While the untamable frenzy in the Caribbean last weekend centered around Jamaican dancehall and reggae icon, Buju Banton’s first post-release concert, there was a lot to take in amid the excitement. Machel Montano’s ongoing love affair stuck out like a sore thumb in our minds here at Ebuzztt, and in case you haven’t realized just how smitten the Soca taipan truly is, we’re here to prove it to you!

Buju’s Long Road to Freedom concert in Jamaica on Saturday brought the best of the best in Caribbean entertainment to the Jamaica National Stadium. From Tarrus Riley to Dj Khaled, Romain Virgo, Aidonia and Beenie Man among others, Caribbean celebs showed out and Trinidad and Tobago’s Machel Montano was among them.

In the thick of the massive crowd, Machel Montano made a very public appearance with the woman he’s been linked to for some time. Reneé Butcher, a pretty low key beauty, whose simple yet charming demeanor leaves us quite intrigued, was seen wrapped in Montano’s arms, swaying to the music of the Grammy award winning artist, both, she and Montano undeniably in their comfort zone with each other.

Machel Montano, possibly in wind down mode after a very visible Carnival season in Trinidad and Tobago, once collaborated with Buju Banton. The Soca artist had remixed his single, “Make Love” with the “Rasta Got Soul” hit maker. His relationship with Butcher, while informerly confirmed, has seen them on an apparent life journey with a lot of spiritual soul searching together.

During Carnival 2019 in T&T, Butcher’s presence was seen and felt. Photos showed the couple together on Valentine’s Day, coupled up affectionately. Butcher was a part of the Carnival Mas excitement as well, taking to the streets with Montano, Ashanti and the countless other celebrities partaking in the bliss of the season. What’s not to love?

Now, here are 5 reasons we love seeing this couple together:

  • Their energy as a couple is humble, grounded and easy.
  • She’s cute!
  • She has seemingly affected Machel in a positive way. His energy as an individual seems different since she became publicly announced.
  • Love WINS! At 44 years of age, we love the idea of seeing the King of Soca settle with someone truly suited to him, after all, how much longer will he subject himself to those touchy- feely females on the entertainment circuit! The time has come to just let real love WIN!

Beres Hammond is a legend in these parts and on Sunday night as he hosted his “Love From a Distance” virtual concert, he proved that greatness never ceases to amaze.

Beres has delivered his sweet, flavourful reggae love ballads for decades. On Sunday night, as thousands of his loyal fans around the world, streamed the virtual event, they were certainly reminded of the importance of good music, especially in times like these.

 

Beres, joined on stage by Buju Banton.

Reggae music has felt somewhat alienated in recent time, with the surge of more youthful, less melodic artistry, but all is not lost, and on Sunday, Beres accompanied by Marcia Griffiths, Buju Banton and even young dancehall sensation, Popcaan, fulfilled the silent desires of many, many people from around the world.

Vocals properly tuned, the 65-year-old hit maker, rendered some of his most memorable songs, among them, “Stop A Man from Trying,” “Rock Away”, “What One Dance Can Do” and many others. In a video clip, pre-recorded and inserted into the show, Beres told fans, “For all the well wishers, fans, family and friends and everyone, I am very saddened by the almost two years I haven’t seen you… it makes me feel bad. I’m trying to do this thing now, so we can stay in touch. Welcome to Beres…”

 

HERE’S WHAT YOU MAY HAVE MISSED.

Jamaica’s Sean Paul Gives The World ‘Live n Livin’; Says Dancehall Is Not Dead.

Jamaican dancehall artist, Sean Paul’s ‘Live N Livin’ is one of two albums from him, set for release this year. The album, according to a media statement issued, was inspired by the perception of members of the music industry that dancehall is dead. Confronting the sentiment head on, Sean Paul says he believes dancehall is alive and well, and maintains a strong pulse.

Sean Paul set to release two albums in 2021.


The first album being released, showcases over twenty artistes and even having proven himself over the years as an International dancehall trendsetter, Sean Paul says he still aims to highlight the significance of the genre while collaborating with different talented artists. Over the years, Sean Paul has made music with the likes of Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Sam Smith, blending and fusing his sound with world rhythms.


Live and Livin’ is dubbed “a collaborative effort,” with 16 tracks all featuring an accompanying artist. On the single, ‘Lion Heart’, Sean Paul stands solo. “It was important to me to show that in our genre of dancehall, we don’t need to clash in order to attain the spotlight. We don’t need to divide our fans to attain the rotations on the airwaves or streams. Over the years me, Shaggy, and more recently Koffee, Shenseea and others have been making it onto the world stage and we are not clashing with our co-workers, nor are we dividing our fans. This album ‘Live N Livin’ is an album I hold very dear to my heart because it shows the effort of collaboration over confrontation,” he said.


The album features veteran artists like Buju Banton, Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, Busy Signal, Mavado, and the younger generation of artists such as Chi Ching Ching, Intense, Skillibeng, and Govana and more.


‘Live N Livin’ is set to be released on March 12th and is executively produced by Sean Paul’s label Dutty Rock Productions and distributed by ONErpm.
