The world is crazy right now. Everyday there’s a news item about conflict. It’s pretty draining with the barrage of bad news, and we need an escape. While we can’t provide a physical solution at the moment, how about a visual to put your mind at ease for a bit? Enter Recording Artist Ras-I with the music video for his much loved single, “Somewhere Wonderful“!
Directed by Create With ALT, Ras-I plays a Tour Guide as he gives viewers some great scenery and locations in Jamaica that will make you want to disappear to right now. While he delivers his hit single very well, the visuals will have you feeling like you’re in a Tourism Ad. The Jamaica Tourist Board is dropping the ball on using this song, so if there is any other Island who is interested in using this song for a campaign, make the connections and opportunities happen expeditiously. Ras-I has been putting out singles that quickly connect with the listeners, and you can expect him to thrill you even more this year with new content and live performances.

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 ArtistChris 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!

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!
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”.
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!
This Songstress came as a surprise this year with the release of her debut single, “So Shy”. Known as “The First Lady Of REM”, she followed up with a freestyle (Believe In You), and a follow up single titled “The Cycle”. She has also made appearances on “Smile Jamaica”, “New Wave”, “Speak”, and “7 am In Kingston”. Yanah is currently working follow up singles, and makes an appearance near you this Summer!
