Sean Paul is the man for real. With a career spanning 20 years and over 26 million records sold, it’s crazy how he can still churn out the hits. Today’s selection is no different as he teams up with popular US DJ Valentino Khan for “Gold“! Featuring the “Dutty Yeah” Artist’s Dancehall lyrics over an EDM production, this is for the girls with a body of Gold that’ll make the men do anything to be in their presence and shine with them. Sean has been on a run with the International collaborations, and there will be no stopping this anytime soon! The single is also featured on DJ Collective Major Lazer’s upcoming Apple Music exclusive Documentary “Give Me Future“, so that’s a huge look for both Artists. Pay that toll, get that “Gold” by listening to the track below!
During the Reggae Sumfest festivities, Pepsi Jamaica announced the newest flavour to their Soft Drink lineup. With “Ginger Pepsi“, drinkers are in for a lil extra “Spice” for their Summer.

Dropping the lyric video for her first track off her debut EP, “Gold” is Kat C.H.R. Titled “Gold” and directed by Andrew Grey, listeners are treated to performance videos, random videos with Kat, and of course the lyrics to her song. Good effort here as “Gold” has been a popular song and If a real music video is being made I’m sure it will be pleasing just as the lyrics video. Kat’s “Gold” EP is on iTunes now! Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Jamaican singer-songwriter, Kat C.H.R has come of age with her latest project – GOLD -written by Kat and co-produced with Andrew ‘Preggs’ Thompson who has toured the world with international recording artist Sean Paul, and whose drumming and production expertise has made him a household name throughout Jamaica’s alternative music scene.
After wrapping a music production partnership with New York based music mogul and former CEO of Roc A Fella Records, Damon Dash for his DD172 Media Collective, Kat returned to Jamaica to reconnect on her original stomping grounds and record the songs featured on GOLD.
“It’s like a coming of age project for me. My music has always been true to my life. These songs represent me to the fullest. I keep my thoughts golden, I keep my heart golden and inevitably, my art isgolden. People used to see me at shows and say oh I had no idea you were going to sound like that but they are always intrigued by my contradiction. There is a light inside me that wants to shine, GOLD is that light. It’s my labour of love,” says Kat.
The EP features four tracks – GOLD, MANGO, OVER MY HEAD and TURN AROUND – each delivering her paradoxical yet authentic musical style that has gained her fans all around the world. These songs showcase not only her versatility as an artist but also why she’s known as a lyrical heavyweight.
According to Kat, “this project represents growth for me as an artist, with each song I’m evoking that distinct connection between my hardcore, tomboy image, and my sensitive lyrics and smooth melodies… It all finally makes sense.”
Now armed with a wealth of experience, new management and an arsenal of new music she has signed a distribution deal for GOLD with international recording artist, Diana King’s US based record label ThinkLikeAgirL Music Inc.
“Kat C.H.R represents exactly what ThinkLikeAgirLMusic is about! Artists who have no boundaries, no limits and no fear to create across genres while being true to themselves. ThinkLikeAgirL is all about being unorthodox,” says King.
GOLD is now available on iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/gold-ep/id796477614
Today’s new video comes from two members of the A$AP Mob, Ferg and Rocky. Titled “Shabba Ranks“, we see Ferg living a life of luxury with ladies taking care of him, sleeping in a mansion, driving a Ferrari, partying with friends and being draped in gold and fine clothing. We also hear them rapping about luxury, women and chanting legendary Jamaican Deejay Shabba Ranks’ name throughout the song. The duo doesn’t stop there for later in the video a surprise cameo was made by Shabba himself and they all have a ball. Not a bad video, the song is pretty catchy but seeing Shabba Ranks in the video was everything! What do you think of the video? Check it out below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
One word: GREATNESS. Much love to our Jamaican athletes that took on the many challenges that were handed to them at the London 2012 Olympics. Our little Island in the sun has become a BIG black green and gold sign for the world to take notice of. This was more than a present for celebrating 50 years of Independence.
