Slowing down is something that you can’t find rising Recording Artist Royal Blu doing anytime soon. While he has been making moves over recent years, 2019 has been very promising so far. Since we’ve featured him as an Artist to watch, he has been adding fuel to his “El Fuego” alias and dropping nothing but fire. While we finally got the long anticipated visual for “Meanwhile” with Leno Banton, he fed his hunger for more by popping up on various collabs, and dropping the “Style and Pattern” single and video (which boasts an all Jamaican production and raises the bar). Today, he goes up a few levels with the new track, “Hype“! Produced by longtime collaborator J.L.L. and released through Delicious Vinyl Island, Royal Blu fixes his crown and gets at naysayers who throw the term “hype” to his name as he’s more of a “hype with substance” type of person, and stays true to himself and those who know him. Many have stepped in his way to downplay his talent and determination, but frankly they’re not in his league, and he strives for quality and all that comes with it.
It’s a case of the “Damned if you do, damned if you don’t“, but Royal Blu doesn’t make much bother him as he sings to his own tune, and creates dope things. With an EP on the way to follow up his “sinG with God” project, if you didn’t know him before, now you know! With artwork provided by Ikem Smith, just stay tuned to see what else Royal Blu has rolled up his sleeve. For now, check out the track below and share with a friend.

Before Royal Blu, before “sinG with God“, before “El Fuego“, there was Sean-Michael Francis a.k.a. “Blu Kid“! In today’s episode of our “Quick Throwback” series, we go back to the year 2011 to hear BluKid’s “Legal Badman“! Produced by Di Prodigyy, Blu sheds light on corruption in Jamaica’s Law Enforcement system where Police Officers abuse their powers and oppress many. Donning the role of a “Legal Badman“, they do whatever a Criminal would do, but shouldn’t face any repercussions because they wear the badge and the uniform.
Since the release of “Legal Badman”, BluKid went on to make some noise with the “Lethal Audio” Band, changed his name to “Royal Blu“, and released enough songs to make him one of the emerging young acts on the radars of many in Jamaica and overseas. Stay tuned for another quick throwback!

Creating an International appeal through the use of the social Inter web, the 13th Street Promo team took great pleasure in sitting and working with Royal Blu (Formerly “BluKid”) as one of its most incredible Interviews to date. After creating the right setting with Blvk H3ro and Leno Banton, it was only natural that we moved directly ahead to work directly with one of Jamaica’s budding prodigies. Let’s Begin…
13thStreetPromotions: Where does your talent come from? It resonates well with fans from what we’ve observed.
TheRoyalBlu: I’m the only one in my family that does music. The only one that I know of. So I’d like to believe that my talent is a direct gift from God. I’m just blessed to have people truly appreciate what I do.
13thSP: Have you gone through any voice training as an artiste?
TheRB: Yeah, I’ve done voice training up at Avant Acadamy of Music. Big up to Andrew Dixon for being my instructor. Although I skipped their end of year concert that they wanted me to perform at (haha). But yeah, apart from that, I just do my own personal warm-ups and stuff when I can.

Today I bring to you a musical selection from the one they call “El Fuego” a.k.a. Royal Blu. Titled “Jus Bill” and produced by J.L.L., we hear Blu flexing his lyrics and flows on a very laid back Jazzy Ella Fitzgerald sampled Production that will provide the soundtrack to you hopping in the car and taking that long cruise on the highway, or have you blasting it on the top of the highest elevation you have access to. Expect bouts of doing the “Dab” throughout the song, some “pull up” moments, and lots more feel good moments. This is what it sounds like when the sky is clear! Off his “Fuego Fridays” series, take a listen to the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
