Skillibeng "Mr. Universe EP" on 13thStreetPromotions.com #Jamaica #Dancehall #Music #Skillibeng #MrUniverse #MrUniverseEP #Caribbean

.@Skillibeng Expands His Reach With The “Mr. Universe EP”!


Dancehall Artist Skillibeng saw his career jump to levels that were considered legendary a couple years ago. Thanks to his string of singles that displayed sharp lyricism and instant comparisons to Vybz Kartel, Skilli was at the top of the Totem Pole overlooking his competitors. Since 2021, his name went from widely celebrated, to being ridiculed by some through the quality of some of his releases. His album “Crocodile Teeth” didn’t live up to the hype for some, and many were questioning his legitimacy as a Lyricist. He stirred up quite the controversy, but his loyal fans remained championing him. With his eyes set on covering more International grounds, Skillibeng released his latest EP, “Mr. Universe“.

Titled after the 2020 single, Skillibeng gives us 5 singles that should be able to give new listeners an idea of what to expect from him. The songs featured aren’t new, but his “Rocket Launcher” collaboration with Rapper Rich The Kid and Popcaan, “Piana“, and “The Most Power” from the “Crocodile Teeth” album are featured. His controversial single “Whap Whap” featuring F.S. made it to the list, so this EP is more for those who are new to Skillibeng’s catalogue. We look forward to more projects from Skillibeng this year, including a rumored album that has a June release date.

Rhiya Luna Knows She’s “More Your Type” On New Single!


Singer Rhiya Luna returns with new music, and this one might get a few in their feels. She has been busy working on new music in the past few months, and now she’s back on the scene in time for summer. On her new single, “More Your Type“, she says some things that she can back up with ease.

Produced by VoxGad Music, Rhiya Luna gets a lil bold when speaking to an ex lover. While they may have gone their separate ways, she notices that the new Woman is not doing what she’s supposed to do. Rhiya lets him know that she’s still his weakness, and she’ll be waiting in the wings when he needs her near. Rhiya Luna speaks for many ex girlfriends who know how to push his buttons, and they know that when the new Woman slips up, she’ll go in and get her man. Expect more music from Rhiya Luna soon!

.@BugleAn9ted Wants His “Flowaz” On His Latest Single!


To say that Reggae/Dancehall Artist Bugle is underrated is an understatement. For over a decade, he has been providing nothing but quality music with a positive message that has travelled every part of the globe. As his fanbase continues to grow, his content continues to set the standard. Unfortunately, many do not recognize his greatness, and he has stepped out to address it. He does so in his latest single, “Flowaz“.

Produced by Gold Up Music, Bugle gives us the quality music that we have grown to love and enjoy, but also makes his case on why he deserves respect in the Jamaican music scene. While many are quick to hop on the latest trend or crown the newest sensation, many of the Artists who have been putting in the necessary work are often left out of important conversations. Bugle gives evidence of this through the scenario of an award show with the accompanying Music Video, which was directed by Khing Cam. Many Artists who never get love in their own home, tend to take their talents to other lands where they’re hailed and given accolades. Recognize Artists like Bugle before it’s too late.

Kris-Karz "Text Me." for 13thStreetPromotions.com #Jamaica #Miami #Dancehall #PopMusic #KrisKarz #13thStreetPromotions #Text #iMessage #Caribbean

.@Kris_Karz Gets Left On ‘Read’ On New Single, “Text Me.”


Remember “Free Nights“? For my Caribbean readers, the free SMS texts and minutes services offered by local Mobile Carriers were some of the best times when we first owned Cellphones. While those days have been replaced by Apps like Whatsapp, iMessage, Telegram, Facebook Messenger etc., we still go through some of the issues when communicating with someone. Anyway, we have new music from Producer/Recording Artist Kris-Karz, and it’s called, “Text Me.“.

On the track, Kris-Karz finds himself in a situation with a young lady where the communication has been going left a few times. While he shares a lot with her, she’s on the other line posting on Social Media, falling asleep to Grey’s Anatomy, and finding excuses to not get back to him. If he’s ugly just say that. These type of scenarios happen all the time, but it’s recommended that Communication improves on both sides, or just call it a day. Kris always finds himself in these games, and he’ll share a lot more when he finally releases his debut project sometime this year (*crosses fingers*).

We Highlight The Dave & Ansell Collins Classic, “Double Barrel” In Our Throwback Playlist!


In 1970, the duo known as Dave Barker and Ansell Collins a.k.a. Dave & Ansell Collins released their single, “Double Barrel“. Produced by Winston Riley, the song went on to become the second Jamaican produced track to top the UK music charts. From there it went on to sell numerous records, charted in the US, and introduced the world to a young Sly Dunbar, who played drums on the record. It became a classic, and was immortalized by many Artists through the technique of sampling. Today, for our latest #13thStreetThrowback Playlist, we highlight “Double Barrel”.

Featuring 50 tracks, the “Double Barrel” Playlist highlights a few covers, and songs that sampled the 1970 hit. From Special Ed’s infamous “I’m The Magnificent“, to Kanye West’sThe One“, and from Hip Hop to Electronic Music, “Double Barrel” has traveled near and far. When you hear “I’m…the magnificent!” on a track, just remember where it came from. Salute the great duo known as Dave & Ansell Collins!

GyalKapone's new single, "Mission" for 13thStreetPromotions.com #Jamaica #Dancehall #GyalKapone #HomeInvasion

.@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. If you’re new here, get familiar her debut single, and stick around as she seeks to build her catalogue.
