“Jack Hammer” is the summertime hit from QQ (“One Drop”), already a hit in the Caribbean and now breaking through in the States. The track is supported by consistent club play and a strong social media campaign through YouTube videos and Instagram @qqworld.

“Richest Girl” is the lead single off of Etana‘s forthcoming album, I Rise (autumn 2014, VP Records). Produced by legendary Jamaican arranger/composer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Clive Hunt, “Richest Girl” is a song about recognizing the truly important things in life, with the “Strong One” voicing the sentiment “I could lose it all, but one thing that is true, if I wake up next to you, I’m the richest girl.”

Fay Ann Lyons new hit “Catch Me” is primed to take the Soca Queen to whole other level.  Already getting play with Caribbean outlets, the lead single from her debut VP Records album showcases the vocalist against an EDM flavor that is catching on everywhere.
