This Feel-Good Number might just become Song of the Year


This Feel-Good Number might just become Song of the Year

Oh island life, where proverbs are as abundant as sun rays. Where even dilapidated houses have a welcoming charm and sea water is such a vivid reflection of the clear blue sky they seem woven into one dazzling tapestry. Where the people are as warm as the weather and the food is as delicious as the lifestyle.

Add some tropical music to the mix and you’ve brought it home. It’s a wonderful life, it’s a ‘Dushi Bida’. The production team behind this fitting feel-good video for this feel-good knockout by Jeon and Basic One legend Ataniro bring this winning combination in striking detail to the viewer. It starts off with a nod to the beginning of the 1996 Basic One classic video for ‘Suave’ and proceeds to take you on an all-encompassing tour of the spectacularly beautiful island of Aruba.

And the message is as inspiring as it is lovely: We should appreciate what we have because there are many people in the world who consider what we have a privilege. With 22.000 YouTube views collected in one day – no small feat for a video shot on a small Caribbean island – the fusion of these elements proved to be an effective formula.

This delightful tune might just follow in the footsteps of ‘Suave’ and become another Aruban classic.
