Tom Laing is extremely happy with the development of his singing career.

After a five-year break, he’s back in full effect with a hot new single titled Finally Free. The song that was recorded at his Top Tier recording studio is currently blowing up FM radio.

“I took a much-needed break to build my studio and work on other important aspects of my career. It was a bit hard at first to take the break, but it was worth it. I now have a very good recording studio to work in and I also have a good production team which is headed by Donny Marshall,” said the artiste.

The affable singer recently topped the New York Foundation Radio Network Top 30 Chart. The song is also doing well on the South Florida version of the chart where it peaked at number four a few weeks ago.

Finally Free is currently sitting in the number-eight position of the Jamaica Music Countdown Top 25 Reggae Singles Chart.

Finally Free is doing extremely well, it’s getting a lot of airplay all over the world. It’s also doing well on the charts. People have a genuine love for this song and the radio DJs love it too,” said Laing.

Finally Free is the first song that Tom Laing has released since he returned to the business. The song was produced by top-flight musician/producer Donny Marshall, who previously worked with legendary reggae producers King Jammys and Jack Scorpio.

The video for Finally Free is also doing well, it is enjoying strong rotation on HYPE TV, RE TV, E Plus and CVM Plus.

Tom Laing is currently working on a number of projects, including the re-recording of some of his previous releases such as Heavy Load, Belly Of The Beast, If You Feel The Vibes and Come Back Home.

“Those songs were good lyrically, but the production wasn’t as strong as it should be, so we are doing them over.”

He is also getting ready to release a number of new singles, including Top Tier and One More Thing.

“I’m gonna drop a couple new tracks soon. you know the fans are requesting more music so I have to please them by delivering some more good tunes.”

Tom Laing says the best is yet to come in his career.

“I honestly feel like what I have done so far in music is just the tip of the iceberg. I have developed a lot in terms of my singing, my song-writing skills, and my whole knowledge of the business. I feel re-energised and I’m ready to take my career to the next level. Trust me, I am going do my best to always deliver good songs for the people.”

According to Mystic, she was surprised to see that Americans were already aware of who she was due to her huge welcoming reception.

“As the song started playing, girls rushed to the stage. Walshy Fire’s introduction got the crowd hype, mentioning that they have never done what we did before and phrases like ‘Bubble Butt’ and ‘artiste from Jamaica’ were enough to get the audience hyped up. it was amazing,” she added.

Bubble Butt currently has over twelve million views on YouTube.com. Mystic is currently in the US, working on more dancehall collaborations and will be looking to head off to Europe in coming weeks.

Major Lazer’s Watch Out For This (Bumaye) featuring Busy Signal is also doing well on the international scene and has received over 23 million views online.

Bugle’s “Shameless” creates huge BUZZ

Reggae/dancehall artiste Bugle aka Mr Compatible doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. His new single, ‘Shameless’, the follow up to his massive ‘Nuh Compatible’, is already creating a huge buzz.

Shameless once again teams Bugle with production house UIM Records.

Shameless is just another truth. I always describe my music as the truth because I talk about things I see happen in the society. It’s just another song that was inspired by day-to-day life,” Bugle explained in a release to the media.

Finding a proper follow-up single to a massive number one single such as Nuh Compatible wasn’t a difficult task for the renowned songwriter.

“My ability to write good songs has never changed. I have been writing good songs before I even got the break in 2007. The truth is, I am just mastering my craft and it’s not a task for me,” Bugle explained.

Even though it was released to radio less than two weeks ago, the feedback to Shameless has been overwhelming.

“The feedback has been great. People really love the song because they can relate to what I’m saying and they are gravitating towards it rapidly,” Bugle noted.

Another song that Bugle has high hopes for is Infidelity, which features Lady Saw.

Infidelity was also produced by UIM Records. It is one of my favourite projects. It’s about a relationship gone bad and no one is taking the blame. I know everyone can relate to that. Big up Mumma Saw,” said Bugle.

Best known for hits such as Journeys, What I’m Gonna Do, Pearly Gates and Anything Goes, Bugle ruled the airwaves this past summer as Nuh Compatible sat comfortably at the top of several local and overseas charts.

Kartel releases album – 60-track CD planned for this month

Although he remains incarcerated, dancehall icon Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer will release a new studio album later this month.

The album, titled Kartel Forever: Trilogy, will be available in CD and digital format as of September 24. The album boasts 60 tracks on a three-disc album and will feature previously unreleased singles and numerous hits from recent years.

Hailed as the World Boss, Kartel is known for his stimulating lyrics and provocative ploys off stage. The deejay is said to be determined to stay atop his dancehall throne and keep his fans satisfied until his inevitable return to the studio to make music for the masses.

“I want to thank all my supporters for your love and unfailing support throughout these trying times. Even though I am incarcerated, I am still up to the time. This album shows that I get stronger with each passing second. Tad’s plus Adidjaheim Records is a sick formula and the result is Kartel Forever: Trilogy. Worl’ Boss fullstop,” a release to THE STAR read.

extraordinary

With the slew of songs Kartel currently has on the streets, Kartel Forever: Trilogy, provides a vivid kaleidoscope of his continued evolution as an extraordinary artiste. Despite the geographic limitations of the artiste, his music speaks volumes, as is evident from his continued surge in popularity, especially over the past two years.

The first official single from the album is School, a call to action for youths. The single was produced by Tanesha ‘Shorty’ Johnson under her new label, Short Boss. The other singles propelling the album are Business and Compass.

recent years

Apart from these three singles, the three-disc collection also includes some of Kartel’s biggest hits in recent years, including Cake Soap, Summer Time, Dumpa Truck/That Sweet Yuh, and Benz.

Jamaican imprint Tad’s Record enjoys a strong partnership with the entertainer and joins him on the journey of keeping his music alive.

“Producing and affiliating ourselves with projects that showcase exquisite craftsmanship is something that, as a company, we at Tad’s Record take great pride in doing. Therefore, working with the World Boss Mr Palmer himself again, after the exceptional successes of our first project together Pon Di Gaza 2.0, was a no-brainer. “Sublime” is the one word that sums up the album Kartel Forever: Trilogy,” states Tad Dawkins, president of Tad’s Record.

The explicit version of Kartel Forever: Trilogy will be available in CD format in stores, while both clean and explicit versions will be available digitally.

Chillando drops new single

Fast-rising dancehall artiste Chilando is all smiles as he continues to climb towards the top of the musical ladder.

Chilando is currently enjoying much attention with his controversial single titled Gwaan Gyal. The supporting music video for Gwaan Gyal is also doing well as it is in the number-three position on CVM TV’s HIT LIST On The Rise chart.

Chilando is rapidly emerging as one of the most consistent new artistes. Earlier this year, he topped the On The Rise chart for several weeks with his video titled Nuh Tekk Box Up. Since then, he has continued to pepper the airwaves with a number of singles and videos.

“I’ve been working very hard to build my career and it’s been very good so far. A lot of positive things have happened, I’m taking everything in stride, giving thanks while making the most of every new achievement and opportunity that comes my way,” said Chilando.

hard-hitting track

He recently dropped a brand-new single titled Nah Beg No Ratings. The hard-hitting dancehall track was produced by hitmaking producer Zoom of Good Good Production, on his Happy Time rhythm.

Nah Beg Nuh Ratings has earned Chilando quite a number of new fans.

Nah Beg Nuh Ratings is doing well; it’s getting a lot of love from selectors and radio DJs all over the world. Everywhere I go, people are coming up to me and telling me they love my new song. The song is also creating a nice buzz on the Internet, since Zoom tweeted it on Twitter, I have been getting a lot of messages from new fans on Twitter and a lot of follow requests,” said the artiste.

Chilando recently treated patrons who attended the Montego Bay Jerk Festival to a spicy performance. Clad in full black, he commanded the attention of the massive audience as he reeled off songs such as Nuh Tekk Box Up, In A the City, Gwaan Gyal, and Gyal Dem Mi Want.

“The reaction from the crowd at the Jerk Fest was awesome, even when I left the stage, the fans wanted more,” he said.

Gaza Slim lashes out on ONLINE Impersonators

Dancehall artiste Gaza Slim has distanced herself from at least two facebook pages and an Instagram profile which have been created on her behalf. According to Gaza Slim, the pages are sending messages to her fans which do not represent her views and she wants to put an end to it.

According to the Independent Ladies singer, unscrupulous persons have been using the profiles to propagate rumours.

“Vanessa Bling, aka Gaza Slim, does not use Facebook, BBM or Instagram. So whosoever is pretending to be me needs to stop. People who know Slim know that I don’t use any of those networks. I was on blackberry messenger and I have been off since five months ago. Rumours have been spreading that I had a fight at a courthouse and that is not true,” she said.

propaganda

According to the artiste, she would never tarnish her reputation to take part in a public squabble and she wants persons to desist from spreading that propaganda.

“Big-up to my true fans and friends who have been supporting me from the start until now, as well as my nice clean boss, freedom is a must. It’s not what man say, it’s about what God say,” a seemingly upset Gaza Slim said.

She also took the opportunity to rubbish claims by the media that her close associates confirmed that she was in an argument with Vybz Kartel’s common-law wife, affectionately called Shorty.

“I’m so vex about that. Nobody fi mi neva talk a court or give nuh report, it was the fans,” Gaza Slim said.

The artiste is currently riding high with the success of her latest single called Whine, produced by UIM Records. The song currently has over 200,000 views on YouTube.com.

Gaza Slim was also featured in a song called Children Are Our Future, which denounces crimes against children.
