Shaggy Talks Chronixx & Damian Grammy Plus New Album Dropping Next Year




Shaggy is gearing up to return to the scene with another classic dancehall album.

The dancehall legend is currently working on his next solo album as well as another joint project with Sting. During his sit down with Winford Williams last weekend, he opened up about his upcoming album, the state of the music, Chronixx and Damian Marley Grammy nomination, and his charity work with the Bustamante Hospital for Children. Speaking about the current wave of reggae/dancehall in the mainstream music, Shaggy said that he would like to see a little more chart action.

“I personally would like to see a little more chart action, mainstream chart action,” he said. “I think there is a movement, a strong reggae movement. I see more touring especially the roots artists them doing a lot of touring and connecting with an audience on a global scale. You don’t see much chart action, I think Sean [Paul] is probably one only few chart action you see now.”

Shaggy confirmed that he has an album coming out in February of next year, but didn’t give us the title. “I have an album coming out on Sony and I have been working on this album for the longest and keep changing it,” he said. The dancehall icon opened up about the Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album with Chronixx and Junior Gong being the hot favorite.

“In fairness, I’ve only listened to two albums out of that batch, I’ve listened to the Chronixx album [Chronology] and I’ve listened to the Junior Gong album [Stony Hill],” he added. “With both albums, it will be interesting to see who comes out on top. Chronixx at this point is clearly the crowd favorite locally. You see him at these concerts, he has a movement going on in Jamaica right now. Gong now has an album that is out and it will be interesting because he has more of an international appeal, more of a global brand and he is been around for a while, and he has being around a famous name in reggae music.”

Beenie Man Responds To Spice Calling Him Badmind





Beenie Man says that he is dumb founded why he was attacked by Spice and her fans for calling her the “designated” queen of dancehall.

The dancehall legend did an interview with Winford Williams on OnStage last weekend where he spoke about Spice crowning herself the new queen of dancehall. “Well the queen of dancehall baptized now,” Beenie said in reference to Lady Saw being baptized and is now a devote Christian. The deejay then said Spice will have to do as much work as Lady Saw did to elevate her status to the queen of the genre, but for now she is the designated queen.

Spice hit back at Beenie Man hard calling him “badmind” and even suggesting that Vybz Kartel is the real king of dancehall. “D Rasta man [Beenie Man] vex true mi say a Kartel a the king a dancehall,” Spice said. “Nothing is wrong with your sentence “The Queen got baptized” we all know that, but you also do know that the king is incarcerated right.”

In his defense, Beenie Man said in a video clip posted on Instagram that he didn’t said anything negative in his statement. “What I heard about Spice saying this about my interview and I heard about what her fans have to say,” the Doc said. “I have to wonder, everybody have wifi but is not everybody wisdom listen to what am saying, when somebody say you’re the designated queen that means you get a post to be someone but you’re not voted for by the mass. When you become the queen elect then that means that you’re voted for by the mass and now all you need is a crown to put on your head to become that queen. Now if you get anything negative from that?”

Watch Kalado “Bruck Foreigner” Short Film



Kalado won’t hang out with any broke foreigners. The dancehall deejay released a short film video for his new viral single “Bruk Foreigner.”

The Xtreme Arts-directed video features the Twin of Twins duo who appeared as the fictitious Ankle Sox and Big Wayne character. The video starts out with Ankle Sox calling Chin Chin who called up Chin Chin who lives in lives in Queens, New York and plays the broke foreigner character.

Kalado says the message he is sending in the video has been misunderstood, “Life hard anywhere you are both yard and abroad but it’s just how some people approach it,” he said in an interview with Winford Williams. In an interview last year, Kalado opened up about his struggles with depression where he again said that he was misunderstood.

“Its just an interview I did and you know how some people can focus only on the bad,” the dancehall star said. “It’s just showing them what channels took you through that depression. In the music thing you know the pressure and the hardship of working but is still in your life different from the musical side.”


Ricardo Fuller aka The Baller Breaks Silence Says Danielle D.I. Is Lying


Ricardo Fuller, aka The Baller, is calling Danielle D.I. a liar.

The former Stoke City striker breaks his silence following a recent interview by D.I. where she said that they were engaged and she walked away from the relationship with a £1 Million settlement. “When i was with my ex-fiancé, the baller, when mi and the baller lef is a £1 Million pound settlement mi and him guh, yeah? cause a wan rich rich rich millionaire dat mi guh in as the wife and exit as the wife,” she said during an interview with Winford Williams of OnStage.

Fuller, who is now married to another woman, is now saying that she was lying because they were never engaged and he never gave her a million dollars. “I Ricardo Fuller wish to refute claims made in a recent interview on stage aired on September 22nd, 2017 by Danielle Isaacs also known as D.I,” he said in a statement to the media. “I was never engaged to Danielle Isaacs neither did I give Danielle Isaacs £1 Million pounds as a settlement as she claimed on the program.”

In his lengthy statement, Ricardo Fuller also stated that his relationship with Danielle D.I. ended almost a decade ago and he also made a point to refute any other claims that she made about him during the interview. Fuller became embroiled in the controversy when Ishawna released a diss track aimed at D.I. where she sings “The Baller buss a salad and cut.” Seems that line in the song hit a sore spot for D.I. who spoke about it at length during the interview that you can watch below.
