@OhYesMario Enlists @Konshens For The “Let Me Help You (Remix)”


US Recording Artist Mario has been busy lately. After releasing “Let Me Help You” last year off his upcoming “Cosmo 17” Album, he felt the Caribbean heat and called up Dancehall Artist Konshens for the remix! While the track already has an Island feel to it, Konshens steps in to sprinkle his Jamaican element to it. A song about being a selfless lover, Mario aims to make this another member of his hit collection this year. The Jamaican influence continues to make its move, stay tuned for another one. An early Happy Birthday (August 27) to Mario from 13th Street Promotions. The track is available for purchase on iTunes, but preview it below!

@KevinLyttle’s “Turn Me On” Sampled On @ChrisBrown’s “Questions”!


Amidst all the madness in the US this week, R&B/Pop Artist Chris Brown released a new single. Titled “Questions” (Get It Here), this was produced by A1 and Prince Chrishan and is a part of the Singer’s 40 track “Heartbreak On A Full Moon” Album which will be released later this year. For this track, Chris has drawn inspiration from the Caribbean in not only the Production, but in the lyrics. More notably, the song samples Soca Artist Kevin Lyttle’s 2003 smash hit, “Turn Me On” (Get It Here)! Hailing from Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Kevin Lyttle garnered International stardom with the lead single off his self-titled Debut Album. The song, which was produced by RedOne and Nely on one version, and Adrian Bailey on another which featured Dancehall Artist Spragga Benz, was also a top 10 hit in 15 different countries, saw Gold and Platinum certifications worldwide, covered/remixed numerous times, and was even re-recorded in 2008 for his second Album featuring Soca Artist Alison Hinds.

With Rihanna making headlines recently during Cropover in Barbados, was this Chris’ reaction? Check out the tracks below.
