Eustace Hamilton (born 14 August 1969), better known by his stage name Thriller U, is a Jamaican reggae singer-songwriter.[1] Thriller U’s style is similar to that of Frankie Paul. His 1989 recording of "It’s Over", produced by Hugh "Redman" James, was a hit and he toured the UK on the strength of it. The song was a lament to an unfaithful lover, over a classic rhythm with an irresistible riff. He released a number of singles, including "Big Bamboo", "Private Property", "Are You Really Ready For Love", "I’ll Prove It To You", "Where Would I Go" and "Since You Came Into My Life". He also recorded with Pan Head ("Run Down The Man"), Flourgon ("Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"), and Johnny P ("Young And She Green").
