Do you remember the days when we only had each other? The opening Trumpets on Jimmy October’s latest single, “Remember The Days” will let you know that a hit is here! Accompanying the Trini Fire starter’s single is a music video directed by Nevaun Fabien which shows the Artist reflecting on moments with a young lady and how times were fun. Jimmy looks to flood the streets with new music as he is now a member of Protoje’s In.Digg.Nation Collective, a new signee to Delicious Vinyl Island, and it’s been a while since the release of his “Vacation EP“. When you press play, just be prepared to dance, and wuk up a sweat! Thank Tano and Kasey Phillips for the production. That Talk Box at the end? Many flame emojis. Check out the video below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
What is your life worth? What does Earth mean to you? Sevana wants you to take care of yourself and the world in the visual for “Justice“! Directed by Teeqs, Sevana reminds us here of Gaia from Captain Planet and The Planeteers as she shares the knowledge that people need to hear about what’s affecting our home. She also alerts those in power to make more efforts to do the right thing as Pollution continues to destroy valuable natural habitats and resources all over. Do your part to protect and preserve as Mother Earth is not one to be played with, and she’ll retaliate! A powerful song from Sevana, and a beautiful visual as we see a young man finds himself surrounded by nature, and becomes one with it with the help of Sevana. “Justice” is now available on all major streaming services, but you can watch the video below!
This a nuh no play ting, Protoje is back with another tune that’ll you’ll sing over and over. With a new Album on the way, he fires off, “‘Bout Noon“! With Winta James and Lamont “Monty” Savory handling the boards, Diggy may have just dropped a tune that can almost take over “Rasta Love” for the top spot as the new favourite. If you’ve never seen the impact “Rasta Love” had on the ladies when it dropped, you missed out on a moment. With “‘Bout Noon”, this calls for the secret getaways, the spontaneous dates, and even the late night Romantic Comedy watching while you and your significant other stay cozy under the fuzzy blanket. Make memories that’ll last forever off this. Lyric video provided by the talented Ikem Smith, and it’ll definitely have you wanting your “bae“. Be on the look out for Protoje’s currently untitled 4th Album that should show its face later this year. For now, give the new tune a few listens below.
As 2017 comes to a close, we look back at a few songs that were favourites on the Blog for the year. While we can’t name EVERY one, we’ll give you 5 (in no particular order so hold off on the ego) to reminisce on, or get familiar with.
Ending our list today is the one they call “Diggy British“, Protoje with “BLXXD MONEY (a.k.a. BLXXD MONEY)”! Produced by Winta James and released in February, Protoje sees red as he calls out Corruption, Classism, Injustice, and those who practice it in Jamaica. From Government leaders to those names in high places, Protoje starts a revolution, and wants you to be a part of it. Protoje never watched no face when rinsing this tune this year as he has painted the scene red at Festivals, Radio stops, and even at the recently held Prime Minister’s Youth Awards Ceremony. A tune that lifted the veil for many this year. Thank you for checking out our “2017 Faves“(see the rest here). We hope you enjoyed our selections, and we wish you an awesome 2018! Check out “BLXXD MONEY” below!
It’s been over two years since the release of Recording Artist Protoje’s “Ancient Future“, and it’s still a banger! What’s your favourite song off of it? Still wish it won a Grammy. If you’re a viewer of the hit FOX TV series Lethal Weapon, then you might’ve heard a familiar song from the Artist in their latest episode. Kicking off the first 30 seconds was the first single off the 2015 Album, “Answer To Your Name“! Produced by Winta James and Lewis Planter, Protoje went into storytelling mode on this one and had influences of Ska throughout the Production.
Lethal Weapon is a TV series based on the popular “Buddy Cop” Comedy Movie franchise which stars Comedian Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford. The Movie starred Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. Sidenote: Congrats to the new Dad Protoje, we hope the Lion Cub is ready for a fun life filled with good music and sights to see. Check out the clip below.
With fists raised, Protoje and Mortimer deliver an audio revolution with “Truths And Rights“! Produced by Winta James, the duo kick down the doors of injustice, inequality, oppression, and poverty, and encourage listeners to get in formation to set the oppressed free, and get people that mean the world well in power! With so much going on in the world, we all want better for ourselves, our Children, and their Children…but the good fight has to happen in order to see positive changes. Featured on the cover of the single is one of the photos taken during the Grenadian Revolution in March of 1979 which overthrew the government of Eric Gairy, the 1st Prime Minister of the Island by Maurice Bishop (Politician and leader of the New Jewel Movement (NJM)). Forward Ever, Backward Never! Another anthem from Diggy British and the young Mortimer! Be militant and check out the track below.
