@TheReleaseJA Encourages Young Innovators

The Release Television Programme will be hosting their Community College Tour geared towards encouraging young Innovators. The Tour will feature “The Release Innovation Challenge (TRIC)” which is a challenge for students and staff to showcase and be awarded for their innovation in Technology, Music, Food and Fashion.

The Tour is expected to educate and promote the benefits of inventing; encourage Entrepreneurship among students and to promote sportsmanship among peers through in-school Innovation challenges. Executive Producer and Host for The Release, Talisa Taylor said, “Last year we did a Social ME-dia: Release Responsibly Tour that spoke to the use of Social Media among High School students so this year we decided to promote a different message through encouraging creativity and further awarding it”.

The Tour is set to begin in October and will visit schools such as College of Agriculture Science and Education (C.A.S.E.), Excelsior Community College, Knox Community College, Moneague Community College, Montego Bay Community College, Bethlehem Moravian College, Brown’s Town Community College, and Portmore Community College. Joseph Moore, another Executive Producer of The Release said, “We believe in promoting positivity so The Release will continue to share social messages that can influence our target audience”.

The Tour is sponsored by JUTC and Alternative Music will include a Celebrity judging panel, seminars from different groups on improving Inventions, capitalizing on them and a concert featuring student performers and guest Artists. Students or staff interested in the Tour can follow The Release on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more Information (@TheReleaseja), or call 833-5444.

Fans Praise @QQWorld’s New Sound With His Latest Single

Fans have been adjusting to a smoother side of QQ with the recent release of “I Like It“. The single, produced by College Boiz Productions and QQ Music, is different from QQ’s more upbeat singles such as “One Drop“, “Jack Hammer” and “Kushi Wine” to name a few.

The Artist who has been absent from the Jamaican Dancehall scene for a while, has been performing on several major stages in the United States and Europe. “I want to show a different side to my music but whether i’m singing or deejaying, I am all about pleasing my female fans” shared QQ. The single is featured on the “Precious Seeds Riddim”, and has been receiving a favourable response from fans worldwide. The “One Drop” star is set to perform in Guyana in October, and Barcelona, Spain in November.

QQ has several new projects in the works, and is back in Jamaica to shoot music videos related to them. He added, “My last video was for “Kushi Wine”, but people still talk about my video for “Tweety Bird” directed by Strugu Films that was shot overseas”. “I Like It” is available for purchase on several digital platforms. QQ can be followed on Facebook.com/qquniverse, Instagram, and Twitter at @qqworld.

Dancehall Artist Sol Weatherman Goes Viral, Promotes “Handcart”

With several controversies surrounding Dancehall music videos, upcoming Dancehall Artist Sol Weatherman is now victim to a candid video gone viral. The video shows the Artist singing his recent single, “Handcart”, with what appears to be an M-16 Rifle in hand. More recently, another video surfaced with the Artist riding a donkey at the popular Street Dance “Wappingz Thursday”.

“Handcart” was produced by Krayv and Jay Crazie Records on the “Car Tire Riddim”, and is described by Sol Weatherman as a “Hustler’s Anthem”. “The video was simply me chilling in my community and during that someone recorded the video and posted it online. I don’t encourage violence, “Handcart” is a song for the Hustlers and hard working people, it is not a violent song”. When asked about the riding on the Donkey, Sol
added, “I believe in promoting my single to the fullest so the video was just another way to market the single for me”.

“Handcart” has been garnering much attention from the streets since its release. Sol added, “In many of the Street Dances you can witness girls pushing Handcarts and dancing. People all over the world love the gimmicks that come with the song, and I am grateful for that”. Sol Weatherman hails from Cockburn Gardens in Kingston, and is known for the singles, “Weatherman”, “Feel So Good”, and “Whine” to name a few. You can find him on Instagram at @SolWeatherman, and WeathermanSol on Facebook.

@PoshMuzik Is Back On The Music Scene With “Horse Tonic”!

2009 Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall breakout contestant Posh Morris, more popularly known as “Posh”, is back on the music scene with her new single, ‘Horse Tonic’. The female Deejay, remembered for her versatility in the clash ring, recorded the song on the ‘Horse Tonic Riddim’ produced by ZJ Dymond. The highly energetic single shows off Posh Morris’ lyrical prowess as a female Artist and her aggressive approach to Dancehall music.

The ‘Horse Tonic’ Artist who hails from Portmore, Saint Catherine said, “This song is very powerful and this is just the start of what I consider to be a takeover. I have been quiet for some time now and I hear a lot of talk about female Artists sitting back, so it’s my time now to step out”. Posh Morris who is known for singles such as ‘Take What’s Mine’ and ‘Rock The Party’ ,earned herself a Youth View Awards nomination earlier this year for “Director of the Year” landing her in the minds of her colleagues as a double threat. She added, “The road doesn’t just stop for me when the song is mixed, it’s about having the visuals to complement it and as a woman in music, I pride myself in being able to deejay, produce and direct videos”.

Posh Morris has now started working on the video for the single which she promises to be ‘creative’ and ‘unique’ adding that she wants to bring the “same vibe from the song to the video”. She is also working on a second project with ZJ Dymond which she describes as ‘head turning’. Now on the promotional trail, she has started media runs in Jamaica and has since been receiving great reviews.
