Means it's Monday

Wiley 'Party Pooper'

What happens when you listen to too much Drake and Lil' Wayne? I dunno exactly but I'd guess something like this

Tune bangs! Beat is a proper jam. If I were A&R of an r&b singer I'd get to hook up with this producer. Wiley should have sold this to an r&b singer. You should have fam. This is a proper jam

R. Kelly > your granny's tea and toast on a winters evening

Kells brought one of the best performances I've seen at an awards show in a minute. Channeled his inner Sam Cooke (not on levels with but you get my motion? No? Aight den...) on the Soul Train Awards. I've watched it through three times so far. Vocals, stage presence, songs, lyrics, dancers, co-operation from the band etc. Trey Songz who? Bruno Mars who? NeYo who? None of them can talk to Robert Kelly. #RandomThought he should use his full name to match with the mature route, dontcha think?

Thank you for finally growing up. I blogged his tune Love Letter the other day. Check it out

Nicki Minaj 'Save Me'

So I listened to one of the most anticipated hip hop albums today. Found out it isn't hip hop. More pop/r&b with hip hop sprinkles. She really didn't carry the torch of Lil Kim, Foxy and Trina, more an Eve vibe about her. Less sexy more substance. Saying that both Fox and Kim had substance but at the same time they were raw.

This tune right here will make Nicki a lorra (as Cilla Black would say) money. As you'll hear she doesn't rap at all. Her singing voice isn't bad. She isn't a singer but it isn't bad.

Check out her docu by MTV here

Keri Hilson gets sexy

All the mandem are going crazy over this video.

Yeah she's pretty, isn't wearing much clothes but she isn't that great. Where is her bum? Uman fi have shape! She's tryna channel that Ciara vibe but Ciara is far superior

Case. In. Point

Yeah, I'm straight up comparing. If you asked me "Who would you most like to spend the night with out of Ciara and Keri Hilson" I'd reply "and" then ask for a menage. If pushed, I'd have to go with Cee Cee. Her sexy swag comes across realer to me. Keri's a pretty tomboy forcing it.

Know why I say this?

Marvin Sparks: You class yourself as a tomboy and enjoy playing sports like basketball, but appeared as the lead girl in Usher's 'Love In This Club' video and are the object of many males desire. How do you find being labelled as a sex symbol?
Keri Hilson:
Hmm, I don’t think of myself as that, but I am getting a lot of attention from men so maybe I’m on the... you know... I don’t know [nervous giggle]. I don’t really see it like that, I’m just being myself. I still feel very much like a tomboy with make up on my face and heels on my feet. I’m just me, yeah.

Throwback Tune of the Day: Changing Faces 'G.H.E.T.T.O.U.T'

For those old enough to remember r&b from 94 onwards, if you didn't know this tune was EVERY (minus a few) girls tune you missed out on a good period of music. These times r&b was a lot. Nuff girl and boy groups, leftover new jack swing - hip hop/soul period.

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 .

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
