Caribbean Music Heavyweights Take over NYC’s West Indian Day Parade.



Jamaica’s finest made their way to New York city’s Labour Day festivities this year, among them, one of the best female acts to hit the scene in recent time, Ms. Shenseea- the woman whose voice and accent just cannot be missed. The Jamaican artiste recently teamed up with Trinidad and Tobago’s Nailah Blackman on a track called, “Baddish”. This past weekend however, she was in New York and in her company were a few of Jamaica’s finest fellows.

Jamaica artistes spotted hanging out during Labour Day festivities.

This year’s West Indian Day Parade saw an outpouring of Caribbean acts. Hot97FM’s “Pon De Soca and Reggae Tip” excited many days prior to the actual festivities along the Eastern Parkway. Artistes like Busy Signal, Sean Paul, Kranium, Charly Black, Kevin Little, Rupee, Bunji Garlin and Tifa, were all a part of that event on September 1st. Of course, Bunji’s Apple Store appearance and Soca discussion was next on the agenda- this as the Viking heavily promoted it on his social media platforms, ensuring that the crowds came… and that they did.

Machel Montano made a surprise appearance at Rupee’s birthday bash.

Barbados’ Rupee held his birthday bash during the pre Labor Day enjoyment, bringing out fans and supporters of Soca to the Resorts World Casino in New York on Sunday. Kees, Fay Ann, Bunji, Road March King of T&T MX Prime, Kerwin Du Bois, Lyrikal, Skinny Fabulous, Teddyson John, Biggie Irie, Rayzor and Leonce of NYC’s Request Band, Ricardo Drue and even Machel Montano, were a part of it, among others. Rupee labeled the event, Tipsy- the name of his 2017 hit single that remains a consistent part of the music lineup on most Caribbean frequencies.

The Jamaican influence was however felt at other venues and when it came to Labour Day, artistes like Charly Black, Sean Paul and Shenseea were spotted hanging out and having a great time. T&T’s

Shurwayne Winchester and Terri Lyons were a part of the action on the streets of Brooklyn as well. Winchester mounted a truck and he and Lyons were photographed in the streets, during the excitement.

There have, so far, been no reports of violence related to the festival on the weekend. This year’s J’ouvert celebration kicked off at 6am, much to the disappointment of some, but by all accounts, the fun went on without hindrance.

Barbados’ Rihanna Does 30 Right! Makes Huge Business Move Like Only She Would!



Rihanna’s 30th birthday celebration included a big business move that could see the Barbados born Beaty rack up that dough, even while partying like the rockstar she is. Yesterday, even while celebrating the commencement of her “dirty thirties”, the Fenty brand creator released a new limited edition Fenty Beauty product- the Trophy Wife Highlighter. The super pigmented, metallic gold cream-to-powder was an instant hit when the brand debuted back in September 2017, according to

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Trophy Wife highlighter is available in a limited edition online.

The “Work” singer was certainly celebrated yesterday. A number of top tier celebs offered birthday shouts to Rih, among them ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown and DJ Khaled. Rihanna was pretty modest in her approach to the big 30th celebration however, posting via Instagram, an incredible “thank you” to her mother for her role in her life.

“10958 days ago @monica_fenty became a mother for the first time to her only daughter!” the singer wrote. “Today is just as much your birthday as it is mine! I love you mom!”

She also made sure to show her appreciation for the hard work and sacrifices that go into being a mom, writing, “Thank you for carrying me, birthing me, raising me, supporting me, teaching me, and loving me unconditionally! The woman I am today is because of everything that you are!”

“I thank God for perfectly hand picking you to be my mother when He sent my spirit to you! You are the greatest! Thank you!” 


The Fenty Beauty Killawatt: Dirty Thirty highlighter ($34) now comes in a gold box that reads “Dirty Thirty” and the product pan is engraved with “XXX.” Currently, it’s only available on Fenty Beauty’s website.
