Estelle is a Freak?

Rapper-turned-singer (just kiddin)... Artist Estelle returns to our ears with her new single Freak, features Candian rapper (with dancehall flavour) Kardinal Offishall, produced by hit-maker David Guetta (I Got A Feelin by Black Eyed Peas gets wheels on decks).

Well, whether or not I find her attractive, she isn't a universally recognised sex symbol. I feel this will make it slightly harder for her to sell this song. Beat/bass dominates the track too much for me, so to me, it doesn't sound like her song; more a dance/producer compilation CD. Will knock in clubs.

I said whether or not I find her attractive, but I can catergorically state I most definitely wood! I don't segregate or discriminate/ get into that whole light-skin, dark-skin debate; it's all made of the same stuff... skin stuff innit! So if you think she's too dark gelloutahere! She wasn't much a looker in Trixta with Blak Twang, nor 1980, but that could have been down to the whole rapping thing.

Let's be honest, if a female depends on a swing vote, unless she is an undoubted stunner like Lil Kim (early days), Foxy Brown (Broken Silence times), Eve after the peppergrains grew out (Who's That Girl times), Trina or most recently Nicki Minaj (anytime!), femcees don't get that love. Shystie and Baby Blue are aaaalright, but it's debatable. Get my point?

Post 'American Boy' times I've been a fan. Her sister H-Boogie is sexy bad! Estelle/H-Boogie, if you read this holla at me. The beat knocks + knockers = anticipating the vid. All the best with the success of this tune. I like Estelle as a person (don't know her, I rate her grind, struggle and honesty).

Hold tight UK rapper Sway commenting on my blogpost about him Sway's new song... do we care?, then holla'in on Twitter: @Sway_Dcypha: @MarvinSparks read your Sway... Do we still care write up... Interesting...


  1. I really like this Estelle Joint. It has my vote.
    And I love the beat. It's Serious. Defo one tune that will be in the clubs and be rinsed out like American Boy was.

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   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
