The weeks have been moving along soooo fast, it was just Monday and now it’s almost the end of Wednesday. I hope all is well, hope you haven’t missed me too much, I have a lot of backed up articles, so look out for that!
I have something new for you, nothing nuh nice like new music, right? Today I’ll be sharing “Crazy Over You” by Ras-I featuring Runkus and Royal Blu (Faves). The instrumental for this song gives me a neo-soul feel with a touch of jazz. I love it. The lyrics follows suit with Ras-I’s voice coming in nice and sultry, caressing my heart… and eardrums. Crazy Over You describes a love story known to many people; beautiful, sturdy like a Nokia 3310, crazy love. Ras-I, Runkus, and Royal Blu take turns singing their love fable. Each having a different vibe but fitting perfectly on the track. Take a listen to Crazy Over You!
“Babe you know it’s true,
My love goes crazy over you…”

Today we have “Potential” by Jeeby Lyricist, the first single from his forthcoming EP. The track was mastered by Damitjon and produced by Shawn Smith. It has a Neo Soul feel to it, Jeeby poetically recites the lyrics over a hip-hop rhythm. He starts off with the line, “Have you ever been afraid of your potential?” and follows up urging you to chase your dreams. The verses are filled with motivation, pushing you to put your goals first, and ensure you protect yourself, mentally and emotionally.
In telling his own story, Jeeby provides his lyrics as a guide for us to do the same, and follow our dreams.

I hope you’re doing well, and not missing me too much. Today I have “Socialize” by Leno Banton featuring Kyraxx, this new track was produced by JLL. In the song Leno and kyraxx make advances at ladies of their liking, each trying to persuade her to come his way. Urging her to stop behaving antisocial. It’s a bop, it’ll have you singing along and wanting to dance. The cool song artwork was created by Paige, @PaigeZxmbie on twitter. Take a listen to “Socialize” by Lano Banton and Kyraxx.

This song isn’t new but the music video is, the single was released last year, April. Here is the official music video for “Skin Toned” by Royal Blu and Runkus. These young artistes refreshingly bring up racism, and how hard it is for black people to survive in this world.
The song was produced by JLL, and the music video was directed by Tim Foresta and Thandi Sebe, and produced by Daniel Krause.

Today we have a new single by Sevana, it is “Justice”, produced by The DrumKeys. On the track, she speaks about the blatant disregard of the effects the earth faces because of us, humans. I first got a taste of the song at Sevana’s benefit concert, A Shirt For A Show, held late year. I really liked the bridge, don’t get distracted by her beautiful voice, the message is a strong one. The lovely cover art is by Richard Nattoo (@DjSinista1). Take a listen to Justice by Sevana.

will outlive you and me.”

Today I have new reggae music for you, it is “Raggamuffin” by Koffee; the youngest new artiste on the scene. In Raggamuffin, Koffee “sing-jays” (deejays) perfectly on the beat; she keeps you paying attention, so as to not miss any flows. I’m finding it hard to even describe to you the niceness that is her flows. She introduces you to Original Koffee in this track, you get to know exactly what she’s about. Take a listen to Raggamuffin!
“It give me joy fi write rhyme pon beat.”

On this Expression Wednesdays we’re sharing new music form Kapital Stone; last week he released “Way Out”, produced by Kung-Fu Beats. His voice is unique, I like it. Stone speaks about the obvious injustice Black people face, urging us to find a ‘Way Out’. The interesting artwork was done by the amazing Richard Nattoo, @DjSinista1 on Instagram. Take a listen to “Way Out”, and let me know if you like it, in the comments below.

On this Expression Wednesdays I have the second solo single from Notis Heavyweight Rockaz, “No Bad Dayz”. This single follows “Raggy Road”, this time lifting our moods even more to say no bad dayz. No Bad Dayz is a lighthearted reggae song, the Rockaz sing about being optimistic and persevering. I liked their first single and I’m pleased with the second one as well. Take a listen to No Bad Dayz by the Notis Heavyweight Rockaz.

Give Jah the praise, no need to worry”

On this Expression Wednesdays, we have a brand new single by Yanah, “Doe Try Me”. This refreshing twist to a “bad man” song was produced by JLL. In this song Yanah guards her heart, warning her suitor with the simple words, “doe come try me”. I just love how sweet her voice is, it falls on the rhythm so nicely, if you weren’t paying attention you’d think it’s a love song. Let me explain why I said bad man song, she speaks no nonsense in the song, shooing the boy that clearly isn’t serious about the romantic pursuit. The amazing featured art is by @PaigeZxmbie on Twitter. Take a listen to “Doe Try Me” by Yanah, enjoy! And comment your thoughts below!

New music live! Right before 2017 ended Runkus released “my Gf.”. This song makes you want to move, many people claim they can’t dance but the easiest response to music is to move. When I heard my Gf. I was pleased, cause I love music that makes me want to dance. The drums! The percussion instruments in this song, they remind me of Afrobeats. This was produced by Krs.
Now, the lyrics… to be honest, I wouldn’t mind my man singing this song for me. “My gf do not come with nuh man problem…” let them know, hunny. Runkus sings about his lady, but he does so in the amazing lyrical fashion I look forward to when listening to his music. He ended 2017 with a great release, take a listen to my Gf. by Runkus.
Also check out the my Gf. photo shoot by Romario Lynch on Seen by Lynch.
