Standard

artworks-000089145541-l2igqy-t500x500

Today’s new music comes from Canadian singer Lucas DiPasquale. You may remember him from gaining quite a following for covering a few of Deejay Popcaan’s singles. Here he steps out with “Make My Rounds“. Produced by Mini of E5 Records on the “Beach Life Riddim“, Lucas speaks on leaving Canada to visit Jamaica and the things he’s dealing with back home, mainly being apart from his lady. He also tells his lady that all the moves he’s making will pay off in the end, and he lets listeners know that his cover video that made him popular is getting old and he needs to bring new things to the table. Not a bad effort here from the singer, I’d like to hear this live very soon. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

From a little town on a small island, “Rude Boys”, the brand new music video performed by Jamaican singer & songwriter, Toian, made its debut on international television station MTV Jams on August 10, 2014.

The video was filmed in various locations around Montego Bay, Jamaica and features a cast of bikers, police cars, school girls, bandannas, white sand beaches, coconut trees and of course “Rude Boys”.

“We wanted to capture an authentic perspective of everyday life in Jamaica,” said director & producer Sean Alaric of Class One Music. “That’s what brought the concept to life.” 

Inspired by her favorite reggae tracks from the 80’s era, Toian recorded the song at the Class One Music Studios in Florida, with backing live instruments adding to the sound of her signature flavor. Having previously collaborated with the likes of multi-platinum selling producer Don Corleon as well as popular reggae & dancehall acts such as Protoje, Konshens & Chevaughn, the multi-talented songstress is now gearing up to share her debut EP album, “Retrospect”, with the world in late 2014.

“Rude Boys” is available for download globally through a variety of online retailers including Amazon.com, Spotify the iTunes Music store at – http://goo.gl/TNcdW4
