.@Shaqstar6ixx Shares His Pain On “Drowning”.

Dancehall has always shed a light about the struggle, and the good times that people have experienced. Many practitioners of the genre have made songs that spoke about the everyday life, and what one can expect in them. For St. Thomas based Dancehall Artist Shaqstar, he uses it to speak about pain in “Drowning“.

With a video directed by Hot Spot Studios Cinematography, Shaqstar shares his pain and sorrow. Paired with his vices, Shaqstar shares that life isn’t easy, and he is tested everyday. Depression is real out there, and Shaqstar uses the music as a form of therapy, and many listeners will be able to relate to the lyrics. “Drowning” was produced by Blueface Records on the “Silence Riddim“. Shaqstar has been busy progressing thanks to release of his “Seaforth SonEP, and he looks to make his name bigger over the course of time. The topic of Mental Health continues to grow in Jamaica, and we hope there will be more safe spaces and platforms for those who are fighting battles mentally. Take it a day at a time.

Will The Wolf Holds On To “Hope” In New Video!

Trinidad’s Will The Wolf is a different type of artist. Having made a couple debuts this year, his music and visuals definitely stand out from the crowd. With his 3rd release, the VOISIC produced “Hope“, he gets into something that many of us can relate to.

With a video directed by Will himself while Thrillstory captures it all, we get a song that’s a tearjerker as it deals with lost relationships, missing that special someone, with the visuals showing us the depression that one goes through, and the hope some have that there will be a reunion. With the year seeing many breakups and fall outs, some of us are going through it, but trying to stay positive through it. Hang in there! Great song by Will The Wolf, and a very clean visual from him and the team!

This is Junior Byles - Fade Away (1976)

OLDIES SUNDAY: Junior Byles – Fade Away (1976)

Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Reggae artist Junior Byles. Titled “Fade Away” which was released in 1976 under Eagle Records, was produced by Joseph Hoo Kim and was featured on the soundtrack for the hit Jamaican film “Rockers“. Fade Away” speaks on the way people value material wealth over their own souls, corruption, the ills of society, and preaching that they will all fade away soon. “Fade Away” was hailed as Byles’ best work and became a big hit not only in Jamaica, but in the UK where it was largely successful and covered years later by the New Age Steppers group.

Since his heyday, not much has been heard of Junior Byles. He released many more singles and albums but over the years he suffered bouts of depression after recieving many tragics news. There were times he was witnessed living on the streets and making frequent visits to hospitals. His last big performance was in Jamaica in 2004 which recieved positive reviews and led to a short tour later that year.

Thank you Junior Byles!
