On the heels of the release of his seventh studio album, ‘Live N Livin’, dancehall artist, Sean Paul has released the visuals for one of his tracks “Everest,”which features dancehall artistes Masicka and Skillibeng.

The video was directed by Kieran Khan Productions and was shot in Kingston, Jamaica. The portrayal signifies the idea of “collaboration over confrontation,” which Sean Paul delivers throughout the album. “As the great Capleton says, music is a mission, not a competition. I believe we should use music to make a joyful noise unto the Lord. The division in our genre, many times is senseless,” he said, adding, “We are all here to entertain our fans, provide for our loved ones and live a good life. Together we can be so much more powerful if we collaborate, instead of segregating ourselves and our crews. Everest is a perfect example of that.”

The internationally recognised entertainer highlighted the production skills of Demarco and thanked fellow artistes, Masicka and Skillibeng for their involvement.

Sean Paul is currently gearing up for his virtual Dreamstage performance on Saturday, May 8 live from Jamaica.

SEAN PAUL ON TRINIBAD STYLE.

Over the past few weeks, Sean Paul has appeared on several Trinidad and Tobago media platforms. He’s discussed the Trinibad music genre in various contexts, even rating the talent of some of the artistes who are a part of the movement.

One of the most recent expressions covered by Overtime TT and published in the Newsday newspaper hears the artist call for balance. “This music is to tell people what’s going on in our lives and I encourage people fi talk the truth every time. A lot ah time now we kinda embellishing or over exaggerating or over glorifying ah violent type ah lifestyle like it is the realist thing – like we get up every morning and drink we tea and buss gun inna boy head – and that ain’t true, or else there would be none of us left on earth. Scene? So, that’s my only thing with the badness: meh just wha big up everybody who ah do music and say yes, yuh must reflect the badness that is in society cause yeah, because that is what the music is for, but also tell the real story dem – tell de story when yuh shoot somebody an afi go hide inna hill and yuh cyah see yuh baby mother nor yuh baby dem for months, yuh understand?. He went on to tell the TriniBad artiste, “Tell de story when police ah come look fuh yuh and yuh frighten and yuh paro because yuh cyah even trust yuh best friend cause dem will sell you out cause dem know wha yuh do. So tell dem story dey too, not just the ones where you afi the baddest ting and no boy cyah test cause if dem test ah pure problems and violence!”

Sean Paul has called on the artistes to strike a balance in the music even as he saluted Trinidad and Tobago acts like Jahllano and Prince Swanny for keeping the dancehall genre alive and telling the stories of life in Trinidad.

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

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.
