NEW MUSIC: @ShaeMill x Lady G – Rock And Come In

Standard

Shae Mill

It’s that time to put on your best clothes, get the DJs ready, the bar stocked and party with Shae Mill and Lady G’s new single. Titled “Rock And Come In” and produced by Indie-Rootz Records on the “Royalty Dub Riddim“, the song brings together a legendary artist and a fast rising artist to encourage everyone to party together and promote unity. This is a song thatĀ will have you feeling like you’re in one of those old school street dances slow dancing with your partner. A great effort here from the two, I can imagine a couple special remixes to this song. This could be the first of many from the two.

Premiering a new song today in the form of a lyric video is Reggae artist, Protoje. Titled “Stylin‘”, this was directed by Yannick Reid with shots by Nickii Kane, Art Direction by Taj FrancisĀ and features Kandi King. Great song here with a visual that is pleasing to the eye. A part that I really enjoyed was Protoje’s use of the Talk BoxĀ in the chorus. Enjoy the visuals, sing the lyrics and look out for Protoje’s 3rd studio album “Ancient Future” which is scheduled to be released in 2015.
