Reggae singer Tarrus Riley recently completed what could be said is his best music video to date. Riley teamed up with US based video director Rik Cordero to work on the video for Superman, a track on his most recent album Contagious.
Superman has been generating strong buzz across the Caribbean and this prompted Riley’s decision to shoot a video.
In a release to the media, Riley outlined his reasons for deciding to work the US based director. ‘Rik is friends with one of my friends Mabricio Wilson (owner of the Futbulr clothing line) and he suggested that I try a different look for my next video’, said Riley.
He added ‘Superman has been doing well in the Caribbean islands for over a year now, so based on the feedback from the fans, I decided to get the video done. Persons who are not familiar with the song will get to know it’.
Superman is a remake of an original recording by blue eyed soul singer Robin Thicke. Riley’s version was produced by Dean ‘Cannon’ Fraser.
The video for Superman was released to Tempo, as well as television stations in Jamaica last week. The video was also serviced to internet websites across the Caribbean.
Riley’s newest single is the powerful Nyabinghi Pickney in which he pays homage to his African ancestry as well as the national heroes of Jamaica. The track was produced by Roshaun ‘Bay C’ Clarke of TOK for Bombrush Records.
Comedic duo Ity and Fancy Cat are at it again, this time they have recorded a song on a popular skit that came on their show.
In the skit the maid used the slang Tan Deh Deh. It has now become a popular slang on the streets – so much so that the duo could not resist putting it into a song. Check it out.
Eminem and Lil Wayne have just debuted their brand new music video for the song “No Love.”
It’s their second collaboration together—the first was “Drop The World” off of Weezy’s Rebirth. The duo's new single is off Em's Recovery album which is currently dominating the sales charts.
Eminem recently talked of Weezy in an interview saying, "I've always respected what Wayne does. Wayne to me is definitely one of the greatest in the game right now."
He returned the compliment, saying, "Em is him, and he's back in a major way," he told Funkmaster Flex, on a call from prison. "He's a great dude. He's been keeping up with me since I've been in here, and I appreciate his support."
Maybe the prison guards at Riker’s Island will be nice enough to show Lil Wayne his latest piece of art.

Certified Divas, the music video for the single by Tami Chynn and Tifa had its premiere on Wednesday at the Quad Nightclub in New Kingston.
Celebrities, media and well-wishers came out to show support for dancehall’s darlings who have upped the ante with their hot new single.
The video directed by Dexter ‘3D’ Pottinger made what appeared to be an impressive debut at the by-invitation-only launch. Several wardrobe changes, lots of glam — think make-up for effect rather than just for the sake of using make up — high energy and details went into the making of this video.
Some scenes are a bit too fast, almost bordering on blurry. Maybe if they were slowed down just a bit, the effect would be greater.
It seems Tarrus did this song about his father Jimmy Riley.
Charges laid on cops who claim they were in danger
The August 23 killing of Spragga Benz’ teen son Carlton Grant Jnr. became grounds for laying murder charges recently, after the Director of Public Prosecutions Paula Llewellyn made that specific ruling.
Law enforcement officers who allegedly took part in the shooting death, were all given bail after different charges were laid on them in the Half Way Tree Criminal Court over a week ago.
Constables Andre Hare and Audley Lawrence, who were both charged with murdering the teenager had bail set at $300,000. Sergeant Michael Blackwood, charged only with assault, had bail set at $10,000.
The three policemen had stories that conflict with eyewitness accounts of the fatal incident. While the officers insist that they responded to an armed robbery call and felt their lives were threatened after the teens pulled out a gun and began firing - family and witnesses say differently.
Protesters who feel the killing was cold blooded murder, have been reportedly assaulted and jailed.
The three policemen return to court on December 11.
How bout a round of applause
You look so dumb right now
Standing outside my house
Trying to apologize
You're so ugly when you cry
Please-(spoken)just cut it out
Don't tell me you're sorry cuz you're not
Baby when I know you're only sorry you got caught
But you put on quite a show
You really had me going
Now it's time to go
Curtain's finally closing
That was quite a show
But it's over now
Go on and take a bow
Alison Hinds Releases New Videos
Almost two years since the release of her scintillating video for the track "Roll it gal", the Soca Diva has recently released two videos for the tracks, "The more you get" and "Thundah" from her Soca Queen album.
The videos are a typical Hinds combination of class and sex.
Trini - Canadian, David Cropper of "Roll it gal" fame directed these videos as well. Videos were set in Trinidad.
When asked at last week's Carifest C.A.R.E.S. (Compassionate Artists Recognizing Entertainment Solutions) press conference what Carifest meant to him, Eek-A-Mouse replied. "It doesn't mean (expletive) to me." He then changed the subject entirely and went off on a tirade, dissing all the white people who control reggae, like Ace Of Base, Matisyahu, (whose name he repeatedly mispronounced and called Matissaweh), Sean Paul and Shaggy; bitterly blaming them for his inability to get signed by a major label. He even included the late, great, reggae founder Bob Marley in his racist rant, citing that he had a white father.
Don't take our word for it...check out the video for yourselves

On the set of the luxurious yatch, Caribbean Queen, Taurus Riley finished the last shot of his new video She's Royal, on May 20th. Draped in various colours of blue, green, yellow, purple, and orange African fabrics, Nubian Royal Empresses representing the many hues of Black filled the backdrop. They were gleefully sharing pleasures of being serenaded by such a powerful song.
Directed by Rupert Campbell of CVM Television, it shows Taurus Riley meeting a beautiful natural woman, played by Ifrica Thompson and falling in love with her, but is later rejected. After thinking about her, he is finally reunited where they mutually respond to each other through attraction. It is done in the communal context of the family and focuses on uplifting the more positive and African elements of Black beauty. Other scenes include Taurus on the beach, the rejection scene, the family scene, and a dancer's scene.
