Tobago-born Calypso Rose is more than a diva. She’s a boss. In fact, the almost 79-year-old hit maker who was last year awarded  the Grand Prize for World Music award at the Sacem Grand Prix in France, is set to make her debut at Coachella, in 2019.

The festival, which has seen the likes of Beyonce, Madonna and Kendrick Lamar hit the stage in previous years, is a major music and arts showcase and party that sees thousands flood the venue over a two weekend period. This year, between April 12th and April 21st, Childish Gambino, Janelle Monae, Diplo, Ariana Grande, Khalid, Solange, Kid Cudi, Pusha and Wiz Khalifa will be a part of the musical excitement. Added to that is none other that this amazing Calypso icon of Trinidad and Tobago, Calypso Rose.

Rose’s team took to Instagram to make the announcement, relaying the artiste’s excitement to be a part of the lineup. “I can’t wait to sing, dance and enjoy this time with all of you,” she said. Rose recently unleashed a new single with Trinidad and Tobago’s king of Soca, Machel Montano- a track called, “Young Boy”. It’s the second time, in recent years that the pair have worked together to create music in the carnival season. Separately, Rose, who released an album last year called, “So Calypso,” toured throughout Europe last year, showing the people in that part of the world that she certainly remains a powerful force on the music circuit. We can’t wait to see and hear her in all her glory, at Coachella.

Selena Gomez has 150 million Instagram followers. 57.6 million people follow her on Twitter. Last week, the actress and singer broke her silence on the effects of social media on today’s generation, saying it is dangerous. Gomez had been speaking during a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival. She lamented that at this point, it’s quite impossible to even make social media safe again.

For people like Caribbean native, Majah Hype, social media can be credited for their careers.

The internet has sure taken over our lives, hasn’t it? Truth is, it’s a pretty good tool if used for what’s right. But then again, what is right?… and what’s wrong? That’s pretty subjective, some would argue.

The irony. In a world where a man can be entrapped miles away from his home country, detained for near 10 years, released, and return to being an even bigger symbol of power and positivity than he ever was, proves there are no limits. Buju Banton’s fire blazes on.

Internationally acclaimed multi millionaire music mogul, DJ Khaled’s been a close friend and ally of Mark Myrie, the artiste we all fondly refer to as Buju Banton, for some 19 years. Khaled, a US national born to Palestinian parents, has been grounded enough to know the sweet beauty that can often be found in the harsh rubble of ghetto cultured living. It’s no surprise that his latest album release, an honorary tribute to his young son, Asahd, features a few of Jamaica’s best, among them Buju Banton, Sizzla Kalonji and Mavado.
