Our Jamaican culture continues to be undefeated when it comes to influencing music. Canadian Recording Artist Big Lean is one of those who embraced the culture and made it a part of the music. Born to Jamaican Immigrants, he has been making noise for some time. Recently he premiered his single and music video, “Stamina“. Directed by Zac Facts, Big Lean shares a little of his “Yardie” side and speaks on his Mom wanting Grandkids, shows off that he can “Handle di wuk” once he downs a Dragon Stout, instructs his lady to “wine pon di ting“, is a “Gallis inna real life” and states “Me likkle but me tallawah“. With Producer Sevn Thomas handling the beat, this makes to be an easy going listen from Big Lean. Something to grab a gal and slow wine with. A so yuh fi wine baby!

Produced by Boi-1da, the single features a Dancehall flavoured production with a “Bruk Out” sample that was made popular thanks to the Xtra Large label’s “Bruk Out Riddim” which made its debut in 1998.

Top Selector Tony Matterhorn, rising act Yung Whoa and hit International Artist Nox has combined efforts for a Dancehall, Hip Hop and Reggaeton masterpiece. The song, titled Make It Flow, was produced by hit Producer JL, under the supervision of Platinum Camp Records CEO, Mr. Biggs.
Tony Matterhorn is known widely in the Dancehall arena for his bold personality on and off stage as an Entertainer; Yung Whoa is the newest sensation on the Latin market, and Nox is known for his hit combinations with the likes of Missy Elliot, Chris Brown, Scott Storch and a few other big names. The song showcases a fun and exciting dance craze that has embellished each of the markets respectively.
According to Mr. Biggs, the idea was to bring three major talents together from different markets to create something fresh. “Whatever I am working on, it must have an International appeal and this song is no exception. It is fresh, it is hot and it was a great team effort from everyone and we are looking for great things to come.” Make It Flow was scheduled to be officially released later this month, but with the preliminary release doing so well, the team decided to drop the single earlier. The track is currently dominating the entire Latin market and gained a buzz in the Caribbean and the US.
“I am confident that this single is going to take this world by storm. It has far exceeded my expectations and has become a hit overnight on Social Media, garnering thousands of likes and shares,” Said Mr. Biggs. Plans are already on the way for a video for the single in early October. Fans will be happy to know that the song can be purchased from all digital platforms including iTunes and Amazon Music.
In addition the team has spearheaded a Dance Competition for the best female Dancer that submits a video performing this song. The prize for the best entry is USD$500.
