R&B Veteran Keith Sweat always had a thing for delivering that feel good grown folks music. From his debut decades ago, he has been the one to turn up the heat for the ladies. Recently, he released his 13th studio album, “Playing For Keeps“. While fans know what to expect from the R&B Crooner, his collaboration with Dancehall Artist Alkaline on “Fuego” was a pump on the brakes. The track, which also features Akon and RayFade, boasts some modern production and encourages you to bust a move throughout. Are there hints of Aidonia and Di Genius’ “Fi Di Jockey” and Donovan Germaine and Dave Kelly’s “Dickie” Riddims I hear? Alkaline held his own on this track and this a huge look for not only the Dancehall Artist, but for the genre on a whole. Big up the Detta Boss. Keith Sweat’s new album is out now.

We took a week off, but today we’re back with another post in our “Quick Throwback” series. Today we go back to the year 2011 with Alkaline’s “Mi Love Woman“! Borrowing Seanizzle’s “Split Personality Riddim“, the young Alka (who was attending Ardenne High School at the time) expressed his love for the women, and wishes to “touch all the women in the world“. He also shot a video and featured some of his high school peers.
Since the release of “Mi Love Woman”, Alkaline went on to become one of Jamaica’s most controversial Deejays with a cult-like following similar to currently incarcerated Artist, Vybz Kartel. He has enjoyed his fair share of hit songs as well, and has managed to see success despite taking time off, or being involved in conflict. Stay tuned for another quick throwback!

Weeks ago, Hip Hop Artist A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie posted a photo on Instagram which featured the Vendetta Boss, Alkaline. In the caption, Boogie asked for 50,000 likes as permission to collaborate with the Dancehall Artist. A couple hundred thousand likes (and a deleted post) later, the collab came in the form of the single, “Nonchalant“! Speaking on the lifestyles they live, they warn the ladies that they’re not Romeos so don’t expect any exclusivity. Blending both of their signature sounds, you’ll find yourself rocking to this collaboration, and wanting to hear more from them. Maybe they have more in store, would be interesting if they made an EP together as well. What do you think? Check out the track below, and follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
