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)“.

Today’s Sunday, and that means it’s another “Oldies Sunday“! for today’s selection, we go back to the year 1994 and check out Andru Donalds’Mishale“! Produced by Eric Foster White, this was released through Metro Blue Records (a subsidiary of Capitol Records), and song finds Andru expressing how much he misses this woman despite breaking her heart, and the pain he feels for being separated from her. With a unique sound, this Reggae track that was made for International airplay. The song was featured on Andru Donalds’ self titled debut album which was released in 1994.

(Editor’s note: I remember when the video for this premiered on Jamaica’s “Entertainment Report”, and became a fixture on local TV for a while.)

“Mishale” became a hit for Donalds as it received a great amount of radio play in Jamaica, and made it to #38 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The single was also remixed by Ben Chapman, Eric Kupper and Richie Jones, and Luv Dup. Since “Mishale”, Donalds has went on to release 5 more albums including a “Best of” in 2006, found a couple more hits, got his music featured in two Films (Good Will Hunting and Barefoot), and became a lead Singer in the German musical project, Enigma. He is currently touring and spreading the music all over the world, and you can check for his next performance on his website.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Snow Ball Brown – Chiquitita (1994)


As we close the month of July, we had to throw in a classic. Today our Oldies Sunday selection comes from Recording Artist Clive Brown a.k.a. “Snow Ball Brown“. What is considered one of the greatest Festival Song Contest entries, we present to you “Chiquitita“! Produced by Sherman Clachar, this was released through Arabic Records in 1994, and became an entry in the 1994 Festival Song Contest. Though not a winning entry, it quickly became a hit outside of the contest. It music video was one to look forward to in the evenings on JBC TV before the News. With the infectious chorus, you couldn’t help but imitate Snow Ball’s delivery of “Oooh Chiquititaaaa…“. Not much was heard of Snow Ball Brown since his hit (except that he entered a few more times with no success, and fell on hard times), but “Chiquitita” continues to pop up during Jamaica’s Emancipation/Independence Day celebrations.
