Kevin Lyttle, the artist that is known for mega hits like “Turn Me On” and “Drive Me Crazy” is back on the scene with another potential chart topper, “Close to You.” The song was officially released on January 4th of this year via Tarakon Records, and the video was shared only a few days ago (on April 11th) via Kevin’s YouTube channel.
New York based dancehall artist E.G. has done a remix of his single “Shake It.” The new version was released a few days ago via his YouTube channel, and it clearly shows his ability to comfortably do different musical styles.
Over the last few weeks, E.G., who is first and foremost a dancehall artist, has done a trending soca single titled Head Gone and now he is doing what many considers to be a Caribbean-pop crossover record.
The official video for E.G.‘s trending soca single, “Head Gone” is now available for viewing via YouTube. The visuals, which were shot by Roti Killa in Queens, New York, tells the story of a rum loving raver (E.G.) who gets drunk at a night club and is consequently robbed of all his jewelry by a woman he was trying to pursue.
As the song has been getting a lot of rotation, particularly from selectors in the NYC area, fans, friends and colleagues came out on the day of the shoot to show their support. The files were then sent to Jamaica for editing by Maria Jackson.
Recording artist E.G. and his team got together a few weeks ago to shoot the official video for his trending soca single “Head Gone.” Released on the Start Up Riddim by BKA Records at the end of 2018, E.G.‘s “Head Gone“ is undoubtedly one of the stand out song on the project.
The video, which was directed by Roti, was shot at a popular bar in Queens, New York and is now being edited by Maria Jackson. It will be released on Monday, March 4th.
In an effort to promote the video release, E.G. will be doing several club appearances, where he will be performing the song and premiering the video ahead of March 4th. Upcoming stops include Sapphire (in Valley Stream, New York) on March 1st and Guiding Light Lounge (in Jamaica, New York) on March 2nd.
