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

Standard

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.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Happy Birthday @HarryBelafonte x Banana Boat Song (1956)

Standard

HarryBella

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!
