Vybz Kartel "Clarks mi prefer"

Despite falling out with some/most/damn near all of the main players in the reggae/dancehall industry through either disrespectful lyrics on songs, explicit pictures, accusations of ordering beatdowns on former members of the Gaza camp/Portmore Empire, deejay of the year in both 08 and 09 has released a banger for the summer.

Who said traditional dancehall was dead?! Once again, dancehall is starting to kick again this time of the year. Nuff riddims released from earlier this year seem to be picking up heat as well as new riddims dropping. Maybe it's down to sun in sky for me.

Even former B2K front man Omarion tweeted "Waan gwaan popcaan!! "CLARKES" VYZB KaRtel!" (click here for the proof) We'll excuse the minor typo, it isn't that big a deal.

My bredrin in Jamaica told me you can't find Clarks to buy in stores in Jamaica. Kartel, tell Clarks "cut di cheque!"

Clarks will be dropped next to Nuh Linga, Click Mi Finger and/or Sweep throughout the year. The talk will be "If you got Clarks on, show them off" or words to that effect then Nuh Linga, followed by Sweep if the DJ & mic man have sense

Russian produced the remix Clarks Again

Despite the more "international" sound, this isn't the one getting the most play of the 2. Guess it goes to show what the public prefer to hear from dancehall...


  1. Yup the Clarks tune is hot but feel like it'll be a lil while til it picks up over here. Maybe summer for people outside of the proper dancehall circles.

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
