Today I have a new reggae song on the scene, “Punchinella” by Pentateuch Movement. I appreciate the authentic ‘rootsy’ sound of the riddim. In the song he’s telling Punchinella what he has to offer, some reasons she should accept his love. Though, Punchinella has her sights set on someone else. Take a listen to Punchinella, tell me what you think in the comments below!

*Drum rolls* Today we have something new from Royal Blu. It wasn’t in the early morning that he released this song but it had your girl wishing that it was. Royal Blu gave us “Early Morning” a while back, it has been on my list. Somehow it came up the perfect time, we’re near the end of the hurricane season but it has been raining almost every single day since the beginning of October; this song makes me feel like it’s raining, it is just soothing. In this track he croons to his lover, telling her how much he needs her, reveling in their love. Big up Dj Densen differently, he produced the track, I love the rhythm. Take a listen to Early Morning by Royal Blu.

I’m here to represent for the group of people who sit and wait for Protoje to bless the universe with new music; he never disappoints. Last week Proto dropped “Truths and Rights” featuring Mortimer and it took my Twitter timeline by storm, with good reason. The song was produced by Winta James, and I’m not being biased when I say him have the formula… the rhythms from him are good and unique.
Truths and Rights speaks up for the youths in society… the future of the country. As well as the evident inequality that befalls the masses. They encourage us to think keenly about the choices we make in life, and inject that a little love can go a long way.
“When all the youths need is a chance, not a bly“
I thought strongly about typing out the entire second verse, for you to see why I am so moved by this song. There’s so much wrong in society, and people need to hear and see it, people need to be the change. And it can simply start by caring about each other, we’re all human beings. Take a listen to Truths and Rights.
“Until the day that my soul takes flight, Babylon will hear my voice,
cause we deh yah so fi truths and rights.”
I can’t decide if I like Blood Money or Truths and Rights more, comment below with the one you like more.

A month ago Blvk H3ro released this song but if you haven’t heard it, it’s still new music. There have been a lot of releases over the past weeks, so it’s finally time to share this song. H3ro released On & On for the people, the track is not for sale. Like most of Blvk H3ro’s music the rhythm is upbeat urging one to rock or even dance to it. In the song he iterates that life goes on and on, and with each day comes new opportunities. So you’re not to let the disappointments you face be the end of your dreams. Take a listen to On & On by Blvk H3ro.

Beware… Right now, Jamaica isn’t in a good state, specifically safety wise. That may be a reason this song connects so deeply with me. Melovice released his project “Di Vice” a while back which featured songs from a host of topics. I liked Carry Your Love, Gypsy Whine, and Anytime (featuring PTRK) but the one that stood out in my mind was Beware featuring Joedon. In Beware, Melovice warns us to be careful in today’s society, to consciously avoid the lurking dangers.

Can you believe school is getting to me already? It along with a bit of personal things have been taking up my time. I’m very sorry for this late post, I decided to post this song today and not hold it ’til next week because y’all need to hear this. Y’all need to know what Jeeby Lyricist has been up to. He released “Come For Me” not too long ago and I love it. His rapping on the hip hop styled instrumental is so smooth. Jeeby touches on topics that linger in the deep crevasses of the mind and soul, some of the thoughts you may find hard to share with others. This one is to your lover, to your best friend, to your soulmate. He thanks her for supporting him through his lowest moments as well as his highest. Praising her for being there as a motivator in his life, “Come for me” is all he’s asking, that when he’s down, she will be around; all while playing on the sexual innuendo. Bwoy…must be nice. Take a listen to “Come For Me” by Jeeby Lyricist featuring Courtni.

Today I have a new single from Jane Macgizmo. Her first single, Babylon, did it’s rounds and Too Late is putting up great competition. In the song she pleads for her partner’s love.

I have something special today, I’m sharing the first song from the lovely Courtni. In this song she sings about her past relationship trauma which continues to cause problems for her prospective ‘Bae’. The upbeat riddim contrasts the painful story displayed by the lyrics. A nuh just now Courtni have an amazing voice, known from the Di Vibe (band); we’ve also got a taste of her voice as she’s been featured in a few songs. This song was produced by J Beatz, take a listen to Broke My Heart.

I’m convinced good things happen on Wednesdays, that’s why I chose today to share art with you through Expression Wednesdays. If the song I’m sharing today doesn’t hype you up for your future, then it look well dark fi you. Firstly I have to big up the producers, cause the riddim neat, as well as Khari Kamau for the interesting cover art. In Destiny Leno Banton chants about putting faith in Jah Jah to ensure you reach your destiny. The one called JoeDon is featured on this track, he raps about putting up a fight for his future. This song is for the days you feel like life is fighting against your goals, take a listen to Destiny.
“Seh Jah Jah eva tek di wheel fi mi
Providing mi everything mi need
So mi can reach my destiny”
It’s Wednesday so I got some brand new tings to share with you. Ras-I released an ode to the beautiful black woman, titled “Nubian.” This song touches your soul from the instrumental intro, as he strongly says, “It’s hard to find the perfect words, to tell you how I feel…” Same! That was my exact sentiment in regards to this instrumental. I must admit as a black woman, this song truly made me feel special, appreciated even. Ras-I boasted a number of amazing traits of his black woman. Though this is about the lovely women out there, this song is one to rock along to with someone special, take a listen to Nubian.
