Dutty yeah! Jamaican music continues to find itself in every nook and cranny of this Earth! While Popcaan enjoyed play time on the 2K16 edition, Recording Artist Sean Paul joins the line up for the Soundtrack for NBA 2K18! Featuring his 2016 “No Lie” collaboration with UK Artist Dua Lipa, players can rock to the soundtrack which also adds old school Hip Hop, Rock, and some of the more recent hit songs out there. “No Lie” was released last November on Island Records, and has since been certified Gold in the UK, Platinum in France, and has peaked to #2 in Hungary and the Czech Republic music charts. NBA 2K18 hits stores in September but you can hear the full soundtrack now on Spotify, and watch the video for the single below.
During his recent travels, the “Unruly Boss” Popcaan stopped by the Noisey offices to be a part of the “The People Vs” series. Here, Popcaan reads comments off Youtube for his 2015 Music Video for “Love Yuh Bad“. From the good to weird, Popcaan handles as many comments as he can from viewers worldwide. “Love Yuh Bad” was featured on Popcaan’s debut album, “Where We Come From“, and was sampled on Drake’s “Views” album. For those in the UK, you can catch Poppy performing alongside Stefflon Don, and D Double E. Popcaan is also busy working on new music, and maybe a follow up to his debut album.

Recording Artist Alexx A-Game has been pretty busy in recent times, but he had his moments where he surprises us with new music. Recently, he teamed up with Manchester, UK based DJ/Production Collective Swing Ting and it resulted in a remix to his very popular single, “A-Game Everyday“. A song that has been an anthem for the Blog and our affiliate Blaze 876 Radio, Swing Ting took A-Game’s vocals and brought their unique sound which was provided by members DJ Platt and DJ Samrai, and lifted the track up on another level! If you love the original, you’ll definitely love the remix! Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
You’ve seen her on TV, you’ve witnessed her performances on Broadway, you’ve assisted in her various causes over the years, but did you know Sheryl Lee Ralph is also a Singer? Today’s Oldies Sunday showcases a moment in her singing career with “In The Evening“! Produced by Trevor Lawrence and written by Lawrence and Frank Musker, this Dance/Pop single was released in 1984 and was a part of her only album, “In The Evening” on the The New York Music Company Label. On the single, Sheryl sings about the challenges of living in New York City, but all that is pushed aside when she becomes a part of the nightlife where she states, “The real me comes alive“.
Today we introduce to the Blog a Producer by the name of Wize. This UK based Producer has been making a name for his rather unique beats/remixes and today I feature one titled “Jealous“.

Expect more from this talented brother but for now, check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
