Marcia Griffiths’ “Electric Slide” Sampled On @IAmCardiB’s “Hot S***” Single!


US Recording Artist Cardi B returns to form with new music this week. Officially making way for a new album, Cardi called up the arsenal to get the ball rolling with the new single, “Hot Shit“. Produced by Tay Keith, the track features verses from fellow Artists Lil Durk, and Kanye West. A high energy track just in time for the Summer, a small of a Jamaican classic could be heard in the track.

For a brief moment, you could hear a sample of Marcia Griffiths’ 1989 hit, “Electric Slide” accompanying a line on “Hot Shit”. Originally called “Electric Boogie” which was recorded and produced by the late Bunny Wailer in 1976, and released in 1980 and 1989, “Electric Slide” lived a few lives over the years. While it was a minor hit for Wailer in the late 70s and 80s, Marcia Griffiths’ 1983 version of the record was released and became a minor hit as well. It wasn’t until 1989 when a remixed version that was featured on Griffiths’ “Carousel” album quickly made it a dance staple around the world. The new version gave birth to the “Electric Slide” dance, which became the official dance for cookouts, family gatherings, Weddings, and various celebrations and events over the years.

Expect a lot more from Cardi B this year, and fans can look forward to a new project from her. In the meantime, check out the content below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Denise Belfon Ft. MAW & Puppah Nas-T – Work (2001)


You know we had to do this. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection will be a little spicy as we take trips to Trinidad and Tobago and New York to check out MAW a.k.a. Masters At Work, Puppah Nas-T, and Denise “Saucy Wow” Belfon’sWork“.

Produced by MAW (a.k.a. Kenny Dope and Little Louie Vega) and Puppah Nas-T and released through MAW Records and Tommy Boy Records, “Work” features Soca Artist Denise Belfon, who is the lead vocalist on the track. Listeners would be invited a showcase of double entendres as Denise is need of someone who would take their “broom” to “sweep her yard” with emphasis on “put yuh back in it“, and “going downtown“. The song features a mix of House Music and Calypso sounds, which provides an enjoyable listen (a guilty pleasure for those who have a thing for double entendres and suggestive lyrics).

“Work” was a successful single for MAW, Puppah Nas-T, and Densie Belfon as the track charted high on the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart peaking at #7. “Work” was popular in various countries including the US, South Africa, Brazil, and various Caribbean countries including Trinidad and Tobago. “Work” would enjoy a long shelf life thanks to various remixes of the track done by Global Deejays and Danny Marquez, Theo Schwarz, Riffs and Rays, and others. A remix of “Work” done by DJ Flex and Equiknoxx in 2019 became a viral sensation on Social Media thanks to various wining videos made for it on TikTok, Twitter, and Instagram. On January 21, 2022, “Work” would be given more life again thanks to Dancehall Artist Shenseea, US Rapper Megan Thee Stallion, and US Producer Murda Beatz sampling it for the controversial single, “Lick. Where will “Work” find itself next?

THANK YOU MAW, PUPPAH NAS-T, AND DENISE BELFON FOR THIS CLASSIC!

Krys Evans Makes Her Dream A Reality With Sizzla Featured, “Over Everything”


There are some of us who believe in destiny, and making things happen. We may have visions, or we trust a higher power with our hopes and dreams, or we just put in the work to make them come true. Sometimes they manifest immediately, or they never happen, or they take a longer than usual time to unfold. For Queens, NY Recording Artist Krys Evans, she’s making her dreams a reality through her new single, “Over Everything“.

Produced by Dennis “Jah D” Fearon for JAHLEP Records, Krys Evans’ “Over Everything” single is a dream come true as she collaborates with one of her musical heroes, Reggae/Dancehall Icon Sizzla Kalonji. The song goes out to all the couples who have weathered many storms and faced numerous challenges, but are still strong together, inspiring others in the process. Krys and Sizzla share not only great vocals, but lyrics on what it takes for couples stay together, and making that relationship last. While many speak about “Relationship goals” on Social Media, it takes a lot of work, and two people who genuinely are about each other.

Growing up, I listened to a lot of Sizzla, and he has influenced the way I do music.” shared Krys Evans. “Years ago, I used to work as a Bartender at BB Kings (in New York), and Sizzla was a featured act one night. Although his appearance wasn’t during my shift, I traded shifts with a coworker just to witness his performance while I worked. Fast forward a few years, I had this song, and it needed a male Artist who would take it to the next level. In my head, I wanted Sizzla to be that guest feature, and I wasn’t gonna let this song go until it happened. We made it happen however, and it’s a blessing! I’m eternally grateful to Sizzla Kalonji and his team.” “Over Everything” is Krys’ first release since her debut album, “Resilient” in 2020, and will be following up the single with a music video in the coming weeks. A Dancehall single titled, “Get The Money” is set to follow the single later this year. Keep working on your dreams.
