Masters At Work Ft. Puppah Nas-T & Denise Belfon - Work on 13thStreetPromotions.com #TrinidadandTobago #DeniseBelfon #Shenseea #MegantheeStallion #Lick #Caribbean #PutYourBackInItChallenge #Soca #HouseMusic #13thStreetPromotions #SaucyWow #DJFlex #PutYourBackInIt #NewYork

OLDIES SUNDAY: Denise Belfon Ft. MAW & Puppah Nas-T – Work (2001)


You know we had to do this. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection will be a little spicy as we take trips to Trinidad and Tobago and New York to check out MAW a.k.a. Masters At Work, Puppah Nas-T, and Denise “Saucy Wow” Belfon’sWork“.

Produced by MAW (a.k.a. Kenny Dope and Little Louie Vega) and Puppah Nas-T and released through MAW Records and Tommy Boy Records, “Work” features Soca Artist Denise Belfon, who is the lead vocalist on the track. Listeners would be invited a showcase of double entendres as Denise is need of someone who would take their “broom” to “sweep her yard” with emphasis on “put yuh back in it“, and “going downtown“. The song features a mix of House Music and Calypso sounds, which provides an enjoyable listen (a guilty pleasure for those who have a thing for double entendres and suggestive lyrics).

“Work” was a successful single for MAW, Puppah Nas-T, and Densie Belfon as the track charted high on the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart peaking at #7. “Work” was popular in various countries including the US, South Africa, Brazil, and various Caribbean countries including Trinidad and Tobago. “Work” would enjoy a long shelf life thanks to various remixes of the track done by Global Deejays and Danny Marquez, Theo Schwarz, Riffs and Rays, and others. A remix of “Work” done by DJ Flex and Equiknoxx in 2019 became a viral sensation on Social Media thanks to various wining videos made for it on TikTok, Twitter, and Instagram. On January 21, 2022, “Work” would be given more life again thanks to Dancehall Artist Shenseea, US Rapper Megan Thee Stallion, and US Producer Murda Beatz sampling it for the controversial single, “Lick. Where will “Work” find itself next?

THANK YOU MAW, PUPPAH NAS-T, AND DENISE BELFON FOR THIS CLASSIC!

Jula Fatstash Takes Care Of Business On “Banga Phone” Single


Dancehall Artist Jula Fatstash seeks to make 2022 a year where he takes his career to the next level, and make his name expand to more platforms and speakers around the world. Based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, he took a brief hiatus to make necessary adjustments in his game plan, so his return finds him becoming more consistent in his releases, and expanding his creativity. Now with a fresh start, he steps out with the release of his new single, “Banga Phone”.

Produced by Damien C and released through BassHall Records, Jula Fatstash shows off his lyrical prowess on “Banga Phone”. Utilizing the “Shatta Style” of Dancehall made popular on the Island of Martinique, Jula not only displays witty lyricism on “Banga Phone”, but handles the production effortlessly, and gives us a song that is also catchy. Fatstash expects “Banga Phone” to become a fixture in various spaces after its release, giving him a greater audience and buzz for follow up releases. Accompanying the “Banga Phone” single, is a music video directed by Paravizy, marking it Jula Fatstash’s first piece of visual content for the year. He is also expanding his digital presence by releasing a Fatstash NFT in conjunction with the Solana Blockchain. 2022 promises to be a content heavy year for Jula Fatstash, and he looks forward to support in all forms throughout.

Get A Taste Of @ShenYeng & @TheeStallion’s “Lick” Single


2022 may have started off in a not so great way (Covid is doing numbers still, stay safe!), but we give thanks for new music, right? Making a splash here today, is the combination of Dancehall star Shenseea, and US Rapper Megan Thee Stallion as they deliver a song that will stir up a few conversations. Today we hear the track, “Lick“.

A collaboration that was anticipated since the two met, Shenseea and Megan Thee Stallion made a bold step with the release of “Lick”, which was produced by Murda Beatz. With the topic of Oral Sex still finding its balance in Jamaica, the ladies made it very clear what they require from their lovers on the track. Shenseea borrows the hook from Trini Icon Denise Belfon’s “Work”, which was remixed and became very popular on Social Media thanks to a series of wining videos. While the song may rub some the wrong way, others may just find this to be a great addition to their Playlists.

As Shenseea continues to find her place on the International market thanks to collabs with Tyga, Masego, and Kanye West, and various celebrities endorsing her, expect “Lick” to become more than trending topic on Twitter. This isn’t Meg’s first collab with Caribbean Artists as she previously joined Popcaan on “Intercourse, and Cardi B on the infamous “WAP” single. How about iShawna on the remix?

Louchie Lou x Michie One - Rich Girl on 13thStreetPromotions.com #Jamaica #UK #Richgirl #Dancehall #GwenStefani

OLDIES SUNDAY: Louchie Lou X Michie One – Rich Girl (1993)


Make sure you’re working towards your finances when you hear today’s Oldies Sunday selection. Today, we take a trip to the UK to check out Louise Gold and Michelle Charles a.k.a. Ragga/Soul duo Louchie Lou and Michie One’sRich Girl“.

Released through Fashion Records in 1993 (originally 1992 with Sly & Mafia’s “Riot” on the B Side) on the “Fever Pitch Riddim“, “Rich Girl” was Louchie Lou and Michie One’s debut single. The track was inspired by the 1964 track “If I Were A Rich Man” from the “Fiddler On The Roof” Musical. The track found Louchie and Michie sharing lyrics about getting out of Poverty and what they’d do if they were wealthy, but also share that no matter how much money they’d have, they’d never change who they truly are, and money can’t buy love and happiness. “Rich Girl” helped to get Louchie Lou and Michie One’s name out there, but wasn’t an instant hit for them.

Since the release of “Rich Girl”, they duo went on to find chart success, and release albums until they disbanded in 2000. In 2004, American Pop star Gwen Stefani and American Rapper Eve sampled “Rich Girl” for their single, “Rich Girl“, which was produced by Dr. Dre. It went on to become a multiplatinum success.

Kris Karz - Reciprocation on 13thStreetPromotions.com #Jamaica #Miami #Florida #Music

.@Kris_Karz Starts The Year Off With “Reciprocation”


Kicking off the new year with music is Producer/Recording Artist Kris-Karz! While he made a return to music releases late last year, he’s ready to take his career to the next level. With a project seeing a possible release later this year, Kris is setting up for a great rollout. Still relatively new to the scene as a Recording Artist, he is leaving great impressions with every song. We hope it doesn’t change with the release of the track, “Reciprocation“.

Turning up the tempo on this one, Kris-Karz gives us some slick lyrics paired with some jammin’ production that Musicians Keshawn Allen and Coombs assisted with (inspired by late Rapper Mac Miller’sSelf Care” album and made at Producer J.L.L.’s house) that is sure to make him stand out this year. Kris isn’t your average Producer, so you’re not gonna expect nothing less as an Artist. With lyrics that find him going through the adventures of love and relationships (with some back seat action going on), listeners will relate to this one, and definitely show it a lot of love. We look forward to the visual for this one. If you’re not familiar with Kris-Karz yet, check out his content here.
