Devin Di Dakta Drops Visuals Behind 'Pretty Pretty'


A few months ago the Dancehall fraternity  was sent into a wave of renaissance after Devin Di Dakta dropped his '90s feel' track, 'Pretty Pretty'.

The track comes to us as a part of  Romieikon's 'Beat Zinc Fence' rhythm compilation  which pays homage to the golden era of Dancehall music.

Upon the single's release, Devin Di Dakta earned himself two major  cover features from Pandora to follow up with charting positions in thirty countries.

"The idea to release a rhythm inspired by old school Dancehall was genius so when Romieikon sent me the beat I immediately got inspired to drop a song for the ladies. This project took time and consistency and I am thankful for everyone who continues to make Pretty Pretty a success" Shared Devin.

Based on the traction the single has gained, Devin Di Dakta opted to shoot and release the visuals for the track.

The video features Jamaica's finest, Dance Expressionz, as they embody the vibrations of the track through their dance and attire.

When the producer, Romieikon, was asked about the success of the track he shared;

"This entire production has proven that with the right strategy success can be attained on any level. When this compilation was first thought of, I decided to use young artistes  to show music lovers that the younger generation is capable of diversity while proving to them that the foundation of Dancehall still lives contrary to their beliefs. Pretty Pretty has definitely made its mark in several countries worldwide and I am grateful that we could make such an impact"

While Devin Di Dakta continues to bask in the success of his track, he shares that the work continues as he and his team are currently putting together his album.

Jah Cure drops new video "You Cant See My Soul" Official lyric video



Jah Cure recently released a track entitled 
"You Can't See My Soul" 
It is prompting people to call out similarities 
with the song and incidents in the singer's past years, 
leading up to his most recent accusations. 

The song starts off by saying:

You can see my clothes
but you can't see my soul
Let he who is without sin,
cast the first stone
He who feels it knows

Other parts of the song alludes to earlier life and says

Grew up in a struggle life
Had to realize,
I could save myself
but I couldn't be somebody else


Watch the video here and see for yourself


(Media: MJ Ent )

In the midst of his current trial - no pun intended - and tribulation, Jah Cure is now sharing the lyric video for his song featured on the recently released Rock All Riddim. The tune is titled You Can't See My Soul, and after carefully listening to the words the consensus among several of his fans and supporters is that he seems to be struggling with a lot of demons. 

The Rock All Riddim, which is produced by Reggae Vibes Music, was released at the end of August. This means that Jah Cure's song would have been written and recorded long before that date, giving the production team sufficient time to mix and master it. However, the lyrics in the song gives the impression that it was authored after his arrest in the Netherlands. 

For those not familiar with the story; the beloved reggae singer is currently facing charges on the primary suspicion of attempted murder, as well as attempted manslaughter and aggravated assault after an altercation with a promoter in Amsterdam at the beginning of October. 

However, "Let he without sin cast the first stone." These are words uttered by Jah Cure in You Can't See My Soul. 

With the lyric video now out on YouTube it is becoming apparent that despite his difficult upbringing Jah Cure has been trying - challenging as it maybe - to become a better man. Our only hope is that his arrest in Europe does not deter that.

Tommy Lee Sparta and His Son Skirdle Sparta, Link up for First Official Single/Video Dior Kicks

 

Tommy Lee Sparta and His Son Skirdle Sparta, Link up for First Official Single/Video Dior Kicks

The first official collaboration between dancehall staple and icon Tommy Lee Sparta and his son the newcomer Skirdle Sparta is the hot single Dior Kicks. Tommy Lee has long since unearthed and made into his own, a dark, Jamaican punk iconography that gives way to his performance of the various characters in his ensemble. Skirdle Sparta, with this new upbeat, electro dancehall vibe, Dior Kicks adds more dimensions to the signature sonic arrangements of his father’s niche. This single is a high energy banger meant for party setting, but also perfect for radio airplay and is set to premiere this friday October 8th 2021.

Tommy Lee burst onto the music scene in 2008 after the premier of his first single and subsequent performances in his home town Flankers, Mobay. Eventually, Vybz Kartel discovered his immense talent and welcomed him into the Portmore Empire. Since then Tommy has blazed his own trail in dancehall music, going on to create hits like Warn Dem, Psycho, Soul Reaper, Spartan Soldier, Hard Ears, Blessings, Redemption Song and more. Skirdle Sparta embraces his father’s legacy by making it his own and adding a unique perspective and new flows that bring more depth and scale to the Spartan empire. This collaboration also signifies a passing of the baton to the next generation of artists who have a different vision of the future.

Tommy Lee Sparta is the best Dancehall artist in the world right now, in my humble opinion. The one thing I respect the most about Tommy is that he speaks from his heart on his records. He is unwavering, unafraid, and will never back down from the truth in his lyrical approach. His honesty and vulnerability are what sets Tommy apart from any other artist. I strongly feel that this is what translates with people all over the world, who have been in similar situations but are afraid to say what is on their minds. So when I got the opportunity to work with Tommy on his forthcoming single “Dior Kicks”, I felt humbled because I had already been a huge fan of his work. Add Tommy’s son to the mix, and Dior Kicks became a high-energy progressive dancehall record with a modern flare. Its uptempo vibrant feel and emotionally driven lyrical content will have people wanting to move their bodies to the rhythmic Drums and style of Dancehall. This record has a sound that crosses over from dancehall to straight-ahead urban mainstream. Stay tuned in, because there is a lot more to come…

Dior Kicks a lighthearted but entertaining celebration of the magnetism that comes with the lifestyle of being an artist. Something Tommy Lee is far from a stranger to, and though young Skirdle is not quite as experienced as his father, he manages to relate in a real way that shines on this track. It’s a great track, a great symbolic moment for dancehall and a great father son interaction that we don’t get often enough in dancehall. It speaks to the ability of dancehall artistry to transcend generation, the passage of time and to still be relevant in all phases of the Jamaican experience.
