In our “2018 Predictions” post, we predicted that there will be more Women making their way onto the Caribbean Music scene. In an Industry that hasn’t always been kind to the Female Artist, we have enjoyed the works from many over the years, but we have also asked for some who can step outside the box and give us music that’ll blow us away! The following Artists have been slowly making their name out there for some time, and aim to be mentioned along with their established peers.

We mentioned the songbird in our 15 Artists to look out for feature last year, and she has been making steady progress since her debut single, “So Shy“. This year has already seen her start off in a good way with “Doe Try Me“, with promises to deliver even more music. She steals the scene with her voice, and you need her in your playlists.
Jane has been on the scene for a while, but made a lot of noise in 2017 thanks to her single, “Too Late“. A member of Zinc Fence Records, she made her debut in 2014 with “Babylon” and has been on the radar of many ever since. Last year saw her music being featured in the Amazon Video series, “SYN”, and this year may be the year she releases a full length project! It’s not too late to get familiar with her.
3. Rhiya Luna
Formerly Shie Musik, she was featured in our 15 Artists to know post as well as she was coming back off of a hiatus. She has lent her voice to various Dancehall singles, and with the new moniker she aims to touch on more genres. With singles like “It Up“, “Bandwagon Selecta“, “Sweetest Love” and her latest “Again“, let her music put some light in your life!
It’s Friday, and it’s that time to roll up some green, and blaze it to some good tunes! DJ Dar wants to assist with the musical selections today with the release of his latest Mixtape, “Roots & Dub Vol. 2“! Giving listeners a dose of audio for that meditation and medication session, Dar pays tribute to US Virgin Islands Reggae Artist, Akae Beka. Throughout the hour long mix he also spins tunes from Jahdan Blakkamoore, Pressure Busspipe, and Lutan Fyah. For those who need a proper hit of consciousness while steaming the herbs, you can’t go wrong with “Roots & Dub”! Be sure to look out for the DJ as he readies a weekly series where he spins nothing but the best tunes, all while throwing in some of his work as the Artist known as “Da Supreme“.

Recording Artist Rhiya Luna (formerly Shie Musik), joins the list of Artists who start off the new year with music! Teaming up with Nuh Response Production, she releases the uptempo “Again“! Featuring production from Kruze of NRP, Rhiya handles a Dance/Pop fusion beat as she delivers lyrics like “Love me harder, like yuh nah see me again…“. For those who like to have some fun, and for those who’ll party the night away and make moments last, this is for you! The production was a little off in some parts, but Rhiya has managed to handle it in her own way. The single is currently available on Apple Music, and Rhiya promises to drop more music in the coming weeks as a part of her comeback campaign. Make it last forever. Check out the track below.
