Check out Wayne Wonder breezing through his vast catalog of certified Boomshots—including the song that gave this annual showcase its name. And how long since we saw Red Rat blazing up his hits?

Things Were Such Simpler Back Then 

We all have that one person who occupies our mind. The one we, in odd hours of the day, gaze and wonder about what could have been or in some cases should have been, “the one that got away” as they say. There’s also another saying that goes “if you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, it’s yours forever.” This is what Wayne illustrates in his latest visual for “Reset It” We often find someone who is perfect for us but the timing may not have been appropriate, but the love is still their to revisit hopefully a few years down the line.

Dancehall Takes Over at BET's 106 & Park

Beenie Man, Wayne Wonder, and Mr. Vegas Star on Pre-Labor Day Special

With Labor Day weekend right around the corner, New York is buzzing with anticipation for a weekend of Caribbean culture. Even hip-hop and R&B stations are pumping up their reggae, dancehall, and soca playlists. Not to be outdone, BET’s top-rated music show 106 & Park will be devoting today’s show to dancehall stars Beenie Man, Wayne Wonder and Mr. Vegas. Even the music videos on the show representing Caribbean culture, and the audience and hosts are repping their favorite islands. Boomshots got the early heads-up so we made our way to BET’s studios for the taping and snagged some backstage interviews. We chopped it up with Beenie Man, who debuted a new video on the show (“Thug Love” featuring Ce’Cile) and Mr. Vegas, who told us about his big Beyonce remix “Standing on the Sun” and his forthcoming dancehall album, Bruk It Down 2.0.

HEAR THIS: Wayne Wonder “Flashback”

How’d Singso Know We’ve Been “Right Here Waiting” For One Of His Classics To Come Back?
50803279PH0020_VP_Records
There’s not many singers who can make a computerized riddim tug at your heartstrings like Wayne Wonder. His catalog is filled with dreamy love songs set to cutting-edge eletronic grooves. Back in the day he used to flip a lot of cover versions, until he hit 1995 with the turning point album Original Bombshell. Since then it’s been “No Turning Back” for the Billboard-certified outernational hitmaker. So we were pleasantly suprised when we received our latest Johnny Wonder 21st Hapilos E-Blast and saw that Wayne had linked with Mad Spyder productions to release a thing called “Flashback.” It’s a crispy 2013 update of his best-loved dancehall classics—a cover of Richard Marx’s pleasantly cheesy “Right Here Waiting”—inna 2013 style. And surprise surprise—it sounds sweeter than ever.   Audio After The Jump… Read more »

Remember when Shabba Ranks dropped that tune “Respect“? “Step by step you haffi climb the ladder / The elders you haffi show respect fah.” It’s plan to see that Konshens got the message. He may be on top of the game now, but he’s not one of those “likkle entertainers” who lose sight of the fact that their opportunities came from icons before him. The Dancehall artist recent single, “Icon,” on the Bad Bounce riddim, pays tribute to a long list of certified icons, all of whom helped “put the spotlight on we island” and established the worldwide success of Jamaican music.Audio & Photo Gallery After The Jump… Read more »
