Buenos días! ¿Cómo estás? Hope you all are ready for new music! While we featured something new from the “Young Banton” Leno Banton yesterday, we have a follow up! Teaming up with Reggaeton Artist Junior D, and Latino DJ Nico P for “Ra Ra Ra“, it’s a party! Produced by New Generation Ent., the acts kick off an experience filled with different cultures, languages, and genres. Whether you want to fling a shoulder to this, two step, or wave a flag or few, just remember to roll the RRRRR! Nice to see Leno spreading his sound to other areas, something to bounce to for the holiday parties. Have a listen below!
Simma simma, who got the keys to the…wrong song, but there’s a Bimma involved in today’s new entry! REM Emperor Leno Banton has been having a great year thanks to his appearances at various events, and putting out dope music. Teaming up with the young Lion, Producer/Recording Artist iotosh (who has been making moves this year as well), they release “Simma“! Produced by krs., the Artists look back at their love interests as they reflect on having great moments, to losing that love to other men and materialistic ambitions. Listeners will relate to this as many relationships tend to end this way. From fluffing that pillow for that special person, to seeing them change into a whole different individual who lowered their standards. While Leno gave his signature groove on this, iotosh went in! Providing the Artwork is the lovely Monique Kidd a.k.a. Kidding Art! Some New Wave music fi yuh ears! Have a listen below.
Dropping new music is emerging Recording Artist, Riki Simmonds! Bringing a new flavour to the scene, she’s definitely an Artist to watch out for. Today she makes “waves” with “Waterfalls“! Produced by Troy Baker of Geejam Records, Riki speaks about someone who has captured her attention, and makes her go from having her head in the clouds, to coming down like a Waterfall! It’s like that sometimes (lol). Blending a mix of Dancehall, Soul, R&B, and Afrobeat with her unique lyrics, we believe she will be making a lot more noise in 2018! Has anyone ever made you feel like how Riki is feeling in this song? Let us know! 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!
You’ve seen him mix it up at events, and you’ve heard him play on one of the top Radio stations in Jamaica (Zip 103 FM), it’s all about ZJ West!

Recently we got a chance to interview him and we spoke about his work, Yung Gunnerz, being a Dad, and much more. Without further ado, GET TO KNOW the Zipjock named West below!
