We are Wednesday

Jessie J on Jools

This song will feature BoB. I feel this would have been better as the first single over here in the UK.

Went INNNN!



Rihanna on a dancehall vibe

Now you know me, Monday to Sunday iRep reggae & dancehall. When I heard this a smile came upon my face. Good to see Rihanna coming back over. Pon Di Replay seems like such a long time ago. Now all she needs to do is get a feature from our artists and work with our producers.



Bonus, jacked this from ThatGrapeJuice

At approx 1:59. Oh. My. Days. These thoughts



fiX-Factor

Yeah we're back at it again. Frist Gamu-gate (autotune), then Gamu-gate (not selected), and Gamu-gate again (deportation)... But we've also had Katie-gate before (Jazz singer linked with Simon Cowell). This new one is jacked from ThatGrapeJuice, people are complaining about TreyC aka "Baby got back" eviction on Sunday. Had it gone to deadlock Katie would have been sent home, blah blah but if people liked TreyC so much, why was she in the bottom 2 again?

But as I read this article I noticed a trend between Cheryl Cole and Big Brother winner Jade Goody. Both were made on reality TV, went on to have extreme success, now that same format bringing them back down? Not completely because Cheryl still did well on the charts. Actually, naaaahhh I take it back momentarily.

Uni students fight the power

Didn't think this would actually happen on the scale it is. They're protesting in Central London against the increase of uni fees.

Violence Breaks Out On Student Protest March

Students protesting about a planned rise in university fees have smashed windows and started a fire at Millbank Tower in central London.

An estimated 30,000 students from towns and cities across the UK have travelled to the capital for the rally which was organised by the National Union of Students (NUS) and University and College Union (UCU).

Speaking from the scene, Sky News' senior correspondent Michelle Clifford said the police were not present in large numbers when the violence broke out among some of the students adjacent to the Conservative Party headquarters.




Bangs goes down South (no blowies... sadly)

You may have seen Bangs goes rap posted here before, may not. Either way, here is the new one

TI 'Whatever You Like' (damn, without the beat these lyrics are absolutely garbage aren't they?) as covered by Bangs ni(derogatory word for black people)aaaaas!



Speaking of TI

TI featuring Jazmine Sullivan 'Dying In Your Arms'

This goes hard. Jazz works the hook nicely. Yet another Reggae-tinged song. Just thought I'd point that out. If you wanna know how, the bass and piano stabs. Best song I've heard from TI in a while.

Random Tune of the Day: Joan Osborne 'One of Us'

This came on the radio today. Love this song. Concept is deep



Aggro to appear in I'm A Celeb...

Celeb is used loosely once again, no? This reality show about "celebs" in the jungle is for those looking to re-kick the careers back into gear. Aggro has just started. Sad times. For others scheduled to appear check 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 www.nolongstories.com   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
