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.

Machel Montano Mourns the King of Pop

MJ

Michael Jackson
August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009

[IN HIS OWN WORDS]

Condolences to the King’s family, friends and fans as we all mourn together! Michael Jackson will be missed but never forgotten. Even in death he was able to unite people of all creeds and colors and make them happy; he is the greatest entertainer that ever lived.

Machel Red Side


I and so many others owe our
careers to MJ – he encouraged my dream. So much of what I have done has been inspired and informed by him. His standards have set the stage for my goals and in this way he has touched so many.

It is also very important to note that he chose to use his influence for the greater good of mankind in the messages he delivered through songs like “We Are The World,” “Heal The World,” “Man In The Mirror,” “Black Or White,” “I Believe I Can Fly,” and so many more.

MJ was more than a man – he was a “moment in time,” and like Bob Marley, this moment will never end. Long live the King!
