Shaggy and Hotly-Tipped New Rapper Bizerk Team Up with Producer Don Corleon on Celebratory New Single “Like To Party”

OK, it’s the middle of winter, but let’s pretend it’s July, it’s Friday, the sun is out and work is over – kick off your shoes and get ready for “Like To Party,” the celebratory new single from Reggae legend Shaggy and hotly tipped newcomer Bizerk (an Inner Circle/Circle House artist), produced by Don Corleon and slated for February 26 worldwide release from Don Corleon Records.

The beloved Shaggy has put out nearly two decades of Reggae hits, including the crossover mega-classics “It Wasn’t Me,” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and “Boombastic,” from his Grammy-winning album of the same name. Miami-based newcomer Bizerk has already featured on tracks with Slightly Stoopid and others, and takes a grab at the big-time on the anthemic “Like To Party.”

Production on the track is handled by the estimable Donovan “Don Corleon” Bennett, the architect of songs for Sean Paul, Rihanna, Keisha Kole, Vybz Kartel, Protoje, Jah Cure, Pressure and many other leading Reggae artists.

The tag-team approach results in a head-nodding, sun-soaked single with a fresh yet classic feel – if you need some summer in the winter, “Like To Party” by Bizerk featuring Shaggy will be available worldwide February 26 from Don Corleon Records.

Vybz Kartel blasts police in new letter from jail

Vybz KartelHaving been incarcerated for nearly 17 months on murder and conspiracy charges, Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer has unleashed his fury on Jamaican police forces in a new letter from prison, alleging they have done everything imaginable to keep him behind bars.

The five-page handwritten letter, publicized via Kartel’s official Twitter page on Wednesday, outlines accusations by the embattled deejay that police have concocted lies, threats and evidence in order to smear his reputation prevent him from achieving bail.

Titled, This is Adidja Palmer stating the facts, the controversial entertainer holds nothing back.

“In 2011, I was charged for murder by way of a statement which indicated that I had ordered Lenburgh McDonald to murder Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton. Weeks later, said witness gave a statement to the Public Defender saying that he was physically assaulted and threatened by the police to say that I was involved in ‘Bossie’ Burton’s death. Days later, he gave another statement to the Public Defender saying that since he recanted the first statement, he has been getting death threats via calls to his phone.”

“Days after my first murder charge, I was charged with another murder (Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams). In this case, the police (by way of a Senior Superintendent who was later charged with “attempting to pervert the course of justice” in a separate incident) campaigned every Monday morning on a certain TV station claiming they had DNA evidence, which came back 7 months later as negative. They also led the public to believe that they had video tape of me and my co-accused murdering Williams. I would like to add that the police made a lot of damaging remarks against me. A most notable one would be “since his arrest, the community is a safer place.”

German electronics company, Saturn says sorry to Jamaicans for controversial ad

Saturn adSaturn Electronics Inc., the brainchild behind a controversial advertisement involving the burning of a Jamaican flag, has pulled its commercial in the wake of continued backlash from Jamaicans.

The German electronics company made the decision following a meeting with Germany’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs in an attempt to quell the heat received for their commercial. A statement issued by Saturn on Tuesday explained that their decision to pull it from their online channels was ‘out of respect for the feelings of the Jamaican people,’ and will not air the ad on German television as planned.

The letter, addressed to Jamaica’s Ambassador to Germany, Joy Wheeler said, in part, “We must nevertheless take note of the fact that the humorous approach we selected has led to some misunderstandings in Jamaica and among Jamaicans living in Germany. We sincerely regret this and would like to apologize if we have angered or offended anyone with our ad.”

Additionally, they insisted they, “at no time was it the company’s intention to offend the national sentiment of the Jamaican people,” and that it was meant ‘tongue-in-cheek.’

The Government of Jamaica later issued a response, saying they accepted Saturn’s apology and are pleased that the ad will not air on TV.

Saturn caught the ire Jamaicans worldwide after an ad which debuted last week in which two young, white men accidentally set the flag on fire after a coffee maker went faulty. One of the men then went outside with the flag, stomping all over it until the blaze went out; sparking a number of enraged civilians to hold Jamaican flags protesting its desecration.

The video, which has been viewed over 700,000 times on various YouTube channels, received several more dislikes than likes as Jamaicans demanded an apology from Saturn, saying it was disrespectful to burn the flag. Other Jamaicans, however, lauded the commercial’s concept, saying it was another win for Brand Jamaica on the heels of the popular Volkswagen ad, which officially premiered during this year’s Superbowl.

New petition urges fair trial for Kartel

3165f54a302a128e148cdf239292ed99Nearly 17 months into his incarceration, well-renowned Dancehall singer, Vybz Kartel is receiving a push on his behalf for a fair trial as fans are circulating a petition to secure the deejay’s release from prison.

Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer has bounced between lock-ups in Kingston and Spanish Town since his September 2011 arrest as he is awaiting his day in court on murder and conspiracy charges. Despite securing bail in two of his three court cases, Kartel remains in prison as he has yet to be offered bail in the Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams murder case. As a result, the self-professed ‘Worl Boss’ will languish in the Horizon Remand Centre until May 27 when the matter will once again be mentioned.

However, Michael Dawson, the co-author of Kartel’s book, Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto has started a petition asking that Kartel be allowed temporary freedom and the chance to earn a decent living until his trial begins.

Ragashanti leave Link Up Radio following dispute with manager

RagashantiControversial Jamaican talk show host,Kingsley ‘Ragashanti’ Stewart is off the airwaves again following a nasty row with the manager of his latest radio program.

Last year, Ragashanti moved to Link Up Radio 93.5 FM shortly after announcing the suspension his Tambareen Radio outlet for revamping. However, his stint with New York-based radio station was short-lived after a fallout with David ‘Squeeze’ Annakie, Link Up’s head man earlier this month after accusing him of trying to exploit his image in an unsavoury light.

Ragashanti explained his situation in a detailed statement on his personalized website, Ragashanti.com.

“After numerous attempts to control and exploit me to make money, I made it known at all times that I am primarily a broadcaster and that I do not want my image or likeness to be exploited in ways I don’t see fit. I also made it known that I don’t need anyone to ‘manage’ or to channel me in arenas I consider unethical,” he said.

“I also did not want to be so obsessively focused on money that I would be callously exploiting my fellow Jamaicans and other Caribbean nationals. This wasn’t received well by those who told me I could be the ‘biggest moneymaking machine’ for their company. This then led to multiple and unending manipulations for me to change my mind. They were unsuccessful. Then the pettiness increased in a manner aimed at trying to ‘draw me out’ to do something rash so that they could sue me and demolish me. Again, they were not successful. It was under this climate that I thought it best to resign.”

The esteemed media personality also chastised Mr. Annakie for trying to copyright his name, meaning, saying his ex-manager would have received all profits associated with the Ragashantibrand and any events or shows associated with said brand.

A screenshot of a post by Mr. Annakie on his Facebook page added more fuel to the fire asRagashanti claims he admitted to trying to copyright the name in a comment to a fan of the show.

“Yes, it is standard to protect all brands associated with a company to avoid legal issues. It is of no significance anymore because the relationship has ended and he has been released,” said the post.

Ragashanti is no stranger to change. In September 2010, he resigned from News Talk 93 FMafter a number of years on the network, hosting his popular Ragashanti Live program. Following a move to Nationwide Radio later that month, he was on the move again in March 2011 after theBroadcasting Commission ordered him off air, citing several violations. Ragashanti had long been questioned for the sexual nature of his program, which aired weekdays in the early afternoons during his short stint at the radio station.

He then started Tambareen Radio, which featured a variety of shows, including the popular late night program, Outa Orda.

Controversial Saturn ad causes uproar amongst Jamaicans

Saturn Jamaica adWeeks after Jamaica was on a high following the release of a hotly-debated Volkswagencommercial, a different advertisement by a German entity has fired up Jamaica, literally and figuratively.

Saturn Electronics posted an advertisement on Wednesday which featured the Jamaican flag as well as the background vocals of Murderer, the classic song by Reggae/Dancehall legend, Barrington Levy. At first, two young white men making coffee while listening to music, they accidentally trigger a fire which catches the flag.

In an attempt to stop the fire from spreading throughout the store, one of the men take the burning flag outside and stamp all over it. These actions are captured on a news satellite, feeding pictures of a demonstration sparked near the store in which protesters hold up Jamaican flags while shouting ‘We Love Jamaica.’ In the end, a Jamaican flag is hurled down a high-rise building while the two young men appear stunned by the commotion which surrounds them.

A description under Saturn’s video says, “The new Saturn commercial shows a striking coffee is the trigger for a chain of chaotic circumstances.”

“Director, Martin Werner provides with its action-packed short film of just a little more than a minute, excitingentertainment and shows the crucial role to play proper technique and it offers cinematic scenes and moves simultaneously in a humorous way the technology competence Saturn into focus.”

Buju trial takes shape as jurors give contrasting statements in misconduct case

Buju BantonEmbattled Reggae singer, Mark Myrie aka Buju Banton may be gaining some traction in his juror misconduct case as one of the jurors in his February 2011 drug trial said the alleged violation involving foreman, Terri Wright was discussed in the jury room.

However, there remain more questions than answers after the juror misconduct trial resumed on Monday as some of the eight jurors subpoenaed to the US Sam Gibbons Court in Tampa, FL gave contrasting evidence as to whether or not Wright committed the alleged act. One of the jurors reportedly claimed he knew nothing about the supposed misconduct.

Wright appeared at Monday’s hearing with her computer hard drive, as ordered by presiding judge, James Moody, where a computer specialist would examine it to determine if any evidence of this misconduct existed.

New Artist Video: Ruth-Ann Brown – ‘Any Day Now’

For multi-award winning singer/songwriter, Ruth-Ann Brown (Ruth), making Reggae music was hardly a choice; it was something she could not run from. Their union has been as fluent as the successshe has experienced to-date. Since the release of her five-song EPentitled RUTH, Ruth-Ann Brown has received two awards, been featured on Fox Network, interviewed by several radio stations across the world and featured in and on the cover of several print media. Ruth has per- formed in and around Washington DC, sharing the stage with Reggae icons such as Freddie McGregor, Beres Hammond, I-Wayne and Ky- Mani Marley, just to name a few. Her performance at The Mansion at Strathmore in Maryland was historic. She was the first Reggae artiste to be invited to the prestigious venue. Ruth-Ann Brown has also sung the American National Anthem at a basketball game in Virginia – an experience she describes as “an honor”. Ruthwas born in the mid 80′s in Jamaica, where she was surrounded by the influences of dancehall veterans such as King Yellowman, Josie Wales and Jacob Miller.

Instead of going to sleep, as soon as my mother put me to bed as a young child, I would listen to the sound system playing across the street from my house until I fell asleep. Reggae was like a drug. I couldn’t get enough,” Ruth recalls. As an adolescent, she enjoyed singing in the church choir and writing poems to express her pent-up emotions. By the time she became a young adult, she began experimenting with writing songs to instru- mentals. In late 2005 Ruth-Ann Brown’s first song, ‘As It Is’, was re- leased on the Di-Mon Cut label. This marked her entry into the music business. From then, she has honed her art. In relation to her craft, Ruth states, “I can’t imagine music without emotions. When I make music, I want people to feel it as much as I do, so I try to connect with my emotions and release them into my work. When I touch the lives of others, only then will I be successful as an artiste.” Renowned music critic and writer, Stan Smith, describes Ruth’s music as being, full of “thought-provoking lyrics, which are emotionally enraptured and sometimes easy going [and they] make her songs easy to digest”.

Her music has also been described as soul-touching, passion- ate, intense, yet smooth, relaxing, tropical and warm. Roxroy Mclean, says of Ruth-Ann Brown in the Jamaican Sunday Gleaner, “What’s intriguing is that she approaches each topic with the same passion and zeal, which makes her stand out … ” Ruthcredits Dennis Brown, The Cranberries and Sade as her greatest musical influences. In 2007 Ruth-Ann Brown was introduced to Rhoan Bromfield, owner and CEO of Bran-Nu Entertainment (BNE) and from then a strong union was formed. “I have found something most artistes only dream of,” Ruthexplained with a smile, “Working with a label that gives me my creative freedom and gives me much needed guidance in a cut- throat industry is a fairy tale. Without them, I would be a headless chicken. Furthermore, they believe what I believe where making rich, cultural Reggae music is concerned – it is live music and we will not take the digital route.” BNE has been a strong driving force in exposing Reggae music to un- conventional markets, secure licensing deals for Ruthwith several air- lines including Air France, a Kenyan airline and an Austrian airline. Presently, Ruth and BNE are strategically building a catalogue of songs for her much-anticipated debut album.

The first release was a five-song EP, entitled RUTH, which is available on iTunes and Amazon. It consists of a smooth, yet intense flute-driven single, “Unfa- miliar Feelings”, which has received tremendous airplay worldwide. The accompanying music video sat at the top position on several music charts in Jamaica. There are also more traditional drum and bass driven singles such as “Chillin’ with My Baby” and “I LoveYou”, as well as the acoustic numbers “Here Come the Critics” and “Jam- down”. In a review of Ruth-Ann Brown’s EP, entertainment writer, Joseph Tortelli says, “Ruth-Ann Brown’s five-song EPexpands and en- riches preconceived notions about reggae artistes. The Jamaican singer- songwriter blends pop, soul, and acoustic stylings into her reggae- rooted compositions … Digging deeply into Reggae’s emo- tional power, these tracks unveil an expressive singer-songwriter with distinctive blue-beat pipes.” In May 2012, Ruth’s EPearned her two awards at the 15th Annual Washington DC Reggae Music Awards for Best Reggae Recording and Best Female Reggae Recording. Ruth also performed on the re- nowned FOX Network where she sang “Any Day Now” and “Unfa- miliar Feelings” to aprox one million viewers. Ruth-Ann Brown and BNE are convinced that she has a very bright future ahead. “With the help of BNE and with Ric Zheron as my greatest support, I am look- ing forward to a long-lasting, meaningful career,” says Ruth.

Duane Stephenson Featured On Don Corleonie’s Scriptures Riddim

With the highly anticipated Scriptures Riddim by Multi-Platinum producer Donovan “Don Corleonie” Bennett already getting raves reviews after an exclusive mix by Irie Fm radio jock DJ Wayne was released earlier this week, reggae singer Duane Stephenson who’s song “Things Get Hard” is featured on the project offers up another dose of social commentary to his fans.

“Things Get Hard” which is one of two singles Stephenson recorded for Corleonie highlights amongst other things the oppression faced by many Jamaicans on a daily basis.

Other big name reggae artists such as Jah Cure, Morgan Heritage, JahVinchi, TOK and Chronixx also made the Scriptures compilation.

In other news Stephenson who premiered his “Fire In Me” music video last month will be releasing another in a few weeks, this time for the song “Another Day In Kingston Town” produced by Dameon Gayle of Warrior Musick Production.

Dancehall artistes concerned about increase of gay prostitution, want it stopped

485447318_edb02ab8c1The topic of homosexuality in Jamaica has long been a hot and divisive one amongst Jamaicans; particularly artistes, who have continuously affirmed strong stances against it. Another issue amongst gays has raised eyebrows in the local music industry once more.

Though that particular part of Kingston is notorious for prostitution, the growing number of male prostitutes has raised qualms amongst citizens and the Dancehall community.

One such member of that community is ex-Portmore Empire singer and Vybz Kartel protege, Gaza Slim, who insists these gay prostitutes should be moved off the streets immediately.
