In a world where “Love” as a word has lost some meaning, and as an action done for all the wrong reasons, one may be curious to know how they can love like the old couples back in the day. Enter Rhiya Luna who yearns for that kind of love in her latest single, “Ancient Love“. Produced by Slaybad Musiq and Nuh Response Production, Rhiya dreams of having that old school love where proper etiquette and mannerisms were displayed, dates that weren’t interrupted by modern devices and situations, and long walks in the night filled with great conversations. She also mentioned running away to elope, but that still happens (lol). If you’re feeling just like her, give this song a listen. If you’re curious about that old school love, talk to the OG couples out there and learn something. Check out Rhiya’s latest below!
Mobay Rapper Chance (a.k.a. Kans) continues his run of dropping new music this year. His “Indelible Colours” project wasn’t enough, so he teamed up frequent collaborator Daley on “For The Low“. Produced by Mxdnight, the duo speak on being deceived. While they do admit their own past mistakes, they were thrown off when a friend was involved in their love triangles. Guess this is a game of “Bun fi bun“, but the Artists do express their feelings on this one. Not nice being put down for the low. Video created by Ear Plugs, Artwork by the always talented Kidding Art. Get ready for more music from Chance, Daley, and the High Tunez Gang (HTG) soon! Check out the track below.
With Valentine’s Day only a few hours away, many are looking forward to a few hours with that special someone. What about those who want to be sneaky and deceitful? Anna Mariah’s new video will make you think twice as she does not play. With her crew ready for anything, Anna Mariah drops “Don’t Play With My Heart“! Directed by LEB Studios, we see the story of a couple who are as loving as they can be, but one partner wasn’t being loyal throughout, and it ends where he faces the consequences of his actions in a very big way. Suitors beware, Anna is not here for the games, so you better come correct or leave her alone. Anna Mariah has been grinding in the past couple years, and we expect to see more of her in 2018. Watch the video below!
DJ/Producer Calvin Harris is readying the release of the follow up to his successful “Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1“! This new project promises to bring even more hits for you to groove to. Setting off the roll out with him is PARTYNEXTDOOR with the single, “Nuh Ready Nuh Ready“. Featuring PARTY channeling some of his Jamaican side, he breaks out the patois while dishing lyrics about not settling down, not being ready to have a family, and enjoying the offerings from the bachelor life. Too too sweet. With production that gets you moving, and a video to match, how are you feeling it so far? Stay strapped up, and watch below!

Directed by Scotty Dreamkiller and shot in Kingston by Warren Buckle, we step into a Council cypher they each fire off a few lyrical rounds and further seal that Jamaican Hip Hop should not be taken lightly. With plans to release more work individually, and as a group, all you have to do is “Pay Attention“! “Nothing Else Matters” is available now, check out the video below.
February 6 marks the day two Reggae legends were born, Bob Marley, and Bunny Rugs. Bob Marley started out in Trench Town, and became a larger than life Icon while Bunny Rugs made his mark as a Solo Artist, and Lead Vocalist for one of Reggae’s most successful Bands, Third World. While many pay respects to them today, we’d like to look back at a few songs that further immortalized them through samples. Samples will come from Bob Marley’s solo singles, or with The Wailers, and from Third World Band during Rugs’ time. Enjoy!
