Have a sweet tooth? Need a sugar rush? Then we’re here to deliver you the goods to fix the cravings. After travelling far and near, we finally get the visual for Naomi Cowan’s super catchy single, “Paradise Plum“! Directed by Kia Moses and shot on Fleet Street and Life Yard in Kingston, Naomi hops on her funky Bicycle and cruises through the street and sprinkles that lovely song for everyone to hear. You can catch a few familiar faces along her journey like Black H3ro, Osunya Rose, Lindsey Lodenquai, and be treated to some pieces of Fashion from Tia Clothes Girl, YC, and Those Creative People. Since the first time we heard this Teflon Zincfence produced track, we knew it would’ve been a hit, and give us a few cavities. Get yourself a “Hot Gyal” fan after watching this hot video. Corporate Jamaica, it’s not too late to get this song in your campaigns. If you’re new to Naomi, we featured her as one of the female Artists you should have on your radar this year.

Earlier this year we featured this young lady as one of the female acts to look out for this year. With “Things You Say You Love” getting favourable spins currently, Naomi Cowan gives us more with a sweet treat titled “Paradise Plum“. Produced by Teflon ZincFence, Naomi gives us a song that many women in relationships can relate with. A blend of old school Lover’s Rock along with some samples and some of that Reggae Pop, try not to get too many cavities after listening to this one.
When asked about expectations about the single, Naomi shared, “My hope for this song is that it transcends boundaries. Everyone deserves that sweet, authentic, Paradise Plum type of love.“

You call them when you want to want a fire beat to go with your lyrics, they help you turn that song into the greatest thing someone has ever heard, they spend hours creating a masterpiece that sounds so good you’re not allowed to add your vocals to it. They are called Beatmakers, Riddim Gods, and more commonly, Producers! Artists can’t live without these people, and at times they don’t get a lot of respect. We at 13th Street Promotions recognize these creatives, and today you’ll get to know 15. Watch this space!
*These Producers are not ranked in any way.
1. Wavy Jones
Wavy Jones is a play on the name “Davy Jones”, but he also owns a locker filled with some dope beats! Whether flipping samples on “Locker 1 & 2” or dropping the bass on the Jeeby Lyricist, Blvk H3ro and Kione Zaire featured “100LBS”, Jones is a Producer to check for! Catch him on the next Hidden Fvces or Alpine Compound project!
Whether playing guitar as a part of “Di Vibe” or crafting beats, Kone (Koh Neh) should not be taken lightly. Having produced newcomer Yanah’s single, “The Cycle” and her “Believe In You” Freestyle, delivered the right Riddim with fellow Producer BoomDraw for Blvk H3ro & Leno Banton’s “Sky Dive”, expect to hear more of this creative this year!
3. Teflon Zincfence
He doesn’t call himself a “Riddim God” for nothing. You’ve enjoyed many of his productions that have been complimented with the vocals of Jamar McNaughton, and he has an arsenal ready to go toe to toe with the best of Producers. Having recently released the “Dub Policy EP”, he’s busy preparing his compilation project titled “Top Works Vol. 1” which will feature his ZincFence Records members Ulo, Jane Macgizmo, and Inezi. You can also hear his work on Chronixx’s “Chronology” album. Get familiar!
