.@Ishawna & @EdSheeran Get To “Brace It” On Official Collaboration!


This one has been in talks for quite some time. Ever since Dancehall Artist Ishawna hijacked Recording Artist Ed Sheeran’sShape Of You” for her “Equal Rights” single in 2017, we were on the lookout for a co-sign and possible collaboration between the two. It took a while, but Ed Sheeran acknowledged Ishawna’s track during a Radio Interview, and shared that he reached out to the Dancehall Artist. After all that time, we finally get a collaboration, and it’s called, “Brace It“!

Produced by Skatta Burrell, Ishawna, and Don Corleon/Don Corleonie, “Brace It” mixes Pop and Dancehall from two different Artists from two very different worlds. It’s like the Jamaican girl bringing her white boyfriend to the Island to get familiar with the music, but in song form. Ed Sheeran is encouraged by Ishawna to “wine pon mi good up“, and the two have fun on the track. Pretty interesting to hear Ed speak a lil Patois (“I nah go diss yuh never”), but overall we expect this track to make its rounds.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Vybz Kartel X @Wayne_Marshall – New Millennium (2002)


It’s the first Oldies Sunday post for 2022! Happy New Year to all the regulars tuning in. For our first post, we go back to the early 2000s to check out a classic. Today’s selection comes from the “World BossVybz Kartel, and his track, “New Millennium“.

Produced by Donovan “Vendetta” Bennett a.k.a. Don Corleonie and Shiah Coore on the “Mad Ants Riddim“, this was released through Don Corleon Records in 2002. Featuring Dancehall Artist Wayne Marshall, Vybz Kartel displayed superb delivery and lyricism on “New Millennium”. He opened with the iconic line, “Inna mi Karl Kani, wid a bottle a tall Canei, tuff a life?”, and Wayne Marshall showed that he had a great career ahead of him when he delivered the hook/chorus. This great collaboration became an overnight hit for Vybz Kartel, a first in his career, and made way for his transition from upcoming Artist, to one of the greatest Dancehall Artists to ever do it. “New Millennium” was featured on Vybz Kartel’s 2003 debut album, “Up 2 Di Time“.

Since “New Millennium”, Vybz Kartel made more hits, got caught up in various controversies, held a #1 spot that became the envy of others, influenced many the world over in countless ways, and is a top name despite being currently incarcerated. No matter what, people will never forget “New Millennium” as it’s still a staple in many mixes, and Dancehall events 20 years later.
