Today, Grenada’s crowned King of Groovy Soca, V’ghn, is set to unleash a mega preview of a project he and his team have worked arduously, in the past year, to perfect and deliver to the world.

A five track EP, showcasing the artist’s unparalleled versatility, will likely blow the socks off music executives the world over. Fresh off a tour that saw the young entertainer touch places like Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, Turks and Caicos, Geneva Switzerland, Oslo Norway, Dubai and Amsterdam, V’ghn is rearing to go.

The EP will be released today.

Team member, International DJ Stephen excitedly said this project speaks volumes of the artiste’s ambitious nature and his personal mission to take the Caribbean’s energy, to every corner of the globe.

“The EP is basically a prelude to V’ghn’s debut album, which is aptly entitled, “XoniQ,” which phonetically reads, (X on IQ), a term created by the artiste to mean Unlimited IQ. “It’s a word that’s meant to describe V’ghn’s immense voracity for knowledge,” said Stephen.

The album is set for an April 2020 release but before that, five singles, which deliver an intrinsic view into the artiste’s musical mind, highlighting his love for Afrobeats, Afrofusion, R&B, Pop and tropical dancehall, will be shared with fans today.

V’ghn is excited to make a mark in the global music industry.

V’ghn stands sure of himself, with a pure heart and a thirst to be among the great creators of Caribbean music. Happily, he has shared in the musical credit for a number of the region’s popular entertainers, among them, Konshens, and Christopher Martin this year alone. And with a crown of his own from the land he hails, Grenada, the reigning Groovy Soca Monarch king of Grenada and Grenadian Cultural Ambassador, continues to aim high.

Fans of the young, dynamic artiste are encouraged to stay abreast of his every move, by following him @vhgnofficial on Instagram and via his website at www.vghnofficial.com.

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…”

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.
