Eddy Kenzo – “Sitya Loss” (Video)

I fell in love with this song ever since I saw a youtube video of a few kids in Africa dancing too it. At the time I had no idea of who the artist was & had to take the time to track it down. Eventually I discovered the song was from Musuuza Edrisa who is a popular artist in East African widely known as “Eddy Kenzo”. The Ugandan born artist’s song ‘Sitya Loss’ is going viral in popularity thanks in large part to the original youtube video of the kids dancing in the clip. The video of the kids dancing has become so popular it’s even spawned various remixes like the Stanton Warrior’s video of ‘Loving Me Wrong’. Check out this brand new video from Eddy Kenzo as he joins the kids that made the song become more popular internationally. The remixes & original videos I’ve included after the jump. I’m glad I’ve finally found this song as it’s been promptly added to my itunes playlist & I’ve had it on repeat multiple times since then.

Popcaan – “Everything Nice” (Video)

Another good video from Popcaan for his Mixpak single release. Now when we say good, I really mean the camera work and process of a video as it compliments the tone of the song. Very few times in the ‘entertainment’ industry does the hype match the content and this time the lack of excitement was the correct way to highlight this song… #Salute

The Dividends – “Fool’s Gold” feat. Raekwon

artworks-000064634634-9sqeut-t500x500

The Dividends (singer Sarah Jaffe + producer S1) recruited Raekwon for some Wu spice on a reggae-bouncy single off their upcoming EP “Far From Away” (due out 2014). The infusion of a raw rapper can switch the flavor of a track in an instant… mellow, and then BOW! Smooth with the roughness to finish. But this “Fool’s Gold” good stuff nonetheless.

Terry Crews Stars As ‘Major Lazer’ (Video)

It’s a TV show teaser… no wait, a music video for “Scare Me” featuring raunchy dancehall queen Timberlee and Peaches. Whatever it is, it’s got DC Comics’ cyber-warrior Major Lazer brought to life in HD by Terry Crews. The visuals have ‘opening credits’ and what is, in effect, a mini-pilot of the Major Lazer TV show… which may or may not be a real show (but might make a cool one). Check it out!

“Scare Me” is available on the “Free The Universe” LP by Major Lazer (out on iTunes now).

R&B: Estelle – “Be In Love” feat. Jeremih

estelle-jeremih-be-in-love-single-leadAs a fan of reggae/dancehall & dub music I can really appreciate when good singers get together over this type of island breezy production. British singer Estelle enlists fellow R&B singer Jeremih to get down with her on this “Be In Love” track from her upcoming “Love & Happiness: Vol. 2 Waiting To Exhale” EP that will be released on her own label imprint New London Records.  I’m feeling the latest push by a number of true R&B/Soul singers taking chances with more island style production in their music.

ESTELLE FEAT. JEREMIH – BE IN LOVE

Reggae/Dancehall: Wayne Marshall – “I Know” (Video)

Say Grace For The Pum Pum (Video)

ANOTHER hilarious video from Roger B, ‘A Cunnilingus Prayer’ covers healthy behavior of adults and how men need additional protection from the most high! Eating aka nyam-ing and the stigma facing Caribbean men/women is still a personal choice and this just adds to the jokes DJ, selectors and bloggers will chat-bout for the rest of the summer, however could this become the norm?
