Turn Around for Jamaican in America's Next Top Model - @WinnieHarlow

Dave Rodney, Contributor

Chantelle-Brown-Young-americas-next-top-model-jamaican-girl.jpgUSA: A ravishingly beautiful Jamaican young woman who was recently grappling with thoughts of suicide has now found herself among the finalists on the television smash series America's Top Model. Her name is Chantelle Brown-Young, 19, and although she was born and lives in Canada, her roots are firmly anchored in several parishes across Jamaica from where her parents originate.

Chantelle, who is also called Winnie, is currently sequestered at a secret location with no access to cell phones, social media, computers, press interviews, family nor friends for the duration of the television taping. But her journey to one of the most sought-after platforms in the American fashion industry was at best a perilous and bumpy ride.

Chantelle is undoubtedly an oddball in the beauty and fashion industries where flawlessness is nurtured and celebrated. She suffers from a rare skin condition called vitiligo, a disorder she's had to endure since childhood that gives her facial and body skin two distinct colour tones- a light shade of chocolate, and white. Pop star Micheal Jackson also suffered from the same condition. This skin disorder is a result of a malfunction of the immune system. It affects less than 0.5 percent of the population, but its impact on Chantelle's life has been profound.

"While growing up, I was teased, ridiculed and bullied and called names like cow, zebra and all manner of other disparaging slurs", the beauty revealed via a video recording prior to the media blackout. "The continuous harassment and the despair that it brought on my life was so unbearably dehumanizing that I wanted to kill myself", she disclosed.
Chantelle's mom, Lisa Brown who lives near Toronto but who has roots in Trelawny and Clarendon in Jamaica told the Gleaner that her daughter had more than her fair share of challenges while growing up due to the vitiligo. "Chantelle is a sweet, beautiful, outgoing teenager and while she was being abused, I didn't stop praying that God would help me to find a way", she said.

Pride of Africa: Kenya celebrates Nyong'o's Oscar - @Lupita_Nyongo

By Tom Odula And Jason Straziuso
BusinessWeek

Lupita-Nyong%27o-actress-oscars-award-best-supporting-act.jpgNAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - "You are the pride of Africa," Kenya's president exclaimed on Twitter as he celebrated Kenya's first major Oscar win by actress Lupita Nyong'o.

Nyong'o was the topic of the day on Kenya's radio and TV stations Monday, the day after her Oscar win for Best Supporting Actress in the movie "12 Years A Slave."

At a conference at the United Nations headquarters in Nairobi, more than 300 people broke out into applause after Wanjira Maathai - the daughter of the late Kenyan Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai - mentioned her mother and Nyong'o in the same sentence.

"We all had hoped of course that she would win. Everybody feels a sudden attachment to her, she's a Kenyan woman," Maathai said in an interview later. "A lot of her work, a lot of her experience in film started in Kenya."

Nyong'o, 31, was born in Mexico to Kenyan parents but was mostly raised in Kenya. A graduate of the Yale School of Drama, Nyong'o had starred in several productions in Kenya before landing her breakout role alongside Brad Pitt.

Nyong'o had been considered a front-runner in a category that included Jennifer Lawrence and Julia Roberts. When her name was called Sunday, she bent over in her seat as the audience erupted.

Tarrus Riley 'Love Situation' Hits #1 On Billboard Charts - @TarrusRileyJA

Tarrus_RIley_Billboard_Love_Situation.jpgNew York, New York. Tarrus Riley recent album, 'Love Situation' continues to top the charts and hits the #1 spot again, this time on the Billboard Reggae chart. Love Situation released on February 4, debuted at #1 on the iTunes reggae chart along with five tracks hitting the singles chart. With the great success of the album Tarrus Riley, JukeBoxx records, Cannon Music, and Zojak World Wide are all very pleased with the current success of the album and the response from fans and critics alike worldwide.

Patricia Meschino of Billboard Magazine stated, "Tarrus Riley's Love Situation is a stunning tribute to Jamaican rock steady as well as a landmark career recording. The use of classic Jamaican rhythms, which are given renewed luster through the immaculate production of Dean Fraser and Shane Brown, as well as the artist's superb, deeply affecting singing and songwriting yields an irresistible album that may finally bring Tarrus and by extension, contemporary Jamaican reggae, a much deserved, widespread audience throughout North America."

Currently on his Love Situation tour, Tarrus Riley is performing to large crowds and numerous sold out venues. Most recently, Tarrus Riley headlined the sold out, 1st annual Ladies Ball in Queens, NY and his stellar performance was well received

Ziggy Marley snags Reggae Grammy for live concert album - @ZiggyMarley

By Marc Parc
OutAroad Freelance Writer

Ziggy_Marley_Grammy_Album_Reggae_2014.jpg

International Reggae superstar, Ziggy Marley has won the 2014 Grammy for Best Reggae Album for his live album, Ziggy Marley in Concert.

Marley eclipsed Sizzla (The Messiah), Beres Hammond (One Love, One Life), Snoop Lion (Reincarnated) and Sly & Robbie and the Jam Masters (Reggae Connection) for the Reggae Grammy, his fifth since the award was first instituted in 1985. Ziggy Marley in Concert is Marley's second solo album to win a Grammy in addition to three he won as the front man of his band, Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers.

Perhaps this should not as a surprise to music lovers, as since the Reggae Grammy was introduced, a Marley has taken home the honor 10 times, seven of those times happening since 2002. Stephen Marley has won the award three times (2008, 2009, 2012) while their brother, Damian 'Jr. Gong' Marley won twice (2002, 2004).

Barrington_Levy_Daddy_biggs_video_shoot_Jamaica_Rosie.jpgAs reggae icon Barrington Levy's latest single, 'Rosie' bombs FM radio into submission, many people have been wondering what is the singer's obsession with 'Rosie'.

Several music industry insiders, reggae artistes, video vixens, and music fans descended on the Mixing Lab studio last week for the Mellow Canary's 'Rosie' shoot hoping to find out.

"There is no obsession with 'Rosie'," a smiling Levy said. "She's just a character." People think what they want to think, but me and Rosie don't have nothing going on. It's not Tutty-grand Rosie or any other Rosie."

Daddy Biggs CEO of Platinum Camp Records and President of Black Roses Records have never been more focused on aggressively promoting this hit single.

This video will resonate we the people and the single is a refreshing current reggae sound sure to be a hit. It has captured the ears of radio Dj's- willing to enter the single into heavy rotation. Everyone is loving the new sound. "Rosie" it has already gone world wide.

The video shoot, which was directed by Allison McLean and Team Roses started at 6 a.m. and continued well into the night. The legendary Chris Browne handled the actual video photography.

Industry insiders believe that this single, given the early buzz on the streets, is destined to be a monumental success. Radio broadcasters such as Barry G, Ron Muschette and Elise Kelly and Digital Chris have been raving about the well-produced single, 'Rosie', where Barrington Levy is at the height of his awesome vocal powers.

Sizzla Kalonji Got His First Grammy Nomination - @SizzlaKalonji @VPRecords

Sizzla_Kolonji_Grammy_First_Reggae_Album_The_Messiah.jpg

Congrats to Reggae Superstar Sizzla Kalonji on his first Grammy nomination. Mostly written and executive produced by himself, Sizzla's full scope of talents are displayed on his 70th effort The Messiah, which was released this May. As one of reggae's most prolific artists, he showcases his musical depth, passion and precision on this 15-track collection inspiring positive change worldwide. His social commentary on songs like "Chant Dem Down," "No Wicked Man" and "Psalms 121" reveal his daring bravado and righteous lyrics, while the melodic anthem "Good Love" unveils his softer side. The Messiah peaked at #1 on the South Florida Reggae Chart and New York Reggae Chart. With his fresh perspective, it is evident that Sizzla remains the reigning king of roots.

Beres Hammond Back In The Grammies With One Love, One Life - @BeresHammondOJ @VPRecords

Beres_Hammond_grammy_One_Love_One_Life.jpg

Known to many as the "Otis Redding of Reggae," Beres Hammond has been producing and pouring out his smoky-sweet vocals over every kind of riddim track for almost 40 years. VP Records released his latest Grammy-nominated, double-disc studio album One Love, One Life in November 2012. The release peaked at #1 on Billboard's Top 10 Reggae Album chart and was hailed by Rolling Stone as "one of the best albums of a four-decade-long career." The first disc One Love includes his signature classic lover's rock sound, while the second disc One Life contains more of his socially-conscious, spiritually empowering tunes. Beres Hammond produced 19 of the 20 songs with co-producers Donovan Germain on "No Candle Light," Collin "Bulby" York on "In My Arms" and Michael Fletcher on "More Time." This is Beres Hammond's second Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album. The icon was considered in 2002 for his 2001 studio album Music Is Life.

Ninja Man, Capleton & Louie Culture Shined at Christmas Extravaganza

Ninja_Man_Capleton_gt_taylor_show.jpg

Anyone who was in attendance at the recently held Boom Energy Drink GT Taylor's Christmas Extravaganza stage show in St. Elizabeth can attest to the fact that Capleton and Ninja Man were two of the best acts of the night.

As matter of fact the two veteran Deejays delivered what could be described as a show stealing performance.

Capleton was the first to hit the stage, backed by the Ruff Kut band the 'King of Fire' was in a no nonsense mood as he served up several of his biggest hits which had the crowd going wild.

However things got even more frenetic when he was joined on stage by the 'Don Gorgon' Ninja Man. Digging deep into their catalogues both artistes performed several of their older hits such as Lotion Man, Send For Protection, Good So and Long Fi Release much to the delight of the huge audience in attendance.

Midway their performance Ninja Man said to Capleton "A new tune time." Then both artistes took turns reeling off brand new lyrics that ignited the crowd.

Soca's New Leader (BET) Bunji Garlin Recently Took Over NYC, Boston, Hartford @BUNJIGARLIN @WithLovePR

Bunji_Garlin_Soul_Train_Award_2013.jpgBunji Garlin, known to many as the Viking of Soca, is taking the genre to new heights. A year after his explosive single's release, "Differentology (Ready For The Road)" is breaking beyond Caribbean Carnival and turning into a massive hit in North America. The single was recently chosen as one of NPR's Favorite Anthems for 2013 and is in the running for MTV Iggy's Song of the Year as well as a primetime spot on NYC's Top 40 radio station 92.3 FM NOW's Toro's Top 7 @ 7:47.

On the heels of his 2013 Soul Train Award win for Best International Performance, Bunji Garlin (who BET recently called "Soca's new leader") went on a whirlwind promo tour across NYC, Boston and Hartford between Dec. 8 through Dec. 12 to promote his latest single. As a direct result, "Differentology (Ready For The Road)" peaked last week at #1 on Shazam (the commercial mobile phone-based music identification service) in the New York City boroughs including Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens as well as Fort Lee, NJ. The single also aired again inside Brooklyn's Barclays Center during the NBA face-off between the Nets and Clippers on Dec. 12.

Garlin kicked off his promo tour with performances in Brooklyn, NY, including Caribbean City's Fire Sundays on Dec 8th and Brooklyn Bowl the following evening, where the talented vocalist had the opportunity to play "Differentology (Ready For The Road)" with The Roots at OkayPlayer's annual holiday party. This past Thursday (Dec. 12) in Manhattan, the Viking of Soca headlined Webster Hall alongside Hot 97 FM's DJ Mister Cee to a full house of fans screaming "we ready, we ready." The same day, Garlin swung by Miss Lily's Variety Store for an interview and freestyle session on Radio Lily's Large Up Sessions and performed at WBLS FM 107.5's holiday party and Queens' Level Ultra Lounge hosted by Power 105's DJ Norie.

Tessanne_chin_Shaggy_and_friends_Concert_2014.jpg

Shaggy lives by a motto that has been adopted by people around the world. The motto is "it's not about the award, it's about the reward," and reward is what Shaggy will receive to begin 2014!

On January 4th, Shaggy and friends will celebrate at the artists annual concert called Shaggy and Friends. The event is produced by Shaggy and team to raise funds for the Bustamante Children's Hospital in Jamaica.

This year some of Shaggy's closest friends will be in attendance to support his fundraising efforts. Friends such as award winning, and international recording artist Ne-Yo whose hits include "Miss Independent," "Sexy Love," and "Because of You" will perform. Ne-Yo, who became friends with Shaggy after meeting the star through mutual friends, didn't hesitate to lend support to the cause saying "I am honored to perform for the children of Jamaica and bring added attention to the Bustamante Hospital." In addition to Ne-Yo joining Shaggy on stage, January 4th will mark the homecoming of Jamaica's international songstress, Tessanne Chin.

Tess is the best - Jamaican singing sensation takes home 'The Voice' crown - @Tessanne

By Marc Parc
OutAroad Freelance Writer

Tessane_Chin_Celine_Dion_Voice_Winner_Jamaican.jpgIt is fitting that Tessanne Chin's handle on the popular picture-sharing website, Instagram is 'TheBesTess,' because after pulling off one of the most incredible renditions of a Whitney Houston song in recent memory and showing exemplary humility throughout her run on The Voice, she has painted an image of excellence and grace that has ever graced a talent show stage.

That image is now worth a lot more than 1,000 words, as the 28-year-old Jamaican singer took home the title on the season five finale of the American talent show on Tuesday night, pocketing US$100,000 and a recording contract with a major U.S. label. The result, which also made Adam Levine the winning coach on the show, was confirmed following a two-hour season finale, featuring a number of performances including all the season's contestants, as well as guest performances by the likes of Lady Gaga, Ne-Yo, Paramore and many more.

The standout performance of the night, however, was from Tessanne, who received the opportunity to sing with legendary singer and idol, Celine Dion, causing her to hysterically burst into tears as she tried to channel the shock. That nervous energy, however, was translated into the typical vocal brilliance she displayed throughout the competition, performing Love Can Move Mountains alongside the Grammy-winning musician, with both clearly enjoying themselves and giving a display of pure musical talent.

Snoop Lion, Sizzla amongst finalists for Reggae Grammy - @SnoopLion @SizzlaKalonji

By Marc Parc
OutAroad Freelance Writer

Snoop_lion_grammy_reggae_sizzla_kolonji.jpg

After temporarily ditching hardcore lyrics for songs about unity and anti-violence, Snoop Dogg has seen his Reggae efforts rewarded by The Recording Academy as he was named one of five finalists on Friday for the Best Reggae Album award at next year's Grammy Awards.

The artist, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, is being nominated for his album, Reincarnated, released in April while using the Snoop Lion moniker. The album, which features collaborations with Mavado, Popcaan, Mr. Vegas, Drake and Miley Cyrus amongst others, was the best-selling Reggae album in the United States this year, with over 21,000 copies sold in its debut week and, to date, has sold well over 50,000 copies there.

Despite criticism from legendary Jamaican artists such as Bunny Wailer and Lady Saw, the album received a number of positive reviews. However, the Snoop Lion act appears to have been cut, at least for the time being, as he recently changed his name again, to Snoopzilla.

Another artist receiving his first Reggae Grammy nod is Sizzla Kalonji for his album, The Messiah. Having recorded over 70 albums in his career, it is the first chance he will have a music's most prestigious award. The Messiah features 15 tracks, including Chant Dem Down and Psalm 121.

Bunji Garlin Wins Soul Train Award - @BunjiGarlin

The Viking of Soca Will Set Foot in NYC Next Week From Dec. 8-13

Bunji_Garlin_Soul_Train_Award_2013.jpgTrinidadian soca star Bunji Garlin takes home the 2013 Soul Train Award for Best International Performance. Other nominees in this category included Machel Montano, Emeli Sande, P-Square and Iyanya. While this year's Soul Train Awards was taped in Las Vegas on Nov. 8, the ceremony aired this past Sunday (Dec. 1) on BET. Garlin lands this win for his hit song "Differentology.".

Bunji Garlin's "Differentology" has been the year's biggest anthem throughout the Caribbean Carnival season and is a making a major impact in North America. DJ supergroup Major Lazer immediately jumped on the remix, who helped fuel the buzz to a crossover audience earlier this year. More recently, the song was declared the champion on NYC's HOT 97 FM's Battle of The Beats competition, which currently put the track into full rotation at hip hop’s premiere station. "Differentology" was just featured on ABC's top-rated TV drama series Grey's Anatomy and is quickly becoming one of the NBA's new favorite arena anthems. It aired during the Brooklyn Nets vs. Portland Trail Blazers face-off and Toronto Raptors vs. Miami Heat game.

Bunji Garlin is set to release his upcoming studio album, aptly titled Differentology, next year on VP Records. His anticipated album will be his first full-length release on VP Records since 2007's Global. The international soca vocalist recently wrapped his album photo shoot with iconic photographer Jonathan Mannion (whose credits include Lance Armstrong, Jay Z, Lil Wayne, Drake & Bon Iver).

Next week (between Dec. 8 - Dec. 13), Garlin is also slated to arrive in New York City to promote his lead single "Differentology" and deliver a special surprise performance to be announced at a later date.

Super Cat Promises Memorable Performance for Sting 30 - @ReggaeSting @downsoundrecord

Supercat_sting_2013.jpgWilliam Maragh a.k.a. Super Cat, caught up with Barry G live on air in Jamaica. Barry G got Cat live on the phone in New York as he was hanging out with his manager Earlton. Cat started out by acknowledging the greats who had passed on in the form of Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Garnet Silk, who passed this time in 1994.

The D.J. who also goes by the name 'Wild Apache' reminisced about the music and about the role Barry G and David Rodigan played in the music. He spoke to sharing stage on Sting with Ninja Man and others and rising to the occasion. Super Cat says he will be in Jamaica shortly and alluded to the fact that patrons should look out for his performance on Sting 2013. This was the DJ's first interview in Jamaica in a dozen years and when he performs on Boxing day, it will be for the first time in a dozen years.

'Cat' released hit singles 'Si Boops Deh', 'Cry Fi Di Youth', 'Sweets for My Sweet', 'Dolly My Baby', 'Wild Apache', 'Don Dadda' 'Ghetto Red Hot', 'Dem Nuh Worry We' in the late eighties and early nineties. In 1992 signed to Columbia Records, he released the album 'Don Dadda' and in 1993 on Sony Music he released 'the good, the bad, the ugly and the crazy' with his brother Junior Cat, Junior Demus and Nicodemus.

Hardcore and unapologetic, the wild apache 'Super Cat' with the mic as his tool and the stage as his school, is sometimes conscious, militant to a fault and 100% controversial.

@Tessanne strolls into 'The Voice' semis following double delight

By Marc Parc
OutAroad Freelance Writer

Tessanne_Chin_voice_america_Jamaica.jpgThe vision of Jamaican songstress, Tessanne Chin going all the way towards the top on season five of The Voice is no longer the pipe dream it appeared to be at the start; it now borders on being a full-fledged reality as the mercurial talent soared to the semi-finals Tuesday night.

Chin is now one of five finalists on the talent show, receiving the third most votes overall for her sparkling renditions of Bob Marley's Redemption Song and Katy Perry's Unconditional. The former, a tribute to Jamaica's greatest musical export, landed Tessanne top spot amongst her compatriots on the iTunes chart, peaking at 15th on the overall chart.

She joins teammates, Wil Champlin and James Wolpert, who was saved by the 'instant save feature near the end of the show. This means their coach, Adam Levine has a commanding advantage going into the final shows on Dec. 16 and 17, guaranteeing that he will have a protégé on said finals with three of the remaining five contestants under his tutelage.

Jacqueline Lee (Team Christina) received the most overall votes while Cole Vosbury (Team Blake) finished second. Matthew Schuler, a fan favorite since his performance of Hallelujah earlier in the competition, was sent home, in part due to being seemingly out of his vocal range during his performance of Percy Sledge's classic, When a Man Loves a Woman.

Sting Launch JA - Sting Has Definitely Gone Cosmo - @ReggaeSting @Connectintlpr

Sting_30th_celebration.jpg

CLICK HERE TO WATCH STING LAUNCH

Sting's launch was a cosmopolitan affair at the Jamaica Pegasus. Red Carpet entrance ushered you into the celebrity mingle bar and from there into the ballroom which was tastefully decorated with sponsor call outs. The VIP enclosure reflected all the sponsors in movie like fashion as sting supporters greeted each other with hugs and kisses and laughter and just a general good mood and feel. The décor was on point; they brought the technology and production values of Jamworld to the Pegasus.

Howard 'Big Mac' McIntosh was in his element when he introduced the Sting Directors (Isaiah Laing, Junior 'Heavy D' Fraser, Josef Bogdanovich and Big Mac himself). He entered with a 'bad man' walk which the capacity crowd loved, he played some music and then he ran the 'Tiger' track 'When'. He had the audience singing and dancing with him and then the track stuck on 'Laing'. 'Big Mac' proclaimed that the Supreme men were big, black and bald, but they had a partner who was the opposite of that, at which time he welcomed Joe to the 'million dollar man' track.

Creator of Sting and Supreme promotions C.E.O. Isaiah Laing spoke about the December release of his book "Point Blank Range….A Jamaican Bad Man police..The story of Isaiah Laing"
Josef Bogdanovich spoke afterwards and just like Tony Stark "Iron Man' he proved he was the millionaire philanthropist genius in terms of what he has planned for Sting.

OutAroad Freelance Writer

Tessanne_chin_The_Voice_america.jpgThe journey continues for sparkling Jamaican songstress, Tessanne Chin as she squeezed into the top six of NBC's hit talent show, The Voice Tuesday night after once again tapping into her roots by performing an island classic.

Chin joins fellow Team Adam mates, Wil Champlin and James Wolpert in the top six of the heart-stomping live performance round, leaving Adam Levine as the only coach with all of his protégés still alive in the round. Cole Vosbury of Team Blake (coached by Blake Shelton)and Jacqueline Lee of Team Christina (coached by Christina Aguilera) also advanced through the initial round of votes while Lee's teammate, Matthew Schulermoved on thanks to the 'instant save' feature.

This meant Ray Boudreaux and show favorite, Caroline Pennell were sent home, the latter's elimination leaving coach, Cee'Lo Green with no more artists on his team.

Having shown off her versatility by mastering Reggae, pop and soul music, Tessanne Chin dipped into the sound which made her a star in Jamaica in the mid-2000s, going Reggae fusion with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvuVFHTvdaY, the Grammy-winning single by rock band, No Doubtand the 'Queen of Dancehall,' Lady Saw.

Trinidad and Tobago's First-Ever Gospel All-Inclusive A Massive Success - @Foxfuse

Foxfuse_and%20friends.jpg

New York, NY (FOX FUSE) - Trinidad and Tobagonian Gospel reggae artist Joel "Positive" Murray celebrated his seven-year journey in music at Trinidad and Tobago's first-ever Gospel all-inclusive extravaganza, Chapter 7 - Blessing After Blessing, on Saturday, November 9, 2013 in Diego Martin, Trinidad. Backed by his ultra-talented Signature Band, Positive guided the avid audience through his entire catalog, touching on his versatile sounds and songs ranging from traditional Gospel classics to reggae and dancehall-influenced gems, making for a more contemporary and modern take on Gospel, for which he is known. The night was supported by other local Gospel acts including Isaac Blackman, Rizon, Sean Daniel and J Prince, each performing on tracks with a DJ, leading up to the headlining, live-band performance from Positive, providing the sold-out crowd with an unforgettable and glorious experience of non-stop singing and dancing throughout the balmy Caribbean night.

Attendees of the first-ever Gospel all-inclusive were treated to a vast array of native cuisine that included fresh doubles, corn soup, roti, various chicken and fish dishes, and local libations such as virgin guava daiquiris, as they bore witness to the ministry and music from Positive and friends. This showcase served as an introduction of Trinidad and Tobago's Gospel reggae music industry to media, government officials, the business sector and advertising industry, and fans alike, all of whom were in attendance. Gaining international media attention with his current album Forever My King (released last December from FOX FUSE), Positive was joined by Billboard Magazine journalist Patricia Meschino, who journeyed to Trinidad to cover this auspicious occasion. One highlight of the night was when Positive invited Meschino on stage to properly introduce her to the audience and thank her for what's she is doing for Caribbean music, and now Gospel reggae.

Tessanne heads to the top eight on 'The Voice' - @Tessanne @UsainBolt

By Marc Parc
OutAroad Freelance Writer

Tessanne_Chin_Usain_Bolt.jpgJamaicans breathed a sigh of relief Tuesday night after singing sensation, Tessanne Chin edged into the top eight of NBC's hit talent show, The Voice.

Chin, one of the favorites to win the competition, was left to wait nervously as her compatriot on Adam Levine's team, James Tolbert received the most fan votes of any top 10 contestant while fellow teammate, Wil Champlin finished with the fourth most votes.

With Matthew Schuler of Team Christina (led by Christina Aguilera) and Ray Boudreaux of Team Blake (led by Blake Shelton) also going through early, Tessanne had to sweat out more than half the show before her name was finally called by show host, Carson Daly, which set social media alight.

A night earlier, Tessanne was one of the standouts during the top 10 live performance show, flipping the script by performing Gladys Knight and the Pips' soulful classic, If I Were Your Woman. The lower, more mellow tone of the song proved no sticking point for the Jamaican songstress, as her range and transitions throughout verses were relatively smooth.

Tessanne closes first live show on 'The Voice' with a bang - @Tessanne

CLICK HERE TO WATCH TESSANNE CHIN'S PERFORMANCE

By Marc Parc
OutAroad Freelance Writer

Tessanne_Chin_Voice_Winner_2013_Jamaica_NBC.jpg

Make no mistake, Tessanne Chin is not on The Voice just to represent Jamaica, she is a mission to become the newest universal sensation to come out of the island after her most stunning performance yet on the NBC talent show Monday night.

Tessanne, already a fan favorite on The Voice after progressing through a blind audition, a battle round and a knockout, left no doubt regarding her legitimacy as a top contender to win the talent show with a flawless set during the show's live performance round. Following nine performers and a bevy of anticipation, the Hideaway singer showcased herself as not only as arguably the best performer of the night, but tapped into her undoubted superstar potential that looks certain to be fulfilled, regardless of the show's outcome.

Adding a bit of 'yard' flavor to the proceedings, Tessanne paid homage to one of her biggest mentors, legendary Reggae singer, Jimmy Cliff by performing his greatest hit, Many Rivers To Cross. Having performed covers of pop hits by Kelly Clarkson, Emeli Sande and Pink in previous rounds, her switch to a more familiar sound only ingratiated her with audience members and judges that much more, belting out every high note effortlessly and leaving every bit of emotion on the stage.

Though several of her supporters and herself were moved to tears following this set, the judges were not surprised by her effort, particularly judge, Christina Aguilera.

"As amazing and incredible as that was, I was not surprised. I knew you were capable of those soaring vocals, I am a fan,"

Tessanne heading to live performance round on 'The Voice' - @Tessanne

Marc Parc
OutAroad Freelance Writer

Tessane_Chin_Voice_live_performance.jpg

The momentum garnered by accomplished Jamaican singer, Tessanne Chin continues to build as she advanced to the live performance round of the popular NBC talent show, The Voice Monday night.
Much like the battle round, Tessanne had to compete against a member of her own team, led by Adam Levine, to advance. This time, however, this would be a one-on-one matchup rather than a joint performance, like she had with veteran pop/jazz singer, Donna Allen two weeks prior.

After a less-than-stellar practice session, Tessanne was determined to give her all and then some as she took on American singer/songwriter, Ashley DuBose in the knockout phase. After DuBose gave a very commendable rendition of Train's hit song, Hey Soul Sister, Tessanne was left with the task of one-upping her formidable opponent with a rendition of Kelly Clarkson's chart-topping hit, Stronger.

Any trepidations prior to her performance were immediately knocked down for the count as Tessanne's strong vocal clarity, breathing ability and stage presence were on point throughout the nearly two-minute set.

Demarco_photo_jamaica.jpgDespite spending nominal time in Jamaica due to his hectic tour schedules, International Dancehall superstar Demarco continues to be one of the front-runners for the genre. The blonde-haired singer last week became the first Dancehall act to grace a major concert stage in Ethiopia.

The True Gift Entertainment (T.G.E) recording artiste hails the Ethiopian visit as another milestone in his career and a step in the right direction for Reggae and Dancehall music.

In a statement to the media Demarco says, "The tour was great! exhausting but fulfilling nonetheless. This was my fourth time in Africa but my first in Ethiopia and Australia."

Alluding to the state of the Jamaican music industry he intimated that, "Aside from creating my own legacy I try to use the opportunities given to me to open more doors for our music across the world, whether that means taking time out for a fan, doing an interview or simply signing a CD, I'll do whatever is necessary. This is important if our industry is to grow and compete on a global level with other genres."

Tessane dominated night two of this season's blind auditions. Read on for our other top picks from the Sept. 24 episode of 'The Voice.'

Tessanne Chin: Adam Says She Could Win 'The Voice'
But it was Tessanne Chin, 28, who really had the judges going all-in. The final performer of the evening, singing "Try" by Pink, this Jamaica native had all four judges turned around by the time she hit the song's chorus.

Having performed on tour with well-known reggae singer Jimmy Cliff, Tessanne is no novice, but she was still nervous to go on The Voice.

"This is my first time, on this level, singing a song that's not reggae," Tessanne revealed. "I'm going to hold on with two hands and make the most of this opportunity."

Jimmy, himself, called in to wish her luck. He said her audition was "a great opportunity for America to see you."

She knocked it out of the park, giving Adam the confidence to proclaim, "You could easily win The Voice this season." And with that, Team Adam snagged the final performer for the second night in a row.

heineken_casting_triple_century_club_chris_gayle.jpg

On Saturday September 14, Chris Gayle's Triple Century bar in New Kingston, was abuzz with activity and excitement as the final audition in the Heineken Inspire competition got underway. A total of 116 contestants turned out to showcase their talents and pieces to the judging panel of designers Carlton Brown and Minka as well as Edna Manley lecturers Robert Archer and Katrina Coombs.

The majority of the participants competed in the Arts and Music categories.

According to Nasha Douglas, Brand manager Heineken, the turnout was overwhelming.

"We are quite pleased and encouraged by the turnout here today. It shows the tremendous talent we have in Jamaica and also the support that the Heineken Inspire campaign has garnered over the past year," Douglas said.

"We will now go through all entries and make a most difficult decision of finding the final twenty, made up of five persons from each category, art, fashion, music and film," she explained.

The most stand-out pieces were branded with Heineken in some way. A Heineken dress, a glass Heineken table and a set of clay and tile paintings were some of the items that made an impression.

Konshens Changes the Game with Konz - @KonshensSojah

Konz_876_shoes_sneakers.jpgNew York, NY. Jamaican dancehall superstar Konshens has made a major power move with the ground breaking launch of his shoe line Konz 876.

With this game-changing move, Konshens will set new standards for the dancehall game because Konz 876 is not a mere endorsement deal for Konshens, as he will have equity in the venture and play a key role in all marketing and design decisions, alongside his business partners.

"The plan is to build the first worldwide recognized dancehall brand and we seem to be doing that with the huge amount of pre orders just based on posts from my Instagram and Twitter accounts. Dancehall has for many years been looked at as just a hustle, I want to take brand "dancehall" to the globe and do it in a way where we will benefit outside of just the music," Konshens states.

"Dancehall and Reggae music have the widest range of core fans worldwide and I think the only thing that separates us from other more mainstream genres is the lack of entrepreneurship on our part as artistes. There's so much more we can do to maximize on our potential, influence and pulling power."

Konshens and his business partners, who are already successful businessmen, intend to increase that trend and usher in a new era in dancehall.
The brand's first release will be five different shoes. One is the "Konz Sub" which is a mix of patent leather and leather.

The long anticipated collaboration between Grammy award winning dancehall artistes Sean Paul and Damian 'Jr. Gong' Marley has hit the airways through the release of Riot featured on Sean Paul's sixth studio album, scheduled to be released this year.

Since its release, the single has been blazing up the airways and social media properties and have fans singing along with its catchy chorus line. Sean Paul said that the collaboration was long in coming but they waited for the right moment to work together for this single. "Even though we have been friends for years and saw each other on tours, we never got the chance to work with each other until '09. Damian has produced two songs for me and we have written another one but we always thought that we needed to come out with a banger and Riot turned out to be the one," Sean said.

DJ Sparks has included the single in her rotation and says it has the ability to become a popular and number one hit. "People will like Riotbecause it has a kind of Hip Hop vibe. I like the positive message and the nice bouncy beat that it is on," Sparks says. The single with beats of Reggae fused with Electronic Dance Music and Hip Hop features Jr. Gong chanting "The Prophet tell you say not to provoke the youth them to wrath. Deal wid di youths dem right or else a riot goin start." Words that depict the basic message of the single. It also features the artistes going back and forth in the verses to give the song a dynamic yet cohesive effect.

I-Octane Takes US Labor Day Weekend By Storm - @Realioctane

Ioctane_labour_day_new_york_show.jpg

Using his historic closing performance at Reggae Sumfest 2013 as a launching pad, reggae and dancehall superstar I-Octane continued the momentum by returning to the United States for a whirlwind Labor-Day-Weekend tour. His first stop was in Delaware where he made his debut at a show dubbed "In DI Dancehall". His energetic performance made on impression on the capacity crowd, who came from New York, DC and several of the states in between, and showed their appreciation through thunderous applause and shouts of approval as he sang several of his more popular songs. Reveling in the overwhelming support I-Octane claimed, "It is important for me to come to these markets that do not typically see Reggae and Dancehall shows. I will definitely come back to perform in Delaware".

On Labor-Day Friday, Octane made his much anticipated debut at Radio Juggernaut-Hot 97 annual star-studded "On the Reggae Tip" show. He delivered a fiery 15 minute set that brought the audience of over 7500 people to their feet. I-Octane was quite happy with this show as he declared, "There is still some ways to go but Hot 97 demonstrated that they are on the right track by producing a reggae-centric show such as this."

Changing up the pace, on Labor-Day Saturday Octane and the Silver Factory Merch Company held an event to officially launch I-Octane's merchandising line. Hosted at Vinnie's Styles boutique it drew several fashion insiders and bloggers who raved about the collection. The biggest hit was the I-Octane skate board which was the brainchild of the designer Odyssy who indicated, "I was looking for something different and the free-spiritedness of reggae and skateboarding made for a natural marriage". To celebrate his line, the artist felt compelled to give a 10 minute performance and was backed by 12 year-old DJ prodigy DJ Difference of Livity Movements. The artist also took some time out at this event to shoot some scenes for his viral video "Real Talk" that is scheduled to debut in the near future.

Shaggy_Neyo_Sly_Robbie_itunes_album.jpg

New York, New York. International superstar Shaggy seems to be having an outstanding year. With his recent stellar performance at Montreal Reggae Festival in Montreal, Canada, Shaggy now holds the 1st, 2nd and 3rd spots on the Reggae iTunes chart.

Just releasing his second single, 'You Girl' featuring Ne-Yo, off his soon to be released album produced by legendary Sly and Robby, titled Out of Many, One Music, the single is currently #1 on the Reggae iTunes chart.

"It shows that people are still looking to hear good quality reggae music and the hard work we at Ranch continue to put in daily will pay off. Out of Many, One Music is filled with great tracks like 'Fight this Feeling' and 'You Girl' and to have the number one, two and three, top selling reggae singles on the iTune's Reggae charts is a good feeling" says Shaggy.

The second top selling single on this weeks iTunes reggae chart is one of Shaggy hits 'It Wasn't Me' and the third top selling reggae single is 'Angel' feat Rayvon both off his album Hot Shot.

Aidonia Records Another Hit - "Grip Mi" In Martinique - @AidoniaJop

Aidonia_Martinique.jpgProlific dancehall lyricist Aidonia recently recorded a new hit song "Grip Mi" that has bolstered his image as being one of the baddest dancehall lyricist.

The deejay was in Martinique for a show when he was approached by producer Gilles Boulard from Dons Music Label, with three rhythms to choose from. Aidonia immediately chose one and by an hour time the song was voiced in studio. "While Aidonia was in studio recording the producer had a camera man filming and after he completed the song the camera man proceeded to capture moments of Aidonia and our team throughout our stay in Martinique. The footages were edited and was used as a promotional video for the song on Youtube" says Aidonia's Manager Lavarcam Lawrence.

Already the song has been doing exceptionally well in the French and English speaking Caribbean. The song has also been added to UK's disc jocks Natty B - Choice FM playlist, Robbo Ranks- BBC1xxtra and Sir Dj Corey - Flames Radio/BBC1xxtra playlist. In Jamaica the song was released like two weeks ago and already disc jocks have been declaring "Grip Mi" to be Aidonia's next hit. Disc jock Johnny Khool on his "Wanted Thursday" programme on ZipFM said "Aidonia look like you find another hit with "Grip Mi".

Konshens_subkonshus_european_tour.jpgInternational dancehall artist Konshens has just wrapped of his three week European tour. Starting out in Germany Konshens was immediately summoned to band rehearsal to begin his preparation for RUHR Reggae Summer Festival.

Konshens has appeared on RUHR Reggae Summer Festival before, but this time he was one of the headline acts. With over 10,000 people jumping and embracing every song performed by Konshens, it was evident to Konshens and dancehall fans that 'dancehall nuh mash up at all' and Konshens is a force to reckon with. Immediately following his performance Konshens took to social media to voice his opinion on a great show in Germany and the recent attempts for Jamaica to implement numerous dance-hall bans.

"See dance-hall yah weh dem say dead!

It was now off to Amsterdam and Konshens had his sold out crowd bubbling, walking and whining, and siddung. His fans also took the time out to show their love for Konshens as one fan tattooed the lyrics to his song 'Realest'. Just another confirmation that dance-hall music continues to be embraced on a global level.

Dancehall Duchess Tiana Sizzles with New Single, "Touch Like The World Ago End" - @Tianamusic @FoxFuse

Single is Now Available Worldwide from FOX FUSE

Tiana_Fuck_Touch_Like_The_World_Ago_End_itunes.jpgNew York, NY (FOX FUSE) - "Dancehall Duchess" Tiana makes a splash with the release of her new smash, "Touch Like The World Ago End," an aggressive, sexy anthem for the ladies. The single was released on July 2, 2013 in both clean and explicit versions, and is now available worldwide from FOX FUSE. Born Danielle Shand in St. Mary, Jamaica, Tiana has been marking her territory in dancehall music ever since she emerged on the scene in 2009, and now takes her sounds worldwide, recently completing her first European tour.

This new single is the latest card in Tiana's bountiful hand, as she aims to break through to the global audience as the premier female dancehall artist today."'Touch Like The World Ago End' is definitely one of my favorite songs, I just love the vibe and the energy I get from the audience whenever I perform it live," reveals Tiana. "It's the first time I have performed a song that is unreleased to the public but it always seems to 'tun-up di vibes' and make the ladies dance like crazy. This repeatedly happens on every show that I have performed this song, especially while I was on tour in Europe." Tiana just returned to Jamaica, following an 11-show European tour that included stops in Germany, Italy, Austria, and The Netherlands.

The beat was created and produced by France-based production house WAWA Music alongside OutARoad, providing Tiana with the proper ammunition to decimate dancehalls and airwaves, with her suggestive lyrical missives and strong, sultry delivery. "As one of the producers of this amazing track, I know this song will forever be an anthem and one that will be discussed by many," states Carlington Wilmot, head of OutARoad and Tiana's manager. "I know this song will certainly do a lot for Tiana's already budding career, as this is a topic that has never been explored in this manner nor by any other dancehall artists before her."

Collaborating with some of the biggest artists and producers in dancehall music,Tiana has become a spokesperson for her generation, calling out what she felt was a "sexist" music industry in Jamaica, as she strives to see females earn similar recognition to their male counterparts. Her profound stance and statements have garnered mass media attention, as well as support from her female colleagues within the industry. With her local and international popularity growing consistently, Tiana is indeed earning her ranking as the "Princess of Dancehall."

Also to note is that this year offers largest amount of sectional prizes in the pageant's 37 year history: eight - up from seven.

'Most Sociable' is the competition's most recent sectional prize. It takes into consideration the large role that social media plays in marketing. The Suzuki MJW Organizing Committee intends for the move to assist with Brand Jamaica recognition on a global scale.

Laura Butler, Franchise Holder of the pageant states "The move is in keeping with the impact social media has on the world. We (MJW) hope that our aggressive move to use this medium will enhance the pageant while promoting Brand Jamaica. We encourage other business models to take advantage of the power of social media."

Jamie Ranston, Director of Interactive Marketing at Shift Interactive - partner of pageant's latest award - says "Generation Y is all about social media. It is not a fad as many believe, but rather a fundamental SHIFT in the way we communicate. The introduction of this new sectional prize will reward the contestant who is forward thinking."

Both Rutine and Fiona voiced excellent materials that will definitely be the birth of a new beginning for the ladies.

L3 Magazine - June Issue ft. Leftside Dr. Evil - @Leftsidedrevil

Left_side_L3_Magazine.jpgThe summer season is upon us, and L3 Magazine's front cover feature, Leftside Dr. Evil gives us a lot to talk about! Natasha Von Castle met up with the artist while in Toronto, and the multi talented producer and artist allowed her to go in depth as she explored how he got his start in music, and what it felt to work with legends Gregory Isaac, Dennis Brown and John Holt from such a young age. Question: do you think about Gregory and Dennis when you make music today?

Beyond that, Leftside shares his feelings on producing some of the most significant riddims of our times, as well as his work with Don Corleon and Elephant Man on the famous song "Pon the River." Of all the instruments Leftside could specialize in, he chose the drums. Where did he get his first set of drums?! That answer led to a great story and one that will have readers talking for some time!

Dancehall artist Chedda took some time off and is back with a more developed sound. Tricia 'ZJ Sparks' Spence sat down with the artist and asked about some of the lessons he's learned so far. His answer in short is 'experience teaches wisdom' which is a refreshing surprise from an artist just touching his 20's.

Extending her contribution, Tricia gives us an exclusive look at producer Askelle who is the creator of several hit Dancehall riddims associated to famous producers. What makes Askelle's story significant is his fight to receive credit for his work and the fact that he is visually impaired. This is a man who truly sees music.

Back To Me @JesseGiddings & @Tianamusic Now Available on iTunes Canada

CLICK HERE To Watch Back To Me Official Video

Jesse_Giddings_Tiana_Back_To_Me_itunes_Canada.jpg

TORONTO, CANADA,: Responding to nationwide demand from his Canadian fan base, pop star Jesse Giddings released his new single, "Back To Me," on iTunes Canada.

The single was originally released April 2, 2013 on iTunes in the United States, but was not available in Canada. Many of Giddings' Canadian fans became excited about the song after hearing it on the radio, which prompted Giddings to release the single Thursday, June 6, 2013 on iTunes Canada.

The song - influenced by Celine Dion's hit, "It's All Coming Back To Me Now," - was produced by Kemar 'Flava' McGregor, and features a guest appearance from Jamaican dancehall vocalist Tiana.
McGregor said "Back To Me" attracted a passionate following on internet social media during the past two months -- enough to create anticipation among pop-music lovers within Jesse Giddings' Canadian homeland.

"Canadian fans wanted the song to be released," said McGregor. "It was on the radio and it was getting a lot of buzz, but it wasn't available for sale in Canada. People were talking about it on their Twitter pages, and on their Facebook pages, because Jesse Giddings is very popular in Canada. His fans were saying things like: 'This is going to be my summer jam,' 'I could play this song all day,' and they were asking, 'When will the song be available in Canada?' We knew we had to release the song in Canada for the sake of Jesse's fans."

Dancehall Pioneer Yellowman Reveals Video Clip from his 2CD/DVD Anthology Entitled Young, Gifted & Yellow

Yellow_Man_back_in_the_days.jpgThis week, 17 North Parade will unlock its vaults once again to unveil the latest Reggae Anthology: Yellowman's Young, Gifted & Yellow, from the undisputed king of dancehall. Jamaica's first dancehall superstar Yellowman ushered in a new era in reggae music. His early '80s success brought the popularity of toasting (reggae's equivalent of rapping) to a new level and helped establish dancehall as the wave of the future.

His powerful 2CD/DVD anthology collection features 40 fully remastered essential tracks of both classic and obscure material throughout Yellowman's prolific career. As an added bonus, the deluxe package will include thorough liner notes written by reggae historian Noel Hawkes and a 25-minute DVD of Yellowman's 1988 electrifying live performance at Jamaica's longstanding annual music festival Sunsplash.

Check out this throw back performance of Yellowman - LIVE at Reggae Sunsplash '88 at the link below.

Guinness Eyeing Dealerships for Car Competition

Guinness_Vin_Diesel_competition.jpg

With a grand motor revving entrance no less spectacular than in a Vin Diesel movie, Guinness is to showcase some of Jamaica's hottest cars at three mass event experiences, as well as select venues on its three-month, 12-bar tour across Jamaica.

The organisers have confirmed preparation to engage some of Jamaica's top car dealerships to send their hottest rides to the competition events, and win the chance to showcase their winning entries at the grand, bold, and exceptional 30ft high entrance at the mass events, and also the bar tours.

"With Jamaica not short of top-of-the-line cars such as Audi, Honda, Mazda, Subaru, MBW, Mercedes, etc., we are soliciting partnerships with premium car dealerships in Jamaica, to join the competition so as to add the aspiration mood for the Guinness man who is always seeking MORE," Says Brand Manager at Red Stripe, Racquel Nevins.

According to her, the show of beautiful bodies, wheels and engine power in the highly anticipated car competition, will earn someone the right to be distinguished with his favourite car, much like the pride Guinness wants to regain in its man with his favourite drink, which is the very reason for hosting the marathon bar parties and mass events.

Anniversary of classic Bob Marley album, 'Kaya' marked with release of deluxe edition

By M. Jodee
OutAroad.com Writer

Follower Me On Twitter @MarcParc1

Bob_Marley_Kaya_Wailers_Album_Deluxe.jpgIt has now been 35 years since "Kaya," the legendary album from universally-regarded Reggae icons, Bob Marley and The Wailers was released and now, fans can enjoy it in a whole new light as a deluxe edition of the compilation has been released.

On Tuesday, Universal Music Enterprises released "Kaya: 35th Anniversary Deluxe Edition," a double album featuring 24 re-mastered tracks, including all 10 songs from the original version released in 1978 by Island Records. An online release party as well as a live performance by Bob Marley's son and Grammy-winning Reggae star, Ziggy Marley from Los Angeles' Roxy Theatre have been scheduled to mark the occasion.

The original version of "Kaya," released in March 1978 by Island Records features hits such as "Is This Love," "Sun Is Shining," "Time Will Tell," and "Satisfy My Soul." The deluxe version will feature a newer version of Marley's classic track, "Smile Jamaica," as well a previously unreleased live concert: Live at Ahoy Hallen, a concert he and The Wailers performed in Rotterdam, Holland in 1978.

Kaya's release came around the time of Marley's One Love peace concert, which was organized as a means of easing high political tensions between leaders and supporters of the People's National Party (PNP) and Jamaica Labour Party (JLP). The album earned a spot on the top five of the United Kingdom's album chart.

Tiana kicks off first European tour this weekend

Tiana_tour_europe.jpg

As she looks to strengthen her already wide-ranging fan base, the Dancehall Duchess, Tiana will kick start her biggest series of shows to date as she is set to begin her first ever European tour on April 13.

After leaving the island Wednesday, Tiana is expected to perform her first show on the world's largest continent in Vienna, Austria. The show will feature other female deejays from around the world, including Lady Louise from Sweden, Aisha Bee from Hungary and DJ Mad Betty from Italy.

According to the Dancehall Duchess its not just an experience for her but also the perfect opportunity to build a bigger fan base. She also said, "I am really feeling good about this tour as its my first time travelling to Europe... I also want to say thanks to the Promoters of the Tour I-motion Sound for the hard work they have done behind the scenes... alongside Carlington my manger and Chris Rock.

Other key dates on this highly anticipated tour include her April 27 show in Dortmund, Germany and The Hague, Netherlands on April 29, with two shows in Italy on May 4 in Rome and May 11 in Catanzaro. The Dancehall Duchess Tiana will also be in Munich, along with a few more pending shows.

Following her Euro-trip, the Dem a Bawl singer will head to Canada for a pair of shows and will also be in the island of St. Maarten for a show June 1st.

2013 has been all about gauging different audiences worldwide for Tiana, as evidenced by her collaboration with Canadian singer and songwriter, Jesse Giddings for the single, Back To Me. The pop-reggae single, influenced by Celine Dion's classic, It's All Coming Back To Me Now, was officially released via iTunes on April 2 and produced by veteran hit-maker, Kemar 'Flava' McGregor.

Additionally, the Duchess was named as Kenya's female artist of the year at the Kingston 10 Awards and has been releasing singles to maintain her relevance within the local scene with songs such as Bruk Pocket Bwoy produced by Elvis of So Unique Records... Dutty Bwoy(Wutliss Bwoy) produced by Seani B from BBC Radio 1Xtra and Freaky Man, a remix of Vybz Kartel's Freaky Gyal (Part 3).

Canadian Pop-Star Jesse Giddings Releases New Single, ft Dancehall Singer Tiana

Tiana_Jesse_Giddings_Back_To_Me_photo.jpg

Canadian pop singer Jesse Giddings has released a new single, titled "Back To Me," Tuesday, April 2, 2013 on iTunes.

Giddings' new single - influenced by the Celine Dion hit, "It's All Coming Back To Me Now," - was produced by Kemar 'Flava' McGregor, and features a guest appearance from Jamaican dancehall vocalist Tiana aka the Dancehall Duchess.

Recent trends have placed Canada at the epicenter of the world's modern pop-music industry, as the nation has launched a healthy percentage of rock, pop and jazz icons into international stardom. And although Giddings possesses an impressive Canadian music resume - which includes stints as a mainstream television personality, rock music promoter and fashion model - he said it was actually his love of Jamaican music that most influenced the Caribbean style employed on "Back To Me."

"It was inspired by the ideas, creativity, love and passion of Jamaica that I grew up watching and reading about from afar," said Giddings. "It was always a dream of mine to spend time in Jamaica, and this song allowed me that opportunity, as I spent most of January of this year shooting the music video for this single in and around Kingston. Of course, I threw a little of my Canadian heritage and inspiration into the song with the feature of some of Celine Dion's lyrics from her hit, 'It's All Coming Back To Me Now,' from 1996."

Giddings' single was produced in conjunction with McGregor's new pop skank-riddim style, which has already created buzz within Canada's mainstream music scene (one of McGregor's pop-reggae songs recently secured a 2013 JUNO Award nomination). It was precisely this new radio-friendly aspect of McGregor's pop style that attracted guest singer Tiana to the project.

"The moment I heard this song, I fell in love with the track," said Tiana. "Right away, I definitely knew I had to give it a smooth reggae vibe, instead of the usual hardcore dancehall style. The lyrics were intentionally written to give you that happy feeling and the desire of wanting to have someone.'Back To Me' will definitely be a favorite among teenagers."

Downsound CEO Josef Bogdanovich & Ninja plan to make history

CLICK HERE to watch Dweet Video With Ninja Man & Specialist

Ninja_Man_Josef_Bogdanovic.jpg

Downsound Records CEO Josef Bogdanovich believes his company is on a path to create history in dancehall music. He recently signed iconic clash artiste Desmond Ballentine, popularly known as Ninja Man, to his label.

Though many people might think Ninja Man is past his best musically, Bogdanovich is convinced that Ninja Man still has a lot to offer dancehall music.

"This guy is a living legend, he's one of the greatest artistes ever and I certainly think he has a lot to offer to this generation of dancehall fans. He's one of the greatest dancehall acts ever, he has a lot of history behind his name and Downsound plans to make some more with him, you'll see."

Ninja Man, who began his career in the late 1980s, is known for his famous clashes at Sting with the likes of other dancehall luminaries like Shabba Ranks and Super Cat. The self-styled bad boy of dancehall music has remained a prominent fixture on the local music landscape despite his many run-ins with the law over the years.

He recently declared that he has resigned from clashing to focus on the rebuilding of his recording career and the upliftment of dancehall music.
"Mi done do 26 years as the champion of clashing, mi a resign wid mi title like Lennox Lewis, mi do enough, mi a lef it gi KipRich. Mi teach him how fi clash and right off deejay a sting, a fi him time now fi reign and pass on the knowledge to a next youth. Now mi a focus pon mi career wid Downsound," said Ninja Man.

Elektracuted! Prepare to be shocked

TAKE A LISTEN BY CLICKING ON THE LINK BELOW
https://soundcloud.com/khoolray/elektracuted-mixtape-by-zj

Elektra_Mixtape_I_Just_Got_Elekracuted.jpgWhat is it that makes this mix-tape from sassy Zip jock, Elektra such a massive hit?

Well, for starters, the name itself, Elektracuted - a clever play on words - instantly tickles the interest and promises much. Pumping with energy, Elektracuted does exactly what a mix-tape is supposed to do - keep the listener interested from start to finish with a slew of songs that show the dexterity and musical knowledge of the person at the control of the wheels of steel.

In the intro, DJ Wah Wah, calls Elektracuted "di baddest mixtape ever" and we delightfully agree. ZJ Elektra rolls out the 'baddest' singers, deejays and rappers, from Beres Hammond to Bounty Killer to Drake to I-Octane, Tarrus Riley, Spragga Benz, Ce'cile, Rihanna, Rick Ross, Kartel, Mavado, Lil Wayne, Chris Martin, Konshens and more. She chooses songs which see the artistes exploring topics such as love, friendship, cheating, badmind and jealousy.

To get her point across, Elektra uses reggae, dancehall and rap as she connects with her listeners of all ages, while obviously having fun and keeping the vibe upbeat. She manages to sound so lively that one could easily pop the CD into a player, turn up the volume and get the party started. And, just when you think it can't get any better, Elektracuted turns up the voltage and gets real grass-roots with a herb segment that is so smoking hot that it wouldn't be a shock to see the actual CD start burning. (La-la-la-lighter! Lighter!)

Richard_Roache_Micheal_Thompson_Gary_Samuels.jpg

In the fast pace world of dancehall riddims, it's easy to get lost in a musical haze. Riddims come and go as fast as the blink of an eye, and great music can get lost in the midst. Coming from an era where one took time to enjoy and savor the music, Digital Vibez longs for a return to one of dancehall favorite eras, the 90's. Although Digital Vibez Entertainment is fairly new as a unit, two of its members are veterans in the dancehall and reggae arena.

Digital Vibes Entertainment consists of veteran producer and manager Richard "Digital One" Roache and chart topping Billboard Engineer, Musician, Producer and Song Writer Gary "Shanguly" Samuels and Michael "MadVibez" Thompson. All three united to bring back the vibes.

Gary "Shanguly" Samuels has worked on Sean Pauls Multi Platinum album "Dutty Rock" that won the Grammy For Best Reggae Album, and received acclaimed once more with Beenie Man's Art & Life Album which received a Grammy that year for Best Reggae Album. Shanguly resume consists of some of reggae and dancehall biggest names, he also toured with Beenie Man, Jah Cure, Luciano and Shabba Ranks just to name a few.

Richard "Digital One" Roache career goes back to legendary King Jammys recording studio and downsound records where he started off as marketing and pr agent. He then made his mark working for Jamaica's biggest booking agency "Solid Agency" and moved on to Juke Boxx production where he is to this day road manager for Busy Signal. "Roache Digital One" first released production was in 2002 with the Scanner Riddim that was also made by Shanguly, which lead the charts with hit single "Up To Di Time by Vybez Kartel. His impressive resume is extensive and stands on it's own merits.

"This comes at an opportune time for me, as I am two weeks away from taking up a permanent position on radio elsewhere. Squeeze and myself go way back and I have emceed several concerts that he has promoted in the past. So when he reached out to me, I had no difficulty accepting his offer. I intend to use this new platform to connect with all my Caribbean and American peeps, keeping them informed, educated and entertained."

His very first scheduled guest on Linkup Radio will be Erik who recently starred in the popular VW Super Bowl commercial that went viral days before it debuted on Super Bowl Sunday.

Jamaica Jazz and Blues 2013 Blazes

Jazz_and_blues_festival_2013_concert.jpg

Montego Bay, Jamaica: The Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival 2013 ended on a dynamic note with a steady climax of Jazz, reggae and R&B performances. The three day Festival held at the Trelawny Multipurpose Stadium from January 24-26 highlighted the diversity of performers that make Jamaica Jazz and Blues a must see event.

Mary J. Blige brought the second night of Jamaica Jazz and Blues 2013 to a high energy close. From her dramatic monologue which provided the intro to her set, Ms. Blige sent the night into overdrive, blasting off with Aint Nobody before delving into hits such as Family Affair, Not Gon' Cry, I'm Going Down and No More Drama. She had the audience singing and dancing along.

"Mary Blige mi seh!" yelled one excited fan, underscoring his pleasure at her dramatic, engaging performance. Ms. Blige ended her set with the haunting Love No Limit.

Ms. Blige's high energy close was a beautiful contrast to the laid back yet stirring performance of Michael Bolton who preceded her to the stage. Exultant screams filled the night air from the opening strains of Mr. Bolton's Soul Provider as the audience reveled in his sultry tones. By the end of his set Mr. Bolton proved that he remained a reigning member of romantic soul royalty as he pulled one mega hit after another from his massive repertoire.

Jamaica_Jazz_and_blues_2013.jpg

Montego Bay, Jamaica; The curtains of night one of the JAMAICA Jazz and Blues 2013 closed with an electrifying performance by the mighty veterans Third World at the Trelawny Multi-purpose Stadium. Reggae lovers rocked the night away to oldies but goodies from Fab 5, Eric Donaldson, Leroy Sibbles, Admiral Bailey, Ernie Smith and Pluto Shervington who kicked off the reggae dance party in celebration of over four decades of reggae music.

The cadre of diverse performances kept the energy level up all night long.

Chaka Demus and Pliers was a crowd favourite and had their fans belting out Murder She Wrote but it was Coco Tea that had them on their feet as they sang and danced to hit after hit. She Loves Me Now resonated with the crowd, who urged him to sing on as they shouted in unison "Gwaan Coco Tea".

Asoya Barrett, a devoted patron and die-hard Coco Tea fan says she enjoyed her first night at Jazz. "I've danced, I've sweat and I am not yet tired. The performances have been excellent," she said.

Tanya Stephens delivers at spectacular performance at "Woman Is Boss" in Brooklyn

Tanya_Stephens_Woman_is_boss_Brooklyn_New%20York.jpg

Legendary Jamaican Songstress Tanya Stephens thrilled her fans with a "Boss" of a performance on December 24, 2012 at the "Woman is Boss" show at the Woodbine Ballroom, Brooklyn NY. The show also featured the true Empress "Nadine Queen", Princess Menen, Thunder Bolt and Noah Di Youth with Di Powa.

The night began with a high energy performance by Thunder Bolt and Noah Di Youth with Di Powa. Thunder Bolt was a popular Jamaican music group in the 70's to 80's who put out the "Born Jamaican" Album which was a popular hit at that time. The vibes was also set by Noah Di Youth with Di Powa which is a Hip Hop Reggae and R&B artiste from Brooklyn. The next act for the night was Nadine Queen who thrilled the audience with a powerful cover of Adele’s’ “Someone like You and “So much Trouble” and “I Believe” which was well received by the audience. This act was then supported by a spirited performance by the youthful and self-confident Ghanaian born artiste Princess Menen who raised two of her hit songs “Mi Ready” and “Dem No Genuine”. The audience rocked to the beats of her melodious tones as they sang along to her conscious lyrics.

The crowd was now in high spirits by all the acts of the talented performances of the night and was now anticipating the “return” of Tanya Stephens to the stage. Tanya Stephens is no new name to the Jamaican music scene, having been around since the early 90s and continues to make hits today. Pandemonium broke loose as the talented vocalist made her way to the stage. Tanya hit the stage with her famous song on the “Joy Riddim”, “Yuh Nuh Ready Fi Dis Yet” (which was the song that launched her music career). Tanya is known for popular hits like : "Goggle", "Turn The Other Cheek" "Boom Wuk", "Handle The Ride", "Big Heavy Gal", "Too Hype", "What A Day", "Draw Fi Mi Finger", a new song "Weather Changes" "Pon De Corner", "Can't Breathe", "After You", "The Truth", "Do You Still Care", "These Streets", Tanya ended her set with "It's A Pity". With such a revolting performance she could not leave the stage with her little over one hour performance, as the D.j requested for her to do one more of her mega hit "119" and from the loud reaction of audience, she could not leave without doing so, they were not ready for Tanya to leave, before she did that song.

Macka Diamond Runs From Clash

Spice_sting_donkey_2013.jpgThe much anticipated clash between Spice and Macka Diamond at this year's Sting, failed to materialize last night after veteran artiste, Macka Diamond refused to clash, although present at the venue.

Upon entering the Jamworld stage in St. Catherine, Spice quickly summoned Macka Diamond, however, after numerous calls the deejay failed to take the stage. Spice then called out "Farmer Joe" and a donkey, who she referred to as Macka's twin and went into singing Who Let Out The Donkey, her response to Macka Diamond's previous clash singles.

During the performance, Spice yet again called for Macka Diamond to take the stage, but she was not forthcoming. A younger deejay tried to make her way to the stage to take on the lyrical giant, but Spice was not having it and the young deejay was silenced and relegated to the side of the stage.

Sizzla, Busy Signal shine at drama-filled STING 2012

By Marc Parc
OutAroad.com Writer

In the New Living Translation version of the Bible, John 1:5 reads, "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it." Perhaps this enlightening quote from scripture sums up STING 2012 in a nutshell: A night filled with few stellar performances standing out above the drama and sub-standard efforts that dominated Dancehall's biggest stage show.

STING 2012 was hyped in recent weeks as a revamped stage show focusing on strong performances, unearthing more young talent and an adjusted clash format. Though the show left a somewhat disappointing taste in the minds of hardcore Dancehall fans, some noteworthy acts and less recognizable names added flavor to an event that has lost some taste in recent years.
After a number of unknown acts and a clash of the bands dominated the first few hours of STING, it took a couple of veterans to finally put life into the show; primarily Wickaman, who delivered a spirited performance while honoring his long-time friend and fellow deejay, Captain Barkey, delving into their catalogue of hits from the 90s and 2000s.

Fellow veteran, Lady G proved she still has gas left in the tank while comedic entertainer Food Kartel also engaged the crowd by 'cooking' some of this year's biggest hits like Uncle Demon (Shook) and many others.

Khago set to blaze the Christmas Extravaganza stage on Christmas Night

khago_downsound_records.jpg

Dancehall star Khago is one of the headline acts that will perform under the 'Still Rules' theme on GT Taylor's Christmas Extravaganza stage show on the 25th of December, 2012.

Khago burst onto the scene in 2008 with the hit single titled Cant Cool, since then he consistently churned out hit after hit. In a very short time he has managed to make quite an impression on dancehall fans globally with his catchy dancehall tunes and his high energy stage performances.

Like most top dancehall artistes Khago who is viewed by many as a top contender for the King of the Dancehall title, has also had his fair share of controversy. Still fresh in the memories of dancehall fans is his beef with one time foe now turned friend I-Octane and most recently Sizzla.

However the hard-hitting deejay has put all that behind him and is focusing solely on building is name into an international brand under the guidance of Downsound Records CEO Josef Bandonovich.

Sean Paul heads final nominations list for Reggae Grammy

sean_paul_remix_pitbull.jpgInternationally-acclaimed entertainer, Sean Paul will be gunning for yet another Grammy award when music's most celebrated show takes place next February in Los Angeles.

The Got 2 Luv U singer's fifth album, Tomahawk Technique was selected on Wednesday as one of five finalists for the Best Reggae Album Grammy. It's the fourth time that Sean Paul has been nominated for the prestigious honor as previous albums like The Trinity (2006) and Imperial Blaze (2010) have also been selected by The Academy.

Sean Paul previously tasted success at the 2004 Grammys when his multi-platinum CD, Duty Rock was named Best Reggae Album. Should the highly-acclaimed artiste prevail once again in two months, he'll become the sixth act to capture the accolade.

Like Sean Paul, a number of Reggae veterans will be vying for a second success at the Grammy Awards. Once such crooner, Jimmy Cliff seeks to taste success for the first time since 1986 (Cliff Hanger) as his latest project, The Rebirth is also a finalist in the Best Reggae Album category. Cliff's album has been praised by many industry insiders given its authentic, Roots Reggae sound.

"Rock Of My Life," "Be My Comforter" and "Sunny Day" are classic gospel offerings, while tracks like "Let Me Be The One" serves up more crossover appeal with its R&B, lover's rock allure.

Popcaan_europe_tour_photo.jpg

Dancehall artiste, Popcaan, has a very busy season ahead as he prepares to debut recently shot music videos, fulfills engagements both overseas and at home, while putting in some quality time in studio on his first album project.

The artiste, who has made the Caribbean his home this year, will quite appropriately spend Christmas in Guyana where he is scheduled to perform on December 25. With many of his songs doing exceptionally well on that mainland territory, Popcaan is definitely the 'Ravin' King’ in Guyana, a country which holds a special place in his heart.

"The people are so friendly ….it feels just like home. The fans there have a special place in their heart for me," he said as he pulled out his brightest smile.

Of course, fans at home will not be left out and Papi, as he is affectionately called, is set to make a supreme performance on what is dubbed the greatest one-night reggae/dancehall show on earth - Sting. The annual December 26 treat is shaping up to be quite an occasion this year and Popcaan is good and ready. He has an arsenal of hit songs, old and current, which cater to both the girls who love to gyrate and his 'rude bwoy' fans who see Popcaan as their role model and mentor.

Popcaan popping with energy

Popcaan_Europe_ravin_partyshot_jamaica.jpg

Sold-out tours, hot new singles and intense adoration from his fans are the elements that have combined to keep acclaimed entertainer, Popcaan a main contender in the fiery furnace of dancehall juggling. Not only has he come to terms with a lot of the drama that surrounded his meteoric rise in the dancehall, Popcaan is intent on making it work for him.

Positioned as an artiste whose versatility sees him locking the town with ultra bad bwoy lyrics, while at the same time playing the role of the ultimate ladies man, as he belts out "Mi a the only man she want", Popcaan is certainly enjoying the best of both worlds. It is little wonder that 2012 has seen him hitch his wagon to a star as he traverses the globe -- Europe, the Caribbean and Canada -- representing for dancehall as one of Jamaica's proudest ambassadors.

“The response from countries outside of Jamaica has been awesome," Popcaan says, still sounding a bit dazed by it all. "When I go to the Caribbean, the fans there know every song word-for-word. They expect to hear all the songs in my catalogue and they don’t want one verse either, they demand the entire song… and I am only too happy to sing it all for them," declares the MOBO nominated artiste.

"He said the creative directors putting the project together were huge fans of Mavado and would love to have him provide the vocals for the campaign. Genius sent us the beat, I spoke with the ad agency about direction and they said they wanted Mavado to just do his thing. Mavado recorded "Di Gyal Dem" at Platinum Sounds in New York and the ad agency loved it. Its a huge look for Mavado, Stephen and for Dancehall to be at the forefront of such a huge commercial campaign and hopefully helps to break another barrier."

Prior to creating their own routine the ladies were given a two minute preview of what a hardcore dancehall routine should look like by a few Jamaican dancers. Some key pointers were given to the models teaching them how to incorporate the 'in your face' 'dancehall attitude' into their routine.

Konshens critiqued the models and looked for the pair who best exemplified 'dancehall swagger'. He selected the winners, who received $3000.00 worth of jewelry from designer Bianca Bartley of 'Peace-is of Bianca'.
