Don’t Have @Yanah_I Waiting In Limbo, So “Think Again” And Come Correct!


The summer is usually a time for some to kick off “Cuffing Season“, while others are free to do whatever, but some are still going through it as they’ve lost a lover. Yanah comes through with a song that may trigger some feelings in those in the latter. Teaming up with Kone, she drops “Think Again“! While it’s never easy when breakups happen, Yanah paints the picture of a couple where the young lady compares her love, emotions, and energy to data, and transferring them into her former partner’s life’s hard drive would be a part of their bond. She feels there’s still some connection as some hard drives are never fully erased. Her system is still being affected by traces of their bond, and she believes he’s affected too, despite them going their separate ways. A song that many can relate to, Yanah is just a vessel for many who are going through it. The song samples the classic “Queen Majesty” from Jamaican Recording Artist Pat Kelly while he was a member of The Techniques.

While Yanah has been handling life outside the Studio, she looks to make a few appearances in the coming weeks to treat your ears to some great music. She’s currently booked to appear at the upcoming Fi Di Culture Live event, and she has plans to release more music for the rest of the year.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Browne Bunch/Brownie – Blue Skies (1991)


It’s Wedding SZN! For the month of June, Oldies Sunday will feature some love songs that can be a great addition to your Wedding Playlists, and could be the official song to dance to. Today we look back at the 5 Brother group Browne Bunch (a.k.a. Brownie) and their single, “Blue Skies“! With them all handling production and released through the Island Treasure label in 1991, the brothers Danny, Glen, Cleveland, Dalton, and Noel delivered a dedication to that special someone, and letting them know that they are their life’s purpose. To have someone who knows every side of you, and to help you become a better person is truly a blessing, don’t take it for granted.

Starting out as a teen sibling music group in the 70’s like The Jackson 5 and The Sylvers, they had a short stint before disbanding later in the decade. Their paths in music after, though broad, always lead them back together. They’ve made attempts to regroup in 1983 and 2015, but scheduling conflicts have put a damper on things. Danny Browne went on to become a legendary Producer, founder of the Bloodfire Posse group and Mainstreet Records, and recently had his work sampled by the likes of Nicki Minaj (more on that here). Glen Browne has worked with Jimmy Cliff, Ziggy Marley, and Tarrus Riley and has become a legendary Bass Player. Cleveland Browne went on to become a legend himself as the other half of the production duo, “Steely & Clevie“, with an outstanding track record in Jamaican music. Noel Browne took his talents as a Keyboard Player to the UK, and has worked with many inlcuding the late Dennis Brown, Glen Washington, and Papa San. Dalton Browne has been the go to Guitarist for many, and has worked with Freddie McGregor as his Musical Director, and even worked with Akon on his album, “Konvicted”.

.@TheRoyalBlu Builds On His Star Power With @JLLProd Produced, “Hype”!


Slowing down is something that you can’t find rising Recording Artist Royal Blu doing anytime soon. While he has been making moves over recent years, 2019 has been very promising so far. Since we’ve featured him as an Artist to watch, he has been adding fuel to his “El Fuego” alias and dropping nothing but fire. While we finally got the long anticipated visual for Meanwhile” with Leno Banton, he fed his hunger for more by popping up on various collabs, and dropping the “Style and Pattern” single and video (which boasts an all Jamaican production and raises the bar). Today, he goes up a few levels with the new track, “Hype“! Produced by longtime collaborator J.L.L. and released through Delicious Vinyl Island, Royal Blu fixes his crown and gets at naysayers who throw the term “hype” to his name as he’s more of a “hype with substance” type of person, and stays true to himself and those who know him. Many have stepped in his way to downplay his talent and determination, but frankly they’re not in his league, and he strives for quality and all that comes with it.

It’s a case of the “Damned if you do, damned if you don’t“, but Royal Blu doesn’t make much bother him as he sings to his own tune, and creates dope things. With an EP on the way to follow up his “sinG with God” project, if you didn’t know him before, now you know! With artwork provided by Ikem Smith, just stay tuned to see what else Royal Blu has rolled up his sleeve. For now, check out the track below and share with a friend.
