Whitney Houston x Oprah

Nothing to say other than it's everything you wanted to hear in what Oprah states as "One of the most powerful interviews" she has done. You'd be a fool to disgaree.

First part

  • What attracted the church-going, sweetheart dubbed "The voice" to "bad news" Bobby Brown
  • In-depth look into their tumultuous, and sometimes abusive relationship
  • Addiction to sex, coke and weed
  • Breakdown of her marriage
  • Rehab


Second part

  • The day she finally walked out
  • Effect the relationship had on their teenage daughter Bobby Kristina
  • Michael Jackson's passing
  • Inspiration behind songs lifted from new album 'I Look to You'
  • Whether she's drug-free


Whitney has a mean swagger in front of the audience. I remember fancying Whitney along with the likes of Beyoncé, Chilli (TLC) and Monica circa 'My Love is Your Love', not ashamed to say. After seeing pics of her looking rather crack-ish for obvious reasons (no disrespect of course), she looks rejuvenated and radiant like she's thrownback to them times.

Back to the interview, tell me that wasn't gripping. Go on I dare ya! Oprah is the bawse.

Moral of the story: You can be blessed with talent and beauty, all the money, praise and adulation you could wish for yet still not be happy/content. This proves celebrities are real people. More shallow and insecure than you and I in a lot of cases. To think, that's what many aspiring artists hope to be. Do what you want to do for yourself; external factors don't usually help internally (no Rev Run).

So, Jamaican Music Is Currently Dominating UK Pop Chart

Based on official UK top 100 singles chart week commencing 15th April 1. Drake featuring Wizkid & Kyla Don't listen to the afrobeats or UK funky claims, Drake made a dancehall song with elements of the aforementioned. But I addressed that in the ' Mis-Appreciation of Jamaican Culture ' post. 2. Sia feat. Sean Paul - Cheap Thrills Sidenote: Song declined by Rihanna 5. Zara Larrson - Lush Life Sidenote: Allegedly a song declined by Rihanna. Not sure how true that is. 10. Rihanna feating Drake - Work (peak chart position 2) 13. Major Lazer feat. Nyla & Fuse ODG- Light It Up (peak chart position 7) Sidenote: Nyla is part of Brick & Lace fame. They dropped one of the best written dancehall pop crossover songs ever in Love is Wicked . I believe she's the singer although she singjay's on this. 26. Justin Bieber - Sorry (peak chart position 1) 39. AlunaGeorge feat. Popcaan - I'm In Control 43. Kygo - Stay (peak chart

About Chronixx Somerset House show: this is NOT a review

So basically, I went to Chronixx's show at the prestigious Somerset House on Sunday. Had the time of my life again. Decided I'm not gonna write a review on Monday because what else is there to say? I've seen him five times (six if you include the time babylon locked off proceedings cos of curfew in Jamaica. Seven if you include his appearance at Rebel Salute) and been impressed every time. How do I keep retelling the same story? "You have to see this guy. It is one of the best shows you will experience in these times," will forever be the moral. If you wanna read a review of this show  go here . You can take in my reviews of Chronixx in 2014 and 2013 . If you wanna do that and wanna hear what I've got to say, stay here.

Remember When Riddims Were King

Before you read, thank you for your interest and hope you enjoy. I actually fleshed it out into a book. You can get your copy from www.nolongstories.com   Now for what you came here for... When Riddims Were King 23rd May 2020 will be remembered in history for one of the most epic events in one of our universe's darkest times. We will never forget the night dancehall kings and former extremely heated rivals, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer, battled on the Verzuz platform built by hall-of-fame producers, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. An unfiltered, 360-degree view on Jamaican dancehall events was showcased; DJ’s and dancing (Beenie Man’s daughter Desha Ravers) to deejay’s clashing on the same riddims. The latter elements provided the jewels in the night’s highlight reel, and undoubtedly the best thing to happen on the Verzuz series. Word spread like guava jelly within the dancehall community and Jamaican diaspora upon announcement. Not only was it a clash between the longest and fier
