MTV Wrap Up: Wayne Marhsall interview part again

You read the title correctly, part again. We don't test two what about you?

Anyway, may have read the first part. May not have read the first part, I don't know. You may not even read this part, but I'm posting it anyway. (First part)

Part 1, we spoke about how he managed to get Estelle on the remix for his single, why he chose the controversial Island pop sound for his single and his idol Bounty Killer. Pretty much a formal interview.

In part again, I go a bit more dancehall. I did ask about his appearance with Sean Kingston & Nicki Minaj 'Dutty Love' + whether him and Drake are going to collaborate. Oh and about Toddla T's single 'Sky Surfing'. But yeah, more dancehall-oriented; Wayne Marshall and I spoke about his beef with former friend and collaborator Vybz Kartel, both why he never responded to blatant disses and whether they'll work together in the future now that they've made up.

If you didn't know, Wayne Marshall was the big singjay in the scene before Mavado came along. That isn't me saying Mavado stole his thunder so don't try it, I'm just putting his career into something you can understand if you don't know. Anyway, from 2005-2008 he went quiet so I asked about that, as well as his marriage to former Akon protege Tami Chynn. Remember the stunner Akon brought to 1Xtra Live? Yeah her. And ended on whether dancehall has changed for better or worse in the time since he burst onto the scene in '01

I much prefer this half of it. In my head, part 1 was more commercial-friendly.

Anyway, check it out here:

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
