Don’t worry about a thing. Recently, Automotive brand Hyundai announced their sponsorship of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and a campaign followed shortly. Recruiting US Band Maroon 5, they released a Commercial that had them covering one of the legendary Reggae Artist Bob Marley’s biggest hits, “Three Little Birds“. The song was released in 1977 as track 4 on Bob Marley & The Wailers’ “Exodus” album, and in 1980 as a single. This is the second time the song has been used in a campaign for Hyundai as it was performed by Stephen Marley and Jason Bentley in 2013. The song has enjoyed numerous covers over the years, and features in various films, ads, and soundtracks for sports teams.
Enjoy the World Cup, every little thing’s gonna be alright! Check out the Commercial and track below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

It’s Thursday, so that means another post in our “Quick Throwback” series! Before being a controversial figure in Dancehall, before emphasizing some “Equal Rights & Justice” and encouraging ladies to be a “Cheerful Giver“, Ishawna Smith was on the grind trying to be heard. Today we go back to the year 2008 to check out her track, “All Over Again”. Released through Foota Hype Music, Ishawna speaks about falling in love all over again with her lover. With looking back at the good times playing a big part, Ishawna is determined to make things right with him and make their relationship stronger than ever.
Under the guide of Bounty Killa and an affiliation with DJ Foota Hype, Ishawna moved on to being one of the popular figures on the Dancehall scene, and one of the more controversial ones thanks to the various subject matter in her lyrics.
