.@Davido & @DextaDapsMusic Deliver A “BOP”

Afrobeats Artist Davido has been through a few things in the past couple years. While he continues to heal from his dark times, music stepped in to help him, and he began creating. Out of those sessions come his latest album, “Timeless“. The album features 17 tracks, and includes a single that’s sure to make a lot of noise, “BOP“.

“BOP” was produced by Sparqq, and it features Dancehall crooner Dexta Daps. Davido and Dexta make a collaboration that promises to be a favourite for the ladies, and promote plenty of dancing. Dexta Daps has been busy performing in various parts of the world, and his collection of international collaborations continues to grow. Still holding his own as a ladies man in Dancehall, his music has definitely been speaking to them in various ways. With the new “Timeless” album, expect Davido to make a few moves in the coming weeks, and while he works on his healing journey, we hope for the best for him and his family. In the meantime, get to moving to this new track!

.@ShattaWaleGH Collaborates With Vybz Kartel On “Mansa Musa”

Ghana’s Shatta Wale is still running things, and his dominance has only grown stronger. The African Dancehall King continues to grow his following, asserting himself in every scene, and influencing many to follow in his footsteps. With a number of projects already in his catalogue, he made noise recently with his 5th studio album, “Maali“. One track has already secured a place in Dancehall history, and it’s called, “Mansa Musa“!

“Mansa Musa” is the long-awaited collaboration between Shatta Wale, and Vybz Kartel, and they show you why they reign supreme over a Damaker Studios production. The “GhanaGaza” connection finds them aiming to achieve more success, and delivering some of their best musically. “Mansa Musa” refers to the wealthiest King in history, and the deejays definitely have ambitions to become the wealthiest Kings in their respective leagues. Shatta has been oftentimes compared to the World Boss due to having a similar influence in his part of the world, but many were longing for a collaboration between them. While we hope for more in the future, we’re glad this one happened. Despite being incarcerated and failed appeal attempts, Kartel is still pressing on with new content, and keeping his name alive behind bars. The Dancehall Kings continue to rule.

.@JimmyCliff’s “Many Rivers To Cross” Featured In @TheEqualizerCBS Season Finale

The series stars Queen Latifah and Lorraine Toussaint, and is aired weekly on CBS. It’s inspired by the movie trilogy of the same name that stars Denzel Washington, and is a reboot of the 1980s TV series. This series is in its 3rd season, and during their latest episode, a familiar Reggae classic was featured.

In the season 3 finale of “The Equalizer” titled “Patriot Game“, Jimmy Cliff’sMany Rivers To Cross” closed off the episode. Co-Produced with Leslie Kong, the song was released in 1969 through Trojan Records. The ballad was written at a time Cliff was having difficulty in becoming a successful Musician in the UK, and it brought a lot of frustration within himself. The ballad was featured on his sophomore album “Jimmy Cliff” a.k.a. “Wonderful World, Beautiful People” and “The Harder They Come” soundtrack, and is one of Cliff’s biggest hits. “Many Rivers To Cross” was previously featured in the movie “Rush“, along with the TV shows “Daredevil“, “Wilfred“, and “Falling Skies“. The ballad was also covered by UB40, and Tessanne Chin during her time on “The Voice” in 2013.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Louisa Mark – Caught You In A Lie (1975)

In recognition of Women’s History Month, we take the time out to feature Women who have made great contributions to our music culture. While we celebrate the Women all year over here, we recognize some through our Oldies Sunday section. For today’s selection, we stop in London to check out the late Louisa “Markswoman” Mark and her track, “Caught You In A Lie“.

Produced by “Sir Coxsone” Dodd, “Caught You In A Lie” was released through Safari Records, and the Gussie label in 1975. The track was a cover of US Singer Robert Parker’s 1967 single, “I Caught You In A Lie“, and Louisa Mark owned it with beautiful vocals and delivery as she spoke about catching a cheating lover, and discovering what he was up to. The song was performed by a 15 year old Mark, who was a big winner at various talent shows, and was a result of  her first recording session which was given to her by Dodd. The song became an instant hit and was well loved by listeners in Europe and other parts of the world, and was considered the first Lovers Rock single.

Since the release of “Caught You In A Lie”, Louisa Mark followed up with a couple more hits, and released her only album “Breakout” in 1981 (“Caught You In A Lie” would be later added in a remastered version of the album). She enjoyed a career in the 80s that saw the release of some singles, but life happened, and she didn’t put out anymore music until 2004. Sadly she passed away in 2009, but she left her mark (no pun intended) on music with kicking off the official Lovers Rock movement.

Thank You Louisa Mark For This Classic!

.@TheAlkaline Handles Things Like A “Boss” On New Single

Dancehall Artist Alkaline may not drop music as often as some of his peers, but best believe the fanbase shows up when he drops something new. Still making moves and still owning a huge following, it may be time for a new project from him. While we wait, he lets go the new single, “Boss“.

Produced by Autobamb Records and Sart Out Records (R.I.P. Dane Sortie 🙏🏽), Alkaline lets you know that he only makes boss moves, and is calling all the shots. Don’t take him for a simple person, and it won’t go bad. Still throwing shots here and there, but Alkaline still holds his own. “Boss” is the 4th single released in recent weeks, and we look forward to see what’s next from him.
