Happy Sunday folks! Today we’re keeping the same 2000’s energy on “Oldies Sunday“! Today’s selection comes from Reggae Artist, Abijah with the single, “Revelation“! Produced by Mikey Bennett and released through Matluk Music in 2001, the song finds Abijah showcasing spiritual and prophetic lyrics as he spoke about pending wars and injustice that ravishes the world, and calling on the Lord. A near miss of death and a dream were the inspiration for this song as Abijah was within inches of a stray bullet during a shootout while living in Vineyard Town, St. Andrew.
After the release of “Revelation”, the song quickly became a hit and placed Abijah as an Artist to watch. The song spent 30 weeks on the Jamaican Music Charts, and found him performing in various locations around the world. “Revelation” was also featured on his 2003 “Abijah” album, and various Reggae Compilations shortly after. In the time that followed since the single’s release, Abijah went on to release more music, and perform with the likes of Tevin Campbell, King Yellowman, Nadine Sutherland, and Beenie Man with whom he remixed “Revelation” with. “Relevation” went on to be Abijah’s most recognizable track that he still performs to this day.

Put down your Rollies and Apple Watches, it’s all about the iced out Patek Philippe today. While he has been making some noise in 2018, the Vincy/Brooklyn Recording Artist J Kinggz starts off 2019 with the new video for his buzzing single, “Patek“! Directed by Director EAD/Ingenious Genies, we find the cops keeping tabs on the Artist as he goes about his day reading the papers, staying fresh in designer fits, and getting money. Eventually they make the bold move of invading his space, but end up being on the receiving end of J Kinggz’s sharing of the wealth. The single was released on January 6, 2018, and was featured on Kinggz’s “30 Days EP (The Life Changing Project)” which was released last November. Tell your Jeweler to put the AP down, get yourself a bust down Patek and stay shining on the haters. Be on the look out for more releases this year, including his recent collaboration with Dancehall Artist Flexxx on “Stack This Money” (Prod. by HIRATA).
