Is it your birthday today? Happy Birthday! We hope you have a great year and a lot of success comes your way! Recording Artists High On Fi and JKinggz on the other hand have a treat for the ladies who have their special day today in the form of a new single. Titled “Birthday“, this was produced by AlexayBeats and brings the Afrobeat and Hip Hop vibe to your party! In the video, directed by EAD, the Artists along with some beauties throw a party in a Hotel room filled with music, good vibes, party favors, and of course a few cakes. No matter where you are in the world, “Birthday” is a great addition to the playlist for your party, or that “Birthday sex” session (wink wink). With High On Fi and JKinggz hailing from Nigeria and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines respectively, they bring their Island and African sounds along with their Hip Hop influences to every track they make. Based in New York, they have previously worked on the singles “Dat Guy”, and “Used To”. Go shorty, it’s your Birthday! Check out the new single below!

It’s a special night for the “Doctor” Beenie Man as he celebrates his 42nd birthday and Onstage ensured it was an even better event. Starting off with a toast, tributes and a “Happy Birthday” song, Beenie’s day was well celebrated. Here he spoke about some great moments in his life and career, and later went on to perform some of his hits. An entertaining set by the Birthday Boy, I wish him nothing but long life and more success. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Yesterday, the good folks at Irie FM paid tribute to a Hero worldwide, Marcus Mosiah Garvey. Featuring Interviews, discussions and musical tributes, it was a great day to honour a great man before his birthday (which is today). Make some space for this event as it was a pretty lengthy one. If the boss complains, tell him it’s for a great cause. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Today’s new music comes from Pop artists Will.I.Am and Cody Wise with a little twist. Titled “Birthday” and produced by Will.I.Am and Damien LeRoy, this features samples from Jamaica’s own Aidonia (Fi Di Jockey) and Bounty Killa. The song is basically a feel good song that promotes living life to the fullest all the time and celebrating it like it’s your birthday. Sounds like a hit to me here and it’s very interesting to hear Dancehall being sampled in this. Check out the song below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
