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.
“We all come from God…”

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.

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.
“No bad days, everyday’s a good day
Give Jah the praise, no need to worry”

On this Expression Wednesday, we have new music from Jah9, last week she blessed us with “Feel Good”. A reggae track enlightening us on the importance of physical health. Jah9 urges us to surrender to the high vibration of the tings weh mek yuh body feel good, no matter where. This song really is the in-depth variation of “drink water and mind your own business”; she speaks of keeping hydrated and practicing exercise, whether yoga, dancing, or otherwise, all on a smooth reggae riddim. As a yoga practitioner and teacher, and a believer of the holistic and natural ways of healing; this is what she wants to bring to the world, and what better way than through her art form.
I must commend Nickii Kane for the accompanying visuals, they are immaculate, and that yellow, it really brings an air of positivity. Take a listen to “Feel Good”, let me know what you think in the comments below.
Follow @Jah9 Twitter and @Jah9Online on Instagram, keep abreast with her movements at Jah9.com.
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.
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.
