GET TO KNOW: @TheRoyalBlu


Creating an International appeal through the use of the social Inter web, the 13th Street Promo team took great pleasure in sitting and working with Royal Blu (Formerly “BluKid”) as one of its most incredible Interviews to date. After creating the right setting with Blvk H3ro and Leno Banton, it was only natural that we moved directly ahead to work directly with one of Jamaica’s budding prodigies. Let’s Begin…

13thStreetPromotions: Where does your talent come from? It resonates well with fans from what we’ve observed.

TheRoyalBlu: I’m the only one in my family that does music. The only one that I know of. So I’d like to believe that my talent is a direct gift from God. I’m just blessed to have people truly appreciate what I do.

13thSP: Have you gone through any voice training as an artiste?

TheRB:  Yeah, I’ve done voice training up at Avant Acadamy of Music. Big up to Andrew Dixon for being my instructor. Although I skipped their end of year concert that they wanted me to perform at (haha). But yeah, apart from that, I just do my own personal warm-ups and stuff when I can.

@TheRoyalBlu vs @ToryLanez vs @Drake vs @PopcaanMusic: The “Controlla” Battle!


You couldn’t deny the “Controlla” single in 2016. From what started as a leak has become a single that blew up everywhere! Created by Drake (duh!), this was a single to boost the anticipation of his 4th album, “Views”. Of course when it comes to hit songs, there will be remixes, covers, and clones (lol Tyga). While we won’t get into the other story/controversy with “Controlla” (maybe next time, Mr. Vegas), we’ll recruit 4 very popular versions in a Battle Royale! Up for Battle are Drake (Original), Popcaan (Featured on leak/suggested to be a Remix although edited versions created waves), Royal Blu (Who garnered an underground following for his version), and Tory Lanez (Who has recently revealed his own Canadian/Jamaican Dancehall styled version). Voting for the tracks are below, let’s get ready to battle!

NEW MUSIC: @TheRoyalBlu – Jus Bill


Today I bring to you a musical selection from the one they call “El Fuego” a.k.a. Royal Blu. Titled “Jus Bill” and produced by J.L.L., we hear Blu flexing his lyrics and flows on a very laid back Jazzy Ella Fitzgerald sampled Production that will provide the soundtrack to you hopping in the car and taking that long cruise on the highway, or have you blasting it on the top of the highest elevation you have access to. Expect bouts of doing the “Dab” throughout the song, some “pull up” moments, and lots more feel good moments. This is what it sounds like when the sky is clear! Off his “Fuego Fridays” series, take a listen to the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
