TikTok Video: The Latest Addition to ‘Jota on the wing’

Ellie Dixon’s ‘Jota on the wing’ has received a bucket load of attention on social media in recent weeks, as the rendition is simply fantastic. We have seen other musicians get inspired by her talent, and choose to add their own part to her track. So far we have had Ellie on vocals and guitar, Bemz chiming in with a rap, and RoberLangdrums providing the percussion. So, the next logical addition would be a bass guitar, and this is exactly what stevieoneill5 has done…

@stevieoneill5My lad getting in on the act! Im gonna buy maracas off Amazon and do my take next week! 💚🍀🎸♬ original sound – stevieoneill5

Vocals from the wonderful Ellie Dixon started this, then we had rapper adding his own flava to The Celtic tune, next it was the drums and now we have bass guitar as Jota on the Wing just keeps getting better and better. Have a listen…

Jota on the Wing, the story so far…

Here’s the story so far ahead of today’s brilliant bass guitar update that must surely be released as a single – perhaps it’s something that The Celtic Foundation could look at?

Drums added to Ellie Dixon’s Jota on the Wing – ‘Man, this just gets better and better”

“Man, this just gets better and better!…” says Celtic Tour Guide Davie McLaughlin and Ellie Dixon’s acoustic version of her take on The Celtic supporters Jota on the Wing after the initial update from rapper Bemz, Ellie’s version of Jota on the Wing is now subjected to a third update this time with drums added!

Here’s some feedback from Celtic fans…

“Fantastic I’ll be singing it all day now,” Tony…”Love it, love it,” Maura McColgan…”That is brilliant,” Chris Donnelly…”I’d buy that album,” Just some guy…”we’ve got a wee drummer now too,” Mouse…”Fantastic,” Paudie Murphy…”Brilliant. Needs to go on iTunes,” JmpD67…

New versions of Jota on the Wing emerge as Ellie Dixon wants Celtic Park gig…

Ellie Dixon’s Jota on the Wing has new versions from Rapper Big Bemz and also Electronic DJ Martin Morgan and Ellie wants to play live at Celtic Park in front of 60,000 Celtic supporters…

There simply has to be an on-stage collaboration in the offing, after Scottish rapper Big Bemz added some superb lyrical layers to Ellie Dixon’s outstanding acoustic version of the Celtic support’s celebration of our Superstar from Portugal, Jota’s terrace chant.

And if that’s not enough the Glasgow based, Celtic supporting DJ Martin Morgan has released his own electronic take Ellie Dixon’s cover of Jota on The Wing – Our superstar from Portugal, which would be ideal for George Bowie’s GBX  audience which is on Clyde 1 after the football on a Saturday evening. Can’t see this one getting an airing though!

Ellie’s version went down a storm after she initially performed Jota’s song – adapted from MC Finchy’s Ozone Bounce – on Radio Five Live’s Patrick Kielty show last weekend. And the singer with an outstanding singing voice then promised a longer version, something she released on social media just prior to Celtic winning the League Cup Final against theRangers last weekend.

Now rapper Bemz, who quickly became a bit of a cult hero among Celtic fans after wearing the Hoops on stage for his BBC Introducing performance last November, and also wore a Lisbon Lions anniversary shirt for his performance at the Reading and Leeds Festival, has also added to Ellie Dixon’s craft with some lyrical input of his own. With a most topical and delicious reference pointing to Celtic’s Glasgow Derby League Cup Final win from the weekend.

Yo, see the green and white on my chest, you know that I rep for the greatest.

“Us been the one from the ages, so dem man they need to have patience.

“When the see the boys in green coming down the wing, Taylor to Jota, we do it proper.

“2-1 to the Bhoys, they can’t stop us.”

Born in Nigeria, the rapper grew up in London before moving to Glasgow in his teenage years and was rewarded for his rise to fame – and representing the club across the country – when Celtic asked him to become involved with last year’s Christmas edition of the Celtic View.

Now all we need is a collaboration between the pair, and to see them performing Jota on the Wing at Celtic Park on a matchday. If we’re not getting too far ahead of ourselves, should Celtic win the league, then a performance on Trophy Day would be the ideal time to see that happen.

And why stop at just one song. It would be great to hear Ellie Dixon add her musical take on a few a few more from the Celtic songbook. Grace and The Fields of Athenry might be a good place to start – and perhaps Bemz can add his own touch of magic to those songs too.

And as this story continues to snowball Ellie Dixon has been speaking about the incredible reaction to her version of Jota on the Wing with the singer now desperate to play it live at Celtic Park.  And with Celtic fans asking her to do just that and also to release the track as a downloadable version then it seems that the momentum could see Jota topping the charts and Ellie Dixon playing her first number 1 live in-front of an audience of 60,000.

Cambridge-born Ellie told Scottish Sun: “I’m speaking to my label at the minute about what we want to do next. I’m happy we’ve got it out on YouTube and all the socials and I think we’re figuring out some things.
