Karamanti Releases Powerful Motivational Video for her single “Don’t Give Up”

1

Karamanti has just released the official video for her single “Don’t Give Up,” recorded on the Missing Piece Riddim by Rhome Records.

00-don't give up

The Riddim also features Khago, Teflon and several other Jamaican artists and it was released in September of 2015 and distributed globally by 21st Hapilos Distribution.

“Don’t Give Up” is a motivational track that would be classified as Caribbean pop (though it has a very strong dancehall sound). A few scenes for the video were shot in Ontario, Canada, while others were done in Kingston, Jamaica. Unlike most music videos, “Don’t Give Up” does not have any actors, instead, real, everyday people were asked about their dreams, obstacles and determination, or lack thereof. After sharing their story, they were followed with a camera so that the public could get a glimpse into their struggles and their commitment to not giving up.

Divine Earth Essencereleased a collaborative pop-reggae version of Kemar ‘Flava’ McGregor’s one-drop classic, “Beautiful Lady,” last Friday on iTunes.  The new single – a romantic duet that interpolates Divine Brown’s sensual vocals with Gyptian’s world-famous melody – will be featured on Divine Brown’s upcoming album, which is due for release in 2013 by Universal Music Group.

The duet version of “Beautiful Lady” reflects McGregor’s newfound pop culture affinities – adding Canada’s favorite R&B songstress to the bubbly character of Gyptian’s melody, energized by a cheery, beachfront roots riddim. “’Beautiful Lady’ is a feel-good song,” said McGregor. “Divine Brown makes the song even more romantic, and the riddim takes the song to another level. It captures the feel-good vibe of the original, but the new beat has a pop feel that makes the song even more mainstream. It’s more commercial and radio friendly.”

Divine Brown said “Beautiful Lady” represents one of her favorite songwriting themes. She said the song will have a sensual appeal among reggae fans, because of the spur-of-the-moment romance motif in the song’s lyrics.  “I want people to feel sexy when they hear ‘Beautiful Lady’ – it’s such a sensual track about love at first sight,” said Divine Brown. “Love songs are one of the most universal themes in music. Everyone has fallen in love. I tend to draw from personal experiences when I write love songs. The process is relaxing and fun.”

Born in Toronto, Canada, Divine Brown is a four-time Juno Award nominee (Canada’s equivalent of the Grammy Awards), and she won the Juno Award for “R&B Soul Recording of the Year” in 2009. She has a five-octave vocal range, and her singles have been featured on the Billboard Dance Club Play Chart and the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 Chart.
