El Cantante de reggae Karims y el reggaetonero Randy “Nota Loka” se colaboran en canción soul- reggae. El tema titulado Let Me Kiss You (Déjeme besarte) usa dos lenguas inglés e español. El sencillo es bien suave y romántico como el original música “one drop” de reggae.
Las letras de la balada dicen:
Let me kiss you while I’m looking to your eyes
baby you’re so divine quiero que seas mía por siempre amor
Quiero besarte hasta mas no respirar contigo quiero estar
I want you to be mine forevermore
Let Me Kiss You @KarimsMusic @RandyNotaLoca
No es la primera vez que Randy trabaja con artista de reggae en español. La pareja musical Jowell y Randy también tiene tema llamado “Solo Por Ti” con Willy Rodriguéz de la banda popular Cultura Profética.
La música reggaetón debe tener más presentaciones como aquellas que tienen influencia reggae, pop, y r&b.

Mavado And Nicki Minaj Give It All To Me Video
Young Money’s Caribbean Queen Nicki Minaj teams up with We The Best Jamaican artist Mavado for the official video Give It All To Me. The scene is a beachside pool party with plenty of good vibes, bottles of champagne, and dancing girls. The party goers include Jamaican Pop Princess Barbee, Producer Justus Arison of JA productions, and Dancehall Queen Keiva along with many others. The bashment is in celebration of West Indian culture coming together, Nicki’s Trinidadian roots meet Mavado’s Jamaican rude bwoy style for a song to represent all of the Caribbean. The music video was filmed at La Marina in New York City and was shot by director Grizz Lee.
Nicki And Mavado answered the public’s demand for an anthem like Mya and Beenie’s Girl Dem Suga. A good island collaboration was well needed and the two debuted the smash while performing for Hot 97s On Da Reggae Tip in NY. The two represented for their respective islands while still appealing to the American Hip-Hop crowd.

Shaggy collaborates with R&B songwriter and singer Ne-yo on the melodic one-drop “You Girl.” The love song unites two iconic voices in their own respective genres, Shaggy’s ragga style flows on the track to inspire Ne-yo’s sweet talk over the beat.

You Girl produced by the legendary duo Sly & Robbie is the perfect ballad for the ladies and will be featured on Shaggy’s forthcoming album Out of Many, One Music.

Rihanna shows of her wings in this ethereal ensemble she wore for the annual Crop Over Festival In Barbados. The celebration is a holiday in favor of the harvest season and is considered a Bajan tradition. In the Caribbean we celebrate this time of year with loud music, bright colors, and crazy culture. This photograph foreshadows the imminent presence of an icy winter . Prepare yourself with snow white boots, fluffy jackets, and all ivory jump suits. Until then, soak up the summer sun with half-naked crop tops and sheer cut leotards.
Rihanna has a flawless style, that is fresh for any season!

Last night at Liberty Hall in downtown Kingston there was a panel discussion entitled “Escaping Roots of Extending Consciousness”. The panelists were Terry Lynn, a Jamaican artist who has found inspiration in European electronic music, as well as Alborosie and Gentleman, European artists who have found inspiration in Jamaican music. Carolyn Cooper moderated the discussion, which had been organized by the folks behind the upcoming documentary Journey to Jah (it’s a film about the aforementioned Europeans and their connection to Jamaica).
The conversation was pretty interesting, with all three artists describing how they got their respective starts in music and how they feel that they’ve found their right outlet/niche. Terry Lynn spoke eloquently about the struggle for women in reggae and dancehall–she acknowledged a desire to talk about sex and relationships, but questioned why that has to be the main focus of a woman’s lyrics. After all, she…

Mima sweet sounds with afrobeat, reggae, and soul undertones.
In “Mima: Caribbean Sweet Water,” Catalina Johnson reviews a new album—El Pozo—by Yarimir Cabán AKA Mima, a singer/musician from Puerto Rico. I listened to a few of the songs through the links provided—truly original, smart, and delightfully quirky. According to the review, Mima will be in concert on Wednesday, May 15 at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, Illinois. Here is Johnson’s full review with a link to the original:
“The metaphor of the well is so ancient … it’s a place of encounter, transgression, collaboration, awaiting,” says Yarimir Cabán, known as Mima. An experimental neo-Caribbean musician from Puerto Rico, Cabán has emerged as one of the island’s most original and striking artists, and via phone from San Juan, she is describing the title of her sophomore album and the motif of its main song.
