Recording Artist/Internet Personality DyDy is back with another anthem for the ladies! The “Pineapple Queen” has been on a roll since the release of the single, “2 Can“, and is aiming to rack up more fans. While she had ladies quoting “Pineapple Fi Di Pum Pum“, she now wants them to be more empowered on the single, “Stress Free“. Produced by Track Starr Music, DyDy isn’t here for the “f*** boys“, is all about her marriage to the dollars, and is determined to stay progressive no matter what or who comes her way. DyDy also paid homage to the former Dancehall Artist Queen Lady Saw (now Minister Marion Hall) as she quoted a couple lines from the hit, “Man Is Di Least“. Let this one blaze many trails as it will empower the ladies and encourage them to stay on top of things. Keep your heads high ladies, life is about making great things happen. Check out the track below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Yep, it’s a rainy time in Jamaica…a VERY rainy time. While many are dodging raindrops to get to their destinations, there are others who have taken to the beds, called in sick, and kicked off the “Day Off”. While we understand both sides of this coin, we’re here to provide a lil soundtrack for these heavy showers. We sympathize with those who are having it hard at this time, and we hope some well needed relief comes your way! Check out the songs! Stay dry!
1. Rain Music – Chronixx
2. It’s Raining – Maria Providence
Recently, a certain Artist opened a can of worms with a rather “spicy” single. While folks are in a uproar about it, we’ve heard it all before. The Dancehall culture has had a stance on certain sexual practices for years, but with more people having an open mind, some Artists tend to stir the pot by adding taboo themes in their singles. Here are a few that sparked the conversation.
1. Sycamore Tree – Lady Saw (1996)
In a year when the “Joyride Riddim” was taking over airwaves, the Dancehall Artist born Marion Hall used her platform to chase away men who wanted oral “favors” on “Sycamore Tree”. At the time, a woman who was known to do such things were often chastised, even from the recipients. Things have changed in 20 years…Do you remember?
2. Tanya Stephens – Freaky Type (1998)
Before your favourite Artist did it, Tanya was not afraid to put a spotlight on it. If you “burned” it out in public, but did it in the dark, you may not have liked this song. To Tanya it was always the ones most vocal against it were the “professionals”. Over a Baddis Production, she sure liked the “Freaky Type”.
