The colorful clip was directed by Dan Streit and Lindsey Nico Mann and features a 1980s theme video. The cut starts out with Busy Signal sitting while surrounded by four monkeys.

Last week, Ding Dong took a jab at Busy in a new song “Flare” signalling that there is a feud going on between the two artists. The Turf boss responded with a hardcore dancehall joint but never specifically name it as a Ding Dong diss record. Watch the music video for “My Time Now” below.
With Sting coming to an end last year, dancehall currently has no live platform for hard clash anymore, but that isn’t stopping artists from stirring up new feuds. Dancer turn deejay, Ding Dong, released a new single last week “Flare” where he took a surprising jab at Busy Signal leaving everyone to figure out what’s really going on between the two of them.
“Yo no see the Ravers crew flare / Mi diamonds a canary, every dogs wa mi roll with scary / Yo see me cloth and me car wash daily / A wah yo think man lame / Mi no Busy Signal no call Gary,” Ding Dong deejay. In one of his biggest singles to date “On More Night,” Buys Signal has a line that can easy be misinterpreted. “Hear me gimme one more night girl / A million more night cuz I can’t sleep without you,” Busy sings. That line can easily be confused with “Gary gimme one more night.”
Busy Signal drops a brand new track “Stay So” this week where he took shots at his haters. Some dancehall fans think that he is specifically taking shots at Ding Dong.
