for one she describes as “bold, blond and bald”.
