It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Manchester’s own DJ Chungy. The 2nd place winner of the 2009 Heineken Green Synergy Competition and 1st place winner of the 2012 King Of Spin series, he has been rocking many events across Jamaica, and was even affiliated with the Skunk Nation Car Club.He gets back on the grind today as he returns with “The Takeover” Mixtape!
With almost an hour worth of hits, DJ Chungy mixes in the old with the new from some of your favourites. Whether you’re working or chilling, let this mix get you into some good vibes! As Christmas Day fast approaches, you’ll want to get the party started, so give Chungy a call today, and fix tings!
Before creating history again with the 2nd staging of his “Unruly Fest” In St. Thomas, Jamaica, Popcaan makes his long-awaited debut project from OVO Sound available with the release of his “Vanquish” Mixtape! Featuring 10 tracks, Poppy gets into various topics from love, to living the “Unruly” life, providing upliftment, and many more. Closing out the year and decade, Popcaan has truly shown what it takes to be a success. We look forward to more from him, and what’s next as a member of OVO Sound.
Upcoming Trini Recording Artist FVRFVN is closing off his 2019 with new music! Having teamed up with Sarkastik Ambassador a couple months ago, he’s now handling things on his own here with the track, “Do My Thing“! With the title of the track, he definitely could back it up as he has handled production on this one. With lyrics like a heatwave over some booming beats, FVRFVN sparked a few flames here, and is ensuring listeners that he has a lot of clips loaded to go.
With the Island being synonymous with Soca Music, it’s interesting to see Dancehall and Hip Hop Artists pop up in Trinidad & Tobago in recent years. With the playing field widening even more, there is now more room for Artists to be as creative as ever. FVRFVN is just one of many who have taken on the challenge. Keep your eyes peeled for more developments from the young Artist.
Recording Artist Rhiya Luna has been staying consistent this year. With various music releases throughout 2019, she found herself performing at various events, and even opening for Reggae Artist Etana this past summer. Closing off her year however, she drops the video for the single, “Really Like You“!
Directed by CEO Productions, Rhiya Luna finds herself being the “third wheel” throughout as her friend spends time with her boyfriend. While they all have a lil fun throughout, Rhiya pictures herself having someone of her own to do fun stuff with as well. While it can be a bummer at times, things take a turn in the end, but you’d have to watch to see what happens. Hopefully this story continues in a future video.
Continuing with the Holiday vibes, we head on over to the Island of Guyana for “Oldies Sunday“. Today we tap into Singer Rita Forrester/Queen Rita’s popular Christmas song, “Christmas Time Is Here“! Backed by Rudy & The Roosters Band, Rita acknowledges that Christmas has arrived with all the festivities involved, but it doesn’t mean much to her as she misses someone special around that time. She also wishes him well wherever he is, and lets him know that he’s very much on her mind.
While family and friends play a great part in the holiday season, there are many who are facing the loss of key members in their life. While some things will never be the same, we urge you to accommodate family and friends this Christmas. It may just shine a lil light in their hearts, and put a positive spin on things.
