In a world where “Love” as a word has lost some meaning, and as an action done for all the wrong reasons, one may be curious to know how they can love like the old couples back in the day. Enter Rhiya Luna who yearns for that kind of love in her latest single, “Ancient Love“. Produced by Slaybad Musiq and Nuh Response Production, Rhiya dreams of having that old school love where proper etiquette and mannerisms were displayed, dates that weren’t interrupted by modern devices and situations, and long walks in the night filled with great conversations. She also mentioned running away to elope, but that still happens (lol). If you’re feeling just like her, give this song a listen. If you’re curious about that old school love, talk to the OG couples out there and learn something. Check out Rhiya’s latest below!
With Valentine’s Day only a few hours away, many are looking forward to a few hours with that special someone. What about those who want to be sneaky and deceitful? Anna Mariah’s new video will make you think twice as she does not play. With her crew ready for anything, Anna Mariah drops “Don’t Play With My Heart“! Directed by LEB Studios, we see the story of a couple who are as loving as they can be, but one partner wasn’t being loyal throughout, and it ends where he faces the consequences of his actions in a very big way. Suitors beware, Anna is not here for the games, so you better come correct or leave her alone. Anna Mariah has been grinding in the past couple years, and we expect to see more of her in 2018. Watch the video below!
It’s about that time when couples wear matching red and white outfits, Flowers and Chocolate are bought, corny love lines are sent out, and every other Hotel is booked. Valentine’s Day is near, and you know the music will be showing up. Singer Tamika J is one of those Artists you’ll be hearing with her latest offering, “What’s Mine“. Teaming up with Kris Karz for Kngly Studios, we get a smooth tune about wanting the love and affection of that person you’re glad to say is yours. With Tamika’s vocals, don’t be surprised by the goosebumps, and the feeling like she’s singing directly to you. The song is a part of a roll out from Kris Karz as he looks to release more singles he has produced later this year, and kick off a new season of “Kngly Live” which is currently in production. Cover design by Sarkastik Ambassador and Hi Jae. Needing that dose of loving? I’ll show you how I do my thing. Happy Knglytine’s Day. Check out the track below.
Fame is a helluva drug, and it comes at a high price. While many wish to reach that larger than life level, sometimes it costs friendships, family, and even morals. Many who have done everything to achieve fame later regretted it. Tonight we’re not gonna get too preachy, it’s all about the music coming from Jamaican born, Bronx based, Hood Celebrityy. Grabbing the reigns of French Montana’s “Famous“, she tackles it with her blend of Dancehall/Hip Hop. Highlighting how people treat you when you’re famous, she adds that they’ll never love you as well as those who genuinely care for you. The track was produced by Rico Love, DTownThaGreat, and DanjaHandz, and the original is featured on French’s “Jungle Rules” Album. Previewed earlier on a few Radio stations locally and overseas, it was met with mostly positive reviews. Fame can really change a person, stay home with me. Check out the “Walking Trophy” Hood Celebrityy’s “Famous Remix” below!
DJ/Producer Calvin Harris is readying the release of the follow up to his successful “Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1“! This new project promises to bring even more hits for you to groove to. Setting off the roll out with him is PARTYNEXTDOOR with the single, “Nuh Ready Nuh Ready“. Featuring PARTY channeling some of his Jamaican side, he breaks out the patois while dishing lyrics about not settling down, not being ready to have a family, and enjoying the offerings from the bachelor life. Too too sweet. With production that gets you moving, and a video to match, how are you feeling it so far? Stay strapped up, and watch below!
February 6 marks the day two Reggae legends were born, Bob Marley, and Bunny Rugs. Bob Marley started out in Trench Town, and became a larger than life Icon while Bunny Rugs made his mark as a Solo Artist, and Lead Vocalist for one of Reggae’s most successful Bands, Third World. While many pay respects to them today, we’d like to look back at a few songs that further immortalized them through samples. Samples will come from Bob Marley’s solo singles, or with The Wailers, and from Third World Band during Rugs’ time. Enjoy!
