Hi Everyone!

Today we have Jah9’s newest single, “Love Has Found I”. 9 released it yesterday, in celebration of Empress Menen Asfaw’s Earthstrong (birthday). In the song, Jah9 croons about finally finding her one true love. A man embodying the likeness of H.I.M. Haile Selassie I. You get to hear a different range to her voice in this song, you can feel the soulfulness in each utterance. Just as if you got your dream man too. It brings a kind of happiness.

The photos for the accompanying visuals are by Nickii Kane with styling by Wade. While the track was produced by Clive Hunt. Take a listen to “Love Has Found I” by Jah9, and tell me what you think in the comments below.

“Love has found I… Finally….

Taking it slow but not letting go.”

My Mother’s Love

I cradle this baby in my arms.
Unknowingly conceived,
becoming my sweetest dream.

I pour in love, courage and faith.
Shut the pressure cooker tightly,
and hope, and hope, and hope.

That my work of art, comes out just right.
Though I may have doubts, you will always have my faith.
To grasp onto.

Happy World Poetry Day ♥

Spark

Sparks fly, with a kiss,
With your touch, my skin’s ablaze,
One touch, I’m in flames.

Hi Everyone 🙂

I hope all is well, I’ve just started back work, and now that vacation is over I feel to be more productive. Starting on my new year/month goals, finally.

Hi Everyone 🙂

Last week I found out about an initiative being put on by our musicians this season and I think it’s wonderful, so if you haven’t heard about it yet let me introduce to you A Crime Free Christmas. At the root of this idea is the well known guitarist, Lamont ‘Monty’ Savory; with the reason for inception being the current devastatingly high crime rates, especially towards our children. The goal for this project is that through music, they hope to influence the persons in society to be more peaceful; 12 of Jamaica’s most popular entertainers will record a song being a fusion of their style and Christmas carols. The videos will then be released each day starting from December 1st. Since the 12 days have passed, I decided to put the songs in a playlist below. Check them out!

All the artistes and the production team supported this effort free of cost, with the goal to simply bring awareness to the excessive crime and to urge the citizens to be safe, and to overall wish this merry season to be crime free. 12 Artistes, 12 songs, 1 message #CrimeFreeChristmas

Follow the project on Instagram: @TheCrimeFreeProject and on Facebook, here.

In Bloom

My heart beat rings out,
And I wonder, is love wild
As my petals dance.

Moonlit Trail

Following the moon
The light trails, feelings on high
I want the hunter.

In Motion

He was like the moon
and I, like the sun.
And with each passing glance
the curiosity grew stronger,
and with each interaction
the attraction, the pull, felt harder.
And with every new thing I learnt,
the more I wanted the night to last forever.

 

This poem was inspired by an art piece by James R Eads Illustrations that I saw, here.

Hi Everyone 🙂

For International Day of Peace or as we say in Jamaica, “Peace Day” I’m sharing a song from BLVK H3RO. The official music video premiered last week and I figured today is perfect to share it. “We All Are O.N.E.” speaks about love, peace and unity, as we all are one. The video also has some scenes at Fleet Street, that I spoke about yesterday, here, watch the video below.

On Fire

This is what happens

when a volcano becomes active.

Lava runs through my veins,

static on my skin,

a glow on my cheeks from within.

And that’s just from thoughts,

of you.

When you’re around, the slightest touch

sets me ablaze.

Every nerve ending feels like hot wire,

and you, the source of my desire.

 

Inspiration: “Skin a tingle when I ring you pon the phone” from “Flight Plans” by Protoje.
