.@TheRoyalBlu Builds On His Star Power With @JLLProd Produced, “Hype”!


Slowing down is something that you can’t find rising Recording Artist Royal Blu doing anytime soon. While he has been making moves over recent years, 2019 has been very promising so far. Since we’ve featured him as an Artist to watch, he has been adding fuel to his “El Fuego” alias and dropping nothing but fire. While we finally got the long anticipated visual for Meanwhile” with Leno Banton, he fed his hunger for more by popping up on various collabs, and dropping the “Style and Pattern” single and video (which boasts an all Jamaican production and raises the bar). Today, he goes up a few levels with the new track, “Hype“! Produced by longtime collaborator J.L.L. and released through Delicious Vinyl Island, Royal Blu fixes his crown and gets at naysayers who throw the term “hype” to his name as he’s more of a “hype with substance” type of person, and stays true to himself and those who know him. Many have stepped in his way to downplay his talent and determination, but frankly they’re not in his league, and he strives for quality and all that comes with it.

It’s a case of the “Damned if you do, damned if you don’t“, but Royal Blu doesn’t make much bother him as he sings to his own tune, and creates dope things. With an EP on the way to follow up his “sinG with God” project, if you didn’t know him before, now you know! With artwork provided by Ikem Smith, just stay tuned to see what else Royal Blu has rolled up his sleeve. For now, check out the track below and share with a friend.

.@LenoBanton & @TheRoyalBlu Finally Dropped The Visual For “Meanwhile”!


While this track scorched many playlists, melted speakers, and became one of our favourites in 2017, Leno Banton and Royal Blu finally give us the visual for their track, “Meanwhile“! With JRDN MARS handling the visual, the duo take turns hitting you with the lines that you’ve enjoyed over that JLL production. It’s the mixture of fuego and light speed that you can’t get enough of since the song’s release. A bit of a trippy visual here with the addition of performance clips, and MARS did a really great job here as they fit the song perfectly. It is recommended that you have some herb for an enhanced viewing effect. Dem a talk, and dem a pree, but we just want you to catch the premiere viewing below.

Producer @JLLProd Builds “Vibes With Bob” On New Project!


Nothing like a classic record isn’t it? Sometimes they don’t translate well with the new generation, and at times have to be tweaked a lil to get them to appreciate it. While this isn’t the case with today’s post, Jamaican Producer J.L.L. reimagines some of his favourite Bob Marley tunes with his latest remix project, “Vibes With Bob“. A Producer who we’ve included in our “Producers To Watch” feature and has made a name for himself through working with the likes of Chronixx, Smino, Royal Blu, Masego, Kranium, The Therapist, and Jane Macgizmo, this is a project to slowly enjoy like the sunset at your favourite location. With assistance from iotosh and Martel Howard, “Vibes With Bob” was 4 years in the making, and should have you ready to hear more. Check out the project below, and share with a friend!
