.@YannickPaul_ Continues To “Bear Fruit” With Latest Release


Gospel-Reggae artist Yannick Paul returns to the scene with something new. While he shared a testimony of God’s love on last year’s “Any Situation“, he continues to spread the word of God in his latest single, “Bear Fruit“.

On the track, Yannick Paul shares that he is still walking with Christ, but at the same time wanting to do more to strengthen his faith. He shares with the listener that God is still real, and encourages others to know HIM more and stay connected. The same way we aim to stay connected to the Wifi, we should all work on being more in tune in our faith. Yannick tends to stand out with his delivery as he deejays, and he guarantees that no matter the number, this song will connect with them one way or the other. The single is a part of a project that Yannick is currently working on for a 2021 release. A music video for the track will follow shortly.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Lady Patra – Queen Of The Pack (1993)


There are many Queens, but there is only one Queen Patra! Today she celebrates Lady Patra’s birthday, and we honour her on Oldies Sunday by highlighting her classic “Queen Of The Pack” single!

Produced by Clifton “Specialist” Dillon and Tony “CD” Kelly and released through Epic Records in 1993, “Queen Of The Pack” was Patra’s way of promoting female empowerment as she showed that she can stand on her own, is strong, smart, and beautiful, and she runs things! Patra had no problems standing out in a male dominated Dancehall scene, and it paid off for her. “Queen Of The Pack” was one of Patra’s most memorable singles, and was featured on her 1993 debut album of the same name. It was later remixed by Producer Salaam Remi, and covered by Dancehall Artist Destiny Sparta in 2016.

Since “Queen Of The Pack”, Patra went on to release more singles, took some time off from music to complete her degree in History & Political Science, returned with more music, and flexed her entrepreneurial muscle with her Chateau 7 restaurant in Kingston. You can shuffle the deck all you want, but the “Queen Of The Pack” will always be on top! Big up Patra, and Happy Birthday!

Watch What You Say To @MainlyMali, Those Are “Fighting Words”!


It’s been a while since we’ve featured Alex Mali, but she has been pretty busy since our last feature. Never slowing down the grind, she has been making the rounds as one of the hot artists you should have on your radar. With her unique style and Caribbean influences, you’d be lying if you don’t like what she brings to the table. Recently, she released her “Phenom EP“, and today we check out the video for one of the EP’s tracks, “Fighting Words“.

Directed by Mali, Frank Apollonio, and Xtina Prince, we hear Alex going through it with people who just can’t accept that she’s in her own world and they should mind their business. You say something slick to her however, she has the right to do something about it. The video for the track is simple but effective as she is joined by some young ladies who all have specific words written on their faces. According to Mali, those words have been stereotypically used for women over and over. The usage of them in the video shows that they won’t be oppressed by them. Alex Mali continues to showcase her unique style, and if you haven’t been hip to her yet, don’t hesitate to do so now.
