Recording Artist Koffee has a lot to be thankful for. With 2018 seeing her being the talk of the town with her smash hit “Toast” (racking up 16 million views on Youtube currently), signing to Columbia Records, touring the world and touching many with her music, her star has yet to shine its brightest. 2019 so far has seen Koffee making more moves, and this next move that we’ll share might see her standing out even more.
Moviegoers worldwide are anticipating the theatrical release of the Horror flick, “Us“. Directed by Comedian/Director Jordan Peele and starring Trinbagonian-American Actor Winston Duke and Kenyan-Mexican Actress Lupita Nyong’o, it has been the talk of Social Media as Peele’s previous film, “Get Out” was a huge success. Yesterday (March 11) at US based Conference and Festival South By Southwest (SXSW), moviegoers were treated to an early screening of the film, and fans of Reggae music were delighted to hear Koffee’s hit single as it has been included in a scene of the film. Produced by Izy Beats and Walshy Fire, the song finds Koffee giving thanks for her many blessings, and encouraging listeners to show gratitude. We featured it as one of our 2018 favourites, and we’ve seen it cross many seas and nations since its release, even scoring a “Song Of The Year” award at the recently held Jamaica Reggae Industry Awards (JaRIA). Koffee is currently gearing up to release her debut EP, “Rapture” on March 14 which also features “Raggamuffin” and “Throne“.
“Us” hits Theatres on March 22, but you can view the trailer below. Check out our post on Koffee’s “Toast” here, and share. Be sure to show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
After finding his footing and creating music that have been mainstays in the playlists of many in recent years, Recording Artist Khxos continues his mission with the release of his latest EP, “Melanin“. Following up to his 2018 debut album “Dopamine“, Khxos doesn’t change much in the formula, but ensures that there’s an anthem or fave for everyone. Featuring 6 tracks, Khxos hopes this project will make an even greater impact on the scene as each track promotes and celebrates that “melanin love“. With contributions from Blvk H3ro, Konshens, Zagga, Kim Gebriel, Royal Blu, and Dehshh, this EP promises high replay value. Check out the EP below, and share with a friend.

Recording Artist DeeWunn had many listeners moving when he dropped “Mek It Bunx Up” a few years ago, but soon he’ll make them “Back It Up, Drop It“. The upcoming single, which features Brazilian Producer Leo Justi (of Heavy Baile) and released through Waxploitation Records, has recently found its way in Commercials before being available online. Thanks to Electronics giant Samsung, the single was featured in a 30 second promotional spot for the recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy S10 Smartphone series. The BassHall single provided the soundtrack as the company celebrated 10 years of “Pioneering Mobile Firsts“, and their latest creation.
DeeWunn & Leo Justi’s “Back It Up, Drop It” will be available on all Digital Streaming Providers on March 22. Check out the video below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
“GodFather, man a OG…“
Earlier this year, the Quartet of “Godfather of Grime” Wiley, Dancehall Icon Sean Paul, UK Bad Gyal Stefflon Don, and “The Black James Bond” Idris Elba released their collaborative single titled, “Boasty“. As they joined forces to give us a bassy track to keep us feeling swaggy, it was only right they followed up with a music video. Directed by Henry Scholfield, we get a dope performance of the track by the four Artists (except Wiley part was replaced by Child Actor, Brooklyn Appiah) in four different locations (they don’t meet up in the end though). While the track is steadily gaining steam, the video is a nice touch and will get you in the mood to be flashy. Check out the video below, and share with a friend.
