The-Dream covers One In A Million

Yes, you read correctly

It isn't bad cover in all honesty, but come on, that's like The Game covering 2Pac's California Love or a bunch of artists from the UK doing Juicy... oh wait

The video I actually wanted to use as an example of a poor cover has been made private on YouTube. That video was Roll Deep (currently #1 on UK singles chart) rapping over Wu-Tang's classic 'C.R.E.A.M.' - utter shambles.

Anyway, back to the point of this post, it wasn't a terrible cover, wasn't exactly good either, but it is an untouchable song which then kind of gives the impression that it is a terrible cover. The-Dream isn't exactly everyone's favourite as it is. Didn't The-Dream see the Facebook group in protest against the Queen Beyonce covering this very song? What did he expect? I wonder what people would have said if Trey Songz did it...

Examples of songs that shouldn't have been touched

I went on to rate Blue, but it took me a long time to get over this the second single

Bombdiggy is ridiculously huge, but once again this second single was a tough one to get over

Blazing Squad, Balzing Squad, Blazing Squad. Unlike the others, my first impression of these little punks was this tune. They never recovered. To this day, I'd still line them up and spud each ones chin for this manslaughter. They actually thought this was good? I don't even care that it went to number 1; we all know a bunch of rubbish songs get there once in a while.

If you have anymore, feel free to holla at me:

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
