Ciara’s “Body Party” has been a popular single in recent months and today Jamaica’s BNJMN released his remix to the hit song. Titled the “Body Party (BNJMN Greezy Remix)“, the MikeWillMadeIt instrumental is swapped with a BNJMN production and the vocals are chopped up at various points. This “Body Party” just got a little more intense, all we need is a video remix to go with it. A really great effort here and should be pleasing to anyone who listens to it.

Dropping some consciousness today are Kabaka Pyramid and I-Wayne with their new video, “Versatile“. Directed by G’Ovany and shot by Mario Francis in Cassia Park and East Kingston, we see Kabaka and I-Wayne gather with their brothers and speak about the issues in society, artists promoting the wrong things, bigging up Tessanne Chin and her talent, and how we must all be versatile. We also see scenes where a youth steals from a vendor, an old lady needing old for her lamp and of course the rasta flag waving. I liked this song the first time I’ve heard it and I’m glad a video came out for it. What do you think? Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Dropping new music today is Jamaica’s Acmatic. Titled “Bottom Of The Bank” and produced by PlateFace and backup vocals from Sevana, we hear lyrics about dealing with expenses, sending family members to a psych ward, frustrations and washing away sorrows with alcohol. Many people in Jamaica are going through a few things especially when it comes to the cost of living. With new taxes, higher prices on even basic necessities and no increase in salary, many can’t handle it and take to the bottle to temporarily relieve that stress.

A few weeks ago, Vybz Kartel was not only found guilty of his crimes, but was also handed a life sentence. While many celebrated or felt disappointed, TVJ’s Anthony Miller released a documentary on the Dancehall Artist up to his sentencing. Titled “Dancehall Dark Star“, we see clips that chronicle Kartel’s journey from a new act working with Bounty Killa, his own fame, feuds and his arrest. If you were one of many who missed it, check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

Today’s new music comes from a Jamaican One Man Band, Scotty + The DreamKillers. Titled “Keep It Rocking” and features a production from JLA, this features a great Michael Jackson sample (Rock With You) while Scotty raps about chasing his dreams, never slowing down on his work, pushing on despite challenges and keeping it rocking. A great effort here and being a Michael Jackson fan I love this production. For clarification, Scotty + The DreamKillers is really a One Man Band where “Scotty” is the rapper and “JLA” is the producer. With a mix of Hip Hop, Rock, Dub, and Reggae, look out for more work from the Band, I know I will. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
In recognition of the recent Reebok Skyscape commercial, I present to you the song that was used in it from Dancehall artist, Sister Nancy. Titled “Bam Bam” and produced by the late Winston Riley for Techniques Records on the “Stalag Riddim” in 1982, Nancy speaks about being an ambitious woman, her lyrical prowess that will “nice up” Jamaica, growing up in Princeton 6, and being a very unique person along her infectious chorus “What a Bam Bam…“. “Bam Bam” was a single on Sister Nancy’s debut album, “One,Two” which was released in 1982 by Techniques Records. Sister Nancy is regarded as the first female Dancehall artist and the first female deejay to tour internationally. “Bam Bam” is her most famous single and borrows a little from Toots And The Maytals’ 1966 hit “What A Bam Bam“.
Khago was been hailed as one of Dancehall Music’s most promising acts. Releasing popular singles, Khago was a force to be reckoned with. However after management changes, Khago wasn’t as present on the scene as he should be so on Onstage he explained his situation to Winford Williams and more. He spoke about being lowkey, changes in management, touring, being a high demand overseas, his views on Dancehall currently, and preparing to flood the streets with new material. Khago is pretty busy overseas and that is good for promoting Jamaica’s music culture. As he said, check out youtube for tour highlights.

Many can recall last year when DJ Foota Hype and Singer IShawna were riding on the wave off news of their engagement. Since then they have broken off their engagement and terminated their long term relationship. Tonight on Onstage, IShawna says that she “Needs Love“. She spoke about her breakup with Foota Hype, furthering her career, still working with DownSound Records, and future projects. IShawna also premiered the music video for “Need Love“. Good to see IShawna still working and not letting her recent breakup affect her. I do hope things work out for her soon. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
