.@FriendsOnlyOfcl Links Musical Minds In The Visual For “Never Be The Same”!


FRIENDS ONLY is an LA based creative company founded by Natalie Prospere, and is partners with Mass Appeal Records, the label behind releases from Run The Jewels, Dave East, and its co-founder, Nas. Recently, the company announced a new product called, “Friends Only, Jamaica“. “Friends Only, Jamaica” is on a mission to bridge the gap between local talent in Jamaica, and visiting artists and producers from the U.S. As a part of the mission, a “Friends Only, Jamaica” compilation has been made, with the first single, “Never Be The Same” featuring Kabaka Pyramid, Medisun, Hector “Roots” Lewis, Buddy, and EarthGang released a few days ago. Today, we get to see the official Music Video.

Directed by Nickii Kane and shot in Ocho Rios, we’re given a BTS look at how the track was put together. The video finds the Artists writing and recording their parts over the Dre Day production, and we see some unity and good vibes throughout. Producers Universvl ZincFence and J.L.L., Recording Artist Lucky Daye, and Reggae Artist Chronixx make appearances in the visual, and just by watching we know the recording sessions were a lot of fun. We look forward to the full “Friends Only, Jamaica” compilation when it hits the streets and streams in 2022.

Hector "Roots" Lewis - "Ups And Downs" on 13thStreetPromotions.com #Jamaica #Chronixx #Reggae #RootsLewis

.@RootsLewis Is Saving Lives With @JLLProd Produced Single, “Ups And Downs”


A few years ago we did a weekly segment in honour of “Women’s History Month“, and one of those Women we honoured was the late Singer, Barbara Jones. She blessed the scene with her lovely voice, gave us beautiful music to remember, and left a solid legacy. Carrying on her legacy and carving his own lane, is her son Hector “Roots” Lewis Jr. He is a Musician, a frequent collaborator with many of your favourite Artists including Chronixx, and is now fully stepping out as the first Artist signed to Chronixx’s Soul Circle Music label. He puts his best foot forward with his much anticipated single, “Ups And Downs“.

Teaming up with acclaimed Producer J.L.L., Hector “Roots” Lewis gives listeners healing, upliftment, and all around good vibes with “Ups And Downs”. He encourages listeners to never give up when there is failure in their life as “you can never rise if you never yet fall down“, holds his ground as he knows he’s built for the challenges that life has in store for him, and reminds us to always have Jah in everything you do. “Roots” Lewis steps out strong with “Ups And Downs”, and we’re confident that his new journey will be very fruitful.

After previewing some message music earlier this year, Producer Salaam Remi continues to do it for the culture as he finally dropped his powerful new album, “Black On Purpose“. Featuring collaborations with numerous black voices in music, he tapped into Jamaica and enlisted Super Cat, Stephen Marley, Chronixx, and Spragga Benz!

Having featured Super Cat and Stephen Marley months prior with the tracks “Push Time” and “Is It Because I’m Black“, Salaam Remi sought those who could help to push great messages in the music as the “Black Lives Matter” movement strengthened this year as racial tension in various parts of the world are on the rise. Chronixx can be found on “Afrikan Children” with Black Thought, and Stephen Marley appears for a 2nd time on the album with the track “Black Progress” which features Spragga Benz. “Black On Purpose” follows up his early 2020 release of “Do It For The Culture 2” which features Red Rat, Stephen Marley, Buccaneer, Majah Hype, Wayne Wonder, Spragga Benz, Ghost, and many others.
