Brooklyn-born and raised, 19-year-old artist Young Devyn is set to take the rap game by storm. Taking inspiration from the likes of Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill, Lauryn Hill, and Pop Smoke, Young Devyn’s style masters both storytelling and expert lyricism. Now, she shares the exciting news of signing to 4th & Broadway, the Iconic label relaunched by Island Records.
On her signing, Young Devyn said, “I’m very excited about joining a legacy label with legendary acts like Eric B. & Rakim and I truly believe my career as a professional recording artist is going to flourish by partnering with LaTrice Burnette and the 4th & Broadway team.” “Young Devyn is an incredible entertainer all around and an amazing lyricist,” said LaTrice Burnette (President 4th & Broadway/ EVP Island Records). “As a fellow Brooklynite, I am proud to have her be the first act to release music on 4th & Broadway, to represent for and carry the Brooklyn torch. She truly is the Baby Goat!”
Tuff Gong Collective (TGC), which is overseen by Cedella Marley, CEO of the Bob Marley Group of Companies, has also partnered with Island Records’ 4th & Broadway on Young Devyn and will represent Devyn and her repertoire in the Caribbean. In addition to her signing, Young Devyn also announces that her highly-anticipated debut Baby Goat EP will be released June 18th via 4th & Broadway. The news follows the rising artist’s previous releases of “Straight to It,” which first originated as a viral freestyle video, has garnered over half a million music video views, and was featured on VEVO’s CTRL Live Performance Series. The EP is also preceded by her fiery single “Act Bad” which has already amassed over 2 million music video views on WORLDSTARHIPHOP to date. OKAYPLAYER has also highlighted the emerging MC as an artist to watch in 2021. The EP is a dynamic offering with eight diverse tracks that encapsulate Young Devyn’s Brooklyn upbringing, vocal range, and Trinidadian roots. The young artist showcases her stellar rapping ability and melodic voice throughout the entirety of the Baby Goat EP while further solidifying her place in the industry. Young Devyn describes the road to completing her debut project in her Baby Goat EP Trailer. In the clip, the rising wordsmith eloquently recounts her struggles while reflecting on her journey to newfound success. The trailer serves as the artist’s official announcement of her long-awaited debut EP. Young Devyn details her latest project saying, “Baby Goat is the definition of two things. Brooklyn. Trinidad. From the melodies of my island roots to the grittiness of my Brooklyn upbringing, I finally show the world who I am.”
The young rapper’s popularity is growing at a rapid rate, and she’s already received praise from a host of industry notables including Nicki Minaj, Waka Flocka, Jermaine Dupri, Taraji P. Henson, and more.
Generation Z’s self-proclaimed “Baby G.O.A.T” is already renowned for her viral free-styling capabilities and skillful delivery. In her short career, the young artist has been covered by The Source, The Root, BET, and RESPECT. Though Young Devyn is new to the game, she carries herself with the class and confidence of a veteran while effortlessly navigating the music scene.
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.
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.
