Amidst all the madness in the US this week, R&B/Pop Artist Chris Brown released a new single. Titled “Questions” (Get It Here), this was produced by A1 and Prince Chrishan and is a part of the Singer’s 40 track “Heartbreak On A Full Moon” Album which will be released later this year. For this track, Chris has drawn inspiration from the Caribbean in not only the Production, but in the lyrics. More notably, the song samples Soca Artist Kevin Lyttle’s 2003 smash hit, “Turn Me On” (Get It Here)! Hailing from Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Kevin Lyttle garnered International stardom with the lead single off his self-titled Debut Album. The song, which was produced by RedOne and Nely on one version, and Adrian Bailey on another which featured Dancehall Artist Spragga Benz, was also a top 10 hit in 15 different countries, saw Gold and Platinum certifications worldwide, covered/remixed numerous times, and was even re-recorded in 2008 for his second Album featuring Soca Artist Alison Hinds.
With Rihanna making headlines recently during Cropover in Barbados, was this Chris’ reaction? Check out the tracks below.

There comes a time in a relationship where one party gets a lil bit comfortable, and forget a few key things that got the union going. It happens, but it’s up to them to make things right, or keep it moving. Today, US Pop Singer Bebe Rexha warns her lover to get it together or leave on “Comfortable“. Produced by Frank Dukes and features Dancehall Artist Kranium, the two Artists have a lovers’ quarrel where Bebe misses being catered to in different ways, while Kranium lets her know that he tries to do the right things, but the extra duties can’t come that often. While they talk it out, we are greeted with a fun Production that you can’t help but rock to. Score another hit as Kranium has been on a roll with the International collaborations. The single is off Bebe’s “All Your Fault Pt. 2″ EP (Get It Here) which drops tomorrow. Don’t get too comfortable, check out the track below.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard some Jane Macgizmo. Just when the thought comes up however, she pops up with a new single for your head top. Teaming up with Producer JLL and Teflon ZincFence, she delivers “Too Late“. If you’ve ever been caught up in some serious attraction to the wrong person, while the right one slips away, this for you. If you are in the “Friend Zone“, then you should keep this in your playlist. This Dancehall/Pop number sounds like a hit already with its very catchy hook, and compliments JLL and Teflon’s Production greatly. You can just picture yourself in the scenarios mentioned, or even recall one (and maybe face palm if you realized that you’ve lost the right one). Jane’s staying busy behind the scenes working on music with ZincFence Records, and aims to drop a full length project in 2018. Can’t wait to see a visual for this one. We hope it’s not too late for you to let that love blossom with someone, but it’s not too late to listen to this new Jane Macgizmo below!
“Too Late” is also available for purchase on Apple Music (Get It Here).
