If you were a reader of our “15 Artists To Watch Out For In Summer 2017” post, you would’ve come across an Artist by the name of Shie. Though she took a break from music, she’s back on the scene and has since released a couple songs. To close off 2017 however, she has gone through a name change, and will be now known as “Rhiya Luna“. Her first offering with the new name is titled, “Sweetest Love“! Produced by VanClive of Street Fame Records, she took a break from the Dancehall vibes as she lets us know that she needs love, and can offer the best kind in return. It is a different sound coming from her, and there’s no telling what’s next from her and she likes to be unpredictable. Something for the lovers out there, and an addition to the “Love” playlists for this holiday season, and next year. How deep is your love for me? Check out the track below!
Seasons Greetings! On today’s Oldies Sunday, we head on over to the twin Islands of Trinidad & Tobago for some Parang! For those who aren’t familiar, this is a genre of music originated from T&T and Venezuela that is normally played around Christmas time with some songs referring to elements of it including the birth of Jesus Christ. Today’s selection comes from the “Queen of Parang“, the late Daisy Voisin with “Alegría, Alegría“. Produced by Arnold Shuffler and released through RH Productions in 1981, this song is about the birth of Jesus and his role as saviour. The single was featured on her album “Parang Queen” and has been one of her most notable songs. While sung in Spanish, we’ll give you the English version below. We hope you enjoyed our selection, and we encourage you to tune in next Sunday for another! Live on, Queen Daisy Voisin!
Comedian/Youtuber/Actress/Singer/Model Bella Blair hasn’t been slowing down at all. With her appearances on and offline, she has been working to put her brand on a bigger platform.

Dropping new music is emerging Recording Artist, Riki Simmonds! Bringing a new flavour to the scene, she’s definitely an Artist to watch out for. Today she makes “waves” with “Waterfalls“! Produced by Troy Baker of Geejam Records, Riki speaks about someone who has captured her attention, and makes her go from having her head in the clouds, to coming down like a Waterfall! It’s like that sometimes (lol). Blending a mix of Dancehall, Soul, R&B, and Afrobeat with her unique lyrics, we believe she will be making a lot more noise in 2018! Has anyone ever made you feel like how Riki is feeling in this song? Let us know! Check out the track below.
Bringing in some vibes today are Colombian Recording Artist Andy Rivera, and Panamanian Recording Artist Joey Montana! Today they spread some love in the form of their latest music video, “Enamorarte (Fall In Love)“. Directed by Dayme y El High, the Artists sing about falling in love and valuing the person they love, while we see two persons making plans for a get together throughout the day. Be sure to watch to the end for a surprise. Great visuals, and a song that you can vibe to.
