Edley Shine Drops Stunning Visual For “Glow Party”

International recording artiste Edley Shine’s latest offering is a welcome treat for music lovers around the world. In celebration of one year since the release of his debut 2020 EP, “Based On Talent”, he has released the stunning visuals for the 4th single, “Glow Party” on Friday, July 23, 2021.

“I’m just showing diversity, a different sound and showing my audience there’s more to my vocal ability than they may be aware of. I could have opted to get a singer to feature on ‘Glow Party’ but I demoed it for a couple singers and they basically shot me down to collab for whatever reason. So I just kept the demo and that’s what people hear on the final product on the EP,” the artiste revealed. 

The track is currently one of the most streamed songs on the EP.  “‘Glow Party’ is an international record that is being played in Africa, Europe, South America and pockets of the Caribbean. So, the data I’ve seen shows me that the song needs the proper nurturing to live out its full potential,” the artiste elaborated.

Released independently at the heights of the pandemic, “Based On Talent” is a strong body of work that the artiste is quite proud of, jam-packed with a slew of high quality productions.

“It’s music that does not conform to any of the trends or norms of modern Dancehall and Reggae. It’s the vegetables on the plate most people will not consume on the first, second or third presentation but for the most part, people that appreciate good music have personally reached out to me and stated I deserve more recognition for staying myself and making quality music that stands pass the viral and hype cycle of today’s music standards,” he expressed.

Formerly ½ of the explosive duo Born Jamericans, Edley Shine is living up to his name and taking his talents to the world. In an ever evolving industry, the artiste has managed to remain timely and relevant as an independent artiste, with a slew of hits under his belt.  “With ‘Glow Party’, I just continue to show people that there’s more in store from my brand and this was just a statement project to let the industry know that your favourite artiste is here to stay,” he stated.

In addition to “Glow Party”, he has released a red-hot Summer Series of music, including “Cloud 9”, “Money Face” and “Sweet Baby Pt. 2 (Inna Dem Town).” Expect even more projects from Edley Shine in the coming months, with new music currently in the works.

“Glow Party” is available for purchase and streaming on major digital platforms online.

Mr. Easy Sizzles with New Scorcher ‘Friends Fi Life’

The summer heat is scorching just like Mr. Easy’s new single “Friends Fi Life,” featuring De Alpha. In just a short time since its release, “Friends Fi Life” is blazing national and international radio, the sound fraternity, the Dancehall and music lovers far and wide! The red-hot song speaks to Mr. Easy’s proven track record of cranking out hit music over his longrunning career.

Produced by DJ Jason and Romie Fame Records on the Legacy Riddim, “Friends Fi Life” boasts both an upbeat tempo and message. Mr. Easy and rising star De Alpha are the ideal voices to bring the melodic ode to friendship loyalty to life. “Friends Fi Life” is likely resonating so well with listening audiences because of it’s catchy hook, impactful verses and theme that never grows old, especially during such trying times.

You are mi friend fi life

Through the roughest of times and you still deya by my side

You are mi friend fi life

When nothing nuh gwan negative we neva emphasize

You are mi friend fi life

You’re more than a brother genuine like leather mi genna

Mi friend fi life


When nothing nuh gwan and you still deya by mi side

Whether selectors and sounds speed the record up, much to the delight of the dancers with choreographed moves, or play it at its original tempo, “Friends Fi Life” is a bonafide crowd pleaser. Adding to the song’s notable buzz, Mr. Easy and De Alpha have performed the song on multiple media platforms. Further, the duo are set to release a visual for the song later this month.

As if Mr. Easy couldn’t get musically hotter this summer, the “Drive Me Crazy” crooner has also released sizzlers like “COW-ADD” and “Dem Nuh Real.” These “real life” style songs are also receiving attention among tastemakers. Mr. Easy’s new summer releases are fresh off the heels of the motivational “Conquer The World” from his fourth studio album “Legendary,” a 9-track treasure trove of great Reggae music.

Much to his credit, Mr. Easy shows no signs of slowing down and continues to make timeless music. Notably, Mr. Easy helped shape the sound of Dancehall’s 90’s & 00’s Golden Era with loads of hit music.

Mr. Easy Brings Inspirational ‘Conquer The World’ to Life with Authentic New Music Video

Kingston, JamaicaApril 2021 (Acclaim PR) — Amidst trying times, Reggae and Dancehall star Mr. Easy continues his mission to inspire the masses with music. His latest effort comes to us in the form of a remarkable visual for his current single “Conquer The World.” The moving music video is right on time, invoking communal, feel good vibes just when we need them.

Although the pandemic has truly affected the entertainment industry as a whole, Mr. Easy’s creativity has been unwavering, as evidenced with his groundbreaking “Legendary” album, which dropped near the close of 2020. “Conquer The World,” the second single from the notable Reggae project produced by Lord Kimo, has been buzzin’ since it’s release.

Garfield McCook Kicks Off Festival Competition for the Jamaican Diaspora

Kingston, Jamaica — April 2021 (Powerhouse Global Media/Acclaim PR) — Garfield McCook has launched the Jamaica International Independence Festival Song Competition (JIIFSC) as a way of continuing Jamaican cultural events abroad. The inaugural staging of the USA-based competition is set to bring more opportunities for overseas Jamaican artists, who do not typically have a chance to participate in the events being hosted in Jamaica.

McCook, an artist who goes by the name of Gary G and hails from Harbour View, migrated to the United States in the late 80’s. He says, “In 2017, I enquired about entering the Jamaica Festival Song Competition. However, the rules and regulations stated that an entrant must be living in Jamaica 2 years prior to entering the competition. Since I was residing in the USA, the rule automatically eliminated me.”

“I reached out to the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission via email asking them to explain the rationale behind the rule, but I received no response. I reached out again in 2018 and received no response.  I then investigated the possibility of having a competition that Jamaicans living abroad could enter,” McCook explained.

JIIFSC will be an annual event and is open to Jamaicans, 18 years and older, who reside outside of Jamaica. Artists can get involved, by completing an application on the JIIFSC.com website by May 15, 2021. When submitting the application artistes are required to pay a non-refundable entrance fee of US$150. They must upload their song in a MP3 format, and email a lyrics sheet to jiifsc@gmail.com.

Slated to take place on July 31, 2021, the premier competition will be broadcasted virtually from 7pm to 10pm EST across multiple digital platforms. There will be a limited live audience, including guest appearances, judges and promoters, at the venue, which is Caribbean Life TV Studios (CLTV Studios) in Stone Mountain, Georgia.

Artists who may not have an MP3 ready can submit the application and fee by May 15, 2021. An MP3 can follow and be submitted by May 31, 2021. Groups can be 2-4 members and songs should be no longer than 4 minutes in length. Top participants can expect grand incentives, with the first, second and third prizes being US $8,000, US $4,000 and US $1,000 respectively.

“The aim of this competition is to provide Jamaican artistes residing overseas, who still have a penchant for the culture and the music, with a platform that allows them to showcase their talents. Our motto is, ‘Loving You From Afar.’ Part proceeds from profits received will go towards the enhancement of the cultural activities in Jamaica,” McCook added.
