Taking a page out of Shaggy’s book is Dancehall artist Busy Signal. Starting his own foundation, he aims to help the people of St. Ann, his birth parish. Recently he spoke with Onstage TV’s Jason Williams about it and more. Here he spoke on his “Helping Hands” foundation and the progress so far, setting up a benefit concert, aiming to expand it to other parishes, encouraging more people to follow in his footsteps and contribute, and working on new music. A noble effort from Busy Signal, I do hope it gets the well needed support to help communities for a very long time. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Busy Signal is all about the social media “linkage” in his latest tune. Titled “Whatsapp“, this borrows the instrumental from Byron Lee & The Dragonaires’ “Tiney Winey” and Busy Signal speaks on his escapades with the ladies through the various social networks that he uses. A hot single here as I heard it numerous times before its release. A perfect song to add to your Dancehall and Soca playlists. R.I.P. Byron Lee.

“Personally” is a single created by the Nigerian duo P-Squared. Since its release it has been a hit on Youtube and many other avenues. It has been so much of a hit that Jamaican acts have gravitated to the Instrumental and today Busy Signal is one of those acts to tackle it. Titled “Professionally“, Busy speaks on being the ladies man and the things he does with them professionally. He also drops a line about selling platinum records and aiming for a Grammy. Jamaicans are not new at having their own take on a popular song but Busy Signal had to make sure he did it justice. Wine fi me baby.

Today’s new music comes from the Busy Signal and RC. Titled “Dreams Of Brighter Days” and produced by Silly Walks Discotheque on the “Brighter Days” riddim, we hear the duo taking the Reggae approach dropping conscious lyrics, promoting positive vibes, meditation and dreaming of brighter days. Great effort from the two, it has a Bob Marley feel to it as well. Busy hasn’t slacked off once this year, the hits keep coming. Get it on iTunes on November 29!
