He’s soaring like no other in the industry right now and there’s no sign that he’s about to slow down. Like a cannon ball of good vibes, Jamaican dancehall superstar, Charly Black has been impressing the world, delivering hit after hit of music that embodies the true character of Caribbean people;  And while the unedited versions of his songs are a far cry from the raunchy, sexually charged lyrics you’ll hear when his music’s delivered in its raw format, the sweetness of his style is incomparable.

Black’s a pretty normal guy- at least by industry standards. In a post Carnival event in Trinidad this past March, Black told the crowd, “I’m drunk like a M%thafu*ker”. His blatant yet humorous truth was appreciated. He meant no harm and the people understood. On the EBUZZTT Instagram page, Jamaican Radio personality, Sparkiebaby wrote of Black :

“Good yute. Him a come from far and he is consistent. He deserves all the success  he is seeing. Yes @charlytrelawnyblack u deserve everything Mr Rio Bueno.”

We’ve been paying pretty close attention to the “Party Animal” singer. Last year that single achieved diamond certification in Panama, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Belize, and Guatemala – having sold in excess of 600,000 units in those territories. Amid it all, he’s seemed to have remained humble and relatively unfazed. On social media, the entertainer continues to keep fans abreast of his life- spending time with his kids and enjoying life as he knows how. In a recent interview with the FADER Magazine, the entertainer spoke of his desire to represent his parish of Trelawny from a very early age.

“I’ve never heard someone say ‘I’m a country man,’ so I decided I’m going to be proud of where I’m from. I’ve been representing my parish from before I even was a star.”

Gun violence and the effectiveness of Caribbean policing may be making the international spotlight, this on the heels of the murder of 21-year-old Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne, Barbadian superstar, Rihana’s cousin. The young man was shot and killed on Boxing Night in Barbados while walking through a track near his home. He had been shot multiple times.

Rihanna who had been home for the holidays, expressed grief via her social media pages, writing:

“RIP cousin… can’t believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms! Never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body!!! Love you always man.”

Back in February, the young man had cited the internationally acclaimed singer as his source of happiness. He had posted a message beneath a photo of them together, in celebration of Rihanna’s 29th birthday. “Your presence in my life is a source of joy and happiness,” he wrote.

Police are now on the hunt for the killer. Rihanna has since called for gun violence to cease.

Rihanna Does Christmas in Barbados But The Worst Thing Happened.

Rihanna gets the flu in Barbados.

There’s nothing like a Caribbean Christmas. That’s why one of the world’s biggest celebs chose her homeland of Barbados to enjoy the season. Rihanna’s been hard at work all year long so it was only fitting that some R&R at Christmas be accompanied by the warmth of her family and friends back at home. Boy oh boy, the blessing she is to Barbados, if only for tourism. Thing is, while she was excited to be with her mom and the rest of the gang, the singer was struck by the worst luck ever.

No, Rihanna was not robbed. She did not get food poisoning either. Unfortunately, she got the dreaded flu. Imagine leaving the wintery weather in the US only to be struck with the flu bug in the tropics. That sucks! She still managed to get all dressed up in a red sheer gown for a special night it seemed though.

Rihanna has unleashed 14 new lipstick shades.

Rihanna’s been working hard over the past few months. Her FENTY Beauty Makeup line has racked up millions in sales and earlier today, the brand unleashed 14 new shades of lipstick in Rihanna’s Mademoiselle lipstick line. The beauty collection only had two lip products prior to this unveiling- a neutral gloss and a bright red liquid lipstick.

The Mademoiselle collection boasts 14 shades of bold matte lip hues in shades that range from lavender to dark brown and from baby blue to navy. On Twitter, a message issued to fans suggested that everyone give the #trophywife shade a try.  “We got the perfect camera effect for y’all to get into that highlight,” the tweet said. It was explained that those wishing to try it out simply had to add the effect to their Facebook camera on their mobile devices and take a selfie in the Fenty frame. A yellow toned flash of highlight would automatically be added to get the highlight, the brand’s social media rep said.
