Shav-A Plays The Minister Of Tourism Role On “Island Girl”!


The world is filled with beautiful women, but there’s nothing like an Island Girl! Recording Artist Shav-A takes on the Minister of Tourism’s role with her latest single, “Island Girl”!

The single was produced by G Shav Music and E7E Music, and on the track Shav-A lets the world know that the Caribbean is where its at when it comes to beautiful women. While many have visited the Caribbean in search of love, there’s no turning back once an island girl is in the picture. With an infectious production that blends Dancehall and Afrobeats, this is the song to play at a high volume at all the Beach parties this summer. A video has been made for the single which was directed by Veinless Visuals, and features Sly Dunbar, Handel Tucker, and Speckle. It will be released in August on local TV programs, and on her official Youtube Channel.

When asked about the creation of “Island Girl”, Shav-A shared, “I wanted to do a song that highlighted Caribbean women and our beauty. We are the center of attention, we’re showstoppers, and people go crazy for us. As they say, “Caribbean girls run it, ask Riri and Nicki”. Making this song was fun as the guys just knew the right sound to go with my lyrics. I look forward to everyone loving this song just as much as we enjoyed creating it.

Shav-A has been staying busy this year as she has been hitting the road showcasing her talents, and releasing singles including “Father”, which was been receiving favourable airplay. Along with “Island Girl”, Shav-A plans to release more singles, and perform at some of your favorite venues in the coming months. “Island Girl” will be available on all major musical platforms to include Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, and Tidal.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Pat Kelly – Queen Majesty (1966)


Earlier today, we premiered Recording Artist Yanah’s new single, “Think Again, now we’re gonna feature its sample. On today’s Oldies Sunday, we look back at Pat Kelly’s classic, “Queen Majesty“! Produced by Duke Reid, the song was recorded by Pat Kelly while he was a member of the Rocksteady group, The Techniques (hence why many releases used The Techniques’ name). It was released through Reid’s Treasure Isle Production in 1967, but was featured on The Techniques’ 1966 album, “Little Did You Know“. The song was a cover of the Curtis Mayfield and The Impressions’ single, “Minstrel and Queen (Queen Majesty)” which was released in 1963.

The story was Pat Kelly and his friends were huge fans of the original track, so much so that they’d stay up at night to hear it at various times on Miami Radio station WINZ. This was so because the signal from Miami to Jamaica was very weak, so they struggled at times. Pat showed interest in covering it, but had no means to get the Record. After hearing it multiple times, he finally caught all the lyrics to the track and made a Reggae version. The single was released various times since 1967, and was remixed by King Jammy’s in the mid 1980s.

Though Pat Kelly parted ways with The Techniques years ago, he is still an active Recording Artist having released numerous singles, and even handled recording sessions as an Audio Engineer for the likes of the late Gregory Isaacs and Johnny Clarke.
