One word that can be used to describe Recording Artist/Youtuber CV LNJ, and that is “determined“. While his journey hasn’t been the smoothest one, he is working hard to become one of the respected Artists out there, and a name to remember. Recently, he released his latest project titled “No Regrets“, and today he drops the video of the same name! Directed by D Brown and featuring DJ Ellygan, CV is seen having some summer fun with some good folks while speaking on the times people tried to block his blessings, and how he lives a life with no regrets. For those who a little boost today, let CV’s lyrics add fuel to your fire, and push forward! CV’s “No Regrets” project is available on Spotify, iTunes, and Apple Music now.

Jamaica, land of beauty! There is something really special about the Island known as “The Land of Wood & Water“, and no matter what’s going on, many are proud to call it home. Today, Recording Artist Raine Seville joins her 7 year old Daughter Layla-Rei in a patriotic new single, “Big Up Jamaica“. Produced by Seville Records and Tekktroniic Muziq and sampling the infamous “Stalag Riddim” (originally by Winston Riley), Layla-Rei lets us in on what makes Jamaica so unique while Mama Raine provides backup. From our unique culture, sights, music, to names who have represented us on the world stage, you won’t regret knowing and experiencing JamRock! Word is a music video for this is dropping on Independence Day (August 6), but you can stream the single in the meantime on Apple Music, Spotify, and Tidal. Can you name other Jamaican Mother/Daughter duos? We love this! Check out the track, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
With all the craziness going on in the world, it is easy to get lost. With negative messages being spread everywhere, you could find yourself being caught up in it if you’re not careful. Producer Dale Virgo is aware of it all and aims to clear the air with nothing but good music on his “Upful” EP!
Featuring 10 tracks with contributions from Christopher Martin, Jah Vinci, D.A. Jay, Troy Anthony, Angele Smith, Moses, Senita, and ShortBoss, Virgo not only handled production on this with assistance from Troy Baker and Ryan Byfield, but he performed under the name ANTOU on the opening track. It is nothing but that good Reggae music from DZL Records that will rise you above all the madness. Consider this EP the medicine you enjoyed taking, even when you weren’t sick. The only results from this overdose are nothing but good vibes and a peace of mind. Prepare to keep this one on high volume as it’s available on all your favourite Digital streaming outlets such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Deezer.

February 6 marks the day two Reggae legends were born, Bob Marley, and Bunny Rugs. Bob Marley started out in Trench Town, and became a larger than life Icon while Bunny Rugs made his mark as a Solo Artist, and Lead Vocalist for one of Reggae’s most successful Bands, Third World. While many pay respects to them today, we’d like to look back at a few songs that further immortalized them through samples. Samples will come from Bob Marley’s solo singles, or with The Wailers, and from Third World Band during Rugs’ time. Enjoy!
Sampled on: Notorious B.I.G. – Hold Ya Head (2005)
Sampled on: Little Brother ft. Mos Def – Let It Go (2006)
This Oldies Sunday selection is for the lovers, and it comes from the “Songbird from Jamaica“, Karen Smith! Today we go back to the year 1986 with “Wide Awake In A Dream“. Produced by Clifton “Jackie” Jackson, this was a cover of a single that has been sung by the likes of Barry Biggs, The Blues Busters, Jerry Jackson, Lyn Collins, Vickie Anderson, and Ken Boothe. Once she stepped into recording mode, Smith added her own flair to the track as she expresses how she feels about the love of her life. A video was also shot for this single, and it was directed by Alfonso Walker (I remember seeing this video a lot growing up on local TV).
