Amidst all the madness in the US this week, R&B/Pop Artist Chris Brown released a new single. Titled “Questions” (Get It Here), this was produced by A1 and Prince Chrishan and is a part of the Singer’s 40 track “Heartbreak On A Full Moon” Album which will be released later this year. For this track, Chris has drawn inspiration from the Caribbean in not only the Production, but in the lyrics. More notably, the song samples Soca Artist Kevin Lyttle’s 2003 smash hit, “Turn Me On” (Get It Here)! Hailing from Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Kevin Lyttle garnered International stardom with the lead single off his self-titled Debut Album. The song, which was produced by RedOne and Nely on one version, and Adrian Bailey on another which featured Dancehall Artist Spragga Benz, was also a top 10 hit in 15 different countries, saw Gold and Platinum certifications worldwide, covered/remixed numerous times, and was even re-recorded in 2008 for his second Album featuring Soca Artist Alison Hinds.

Titled “Bam Bam” and produced by the late Winston Riley for Techniques Records on the “Stalag Riddim” in 1982, Nancy speaks about being an ambitious woman, her lyrical prowess that will “nice up” Jamaica, growing up in Princeton 6, and being a very unique person along her infectious chorus “What a Bam Bam…“. “Bam Bam” was a single on Sister Nancy’s debut album, “One,Two” which was released in 1982 by Techniques Records.
