.@ChrisMalachi Brings Friends Together For A Massive Team Jamaica Tribute On “We Move”!


Recently, the world got to see some of the best Athletes compete at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. In true fashion, members of Team Jamaica represented well regardless if they medalled or not. If you follow music closely in Jamaica, you know that tributes to the Athletes would be on the way. First at the finish line with one is Recording Artist Chris Malachi, and a bunch of his friends for the track, “We Move“.

Produced by Yo Christon and Chris Malachi, “We Move” also features Blvk H3ro, Naomi Cowan, Diel, Yung Ras, Ras-I, Kxng Izem, Royal Blu, Zhayna, and Monifa Goss who all delivered well for an epic tribute. We know this track will inspire many other tributes, and we will celebrate them like we did our Athletes in the past few weeks. We’ve seen many who were counted out become Medalists, years old records being broken, confidence through the roof for many, and despite some having setbacks, they’ll return to the track with a lot more determination in Paris 2024. What was/were your favourite Tokyo 2020 moments? Give “We Move” the Gold Medal!

Jaz Elise definitely made some noise in 2018. Having made her debut on the scene with the singles “Forever Guide” and “For You“, she has brought a vibe that made everyone rock wherever she goes. From performing at “Jam We A Jam” and being called up by Lila Ike at “Live From KGN”, 2019 will find Jaz everywhere.

15 Artists To Watch Out For In Summer 2017!


It’s another Summer, and it’s time for the Pool Parties, new fashion, new destinations, and for those in School, freedom from the books for a while. For others, it’s a time to discover new music, and we’ll gladly help you in discovering new Artists. We advise you to get proper headphones, great speakers, money for tickets and audio purchases, and the mindset to fully enjoy the music. Here are 15 Artists to watch out for this Summer!

*These Artists are not ranked in any way

1. Khxos

With a few years in the game, Florida based Recording Artist Khxos (formerly Khaos) has been releasing Dancehall tunes and gaining attention thanks to Social Media. He received a buzz that started to bubble in Summer 2015 thanks to the release of “One Touch”. Summer 2016 kept the ball rolling with his debut EP “Deception”, but collaborations with Andrew Trabass, Chargii, and Lincoln 3Dot helped to keep it blazing for the rest of the year. Early 2017 however saw his name change, and the release of “So Loud” and “BOMM” propelled him as one to watch this Summer as he prepares to release his debut Album, “Dopamine”.

2. Royal Blu

They don’t call him “El Fuego” for nothing, his music keeps you on your toes, and his lyrics hit like the hot oil from frying Plantains. This Artist has been quietly making his way onto the scene and has made appearances from “New Wave” to “Live From Kingston: Class 2016”, to “Imprint” to Protoje’s “For The Culture” event. His collaborations with the likes of Lila Ike, Runkus, and Leno Banton have received numerous hits on Soundcloud, and he hits the road (or Air) with Runkus as a part of the “Class Is In” European Tour and a stop at the German Summerjam this Summer!

3. Yanah

REVIEW: @Protoje’s “For The Culture” Event + Highlights


The Hope Gardens Shell Bandstand served as the perfect backdrop to showcase some of Reggae’s young royals to an eager audience of Locals and Tourists all with one thing in common…a love for the Culture. I personally gave up on Music in Jamaica until I came across these new school of Reggae Royals who through their socially conscious offerings, give honour to the many men and women who preceded them in the genre…

The gates opened at 7:30 Pm and the DJ for the night Yaadcore kept the early patrons entertained on the turntables, and DJ Jimmy Q of NewsTalk 93 FM handled hosting duties. By 9 Pm, the venue was almost full and the show kicked off with the opening act Sevana. Featuring cuts off her Sevana EP and even debuting a new song and a remix to Protoje’s “Love Gone Cold” (she was featured on the original), she had the audience mesmerized as she belted out tune after tune. I still refused to believe she did all that on a sore throat (Editor’s Note: She’s my Hero!!). By the time ZJ Sparks gave Protoje & The Indiggnation the greatest introduction ever, the venue was packed with patrons who were eager to sing and dance along with them.
