FAO: Single Gal Dem on Valentines

Today's Valentines. I know you're feeling a little lonely so I thought I'd dedicate a little post to all of you.

Check the "Single Girl Selection"

Read in a dancehall soundman voice for full effect. If you don't know what that is, read normally. But you won't get the full effect. Obviously.

All of the girls that know you don't need a man, walk out on this one (walk out = make yourself known, so girls walk back-and-forth with pride in dancehall parties)

Destiny's Child 'Independent Ladies'

If you know you won't settle for less than the best give me some signal (noise, hands in the air, phone light etc.)

TLC 'No Scrubs'

Do something to this one. Not sure what so I'll leave the floor open for you. Sing along crew?

P!nk 'Most Girls'

From you know you do it better than your ex, do a dainty whine

Tweet 'Oops (Oh My)'

If you're single, you may relate to this (unless you're single 'cos you're butters... inside obviously):

Amber aka PhreshMENtality (just noticed the subliminal in the name still) 'Single'

And if you are feeling down about yourself, turn this one up loud

TLC 'Unpretty'

If you do have a man

Buss a blank for your true friend on this one

702 'Where My Girls At?'

And from you know you never had to play hide and seek 'cos you send it out like direct debit on pay day, walk out (if you get it, you get it. And yes, I have lyrics to intro a tune pon sound)

Gaza Slim 'One Man'

As for me?

"Over me, out a road nuff gal a mad over me..."

#FreeBujuBanton 'Too Bad'


"You don't see it's me every girl goes mad over"

Mavado 'Gal A Mad Ova'

But tweet me some compliments 'cos... erm... compliments never go a miss. I'll fill you stocking for you #NoXmas / #MoreLikeXXXmas / "mas" = more in Spanish, right?

Lastly, a song for the lovers out there

Jah Cure 'You'll Never Find'

And mandem after the meal and desert draw for your rubbers (no eraser) and listen to this. Gotta break even, son

Wayne Marshall 'Good Love'

p.s. those two in the video Wayne Marshall and singer Tami Chynn are married. With that knowledge you'll probably enjoy the video even more. I think the little boy is Marshall's son

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
