It’s that red and white with hearts day, for other folks it’s Valentine’s Day. Expect your timelines to be flooded with “sweet nothings” from couples, or people realizing how single they are in the status updates. Whether you’re spending the day with special someone, or handling things solo, we have a playlist for your activities. Today we present to you our Spotify Playlist titled, “Dancehall Love“! Featuring over an hour of those Dancehall tunes that will cause stripped clothes, noise complaints, thumps and bumps all over the house, rocking vehicles in parked positions, and steamy spaces. Side effects of taking in this playlist include heavy breathing, sweating, relaxed muscles, fatigue, a full body workout, and heart shaped eyes. This Playlist is not responsible if you’re caught cheating, or there is a baby on the way. Follow our new Spotify page as we’ll be dropping a few playlists here and there. Have a great February 14th, check out the music below!
Today marks the 42nd Birthday of the one they call, “World Boss“, Vybz Kartel! While many hoped he would celebrate his Birthday as a free man, he is still incarcerated while his music runs rampant in the playlists of many worldwide! In honor of his special day, fans recall some of their favourite VK lyrics marked with the hashtag, #WhenKartelSaid. While it has happened in previous times, we’d like to highlight some of the entries today as Kartel continues to churn out songs. A legend in the game, let’s see what some of the fans have recalled below!
The Champagne is all done, the party favors are boxed up, and many are still hungover, but welcome to 2018! While we look forward to another year filled with new developments, we have a few predictions we want to put out there. We aren’t Nostradamus, but let’s see if the stars are aligned in Entertainment.

1. Chronixx wins the “Best Reggae Album” Grammy
With the 60th Grammy Awards coming up later this month, many Artists and viewers will be tuned in to see if their favourite will be carrying home a shiny prize. In Reggae music, we predict that the “Dread & Terrible” Artist, Chronixx, will carry home the award for “Best Reggae Album” for his project “Chronology”. This win will see him beating out fellow nominees like Damian Marley, Morgan’s Heritage, J Boog, and Common Kings! This would be a huge look for the Artist, and give the album even more attention. Maybe a Grammy tour as well? Let’s see.
2. Vybz Kartel will be successful in his Appeal hearing.
Since 2011, we’ve heard the phrase “Free Kartel!”, and it will not stop anytime soon. Vybz Kartel has more than a cult following, and it doesn’t help when he can still release songs while incarcerated. It was reported over the past couple years that his Defense team will file an appeal in the conviction of Kartel and 3 of his associates who are all serving life sentences. Despite numerous delays, it was reported that his hearing will be held in July 2018. If he wins, things might be shaken up a bit. Free Ninja Man too.
Yes, we know, Vybz Kartel is one of the greatest Dancehall Artists ever. We’ve seen the cult like following, we’ve heard all the tracks since his Incarceration, his ability to cater to every vibe and situation, and his influence on many. He is no stranger to collaborating with International acts though. While tracks like “Pon Di Floor” (Major Lazer), “Frontin’ (Remix)” (Pharrell & Jay-Z), “Twerk It (Remix)” (Busta Rhymes), “Girlfriend” (Busta Rhymes & Tory Lanez), “WTP Remix” (Eminem & Supa Dups) get spins, he also has collaborated with the likes of Lorde (on the way), Kalash, Wizkid, and Sean Kingston over the years. But today, here are 5 International collaborations that you didn’t know existed, or may have forgotten about!

It’s Sunday, and a new Vybz Kartel just dropped. Of course we gotta check this out! While this was scheduled to drop later, Producer Rvssian decided to unleash it to the world! Over the “Moscow Riddim“, Addi goes in on why he’ll forever be the best out there. No matter who’ll try to copy him, he’s the Prototype! No Election needed, call him the best. Still not sure? Check out the track below, and decide for yourself!
Ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha… The “World Boss” Vybz Kartel is back at it again with a new song! Titled “Don’t Come Back” and released through Vybz Kartel Muzik, Addi gives us a different flow this time around as he ridicules ungrateful women, having nary a problem with a woman as he still can get whichever one he chooses, declaring himself as the “One Don” and should have a holiday in his honour, and further exhibiting that he is one of the best out there. Fresh off the Video premiere of “Girlfriend” with Busta Rhymes and Tory Lanez, we know some new collabs are in the works for him. No long talking, get familiar with the new Kartel below!
UPDATE: Video out!
