@BusySignal_Turf, @DuttyPaul, & More Featured On New @MajorLazer EP!


The trio of Walshy Fire, Diplo and Jillionaire a.k.a. Major Lazer are on a mission to leave a mark this Summer with their recent EP, “Know No Better“. The project, featuring 6 songs, is a mix of Dancehall, EDM, Afrobeat, Hip Hop, Reggaeton, and Pop Music. Never a stranger to the Caribbean, they’ve managed to bring along Recording Artists Busy Signal, Konshens, Sean Paul, and Machel Montano. Busy Signal appears on the track, “Jump”, which promises to bring the same energy as his “Watch Out For This” hit with ML, while Sean Paul appears with J Balvin on “Buscando Huellas”, and Konshens & Machel Montano appear on “Front Of The Line”, which is the EP’s first single and is currently featured in Bacardi Rum’s latest Commercial (which can be seen below).

Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Future: 8 Artists Who Started Out Young


In recognition of May being Child’s Month, 13th Street Promotions is dedicating this Oldies Sunday post to the youth. Many of us can look back at our own childhood when we’d imitate our favourite Artists and pretend we are established stars. What many may or may not know is that some of our favourites started out or even got discovered in their early stages. While we know that acts like the late US Pop Star Michael Jackson and Jamaican Singer Jimmy Tucker started out very young (Jimmy was Jamaica’s 1st Child Prodigy in the 1950s), we’d like to inform you or refresh your memory on some of our Caribbean acts who started out young.

1. Machel Montano (Debut Age: 9) – Too Young To Soca

2. Beenie Man (Debut Age: 8) – Too Fancy

@MachelMontano, @CharlyBlack876, @Troyton_TM Team Up For “VIP Girl”!


It’s a Caribbean connection when Trinidad’s Soca King Machel Montano teams up with Jamaica’s Diamond selling Dancehall Artist Charly Black and top Producer Troyton Hinds for “VIP Girl”! Bringing two musical giants in their respective genres together was something the Billboard Producer Troyton envisioned for a long time. The single was recently released under the Troyton Music label, and distributed by 21st Hapilos.
When asked about making the collaboration a possibility, Troyton recalls being invited to Trinidad along with Charly for a staging of “Machel Mondays” in February of 2016. During their rehearsals, the trio had a conversation about music and their successes in Dancehall and Soca when Troyton suggested Charly and Machel team up for a song. With approval from both sides, Troyton quickly worked on a Riddim after his arrival back to Jamaica. Soon after, Troyton reached out to Charly for his verses which were recorded in Jamaica, then reached out to Machel who worked on his in Trinidad.
Since its release earlier this month, the single has been constantly requested from DJs and fans alike both locally and Internationally. A music video is in the works with directorial duties being handled by Damion Gayle of Warrior Films with Trinidad and Jamaica being the locations chosen. When asked what makes a “VIP Girl”, Troyton replied, “A woman who possesses class, intelligence, and the right amount of sexiness!”.
“VIP Girl” is now available on iTunes.

NEW MUSIC: @MachelMontano x @TarrusRileyJA – Memory


They say the present is a gift, so we must create lasting memories out of it. Reminding us of this is a best of both worlds collab between Machel Montano and Tarrus Riley! Titled “Memory” and produced by Anson Soverall with writing from Emmanuel Rudder, Dale Ryan and Kit Israel, the artists speak on cherishing the moments with your loved ones and though the advancements of technology enables us to quickly document them, are they more significant than the old fashioned way? A single that promises to be a mainstay for years to come, I really would look forward to an collaborative project between these two artists, and a Major Lazer remix. Make it last forever!
