If you don’t know by now, Complex Ricki is creative AF! With a singing style that has you within its clutches, she can also paint some works of Art, and strike a pose that some models may envy. She has been featured as a Female Artist You Need To Watch, and today, you have no choice but to pay attention as we feature a double dose of EPs from her. With “22 Captive” and “Free Space“, Complex Ricki flexes over various productions, tackles different topics, and gives us some smooth and soothing vocals. She might pull a Medusa on you and have you set in stone with the sound of her voice.
Armed with great vocals, Recording Artist Delando Colley has come a long way since his Digicel Rising Stars days as a Teenager. Having built his catalogue over the years, he has been working his way up to being one of the greats in Jamaican music. He continues his journey today with the release of his latest single, “Island Girl“! Produced by Dale “Dizzle” Virgo of DZL Records, Delando croons his way into the hearts of the Island girls whether they’re from Jamaica, Trinidad, St. Lucia, or even Haiti. He makes it clear that he needs one in his life to not only rock his world, but he wants that love only an Island girl can issue to him.
Has Delando Colley found a hit with this one? We believe this track will be a Playlist favourite for many Women from the Islands, and those who are Island minded. The love starts when you press “Play“!
The broke life is not a pretty one, we all need that financial security. While some try to get it through working a 9 to 5 job, others will get the cash by any means necessary. Dancehall Artist Popcaan is on a mission to get it, and just like the title of his new single, he goes into a “Money Heist“! Produced by SkyViews Ent., Poppy is on a mission to get the paper, but also drops some motivation for the Ghetto Yutes along the way. We all have dreams, but we don’t have time for those who aim to be an obstacle in our paths.
Popcaan keeps himself busy these days. From touring, to having music on the “Top Boy” Soundtrack, to prepping for another “Unruly Fest“, “bruk game nah play” when it comes to the Unruly Boss!

After teasing Social Media for a few days, Dancehall’s “Energy God” Elephant Man brings some of that hit making vibes with his new track, “Find It“! Released through Downsound Records, Elephant Man is on a mission to “Tek it to dem” in this 4th quarter. While Ele is no stranger to making hits all year round, expect this one to be the life of the party and prompting many to break out in dance in the coming days!
R.I.P. Louie Rankin and Mr. Wacky!
It’s not secret that Kyng Tavii is a huge Alkaline fan, so much so that the Deejay has inspired many of his skits and music. Today’s entry is no different as he was requested to make a video with the “Detta Boss” in mind. In “Dear Alkaline“, Kyng Tavii parodies Rapper Eminem’s infamous track, “Stan“, to share his love for Alkaline. He shared his ups and downs as a fan, even including taking his side when Alkaline beefed with Vybz Kartel and Popcaan. He even mentioned being a proud Stepfather for a child that Alkaline made with his girlfriend.
Which Artist can you say you’re a huge fan of? Who do you stan? Share with us! Good to see Kyng Tavii putting out some comedic content again, as he has been having a rough time in recent months. Let’s hope he keeps it up. Check out the video below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
That sweet Reggae music continues to seep through some of your favourite shows, and it won’t stop anytime soon. Recently, the 3rd season of the FOX TV show “9-1-1” premiered, and fans of the show were overjoyed. With stars like Angela Bassett and Jennifer Love Hewitt, the series follows the lives of Los Angeles first responders: Police Officers, Paramedics, Firefighters, and Dispatchers. On the premiere episode, viewers got a double dose of Reggae as Jamaican Band Toots & The Maytals and UK Band The English Beat’s music were featured.
Toots and The Maytals were the first to bat as their classic track, “54-46 Was My Number” was featured in a scene, then The English Beat’s “Doors Of Your Heart” followed soon after in another. “54-46” was released in 1968 and 1969, and produced by Leslie Kong. It has been sampled by Rapper Foxy Brown, Major Lazer, and Christiana Aguilera. “Doors Of Your Heart” was released in 1981, and was featured on the Band’s Sophomore album, “Wha’ppen?“.
