On Friday we premiered Trini Recording Artist Sarkastik Ambassador’s “SDF” single with the promise that a music video was on the way. That promise was kept as today we present to you the visual! Directed by Rhyjell Ellis of Millennial Studios and shot at the famed Idlewood Bespoke in Port of Spain, Trinidad, Sark gets decked out in a nice suit and is accompanied by the lovely Ashly Suite.

Today’s Sunday, and that means it’s another “Oldies Sunday“! for today’s selection, we go back to the year 1994 and check out Andru Donalds’ “Mishale“! Produced by Eric Foster White, this was released through Metro Blue Records (a subsidiary of Capitol Records), and song finds Andru expressing how much he misses this woman despite breaking her heart, and the pain he feels for being separated from her. With a unique sound, this Reggae track that was made for International airplay. The song was featured on Andru Donalds’ self titled debut album which was released in 1994.
(Editor’s note: I remember when the video for this premiered on Jamaica’s “Entertainment Report”, and became a fixture on local TV for a while.)
“Mishale” became a hit for Donalds as it received a great amount of radio play in Jamaica, and made it to #38 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The single was also remixed by Ben Chapman, Eric Kupper and Richie Jones, and Luv Dup. Since “Mishale”, Donalds has went on to release 5 more albums including a “Best of” in 2006, found a couple more hits, got his music featured in two Films (Good Will Hunting and Barefoot), and became a lead Singer in the German musical project, Enigma. He is currently touring and spreading the music all over the world, and you can check for his next performance on his website.
(Editor’s note 2: I think he also recorded for a D&G Malta commercial too. I could be wrong.)
