OLDIES SUNDAY: Super Black – Deh Wid You (1986)

It’s another Oldies Sunday! Today, we’re turning up the vibe with a classic. Today’s selection comes from Super Black with the single, “Deh Wid You“.

Produced by King Jammys on the “Heavenless Riddim” and released through the Jammys label in 1986, Super Black steps to a young lady who entered his life “like she big and she broad“. Super Black takes on a melodic delivery on “Deh Wid You” as he shares to the lady that she would’ve been the right Woman for him to love and lavish with gifts had his experience with her was a favourable one, and she had certain qualities about her. “Deh Wid You” was an instant hit for Super Black, as it gained popularity locally and internationally in the dance, and in the mainstream. “Deh Wid You” was featured on the compilation project, “Double Twin Spin Vol. 1” in 1986/87, and became Super Black’s most successful single. A music video directed by famed Director Llewellyn O’Reggio was made in support of the track, and was a hit as well on local Television. “Deh Wid You” was sampled by Junior Cat for his track, “Woulda Let You Go“.

Since the release of “Deh Wid You”, Super Black went on to release more music. He scored a few more hits along the way, but found it difficult to top the success of “Deh Wid You”. “Deh Wid You” is still celebrated along with some of his other hits, and Super Black is recognized as one of the voices who ruled in the early years of Dancehall.

Thank You Super Black For This Classic!

Charlie Chaplin "Cry Blood" for

OLDIES SUNDAY: Charlie Chaplin: Obeah Business (1991)

It’s October 31, and in certain parts of the world, Halloween is celebrated. While Jamaicans don’t celebrate Halloween (expect the American minded folks), Jamaica’s music culture has shared a few words on ghosts (duppy), monsters, demons, vampires, and those who practice witchcraft and black magic. For today’s Oldies Sunday selection, we look at those whose practices involve potions, elixirs, and spirits. We go back to a couple decades to check out Charlie Chaplin’sObeah Business“.

Produced by Doctor Dread on the “Heavenless Riddim” and released through Ras Records in 1991, Charlie Chaplin puts fellow Entertainers on blast as he’s aware of their unethical practices to gain fame and fortune. While he does this in a comical way, he shares his experience in meeting an Obeah Man who exposed a few of his peers who sought the Obeah Man’s services that use his “powers” to give them success. The Obeah Man also shares that some of them owe him money, and he will use these same powers to bring bad omen their way until the fees are covered. The Obeah Business has been a very profitable one for decades as people would spend exuberant amounts of money to get their wishes granted. Charlie Chaplin’s “Obeah Business” gained some popularity when it was released as the Deejay was already a big name on the scene. The single was featured on his 1991 album, “Cry Blood“. Watch out for strange powder being sprinkled your way, and stay prayed up as there are people out there who wish to see your downfall.

thank you charlie chaplin!
