As July comes to a close, we take the time out to appreciate the beauty that is the West Indies. No matter which Island you reside in, there is an abundance of beauty there that makes it unique. Today, Jamaican Artists Jeeby Lyricist, Blvk H3ro and Kione Zaire show their appreciation for their Island on “Blessed Indies“! Produced by Wavy Jones, they all take turns expressing what makes their Island home special, and what you’re in for when you do visit. From St. E to Ochi, Mobay to Bull Bay, you can circle around town with this unofficial Jamaica Tourism campaign! Apply this to your respective Islands as we all are blessed in the West Indies. Artwork by the talented Kidding Art, check out the track below.

Relationships can be one of the most amazing things, but when it goes bad, it cuts deep for many. It’s never a pretty thing when you give your all, only to be left with hurt. Today, Singer Courtni debuts with “Broke My Heart“. Produced by J Beatz, she shares how the experiences in a bad relationship affect her ability to give her all in a future relationship. She states that no matter how genuine this new man is, and how great his intentions are with her, she refuses to let her guard down for him. It’s never easy to love again when that heartbreak comes in, time is the master though. A member of “Di Vibe”, Courtni steps out and holds her own on this one. Check out the track below.

Stella did it, Karlie Redd and Mimi Faust did it, and now Pop Artist Ivy Layne travels to Jamaica for a vacation (and more) in “One You Love (Get It Here)“! Directed by Bobby Yan and featuring the “Unruly Boss” Popcaan, Ivy sings about being with the one she loves and being away from it all with the one you love, a dream for many lovers out there. Shot in Portland, this features cameos from the likes of Dancehall Artist Prado, Dancer Chinny Unique, Singer Samantha J, and DJ Pup Dawg. The single was produced by Rohan “Snowcone” Fuller, and is on Ivy’s recently released “In Time (Download Here)” EP. Popcaan has been on a roll lately as he has worked with Gorillaz, performed overseas, and will be a part of the Red Bull Culture Clash next month in Atlanta, Georgia! Woiyoii! Watch the video below.
After waking up Jamaica with his crimson tinged single earlier this year, the official visual for Protoje’s “BLXXD MONEY” is finally here! Directed by Che Kothari with Production by Claire Osman, viewers get a glimpse of the many forms of corruption, a broader look than the lyrics which spoke about corruption in high places, and the various turns made throughout its running time. The video targets every class, and those who practice the dirty ways will eventually see a fall. A statement making song that turned into a powerful video, more like “What A BLXXDCLXXT Film“! Watch the visual below.
