Here is what we found this week.......Enjoy!

Instead of not doing a blog this week we decided to list a bunch of good songs that released. I did not find anything great just good. Maybe this should be the start of an additional playlist? What do you think?


Protoje "Third Time's The Charm"
With his 6th album, every album has incorporated time into it's title. The first two spoke of the year. The third was "Ancient Future," while "A Matter Of Time," "In Search Of Time" and "Third Time The Charm" round out the triology of the times. Since his joining RCA Records the sound has changed to more of an urban sound and that has not changed. The title track starts it and is in synch with this change. 'Hills' has the sound too yet the flow and lyricism are impressive and one of 3 singles. Jesse Royal is 'Family' and joins Oje on the second single and third track of the album. Times returns on 'Incient Stepping' and is the first reggae track with light hip hop drums. It 'steps' proper. Reggae continues returns to domination not only on 'Dreamy Eyes,' on the album as a whole. The majority of the rest of the album is reggae based. The fourth single with Jorja Smith arrives to announce the album again as 'Ten Row Cane.' The ladies are strong out of his camp InnDiggNation and Ms. Smith is no exception. The boss lady is Lila Ike and she is featured on 'Late At Night.' This and 'Eyes' have the feel of an old reggae track. This song coincided with the announcement of the album. 'Here Comes The Morning' is introduced by his daughter who has been a big inspiration of the last 2 albums that returns to the last of the urban sound. Samory I is the last featured artist on the album's last track 'Heavy Load.' He has such a unique sound and you hear the cry in his voice. Music lovers and reggae fans will be content musically. His lyricism has always been witty and strong while his delivery is always on point. Hopefully this is a return to the true reggae roots man he has shown us. Nothing wrong with expanding your sound it helps us appreci-love what we do and don't have.
King Lorenzo 'Gun Play'
The main issue in Jamaica. King Lorenzo addresses in a serious yet sweet way 'Gun Play.'


Maoli ft. Fiji & Jamey Ferguson  'Shoot Down'
A pure Polynesian connection of sweetness on 'Shoot Down.' It's a Maoli song and features two greats Fiji legendary reggae singer with singer/saxophonist formerly of KatchaFire Jamey Ferguson. Niceness of good vibes that can't be a 'Shoot Down.'


Nadia Batson 'Soca Party'
Who doesn't like a 'Soca Party?' It's full of vibes. Nadia Batson brings it this time on the 'Road Bounce riddim.' Get ready!!!!!
