tami-chynn-wayne-marshallOne of Dancehall’s power couples will be welcoming a little bundle of joy later in the near future as Tami Chynn and Wayne Marshall are expecting their first child together later this year.

Chynn made the announcement via her official Facebook page late Wednesday night shortly after Marshall teased fans on his Twitter page by saying “Nobody don’t sleep. Big announcement coming up….or a better me wait till tomorrow…??”

Chynn’s status update read, “@Wayne_Marshall & I are so happy to announce that we will be welcoming our first child later this year. We are over the moon & giving thanx. Thanx to you all for your continued love and support as we enter this very special time in our lives!!!”

Within minutes, her status was liked thousands of times with many of her 156,000+ fans on the social media site, offering congratulatory comments. Some even wondered why it took them so long to have a child, with one comment stating, FINALLY! *pops champagne*

Marshall followed up soon thereafter with his own status update.

Top 10: Jamaican music industry’s sexiest female personalities

To leave an indelible mark within the Dancehall/Reggae industry, you not only have to showcase outright skill and determination but also have some amount of sex appeal.

The combination of a delightful personality, sharp intellect and attractive figure allows females who ply their trade within the local music industry to build strong fan bases while acclimating deserved accolades. From artistes to media personalities and even dancers, the Dancehall/Reggae industry has produced several females who’ve embodied said sentiments. Ten in particular currently personify those qualities; acquiring mass popularity in the process.

10. Mystic Davis: Dancers are wholeheartedly unappreciated within the Dancehall/Reggae framework as they’re considered as the background in many music videos. However, Mystic Davis possibly defies that logic. With unbelievable flexibility showcased throughout her craft and an hourglass shape to match, Davis hails as arguably the most popular dancer in Jamaica and possibly the Caribbean.

With videos such as Vybz Kartel’s Go Go Wine, Sean Kingston and Nicki Minaj’s Letting Go and several others on her resume, Davis stands out in ways which many other dancers would become side elements. Plus, if you’ve ever watched her perform live in short shorts, you’d see why.

 

 

 

9. D’Angel: Despite a turbulent six months that included her divorce from Beenie Man, model turned Dancehall artiste, D’Angel still continues to prove that she’s one of the genre’s sexiest divas. Songs such as Blaze, Come Over amongst others have showcased that fusion of made-for-runway looks as well as lyrical dexterity, making her one of Dancehall’s most respected acts.

Though she did lose some popularity amongst fans since the divorce, she still hasn’t lost the qualities which made her attractive since her debut in 2005: Independence, beauty and intellect, all of which make her an interesting catch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8. Tiana – Perhaps the fastest rising female artiste in quite some time, Tiana not only made herself relevant within the Dancehall ranks, she asserted a strong presence in the industry. She made no stronger announcement as a potential superstar than with the release of Pum Pum Phat, a remake of Popcaan’s chart-topping smash, Ravin’. The risqué single showcased a hardcore, sexually appeasing side of the self-proclaimed “Princess of Dancehall” that fans never saw previously, making this curvaceous diva a household name.

Additionally, an unheard of 11 videos including Bruk Out and Whine and Gyal Mi Luv Yuh (featuring Konshens) as well her intellect; shown while making a defiant stance against what she described a ‘sexist’ music industry labeled her as a very reputable force. A deejay of the year candidate and upcoming superstar, her resume seemingly could include several more accolades going forward.

 

 

 

7. Pepita Little: Though currently out of a job after her recent release from the Television Jamaica (TVJ) show, Intense, it’s inconceivable to think that Pepita Little aka Chica Pepita won’t find her way back onto everyone’s television screen sooner rather than later.

For three years, her bubbly personality, easy-going approach to her hosting duties and a bust line that’s hard to ignore made her a popular figure within the industry. Additionally, she served as a backstage host on Digicel Rising Stars and copped a Youth View Awards nomination for Media Personality of the Year.

Despite her recent setback, Pepita has returned to spotlight in strong fashion with the release of her highly acclaimed debut single, Luv Luv Me. Given her versatility there’s no doubt that this is only the beginning of Pepita’s journey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Timberlee: Sexy in two different personalities, posh and gangstress, Timberlee attracts several eyes and ears with her sultry vocals and class-personified physical attributes. Both personalities were on full display during her single on the female-dominated Bedroom Riddim with the single, Inna Mi Bedroom.

A shape to behold with confidence displayed in several singles such as Bubble Like Soup and Heels, Timberlee remains a sex symbol with her crafty word play and accompanying physical attributes.

 

 

 

5. Stacious: Similar to Timberlee, Stacious’ thought-provoking physique makes her easily identifiable figure within the local music industry. Often known for her pulsating singles and racy dressing in videos, Stacious earned comparisons to the “Queen of Dancehall,” Lady Saw, who rose to prominence for similar antics.

Additionally, Stacious’ lyrics back up said comparison as past singles such as Goodaz Clap and Make It Snappy as well as more recent singles like Come Into My Room (alongside Mavado) and Got It Like That.

 

 

 

4. Tifa: Perhaps the best at her musical craft amongst females, Tifa continues to dazzle fans, male and female, with her strong physical attributes while continuing to unleash smash hits. As her videos for Move Yuh Body and Get Flat proved last year, Tifa has a unique, classy fashion sense. Combine that with her no-holds barred lyrical display, and this prominent diva has stamped her authority on the Jamaican music framework.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Ce’Cile: It’s hard to believe that Ce’Cile has been in the mainstream spotlight for over ten years now as she seemingly hasn’t aged. An obviously attractive and sensual persona made the singjay one of Jamaica’s musical stalwarts.

Never afraid to show off her smooth skin, Ce’Cile embraced the sex symbol status with videos like Hot Like We, Hot Like That and several others. Permanent eye candy in her own right, she continues to stay relevant within an ever changing Jamaican music framework; recently releasing the highly acclaimed album, Jamaicanization.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Tami Chynn: Dancehall singjay, Wayne Marshall must feel like the luckiest man on Earth as he has the sensual songstress, Tami Chynn to proudly boast as his wife. Chynn never ceases to amaze onlookers with her natural beauty and heartwarming vocals.

Classic songs such as Over and Over, Hyperventilating and Certified Diva, featuring the aforementioned Tifa, had fans locked into her presence. An effervescent sense of style, class and wit made Chynn a very lovable figure. A musician, host or a part-time charity worker, Chynn’s place as an internationally-regarded superstar will forever remain. Plus, as she proved with Neva Know, she has some spice to her also.

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Yanique Barrett: Jamaican music fans have only known her for a short time, but certainly there’s a long list of men who’ve surely kept this media personality on their watch.Debuting as host of Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall in March 2011, Yanique Barrett quickly won over fans of the highly regarded talent show with her curvaceous figure, outgoing personality and several sexy dance moves. Now earning strong acclaim for her strong work and intellect, Barrett continues to spread her wings as a host/presenter as she also co-hosts E-Blaze on FAME FM as well as RETV 5 to 7 Live.The only sad part about this young starlet, for her male fans anyway, is that she’s already married. If you listen closely, the collective sighs from men can be heard worldwide.

Celine Dion and local artistes shine at Jamaica Jazz and Blues festival

Nous t’aimons! Or “We love you” in English. That became the sentiment from Jamaican fans at the end of a thrilling three day Jamaica Jazz and Blues 2012 festival, capped off by the effervescent presence of French-Canadian songstress, Celine Dion.

The Grammy-winning sensation graced the Greenfield Stadium in Trelawny late Friday night; her first ever performance on Jamaican soil. As Dion entered the stage, shouting “Hello Jamaica!” she immediately garnered several shouts of appreciation from the locals as the prominent singer opened with her classic single, I Drove All Night.

Dion made her debut performance in the island count as she sparked memories with hits like Beauty and the Beast, Where Does My Heart Beat Now and Because You Loved Me, which triggered a slow dance session amongst the patrons. Additionally, Dion shared the stage with Jamaican Reggae singer, Diana King, who recently returned to the island to unveil some new projects. King and Dion unleashed a rousing duet with the performance of Treat Her Like A Lady.

Dion’s hour-long set featured four costume changes and even a wardrobe malfunction as a short gold mini dress she rocked on stage accidentally flashed fans looking below. Nevertheless, it was Dion’s performances that proved more eye-popping as she sang more classics such as It’s All Coming Back To Me Now, All By Myself and the resoundingly popular soundtrack of the classic Titanic movie, My Heart Will Go On.

Overall, Dion’s experience with Jamaican fans proved enjoyable as she even expressed regret for not visiting the island sooner.

“I have some making up to do for all that lost time. I can’t believe we’re really here in your beautiful country; the home of the great Bob Marley, the best place on earth to get an amazing plate of jerked chicken!” she said during her performance.

Furthermore, Dion wished fans a Happy 50th year of Independence as they showered her with love throughout the set.

Earlier that night, Dancehall/Reggae superstars, Shaggy and Richie Stephens were honored following strong performances of their own. After performing several of his classics alongside fellow artistes, Rayvon and Rik Rok, Shaggy received an award from Jazz and Blues organizers, honoring his contribution for promoting Jamaican culture worldwide. Meanwhile, Stephens, who performed Live Your Life alongside German Reggae star, Gentleman, copped an award celebrating his nearly two decades of contributions towards Jamaican music.

Local Reggae superstars such as Tami Chynn, Tessanne Chin, Christopher Martin, Damian Marley and Etana gave strong accounts of themselves on stage during the event as well as Dancehall stalwart, Agent Sasco and Dancehall patriarch, Yellowman who performed classics such as I’m Getting Married, Zungu Zungu Zeng, amongst others.

Veteran Reggae acts such as Half Pint, Maxi Priest, George Nooks, John Holt and Marcia Griffiths also proved their capabilities with strong sets. Griffiths, Holt and the aforementioned Yellowman each were honored for their abilities to pave the way for today’s generation of Dancehall/Reggae artistes.

Celine Dion wasn’t the only overseas-based superstar to leave an indelible mark on Jazz and Blues as Canadian songstress, Jully Black, Trinidadian soca superstar, Destra Garcia, American R&B superstar, Cee-Lo Green as well as Heads of States (consisting of former New Edition members) all dazzled the Greenfield Stadium stage.

Tami Chynn eager to leave Universal

tamichynnSongstress Tami Chynn is in the midst of parting ways with major international label Universal Motown Records, who she signed a four-album deal with in 2005. Her yet to be released album, Primadonna, would have been the artiste’s first major project on the label.

Having been signed to Universal at age 24, years later Tami Chynn has yet to see the full fruits of her labour.

The artiste recently gained international attention when she teamed up with Akon and producing partner RedOne in early 2007, releasing Frozen – which enjoyed time on Billboard’s Dance Music Club list. Chynn also signed unto Pepsi’s ‘Kung Fu Pepsi’ campaign, working alongside Akon and going on tour with seminal boy band New Kidz on the Block.

Yet, despite the successes she has had in recent times, Chynn is ready to be released from Universal Records and refocus on her love for music.

Comparing her relationship with the label to that of an abusive relationship, Chynn is keeping her fingers crossed that the split will materialise.When asked what are her reasons for leaving the label, Chynn stated: “I just don’t think they know what they were doing with me, I don’t fit into any mould that they have and it’s difficult when you don’t fit into what they want for you.”

Chynn’s Primadonna album was to be released by Universal from 2008 but, according to Chynn, if she is released from the contract she will have to give up all rights to Primadonna as well as her other album, Out of Many One, which was released by Universal in Japan.

“It’s very sad, that’s all me and those albums are connected to my heart strings, but you know what, I’m an artiste and I can do more stuff,” she said.

As to recent rumours that Chynn and Akon were no longer on good standing, she said that there was no bad blood between the two and they “might or might not” be working together more in the future.

Chynn is currently working with various producers around Kingston and has no plans to sign to any other label for the immediate future. Recently she has completed tracks such as Forever Your Girl for producer Baby G on the ‘Good Love’ rhythm as well as The Way That I Love You from Arif Cooper.

Speaking of love, after keeping her relationship under wraps from the public eye, Chynn admitted, “yes Wayne (Marshall) and I are in a relationship. It has been for a long time now and we’re not trying to hide from it.”

As to rumours that the two are planning to get married this year, Chynn denied them. She, however, said that Marshall was someone she would absolutely consider marrying.
