Vybz Kartel & @BujuBanton Kick Off Their Summer With New Albums!


With the Saharan Dust kicking up the heat all over the world, it’s nothing when it comes to the new releases from Buju Banton and Vybz Kartel that are gonna be scorchers this summer! Once again proving that Prison can’t hold him down, Vybz Kartel emerges with the highly anticipated album, “Of Dons & Divas“, followed by  Buju Banton with his also highly anticipated 11th studio album (12 if you count the rerelease album, “Quick”, and minus the compilations), “Upside Down 2020“.

Loaded with 18 tracks, “Of Dons & Divas” is Vybz Kartel’s 2nd album release this year following the hugely popular, “To: Tanesha“. With features from Lisa Hyper, Teejay, Tommy Lee Sparta, Skillibeng, Lisa Mercedez, Sikka Rhymes, and many more, fans of the “World Boss” can rejoice for new music that will hold them over till more singles drop. While Vybz Kartel maintains a presence through Instagram, only one can wonder how he manages to still release music from Prison after all these years away from physically being in the streets.

With his release from a nearly 10 year bid in 2018, Buju Banton got the fans going with new music. With “Upside Down 2020”, he looks to step back to the forefront of the music culture where he reigned supreme. With 20 tracks onboard, and features from Stefflon Don, John Legend, Pharrell, and Stephen Marley, Buju is in top form, and looks to reintroduce himself to the world in 2020 and beyond. The album packs a flavour for everyone’s tastes, and promises to be a repeater for a long time to come.

With folks calling these albums “Grammy worthy“, we’ll just have to wait and see what the nominations say come later this year. For now, check out the albums below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Vybz Kartel & @GovanaGenna Drop New Albums For 2020!


Two Dancehall giants leveled up for the 2020 with the release of albums. First off, we have Vybz Kartel’sTo: Tanesha” project, and then Govana with his debut album, “Humans And Monsters Are Not The Same“. Featuring 10 tracks, “To: Tanesha” finds Vybz Kartel being vulnerable and pouring his heart out throughout. For those unaware, Tanesha “Shorty” Johnson is Vybz’s Common-Law Wife, and the mother of 3 of his sons (two of which are Recording Artists Likkle Vybz and Likkle Addi). While their relationship has been a topic of rumor mills, Vybz found himself letting it all out through songs. The album also features appearances from Jada Kingdom, Slimatic, Jodi Couture, Jesse Royal, and Sikka Rymes.

Govana’s “H.A.M.A.N.T.S.” features 14 tracks, and finds him delivering motivational songs, gyal tunes, party tracks, and giving us a lil Social Commentary. Originally known as Deablo, he is a member of Aidonia’s 4th Genna camp, and has been enjoying a rapid run since the name change. For many, this album was highly anticipated and promises to be a repeater. The album features appearances by Tarrus Riley, Dre Island, and Protoje.

We Highlight Some Of The Dancehall Artists Who Have Defined The 2010s!


December 31, 2019 marks the last day of the 2010s, and January 1, 2020 will mark the first day of a new decade. It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times, but today we look back at some of Dancehall Artists who have made an impact on the scene. With so many hits and moments, we know lists and faves will vary. Before we start, we want to thank everyone who has given our Blog and Social Media a chance since 2012. We’ve featured so many and have assisted in the careers of plenty, we look forward to doing even more in 2020, and beyond. Let’s get started with our lengthy list.

(Editor’s Note: Everyone’s list is different, so if you have a problem with this one…make your own!)

Vybz Kartel

I mean, what’s a list without the “World Boss“? A man who continued to add fuel to the fire of his musical career, long after making his debut in the early 2000s. With his entrepreneurial side blooming with a Shoe line, Liquor line, Nightclub, Merch, to even Condoms, Vybz was everywhere. He even had a Reality TV series, and kept up with quite a bit of controversy too. Despite him being thrown behind bars in 2011 and facing 35 years soon after, it didn’t stop him from recording music, and releasing singles and albums up to this day. Remember his “Freaky Girl” saga? We know you all have a few Kartel tracks in rotation.

Spice

Spice is also an Artist you can’t deny when it comes to this list as well. Spice held it down for the ladies, and showed the men that she can handle her own. With so many bookings, i’m surprised there isn’t a row or an Airline named after her yet. Spice kept the hits coming, and flexed her entrepreneurial muscle as well with her “Spicey Couture” store which started growing since opening in 2009. With the help of Social Media, Spice’s brand got bigger, and took a major turn in 2018 when she was made a cast member on the popular VH1 Reality TV series, “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta”. Spice welcomed her share of controversy as well which included relationship issues, and the topic of Colorism. With her career starting in the early 2000s, she kept the fire going like her “World Boss” colleague, and got crowned Queen in the process.
