Dancehall sensation, Alkaline has once again courted controversy in Dancehall circles after a lyric in his new single released on the Igloo Riddim late last week raised eyebrows as he suggested enjoying anal stimulation during sex.

Near the end of the raw version of his song, Touch You, Alkaline sings a lyrics claiming that after receiving oral sex from a girl, saying ‘batty wash, dat a brawta.’ ‘Batty wash,’ in Jamaican terms, refers to when one person has his or her anus licked during a sexual act, an act which continues to be taboo among Jamaicans.

The song has garnered close to 60,000 in three days since its release on YouTube, earning criticism from music lovers for promoting such an act in his music.

Top-draw Dancehall and Reggae musicians also weighed in, with the ‘Queen of Dancehall,’ Lady Saw telling the Jamaica STAR, "I can' relate to the story, that is so gross. Everybody wants to be Vybz Kartel, I can't even comment on it.”

Reggae star, I-Wayne, however, was less subtle with his remarks.

"Him a try see if him can go further than Vybz Kartel, and any man try beat Kartel will find themselves in serious mess and trouble,” he told the newspaper. "Dem realise sey from yu guh freaky yu get more attention more than the youth dem wey a duh positive music. Dem just a try get fame and a materialism a cause that. I don't think Alkaline would want his daughter to lick out a man anus. Dem talk deh a nuh life talk.”

Alkaline has said very little about the song since its release, but seems unapologetic about the lyric, saying on his official Facebook page, "How mi fi tek it too far when all mi sing bout a weh me see a gwan # wat a brawta, lol.”

Since breaking out in 2013, Alkaline has become one of Dancehall’s most polarizing figures, despite having yet reached his 21st birthday. The deejay famously tattooed his eyebrows to the shock of many during the year.

This year, during a stage show he hosted in Kingston, a female fan came on stage and simulated oral sex on him while he performed.
