Relationships aren’t perfect, no matter what Social Media tells you. It takes work, and some reassurance is needed. Today however, we introduce you to a young lady who hails from Trinidad & Tobago by the name of Chinaka. We present to you the visual for her debut single, “Make Me Whole“. Directed by Shannon Britto and shot at Idlewood Bespoke, Chinaka comes through with a smooth R&B track produced by Kevin Beharry that’ll have you wanting to pick up the phone, call that one you love, and try to mend that broken parts of your relationship. We just want to be whole again, and be loved. Keep this Artist on your radar, she’s going places. Check out the track below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Have you all seen the new season of Luke Cage on Netflix? If you have, you’d notice the Jamaican influence throughout as Luke’s latest antagonist is a Jamaican by the name of “Bushmaster“. While that is pretty cool, many Jamaicans weren’t pleased with the representation of the Island, including the cringe-worthy butchering of the accent. While Writers Sharine and Andrayspoke about it earlier after a discussion with some of the folks behind the series, we’d like to look back at the times our accent was given a huge dose of injustice in Film. If only Hollywood would take the time out to do some proper research, and give natives a chance at properly representing the 876. If you’re interested in the Jamaican music played throughout, check out our latest playlist here. Check out these clips, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Gabourey Sidibe – Tower Heist
If you’ve never seen this Eddie Murphy flick, you probably dodged a bullet. Anyway, while there were some decent scenes in this Comedy, this section is dedicated to Gabourey Sidibe’s role as Jamaican Odessa Montero. Pretty cringe worthy, even though the team behind it praised her role as “Refreshing“. Refreshingly bad I must say. Check out the clip.
Dropping something new today is Recording Artist Dayz Dubois (also known as “Hard Dayz“).

The Unruly Boss is on the move again as he gears up to release his upcoming album, “Forever“. While he released “Body So Good” earlier this year, he gives fans a double dose today with the tracks “Wine For Me“, and “Firm & Strong“. With Dre Skull handling the production, these were premiered earlier on Apple’s Beats 1 Radio. One was made for the Caribbean beauties and cuties to wine to, while the other was made for those who are trying to stay above the stress, negativity, and drama. While Popskull is showing up in various countries currently, he has to ensure that your ears are blessed with some good music. It’s still “Forever SZN“.
