Wyclef Jean Gets Rave Reviews - Carnival II: Memoirs of an Immigrant

wyclefjean-carnival-rihanna.jpgWyclef's new album Carnival II: Memoirs of an Immigrant has a new release date. The album featuring Lil' Wayne, TI, Chamillionaire, Mary J Blige and more hits stores December 4th just in time for the holidays.

The reviews are in, the critics loved Wyclef Jean's performance for the The Dream Concert - MLK Memorial at Radio City Music Hall!!

Check out what they are saying about Wyclef's performance below:

Daily News
“Hip-hop refugee Wyclef Jean was the best and first to really engage the audience. When Jean wasn’t getting a big enough rise from the audience, he took his act off the stage and into the crowd, rousing the sedate fans from their pricey, $1,000 seats.” - Jim Farber on 9/20/07 - NY Daily News

The New York Times
“Everything seemed pretty tentative until Wyclef Jean took the stage; if any hip-hop star knows how to get a well-heeled audience to stand up and dance, it’s this one.” - Kelefa Sanneh on 9/20/07 - New York Times

Queen Ifrica's 'Below The Waist' still standing firm in the #1 spot - Hype TV Top 20

queen-ifrica-tonyrebel.jpgQueen Ifrica's "Below the waist" continues to reign on the chart as she is still holding on to the # 1 Position. Let's see if this queen can hold on firmly to the top spot.

Busy Signal seems to be warming up the chart this week as there are two songs on the chart for him. The artiste career seems to be blossoming with great improvements just after his change in management to Shane Brown. One of the songs on the chart is of course "The Day". This song also happens to be this week 'Shot to watch' and it moved two spots up to the # 2 Position. Can we therefore say that the song seemed destined for greatness or will this threat last only temporarily?

Incidentally this week newest entry is of course Busy signal's "Nah Go A Jail" at our # 19 Position. This is his second song on the chart and it is making its debut just after his video premier last week. Will the video give the song an added push up the chart?

Ce'Cil's "I'm Waiting" is making great strides up the chart as the song moved five spots up to the # 9 Position. The song seems to be building up it's momentum on the chart at an excellent pace, but will this pace slow down.

Avah Taylor - Experience a Sexy Lifestyle

Avahtaylor-sexygirls-sexygirl.jpg

AVAH TAYLOR was launched in early 2006 by Kerry-Ann Thompson, the Founder and Creative Director alongside Patroe Belcher, the Director of Visual Arts. Together their aim is to establish a unique clothing brand which fuses elements of the Caribbean culture with high quality, class and glamour.

The t-shirt line, which is just the beginning, mixes urban slogans, dancehall slang and various design techniques to create a dynamic look. “Our designs are aimed at men and women who are confident about who they are and what they want out of life. Our culture and roots are very important to us and we wanted the shirts to be a reflection of that love for Jamaica,” Patroe explains.

The duo also has plans to expand production to include denim, hoodies and accessories in the future but for now both agree they are focused on introducing AVAH TAYLOR to the world. However, Kerry-Ann states “We don’t want to place ourselves in a box, so when we say dancehall lifestyle brand, that doesn’t mean we cater to solely to the dancehall, it’s just where we look to for inspiration. That’s also one of the main reasons we launched the Avah Signature Collection, to help solidify our position as a fashion brand and not just a label. ”

Look out for AVAH tees in a store near you.

50 Cent Outsells Kanye West In Europe

By: Kenny Rodriguez

50cent-cashgirlssexy.jpgIt seems Kanye West and 50 Cent are still feuding over first-week sales - “Curtis” has outsold “Graduation” on the European charts, despite Kanye initially winning in US and UK markets.

50 Cent’s “Curtis” debuted at No. 1 this week on the European Top 100 charts - which includes sales from Italy, Germany, and France - while Kanye’s “Graduation” peaked at No. 3.

Meanwhile, Spanish singer Manu Chao’s “La Radiolina” took second place.

No word yet on sales figures.

To recap: three weeks ago “Graduation” outsold “Curtis” in the UK; two weeks ago Kanye won again in the US; and this past week 50 Cent triumphed on the European charts.

Blige teamed producer Terius "The Dream" Nash -- the same mastermind behind Rihanna's 'Umbrella' -- for 'Pains.' If 'Just Fine,' the album's first single, is any indication, folks can expect fun, danceable beats from the the woman Mya calls "the queen," and to whom Nelly Furtado attributes her music career.

Canada's Kool Haus Denounces "Murder Music" - Elephant Man

elephantman-diddyrihanna.jpgAs released in an official statement to the Toronto Star and PROUD FM, late Friday afternoon, The Kool Haus does not support any form of violent and aggressive lyrics against the gay/lesbian community; including those sung by Elephant Man, scheduled to perform at The Kool Haus, Friday September 28th.

CEO of The Kool Haus, Charles Khabouth, has released the following statement:

"Had I been aware of the nature of the lyrics, I would not have allowed the booking; unfortunately, I was only made aware after the fact. It is impossible for a venue that hosts hundreds of shows a year to be aware of all violent and discriminatory lyrics performed by artists. Furthermore, had I had the ability to pull the show altogether, once I was made aware of the nature of the lyrics, I would have. Due to a contractual agreement that was signed before the matter was brought to my attention, I was not able to act as I would have liked. I want to make it clear, I am not comfortable with this show at The Kool Haus, and I in no way, support the musician or his lyrics; I am simply bound to a contractual agreement that I am unable to break.

MS. Nikki 'Bad From She Born' - Armed and Sexy

sexygirl-msnikki.jpg

I am a vibrant 26 year old who loves life. I love experiencing new things, and just trying some sh*t that would be completely out of the ordinary. I am currently in nursing school, and will hopefully be graduating this December.

The most important thing to me at this point in my life - I want to make a better life for my folks than the one I had. I'm not saying that I grew up in poverty, but my mama struggled like a mutha f*cka to pull us through. So everyday, I grind so my kids can live the best life they can, lol. And as for my hommies; I love 'em all. If I didn't have them to keep me afloat when I couldn't hold myself, I'd be f*cked up GOOD.

Is Barbee Short on TLC With Boyfriend Since Beenie Man?

barbee-barbiebeenieman-d%27angelwife.jpgAre Barbee’s musical relations with Beenie Man causing discomfort for her boyfriend?
That’s the single most important question running around in the dancehall circuit right now.

Dancehall’s newest female addition Barbee, has been the talk of the town since she was snapped by cameras holding tightly to the King of The dancehall Beenie Man. The pictures seemed to do wonders, as she has pushed head-first into the deep end of the pool of public interest…forced to either sink or swim.

She has enjoyed a fair amount of success since then. In fact, talks in dancehall circles are that she's one of a few artistes that were propelled to stardom without a hit song at the time….well except for L. A. Lewis who is always popular without a hit tune. But news in the streets is never scarce, and OutAroad.com get to understand that the latest word in the entertainment circuit is about Barbee's boyfriend. According to sources close to her boyfriend, he's been complaining of not getting enough TLC from the eye catching beauty since she teamed up with the Doctor Beenie Man.

The question is - if Barbee has a boyfriend, then has Beenie Man finally landed himself a contract as Joe-grind?
Many news sources have revealed that Beenie Man went shopping recently, buying Barbee all that she needs. Some websites have even reported that the two were caught kissing while auditioning for dancers to appear in a music video.

Ce'Cile dispels rumours of being pregnant for Bounty Killer

cecileandbountykiller.jpgKingston, Jamaica: - Recently, rumours have been circulating that Ce'Cile is pregnant, and it has also rumoured that she is pregnant for Bounty Killer. Ce'Cile has decided to make a statement to clear up all gossip once and for all.

"No, I am not pregnant, I was never pregnant and I have never been romantically involved with Bounty Killer nor have I ever said that I was."

The rumour started when Ce'Cile decided to test just how rumours can start, due to rumours that had been spread about the artiste in the past.

"It's amazing how things can get out of hand. On Friday June 1st, I appeared on Hype TV's Up & Live to premiere my new video Goody. Anju Val (Hype TV VJ) had mentioned rumours about me having had breast implants. Amused by this new rumour, I remarked that I am never sure how these rumours get started but am intrigued by them. Jokingly, I said to Anju Val that we should start our own rumour and see how far it gets. On live TV, I said, while laughing 'OK Anju, let us say that I am pregnant for you'. It still amazes me that even though I actually said that we were joking about it, people ran with it.

"As for Bounty's involvement, I'm not quite sure why his name came up, think we were seen together at an event, and probably because people now thought I was pregnant, they were looking for the baby daddy, so now it's Bounty's baby. I'm still in shock at how this has gotten out of hand".

Rihanna Shut Up and Drive Lyrics & Video

[Verse 1]

I've been looking for a driver who's qualified
So if you think that you're the one step into my ride
I'm a fine-tuned supersonic speed machine
With a sunroof top and a gangster lean

[Bridge]

So if you feel me let me know, know, know
Come on now what you waiting for, for, for
My engine's ready to explode, explode, explode
So start me up and watch me go, go, go, go

[Chorus]
Got you where you wanna go if you know what i mean
Got a ride that smoother than a limosine
Can you handle the curves? Can you run all the lights?
If you can baby boy then we can go all night
Cos I'm 0 to 60 in three point five
Baby you got the keys-

Now shut up and drive
(drive, drive, drive)

Shut up and drive
(drive, drive, drive)

Rapper - P Diddy Defends Britney Spears

By: Owen Williams

britney-spears-pdiddy.jpg

Rapper Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs has jumped to the defense of troubled pop star Britney Spears - claiming that she’s not a big drinker, nor is she the party girl everyone thinks she is!

The ‘Bad Boy For Life’ rapper reportedly said: “The times I was around her, in her defence, she didn’t drink any alcohol. I didn’t see her drink.

“I was hospitable, I offered everybody a drink and, you know, she had water.”

However, Diddy Combs did admit that he neglected to advise Britney not stay out late and get some much needed rest before her big comeback.

“Everybody has their own way. Some people deal with nerves, they can’t go to sleep.”

By: Icey Jace

firepashon-reggaefemale.jpg

There’s an empress emerging into dancehall and with her comes a rich heritage of music. As the daughter of the legendary singer “Sugar Minott”, Fire Pashon is as engulfed as they come.

Born Tamar Minott she is genuinely passionate about making music and proving herself a strong capable female DJ. She has come along way in a tough industry which is testament to her dedication to keep improving, while trying not to be discouraged. Having toured extensively in North America with her father Pashon has credits as a stage performer but is still searching for that break out hit single. Coming close a few years ago Pashon released the savvy, temperamental record “Dem Grudgeful” on Jah Snow Cones Applause Riddim which gained her street credibility. Now working out of her fathers label Black Roots Recording Pashon is steadily building a catalog. She recognizes that the international market is receptive to reggae & dancehall and has capitalized by constantly performing abroad. But her last performance locally at Capleton’s “A St. Mary Mi Come From” showed that she still has a strong fan base a yard. Slated to grace Big Yard’s next Riddim, Pashon is ready for whatever card she’s dealt. OutAroad.com spoke with her recently and found out just how beloved she is overseas. Check it out.

“Pashon how has your music been progressing / what have you been up to?”

FIRE PASHON
“Well I must say overseas I’m doing very fine, I tour every year with my father and I’m trying to do some ground work down here in Jamaica, trying to get on some of those riddims. Just trying to do more work in Jamaica “

I Get Money Remix featuring Jay-Z and Diddy

50cent-diddyjayz.jpg

Diddy and Jay-Z are killing the track alongside 50 Cent on this remix also dubbed the "Forbes 1, 2, 3 Remix" as a reference to the Hip Hop Kings Charts published by Forbes in august. Too bad to see that Fifty loses his cool and cancelled his UK concerts after his highly successful 5-borough tour in NY.

Fifty may have lost against Kanye West in the Soundscan competition since Kanye is already #1 on the UK charts but he did a great job to promote his album and Curtis may just outsell Graduation in the next couple of weeks when the industry will start focusing on total sales.

Queen Ifrica gets her first #1 - 'Below The Waist'

queenifricatonyrebel.jpg

The Females are surely the stars of almost all our categories this week on the chart, as Queen Ifrica's "Below the waist" as finally dethroned Tarrus Riley's "She's Royal" from the #1 position dropping him to the # 2. This is quite an achievement as it is her first # 1 single on any chart and she is also the second female to top the Hype T.V. Top 20 chart for 2007. The first being Macka Diamond the Female deejay of the year for 2006 with "Hula Hoop". Let's just see how long this Queen can stay in power.

The 'Shot to Watch' this week is Barbee featuring Beenieman's "Give it Up". Just like the steamy duet this song is surely warming up the chart as it moved three spots up from our #11 position to occupy our # 8 Position. The question to ask is how far can this pair go?

The 'Greatest Gainer' is Ce'Cile's "I'm Waiting" as it moved four spots up the chart to occupy the # 14 Position. This song is showing good movements up the chart after only three weeks on the chart. It obviously has potential so therefore, can it wait long enough to seize the top spot or will it just simply expire?

Bugle's "What I'm Gonna Do" is the 'Newest Entry' on the chart. It is making it's debut at our #19 Position. The song is very clear in expressing the statement on every chart watchers mind which is 'what is the song really going to do'. Will it make great movements up the chart or will it be marginal movements, if any at all.

Pop Star Rihanna bad and loving it

rihanna-jayzbeyonce.jpgAt 19, stunning Barbados R&B beauty Rihanna has already sold 5.4 million albums, released five No. 1 singles, worked with industry mega-stars, been compared to one-woman-brand Beyonce and insured her legs for $1 million US.

That might explain the barely-out-of-high-school teen's new bad-girl demeanour, which comes complete with scandalous outfits, sexy videos and diva behaviour.

Rihanna's fittingly titled third record, Good Girl Gone Bad, has been dominating the charts based on the prowess of the catchy first single Umbrella, which features a guest spot by iconic rapper Jay-Z, who discovered the singer and put her on his Def Jam label.

The record has also ushered in a naughtier image for the fresh-faced singer, who was first introduced to us as a soft, island beauty with songs such as last summer's inescapable dance hall smash S.O.S., club classic Pon De Replay, power-ballad Unfaithful and R&B staple We Ride. Now, Rihanna has traded in her ballads and tropical dresses for latex booty shorts, fishnet stockings and, sometimes, nothing but body paint, such as in the video for Umbrella.

"I basically took the attitude of the bad girl and I really got rebellious and just did everything the way I wanted to do it," she says of her new album. "I didn't want to listen to anybody. I didn't consult with anybody. I just want to have a little more fun with my music and be a little more experimental in terms of my image and my sound. I just reinvented myself."

Dancehall Diva Macka Diamond and New Comer Stacious At War?

macka-diamond-sexygirls.jpgSources in Jamaica have alerted ReggaeWire to a developing saga in Kingston Jamaica.

Dancehall diva, Macka Diamond whose hit single “Bun Him” catapulted her to the international arena, has allegedly confronted new comer Stacious.

The incident transpired at a popular New Kingston night club last week. It is alleged that Macka Diamond aka “Money O” approached a senior member of Stacious’s entourage and began elaborating on her need for not a lyrical war, but real war, suggesting the inclusion of guns and ammunition.

Stacious who seemed confused by the motive for the altercation agreed to a lyrical war but was taken aback, when Macka Diamond reiterated the need a street war.

Stacious then left the club after which Macka Diamond left moments later.

Up until press time, a motive for the confrontation could not be confirmed, and members of The Stacious management team could not provide any verification behind Macka Diamond’s threat.

Posed by the critics to become the next lady Saw, Stacious whose real name is Stacy Scarlett, emerged on the local dancehall scene in 2005 with the single “Thug Gal”. Since then she has made various appearances on local and international events. Her current single “No Ordinary Girl” is receiving heavy rotation worldwide.

Skull - Korea's first reggae superstar - hits the Billboard

By: Christopher “Icey Jace” Campbell
OutAroad.com Writer

skull_southkorea_reggae.jpgThere’s no denying him, his witty dynamite flow will definitely catch you off guard and have you saying. Who’s that Rasta dude singing? Skull the newest and brightest spark to hit the reggae music genre internationally is 100% authentic.

A native of the Asian country Korea Skull, sports thick shoulder length dreadlocks, is a die hard Bob Marley fan, and is bent on exploring the roots of reggae to the fullest. Musically he’s ranking amongst the best in the world with his first single Boom Di, Boom Di enjoying 8 weeks and counting on the Billboard Hot Singles Charts. Currently ranked # 14 Skull began enjoying cultural music as a youth. In fact several video clips of the Asian sensation shows he does great covers of Bob Marley hit records plus he has the lean and rock foot movement of the late great musical icon.

He still utters his native dialect but Skull has quickly started to learn the English language. Though his music is a straight up tempo reggae vibe on bouncy hybrid (fusion of genres) rhythms Skull has the unique ability of crossing musical boarders with a stellar voice. His vocal capacity and clarity allows him to be mistaken as a pop artist to unsuspecting listeners. He even depicts a hip hop image in his whole demeanor and just has a superstar quality about him.

Taurrus Riley's She's Royal is the #1 song in Jamaica for more than three weeks

Tarrus-Riley-jamaicansexygirls-reggaelady.jpgUnlike the recent Political Change where one party lost it's ruling Position Taurrus Riley's "She's Royal" remain firmly in its #1 Position for the fourth straight week. Let's see just how long this song will be able to hold on to the top spot.

Queen Ifrica's "Below the waist" is on the move again after rising to the #2 position. It is therefore the shot to watch as she is really representing for the ladies. Will she be the second female artist to reach the #1 spot this year on the Hype Tv Top 20 Chart.

Busy Signal's "The Day" is positioning directly for the top spot after moving four spot s up to the # 3 Position. Is this song destined for the top?

Movado's "Pon Di Gully Side" who was threatening the #1 position for three weeks slips down the chart to the #5 Position.

The greatest gainer this week is Cham's "Conscience" as it is clearly on the go. It moved five spots up the chart to the #7 spot, after only three weeks on the chart. Is it heading to dethrone the number one song?

There are two new entries on the chart this week. These are I-Maroon's "Mi Salt" which makes its debut at the #16 position. This song has already skipped four spots up the chart. The other entry is Assassin's "Move Like A Sissy" which is at the # 19 position. This song enters the chart just after the launch of his second album Gully Sit'n.

Di-Shaw working out with Dancehall producer Skatta

Dshaw-skattaburrell.jpgIn music having a credible connect with a solid reputation in the industry can be the determining factor of who gets a shot at a successful career and who gets left behind, it’s that simple.

Music is highly competitive and raw talent alone won’t get you through many doors. So when an artist is cosigned (given stat quo) by a superstar producer or A&R the industry naturally reacts with their undivided attention. Recently internationally acclaimed dancehall producer Cordell “Scatta” Burrell the man responsible for Nina Sky’s break out hit single “Move Your Body”, as well as Aidonia and the successful Inevitable riddim. Will now help to guide the talented and positive singer Di-Shaw. Why? Simply because Mendanzo “Di-Shaw” McKoy can deliver, he’s that one artist that slipped under the radar but was never gone. Now back with a massive 150 song catalog Di-Shaw is gearing up to release a wave of music in Jamaica. Though seemingly unknown to most Di-Shaw has been doing his rounds for some years as a recording artist. He’s worked with the veteran Beenie Man, the melodic Luckie D, and the soulful Junior Kelly as well as R&B producers The Alarm Squad.

Lando - A trained General of the Bounty Killer-led Alliance

By: Icey Jace

lando-alliance-bountykiller.jpgNot many young recording artists nowadays have a heritage of music rooted in their youth. Many over time develop an understanding of the craft and set out to master the art form to the best of their ability, but in the minority is a chosen few who has been blessed with musical genes that allow them to effortlessly construct lyrics and commandingly deliver single after single. One such artist goes by the stage name Lando. Notably short in stature Lando is big in voice and is reminiscent of a General in Training, with his tactical and methodical approach to music.

Currently under the management of Solid Agency Lando is among the new brass of DJ’s pushing for 2007 credits. Already a feature on several FULLY LOADED stages Lando has been doing his rounds at major events like the recently staged ATI Appleton Live Concert @ waves Negril where he got great crowd response from the mostly tourist filled venue. Cognizant of what mainstream dancehall requires Lando has broken ground with a pulsating new single entitled Step Inna Di Club which is currently being distributed in the street of Kingston. While on assignment at Solid Agency OutAroad.com spoke with the budding STAR.

Sexy Tita - she's hot - she's blazing

sexygirl_tita.jpgHey, my name as you all know is Tita, I was born in Jamaica but spent most of my adult life traveling. I can’t wait to get back home to party like a RockStar - just kidding; my aim is to finish college and to be my own boss. After school I am going to still pursue my modeling and I am not going to stop until I’m at the top and beyond.

What she do in her spare time:
I love my family so whenever I get the chance to hangout with them I do. Apart from that I love to go to the beach to show off my sexy figure and relax. But on a cooler side, I will stay home watch movie, read, and doing cross-word puzzles.

Who she wants to be like:
It’s not that I am disrespecting anyone, but I only want to be me, there are persons who I idolize - but at the end of the day don’t you ever try to be like them.

Advice to others:
Life is story so be careful how you turn the pages. Meaning, in what ever you do, think before you do so because it’s not a wonderful feeling to make decisions that will haunt you for the rest of your life.

It’s understood that Fox Searchlight Pictures facilitated nation wide castings for persons interested in the role of the film said to be titled NOTORIOUS.

My management told me about it and you know I had auditioned for it and I met with the director and I nailed it and he gave me a shot now at being in the movie." His lack on big screen acting skills didn’t seem to be a problem for the casting selection team that was said to be deliberately searching for an unknown star to depict the music icon.

Biggie also known as NOTORIOUS B.I.G was shot and killed in Los Angeles in March 1997. According to hiphop.com the movie will be produced by Voletta Wallace “B.I.G.'s mother” along side Wayne Barrow and Mark Pitts “members of B.I.G.'s former management team”.

Foxy Brown Sentenced To One Year In Jail For Violating Probation

foxy-deaf-prison.jpgA New York criminal judge sentenced Foxy Brown to one year in jail on Friday (September 7) for violating her probation multiple times, according to a New York spokesperson for the Department of Probation. The troubled, pregnant rapper received the maximum penalty.

Brown (real name: Inga Marchand) had been in custody at the all-women Rose M. Singer Center at Rikers Island prison since August 22. She was ordered there after violating her probation in two separate incidents (see "Foxy Brown Sent To Jail For Violating Probation"). The violation stems from two separate incidents, Ryan confirmed: Brown's recent arrest for allegedly assaulting her neighbor with a BlackBerry cell phone and for leaving the jurisdiction of New York without court permission.

In a separate hearing earlier in the day, Brown was indicted on assault charges stemming from the physical encounter with her neighbor.

Spokesman Jack Ryan told MTV News that Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Melissa Jackson held a "lengthy" hearing in which she scolded the rapper for not abiding by her probation guidelines, which included attending anger-management classes and regular meetings with a probation officer.

The song is another one of the host of professionally produced tacks on the album. It has superb arrangement and the vocals blend perfectly with the instrumentals.

Track number 4: Hot Like That is another dancehall favourite only this time it is even better, remixed with rap superstar Trina and boasts the production of icons Steely and Cleevie for Danger Zone and Sobe Records. Jamdown, appropriately placed as the 5th track is a well-suited ode to Jamaica. The track, produced by Ce'Cile, is a song that highlights the positives of Jamaica. "I've travelled to so many places but in the end, no matter how nice abroad is, there is no place like yard. I always look forward to coming back home." Ce'Cile explains. "With all the negatives people sometimes have to say about Jamaica, I wanted to speak about the positives of my home."

D'Angel - 'Man FI Get Bun'

d%27angel_beenieman_babymacrodean.jpgD’Angel and Beenie Man are at odds again, and this time it is ‘The Doctor’ that is complaining. According to reports from a website, Beenie Man is claiming that D’Angel has voiced a song with lyrical content suggesting that she cheated on him during their disastrous marriage that lasted less than a year.

The allegations seem to have some substance as OutAroad.com managed to get the lyrics to the song that has been causing a lot of controversy. As usual we aim to please our readers and for this reason we will share a verse out of the songs with you below:

“Bwoy gwaan like him waan come hate me body
Just through him hear say me a par wid Teddy
Through him know say dem man de big and heavy
And di man plan fi buy me a brand new Chevy
Mi dun tell the bwoy mi waan a strong man fi come hackle mi body
From wah day ya, mi notice say the bwoy nuh ready”

When OutAroad.com got in touch with D’Angel she denied Beenie Man’s allegation saying that it was false. According to D’Angel the song was done a long time ago.

“This song was done from 2005………Music never dies… … ...what can I say, I have to meet the demands of the majority that love and support Reggae Music and have been supporting my music over the years,” said D’Angel ending with her trade mark slang … AN’SO!!!!!!”

Efforts to get a comment from Beenie Man proved futile as it was reported that he was out of the island.

Tarrus Riley's She's Royal makes it a trio on Hype TV Top 20 Singles Chart

Hype TV Top 20 singles chart for September 7th, 2007

taurrusriley_she%27sroyal.jpg

Tarrus Riley's "She's Royal" is still #1 on the chart after securely controlling the spot for about three weeks. This song seems to be on a serious mission of remaining at the top, let's just see.

Movado's "Pon Di Gully Side" continues to be in its #2 position. Will this song ever seize the #1 spot or will it dwindle away?

Queen Ifrica's "Below the waist" remains the shot to watch at the #3 spot. Let's see if the queen will dethrone the royal song or not.

The females seem to be making great momentum on the chart this week, as we have approximately four females shining bright that is Etana, Bar-Bee, Queen Ifrica and the illustrious lady Ce'Cile with her "I'm Waiting" song. This is our newest entry on the chart and it is making its debut at the #19 spot.

This week greatest gainer is Baby Cham's "Conscience" as it moved six spots up the chart from the #18 position to the #12 position. This song is really on the move after being on the charts for only two weeks. This song seems to be destined for success.

Kenny 'Babyface' Edmonds and Tricia Yearwood - CMT Crossroads Special airs Sept 21

Babyface_kevinedmonds_moddona.jpgThe series that proves great music knows no boundaries returns, bringing together multiple Grammy winners, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and Trisha Yearwood. Known for his smooth voice and prolific songwriting, Edmonds joins country superstar Yearwood for a magical evening that was taped before an invitation only audience in Nashville. The two soulful voices will join as one on the latest episode of CMT CROSSROADS: KENNY “BABYFACE” EDMONDS AND TRISHA YEARWOOD premiering Friday, Sept. 21 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT.

CMT CROSSROADS: KENNY “BABYFACE” EDMONDS AND TRISHA YEARWOOD will be re-telecast on Saturday, Sept. 22 at 4:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.; Sunday, Sept. 23 at 10:00 a.m.; Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 2:00 p.m.; Saturday, Sept 29 at 10:00 a.m.; and Sunday Sept. 30 at 2:00 p.m. All times are ET/PT.

Singer, songwriter, movie producer, record producer, multi-instrumentalist, and 10-time Grammy award-winner Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, whose work on his own music and others' has resulted in more than 100 million career sales, has been a dominant creative force for nearly two decades. He hooked up with partner Antonio “L.A.” Reid in the late 1980s, first in the Indianapolis R&B group the Deele, and later as co-founders in Atlanta of BMG's LaFace Records, one of the most successful labels in R&B history, home of Toni Braxton, OutKast, TLC, and Usher. Babyface's countless honors, which include Grammy awards for Producer Of the Year in 1992, '95, '96 and '97 (the only one in history to win three consecutive years), plus numerous NAACP Image Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and American Music Awards, established him as the greatest hitmaker of the '90s. In addition to his work with Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, Mariah Carey, Eric Clapton, Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Lionel Richie, and TLC (to name a very few), Babyface's own string of pop and R&B crossover hits is equally impressive: "It's No Crime," "Tender Lover," "Whip Appeal," "When Can I See You," "This Is For the Lover In You," and "Every Time I Close My Eyes" topping the list. In 2007, Babyface's signing as the first major artist on the Island Def Jam Music Group's Mercury Records label takes flight with Playlist (in stores Sept. 18), a collection of new compositions and cover versions of some of his favorites, including the first single, James Taylor's "Fire & Rain."

Dancehall Diva Keiva Wedding Plans?

By: Kon-Vick
OutAroad.com Writer

dancehall-diva-keiva-boyfriend-jamaica.jpgWord had been circulating like wildfire on the streets of Jamaica that dancehall diva Keiva and her lover Leon are busy making wedding arrangement plans. OutAroad.com heard about this rumor almost two weeks ago but decided to do our own investigation after receiving several emails from concerned fans.

Getting in touch with the diva via telephone proved to be a tedious tasked, however our determination propelled us to her recently opened store in Princeville Plaza on Constant Spring Road. Upon arrival we saw her accompanied by her prince, who plays several vital roles in her life including her accountant and road manager.

When queried about her marriage arrangements the diva, who had appeared in several of dancehall’s biggest video was just as surprised as us when we first heard the rumor. Her response was a restrained: “This is news to me.” She soon burst out into a loud laughter holding firmly onto her lover.

“I have been hearing about this rumor myself and even if we did have plans to get married this would be something for us to look into and make sure we are both ready to say I do because marriage is not a game,” she pointed out to OutAroad.com.

[Intro:]
50
Ferrari F-50

[Chorus:]
Shorty you aint gotta take 'em panties off just move it to the side
If you wanna ride on a roller coaster baby come on and ride
It goes up and down and round and round
Stand up or get on the floor
Its only night I know what you like
And I just had a break yall

[Verse 1:]
Good Evening Ladies I tell you from the start
I'm hoping you enjoy my amusement park
There's lots of activities fun things to do
And now I find my pleasure in pleasing you
Some rides go fast some rides go slow
If your heights went up high HELL yeah I go low
It tastes so sweet let's dig in cotton candy
if we get carried away we'd be starting a family
It's a perfect time for a magic trick
Girl you know there's no fun without the magic stick
Now watch me as I pull a rabbit out a hat
Then you can use the rabbit all over your cat
Applause now it's the first half of my act
Started as a pimp now I'm more like a mack
I don't need your paper just don't f**k with my stats

(Oh it's like that?) Yeah it's like that

danielle-lloyd-and-50-cent.jpgBritish model Danielle Lloyd has filed a defamation lawsuit against The Daily Mirror for claiming that she had sex with 50 Cent.

The Press Gazette reports that Lloyd claims that The Daily Mirror published a story on their newspaper and website on July 11th headed “Fiddy’s No Diddy” which reported that she sexually propositioned herself to 50 Cent thus leading to end of the relationship with her boyfriend Marcus Bent.

Lloyd also claims that despite her publicity agent Ray Levine stressing to a writer for The Mirror that she had no sexual involvement with 50 Cent; the newspaper still published the story and didn’t add Levine’s response.

Lloyd also alleges that The Mirror’s report spawned two stories on two unnamed websites with titles that read: “Danielle Lloyd's steamy sex session with 50 Cent” and “Marcus Bent No Longer Bangs This Chick.”

Rihanna expose it all - And denied relationship with TV star

rihanna-bra-sexygirls-beyonce.jpgRihanna is denying rumors that she’s romantically involved with Transformers star Shia LeBeouf. Talk of possible coupledom began when the two were photographed by the paparazzi while getting cozy at an L.A. nightclub.

Shia’s next project is the fourth installment of the Indiana Jones series, and according to insiders the romantic rumors were “all the talk of the Indiana Jones 4 set.” A second supposed sighting of the two at a romantic dinner only added fuel to the fire.

But when the Good Girl Gone Bad singer was asked about her relationship with the Disturbia stud, she denied that anything was going on between the two.

In fact, according to Rihanna, the press got it all wrong, because, “Me and Shia, we are just friends, you know, we barely even know each other.”

Enjoy the photos of Rihanna on the set of her upcoming music video “Hate That I Love You.”

Jamaica - Inmate Rehabilitation Through Music

black_inmates.jpgBehind the walls of the General Penitentiary Prison in Spanish Town Jamaica, lies a budding rehabilitation program. Designed by the Jamaica Constabulary Force community outreach Division, in collaboration with the Department of Correctional services, the project named “Rehabilitation Through Music” is catching the attention of Justice and inmate correctional facilities worldwide.

Implemented in 2003, the unique project serves to enhance and expose the musical talents hidden behind the looming walls of the facility commonly known as “GP” in Jamaica.

Conceptualized and initiated by JCF member Gladstone Wright, the program was catalyzed in 2005 with the involvement of then incarcerated Reggae star Jah Cure.

Hesitant at first, Jah Cure eventually joined the program as its main test subject given his reputation in the general population. From this association came the hit single “True Reflection” that has since become an international sensation.

The Man Who Gave Reggae Singer Jah Cure A Second Chance

jahcure_prison.jpgA towering physical figure, Gladstone Wright may be classified as a Teddy Bear by close friends and family. But in the Jamaica Constabulary Force, he is a man of impeccable repute, and one with a heart of gold.

The mastermind behind one of the most revolutionary inmate rehab programs in the western world, he is the man who gave Jah Cure a second chance.

Speaking to Riddimja.com Netradio in an exclusive interview, “Moses Wright” as he is commonly known, spoke about Jah Cure, the first graduate of this fledging project.

The project involves honing the musical talents of inmates within the Jamaican prison system. “People would not believe the mass of musical and literary talent that lies behind those walls, all they need is just a chance”, he quipped. And this he did, by personally starting the program with limited help from the public and private sector.

His first subject of the program was Jah Cure. “It took us a while to convince the Cure to “fullticipate”, but he eventually did”, beamed Mr. Wright.
