WAYNE MARSHALL LANDS PERFORMANCE ON BET 106 & PARK



After dropping his critically-acclaimed album Tru Colors and touring the globe alongside Stephen "Ragga" Marley this year, Wayne Marshall is poised to take his sound to the next plateau. On August 27, 2014, the Jamaican dancehall singer will make his national TV debut performance on BET 106 & Park for their special Caribbean Carnival takeover episode.

That same week, he plans to drop his hip-hop flavored video (directed by Maybach Music's Jon J) for the album's latest single "Go Harder." The multi-talented singjay shot the video in sunny Miami with featured artists Waka Flocka, Ace Hood and Cham as well as Damian "Jr Gong" Marley, who produced most of Marshall's new album.

Hailed by the Associated Press as "a refreshing curve to the dancehall game," Tru Colors is Marshall's first album in over a decade. The 13-track collection, released on the Marley-owned label Ghetto Youths International and distributed through Thirty Tigers/Sony RED, was written almost entirely by Marshall. Tessanne Chin, NBC’s The Voice winner, also contributes lyrics on the album’s closing track “On The End.” The album features an all-star cast of collaborations, including Ace Hood, Cham & Waka Flocka on "Go Harder," Aidonia, Assassin, I-Octane, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Bounty Killer & Vybz Kartel on “Go Hard,” Assassin on "Stupid Money," Bounty Killer on "Be On The Alert," "Tarrus Riley" on "Nah Give Up" and Capleton on "Strike Dem." The album follows his 2013 digital-only EP Tru Colors (Ghetto Youths International) and his 20
03 LP Marshall Law (VP Records).

Kalado and Spice’s summer tour of Europe cancelled



Kingston, Jamaica:- Dynamic dancehall artistes, Kalado and Spice are as disappointed as their fans that, owing to a lack of professionalism on the part of the organisers, their highly anticipated, joint summer tour of Europe has been cancelled. The two entertainers should have left Jamaica this week to kick off what was scheduled to be a month-long European tour starting on August 7th and ending on August 30th. Both artistes were looking forward to touring together for the first time, in addition to which, this would have been Kalado’s first European tour.


The respective management teams for the artistes have disclosed that a lack of dutiful preparation from Kayamoves, the highly recommended, Europe-based agency which was handling all the details of the proposed tour, led to an unfortunate breakdown in communications. After experiencing many challenges during the four-month preparation time for the tour and receiving vital information from Kayamoves in an ad hoc manner, things finally fell apart.

“We were informed less than two weeks prior to the beginning of the tour that the itinerary was not complete, after several attempts weeks prior to that requesting the touring schedule and information. The proposed tour was in the works for almost four months and up to this day we have not received a final itinerary to approve from the Agency,” the management teams said in a joint statement.

Kalado and his management team have stated that they have no option but to distance themselves from Kayamoves and are informing the public that they have no agreement with Kayamoves and the agency is not authorized to book any shows for Kalado. All promoters who are interested in booking Kalado for Europe are advised to contact Montrevail Agencies on 514-375-0388 or at montrevail@live.com and for Spice, Khool International Booking Agency at 876-877-5956.

Kalado and Spice have expressed their apologies to their fans and note that they regret being denied the opportunity to showcase their summer catalogue and perform their several hit songs live and direct in front of a welcoming European crowd.

However, they will be working on some future dates together as they bring their talent and their catalogue to centrestage. Both artistes are hot on the scene, with Kalado presently #1 on the Richie B Jamaica Countdown Charts with Personally and Spice continues her dominance with hot remixes and new songs Like a Man which she performed to an enthusiastic crowd at Reggae Sumfest.

Morgan Heritage's "Put It On Me" Is a Summer Scorcher



Summer is sizzlin' and so is Morgan Heritage's sultry single "Put it on Me." Once again, the powerhouse group has wowed listeners with beautiful music. Undeniably a hit among Reggae music fans, "Put it on Me" showcases Morgan Heritage in another light. Namely, the song demonstrates a sensual, personal side of the family band, which is driving listeners wild. The song, produced by Shane C. Brown for Juke Boxx Records, in conjunction with CTBC Music, has garnered worldwide media attention, so much so that the group has been invited to perform the steamy song, along with other favorites, live at the Sirius/XM studios in Manhattan in August.

"We wanted to show another side of our group, which we had never done before," says Morgan Heritage.
"We are real people who love what all people love ....the basic things in life. Love & passion is a major part of ALL relationships," the group adds.


The provocative, yet subtle "Put it on Me" single sets a joyful mood. From the moment the one drop melody kicks in, "Put it on Me" is a certified winner. An ode to their significant others, "Put it on Me" appeals to both males and females. Adding to the songs incredible buzz is the even cuter video, which features warming scenes of each member with their significant other. The scenes playfully demonstrate just how and why their mates "put it on them." This Morgan Heritage/Shane C. Brown combo will continue to prosper.

"OOOO Feel it in the morning, yeah you got me feel it in the evening, its just the way you put the goodie on me OOO makes me want it all the time."

From Petah's sweet opening vocals to the raspy soul entrenched voice of Gramps Morgan, "Put it on Me" melts hearts. Currently, "Put it on Me" is making a splash internationally, scoring airplay on BBC and other major radio stations. Morgan Heritage's "IJAM Reggae American" summer tour is a force to be reckoned with, landing the band a bevy of festival, theater style and intimate performances in key U.S. cities. For over 20 years, Morgan Heritage has been winning hearts with their harmonious Roots Rock Reggae brand. Japanese fans are highly anticipating their performance at the famed Yokohama Reggae SAI (Might Crown stadium show), which is set to draw upwards of 40,000 people.
