.@ShenYeng & @BujuBanton Featured On @KanyeWest’s “DONDA” Album!


Just a few hours ago, International Recording Artist/Producer/Entrepreneur Kanye West released his tenth studio album, “DONDA“. It was met with multiple delays, but this year saw it being previewed at a few events. During those events, many of the album’s guest features showed up as a part of the rollout. Today, we highlight two of the album’s features, Dancehall Artist Shenseea, and Reggae/Dancehall Icon Buju Banton.

Kanye West’s “DONDA” album is packed with 26 tracks, with a mix of many genres and sounds. Shenseea represents Dancehall on the album via the track, “Ok ok Pt. 2” and “Pure Souls“, while Buju Banton steps in for Reggae on the track, “Believe What I Say“. Shenseea steps in “Ok Ok Pt. 2” with a verse along with Rapper Fivio Foreign and she sings on “Pure Souls”, while Buju shares a few bars along with some words of wisdom over a Lauryn Hill sampled track. Kanye West is no stranger to having Dancehall/Reggae sounds and Artists on his albums as Agent Sasco, Beenie Man, and Capleton appeared on his “Yeezus” album in 2013. Yeezy SZN is here, and we know many listeners will be making the most out of the album today.

Vybz Kartel & @BujuBanton Kick Off Their Summer With New Albums!


With the Saharan Dust kicking up the heat all over the world, it’s nothing when it comes to the new releases from Buju Banton and Vybz Kartel that are gonna be scorchers this summer! Once again proving that Prison can’t hold him down, Vybz Kartel emerges with the highly anticipated album, “Of Dons & Divas“, followed by  Buju Banton with his also highly anticipated 11th studio album (12 if you count the rerelease album, “Quick”, and minus the compilations), “Upside Down 2020“.

Loaded with 18 tracks, “Of Dons & Divas” is Vybz Kartel’s 2nd album release this year following the hugely popular, “To: Tanesha“. With features from Lisa Hyper, Teejay, Tommy Lee Sparta, Skillibeng, Lisa Mercedez, Sikka Rhymes, and many more, fans of the “World Boss” can rejoice for new music that will hold them over till more singles drop. While Vybz Kartel maintains a presence through Instagram, only one can wonder how he manages to still release music from Prison after all these years away from physically being in the streets.

With his release from a nearly 10 year bid in 2018, Buju Banton got the fans going with new music. With “Upside Down 2020”, he looks to step back to the forefront of the music culture where he reigned supreme. With 20 tracks onboard, and features from Stefflon Don, John Legend, Pharrell, and Stephen Marley, Buju is in top form, and looks to reintroduce himself to the world in 2020 and beyond. The album packs a flavour for everyone’s tastes, and promises to be a repeater for a long time to come.

With folks calling these albums “Grammy worthy“, we’ll just have to wait and see what the nominations say come later this year. For now, check out the albums below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

.@BujuBanton & @JohnLegend Reunite And Reflect On “Memories”


Since his release from prison in 2018, Jamaican Icon Buju Banton has been on a run. With performances and new music all 2019 and early 2020, Buju has been back like he never left. Today, he reunites with another musical icon, John Legend on “Memories“. It’s been 12 years since their collab, “Can’t Be My Lover“, and now their pairing is just as good as they reflect on past lovers who they still very much have feelings for. With Buju, Lenky Marsden, and Donovan Germain handling production, it’s a song that’s very relatable, and a showcase of two friends creating some great music.

“Memories” is featured on Buju’s upcoming album, “Upside Down“, which will see a release later this year through Gargamel Music/Roc Nation. Good to hear new Buju, and a reunion with John Legend.
