Shav-A Pays Tribute To The Heroes On “Redemption Song”


The world is filled with heroes. While some are widely celebrated, and some have remained anonymous, they’ve all risked their lives in efforts to save many, or make a significant change in society. Paying tribute to her personal heroes, Recording Artist Shav-A delivers her rendition of “Redemption Song“. Borrowing the late Bob Marley’s 1980 classic, Shav-A sought the assistance of Musician Ed George on the Piano over the original’s Guitar performance, and gives us her 2019 version. While the original was inspired by elements of National Hero Marcus Garvey’s 1937 “The Work That Has Been Done” speech, Shav-A’s version pays tribute to Marcus Garvey, and fellow National Heroes Paul Bogle and Nanny of the Maroons.

Shav-A, who is the daughter of Reggae Artist Admiral Tibet, started her 2019 strong with the remix of her 2018 single “I Need Your Love” which featured French Recording Artist Orti. She is currently gearing up for a string of live performances to take place in the coming weeks, and will be making updates via her Instagram page at @ShavAMusic. She is currently promoting the singles, “Father” and “Island Girl“.

Producer @JLLProd Builds “Vibes With Bob” On New Project!


Nothing like a classic record isn’t it? Sometimes they don’t translate well with the new generation, and at times have to be tweaked a lil to get them to appreciate it. While this isn’t the case with today’s post, Jamaican Producer J.L.L. reimagines some of his favourite Bob Marley tunes with his latest remix project, “Vibes With Bob“. A Producer who we’ve included in our “Producers To Watch” feature and has made a name for himself through working with the likes of Chronixx, Smino, Royal Blu, Masego, Kranium, The Therapist, and Jane Macgizmo, this is a project to slowly enjoy like the sunset at your favourite location. With assistance from iotosh and Martel Howard, “Vibes With Bob” was 4 years in the making, and should have you ready to hear more. Check out the project below, and share with a friend!

.@Maroon5’s Cover Of @BobMarley’s “Three Little Birds” Featured In New @Hyundai Commercial!


Don’t worry about a thing. Recently, Automotive brand Hyundai announced their sponsorship of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and a campaign followed shortly. Recruiting US Band Maroon 5, they released a Commercial that had them covering one of the legendary Reggae Artist Bob Marley’s biggest hits, “Three Little Birds“. The song was released in 1977 as track 4 on Bob Marley & The Wailers’Exodus” album, and in 1980 as a single. This is the second time the song has been used in a campaign for Hyundai as it was performed by Stephen Marley and Jason Bentley in 2013. The song has enjoyed numerous covers over the years, and features in various films, ads, and soundtracks for sports teams.

Enjoy the World Cup, every little thing’s gonna be alright! Check out the Commercial and track below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Bob Marley started out in Trench Town, and became a larger than life Icon while Bunny Rugs made his mark as a Solo Artist, and Lead Vocalist for one of Reggae’s most successful Bands, Third World. While many pay respects to them today, we’d like to look back at a few songs that further immortalized them through samples. Samples will come from Bob Marley’s solo singles, or with The Wailers, and from Third World Band during Rugs’ time. Enjoy!
