With Valentine’s Day only a few hours away, many are looking forward to a few hours with that special someone. What about those who want to be sneaky and deceitful? Anna Mariah’s new video will make you think twice as she does not play. With her crew ready for anything, Anna Mariah drops “Don’t Play With My Heart“! Directed by LEB Studios, we see the story of a couple who are as loving as they can be, but one partner wasn’t being loyal throughout, and it ends where he faces the consequences of his actions in a very big way. Suitors beware, Anna is not here for the games, so you better come correct or leave her alone. Anna Mariah has been grinding in the past couple years, and we expect to see more of her in 2018. Watch the video below!
In our “2018 Predictions” post, we predicted that there will be more Women making their way onto the Caribbean Music scene. In an Industry that hasn’t always been kind to the Female Artist, we have enjoyed the works from many over the years, but we have also asked for some who can step outside the box and give us music that’ll blow us away! The following Artists have been slowly making their name out there for some time, and aim to be mentioned along with their established peers.

We mentioned the songbird in our 15 Artists to look out for feature last year, and she has been making steady progress since her debut single, “So Shy“. This year has already seen her start off in a good way with “Doe Try Me“, with promises to deliver even more music. She steals the scene with her voice, and you need her in your playlists.
Jane has been on the scene for a while, but made a lot of noise in 2017 thanks to her single, “Too Late“. A member of Zinc Fence Records, she made her debut in 2014 with “Babylon” and has been on the radar of many ever since. Last year saw her music being featured in the Amazon Video series, “SYN”, and this year may be the year she releases a full length project! It’s not too late to get familiar with her.
3. Rhiya Luna
Formerly Shie Musik, she was featured in our 15 Artists to know post as well as she was coming back off of a hiatus. She has lent her voice to various Dancehall singles, and with the new moniker she aims to touch on more genres. With singles like “It Up“, “Bandwagon Selecta“, “Sweetest Love” and her latest “Again“, let her music put some light in your life!
International DJ Steve Aoki’s creative process is on god level. With his “Kolony” project, he has been reaching out to other creatives who can help to chef up a masterpiece. Today, he joins DJ/Production Collective Bad Royale and Trini Recording Artist Jimmy October on “No Time“. In the video you can see Aoki whipping it like mad Chemist while Jimmy plays the role of Kronos (the Greek god of time), and Bad Royale all black cloaked out ready to perform a ritual. Stay off that foo foo, keep it zen. Big up Steve Aoki, Bad Royale, Jimmy October and the team at Overdose Music Group. Check out the video below!
If you were a reader of our “15 Artists To Watch Out For In Summer 2017” post, you would’ve come across an Artist by the name of Shie. Though she took a break from music, she’s back on the scene and has since released a couple songs. To close off 2017 however, she has gone through a name change, and will be now known as “Rhiya Luna“. Her first offering with the new name is titled, “Sweetest Love“! Produced by VanClive of Street Fame Records, she took a break from the Dancehall vibes as she lets us know that she needs love, and can offer the best kind in return. It is a different sound coming from her, and there’s no telling what’s next from her and she likes to be unpredictable. Something for the lovers out there, and an addition to the “Love” playlists for this holiday season, and next year. How deep is your love for me? Check out the track below!
There comes a time in a man’s life where he wants to have one woman he can settle down with. A woman who can complete him and make him drop all the others for. Recording Artist Khxos believes he found the one he can “drop all his hoes for” on the new single, “Queen Ting“. Produced by Sean Alaric, Khxos speaks on his Queen being the one he can have fun with without the sex, being the one to make his think on life and the decisions he has made, the one to build him up and make him a better man. If you have found a good woman, do what you must to ensure she’s around for the long haul. If that time isn’t now, maybe one day it’ll happen. Pair this with his debut album, “Dopamine” for extra listening. Check out the track below!
Bringing in some vibes today are Colombian Recording Artist Andy Rivera, and Panamanian Recording Artist Joey Montana! Today they spread some love in the form of their latest music video, “Enamorarte (Fall In Love)“. Directed by Dayme y El High, the Artists sing about falling in love and valuing the person they love, while we see two persons making plans for a get together throughout the day. Be sure to watch to the end for a surprise. Great visuals, and a song that you can vibe to. Off the upcoming “Sustancia EP” from Dayme y El High & Andy Rivera, get some español in your life and check out the video below!
