New York’s out-of-nowhere sensation Bobby Shmurda just might have the song of the summer with “Hot Nigga,” but he’s about to add more fire.

The 20-year-old Jamaican-Trinidadian spitter is putting on for his West Indian people with an official dancehall remix to his viral hit, which hit No. 52 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. Shmurda says Movado, Popcaan, Junior Reid and Jah X are hopping on the “Modmon” revamp.

The GS9 boss says the remix should hit just in time for the annual West Indian Day Parade, which takes place Sept. 1 and treks Brooklyn’s Eastern Parkway, not far from the block where Bobby’s signature dance first went worldwide. The shockwaves of the Jahlil Beats-produced “Hot Nigga” have already far exceeded New York City.

“Jamaica’s already going crazy, they got me in the newspaper and all that,” says Bobby, who made a surprise appearance during last night’s New Jersey stop of the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour. “Movado called me yesterday saying they be talking about me all on the radio [in Jamaica].”

There are plans for another “Hot Nigga” update—Chris Brown, French Montana, Jadakiss, Busta Rhymes are names that have been thrown around—but Shmurda lives up to his alias (shh!) when it comes to speaking about guests on the second remix. As for this weekend’s big parade in Brooklyn, Bobby is skipping this year’s festivities.

“I’ve been to enough of those,” says Bobby. “I’ma get into trouble if I go out there.” —John Kennedy
