We Look Back At Songs That Sampled @TootsMaytals In Our Latest Playlist!

On September 11, 2020, the world lost a legend named Toots Hibbert. A pioneer in Jamaican music, he has been heralded near and far as the inventor of Reggae. His contributions to music are vast, and he and The Maytals have inspired generations. Up until news of his failing health, he was working on music and performing. Yesterday we paid tribute to him by highlighting the song that gave Reggae its name. Today, we highlight some of the songs that sampled and covered Toots & The Maytals through our latest Playlist.

From Foxy Brown, to Vanilla Ice, to Tone-Loc, to Lucky Dube, to Romain Virgo, you can relive the moments you’ve heard the classic singles, and learn about the music that paid homage to the classics. Frederick Nathaniel Hibbert paved the way for many, and we respect and honour him over here. Thank you for your life, your music, and your energy Toots Hibbert. Walk good!

Here she spoke about her “Infidelity” single with Bugle and their experiences (See video below), her performance at Sting 2013 and reasons for regretting it, working with rapper Flo-Rida, stepping away from the music scene for a short while which included going to church overseas, being a victim of internet hackers (Twitter and Facebook), new projects including music with Markus Myrie, and family life. It’s unfortunate that Lady Saw was hacked but I’ll be looking forward to her new material. John John is here to stay. Check out the videos below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

NEW VIDEO: @LadySawDHQueen x @Official_Flo – Heels On (Remix)

FloSawAfter premiering the remix last year, Lady Saw and Flo Rida finally released the video treatment for their collaboration. “Heels On (Remix)” was directed by Evan Winter and shows alot of sensuality between various couples while Saw and Flo tell you how they want to love and be loved. A great effort here as the video has a white, gold and black theme to go along with the sensuality. Will Lady Saw make another banger like “Heels On” this year? Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
