Alty B (left) is accusing popular Dancehall group, RDX (right) of pirating his hit single, ‘Island Girl’

After staying silent during the first go-around, fast-rising Dancehall star and Real Entertainment Productionsrecording artist, Alty B is now crying foul after making strong claims that popular Dancehall group, RDX has pirated his breakthrough single, Island Girl.

The hit song, featuring fellow singjay Richie Loop was released earlier this year, to mass success, garneringAlty B unprecedented attention with hundreds of thousands of views across several music websites. The song also saw the emerging entertainer splashed across several Jamaican and Caribbean music stations as well as charts worldwide as the official video for Island Girlmade him a must-watch star in the making.

However, the singjay now claims RDX stole his concept and flow for their own single dubbed Island Girl, which was recently released on the JA Productions producedOverdrive Riddim.

This isn’t the first time RDX has blatantly copied one of his songs, according to Alty B. The No More singer insists the veteran group pulled off a similar tactic two years ago following the release of his dance-themed hit,Splice.

“I saw it has an opportunity for my song [Splice] to get out there publicly but that was not the outcome,” he recalled. “Instead RDX gain fame while my song eventually died out.”

Andrew Lee Pryce, founder of Real Entertainment Productions and Alty B’s manager relayed his shock upon hearing of RDX’s single and believes it validates accusations by other acts that the group has stolen their ideas also.

“I often heard entertainers saying that RDX go around stealing people songs but I’ve finally heard it first hand and I’m not gonna take this lightly,” he explained.

The Pryce-led Real Entertainment Productions has signaled their intent to seek legal discourse should they fail to get a response from RDX’s management team to resolve this ongoing issue.

Meanwhile, Alty B is looking to build on the success of Island Girl as he is working on a soon-to-be released single, Nobody and will be touring parts of the Caribbean, including Trinidad and Tobago later this year.

Additionally, the Toronto-based singjay is working on a major collaboration with a Canadian-born international superstar in the coming weeks, which is sure to land him the multitalented entertainer his biggest break to date.

Alty-B scorches Dancehall scene with trio of summer singles

Emerging Dancehall star, Alty-B has launched several musical salvos as he aims to vigorously assert himself on the Dancehall scene this summer with three newly-released singles.

The highly rated, Toronto-based Jamaican singjay recently teamed up with Smoke Shop Productions on a trio of songs that surely will leave a strong a positive impact on the Dancehall scene. Featuring on three pulsating summer Riddims created by Smoke Shop, Alty-B used this collaboration as an opportunity to spread his wings lyrically with various concepts and ideas which feed these songs with the required substance necessary to launch his credibility to new heights.

Firstly amongst this string of singles is No More, an effort in which Alty-B defers from the typical, playboy lifestyle of an artiste and declares himself a one-woman man. In No More, Alty-B offers a convincing delivery on Smoke Shop’s Sour Sap Riddim, contrasting the beat’s name as he portrays himself as a sweetheart for his main lady who he doesn’t want to let go after admittedly hurting her in the past.

Alty-B sings, “Never ever felt a pain like this, till mi girl seh she doe wan no more of this, no more hug, no more kiss, cyaah believe seh it come down to dis. Who seh big man nuh cry, dem a fool, tears weh mi cry fi yuh cudda full a pool, mi use fi be the top gallis; so smooth but right yah now mi feel like a fool.” 

The Drewsland native turns it up a notch for the ladies once more with Love Ah Come Dung on the Summer Hype Riddim, which features fellow up-and-coming acts such as Ziggy Eva Strap and Eyesus and has been the talk of Toronto’s Dancehall scene in recent weeks. This single will have women dancing in clubs and sessions both across North America and in Jamaica as Love Ah Come Dung is dedicated to the females who are confident and aren’t hesitant to go after the men they want; showing actions instead of words.

But with the ladies and constant airplay on his mind with these two efforts that will infiltrate the party scene, Alty-B has also reach out to the streets with Run Up and Dung on the Duppy Bat Riddim in which he paints a hardcore yet imaginative picture of what will happen to those who negatively confront him.

“Mi seh mi nah haffi a pound a weed fi tek a bwoy life, say sommen mi nuh like yuh brain will fly weh  like a kite, faster than a motorbike, dem try fi cut mi with a knife, Smoke Shop and everything is alright,” he deejays.

Already the songs have been well-received on YouTube and are available for free download online as Alty-B once again unleashes his lyrical onslaught on Dancehall music for all to enjoy.

Fizzle Productions makes ‘Dreams’ come true with new compilation

Rarely will a musical production merge elements of various genres and sounds to produce a quality Riddim that will offer songs with different messages that connect to fans. However, one Canadian based Dancehall producer has found the right combination for his newly released project.

Andrew ‘Faze’ Greyson’s Fizzle Productions, in collaboration with Treajah Isle Studios has unveiled the Dreams Riddim, featuring a strong lineup of emerging Dancehall and Reggae acts based in Canada. With strong instrumentals and a mixture of Reggae, Dancehall and classical elements, the Dreams Riddim showcases tracks representing aspects of each genre.

Perhaps the most thought provoking single on the Riddim comes from rising Dancehall singjay, Alty-B with his single, Can’t Believe. This ‘based on a true story’ type effort was done in dedication to a close friend of his whose life was tragically cut short due to gun violence. Can’t Believe displays Alty-B’s raw emotion as he once again solidifies his lyrical content with meaning and legitimacy as he ascends within the Dancehall/Reggae ranks both in Canada and in Jamaica; earning airplay in both countries.

Additionally, the Dreams Riddim features former JUNO Award nominee, Tonya P who shows off her acclaimed singing credentials on the single, Stole Your Heart. The sensual love song speaks of women who’ve found their true love unexpectedly and captures the true essence of lover’s rock Reggae.

Meanwhile, Faze himself boasts a strong effort on his own production with Spotlight. Being a deejay in his own right, The Clarendon born musiciandelivers intriguing storytelling with Spotlight, telling the tale of a young girl who was jaded by the bright lights; foregoing the teachings that her parents passed on as she struggles to make it on her own.  Also, Jah Chosen speaks of a tough life growing up and the general struggles of surviving in the projects with his single, Woke Up This Morning while Eyesus does an inspirational track for fathers who play instrumental roles in their child’s development with, Daddy Is Home.

The Dreams Riddim, whichalso features 5 Star and Fire Lion, has garnered strong buzz since its April release and has become a fixture on Canadian and Jamaican radio stations. It also adds another achievement to the strong early resume of Fizzle Productions, which includes the Party Swag Riddim, Good Days Riddim and the Dancefloor Riddim, which features other emerging Jamaican acts based in Canada such as Exco Levi and Tiffie.
