Easter Bun Playlist

Easter Bun Playlist

A Multi-Genre Playlist With Songs About Infidelity

Easter represents a religious holiday with many associated traditions such as Easter eggs, baskets and bonnets. In the Caribbean, “Bun and Cheese” usually consist of one slice of a sharp, cheddar cheese encased between two slices of sweet, fruit bread. Besides a delicious holiday pastry, “Bun and Cheese” is an analogy for a love triangle and the term “Bun” itself  connotes cheating. There are a plethora of songs that describe various aspects of “Bun,” such as the physical attraction, excitement, lust, spontaneity, the heartache, the mental anguish, the retaliation and the irreversibility. This is a dancehall, reggae and rhythm and blues playlist of 11 songs that address the aforementioned phenomena. Playlist After The Jump

Mr. One Drop Chops It Up With Reshma B

The not-quite-20-year-old artist who brought us “One Drop” in 2013 talks about his latest smash, “Mosquito Net”—and gives Reshma B a quick lesson in how to do the dance (as well as a crash course in how young dancehall stars deal with the ladies). QQ also shares some of his plans for 2014—including a “major” 20th birthday party, and more work with his charitable foundation to uplift underprivileged and disabled children. He even previews his latest release, “Dutty Heart,” a special request to all the haters. Video After The Jump…

New Dance For De Gyal Dem
Back in 2005 a 10-year-old child star named QQ came out with a smash hit called “Better Must Come” on the Calibud label. The fresh-faced youth singing conscious tunes was a winning combination.
