A big hit for Selena, who swipes it right down to the 'ram-pa-pa-pam-pam'. This track has been around since early summer; surprised folks here didn't know about it. Hopefully Buju and the producer of the '95 original, Donovan Germain make some $$ on it. Besides, didn't some female rapper already use those lines some years ago?

Selena Gomez Covers Buju Banton's "Champion"

More International pop entertainers continue to cash in on the dancehall reggae phenomenon.

Pop singer Selena Gomez who celebrated her 21st birthday yesterday, has done a remake of Buju Banton’s 1995 hit tune “Champion”.

The track starts with Buju deejaying the original lyrics before Selena comes in singing. The chorus features Selena who is reportedly still dating Justin Bieber singing the lines “Walk Like A Champion”.

So is Selena’s version of Buju’s smash single a hit or a miss? Take a listen…

I saw Selena singing this song at halftime, and tried to explain to my dad how strange it was to see a reggae song, that I listened to a lot during my first year of college, turned into a pop song being sung at halftime of a pro football game! I know that Selena just takes the chorus, and not the whole song, but still, who would've ever guessed that part of that song would be turned into a pop hit?!

Highly doubt anyone is getting paid anymore then when Reggae does Cover tunes (word for word) see Busy Signal for details. Also... Champion IS A POP SONG that happens to be a Dancehall tune as well. Many times the labels own these tunes and not the artist. I believe Sony owns the "Come Around" beat that Collie Buddz (along with a host of others) re released a couple years back.
