Squash Seeks Some “Peace Of Mind” On New Single!


Dancehall Artist Squash has been sitting high in his own lane all of 2022. With a collection of hits, he has ensured that he made a lot of noise in the Dancehall circles. While he has songs about living the good life and partying it up, he has his moments where he gets serious. On the new single, “Peace Of Mind“, he approaches with a different tone.

Produced by 6ix Real Records/Hemton Music, Squash seeks an escape. With so much going on the world, Squash prefers his own company, and wants no part of any of the craziness. Be careful of how you approach him though, you don’t want to see his wrong side. “Peace Of Mind” finds Squash in some dark places, but he knows that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. He shows his diversity, and we look forward to more from the “6ix Boss“.

Rygin King Shares His Pain Through “Therapy”!


Over 2 years ago, Dancehall Artist Rygin King was a victim of assault. In the assault, he experienced pain in the form of losing a loved one, and received critical injury as a result. While he lives to tell the tale, his injury paralyzed him in the process. He made the revelation of his paralysis recently to the shock of many around the world, but has gained massive support in the end. He recently announced his new album, “Therapy“, and we get to check out the music video for the title track.

Directed by Jay Badz, Rygin King finds himself in a support group in “Therapy“, and takes the spotlight to share his pain.

Kyng Tavii "Bad Slaves" on 13thStreetPromotions.com #Jamaica #EmancipationDay #KyngTavii #BadSlaves #Comedy #Caribbean

.@KyngTavii Looks To Start A Revolution In New Video!


Today, August 1, is celebrated as Emancipation Day in a few Caribbean countries. In Jamaica, it marks the day of the Emancipation Declaration in 1838, and many Jamaicans recognize it in through a series of events. Comedian Kyng Tavii wanted to do his part through content creation, and he gives us a new video called, “Bad Slaves“.

Kyng Tavii reenacts a day of Slavery where he and fellow slaves were toiling in the cane fields. With freedom on their minds, Tavii tries to put together a plan where he and the slaves can escape the Plantation, and join revolutionaries like Paul Bogle in Morant Bay to set Black people free. The plan quickly backfires when Tavii was abandoned by the fellow slaves, and when they were caught, he was given the task to watch over them. Will Tavii find success with his plan this time around? The video was not made to offend, but to show many to never forget their name and roots, and it also showed the sad reality that many will be quick to sell you out when times get tough.

Emancipate Yourselves From Every Form Of Slavery!

.@ShenYeng’s “Pon Mi” Lives Different Lives On @TikTok!


Over the past few months, users of the Social Media platform TikTok would hear the following opening line from various videos in their feeds, “P***y tight, p***y clean, p***y fresh…“. The song behind that is Dancehall Artist Shenseea’s 2018 single, “Pon Mi“. Produced by Dunw3ll, the single was an instant hit for the “ShenYeng” Artist, and it showed on streaming platforms Youtube, Apple Music, and Spotify. The original song was also loved on Instagram, but when it crossed over to TikTok, it became a different monster.

When “Pon Mi” made its debut on TikTok, the song would be used in dance videos, “fresh out the shower” selfie videos, and was even heavily used in Dog TikToker MisterMainer clips. Over the past few weeks, “Pon Mi” would enjoy a series of remixes that would make Romeich shed tears. Thanks to various Producers (including Ranvision) and DJs, “Pon Mi” was given Classical Music remixes, EDM remixes, 70s Pop remixes, Country Music remixes, K-Pop remixes, Hip Hop remixes, and just about any style you can think of. If we can predict it just a lil bit, the popularity of Shenseea’s “Pon Mi” may reflect exponentially in the streams, making it one of her most popular singles ever. With TikTok becoming the hot platform for Artists to gain major exposure, for old songs to get a new life, and for new hits to be made, we’re curious to see what will happen next.

In the meantime, keep it tight, clean, and fresh! Check out some of the TikTok clips below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

.@GyalKapone Gets The Ski Mask Ready For A “Mission”!


On June 19, 2020, Jamaican Creative GyalKapone made a big step as a Recording Artist with the release of her debut single, “Never“. Since then, she has created a great demand for her music, and not a week has passed without someone hitting her up to know when the next track is coming out. “Never” got her name buzzing in some areas, and we believe there is a bright future for her in the field. She finally emerged on her birthday (Sept. 25) with a brand new track called, “Mission“.

Produced by Kahtion Beatz and BeatsByDemitri, Gyalkapone shows another side of her that will amaze, or shock her listeners. On “Mission”, she is in need of some millions, and with some like minded friends, she sets out to get it. With a commanding presence on the track over a sinister production, GyalKapone is just letting you know that if you co-operate with her nicely, no one will be harmed. Just give her what she needs, and keep it moving. The track is screaming for a visual, and we promise you that it’s on the way, so stay tuned.
