‘Replay’ Writer M’Jestie Helps Turn the Music Up

Posted in News on August 7, 2005

BMI songwriter M'Jestie stopped by the New York office to celebrate her first hit song with BMI executives from the Writer/Publisher Relations department. Dubbed this summer's smash, "Pon De Replay" is burning up the dance floors as well as the charts, camped out for the last 10 weeks at #2 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

M'Jestie co-wrote "Replay" with 17-year-old Barbados native Rihanna, whose debut album, Music of the Sun, hits stores August 16. Fueled by Caribbean beats with a mixture of reggae, hip-hop and R&B, the dancehall anthem is giving DJs everywhere a reason to "turn the music up."
