OLDIES SUNDAY: Brick & Lace – Love Is Wicked (2007)


For today’s Oldies Sunday selection, we go back to a time when Trucker Hats were back in style, Von Dutch was a brand people were familiar with, Jamaica was trending Internationally thanks to a few great Jamaican Artists, and this Jamaican girl group were on the verge of blowing up overseas. That girl group originally consisted of sisters Nailah, Nyanda, and Tasha Thorbourne, but was later reduced to just Nailah and Nyanda, and they were called, “Brick & Lace“! Today, we check out “Love Is Wicked“.

Produced by Steven “Lenky” Marsden on the “Diwali Riddim and released in 2007, Brick & Lace spoke about a love that despite being everything they wanted and they’d give their all for it, that person that gave the love never belonged to them, and has resulted in hurt. The song’s upbeat production made it a danceable one, and the hook was very catchy. The deliveries on “Love Is Wicked” stood out thanks to Nailah’s singing and Nyanda’s singjaying, and it quickly became a hit in Jamaica, and parts of the world.

“Love Is Wicked” successfully crossed over to the International market, and was featured in the soundtrack to “Bratz: The Movie“, got featured on “Jimmy Kimmel Live“, was included in the soundtrack for the “Sims 2” video game, and has enjoyed a number of remixes. Brick & Lace capitalized off the success of “Love Is Wicked” with a debut album of the same name which was released in 2007.

Since the release of “Love Is Wicked”, Brick & Lace went on to release a few more singles while being signed to Akon’s Kon Live label, formed a songwriting team with sisters Tasha and Candace called Bloodline, launched solo careers (Nailah goes by “Nyla” while Nyanda used her name), and the duo is currently enjoying TikTok love as “Love Is Wicked” has been gaining viral success since 2021, and grew even more thanks to TikToker Cynesse. Will the Thorbourne sisters return to the scene as a duo? Who knows, but “Love Is Wicked” remains a classic.

Thank You Brick & Lace For This Classic!

.@DuttyPaul’s “Get Busy” Featured In @NetflixFilm, “Along For The Ride”


Have you been watching any good movies lately? Here’s something that appeared on our radar recently. Netflix recently released the film, “Along For The Ride“. Starring Emma Pasarow, Belmont Cameli, and Andie McDowell, this is a Romance/Drama film that finds two Teenagers meeting up nightly to help one experience the fun, carefree teen life before heading off to College. The main reason for this post however, is the fact that a Dancehall classic was featured in the film!

During a few minutes into the film, Sean Paul’s 2002 GRAMMY nominated classic, “Get Busy” was featured. Produced by Steven “Lenky” Marsden on the “Diwali Riddim” (you can find a Playlist dedicated to this Riddim here.), Sean Paul’s “Get Busy” was the summer Dancehall anthem around the world, and was featured on his GRAMMY winning seanmultiplatinum album, “Dutty Rock“. Sean Paul has had some of his music featured in films before, and we highlighted the inclusion of his Sia collaboration “Cheap Thrills” last year in the “Black Widow” film. The “Along For The Ride” film is available for viewing now on Netflix.

.@BujuBanton & @JohnLegend Reunite And Reflect On “Memories”


Since his release from prison in 2018, Jamaican Icon Buju Banton has been on a run. With performances and new music all 2019 and early 2020, Buju has been back like he never left. Today, he reunites with another musical icon, John Legend on “Memories“. It’s been 12 years since their collab, “Can’t Be My Lover“, and now their pairing is just as good as they reflect on past lovers who they still very much have feelings for. With Buju, Lenky Marsden, and Donovan Germain handling production, it’s a song that’s very relatable, and a showcase of two friends creating some great music.

“Memories” is featured on Buju’s upcoming album, “Upside Down“, which will see a release later this year through Gargamel Music/Roc Nation. Good to hear new Buju, and a reunion with John Legend.
