Have a sweet tooth? Need a sugar rush? Then we’re here to deliver you the goods to fix the cravings. After travelling far and near, we finally get the visual for Naomi Cowan’s super catchy single, “Paradise Plum“! Directed by Kia Moses and shot on Fleet Street and Life Yard in Kingston, Naomi hops on her funky Bicycle and cruises through the street and sprinkles that lovely song for everyone to hear. You can catch a few familiar faces along her journey like Black H3ro, Osunya Rose, Lindsey Lodenquai, and be treated to some pieces of Fashion from Tia Clothes Girl, YC, and Those Creative People. Since the first time we heard this Teflon Zincfence produced track, we knew it would’ve been a hit, and give us a few cavities. Get yourself a “Hot Gyal” fan after watching this hot video. Corporate Jamaica, it’s not too late to get this song in your campaigns. If you’re new to Naomi, we featured her as one of the female Artists you should have on your radar this year. Grab something cool and sweet, and check out the video below. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

(The Artists mentioned aren’t ranked in any way here, let’s get that out of the way…)
The “1One King” of Mobay started making a lot of noise late last year, and is no surprise to the lineup this year. With a buzz that quickly spread like wildfire thanks to tracks like “Tuff“, “Things Go Change“, “Feel Like This (Big Toe)“, and “Learn“, he quickly rose up the ranks with some of the best from the west. Don’t believe me? Watch his debut appearance at Reggae Sumfest 2018 below.
Earlier this year we featured this young lady as one of the female acts to look out for this year. With “Things You Say You Love” getting favourable spins currently, Naomi Cowan gives us more with a sweet treat titled “Paradise Plum“. Produced by Teflon ZincFence, Naomi gives us a song that many women in relationships can relate with. A blend of old school Lover’s Rock along with some samples and some of that Reggae Pop, try not to get too many cavities after listening to this one.
When asked about expectations about the single, Naomi shared, “My hope for this song is that it transcends boundaries. Everyone deserves that sweet, authentic, Paradise Plum type of love.“

In our “2018 Predictions” post, we predicted that there will be more Women making their way onto the Caribbean Music scene. In an Industry that hasn’t always been kind to the Female Artist, we have enjoyed the works from many over the years, but we have also asked for some who can step outside the box and give us music that’ll blow us away! The following Artists have been slowly making their name out there for some time, and aim to be mentioned along with their established peers.

We mentioned the songbird in our 15 Artists to look out for feature last year, and she has been making steady progress since her debut single, “So Shy“. This year has already seen her start off in a good way with “Doe Try Me“, with promises to deliver even more music. She steals the scene with her voice, and you need her in your playlists.
Jane has been on the scene for a while, but made a lot of noise in 2017 thanks to her single, “Too Late“. A member of Zinc Fence Records, she made her debut in 2014 with “Babylon” and has been on the radar of many ever since. Last year saw her music being featured in the Amazon Video series, “SYN”, and this year may be the year she releases a full length project! It’s not too late to get familiar with her.
