General Assembly and hopes to recognize the “relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world” and in public policy objectives.

To celebrate, Zumba is launching a video campaign set to the contagious remixed track of “My Jam,” performed by internationally famed Dancehall artist Mr. Vegas featuring Pitbull.

Zumba is inviting fans across the globe to join the movement and upload their own happy dance to “My Jam” on Instagram with the hashtags #zumbahappy and #InternationalDayOfHappiness for the chance to win various prizes.

“Pitbull contacted me and said, ‘I want you to hear this song because it makes me even happier than ever,'” recalled Zumba CEO Alberto Perlman. “As soon as I heard ‘My Jam,’ I knew it was the perfect song for International Day of Happiness — and today we share it in order to inspire others.”

“My Jam” has also been nominated to MixRadio and the UN’s “#HappySoundsLike” campaign, the world’s happiest playlist created to celebrate International Day of Happiness.

Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from “The Son Of Selassie” a.k.a. Max Romeo. Titled “Chase The Devil“, this was produced by Lee “Scratch” Perry with backing by “The Upsetters” band in 1976 for Island Records. It was also a single included in Max’s 4th studio album, “War Inna Babylon“. The song brings forth a “Good conquering evil” theme where the Devil is being a negative force on Earth and when Max dons his Iron shirt, he will fight the Devil and send him to outer space. Max later explained that the Devil is everything negative in our minds and the Iron shirt is our strength of spirit that allows one to cast out the Devil.

NEW VIDEO: @TuchPointMusic Presents: @TeffTV – Too Sober


Tefftv

This goes out to all those who just wanna have fun. Today’s new lyric video comes from Dancehall artist Teff. Titled “Too Sober“, was directed by The Parris Agency who brought lots of neon colours to compliment the track. On the single, produced by TuchPoint Music on the “Clarendon Riddim“, Teff speaks on showing interest in the ladies, but is not looking for love. Teff also states that he’s too drunk to care, and too sober to fall in love with anyone. A great effort here as this is the single that requires you to grab a girl out of the crowd and let her grind on you. Enjoy the moments responsibly and listen out for more singles off the Clarendon Riddim. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

Today’s Oldies Sunday is dedicated to Singer, Actor and Activist, Harry Belafonte who celebrates his 88th birthday. His most famous song, “Banana Boat Song (Day O)” is the featured selection. Released in 1956 by RCA and written by Irving Burgie and William Attaway, this was adapted from the song Jamaican Banana Workers would sing while they toiled on the docks. The song was also featured on Belafonte’s million unit selling “Calypso” album. Harry achieved great success with this single as it peaked at #5 on the Billboard charts in 1957, made its debut performance on The Muppet Show, made an appearance in the 1988 film “Beetlejuice“, and has over the years been covered by many artists. Despite the previous version of the song and the covers, Harry Belafonte’s version stood out the most and has become one of his signature songs.

Happy Birthday Harry Belafonte and thank you for this song!
