“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.

‘How We Living’ is another powerful and thought provoking video from Cherine Anderson. The track was produced by Gussie Clark and Cherine and is one of the featured tracks on her latest mixtape JA9.25.
How We Living? is the question asked by Cherine, opening our eyes to some of the realities faced by many while at the same time urging listeners to “take responsibility” to overcome the struggles amidst harsh realities. This heartfelt song was cleverly penned by Cherine with assistance from Chevaughn; with each lyric commanding, inspiring and uplifting. Her mellow and soulful voice does even further justice as ‘How We Living’ takes you where street meets sweet.
With a creative and captivating outline, Cherine conceptualized and directed the video which runs more like a mini-movie. The video is compelling, a must see and will capture both hearts and minds as much as the song does. Although the video features the struggles of a young lady, her male audience is not left out as the video creatively captures the message of the song with issues that are real and affects both men and women.
YouTube – Etana – Blessings feat. Alborosie. The subject is love, we love the song, we love reggae stars Etana and Alborosie, and now we love the video too. Need I say more?
