Samuel Medas Delivers Another Catchy Soca Tune “Stadium” (@SamuelMedas)

In mid January Maria Jackson Magazine published an article about a catchy soca-gospel track called “Overflow,” performed by Guyanese recording artist Samuel Medas. In that story we said that the song was so good that we can see it being played at all the biggest soca fetes and road marches around the world.

Regarding Samuel‘s newest release, “Stadium,” we’re now saying that it is guaranteed to cross over into secular playlists. The brand new soca song, which shows a more energetic side of the gospel singer, is all about our collective desire to get back to our lives the way they were prior to the pandemic.

Mr Eazi’s New EP “Something Else” Is Out Now (@mreazi)

Afropop artist Mr Eazi has released his new EP, Something Else. It is now available on all digital music platforms courtesy of Eazi’s own Banku Music label and emPawa Africa.

Produced by Killertunes and E Kelly, lead single “The Don” is a dramatic, opera-inspired slice of afro trap. On “E Be Mad,” the album’s second single, producer Kel P surrounds Eazi’s sonorous tenor with the textures of vintage Ghanaian highlife music.

In addition to Killertunes, E Kelly and Kel P, Something Else also features production from Spellz, Blaq Jerzee, and Jaylon. Its lone guest (on “Cherry”) comes from Kenya’s Xenia Manasseh, one of 30 emerging artists handpicked by Eazi to participate in the emPawa30 talent incubator.

India Arie Collaborates With Jake Isaac On New Single “Gold” (@indiaarie @iamjakeisaac)

One of the reasons we like India Arie and are always supporting her work is because she is 100% authentic. Nowadays artists that have achieved her level of success tend to be very ingenuine and in some cases outright fake.

India Arie literally just released a new song with British singer and musician Jake Isaac. Based on her post on social media, which we’ve shared below, it is clear that she is all about the music, not the fame, stats or anything of that sort.

The new song is titled “Gold” and it is now available on all music platforms.
See India Arie‘s post below:

New Song : GOLD Jake Isaac ft. India Arie
I met @iamjakeisaac via IG summer of 2020 ~ he asked if I’d do a song with him, so I went to listen to his music, and I was so impressed, it was a EASY yes. When it comes to music I do ONLY what I FEEL. Thats the only way (for me) to get a great performance. @iamjakeisaac had a song in mind for is, that I liked, but didn’t hear myself on.
So, I told him my rule … I have to LOVE it. Smart of him! lol ~ he sent a link with all the songs he had for his project ( I’m VERY selective lol) … and I heard GOLD and I KNEW!, it was the one.
Today, 7pm (EST) GOLD Jake Issac ft. India Arie is released and it so delicate and soulful and lovey. Link in my bio
Thank you Jake.”
