OLDIES SUNDAY: Andru Donalds – Mishale (1994)


Today’s Sunday, and that means it’s another “Oldies Sunday“! for today’s selection, we go back to the year 1994 and check out Andru Donalds’Mishale“! Produced by Eric Foster White, this was released through Metro Blue Records (a subsidiary of Capitol Records), and song finds Andru expressing how much he misses this woman despite breaking her heart, and the pain he feels for being separated from her. With a unique sound, this Reggae track that was made for International airplay. The song was featured on Andru Donalds’ self titled debut album which was released in 1994.

(Editor’s note: I remember when the video for this premiered on Jamaica’s “Entertainment Report”, and became a fixture on local TV for a while.)

“Mishale” became a hit for Donalds as it received a great amount of radio play in Jamaica, and made it to #38 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The single was also remixed by Ben Chapman, Eric Kupper and Richie Jones, and Luv Dup. Since “Mishale”, Donalds has went on to release 5 more albums including a “Best of” in 2006, found a couple more hits, got his music featured in two Films (Good Will Hunting and Barefoot), and became a lead Singer in the German musical project, Enigma. He is currently touring and spreading the music all over the world, and you can check for his next performance on his website.

(Editor’s note 2: I think he also recorded for a D&G Malta commercial too. I could be wrong.)

OLDIES SUNDAY: A.J. Brown – All Fall Down (1987)


It’s Sunday, and there’s something we’ve missed, and that is “Oldies Sunday“! Today’s selection comes from the legendary A.J. Brown a.k.a. “The Voice Of Jamaica“! Going back to the year 1987, we check out “All Fall Down“. Produced by Peter Ashbourne and released by Busy Bee Records, A.J. gave listeners a funky number in the 2nd half of the 80’s. In the song, A.J. lets a young lady know that despite being involved with other peoples and doing all sort of activities, he knows the way to her heart every time. While she can live in a make believe world, she lets down her guard when he’s around. The song was included in A.J.’s 1988 album, “Rhyme Or Reason“.

“All Fall Down” became one of A.J.’s hits, and he quickly became an Artist to watch. The single became so popular that it was featured on the soundtracks to “The Howling Pt. 3” and “The Fourth Protocol” movies. Since then, A.J. went on to deliver more hits, collaborated/performed with some of the biggest artists out there, lent his voice to various commercials and campaigns, and was also a Judge on Digicel’s Rising Stars competition. He is also the Lead Vocalist for Reggae Band Third World replacing the late William “Bunny Rugs” Clarke.
