@DonAndre Explains Meaning Behind New Single “In It (Ain’t It)”


Hot newcomer, Don Andre is keeping his momentum on a high with a brand new release titled, “In It (Ain’t It)”. The track premiered earlier this week on Jamaica’s popular radio station, Zip FM.

Don Andre explained what the song was all about, “The term “In It (Ain’t It)” is just an English figure of speech that is frequently used amongst youths aging from as young as five years old. People outside the UK are usually fond of this slang, so I thought it would a great idea to make a song about the term, “In it”.”

“In It (Ain’t It)” was produced by prominent radio personality, ZJ Dymond’s Full Chaarge Records. The single will be available via all major music outlets for pre-order on September 9th, with an official release on September 23rd. The track is distributed by 21st Hapilos.

Don Andre came to prominence via his remake of the Shabba Ranks classic, “Needle Eye”, which peaked at #1 in Costa Rica. He has been nominated as Best New Artist of the year for the prestigious IRAWMA, among other awards. His ”Tom Cruise” single and dance move are also top contenders in their relevant categories.

@IAmRaytid Defends TGE Label In New Single


As the heat of the “Clash Season” rises, it seems that tempers are flaring at the True Gift Entertainment (TGE) Recording Studio as Dancehall Artist Raytid releases a diss track aimed at Dancehall Artist, Versi.

The song, which is titled Burial Ground, is an answer to a track done by Versi which took shots at Recording Artist Demarco and his ‘Bun Up Gang’ (TGE), the camp to which Raytid is signed. This new ‘beef’ came about since Demarco recorded the controversial track We Run the World, to the disapproval of Versi as he replied on a Riddim produced by Jay Crazie, former Studio Engineer at TGE.

In Dead Already, Versi threw jabs at the “Bun Up Gang” boss for referring to him as ‘dead’ on TGE’s controversial web series, “Talk Yuh Mind” and counteracts Demarco’s We Run the World. While the drama brewing may seen frivolous in some circles, Raytid’s Burial Ground, which was produced by Social Yaad Records, fires lyrical shots at Versi, calling him a ‘dirty child’ and a Groupie. The song came as a surprise to many as Raytid has always been making party singles, and no “Clash Ready” tunes. Fans of the two await further developments as tensions rise.
