.@ItsToian Featured On @SpiderVerse Soundtrack With @MetroBoomin, @RedRatMusic Classic Gets Sampled

Dancehall-Pop Recording Artist Toian has been on the grind. Been a while since we featured her, but she has been putting the work behind the scenes. Based in Miami, she secured a number of collaborations, and released a project or two. Remember her Ice Queen” collab with Vybz Kartel? “Ride The Wave“? What about “Rude Boys“? Her name has been called up recently in what you could call one of her biggest career moves, and that’s making the connection with SuperProducer Metro Boomin, and the highly anticipated “Spider-Man: Across The Spider-VerseFilm.

Teaming up with WizKid, Beam, Don Toliver, and Metro Boomin, Toian jumped on the “Spider-Verse Remix” of “Link Up“. With a mix of Pop, Afrobeats, and Red Rat’sTight Up Skirt” sample, Toian’s here for the link up, but don’t catch no feelings. She fits well with her collaborators, bringing her sweet vocals, making for a nice addition to the featured production. Red Rat’s “Tight Up Skirt” was released in 1997 and produced by Buccaneer on the Opera House label, and was famously sampled by Samantha J. Expect a lot more from Toian in the future, maybe she’ll pop up on more collabs with your favourite Artists, or even have more of her music featured in Films. Congrats to the big Singer!

.@JimmyCliff’s “Many Rivers To Cross” Featured In @TheEqualizerCBS Season Finale

The Equalizer” is an action TV series that focuses on Robyn McCall, who lives life as a single Mother, but has a mysterious side where she uses her extensive range of skills to help people out of various situations. The series stars Queen Latifah and Lorraine Toussaint, and is aired weekly on CBS. It’s inspired by the movie trilogy of the same name that stars Denzel Washington, and is a reboot of the 1980s TV series. This series is in its 3rd season, and during their latest episode, a familiar Reggae classic was featured.

In the season 3 finale of “The Equalizer” titled “Patriot Game“, Jimmy Cliff’sMany Rivers To Cross” closed off the episode. Co-Produced with Leslie Kong, the song was released in 1969 through Trojan Records. The ballad was written at a time Cliff was having difficulty in becoming a successful Musician in the UK, and it brought a lot of frustration within himself. The ballad was featured on his sophomore album “Jimmy Cliff” a.k.a. “Wonderful World, Beautiful People” and “The Harder They Come” soundtrack, and is one of Cliff’s biggest hits. “Many Rivers To Cross” was previously featured in the movie “Rush“, along with the TV shows “Daredevil“, “Wilfred“, and “Falling Skies“. The ballad was also covered by UB40, and Tessanne Chin during her time on “The Voice” in 2013.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Louisa Mark – Caught You In A Lie (1975)

In recognition of Women’s History Month, we take the time out to feature Women who have made great contributions to our music culture. While we celebrate the Women all year over here, we recognize some through our Oldies Sunday section. For today’s selection, we stop in London to check out the late Louisa “Markswoman” Mark and her track, “Caught You In A Lie“.

Produced by “Sir Coxsone” Dodd, “Caught You In A Lie” was released through Safari Records, and the Gussie label in 1975. The track was a cover of US Singer Robert Parker’s 1967 single, “I Caught You In A Lie“, and Louisa Mark owned it with beautiful vocals and delivery as she spoke about catching a cheating lover, and discovering what he was up to. The song was performed by a 15 year old Mark, who was a big winner at various talent shows, and was a result of  her first recording session which was given to her by Dodd. The song became an instant hit and was well loved by listeners in Europe and other parts of the world, and was considered the first Lovers Rock single.

Since the release of “Caught You In A Lie”, Louisa Mark followed up with a couple more hits, and released her only album “Breakout” in 1981 (“Caught You In A Lie” would be later added in a remastered version of the album). She enjoyed a career in the 80s that saw the release of some singles, but life happened, and she didn’t put out anymore music until 2004. Sadly she passed away in 2009, but she left her mark (no pun intended) on music with kicking off the official Lovers Rock movement.

Thank You Louisa Mark For This Classic!
