Toppy Boss Brings His “Yard” To The 876!


Trinidadian Dancehall Artist Toppy Boss has been putting in the work to become one of the top names out of the emerging crop of “Trinibad” Artists. Having secured a great following with a selection of tracks and visual content, he has taken his brand to various parts of the world, and has been consistent with the output. With his latest single, “Yard”, he finds it taking off in the home of Dancehall, Jamaica.

Released through Restricted Records, Toppy Boss steps out with an energetic sound, and a unique delivery on “Yard”. The sexually charged single has been a hit in Trinidad and parts of the Caribbean, but it has taken on a new life in Jamaica. Since its release in June, it has been receiving a wave of support from the 876 thanks to social media and radio. From dance videos on Instagram and TikTok to Dancehall selectors showing it a lot of love on their various mix shows, “Yard” is easily a hit for Toppy Boss in 2021. In support of the single, a music video was released. Directed by Propper Stuff Productions (PSP), the dance heavy visual quickly gained thousands of views on Youtube, in addition to the thousands of streams it has received so far. Inspired by the love he has received from Jamaica for “Yard”, he plans to follow up with collaborations with prominent Jamaican Dancehall Artists in the coming months.

Born in Trinidad and Tobago, Toppy Boss is a Dancehall/Trinibad Artist signed to American based Restricted Records. An active Artist since 2018, he quickly created a buzz locally and internationally with tracks like, “24/7”, “In Charge”, “Titanic”, “King”, and “We Bad” featuring Dancehall Artist Magic. With a strong work ethic, and a steadily growing fanbase, Toppy Boss looks to connect with more people around the world, create timeless music, and do his part in preserving the Caribbean music culture.

A Relationship Goes Through A lot In @SarkAmbassador & @MissRheaDawn’s “Toxic” Video


A couple months ago, Trini Artist Sarkastik Ambassador and Bajan star Rhea Layne gave us a demo of a track they were working on called, “Toxic. It tackled some of the issues that affect relationships, and many people could relate to the song. Fast forward to the present day, we’re proud to show you the music video for the officially released track.

Directed by Sarkastik Ambassador and starring Nicholas C. Subero and Ruby Parris (related to Paul Parris of The Parris Agency who manages Jus D?), “Toxic” is brought to life showcasing an estranged couple who struggle through moments of tension, restriction, passion and emotional intimacy in just one day of quarantining together. Many relationships have taken a dive in recent months, and the pandemic hasn’t been making things easier for some of us mentally. When this couple isn’t distancing themselves from each other, they’re arguing, but in the end they find themselves getting closer. Hang in there guys, it’s rough out there, and seek help when you can.

“Uncrowned Queens” To Provide Entertainment During The Pandemic


Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, Dr. Keith Rowley’s October 2020 announcement that, “Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago in 2021 is not on” has not stopped local artistes and Carnival stakeholders from keeping the culture and festivities of the season alive. Among them stands Warrior Empress, who, in collaboration with Music Mill Studios will present Uncrowned QUEENS – a virtual musical concert featuring some of Trinidad and Tobago’s most promising Female Calypsonians; this event will be live streamed via YouTube from 8PM (AST) on Friday 5th February 2021.

No stranger to the Calypso arena herself, Warrior Empress (whose birth name is Allison Bernard) has been singing professionally for the past fourteen (14) years. She sang out of the Kalypso Revue from 2015 to 2019, was finalist in The NWAC Calypso Queen Monarch Competition from 2010 to 2019 – placing 2nd on two (2) occasions 3rd on another, and was also the First  Reserve at The National Calypso Monarch Finals in 2019 with her own composition ‘The You in You.”

Showing her true warrior spirit, Bernard is not one to retreat when faced with challenges. In a statement to the media Bernard said she was inspired to produce this show “on the heels of one of the governing body for the Carnival stating that they would not be holding any [Carnival related] activities… not even virtually.” With three (3) successfully produced online events under her belt: With Women In Mind’ – a Mother’s Day Concert in May 2020, ‘Vocals and Steel’ – a Father’s Day Concert in June 2020, and ‘Rise Up’ – an Emancipation Concert in July 2020, in addition to an ongoing, online weekly talk show entitled “The Feminine Drive” Bernard saw this statement as an opportunity to innovate, and “keep the spirit of Carnival alive in a new way”.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Singing Sandra – Die With My Dignity (1987)


Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from the late Sandra DesVignes-Millington a.k.a. Singing Sandra. Today we go back to the 1980s with her track, “Die With My Dignity” a.k.a. “Sexy Employees“.

Written by Ortniel Bacchus with production and distribution by M&M Records in 1987, the track finds Singing Sandra sharing the challenges women face on the Island when it comes to finding employment. She shares the episodes where Employers try to take advantage of women in the workplace by sexually harassing and exploiting them for monetary gains. Singing Sandra puts her foot down as she’s not welcoming their advances, and would rather go elsewhere than to discard her morals and values for gains of any kind. Sadly this is what’s going on in workplaces around the world where gender inequality is concerned, and with the #MeToo Movement on the rise in the past few years, many men are facing the other side of the Law for their crimes.

Singing Sandra’s “Die With My Dignity” became a part of history as it helped her to win the titles of “National Calypso Queen” in Trinidad, and the “St. Maarten Queen Of The World“. The song would be later featured on the “Rising Stars ’87” album, and became one of Singing Sandra’s signature tunes. Since “Die With My Dignity”, she went on to become the second woman to ever win the Calypso Monarch title in 1999 after Calypso Rose. With another title win in 2003, she became the first woman to do it twice. One of the pioneers in Calypso industry, she paved the way for more female voices to emerge in a predominantly male scene. She continued to make music and seal her place as a Caribbean Icon until her passing on January 28, 2021. We remember her with this Oldies Sunday selection.

THANK YOU SINGING SANDRA!
