Bitty McLean Links With Sly & Robbie On “Forward” (@BittyMcLean1)

British reggae artist Bitty McLean, who rose to prominence in the 90s, has released a new album called Forward. The collaborative LP, done with the legendary Sly & Robbie, was published on April 14, 2023 via the Tabou1 imprint.

Since early in his career, McLean has been working with the prolific Jamaican rhythm section and production duo. The two brands connected on a studio album entitled Movin’ On in 2007, and again on The Taxi Sessions in 2013. In addition to their work in the studio, McLean, Sly & Robbie also toured together. They performed in Japan, Europe and Morocco in 2008 and 2009.

Lutan Fyah Seems Fed Up With The “Bla Bla Bla”

One of reggae’s best songwriters, Lutan Fyah, has once again delivered a stunning record! His latest is a bouncy reggae tune called Bla Bla Bla, done in collaboration with Derrick Sound from Geneva, Switzerland.

It is difficult to effectively describe this song and the vibe it gives off without falling short. So I will instead insist that all reggae lovers check it out, especially if you have a preference for music with an intelligent message.

Duane Stephenson’s New Tune “Make You My Queen” Drops On May 26 (@bigfeetrecords)

In early March, roots reggae singer Duane Stephenson recorded an absolutely lovely song for Big Feet Records. Although it was initially called Queen, once it was mixed and mastered, Josh Harris – the CEO of Big Feet Records, in consultation with Duane – decided to officially title it Make You My Queen.

This is a ska tune on which Stephenson pours his heart out to his love interest, detailing both his intentions and desires. His refined soulful vocals are embraced by some beautiful horns that are surprisingly equally captivating.

The release date for Make You My Queen is Friday, May 26th, 2023. And as is the case with previous releases from Big Feet Records, it will be distributed by VPAL Music.

Little Hero Drops New Video “Badman Round Here” (@Pandemicrecord1)

Last November, while Jamaica was struggling with an inexplicable high murder rate, recording artist Little Hero – in partnership with Pandemic Records – released Badman Round Here, a song penned to accentuate the issue. Regretfully, although violent crimes have since decreased in some parishes, the reality is that it is an ongoing problem.

To that end, Hero and the team at Pandemic Records have just shared the official video for Badman Round Here. Directed by RGM Production, the stunning visuals brings Little Hero‘s words to life with exactitude. 

The publishing of the visuals further cements the relationship between Pandemic and the God Alone singer. Collectively they’ve already gotten a #1 song: World Right Now, released in October, 2021. Furthermore, both brands have previously announced that they are working on an album that should be delivered before the end of this year.
