It’s Christmas Day all over the world, and whatever the reason, may you find love, joy, and rest during the season. While some may have done away with the gifts and matching PJs, it’s time for a lil music. While you sip on the Sorrel, tune into Oldies Sunday to hear Johnny Osbourne’s “Christmas Stylee“!

Produced by Sir Coxsone Dodd and released through Studio One in 1980, Johnny Osbourne gives us a special selection that gets listeners excited for the Christmas season. Paired with great production and performed with The Family Group, Osbourne shares the news of the birth of King Jesus, and gets us all into the groove. You couldn’t help but dance and singalong to this track, and it became an instant favourite for many. “Christmas Stylee” was featured on the “Sir Coxsone’s Family Album: Christmas Stylee” Compilation Album and “Reggae Christmas From Studio One“, and are just some of the many Jamaican Christmas compilations that have been released over the years.

.@YannickPaul_ Continues To “Bear Fruit” With Latest Release


Gospel-Reggae artist Yannick Paul returns to the scene with something new. While he shared a testimony of God’s love on last year’s “Any Situation“, he continues to spread the word of God in his latest single, “Bear Fruit“.

On the track, Yannick Paul shares that he is still walking with Christ, but at the same time wanting to do more to strengthen his faith. He shares with the listener that God is still real, and encourages others to know HIM more and stay connected. The same way we aim to stay connected to the Wifi, we should all work on being more in tune in our faith. Yannick tends to stand out with his delivery as he deejays, and he guarantees that no matter the number, this song will connect with them one way or the other. The single is a part of a project that Yannick is currently working on for a 2021 release. A music video for the track will follow shortly.

2018 Faves: @LenoBanton x @BlvkH3ro x @TheGreiShow – Black Jesus


As 2018 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 10 (in no particular order so hold off on the ego) to reminisce on, or get familiar with.

This next track promotes “All Black Everything“, including the appearance of the Saviour. Recording Artists Leno Banton, Blvk H3ro, and The Grei Show teamed up to speak about “Black Jesus“. Produced by SNR Beats, they each shared their own interpretation of Jesus Christ as they seek to be closer to him, and learn his teachings. This one may have opened up a few conversations.

.@LenoBanton @BlvkH3ro & @TheGreiShow Follow “Black Jesus” In New Song!


The skin colour has been a topic of discussion among many for centuries but is Jesus Christ black, or white? Many sects of Christianity have pictured the Messiah as a black man complete with an afro, while others recognize a blue eyed, long flowing hair white individual. Today, the trio of Leno Banton, Blvk H3ro, and The Grei Show say “everything black” in their new track, “Black Jesus“. Produced by SNR Beats, the Artists speak on their interpretation of the physical appearance of GOD’s son, and their desire to follow and learn from him. Expect this one to make some noise, stay woke! The debates will continue, but the interpretations are up to you. Artwork by Paige Zxmbie! Check out the track below, and follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Seasons Greetings! On today’s Oldies Sunday, we head on over to the twin Islands of Trinidad & Tobago for some Parang!

Today’s selection comes from the “Queen of Parang“, the late Daisy Voisin with “Alegría, Alegría“. Produced by Arnold Shuffler and released through RH Productions in 1981, this song is about the birth of Jesus and his role as saviour. The single was featured on her album “Parang Queen” and has been one of her most notable songs. While sung in Spanish, we’ll give you the English version below. We hope you enjoyed our selection, and we encourage you to tune in next Sunday for another! Live on, Queen Daisy Voisin!
