As Valentine’s Day draws near, reggae recording artist Rad Dixon is sharing the second single from his recently released album, Hard Times. The track is titled Right Portion, a love song done with Portmore singer Talee. On the record both performers go back and forth expressing their undying love and desire for the each other, while proclaiming their partner has the Right Portion.
Tasjay Production, the imprint on which the album and all its subsequent singles are being published, just uploaded the official lyric video to YouTube. However, prior to the visuals being shared, Right Portion was already getting consistent rotation on reggae platforms. With that in mind – and as we are in the season of love – one can only assume that its feature on reggae medias will now increase exponentially.
Powered Tasjay Productions, Hard Times is a flawless, solid, roots-reggae album, that touches on varying topics: social issues, relationships, spirituality and creativity. It went live on all streaming platforms on new year’s day, 2023.

Shot in the tropical island of Antigua, ‘Telephone Love’ is the first new single since his Grammy nominated and critically acclaimed album “The Cure.”
Directed by Justin “Jus Bus” Nation and Anderson “ATA” Andrew, the stunning visual includes drone shots of the lush Antiguan landscape while Jah Cure rides the open roads with his lady interest and an antique telephone in hand. Without taking himself too seriously, he playfully dances in front of a classic British red telephone booth while singing along to the smooth melodic rhythm that the song remits.
Nyah Bless Music has just unveiled the official video for their single, “Non Genuine” performed by reggae veteran Thriller U. The song was first shared in late February and has been getting solid rotation from reggae radio programs as well as street and club DJs worldwide.
Visuals for the catchy lovers-rock tune shows a female – played by actress Shernette Williams – who deceives her man, Thriller U (played by popular Jamaican actor DJ Stanhype), by getting him to buy her a house and other expensive items, all while cheating on him. The video was shot in and around the Three Oakes area in Kingston, Jamaica. It was directed and edited by Maria Jackson Entertainment.
