The melodic and captivating ‘Love Like Ours’ gives fans a first taste of the upcoming album that will showcase the pivotal influence reggae music has had on the London, England born singer. Raised in a religious, Senegalese/ Grenadian household, Estelle’s musical upbringing included a variety of Afro-Caribbean, Gospel, Hip-Hop and dance styles with a healthy dose of reggae music.

Since 2008 and the release of the crossover radio hit “Come Over” featuring reggae star Sean Paul and produced by Supa Dups (Sean Paul, Drake, Party Next Door), fans have been encouraging Estelle to record a reggae album. This project will bring their desires to life with a unique fusion of lover’s rock, afro beats and dancehall flavors anchoring her soulful, R&B vocals. “When I told some friends about doing this album” said Estelle, “they were like – ‘finally!'” She continued, “everyone who knows me, understands the deep connection I have to reggae music.” Estelle has joined forces with Supa Dups again on this project and her fans excitement for the full album is brewing.,br>

Estelle has shown a wide and expanding range of talent and with this album, will complete the musical circle, showcasing one of her earliest musical influences. The singer concluded, “I’m happy to give the people what they have been asking for and I’m proud to share another piece of my life and art with the world.”

Rayven Justice – Don’t Matter (featuring J. Stalin & Sleepy D)


If Rayven Justice’s music sounds like a mix of West Coast cool and Southern boom, it might have something to do with is upbringing and how it involves two of hip-hop’s most influential cities, Oakland, California and Atlanta, Georgia. Born in Oakland, raised in Atlanta until he was 10, and then returning to Oakland, singer and rapper Justice began making music on the West Coast with his brother Raymel. Taking the name the Justice Brothers, the two took music seriously enough, but when Raymel was tragically killed in a shooting, Rayven considered it his duty to carry on in his brother’s name. His breakthrough came in 2010 when he joined rapper Kafani on the track “Throw the Cash.” In 2012, Justice signed with the Ice King label and released his debut album Both Sides of the Tracks. ~ David Jeffries

Jace The Great feat. Sonyae Elise – Celebration

Jace the Great is back with another hit. His new record “Celebration” feat. Sonyae Elise is one that embodies the meaning of family and good times. Celebration, is one of those records that you want to add to your playlist not only at family reunions and cook outs, but when you wake up in the morning or have that feeling of being grateful for just being alive. For Example, “Today we’re celebrating life and good sportsmanship, because somebody somewhere is lets fortunate” are one of the many lyrics Jace uses to cement what it means to celebrate. With all that is going on in the world today I truly encourage all of those reading this to listen to “Celebration” by Jace the Great and allow someone somewhere to become touched by his passion.
