@MajorLazer, @IAmTheKartel’s “Pon De Floor” Featured In New @Cheerios Commercial


Jamaica has made its way onto International Televisions once again thanks to Commercials. Recently, Cereal brand Cheerios released a series of Commercials with the focus on Family. One Commercial in particular focused on Babies and providing the soundtrack was Major Lazer (which featured only Diplo and former member Switch at the time), and Vybz Kartel’s 2009 hit, “Pon De Floor“! The Commercial featured various clips of Babies and the messages, “More Babies, Please” and “They’re Fun!” while the Instrumental to the single plays throughout. “Pon De Floor” helped to bring Vybz Kartel’s career to another level (and Financial bracket), and went on to be sampled on one of Recording Artist Beyonce’s biggest hits, “Who Run The World (Girls)“! The single was also featured on Major Lazer’sGuns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do” album and opened the door for many remixes. Shout out Commercial Tunage!

Mixtape Rave With @Shanny_14


Lifestyle Blogger ShannyDeLioness is back for another week of “Mixtape Rave“! This week she serves you an array of Mixtapes she’s been feeling over the past 7 days. If you missed the previous installments, check them out here.

1. URBVN EVRGVSM VOL II – DJ Dono V

His calm demeanor is no telltale as to what he can do with a turntable. DJ Dono V is a young gun who is packing some serious DJing ammo and this mix is just an extension of his crowd rocking club DJing skills.

2. CHILL END OF 2015 – Ruan Legend of Dei Musicale

Some of 2015’s best hits found their way on this mix by ½ of the Trinidadian Musical Gods’ Dei Musicale. My favourite tracks are the Black Chiney x Sizzla KalonjiHotline Bling” Remix and of course Major Lazer x DJ Snake’sLean On”.
