@LinkyFirst3: The Jamaican Soca Artist To Watch!


Carnival season is in full swing here in Jamaica, and the Socaphiles will be wukking up and wining all day and night. One particular song will be given multiple spins, but what many will not know, is that it was done by one of their own…

Words by ShannyDeLioness

Yes you heard me right, we have a full fledged Jamaican Soca Artist! While we’ve had Dancehall/Soca/Calypso collaborations over the years by the likes of Beenie Man,  Konshens, Spice, and of course you all know of the late Legend Byron Lee and his Dragonaires, and the timeless Fab 5 Band, this Artist has taken his talents and determination and became the first to make it to the International Soca Monarch finals! His name is…Linky First!

Born Jason Henriques, Linky First has been blowing up the airwaves in Trinidad & Tobago and the rest of the Caribbean with his hit single, “Rock & Come In” on the Ruffin produced “Liming Riddim” since its release last year. He has since followed up with “Control It”, “X6”, “Doctor”, and “Naked Pon The Road”.

Mixtape Rave With @Shanny_14


Lifestyle Blogger ShannyDeLioness is back for another week of “Mixtape Rave“! This week she serves you an array of Mixtapes she’s been feeling over the past 7 days. If you missed the previous installments, check them out here.

1. Ruppinz Volume 2 Part 1 – ZJ Liquid

ZJ Liquid is one of the undisputed Kings of Radio! If you know the Popcaan song that shares its name with this mix, you definitely have an idea of what you are in for once you press play. He fittingly kicks this Dancehall mix off with a song that probably best describes his status as a “Big LeagueDJ.

2. Soca Brainwash 2016 – DJ Private Ryan

DJ Private Ryan is a household name for a reason. Soca Brainwash was the perfect last lap mix for the “Greatest Show” on earth. It was the soundtrack of choice for a recent road trip and has been a go to mix for the past week!

NEW MUSIC: @Rihanna x @Drake – Work (@IAmPlateface Dub)


Rihanna had “NavyTwitter in a frenzy when she released her 8th studio album, “Anti“. With a first single featuring Drake titled “Work“, Acmatic’s own Plateface decided to add some touches to the Boi1da produced track. Here he gave it a more Dancehall feel to compliment Rihanna’s delivery. This version sounds like something that if Rihanna’s people are watching (crosses fingers), they could use in a Jamaican street dance themed music video. Loved the original? Then check out this new version below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
