His new album titled ‘Can’t Get Over You’, was released in Japan in July of this year and is doing very well. It will be released to the rest of the world in 2007, but with a twist re-titled to ‘On My Mind’, the title name of his leading number one song. Incidentally speaking about the new album, his third single from the album “This Time I Promise” was released this week.
|Coming tough on and off the dancefloor, everybody will “Bounce” on T.O.K.’s high energy tune on the Inspector Riddim. “The world’s greatest Dancehall-reggae band,” according to the New York Times, is back with their new single off their anticipated album due in early 2007.
Reminiscent to his earlier tunes that lead him to multi-platinum success, Sean Paul goes “All Out” with grittier lyrics and a slamming sound on this new tune over the Dem Time Deh Riddim.
The hottest dancehall artist on the scene, Tony Matterhorn, has won over the dancehalls, streets and mainstream airwaves with two singles currently on the charts. With a creative play on words and original hard-hitting vocals over the Gully Slime Riddim, Tony Matterhorn’s # 1 hit “Good As” remains at the top of the Jamaican dancehall charts.
Daville’s silky smooth tenor sends chills to the spine with one familiar phrase…. “Always On My Mind,” after spending 6 weeks at the #1 spot on the Reggae RE Charts.
Richie Spice does not hold his title without reason. His current chart-topper “Brown Skin” adds more spice and richness to the catalog of tributes made for the black woman’s beauty and worth. With a sultry soulful voice that can make any woman melt, this legendary singjay provides meaninglful conscious lyrics even on his love songs.
No one can express “Love and Affection,” better than sweet sound of Wayne Wonder. For years this superstar has been producing multiple Lover’s Rock hits that have reached crossover success and plans to expand on these triumphs with his new album expected in Spring 2007.

|New York, NY – On the eve of his new release, dance hall legend Sizzla announces national tour dates. His new album, The Overstanding, is scheduled to be released on November 21st, 2006. The Overstanding will be marketed and distributed by DDMG / Kalonji Records.
Sizzla emerged during the latter half of the ’90s, and quickly became one of the leaders of the modern dancehall movement. Along with Buju Banton and Capleton, he helped lead dancehall back to the musical and spiritual influence of roots reggae, favoring organic productions and heavily Rastafarian subject matter.
Sizzla’s first success came with the release of Praise Ye Jah in 1997. Widely considered one of the top modern dancehall albums of its time, Praise Ye Jah was quickly trumped by the release of Black Woman & Child that same year. The title track was a smash hit and became something of a cultural reggae anthem. Sizzla continued to release a string of successful albums including Be I Strong in 1999, the spiritually driven, hip-hop influenced Bobo Ashanti in 2001, and Da Real Thing in 2002, where he concentrated on softer, mellower, more romantic material. With a catalogue of over 40 albums to his credit, Sizzla remains one of the most if not the most widely respected figures in all of dancehall reggae. The Overstanding hits stores on November 21st, 2006.
