Heavy D Misses His ‘Long Distance Girlfriend’

Last time we checked, Heavy D was doing some acting, slimmed down a bit by boxing in the gym, and was going just by "D." Looks like the more things change, they stay the same, at least when it comes to which moniker he chooses to go by. Add to that the dancehall vibes he is bringing to the game once again (see his singing stint with Supercat and Shinehead from the early '90s) with his appropriately titled album Vibes, and it looks like Dwight may be shaping up to try and be the next Shaggy. Hopefully not, but in the meantime, the video for "Long Distance Girlfriend" is stylized like those sexy videos from the turn of the century. The video also has Nia Long like all those sexy videos again from the turn of the century! It's all good, though. Heavy D gets an "E" for effort and an "NT" for nice try. We'll have to check out Vibes to see how nicely this Jamaican bredren translates his music into "Dancehall lite."

  1. Awww. I was hoping Heavy D's reggae album would be more like his big tune "Dem No Worry We" with Supercat.

    Not so much.

  2. WTF?!? this is NOT the Heavy D I grew up on! he needs to call Eddie F and the boyz and start supersizing his meals at Mcdonalds. This Reggae beat stuff is played out, all he has to do is ask Shaggy or Sean Paul how many albums they have sold in say the last 4 years.........:) Come on Heavy come better then this or go back to acting my brother, who do you think you are? Mr. Big Stuff? 🙂

  3. I thought u said this was a Heavy D vid. What's Sinbad doing in it? On da real I love the bum diggly D but I'm not feeling this one. Too old school I know he's grown musically with all the time he has spent away.

  4. Um... no... this is too watered down. If I didnt know that he was Jamaican, Id think he was an American faking it. If you gonna do it, go HARD with it.

  5. I prefer the Hevster rhyming. And this track should have been given to Sizzla. He'd have put the funk in it. 🙂
