After finding his footing and creating music that have been mainstays in the playlists of many in recent years, Recording Artist Khxos continues his mission with the release of his latest EP, “Melanin“. Following up to his 2018 debut album “Dopamine“, Khxos doesn’t change much in the formula, but ensures that there’s an anthem or fave for everyone. Featuring 6 tracks, Khxos hopes this project will make an even greater impact on the scene as each track promotes and celebrates that “melanin love“. With contributions from Blvk H3ro, Konshens, Zagga, Kim Gebriel, Royal Blu, and Dehshh, this EP promises high replay value. Check out the EP below, and share with a friend.

The 2019 Carnival season is officially on its way, and Dancehall artists are teaming up with Soca’s finest stars for various collaborations. It’s definitely a good look for the genres as it gives them more leverage to different markets, even after the seasons is done. Carnival is an International brand with different cities and countries around the world hosting their own. With more interest in the Caribbean culture over the years, it’s a pivotal moment for Dancehall and Soca to make a greater push for the International market with these collaborations. For those unfamiliar, the Jamaican love affair with Soca and Carnival dates back to the 1940s at the University of the West Indies (Mona Campus), and the collaborations over time are just great moments in this ever growing union. With their feel good vibes and ability to bring people together, the collaborations will continue. Today we’re featuring a few of the Dancehall x Soca crossovers that are currently making waves on the scene.

This is for the ladies who have “the face of an Angel, but the eyes of the Devil” who ride shotgun in their man’s car. Be ready for whatever girl! Konshens continues his run of International collaborations. From tracks with Rick Ross, Nipsey Hussle, and E-40 to name a few, we get the visual with Recording Artist B-Rae for the The Kemist produced track, “Shotgun“! While we find B-Rae proclaiming the role as a “Ride or die chick” on the track, Konshens holds it down for her and assures her that they’re a great combination. Throughout the Sam Braventon directed video however, we find them counting money, cruising in a Chevy Bel-Air, and escaping a Police raid. It’s all about being together forever, having each other’s backs, and making a lot of things happen together no matter how what’s going on. Off B-Rae’s 2017 “Sparkle City, The World May Never Know” EP, check out the video below, and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
The ladies are gonna go crazy for this one. If you’re a follower of Dancehall Artist Konshens, you know he always has a fire tune for the ladies. Recently, he released a bunch of them via a project titled, “Raw“. With 14 tantalizing tracks, the temperature will definitely climb even in the coldest of spaces when this is played. What will open the flood gates however, is track #9 “Say My Name” featuring Dexta Daps, another Artist who keeps the ladies on cloud 9 consistently. Produced by Dre Day and SOS Dynamikz (a lil about him here), the duo are competing for the #1 spot for the ladies, as they know what they do to ensure the women come back for more. For some, the final pick is tough, but the final decision needs to be made. Who do you need inside your world? Whose is it? Say his name now! Check out the track below, and share with a friend!

Shenseea’s doubling up on the features today as she joins Konshens and Rvssian in the visual for “Hard Drive“!

Frame X God, you’ll need a large Popcorn with extra butter as this looks like a release big enough for the Theaters! The single is currently available on all your favourite streaming services. It’s gonna be a hot Summer, ladies it’s time to back it up like a hard drive! Check out the video below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
