OLDIES SUNDAY: Frankie Paul – Sara (1987) (R.I.P. Jamaican Stevie Wonder)


Today’s Oldies Sunday pays respect to one of Jamaica’s greatest Vocalists, the one they called the “Jamaican Stevie Wonder“, the late Frankie “Dancehall” Paul. The Singer recently passed away after battling a long ailment, and the news sent shock waves all over the world. Having been born blind, Frankie showed many that you can still be great no matter your circumstance. Possessing a love for singing, he impressed Recording Artist Stevie Wonder during a visit to his school in Jamaica, and was inspired to pursue a Music career. Releasing multiple singles and Albums over the years, Frankie went on to be an influence for many of the Dancehall/Reggae Vocalists that followed. Having worked with almost every Producer and Record Label in Jamaica, Frankie Paul was a household name and ultimately a Legend.

As a part of keeping his spirit alive, we present to you “Sara”, his 1987 hit which was a cover of US Rock Band Starship’s single. The track was produced by King Jammy for his Jammys Label and was a part of Paul’s 1987 “Live And Love” Album.

Walk Good, Frankie Paul!

We Look At @ItsJahmiel Vs @VershonMusic In “13th Street Rants” Debut!


13th Street Rants” is a new series on 13th Street Promotions (hopefully we have more after this) where we share commentary on various topics in Entertainment. In our debut episode, we speak on the current war of words with Dancehall Artists Jahmiel and Vershon. Is it necessary? We tend to think that beef is needed at all times, but that shouldn’t be the case. We think both Artists are amazing in their respective careers, but this beef? I don’t know how they’ll benefit in the long run. DJ Fusion takes the wheel in the debut clip below. Listen and share!
