He may have started off singing parang as a pre-teen, but at 22, Trinidad and Tobago’s Tyrel Ross is delivering island pop- a genre saturated with that fresh Caribbean vibe that the world just can’t seem to get enough of. If you’ve never heard about Tyrel, here’s what you should know :

Tyrel’s studying International Transportation and Trade at Suny Maritime College in New York but he’s presently at home in Trinidad until the end of August when he’ll return to continue his studies. His passion for music just cannot be overlooked however, and he told EBUZZTT that he’s received a lot of support from his step-father in the pursuit of his musical ambitions. His mother, he says, keeps him driven academically and for that, he is tremendously grateful.

The release of his brand new single, ‘This Girl is Hot’, complete with a video that’s already uploaded to YouTube, boasts a message that’s much bigger than what’s shared on the surface level. “For me personally, the song’s hook, ‘this girl is hot’, stands for a lot more than physical beauty. I want women to understand that hot doesn’t just mean their physical makeup, but their mind, their attitude, their vibe, their flair, the way they carry themselves,” he said, encouraging females to believe in themselves. “No matter how you think others perceive you, that shouldn’t really matter. You should know that no matter what, you are beautiful ; you were made beautiful. Just believe in yourself and you”ll be just fine.”

A former Holy Cross College student, Tyrel plays the guitar and says he wants to learn the piano. He has a great appreciation for music and it shows in the quality of what he delivers. The new track, which was produced at Dan Borgers Studios in Toronto Canada was co-written by Jenna Nation Music out of Toronto and Ross himself. “I worked with Dan Borgers and Jenna Nation on my previous release and I really enjoyed that experience so we did it again,” he said. Already, Tyrel says he’s been receiving a lot of good feedback on the new release, explaining that while at home in Trinidad and Tobago, the urban market facilitates mostly Soca and Dancehall music, he feels there’s a growing appreciation for Island Pop. “I’ve been influenced musically by many of our local artistes. I love what Kalpee’s been doing musically and it’s good to see how far he’s reached,” said Tyrel, noting that Kees and Voice are two other favourites of his. “Internationally, I love all kinds of musical genres really. From John Legend to Chronixx, Hood Celebrity, Koffee, Ed Sheran ; once the music sounding good, I’m vibin’ to it..”

Buju Brings the ‘Summer Bubbler’. Entertains Fans Online. VIDEO INSIDE.

Approx. < 1 min read

New music now making the rounds, reggae and dancehall heavyweight, Buju Banton stays focused and happy at home in Jamaica, delivering to fans worldwide, pieces of himself via online platforms like Instagram. On Wednesday, on the heels of news that he’d unleashed a brand new summer bubbler with the ladies in mind, Gargamel solidified the promotion of the track with a mini concert that engaged fans from as far as Ghana.

It’s been almost two years since Buju’s career, like that of many other Caribbean artistes, has been halted- with no major concert events being planned. He appeared alongside Beres Hammond on a virtual stage in February this year, but of course, that was nothing like a live show would be. Still, Buju’s creativity remains powerful and present.

The latest single, “Summer Body”, is aimed at offering fans a little fun and enjoyment, according to the artist. In a statement, the song is described as one that borrows signature sounds from the 90s reggae/dancehall era and features Buju’s quintessential deejay style over a hardcore Dancehall riddim. The song was produced by Buju himself, alongside dancehall staple Jon Jon. According to Buju’s team, the new release encourages fans to celebrate life, remove doubt and any sense of restriction from their minds.

On Wednesday, as he engaged fans on his Instagram live, Buju smiled happily, singing his new release and even belting out familiar tunes from the past. Take a look at how that went down…

Shenseea’s New Video “Run, Run” Bashed As “Demonic.” Rvssian Retorts.

In just five days, Shenseea’s latest music video, “Run Run” has been streamed over 2.4 million times on YouTube. Whether that’s fueled by criticism over the “demonic” imagery of the video, as some call it, or just plain curiosity and fan loyalty, we’re uncertain, but 2.4 million streams in a week, is big news.

Costuming from the new video for “Run run

Earlier this month, Shenseea announced her new management alignment with Canadian, music exec, Wassim ‘Sal’ Slaiby. In an Instagram post, the Jamaican artist who had previously been managed by Romeich Major, said she was happy to now have a manager with “such dynamic character on my team.” Shen alluded to big moves ahead, saying, “we’re about to unfold a new chapter.”

Just a few days later, a promotional video was posted to her IG, showing what was on the way. The video for “Run Run” portrayed visuals that leaned more toward the international trends seen in videos like Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B’s “WAP” and Lil Nas X’s “Montero” music videos. Some fans dug in after the video’s release on Friday. “Omg, I’m so sorry for Shenseea… she don’t know what she’s getting into,” one person wrote on YouTube. Another said, “We need more music videos with artists ascending into Heaven, normalize ascending instead of descending into hell.” Some even posted prayers for their Jamaican dancehall sweetheart.

The new single is the first track off of Shen’s debut album. On the weekend, Shenseea posted a scene that showed her being lowered into what one can only assume is “hell.” She wore bull horns in the excerpt. She told fans this was her favorite scene.

In response to comments against the visual creativity, producer Rvssian took to Twitter. “They say people sell them soul. But how much do these type of things go for? 😂 and is a store or what? Mi confuse😂😂” he retorted. He continued by saying that he praises God and has given all his success and credit to Him, lashing out at critics with biblical reference, saying, “The Bible say Matthew 7 – do not judge…do you know the rest? But you guys are more holy than we are- look into ya self.”

His response was quite similar to one given by incarcerated dancehall artist, Vybz Kartel who was asked about allegations that he had sold his soul for fame, by On Stage host, Winford Williams, prior to his incarceration.
