Reggae is a force to be reckoned with in Hawaiʻi, with many major radio stations spinning it all day long. Back in August we did a live in-studio with Phat Joe on Island 98.5 (check out the iPhone video he shot here) and flew out to Hilo for an interview with Jake Show on Native FM. In September “Love You Better” hit the #4 spot on the Top 5 at 5 on Island 98.5 and in mid-July it was the #1 top requested song on the Big Island.
On January 1, 2012 our braddah Chris Lanuevo texted us while visiting his ʻohana back on O’ahu and said the DJ on 93.1 Da Pāʻina had just introduced “Kore Ionz from the Seattle area” before playing “Love You Better.” We were stoked! Since then, we’ve received weekly phone calls, texts, and Facebook messages from family and friends who have been requesting it and hearing it on the air. Last Saturday, we found out that “Love You Better” had just broken into the Top 15 on the station at the #13 spot, amongst some pretty nice company.
Mahalo nui loa for all the support! We’re also happy to report that “Love You Better” is currently our top selling single on iTunes. Request “Love You Better” on 93.1 Da Pāʻina today and help push it to #1! Aloha!
