We took a week off, but today we’re back with another post in our “Quick Throwback” series. Today we go back to the year 2011 with Alkaline’s “Mi Love Woman“! Borrowing Seanizzle’s “Split Personality Riddim“, the young Alka (who was attending Ardenne High School at the time) expressed his love for the women, and wishes to “touch all the women in the world“. He also shot a video and featured some of his high school peers.
Since the release of “Mi Love Woman”, Alkaline went on to become one of Jamaica’s most controversial Deejays with a cult-like following similar to currently incarcerated Artist, Vybz Kartel. He has enjoyed his fair share of hit songs as well, and has managed to see success despite taking time off, or being involved in conflict. Stay tuned for another quick throwback!

While we’re a lil late on this one (things fly below our radar at times), we’re always on time with the knowledge. Top Dawg Entertainment Recording Artist SiR released his debut album “November” earlier this year. Since its release, the Artist has been on the radar of many, and has been sharing the stage with the likes of Miguel, and his fellow TDE brethren on tour. Recently, he released the visual for his D.K. The Punisher produced single “D’Evils“, and a familiar sound started it off. While the video was shot in Jamaica by Karena Evans, the sample on the track comes from the late Dancehall Artist, Billy Boyo. A former child star, his popular track “One Spliff A Day” can be heard in the beginning, and throughout the song. The track was released in 1981 and produced by Henry “Junjo” Lawes. The track was also sampled on Jamaican Rapper Baker Steez’s “Ba Bye”, and Wiz Khalifa’s 2011 track of the same name.
Billy Boyo, who started his career in the early 80’s, has been considered one of Dancehall’s earliest child stars. While he released two albums, he was known more for his live performances than recordings. His “One Spliff A Day” track was recorded when he was only 10 years old and featured some rather mature lyrics from him. It still remains his most known track. The Artist passed away in the year 2000 due to a Brain Tumor. Check out other Jamaican Artists who started out as child stars here.
