Hi Everyone 🙂 I hope by now you all are feeling the Christmas spirit. I definitely am, as a matter of fact tomorrow is my birthday so I’m feeling that vibe as well (turn up!) 😀 Today I’m sharing with you a song I first 

The New Wave

The debut. I got to the Stones Throw Bar at 9:30, when (Dj) The Stamma was running the Dj stand. He was relieved by Dj Jimmy Q at 10pm. Patrick and I conversed, enjoying the ambiance Stones Throw had to offer. It had aTiki Hut 

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.

New music alert!!!! June has been such a great month, Protoje released his album, Royalty Free, which I spoke about last week. This week I bring to you Kabaka Pyramid’s mixtape by Major Lazer, Accurate; and Xana Romeo’s mixtape by Yaadcore, Mercy Please. Take your time,

As Protoje said, “Royalty is free” and as such we were gifted with an album titled, Royalty Free. He blessed us with new music on his Birthday, Tuesday June 14, 2016. This was highly anticipated since he told us the good news the previous Friday, following the drop of two new songs that week. “Can’t Feel No Way” and “Glad You’re Home” were blazing their way through the hearts of many; “Can’t Feel No Way” was also added to Fyah 105 FM’s rotation (a Jamaican Radio Station).

Protoje expressed that he has always wanted to make and release a free album, so that music lovers could share it among each other, easily and legally. Royalty Free is available for download on Protoje.com or to stream on Soundcloud, with just 5 songs and labeled as “Side B” here is the track list.

You guys know I have to tell you my thoughts on the album 🙂 I love the whole project, it’s an album that no song can be skipped, so far. My favourite song off the album is “Used To Be My Life” (it jus sweet mi) it just pulls at my heart strings, the guitar, the smoothness of the riddim, the lyrics that give you a look at Oje, not Protoje. I can’t even tell you what exactly it is but I have this song on repeat. “Can’t Feel No Way” is my next fave, as well as “Flight Plan,” I can appreciate the lyrics in “Sandra Foster” but it just doesn’t pull me. I rate the lyrics in “Glad You’re Home” as well but it’s not at the top of my list. Overall it’s a good album and it looks like it’s gonna be a hit for the summer.
