This is a song that I want people to feel both relief and release.”

Twiggi – Lost Love – Zyfex / Tuff Gong International

Twiggi - Lost Love - Zyfex / Tuff Gong International

Reggae songstress extraordinaire Twiggi has released her new single titled “Love Lost,” a song about a good woman, struggling to keep her relationship alive, but is overwhelmed by the neglect that tears her and her partner apart. The single was co-produced by Rupert Green (a.k.a. Masta Recka / ZYFEX CEO) and Twiggi for the ZYFEX label is distributed by Tuff Gong International available now on all digital services worldwide.

“Everyone is accustomed to hearing me on Reggae rhythms so, this song took a lot of people by surprise because it was done on a Pop inspired Dancehall beat. However, the feedback that I’ve received about it is very positive,” Twiggi says.

The veteran entertainer, who’s real name Marie Gittens, is known for songs such as “Want It” featuring Buju Banton, “It’s Too Late” and “Tears On My Pillow” is confident that her new single will be a success. She has worked with the best in Reggae and Dancehall, which includes Donovan Germain (Penthouse Records), Bobby Digital (Digital-B), and Exterminator’s Fattis Burrell to name a few.

“After over two decades of recording quality music and performing all over the world, I have built a solid fan base that’s always supportive of my career and my music. So, I am very confident that this song will be warmly received by my Twigums as I like to call my fans all over the world,” said Twiggi.

She also revealed that she plans to release a video for “Love Lost” before the end of the month.

“We’ve already shot the video. It is currently being edited and should be ready for release before the end of the month.”

The artwork for the project was designed by a Ukrainian located in Ukraine in the middle of war. The story behind the artwork shows a frustrated Rasta cupid between two hearts, not knowing what to do anymore, as he tries to make people fall in love but they keep on breaking apart.

Twiggi is currently in the studio working on several new projects including an EP that she plans to release later this year.

Masta Recka – Ghetto John Crow

Masta Recka - Ghetto John Crow

The renaissance man of Reggae Dancehall Masta Recka has released his new single titled “Ghetto John Crow,” a song that shines a different perspective on crimes plaguing the Ghetto. “Instead of preaching the same thing every day, I focused on the art of storytelling,” said Recka. “Tales of parents’ pain, jealousy, and corruption.” The single produced by Rupert Green (a.k.a. Masta Recka / ZYFEX CEO) for the ZYFEX label is distributed by Tuff Gong International and is available now on all digital services worldwide.

Masta Recka, a former member of the U.S. Army, grew up in Water House, one of the most feared Garrisons in Kingston. Memories of friends and family who lost their lives to senseless killing prompted Recka to write “Ghetto John Crow.” His clever lyrical scheme is often compared to that of dancehall master lyricist Vybz Kartel. Masta Recka is one of the few dancehall artists who is also an author (R.J. Green), his book “Tanny Anderson – Barefoot, Prickles & Thorns peaked at #6 on amazon in 2010.

With a diverse background in Theater, Science, and an MBA in International Business, Masta Recka also produced songs for several Jamaican artists, including Stylysh, True Blaxxx, Cuz Diego, KQrios, and is the co-producer of “Love Lost” by Twiggi.

The video for Ghetto John Crow is scheduled to be released in early June. Recka is currently in the studio working on several new projects, including soundtracks for a movie he plans to start filming this year.

One of Masta Recka’s wishes is for more fans to join and support artists who made great contributions to the genre. “Fans should support their favorite artists by purchasing or sharing their music,” said Recka. Get your copy of Ghetto John Crow and spread the word, ending crime is the key.

Busy Signal – Cruising

Busy Signal - Cruising - Nuh Rush Records / Tuff Gong International

“Busy works his Auto-Tune magic on the vintage hook before delving into the intricate lyrical patterns that have distinguished him as one of Jamaican music’s grand masters.” – VIBE

Jamaican dancehall superstar Busy Signal cruises into the spring season with a reimagined version of “Cruising,” the legendary love song that took Motown icon Smokey Robinson back to the top of the charts when he first released it in 1979. Busy Signal dropped the single today on all DSPs and premiered the official video with VIBE and Boomshots.

Always an originator, Busy adds his unique island flavor and a touch of class to the endeavor as he dons a crisp suit, designer shades, and a straw fedora on the single cover art. He includes the letter “g” in the updated title for a proper spelling of “Cruising” — originally “Cruisin'” on the Smokey version — but slyly dips into rudebwoy patois over a lush R&B instrumental track, partially built by Busy himself, alongside composer Danny Bassie (of the legendary Firehouse Crew) and producer Junior Brown, for a fresh original verse that paints the details of an intoxicating afternoon of leisure with his lady:

Gyal mek wi cruise
Gone pon ah sail
Mi ah chop ah snappa
You have up ah lobsta tail
Margarita inna glass
Pineapple pale
Highest grade to mi meds that mi a inhale Inna di bedroom you know mi nah go fail
Beat yuh skin wid out no bruises or no wale
Yuh mek it shake and it read pon ricta scale
Because you’re not the normal or the typical female girl

The official video, directed by 300K, premiered on R&B/hip hop hub VIBE and its reggae/dancehall partner platform Boomshots today. Filmed in the Saint Andrew Parish of Jamaica, the new visuals show Busy Signal epitomizing the “classic man” image as he takes his girl cruising through the winding hillside roads of Gordon Town in a vintage British Racing Green MG.

“Some of Busy Signal’s biggest hits have been on the lovers records like ‘One More Night’ and ‘Come Over (Missing You)’ so I had the concept to recreate ‘Cruisin’ but with a Jamaican twist,” explains Nuh Rush Records chief Junior Brown. “Danny Bassie of Firehouse Crew built a track, and when I presented it to Busy Signal, he immediately loved the idea.”

“This will be one for the books and I’m grateful for the opportunity to do such a classic song in my own way and style,” added Busy Signal, who quickly laid down the vocals at Jamaica’s famed Big Yaad Studios in Kingston after hearing the track. Busy masterfully delivers Smokey’s chorus with the unique vocal tone that is unmistakably his alone, before peppering the verse with original lyrics that showcase his creative wordplay. Initially scheduled for release in 2021, Busy’s version of “Cruising” got delayed with some publishing clearance hurdles that finally got resolved.

Smokey Robinson’s “Cruisin'” was released in 1979 on Motown Records’ Tamla label. The unexpected hit marked a resurgence in the singersongwriter’s career and eventually went on to reach #1 on the Cash Box Top 100 and peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Neo-soul pioneer D’Angelo released another critically acclaimed version on his 1995 debut album Brown Sugar. Additionally, the song has been covered in a 2000 duet by Gwyneth Paltrow and Huey Lewis that fared well in the U.S. and topped international pop charts in Australia and New Zealand.

Busy Signal, whose government name is Reanno Gordon, hails from Saint Ann Parish in Jamaica. He is known for his international reggae hits like “Come Over (Missing You),” “Jamaica Jamaica,” and “One More Night,” as well as dancehall staples like “Bedroom Bully” and crossover collaborations like his appearance on Major Lazer’s “Watch Out For This (Bumaye).” Current tracks making noise on the scene include the Afrobeats tune “Bad Gyal” and his collaboration “Bang Bung” alongside Bounty Killer. Busy Signal has collaborated with Junior Brown and Nuh Rush Records a number of times through the years on tracks like “Margarita,” “Bruk Dung Di Bed” “More Strength,” and “Never Get Tired” off the recently released album The Redemption Project. Their take on “Cruising” injects new culture into Smokey’s time-tested ballad that will introduce the beloved melody to the next generation of music fans.

The Redemption Project

The Redemption Project

Kingston-based production powerhouse Nuh Rush Records (distributed by Tuff Gong International) has released its latest offering, titled The Redemption Project, available now at all DSPs and streaming services. Hearkening back to the golden days of reggae, The Redemption Project is built around a Nyabinghi drum riddim — widely considered to be the heartbeat of the reggae genre and the Rastafarian faith — that inspired eleven conscious roots songs for this collection by a diverse list of Jamaican vocalists including Busy Signal, Queen Ifrica, Turbulence feat. Sunny Trad, Lutan Fyah, Tony Curtis, Kananga, Natural Black, Nature Ellis, Gott-Yo, Don G, and Guidance.

With titles like dancehall superstar Busy Signal’s “Never Get Tired,” Guyana-born singer Natural Black’s “Serious Times,” Kananga’s “Stronger,” and Queen Ifrica’s “Predator’s Paradise,” it’s clear that themes of strength, pride, and resistance are woven throughout the entire album.

An active community leader in her native Jamaica, with roots firmly planted in the Rastafarian faith, Queen Ifrica explained the meaning behind her contribution to The Redemption Project:

“‘Predators Paradise’ is a staunch look at how reality plays out in our everyday life. The lyrics suggest that there are so many people around the world who carry very dark experiences, while the people who are the ones who have affected them in that way are allowed to move about in society someway somehow so it’s about acknowledging that fact in the realness of sense.”

An official video for “Predator’s Paradise” in the final edit stages, while more visuals from The Redemption Project are currently being filmed.

Since its release, selections from the album have been featured in heavy rotation on Bob Marley’s Tuff Gong Radio (channel 19) on SiriusXM, who are currently offering a free trial subscription.

Nuh Rush chief Junior Brown added “‘ The Redemption Project’ took two years in production and we are excited to finally share it with the masses.”

Busy Signal - Bruk Dung Di Bed - Tri-Circle Riddim

Jamaican dancehall superstar Busy Signal continues his hot streak this summer with the release of “Bruk Dung Di Bed,” the lead single off the brand new Tri-Circle Riddim EP (via Nuh Rush Records / Tuff Gong International).

The official video, directed by Dameon Gayle and released on Busy Signal’s YouTube channel, finds Busy surrounded by a bevy of beautiful females at a Miami high-rise. They ride a packed elevator up to a private penthouse suite, where our dancehall hero confidently choreographs his new friends through familiar territory on the balcony, in the shower, and of course, in the bedroom:

Wine it up fi mi
Get tough fi mi
Don’t left me out
Cah mi need your company Mek di jaw dem bounce
Left to the right
Jiggle mek your bumper jump fi mi

“Bruk Dung Di Bed,” produced by Nuh Rush Records chief Junior Brown, brings a fresh sound, but follows in the long tradition of Busy Signal songs where the “Bedroom Bully” deejay expresses his appreciation for, and demonstrates his prowess with, the opposite sex. “This track is just highlighting the girls who are vibrant, energetic, and entertaining,” Busy told The FADER.

Also featured on the Tri-Circle Riddim is Spanish Town native Jovi DiPree, who composed the music and lent his vocals and songwriting talents to the title track. As a songwriter, composer, and engineer, the multi-skilled artist has already made a name for himself in musical circles collaborating with top tier Jamaican artists like Spice, Dexta Daps, and Vybz Kartel, among others.

Busy Signal, who is currently enjoying a steady stream of hits circulating in the dancehall, has collaborated with Junior Brown and Nuh Rush Records a number of times on tracks like “Girl You A Champion,” “More Strength” and most recently on the laidback summer vibes of “Margarita.”

“Working with Nuh Rush Records has always been a pleasure. Great team to work with and dedicated to the furtherance of the music. We have a lot more projects together that will be released in due time,” said Busy of the the fruitful relationship.
