Hi Everyone 🙂

We got a little gift with a big impact, A-Game released a song on his Birthday last Sunday. I Know you’ll enjoy it; in this sweet melody he encourages us to work towards our goals in life, despite the pressing hardships. I hope this one give you some motivation this week, it’s really catchy and what better lyrics to have stuck in your head? Take a listen to “I Know.”

Find A-Game on Instagram @AlexxAGame.

Upcoming Events!

Christmas holiday has officially began for some (like me 😀 ) while others are still confined by ongoing exams. I actually quite enjoy this season, the food, the good vibes and cheerfulness, the family time, but I love going out with my friends as well. Take a look at a couple events happening this week.

Hi Everyone 🙂

Since this is the week following Hero’s Day, I decided to show you a part of Jamaica’s culture; a music genre born here, Dancehall. The song for today is “Needle Eye” by Spice, this is a Gyal Chune, which simply means it’s a song (tune) made for the ladies to show off their dancing skills. Take a listen but beware, it’s explicit.

It’s one of my favourites 😀

I have bad news everyone; with Jamaicans across the island pondering whether to roast or fry breadfruit, I fear we will soon come to an end, as a nation. The sun is so hot, persons are melting at a rapid pace, everyday. With hot heads roaming the streets and the high levels of hype gas, one day the sun and the gas will cause the island to combust. And we’re not even in June…Will Jamaicans make it to summer?

For real though, it’s been so hot lately, fans on high, A/C’s on low, using umbrellas during the day to shield your face from burning. The sun has been feeling too real. I have decided to keep any outdoor activities before 6pm at a minimum. Have you started feeling any summer vibes?

Today I want to big up Dancehall! Listen these two dancing songs below:

Hey Everyone 🙂

Today I’m sharing a little information about Rihanna’s song “Work” it’s from her new album “ANTI” the song features Drake. To be honest the song annoys me, not because of the Patois used but because of the choice of lyrics, and at some parts it actually sounds like gibberish to me, don’t get me wrong, this is still a nice song to dance/whine(twerk) to. “Work” is not Tropical House, this video expounds on such thoughts, and I agree completely.

I must admit, I like the music video though, it looks like you were dropped inna one Jamaican dance. For those who have not heard the song, the official music video was released on Monday, take a look↓

Don’t forget to comment!

It’s an Island vibe today, I say today like that isn’t always my vibe lol. So hi everybody, how you been? What’s your vibe today? Let me know in the comments below!

Please enjoy this music video, Samantha J’s “Bad Like Yuh” it was shot in her home town of Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

I like the song, it has a nice riddim, the core of the lyrics says “I know I shouldn’t but I gotta have you” it can vibe to 🙂 The music video is especially nice, now I wanna go roller skating though!

P.S. Pree them with the patties at the end, patties give life! (See last week’s Expression Wednesday.)

Hello Everyone 🙂

I have something out of the ordinary for you, today I have a dancehall song,”Pressure” by Vybz Kartel, I was just listening to it the other day and I find it cool and funny plus the riddim is nice to bounce to. He basically talks about trying to get out of Ghetto life, to me it’s cool for the way he puts his flow but it’s funny cause he also says types of food that’s cooked in a Pressure Cooker. Take a listen.

Caribbean Party

I listen to any genre of music, hip hop, pop, rap, rock, alternative, country, RnB, gospel, dub step, soca, as long as I like the song.

My fave genre of music is reggae, which is a part of Jamaica’s culture but I have to admit I do listen to dancehall, though some people don’t like the rawness of it, it’s also a part of the Jamaican culture and I was grown on it, I do dance to it as well.

Dancehall has 3 main types of songs, there are dancing chunes (tunes) which are songs that tell you what dance moves to do, for example Everybody Dance by RDX or Tek Weh Yuself by Mr. Vegas; there are bad man chunes which are Continue reading “Caribbean Party”
