WATCH THIS: Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley "Autumn Leaves" Official Music Video

Gongzilla In Sinatra Mode

As the days get shorter, the weather becomes cooler, the leaves on trees begin to turn orange and red, it is clear that fall is announcing it’s imminent arrival. Coinciding with the changing season Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley dropped an appropriately titled video for the Stony Hill cut “Autumn Leaves.” Directed by Mark Pellington, the video is full of powerful images of people young and old, interpretive dancers, a string orchestra, and Marley dressed in all white that work together to convey a feeling of both melancholy and hopefulness that fits well with the songs message of navigating the ups and down of love with Zilla singing “don’t give up on me.” With its prominent string arrangement, no bass and no one drop, the song is an example of a growing trend of music that challenges the very definition of what a reggae tune sounds like.

The Hotskull Finds An Empress To Cool Him Down

The latest visual offa Poppi’s Where We Come From album is all about the love between one man and one woman. “Love Yuh Bad” (produced by Dre Skull) was the first track leaked off Popcaan’s debut album on Mixpak Records, and the accompanying video finds Hotskull and his queen in the rain forests of St. Thomas where the natural vibes flow (inna back-to-nature Adam and Eve style). This video should really be picked up by the Jamaica Tourist Board because after you watch it you will want to book two tickets to paradise like Eddie Money. Watching Popcaan and his lady boiling bananas, burning spliffs, and playing in the river serves as a timely reminder that you don’t have to have a big fat roasted turkey in the oven to give thanks.

The Battle of the Sexes Rages On With A Music Video And All-New Lyrics

Vegas and Latty’s creative chemistry nah stop bubble. Ever since Vegas linked up with the feisty young singer and DJ from August Town Lane (formerly known as Digicel Rising Stars contestant Latoya Jackson, who was bigged up by Tessanne Chin for her performance) the veteran artist and his protege have been on a roll. Their first duet, “Who Rule,” has taken #TeamHustle to another level. MV Music’s hilarious battle of the sexes, voiced over a riddim reminiscent of Shabba’s vintage dancehall track “Twice my Age,” now has a music video, directed by DeeGo and Colin Young. The lyrics for the music video version are brand new—and while no less humorous they are somewhat less scandalous than the original raw version first heard on Boomshots. Moving from bedroom capers to kitchen and laundry (with a light touch of sexual innuendo) this second installment of the oldest argument in the world promises to become a modern classic.

Reggae Dancehall Xtraordinaite Inna Cowbwoy Stylee

From Josey Wales to the Lone Ranger to Super Cat’s classic “Scalp Dem,” western flicks have been a rich source of inspiration for reggae dancehall artists over the years. But chances are you’ve never seen a western video quite like this one before. Renegade + Delomar = RDX, two-man dancehall wrecking crew. They burst on the scene with smash hits like “Daggering” and “Bend Over” and since then they’ve carved out a niche as the bashment party gods with a gift for getting the ladies involved. They’ve just released some new visuals for their uptempo single “Ride It,” so what better concept than an Old West cowboy story? Words cannot do this one justice—best you  just check it out for yourself. And then pree their backstage interview with the ReggaeGirlABoutTown. Saddle up! Videos After The Jump… Read more »

The song is meant to inspire—and so will the video.” Video After The Jump… Read more »
