I get so much music in my inbox and I ent goin lie, I can barely keep up, so I’m compiling some of the more recent songs I’ve gotten or liked or heard about here, aight. Below we have music from Kayyo (Dominica), Roxxy (St. Martin/Anguilla), Cover Drive (Barbados) Dionne Blaize (Grenada), Konshens (Jamaica), Mavado & Karian Sang (Jamaica), Marcia Griffiths (Jamaica), Scrappy (Montserrat), JLS (UK/Barbuda/Jamaica) and Chucky (Trinidad)
Kayyo is from Dominica (D.A Baby!!!!) and is definitely coming out strong with his laid back hip-hop flow…. Check it out in the video for “Get To Know You” below….very reminiscent of Will Smith “Summertime”…
Roxxy (Roxanne Webster) reps for both St. Martin and Anguilla. The singer tied with Trinidad’s Machel Montano (“Wibes Cyah Done”) to win the International Soca Award for Best Soca Video for her song “Delete”. Check out the clip below which was shot in Anguilla.
Bajan quartet Cover Drive feature Dappy on their latest release “Explode”. Check out the British rapper and band members Amanada, T-Ray, Jamar and Barman in the vid below:
Check out “We Belong togehter” by Grenada-born Dionne Blaize. It’s off her upcoming album Still Standing.
Dancehall’s Mavado links up with fellow Jamaican Karian Song on “Take It”, a Jamiacan-flavoured pop track produced by Troyton Hinds of Troyton Music.
Konshens adds some Jamaican flava to the Tropical Blendz and Mike D-commissioned remix of Miguel’s Adorn and dubs it “Take You Ova” . Adorn is the current number one single on Billboard’s R&B/hip-hop songs chart. It is the third number one single for Miguel.
Someone on YouTube called Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor’s Moving Riddim a “new classic”. Couldn’t have said it better, and I love all the songs on the riddim but I gotta feature another classic: Marcia Griffiths. Check out her “No, No, No” on the riddim below:
I like this riddim so bad other artists featured on it include Jah Cure “How Can I Forget”, Marcia Griffiths “No, No, No”, Anthony B “Give Praises”, Chino “Boom Draw”, Freddie McGregor “Be Alright”, Christopher Martin “What Can I Do (Without A Woman)” and Lutan Fyah “Hold A Medz”.
Montserrat is celebrating their 50th Festival and Scrappy, an artist known for soca chunes, dabbled in the dancehall genre for the celebration. This one is called “I Miss You”.
“The Hottest Girl In The World” is the latest single for the UK’s JLS. Though the quartet’s members are all England-born three of them share island roots: Marvin Humes and Aston Merrygold share Jamaican heritage and JB Gill’s roots are from Barbuda. Check out their Bangladesh-produced cut due for digital release October 21.
Chucky, Trinidad’s Independence Monarch’s first release since his win “I Never” is sure to be a hit in any soca fete. Oh gosh “I neva, I neva, I neva, I neva, man I neva wine on yuh girl….”
If you made it to the end….
