First off, Happy 30th Birthday to the “Unruly Boss“, Popcaan! With his album “Forever” blessing the Internet tomorrow, we’re showing love to a few of his International collaborations over the years in our latest Playlist titled “Popcaan Airways“. Popcaan has managed to build a name for himself during his role as a member of Vybz Kartel’s “Portmore Empire“, and has brought his “Unruly” brand to places many aspire to be. From Jamaica to Toronto to London to Tokyo to Lagos, follow the “Unruly” tracks. Check out the Playlist below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Today marks the 45th Birthday of the one they call “Gargamel“, Mark “Buju Banton” Myrie! While the word is he’ll be a free man by the end of the year, we still celebrate him as if he’s already here. His music has touched the lives of many over the years, and many have shown respect in the form of covers, tribute songs, and by sampling him. Today, we feature a few songs that have sampled him. #FREEBUJU! Check them out below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Happy Sunday folks! Hope you all are doing well. If you’re a regular customer of Netflix, then you’re aware that the latest season of Marvel Comics’ “Luke Cage” is here! This season gets pretty interesting as one of the season’s Antagonists, “Bushmaster“, has a Jamaican background. While we’re pretty excited about it (the terrible accents however, no no no…), we’re even more excited that a few classic Reggae songs can be heard throughout the 13 episodes.
Today, we present to you the songs that were featured in our latest Spotify Playlist! Enjoy hits from Bob Marley, Ini Kamoze, Gregory Isaacs, and many more! Stay here for the music, but you can Netflix & chill with “Luke Cage”: Season 2 later. Congrats to Jamaican Actor Desmond Dennis on being a part of the cast.

Don’t worry about a thing. Recently, Automotive brand Hyundai announced their sponsorship of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and a campaign followed shortly. Recruiting US Band Maroon 5, they released a Commercial that had them covering one of the legendary Reggae Artist Bob Marley’s biggest hits, “Three Little Birds“. The song was released in 1977 as track 4 on Bob Marley & The Wailers’ “Exodus” album, and in 1980 as a single. This is the second time the song has been used in a campaign for Hyundai as it was performed by Stephen Marley and Jason Bentley in 2013. The song has enjoyed numerous covers over the years, and features in various films, ads, and soundtracks for sports teams.
Enjoy the World Cup, every little thing’s gonna be alright! Check out the Commercial and track below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Earlier this year, US Pop Artist Christina Aguilera announced her 8th studio album, “Liberation“. With a couple singles out, fans were looking forward to what the songbird had in store as she found herself staying busy with other activities in recent years. On the album, she found herself collaborating with Reggae Artist Keida, and Dancehall Artist Shenseea on the track, “Right Moves“! Produced by Che Pope, Bryan “Composer” Nelson, and Marcos “Kosine” Palacios, the 3 ladies have their eyes on the men who know how to woo and seduce them with all the right moves. From having chills running up their spines, to having their bodies explored like iPhone apps, the men have to come correct when it’s time to get down. A great combination of Reggae, Dancehall, and Pop on this one, and a unique addition to Aguilera’s project. How did Makeida, Christina, and Chinsea do? “Liberation” is available on all streaming platforms, but you can check out the track below. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
