2018 saw Recording Artist Sara Bloom making her debut which was praised by many. With the jazzy debut single “Wanna Know” capturing hearts, her collab with Matt Dewar on “Get Lonely” had folks asking for more. Fresh off the first staging of her “New Breath” event series, she linked up with Matt and Jeeby Lyricist for the groovy “Slow Whine“. With some production by CRT$, the trio deliver a number that will have the ladies feeling themselves on the dance floor and showing off their moves for the world to see. With Sara providing some sweet vocals, Matt and Jeeby provide the lyrics that you can’t help but rewind! Grab a partner and buss a wine to this! Slow down time and have fun.

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.
Taking the 3rd spot today is Jeeby Lyricist with “Mobaby“! Inspired by Recording Artist Jidenna’s “Bambi“, Jeeby teamed up with Producer The Kash (who remade the Instrumental) in May/June to speak on the ills that affect his hometown of Montego Bay, St. James. He even speaks on them through the role of a Scammer. Many come to Jamaica thinking it’s all white sandy beaches, continuous partying, and chill vibes. Just like the rest of the World however, there are issues like crime and violence, corruption, and poverty. A song with a message. If you missed our 4th pick, check it out here. Hear our 3rd pick below!
As July comes to a close, we take the time out to appreciate the beauty that is the West Indies. No matter which Island you reside in, there is an abundance of beauty there that makes it unique. Today, Jamaican Artists Jeeby Lyricist, Blvk H3ro and Kione Zaire show their appreciation for their Island on “Blessed Indies“! Produced by Wavy Jones, they all take turns expressing what makes their Island home special, and what you’re in for when you do visit. From St. E to Ochi, Mobay to Bull Bay, you can circle around town with this unofficial Jamaica Tourism campaign! Apply this to your respective Islands as we all are blessed in the West Indies.

Jamaica, Land We Love. Many outsiders know of the Resorts, the Beaches, living the “Island Life“, but there’s another side to our beautiful Island that is at times exposed. Following the death of a close friend, Recording Artist and Montego Bay, St. James resident Jeeby Lyricist released the visuals for “Mobaby“. Featuring Miss Jamaica Universe 2016 Isabel Dalley, and various clips highlighting Montego Bay in recent times, the visual sheds a light on both the beautiful and ugly sides of this location as it’s a haven for Tourists and great Businesses, but a place where Crime has been a huge thorn in its side. Delivered over a beat remake of Jidenna’s “Bambi” from The Kash, this has been a favourite of ours for the month and the song can be seen on the same level as Protoje’s “BLXXD MONEY”. Would be dope to get more verses from Artists representing other locations (Artists where are you?). R.I.P. Jayson Barnes and all the fallen Mobabies. Watch the video below.
