Billboard names top 5 Carib Fests

in Reggae News by

Among them is JA’s vintage Reggae Sunsplash officiated Reggae Sumfest the Greatest Reggae Show on Earth now in its 25th year. This year’s staging will feature Jamaican dancehall star Sean Paul, American-Jamaican R&B/hip-hop artist Sean Kingston and Canadian R&B singer Torey Lanez.  Jamaica’s own Rebel Salute and Jazz and Blues Fest also made Billboard’s list.

My personal favorite Rebel Salute was founded in 1994 by Tony Rebel as a celebration of his birthday, the two-night event is inclusive of all Jamaican music but emphasizes roots, culture and lover’s rock vibes with a strict no meat no alcohol policy. When the event outgrew its St. Elizabeth venue St. Ann became it’s permanent home.

Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival has seen the likes of international icons like Diana Ross, Alicia Keys, and Mariah Carey as well as top-tier reggae talents like Shaggy and Ziggy Marley.  Celine Dion who has an unusually expansive Jamaican following drew a reported 27,000 patrons in 2012.

Just a baby on the list birthed just last year, Pure Grenada Music Festival seemed poised to make it’s distinct mark on the Carib’s festival destination watch-list. Last year’s floating stage sounds pretty extravagant for an island with just 100,000 population. Joss Stone, Etana, Jessie Royal and Mr. Killa made memorable appearances that got things buzzing. This year’s show which took place just 3 weeks ago featured Tarrus Riley, Third World and The Grenadian steel pan Orchestra, the Pan Wizards .

“We intend to promote Grenadian artists on an international stage and establish Grenada as a music tourism destination,” says Arlene Friday, Festival Coordinator, Head of Marketing and PR. source:billboard.com

Next Stop

Over the past 21 years the St. Kitts Music Festival has delivered dynamic festival experiences. Every year it’s a balancing act — what combination of acts can we put together that will make international audiences want to come to St. Kitts and also satisfy a local audience? The Chairman of the St. Kitts Festival Artist Selection Committee told Billboard. 

In 2016 Dexta Daps, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Kes  and 50 Cent were featured on the line up. The festivities continue this year with Goo Goo Dolls and Shabba Ranks alongside  a soca band clash between St. Kitts’ own Grand Masters and Small Axe Band.

Closer than my peeps you are to me, baby
Shorty, you’re my angel, you’re my darling angel
Girl, you’re my friend when I’m in need, ladyYou’re a queen and so you should be treated
Though you never get the lovin’ that you needed
Could have left, but I called and you heeded
Begged and I pleaded, mission completed
Mama said that I and I dissed the program
Not the type to mess around with her emotion
But the feeling that I have for you is so strong
Been together so long and this could never be wrong

And you appear to me so tender, say girl I surrender
(Thanks for giving me your love)

Girl, in spite of my behavior, well, you are my savior

And you appear to me so tender, well, girl I surrender

Now life is one big party when you’re still young
And who’s gonna have your back when it’s all done
It’s all good when you’re little, you have pure fun

Shaggy-It Wasn’t Me

in Vids & Lyrics by
It Wasn’t Me
(feat. Ricardo Ducent)

(Yo’, man) Yo’
(Open up, man) What do you want, man?
(My girl just caught me) You let her catch you?
(I don’t know how I let this happen) With who?
(The girl next door, you know) Man
(I don’t know what to do) Say it wasn’t you
(Alright)Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
[Album version:] Picture this, we were both butt-naked, banging on the bathroom floor
[Clean version:] Picture this, we were both caught making love on the bathroom floor

How could I forget that I had
Given her an extra key
All this time she was standing there
She never took her eyes off me

How you can give your woman access to your villa?
Trespass and a-witness while you cling to your pillow
You better watch your back before she turn into a killer
Let’s review the situation that you caught up in a

To be a true player you have to know how to play
If she say a night, convince her say a day
Never admit to a word when she say
And if she claim, ah, you tell her, “Baby, no way.”

But she caught me on the counter (It wasn’t me)
[Album version:] Saw me bangin’ on the sofa (It wasn’t me)
[Clean version:] Saw me kissin’ on the sofa (It wasn’t me)
I even had her in the shower (It wasn’t me)
She even caught me on camera (It wasn’t me)

She saw the marks on my shoulder (It wasn’t me)
Heard the words that I told her (It wasn’t me)
Heard the scream get louder (It wasn’t me)
She stayed until it was over

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
[Album version:] Picture this, we were both butt-naked, banging on the bathroom floor
[Clean version:] Picture this, we were both caught making love on the bathroom floor

I had tried to keep her
From what she was about to see
Why should she believe me
When I told her it wasn’t me

Make sure she knows it’s not you and lead her on no right to vex
Whenever you should see her make the gigolo flex
Somebody else as it be by you, it not that complex
Seeing is believing so you better change your specs
You know she are gon’ bring ’bout things up from the past
All the little evidence you better know to mask

Quick upon your answer: go over there
But if she pack a gun you know you better run fast

But she caught me on the counter (It wasn’t me)
[Album version:] Saw me bangin’ on the sofa (It wasn’t me)
[Clean version:] Saw me kissin’ on the sofa (It wasn’t me)
I even had her in the shower (It wasn’t me)
She even caught me on camera (It wasn’t me)

She saw the marks on my shoulder (It wasn’t me)
Heard the words that I told her (It wasn’t me)
Heard the scream get louder (It wasn’t me)
She stayed until it was over

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
[Album version:] Picture this, we were both butt-naked, banging on the bathroom floor
[Clean version:] Picture this, we were both caught making love on the bathroom floor

How could I forget that I had
Given her an extra key
All this time she was standing there
She never took her eyes off me

Gonna tell her that I’m sorry
For the pain that I’ve caused
I’ve been listening to your reason
It makes no sense at all
We should tell her that I’m sorry
For the pain that I’ve caused
You may think that you’re a player
But you’re completely lost
That’s why I sing

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed
Creeping with the girl next door
[Album version:] Picture this, we were both butt-naked, banging on the bathroom floor
[Clean version:] Picture this, we were both caught making love on the bathroom floor

How could I forget that I had
Given her an extra key
All this time she was standing there
She never took her eyes off me
