Mole says until he is selling out arenas, it is time to continue to work and step it up a notch. (Picture by Krystal Hoyte.)

Reco “Mole” Cumberbatch had females old and young from near and far singing “well, well, well, well” for the duration of the just concluded Crop Over season.

Whenever that infectious beat started and the “short man with locks” touched the stage to perform his popular Crop Over song Breathe, the party was sure to go to the next level.

Though he did not win any competitions, Mole was arguably a favourite among partygoers.

But that song almost didn’t make it this time around. The 26-year-old said it was one of the nine songs he released for the season but admitted that it only picked up momentum after he dropped the explicit version of the song.

“My first release was Deh Wid Dum, which I brought out for [the Yello International Bashment Soca Monarch competition]. That song was one of nine I did this year and was one of the biggest ones in terms of response and getting bookings and so on. Then Breathe took on a whole persona of its own. That ‘upped the thing’ completely for me. Breathe was the sixth or seventh release for me but it picked up momentum after I released the explicit version. To be honest, though, I was going to put that out after the season, but something had me a bit offset, so I told myself let me just do it. And I did it and it worked out in my favour. That’s the best thing I ever did, was seriously the best choice I made all year,” he said, flashing his killer smile.

Mole said seeing the reaction to that song caused him to get emotional at times, seeing how people responded to it. He said he was also shocked to see some arguments happening over some lyrics in the song. He also took the time to clear up any misconceptions as to what he was actually singing. (DB)
