Their debut video “Crush featuring Rochelle and Duane” was released four months ago but has only recently begun airing on Tempo. Tempo Networks, LLC is a 24 hr. pan-Caribbean television channel broadcasting the music and culture of the Caribbean.
The video has steadily increased in airplay over the past three weeks and is now doing very well on the charts. After the first week the video was voted the 10th most popular video on the Cross Caribbean Countdown,(a countdown show on Tempo which features the most popular videosregionally and internationally). After the second week in rotation, it leapt from being the 10th most popular to being the 6th most popular video.

Members and management of The KORE would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has been voting diligently for their video “Crush” and would like to encourage fans and well-wishers to continue voting for “Crush”in the upcoming weeks.
