In case you didn’t know, popular Afrobeat Recording Artist Mr. Eazi released the 2nd volume in his “Life Is Eazi” mixtape series. With a blend of new sounds and familiar names, this project is one to keep on repeat. One of the familiar names that appears on the project is Jamaica’s own Chronixx on the track “She Loves Me“. With a rather upbeat production, the duo speak on the roller coaster loving they each experience with their respective love interests. A song many can relate to as mixed signals can be a detriment to a budding relationship, and then there are those who have ulterior motives. Be careful as to not let another person misuse your love. Mr. Eazi’s project is out now, but you can check out “She Loves Me” below (be sure to share with a friend). Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Nothing like getting new music, and we’re glad to deliver it to you! Today’s new entry comes from UK Recording Artist Biz as she teams up with Jamaican Producer Wavy Jones for her new single, “No Fuss“. Here she gives listeners a lil bit of Hip Hop and R&B as she speaks on being a “Ride or die Chick“, not bringing drama, and being a one of a kind girl for someone who will treat her right. She lets us in on some of her experiences in a relationship, and lets that person know that if he doesn’t act right, she’ll move on. If she’s the one you need, you have to let her know. Jones’ sampled based production on this track fits the lyrics well and definitely adds to the replay value. Imagine a video for this track. Artwork provided by the talented Romario Lynch a.k.a. “SeenByLynch“. Be on the look out for a new project for Wavy Jones in the coming months. The track is now available on all streaming platforms so get yourself a copy. Otherwise, check out the track below and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

The 60th Grammy Awards event was a memorable one for many. While some went home with awards, there were others who got “robbed“, and others performed and made an impact. It was all fun when Host James Corden teamed up with International Recording Artists Shaggy and Sting for a special version of “Carpool Karaoke“. With the location of the Grammys being in New York, they took it to the Subway to perform a 3 man version of Shaggy and Sting’s new single, “Don’t Make Me Wait“. The performance was met with boos however as passengers weren’t enjoying Corden’s contribution. Being persistent, Corden continued to perform with them only to end up with a bloody nose.
The 2nd half of Shaggy & Sting’s appearance found them being introduced at the Grammys by Corden for a real performance of their new single. It first kicked off with Sting performing his classic “Englishman In New York” which followed by Shaggy appearing onstage later. With many mistaking Shaggy for Rapper Jim Jones because of his appearance, the performance was an awesome one, and definitely had people looking forward to their “44/876” project which has a April 20 release date.
