OLDIES SUNDAY: Little Kirk – What’s Love Got To Do (1984)


In recognition of May being “Child’s Month“, Oldies Sunday will be highlighting a few child stars who made some noise in music. Today we go back to the 80’s with Recording Artist Little Kirk and his cover of the Tina Turner classic, “What’s Love Got To Do“! Produced by Winston Riley on the Stalag Riddim, this was released in 1984 and featured on the LP, “Original Stalag 17, 18, & 19“. Having gotten his start through the Sound systems in his early teens, Little Kirk could be found covering popular tracks with a dose of his distinct sound and delivery.

Since the release of “What’s Love Got To Do”, Little Kirk has went on to release numerous singles and albums, and became one of the main voices at the Patrick Roberts owned “Shocking Vibes” label along with his younger brother, Beenie Man. In recent years however, he has switched to releasing Gospel Music but still performs many of his previous singles when he’s on tour.

.@RealKvlar Tries To Find The “Formula” To Love In New Single!


Recording Artist Kvlar has been staying busy putting together some great music. While he gave us a favourite in 2018 with “It’s Yours”, his latest release “Formula” may just join it. Handling the production along with Salim Browne on Bass, Pau Dangla Valls and Oniel Dacres on Keyboards, Mark-Anthony Reid on Percussion, Shadeeka Daughma and Janoy Ellis on Guitars, and Jonathan Rankine on Drums, he directs the right sound to accompany the amazing vocals (with Ovasha Bartley providing backup) projected throughout this song as he tries to connect with someone who is in need of love.

Be on the look out for Kvlar as he will be performing at an event near you this Summer. Stay tuned to his Social Media for updates. In the meantime, check out the track below, and share with a friend! Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Ever had feelings for someone else, but you know you couldn’t shoot the shot because they’re involved with someone?

Produced by HighLife Music Entertainment, Rhiya shares her belief in having a soulmate and destiny placing them in the same space, but she can’t approach him just yet because he’s in a relationship.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Lil Vicious – Nika (1994)


In recognition of May being “Child’s Month“, Oldies Sunday will be highlighting a few child stars who made some noise in music. Today’s first selection comes from Brooklyn born Rapper/Dancehall Artist Lil Vicious with his 1994 hit, “Nika“! Produced by DJ Clark Kent and released through Epic Street/Sony Records, we find Vicious giving us bars about his new love interest, Nika, and rocking the crowd throughout the song. With lyrics about Marriage, dating, and even having kids, teenage Vicious was ahead of his time with his grown up bars then. He doesn’t understand why his parents love her though. “Nika” was featured on the Rapper’s debut album, “Destination Brooklyn“.

“Nika” was a hit for the Artist as it peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot Rap singles chart, and #69 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song also featured samples of US Music group The Isley Brothers’Between The Sheets“, Rapper Big Daddy Kane’sSomethin’ Funky“, and an interpolation of Dancehall Artist Beenie Man’sWorld Dance“. Since the release of “Nika”, Vicious kept rapping despite not gaining another hit, and even got mentioned on the late Notorious B.I.G.’s “You’re Nobody (‘Till Somebody Kills You)“.
