The power of Reggae/Dancehall music continues spread and influence the world over, and it’s no surprise when many folks outside of Jamaica find themselves becoming Artists. Today we feature Orti, a French Recording Artist, with the music video for his single “Breaking Bad“. Bringing some Dancehall “bad man” vibes and a lil influence from the hit TV Series (“Breaking Bad“), Orti can be seen making boss moves throughout the video as he oversees his operations. We love the bilingual delivery on this as well, and the production will definitely have you keeping it on repeat. For those unfamiliar with Orti, he was featured on Singer Shav-A’s “I Need You (Remix)“! Off his upcoming “Golden Touch EP“, check out the video below and share with a friend.

Happy Friday folks! How about some new music? Today’s new Artist comes from Reggae Royalty, and her name is Shav-A! Daughter of foundation Recording Artist Admiral Tibet, she has been on the grind in recent times including releasing her 2018 single, “I Need You“. To start off 2019, she goes International as she teamed up with French Recording Artist Orti on “I Need You (Remix)“! Produced by Don Charles, Shav-A and Orti give us some Dancehall Pop vibes here, but the track leans towards “AfroDanceMusic” thanks to its multi-genre inspired production. For those who yearn for their special someone to get home, keep this one on repeat till that phone call comes through, or the knock is at your door. “It was fun making “I Need You”, and when I did the remix with Orti, it was a walk in the park and definitely a track that I know you will love,” said an enthused Shav-A when asked about making the remix. “Orti is very talented, and I look forward to working with him again and other International Artists.“
With Shav-A’s sound, she will definitely be an Artist to watch out for this year as she steadily carves her own musical path. Shav-A also has plans to release an EP later this year, and it promises to make a lot of noise on the music scene. Check out the track below, and share with a friend.

Today’s Oldies Sunday Selection comes from Jamaican Recording Artist, Carl Douglas. Titled “Kung Fu Fighting (Buy It Here)“, this was produced by Biddu for PYE Records in 1974. At that time, Martial Art films (termed “Chopsocky“) were increasing in popularity worldwide (especially in Jamaica), and at a time during the rise of Disco music, Carl created it as a tribute.
Where is the Kush man, where is the dealer? Tommy Lee Sparta debuts his latest video and he needs his vice. Titled “Numb“, this was executive produced by Mylana Malsert Celle and shot by Anthony Godio in France. Accompanied by the NSA Human Dance crew, the Sparta boss speaks on the need for a smoke to escape his lows and calls on the weed man. Tommy Lee has been very consistent lately and he continues to surprise me with the quality of his music videos and the locations he chose to get them done. International Sparta King.

Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Singer/Songwriter Diana King. Titled “Shy Guy” and produced by Andy Marvel in 1995, Diana sings about being a very desirable lady who all the men are eager for but would rather the affection from a “shy guy“. She speaks on refusing to be with a fly guy, a “rough neck” and a guy who’s “loving everybody” and details what she likes about a shy guy. In “Shy Guy” she delivered the song in English and Jamaican Patois.
