Emily Rodgers – Blame

[Guitars intro]

I’m in [?]
Like you are gone
You remind me we’re alone
You don’t, you don’t come around
You don’t come around.

And I, I don’t blame you
And I, I don’t blame you
And I, I don’t blame you
Cause I won’t catch you when you fall

I wanna know where you’ve been
You’ve faded so fast
When I loved you, I was alone
When I loved you, I was alone
I was alone.

And I-I-I, I don’t blame you
And I-I-I, I don’t blame you
And I-I-I, I don’t blame you
Cause I won’t catch you when you fall

Emily Rodgers – I will be gone

[Guitars intro]

You’re palping with your arms
I was passed out on the road
But you catched me again
But you catched me again

Did you even try?
Did you even try?

And I knew him when he was young,
I knew him when he was young
And I won’t forget him when I’m gone.
When I will be gone.
I will be gone.

Everything [?] ever shown you
Would cut out, never say

Did you even try?
Did you, did you even try?

Cause I knew him when he was young
And I knew him when he was young
And I won’t forget him when I’m gone.
When I will be gone.
I will be gone.
I will be gone.
I will be gone.
I will be, I will be gone.
I will be.

Nick Jonas – This is Heaven

At the gate, come inside, I know that it’s late
But I’m here, ’cause you’re body my motivation
Let’s skip the talk
What if we found a way to get lost without fear?
Keep it all behind, we’re escaping

If you told me that my fate was on your fingertips
I wouldn’t believe it (Wouldn’t believe it)
I wouldn’t believe it (I wouldn’t believe it)
Every kiss with you, it’s like your prayer falls from my lips
Now I’m a believer (I’m a believer)
I’m a bеliever (Oh)

[Chorus]
This is Heavеn
And I don’t know how this could get much better (Yeah)
Than you and me, here right now
This is Heaven
And every time I touch you, it gets better
I’m on my knees, I can’t stop now
This is Heaven (This is Heaven, yeah, this is Heaven)
This is Heaven (This is Heaven, oh, this is Heaven)
This is

Sunrise, another long night lost in your eyes
So don’t blink
You’re the center of my attention
I know, nothing is perfect, but this is close
So don’t go, keep it coming in my direction

If you told me that my fate was on your fingertips
Then, I wouldn’t believe it (Wouldn’t believe it)
I wouldn’t believe it (I wouldn’t believe it)
Every kiss with you, it’s like your prayer falls from my lips
Now I’m a believer (I’m a believer)
I’m a believer (Oh)

[Chorus]
This is Heaven
And I don’t know how this could get much better (Yeah)
Than you and me, here right now
This is Heaven
And every time I touch you, it gets better (Keeps getting better)
I’m on my knees, I can’t stop now
This is Heaven (This is Heaven, yeah, this is Heaven)
This is Heaven (This is Heaven, oh, this is Heaven)
I’m on my knees, I can’t stop now
This is

I’m a believer, oh-oh

[Chorus]
This is Heaven
And I don’t know how this could get much better (Yeah)
Than you and me, here right now
This is Heaven
And every time I touch you, it gets better
I’m on my knees, I can’t stop now
This is Heaven (This is Heaven, yeah, this is Heaven)
This is Heaven (This is Heaven, oh, this is Heaven)
I’m on my knees, I can’t stop now

This is Heaven (This is Heaven, this is Heaven)
This is Heaven (This is Heaven, this is Heaven)
This is Heaven

Cortes – Norocos

Yeah
Ma lupt zi de zi cu rutina
Norocul de mine tot nu se lipeste,
Oricare zi care vine
Devine un fel de vineri, 13
Daca imi spal azi masina,
Fii sigur ca maine-o sa ploua
La table nu dau 6-6, la 6 din 49
n-am vila, terasa, piscina
nu am prin conturi vreun million
Ma-ntreb oare cine-I de vina
C-am luat numai tone de ghinion?
Le port cu mine, valiza e plina
Oglinda e sparta, pisica de-acasa e neagra
[?] sub o scar ace vrea sa ma-ntoarca din drum inc-o data
Raman fara vlaga
Lasa banda sa mearga, lasa timpul sa treaca
Trecutul sa-l stearga, mii de ziduri sa sparga
Incep toate sa mearga, ca la plan
Am cu mine cel mai de pret talisman

Sunt norocos ca te am
Ca te am, ca te am, ca te am, ca te am
Sunt norocos ca te am
Ca te am, ca te am, ca te am, ca te am
Chiar nu sunt prea supertitios
Cu tine ma simt chiar cel mai norocos,
Sunt norocos ca te am
Ca te am, ca te aaam

Yeah
Si parca astrele-mi zambesc mai des,
De cand esti tu pe aici
Cand mai sunt gata sa pic de la stress
Faci totul sa ma ridici,
La fel, tu pe mine poti sa contezi
C-o sa vin mereu cand ma strigi,
Mergem mereu prin univers, fara regrete si fara frici
Fara de pete, sau cicatrice
Noi ii dam tot inainte
Zeita, furtuna ne prinde din urma si iar ne aprinde
Chiar fara prea multe cuvinte
Ca doar energia ne-o simte
Si vrea sa m-alinte, ca la plan
Am cu mine cel mai de pret talisman

Sunt norocos ca te am
Ca te am, ca te am, ca te am, ca te am
Sunt norocos ca te am
Ca te am, ca te am, ca te am, ca te am
Chiar nu sunt prea supertitios
Cu tine ma simt chiar cel mai norocos,
Sunt norocos ca te am
Ca te am, ca te aaam
Sunt norocos ca te am.
Sunt norocos ca te am.
Ca te am, ca te am, ca te am.

Mgmt – Plenty Of Girls In The Sea Lyrics

There’s plenty of girls in the sea
And plenty of seeds in a lemon
The trick is in trying to stay free
When it’s never that great to begin with
The surgeon performs precise little cuts
But he’s never perfect, he’s thinking too much
And it’s really no comfort to me
There’s plenty of girls in the sea

There’s plenty of girls in the sea
And plenty of those are not women
As soon as you get yourself free
Then somebody stops you from swimming
The lifeguard admits, his whistle in hand
That it isn’t the muscle, and it isn’t the tan
No it’s whatever you want it to be

There’s plenty of girls in the sea

Ah the passionate painter will say with a brush:
“It’s best to accept it and not make a fuss
Just cause the grass isn’t green”
Yeah, there’s plenty of girls in the sea

There’s plenty of girls in the sea
And plenty of clowns in the village
The trick is to try to be free
And tend to the void, don’t just fill it
The bartender concedes, from inside his vest
That none of the best ones were ever the best
So keep it short, simple and sweet
Cause there’s plenty of girls in the sea
Whenever you want there to be

Sam Smith And Normani’s “Dancing With A Stranger” Earns 3 Billion Streams

Sam Smith and Normani have achieved a new collaboration milestone with their song “Dancing with a Stranger” earning a reported 3 billion streams worldwide, according to Chart Data on Twitter.

The song is widely popular as it speaks to a post-break scenario that many of their fans seem to relate to. So far, the song has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide in addition to the high streaming numbers. On YouTube, it has 624 million views since dropping in 2019.

After the song came out in January 2019, it quickly rose to No.1 on Billboard’s radio songs and Adult Top 40 charts in May after playing for 15 and 17 weeks on each chart, respectively.

Sam Smith, who spoke about the motivation behind the song, said in a Billboard interview, “I had just gone through a breakup and the last thing I wanted to do was write a sad song… I was listening to a lot of really sexy music because it made me feel better, so I wanted the song to capture what I was doing: going to clubs and kissing people.”

Normani, however, says her part of the song was unplanned as she was at the studio, and she was told he had a record to play her. After listening to the song, she was invited to “jump on it,” and it was at that exact moment that her contribution to the song came to life!

The song, which is enjoyed by a variety of age groups, continues to be one of the number one played songs and is said to be a classic in the making.

Normani has been solo since leaving the girl group Fifth Harmony which also included break-out artist Camilla Cabello. Normani has previously called out certain members of the band, including Cabello, for racist comments.

[Chorus]
I’m running low on serotonin
Chemical imbalance got me twisting things
Stabilize with medicine
There’s no depth to these feelings
Dig deep, can’t hide
From the corners of my mind
I’m terrified of what’s inside

[Verse 1]
I get intrusive thoughts like cutting my hands off
Like jumping in front of a bus
Like how do I make this stop
When it feels like my therapist hates me?
Please don’t let me go crazy
Put me in a field with daisies
Might not work, but I’ll take a maybe
Oh, been breaking daily
But only me can save me
So I’m capitulating, crying likе a fucking baby

[Non-Lyrical Vocals]

[Chorus]
I’m running low on serotonin
Chemical imbalance got mе twisting things
Stabilize with medicine
There’s no depth to these feelings
Dig deep, can’t hide
From the corners of my mind
I’m terrified of what’s inside

[Verse 2]
I get intrusive thoughts
Like burning my hair off
Like hurting somebody I love
Like, does it ever really stop?
When there’s control, I lose it
Incredibly impulsive
So scared I’m gonna end up doing something stupid
But I try to contain it
Oh, it gets so draining
It’s like my heart is failing
Every night, I’m contemplating
My inner voice is saying “tough”
So I try to brush it off
Yeah, I try to brush it off

[Chorus]
I’m running low on serotonin
Chemical imbalance got me twisting things
Stabilize with medicine
But there’s no depth to these feelings
Dig deep, can’t hide
From the corners of my mind
I’m terrified of what’s inside

[Verse 1: Adam Levine]
It’s beautiful, it’s bittersweet
You’re like a broken home to me
I take a shot of memories
And black out like an empty street
I fill my days with the way you walk
And fill my nights with broken dreams
I make up lies inside my head
Like one day you’ll come back to me

[Pre-Chorus: Adam Levine]
Now I’m not holding on, not holding on
I’m just depressed that you’re gone
Not holding on, not holding on

[Chorus: Adam Levine]
Beautiful mistakes
I make inside my head, she’s naked in my bed
And now we lie awake, makin’ beautiful mistakes
I wouldn’t take ‘еm back, I’m in love with the past
And now we liе awake, makin’ beautiful mistakes

[Post-Chorus: Adam Levine]
Nah-nah-nah, in my head
Nah-nah-nah, in my bed
Nah-nah-nah, eh
Makin’ beautiful mistakes

[Verse 2: Adam Levine]
It’s pitiful, I can’t believe
How every day gets worse for me
I take a break, I cut you off
To keep myself from lookin’ soft
I fill my nights with the way you was
And still wake up with broken dreams
I make these lies inside my head
Feel like they’re my reality

[Pre-Chorus: Adam Levine]
Now I’m not holding on, not holding on
I’m just depressed that you’re gone
Not holding on, not holding on

You did me wrong ’cause I let you (Let you)
Usually, I like my situations beneficial
Doin’ something different, got me lookin’ stupid (Damn)
The only way I’m comin’ back to you is if you’re dreaming, lucid (Hmm)
Prove it, if you made a promise then keep it (Keep it)
Why you wanna lie and then get mad? I don’t believe it (Boy, bye)
But really, I was doin’ just fine without ya
Lookin’ fine, sippin’ wine, dancin’ on club couches (Ah)
Baby, why you wanna lose me like you don’t need me? (Don’t need me)

How you figure out how to call me from the TV? (Huh?)
You’re runnin’ outta chances and this time I mean it (Ah)

Vybz Kartel Dominating Dancehall A Decade After Incarceration – What’s His Secret?

Critics of the dancehall legend, who is aptly called ‘Worl’Boss,’ proclaimed in 2014 ahead of his sentencing that if convicted, the life and career of the controversial but highly gifted artist would be effectively over.

Fast forward to 2021, and a lot has changed from 2014 when Kartel was convicted and sentenced to 35 years to life for the murder of a former acquaintance, and now, the world in the throes of a pandemic. While things have changed, it has also remained the same as Vybz Kartel’s dominance spreads from jail and continues to top the charts locally and abroad.

Vybz Kartel continues to enjoy top-of-the-line airplay on local radios. While other artists might be lucky to get one or two of their songs played, there is no other artist who regularly and on-demand enjoys whole sessions of their catalogs played, whether it’s a whole session of girl tunes or wining tunes for his female fans or bad man tunes for his male Gaza fans.

One thing has been missing, though, and that is the stage presence of the artiste, which is a very common factor in the dancehall space in Jamaica. Fans and DJs tend to give more ‘fawud’ to DJs who are present. But that isn’t the case with Vybz Kartel.

According to ZJ Chrome, the producer of Vybz Kartel’s No. 1 track “Clarks,” which also launched the career of Dancehall superstar Popcaan, he feels that Kartel has in some respects faded from the dancehall scene as is natural with artists who are around for a long time but his dominance in untested given his cult-like fan base.

“I would say yes and I would say no. Yes just like any other industry the people move on, and the music changes and evolves and you have new people who are more relevant in dancehall. But he still has one of the biggest fan bases in dancehall and his streaming numbers are definitely one of the top three in dancehall.”

ZJ Chrome / IG @zjchrome

“As it relates to the streets maybe he’s losing a bit of the streets because of a lack of presence but his fans are the die hearted fans that stick around, so he’s fading but that’s the natural fade if you ask me because no artiste stays on top forever, but he’s still even with his fading his numbers says he’s the best out there.”

ZJ Chrome says that even though Kartel is not here, not much will change as long as fans are getting the type of music they expect from their favorite icon.

What is perceived to be a fading might also be something the artiste is aware of. In 2019, he dismissed YouTube trending and views as a mark of relevance and called it a “kid’s game.” At the time, fans and critics reacted to his Rock Pop song “No Ok,” which many said sounded like a Disney movie soundtrack- something that is also almost a compliment as the artiste’s versatility was once more on display as he sought to expand his fan base to a new genre of music previous dancehall artists have not ventured to do.

“Vybz Kartel is bigga dan YouTube trending…lef it fi di kids… Gold n Platinum ai pre,” he said. No doubt his reference was to his streaming numbers, such as his RIAA Gold Certified “Fever.”

In spite of those criticisms, Kartel was the most streamed artist in 2019, and in 2020, he still had the most collective YouTube streams at more than 12.5 million views up to the first part of the year.

Vybz Kartel is now known one as one of the most prolific dancehall artists alive and to have lived.

It all began when a young Adidja Palmer dropped out early from Calabar High School to pursue his musical passions. Palmer came from a strict home where education was a priority, but at the height of that decade was the sweeping popularity of reggae music and the rise of dancehall music, and the lure was too strong for the young Palmer.

Soon he called himself Adi Banton, after his inspiration figure Buju Banton and in 1983, at the young age of 17 years old, he recorded his first single, “Love Fat Woman.” It wasn’t long after he joined the budding “Alliance” group led by the enigmatic and widely controversial artiste Bounty Killer. His rise to stardom started with his skills as a writer for the Grung Gadzilla, and he quickly becomes one to look out for as a promising rising star. This is also where he met his future rival Mavado.

It wasn’t long after he left Alliance, dissatisfied with the way things were going and set out on his own as an independent artiste- something many Alliance members viewed as being ungrateful, and if you are born in the Caribbean, there is no greater sin than to be ungrateful!

Nevertheless, the young Palmer had talent, and fans who had an eye and ear for good lyrics were drawn to him. This was the beginning of the passionate or, as one former Prime Minister of Jamaica called it- his ‘rabid’ fans base called Gaza. Of course, at the time that Palmer was rising, clash culture in dancehall was the greatest way to launch an artiste’s career, and so his beef with Mavado led to one beef after another while their loyal fans drew battle lines as they identified as either Mavado’s Gully or Kartel’s Gaza. The war touched every section of society as Kartels dominance spread- from the ghettos in the inner city to high schools. Police say the feud over Gully vs. Gaza was responsible for several murders and shootings along Mannings Hill Road.

Vybz Kartel 2004 in Brooklyn

By this time, Vybz Kartel was now known and respected as the top dancehall act by fans and critics alike as he formed his own Gaza camp, which included the likes of Jah Vinci, Popcaan, Gaza Kim, Lisa Hyper, Black Rhyno, Meritol, and others. Soon though, they became aware of the dark personality that is Vybz Kartel. His life became characterized by controversy as rumors swirled that he would beat his artists, and deejay Gaza Kim showed photos of her face battered, which she says were as a result of her and her brother being attacked and beaten by men at the direction of Kartel.

Kartel, however, did not accept responsibility for the incident; instead, he condemned violence against women and girls. Gaza Kim was eventually expelled, and not long after, one by one, the other members of the camp were also expelled for one reason or the other.

In the years as Vybz Kartel, the artist, unfolded, he also became a father to three children with his common-law wife Tanesha ‘Shorty’ Johnson, and he also fathered children with a number of other women.

The controversy with Kartel also included the move to bleach his skin, changing from a person with a darker skin tone to someone several shades lighter- at one point, his skin tone was almost white.

In spite of this, support for him did not wane, but he became rather more popular. He also thrived musically as he released dozens of hit songs and toured the world, becoming a global style icon and even appearing in video games.

Up to the time of his arrest, his income is said to have been eye-watering from his many business ventures that included his Street Vybz Rum, condoms, cake soap, and Clarks footwear, along with his music that was also becoming streamed globally.

The years prior to his arrest saw a number of hits released as Kartel dominated the space, making it hard for other dancehall acts to get the level of attention he was enjoying.

With digital music streaming starting to gain traction, he quickly re-arranged his strategies to meet the changing ways fans consumed music. This move would prove to be a lucrative new stream of income for Kartel. It is arguably the most productive and long-lived, which also assists with keeping him relevant behind bars.

Although he previously saw Billboard success in 2009 with “Romping Shop” featuring Spice, his album debut on the chart came in 2011 with Kingston story, a digital album and later an extended version in 2012, debuting at No. 13 on the chart. This was the beginning of Kartel’s streaming dominance.

He also received wide acclaim for his album “Roots and Culture: the Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto, in 2013, and that same year released a number of hits that continue to be fan favorites today, including –”Georgina,” “Punani a mi best friend,” the shocking and controversial song celebrating oral sex “Freaky Gal” part 1,2,3; “Benz Punani,” “Why Pree,” “Summer Time,” “Bike Back,” “Cake soap”- which set off the trend among Jamaicans to bleach their skin, “Touch a Button,” are just a few notable songs among the 50-odd songs he released.

He also received success for Kartel Forever: Trilogy in 2014 and Reggae Love Songs and Other Things also released in 2014. Following his arrest, his hits continued to resound with the release of Viking (Vybz is King) which peaked at No. # on Billboard Hot 100 in 2015 and the widely successful “King of the Dancehall” debuting at No. 2 on the chart in 2016 and he was certified Gold by the RIAA for the song “Fever” released in 2016. He has since released dozens if not hundreds of songs since his pre-incarceration days.

Some critics feel that the artist has been releasing too much music that isn’t having the same impact. However, a check shows that Kartel is among the top five most-streamed artists for dancehall on Audiomack each week.

Additionally, one music producer who requested anonymity says Kartel may be a bigger influence in jail as if he was out of jail. He asserts that many of the new young artists are trying to become the next Vybz Kartel.

“Some [new artistes] look up to him but they will try not to do it intentionally. Some people admit it and some don’t. Some don’t because they have a market strategy and they are using that to create a fake illusion of being anti-Kartel and using that to get a buzz when Gaza fans react,” he said.

The producer says Kartel’s influence can be seen by the way young artists are mimicking aspects of the artiste’s personality and style- his creativity, and selling themselves by starting controversies which Kartel did back in the day but nowadays that is now akin to trending online.

“It’s like the deejays who all want to be like Shabba…whenever an artiste is at the top you always find a string of young artists deejay like him in his era in hopes of getting the kind of success he has and they study and copy him.”

Meanwhile, when asked what he thinks accounts for Kartel’s longevity and if he foresees it to continue into the future- especially in light of Vybz Kartel’s appeal of his murder sentence to the Privy Council in England, he says nothing is likely to change given Kartel’s fan base.

“He’s getting public buzz but also the streaming numbers. He has a loyal fan base that reacts and responds immediately. Just watch if the Teacha’ post nothing…. They instanteously react to his directions to make videos, promote and stream his music. He doesn’t need anyone else.”

Even behind bars for a decade, the dancehall deejay is the strongest artist, something that has never before been seen in the genre’s history. Other artists in jail like Ninja Man have not released any new music since being incarcerated, but Vybz Kartel continues to flood the airwaves.

“If the man is behind the bar and doing so well imagine if he is in the streets! Even before Covid he has been dominating the dancehall space. In real life he is a genius. The impact he brought to dancehall nobody has done that.”

Vybz Kartel & Shawn Storm Leaving Court in 2014

Vybz Kartel and his co-accused, which includes artiste Shawn Campbell aka Shawn Storm, his close friends Kahira Jones and Andre St. John, have been granted leave to appeal their life sentences at the Privy Council. Their hearing is said to be sometime in 2021.

Despite being incarcerated for the past decade, Vybz Kartel remains one of Jamaica’s most influential artists. Though some may argue that his relevance is waning, his streaming numbers tell a different story.

Aside from being a musical genius, his secret to his success is his work ethics and ability to adapt with the changing musical landscape.

Patti Page – Mister And Mississippi Lyrics

I can’t recall my mother
I don’t remember dad
Mister and Mississippi was all I ever had
Oh, I was born to wander
I was born to roam
And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home

My cradle was the river
My school a river boat
My teacher was a gambler
The slickest one afloat
My teacher was a gambler
The slickest one afloat
He taught me not to gamble on a petticoat

Oh, I was born to wander
I was born to roam
And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home

Oh, darlin’ how I love you
What more is there to say
I love you like a barefoot girl

Loves the summer day
The way a wanderin’ gypsy
Loves the changing sea
Just like the restless river
Loves old New Orleans

I love a tiny village
A quiet country town
A house, a little garden
With kiddies runnin’ ’round
You’d be a faithful husband
I’d be a trusty friend
Until I heard that steamboat
Comin’ ’round the bend

Oh, I was born to wander
I was born to roam
And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home

Oh, I was born to wander
I was born to roam
And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home

Lil Durk Cops New KIng Von Chain As 6ix9ine Continues To Slander Late Rapper

Lil Durk splurge on a new King Von chain all while 6ix9ine is slandering the late rapper on social media.

Tekashi 6ix9ine was up to his usual antics yesterday when he shared a series of shocking and disrespectful posts aimed at his rival Lil Durk. The mega-troll decided to use the most abrasive piece of info he could find to hit at the rapper, which came in the form of Durk’s slain friend and confidant, King Von.

For this round, 6ix9ine sported a freshly printed t-shirt bearing Von’s image while showcasing his massive spinning troll pendant. In another photo, he was seen playing the role of a dead body lying in the streets. That reenactment photo was titled #PICKYAMAN.”

6ix9ine’s photo dump was then given a taunting caption repeating his previous statement about taking out the person who killed your friend or family member.

Strangely enough, 6ix9ine’s post arrived just a day before Lil Durk showcased his custom-made pendant made to preserve the memory of his dear friend. The Chicago kingpin’s memory tags were done by New York-based jeweler Izzy of NYC Luxury Co. Izzy also chose to show off the iced-out piece on social media. “30 pointer tennis chain” with “all VVS E color stones,” the designer wrote below his post on Instagram. The memory tags feature photos of both Durk and the late Von, with one showing capturing a moment when they both shared a stage.

The icy treat is just the latest tribute from Lil Durk to his dead homie. His most recent album, The Voice, was offered as a remembrance of the life of the Von. The project has since been certified gold and has spawned a deluxe version.

King Von died in November 2020 following a fatal shooting in Atlanta. Surveillance footage later revealed he was involved in a fight with rival Quando Rondo and his crew.

This is not the first time Tekashi has spoken on the name of Durk’s dead associates. During his visit to Chicago to promote his album Tattle Tale, 6ix9ine visited the area where one of Durk’s family members was stained. It could be concluded that the “ZAZA” rapper’s main form of promotion is to stir controversy by attacking his rivals. Sadly, this means one should not be too surprised to see more shots being taken at Durk via Von’s death.

Jay-Z Sold Majority Stake In TIDAL To Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey

Jay-Z confirmed he sold majority stake in TIDAL to Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey.

Jay-Z has made another boss move as majority ownership of Tidal has been sold to Jack Dorsey’s Square. The announcement came on Thursday that the music streaming service will now be taken over by Square, which is a point-of-sale services company co-founded by Dorsey and is set to be the next generation of services offered in a widely evolving digital business era.

The sale price for the streaming service is $297 million, and the deal will also see Jay-Z remaining in the operations of the business as a board member for the company. Jay-Z co-owns Tidal. The company, in a statement about the sale, said, “Square and TIDAL will continue to empower artists and create a more sustainable, collaborative, and beneficial music industry.”

Jay-Z also spoke about the deal, which comes on the heel of another recent move-his move to sell a part of his wine company Armand de Brignac to the global luxury brand LVMH which will open significant opportunities for global distribution and increased sales.

He tweeted that the deal was a “game-changer for many,” and asserted that the friendship with Jack Dorsey is one where he recognizes that “Jack is one of the greatest minds of our times, and our many discussions about TIDAL’s endless possibilities have made me even more inspired about its future.” He added, “this shared vision makes me even more excited to join the Square Board.”

Jack is one of the greatest minds of our times, and our many discussions about TIDAL’s endless possibilities have made me even more inspired about its future. This shared vision makes me even more excited to join the Square board.

— Mr. Carter (@sc) March 4, 2021

This partnership will be a game-changer for many. I look forward to all this new chapter has to offer!

— Mr. Carter (@sc) March 4, 2021

Jack Dorsey, on the other hand, has said that the deal began with “a simple idea which was that Tidal needed to find new ways for artists to support their work.”

He used Square as the blueprint as to what Tidal can be like- “given what Square has been able to do for sellers of all sizes and individuals through Cash App, we believe we can now work for artists to see the same success for them, and us.”

Another tweet from Dorsey says, “we’re going to start small and focus on the most crucial needs of artists and growing their fanbases.”

More from us soon. In the meantime, here’s a playlist from Jay/@sc celebrating artists and the entrepreneurial spirit: https://t.co/qg9av9Bmzt

— jack (@jack) March 4, 2021

Tidal, prior to being sold, was experiencing a plateau in spite of other streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify doing extremely well.

Jay-Z bought the business in 2015, which he marketed as for artists by artists. Rumor of the sale began in the summer of 2020 after Jay-Z and Dorsey, known widely for his success with transforming Twitter, were spotted out on a boat trip with Beyonce and others.

Mathew Knowles Calls Beyoncé & Chloe Bailey Comparisons “Insulting”

Mathew Knowles says its “insulting” when people compare Beyoncé and Chloe Bailey.

Beyonce‘s dad Matthew Knowles, appeared on Leah Henry’s Instagram show “Lemonade Stand” on Wednesday night, and he had a few things to say about people comparing his daughter to young singer Chloe Bailey. In response to Leah’s question about fans comparing the two, he said, “Are you telling me someone’s an idiot enough to compare her to Beyoncé talent-wise?” He even went on to say. “That’s actually insulting to Beyoncé.”

Some persons commenting during the Live Instagram show stated that Matthew came off as being arrogant. Other individuals commented that Chloe had a resemblance to Beyoncé and others accused him of throwing shade at the young singer.

Chloe is a part of the R&B duo Chloe X Halle with her younger sister Halle. Both sisters started performing at a young age and have also had minor acting roles. Similarly, Beyonce started performing at a very tender age. As the lead singer of the now-defunct Destiny Child, Knowles also landed major roles in movies such as Austin Powers.

Chloe and Halle began their career on YouTube by posting covers of popular songs. They caught the ears of Beyoncé, who later became their mentor and also signed them to her Parkwood Entertainment label. In 2016 they released an EP, Sugar Symphony, and in 2017 a mixtape, The Two Of Us. Their second studio album, “Ungodly Hour,” was released in 2020, which has earned them three Grammy Awards nominations.

Chloe and Halle recently took control of their Instagram account. Since then, they have been serving up thirst traps and conquering challenges, much like Chloe did with the popular #BussItChallenge. They have both shown that they are performers in their own right, something Beyonce’s fans have praised their leader for over the years.

The strained relationship between Matthew Knowles and his daughter has been documented over the years, but he has much respect and admiration for Bey.

Raffi – Goodnight Irene Lyrics

Foxes sleep in the forest
Lions sleep in the dens
Goats sleep on the mountainside
And piggies sleep in pens
Chorus:
Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene
I’ll see you in my dream
Whales sleep in the ocean

Zebras sleep on land
Hippos sleep by the riverside
And camels sleep on sand
(chorus)
Coyote sleeps in the canyon
A birdie sleeps in a tree
And when it’s time for me to rest
My bed’s the place for me
(chorus)

Disney – Somewhere Out There – An American Tail Lyrics

Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight
Someone’s thinking of me and loving me tonight

Somewhere out there someone’s saying a prayer
That we’ll find one another in that big somewhere out there

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we’re sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through

Then we’ll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we’re sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we’ll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

Vybz Kartel Issued Strong Response To Female Referencing His Son To Lizard’s Death

Vybz Kartel responds to a female on Instagram who reference his son Likkle Addi to Clive “Lizard” Williams’ death.

Social media is a fair game for everybody, and once a post is made, everyone has the go-ahead to weigh in, including celebrities. Each person is entitled to their unsolicited opinion, and Instagram user @sashiboo1 did just that when she commented on a post made by the Instagram profile representing Dancehall icon Vybz Kartel.

The post highlighted the appearance of Vybz Kartel’s son Likkle Vybz on Winford Williams’ TV show OnStage. IG user sashiboo1 took the opportunity to voice her opinion saying, “I wonder how u would feel if the same faith reach him just like what happened to Clive (lizard) williams, old time people used to say what goes around the University works in mysterious ways!”

A loyal Vybz Kartel supporter offered up a fierce clap back while hinting that the man the dancehall star is accused of killing is in hiding possibly in Cuba.

During the exchange of words, Vybz Kartel landed his response to the IG user who made mention of his son. The comment was delivered and packaged in the form of a gruesome threat in which he questioned, “wonder how u would feel if me send come shot yuh inna face in front u mada.” He continued, “any bwoy even dream dat, everting inna him yaad dead. all di baby weh just born yesterday. Stop mek internet fool yuh gyal.”

Dancehall fans grabbed a screenshot of Vybz Kartel response to the female. While some folks agreed with his strong response, some fans think he went a bit overboard by threatening to female who made the comment. “She is wrong for the comment, but he literally just threatened her and he’s behind bars awaiting an appeal so this is just foolish on his part,” one person wrote.

In 2014, Vybz Kartel was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of his former associate Clive “Lizard” Williams. Despite being in prison, the former Portmore Empire artist continues to release music and has remained active on social media. He will be eligible for parole once he has served a minimum of 35 years in prison. It is still uncertain if the profile dubbed ‘Vybz Kartel’ is being operated by him, but if not, he has a very active public relations personnel.

Kodak Black & Fiancee Mellow Rackz Expecting First Child

Kodak Black’s fiancee Mellow Rackz announces pregnancy with first child.

Kodak Black seems to be an expecting father as he shared his preferred names for a boy baby. Fans, though, are confused as to who the mother of the child is since Kodak is engaged to Florida rapper Mellow Rackz for less than three weeks. News reports suggest that the woman may not be Mellow after all but another woman. It’s been a little over two months since Kodak was released from jail after being pardoned by outgoing President Donald Trump, so the dates and days are quite shocking to fans who reacted to the news.

In the video, he can be seen eating an ice pop and saying that the baby’s mother does not agree with the names he has chosen. In the background, she could be heard saying the names he chose are ugly while suggesting a name of her own.

Kodak says, “she don’t like the name for prince…” to which the woman in the background says, “Prince no.

Kodak Black, however, says he likes the name Prince for the middle name “that’s not the name..his middle name Prince. We got King Khalid then Kiope ..so do yall like Kiope Prince Kapri? he asked his fans to help him choose a name.

The baby mother, on the other hand, suggested that the baby be called “Melly,” or should it be ‘Milli’? Which does sound like his fiancée Melly for Mellow Rackz. Kodak hilariously reacts by asking who?! “My homeboy name Milli… .it’s a K word,” he says. It sounds like he wants the baby to have a name beginning with K.

Nobody knows who the mystery woman is, but fans speculated that the baby was conceived soon after he returned from jail.

Meanwhile, the rapper seems to be in a rush to make up for lost times while in jail. He recently got engaged to Mellow Rackz and has made moves to restart his rap music journey. Earlier this week, he was successful in getting a judge to allow him to travel for work purposes, something his probation conditions previously disallowed.

Lil Nas X Exposes Tekashi 6ix9ine For Sliding In His DMs Twice

Lil Nas X shares screenshots of Tekashi 6ixine sliding into his DMs.

6ix9ine loves trolling and seems to be enjoying the publicity and free press, but this time he is getting a dose of his own medicine. Country rapper Lil Nas X surprised his fans on TikTok on Thursday when he shared a video of himself and included a screenshot of the DMs he received from the rainbow-haired rapper on Instagram.

Tekashi 6ix9ine didn’t message Nas X once, but on two separate occasions and both times, he did not get a response which probably hurts. Most of the rappers in the game right now are ignoring him. The first message was sent on October 8th last year saying, “Yo.” The second message was sent on February 16th saying, “Gonna be in ya city soon what you doing lol?”

On both occasions, Lil Nas X left the messages on read. It turns out that he decided to make the DMs public after 6ix9ine left a comment on a story on IG regarding China’s latest move to have foreign travelers get mandatory anal swabbed. 69 commented on the post saying, “Lil nas x entered the chat.”

this you ? pic.twitter.com/GBvc5Rxf8h

— nope (@LilNasX) March 4, 2021

Perhaps Nas X felt its time to put him on blast and released the DMs, and in his TikTok video, he asked his followers, “this you?” Knowing Tekashi, he will gladly accept this publicity because he doesn’t care from what angle he gets it from. He is still doing the most online to promote his new song, “ZAZA.”

Just recently, he attempted to start a beef with Cardi B, but she also totally ignored him while making it clear that she will not fall for the trap. So far, Meek Mill is the only rapper who fell into 6ix9ine’s trap, but Meek has since been trying to do damage control by firing off a letter to 69’s attorney to remove him from the “ZAZA” music video.

Jethro Tull – Back Door Angels Lyrics

In and out of the front door,
Ran twelve back-door angels.
Their hair was a golden-brown
They didn’t see me wink my eye.
‘Tis said they put we men to sleep
With just a whisper,
And touch the heads of dying dogs
And make them linger.
They carry their candles high
And they light the dark hours.
And sweep all the country clean
With pressed and scented wild-flowers.

They grow all their roses red,
And paint our skies blue
Drop one penny in every second bowl

Make half the beggars lose,
Why do the faithful have such a will
To believe in something?

And call it the name they choose,
Having chosen nothing.

Think I’ll sit down and invent some fool
Some Grand Court Jester.
And next time the die is cast,
He’ll throw a six or two.
In and out of the back-door ran
One front-door angel,
Her hair was a golden-brown
She smiled and I think she winked her eye.

Dancehall Artist Rytikal Gun Case Heads To Trial, Denied Bail

Rytikal’s case is heading to trial as a judge denied the entertainer bond.

The legal woes of dancehall artist Rytikal further intensified today after he was denied bail when he appeared in the virtual Gun court via Zoom. The artiste, real name Ryan McFarlane, was denied bail and further remanded until March 24, 2021.

The “Cookie Jar “entertainer was charged earlier this year for illegal possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition. Based on reports, the police were on patrol in the Eight Miles Bay area of St. Andrews on January 28, 2021, when Rytikal was seen acting suspiciously.

Cops questioned and searched Rytikal’s vehicle, where they found a Taurus .380 pistol along with 12 rounds of ammunition were found. He reportedly told the police officers that the weapon was a prop for a music video.

Rytikal joins a slew of other dancehall acts who have found themselves on the wrong side of the law recently. Dancehall artiste Tommy Lee Sparta is also facing gun and ammunition charges and is scheduled to appear in court on March 24, 2021. George Nooks is also due to appear in court for cocaine charges.

At the moment, Sean Storm, Laden, Ninja Man, and Vybz Kartel are some of the dancehall artists currently serving time behind bars. Rytikal is a member of the Eastsyde musical outfit, which also boasts one of Jamaica’s biggest dancehall acts, Skillibeng. Prior to being arrested and detained, the singer had teamed up with Atlantic Records signee Kranium for “Block Traffic” and also announced the arrival of a full-length EP.

Danse Macabre – Tristesse Lyrics

“® Writing poetry in the fields of Bretagne ¯ expresses a wish that never
happened. The sentence came to me when being on tour with my band. We were
crossing the land of Bretagne and the landscape with it’s woods and menhirs
seemed so inviting. Visions of Celtic traditions and legends immediately came to
mind and the unreachable within reach. Due to a busy schedule it was impossible
to stop and really taste the atmosphere. It always has been my experience that
events that ALMOST took place are the most inspiring for reality had no grip on
the whole. This way a strange kind of magic, a dreamworld even, can remain
intact.”

Blood red skies like a messenger of doom
Skeletons on parade in villages on fire
Divine maidens suffering from the plague
Apocalypse my friend put these cities into dust

Dust on coffin lits
Tales never told
Citizens living in cages of glass
Writing poetry in the fields of bretagne

But hear the cries of a distant battle

Cardinals in decay and Gods who failed everywhere
Nero’s fiddle distuned, Rome into flames

With wings wide spread I wish to fly
Like an eagle embracing the sky
Dying during a final flight
Oh deliver me from life

Plundering savages drunk with bloodlust
Knights in armour now long vanished

Jesters holding the crown
Noblesse fading away
Noblesses fading

Blood red skies like a messenger of doom
Skeletons on parade in villages on fire
Divine maidens suffering from the plague
Apocalypse my friend put these cities into dust

Dust on coffin lits
Tales never told
Citizens living in cages of glass

Writing poetry in the fields of Bretagne
But hear the cries of a distant battle

Cardinals in decay
Gods who failed everywhere
Gods who failed…
TRISTESSE!

Eric Clapton – Low Down Lyrics

Low down, low down dirty shame
Low down, low down dirty shame
I’ve had nothing but the blues
Since I heard your name

No more, no more blues today
No more, no more blues today
I’ve been fond of you baby
Had me crying everyday

I’ve been waiting, waiting so long for you
Waiting, waiting so long for you
It was good news sometimes
Sometimes, it was bad news

Low down, low down dirty shame
Low down, low down dirty shame
I’ve had nothing but the blues
Since I heard your name

I’ve been crying, crying, crying all night long
Crying, crying all night long
I had nothing but the blues
Since you came along

Low down, low down dirty shame
Low down, low down dirty shame

Tory Lanez Excited About Dropping Same Day As Drake: “Great Day For Music”

Tory Lanez says dropping new music the same day as Drake is a “great day for music.”

Drake and Tory Lanez are both set to release albums on the same day. To some, this would be a frightening moment to be dropping on the same day as one of the world’s highest-selling rappers. However, the 5’3″ Lanez is focusing on the positive, sighting a wonderful day for music. While many have tried to pit the two Toronto natives against each other, no actual beef has ever been publicly recognized.

Tory Lanez recently posted to his Twitter account, saying, “Me and @drake both dropping on the same day… great day for music.” Fans are having mixed reactions to the news, with many leaning towards Drake overshadowing the “Luv” rapper. Internet users jeered at Lanez’s announcement with comments like, “Why is he happy his album not gonna get listened to.” Much like his Umbrella music brand, his faithful fans had him covered and showed their full support for the daunting task on Friday.

Me and @drake both dropping on the same day ??…. great day for music .

— Tory Lanez (@torylanez) March 4, 2021

Yes yes . Swallowed by models … for my music being so good …. yes yes great day .

— Tory Lanez (@torylanez) March 4, 2021

Even though the two have gained international recognition, Drake still maintains a more prominent position in the public spotlight. To some fans, Tory Lanez is seen as a younger brother always trying to outshine his older and more experienced sibling. Despite numerous memes about his size and stature, Tory Lanez is no joke to music, having released countless hits over the years.

However, he remains optimistic announcing the release of his R&B Capsule PLAYBOY tonight at midnight. The capsule will feature 12 songs, including the lead single “Feels” with Chris Brown, which has almost 12 million Youtube views.

Tory has said this project is his most vulnerable to date, and the themes predominantly surround heartbreak, while his previous R&B tracks were more about vibes and catchy melodies. Drake has been teasing the release of his Certified Lover Boy album for nearly two years, and with delays still in play for that one, he is now offering a filler EP titled Scary Hours. Champaignpapi has not provided many details surrounding that one but fans are already excited for hits release.

A Twitter fan delighted with the good news of the Two Canadian superstars has made it clear that there will only be one winner of the new music Friday. “Friday bout to be a party,” the Twitter user wrote.

Dancehall Veteran Mr. G Speak Out Against “Gunman” Image Amid Artists Arrests

Dancehall artiste/producer Mr. G has recently expressed his disdain for the current violent musical output from young entertainers plying their trade both locally and internationally.

It was a no-nonsense approach from the man formerly known as Goofy, who released a video calling for the entertainers who boast of their gang allegiances to choose whether they desire to be entertainers are thugs. It is clear that the “Buff Bay” deejay is not of the sentiment that both should coincidence.

“Everyman a come inna music a portray this gunman image. Them have the most gunman friend,” he highlighted. “If a man like gun so much why a man never apply fi the police or the army.”

Mr. G’s comments arrive hot on the heels of the arrest of upcoming EastSyde entertainer Rytikal on January 28, 2021. Classified as one of the most talented young entertainers to have caught the public’s attention in 2020, Rytikal seemed poised for greatness. His recent collaboration with Atlantic Records signee Kranium has been regarded as just the tip of what he could accomplish for 2021. Yet, the 25-year-old deejay is steering down years of prison time for the c possession of firearm and ammunition. Rytikal’s arrest was preceded by those of Tommy Lee and Laden, who were both held and slapped with similar charges surrounding possession of an unlicensed firearm.

“It don’t look good wa the man dem a do. Every minute you hear say artiste gone a jail. Every minute you hear say artiste get hold with gun,” said Mr. G, before highlighting the work done by the genre’s forerunners to establish dancehall as something of substance.

“The man dem need fi stop it breda. You know how much years it take fi we as some foundation artiste…artiste inna my era 90s coming right up to the 2000s, 80s, the 70s. You know how hard we affi work fi the people dem stop call the music ol’ dutty boy music. So that people uptown, downtown and ‘middle-town’ can accept it.” The deejay preached.

Still, there have been critics who have contested the call for more peaceful lyrics from entertainers, citing legendary acts such as Ninjaman and Bounty Killer as pioneers of the style. As for Goofy, some of his most notable tracks are filled with comical satire, with most of his concepts centered around females. As a producer, Mr. G has clung to the more refined and socially acceptable reggae, producing hits for big-name dancehall acts like Chris Martin, Romain Virgo, Jesse Royal, among others.

“If a man know say him want fi come inna music fi tun gunman, don’t come inna music. Just stay pon the road and do wa you affi do,” was the firm recommended handed down by Mr. G.

He concluded, “The man dem a mash up the business, me no like it.”

What is your stance on the current musical output from our young entertainers?

DaniLeigh Barely Misses Robbery Outside Beverly Hills Eatery

DaniLeigh was outside of a restaurant in Beverly Hills when a brazen robbery took place.

The Dominican singer should be counting her lucky stars after she missed being included in a brazen daylight robbery and shooting by only seconds. The element of ‘time’ played a key role in the incident, which took place just outside of the famous Beverly Hills eatery, Il Pastaio. The armed thugs, a total of 3 men, apparently had their eyes set on a $500,000 Richard Mille watch a diner was wearing. They made away with the lavish timepiece after a struggle with its owner. Sadly, during the struggle, a woman was shot in the leg by one of the 3-4 bullets fired.

Witnesses at the crime scene told TMZ that the female who was injured was having lunch with her partner next to the gentleman who was robbed. The actual identities of the victims have not yet been released to the public, as police work to apprehend the men who carried out the daring robbery.

Beverly Hills, more specifically the restaurant in question, is known for its influx of the rich and famous, which would explain why DaBaby’s former girlfriend stopping by. The “Levi High” singer had teamed up with Dababy to pull off a similar robbery in their music video, but this may have been an eye-opening experience beyond the realms of show biz. Still, there have not been any recent posts from DaniLeigh‘s Twitter account, which has now left concerned fans worrying about just how she is currently holding up.

SPEAK – Sa nu renunti

[Intro:]
La la la
La la la la la
La la la
La la la

“Sa nu renunti” versuri aici:

In zilele fara culoare, cand nu sunt bun de nimic
Mi-aduc aminte ce-mi spunea mama de mic
Cum soarele rasare noaptea, asa eu tre’ sa ma ridic
Mi-aduc aminte ce-mi spunea mama de mic.

Tu sa nu, sa nu, sa nu renunti
Tu sa nu, sa nu, sa nu renunti

Oare am ales correct ca am plecat de-acasa?
Ca am lasat cheia de la gat? Si-am plecat in viata?
Oare o sa reusesc sa nu cad in plasa?
(Oare? Oare?) Acum ori niciodata.
Hai, sunt pregatit de ce-i mai rau,
Trag cu dintii cand altii nu au niciun Dumnezeu
Ori trag de mine si altii doar ca sa faca un leu.
(Oare? Oare?) Oare o sa reusesc mereu?

Da viata anilor, nu ani vietii
Tre’ sa-ti revii, sa muti muntii
Asculta doar vocea ta de copil

Nu-ti amaneta sufletul lumii
Oricat de greu ar parea, gasesti calea
Asculta doar vocea ta de copil.

In zilele fara culoare, cand nu sunt bun de nimic
Mi-aduc aminte ce-mi spunea mama de mic
Cum soarele rasare noaptea, asa eu tre’ sa ma ridic
Mi-aduc aminte ce-mi spunea mama de mic.

Tu sa nu, sa nu, sa nu renunti
Tu sa nu, sa nu, sa nu renunti

Theo Rose, What’s Up – Vreau Acasa

[Refren:]
Vreau acasa langa mama
Unde nimic nu durea
Unde nici plaoie, nici vant,
Nicio furtuna nu lovea
Vreau acasa langa tata
Care mereu imi spunea
Ai grija printre straini ca lumea-i grea

La mine, mai jos pe strada sta un pusti de paispe ani
Au plecat ma’sa si tac’su de cand avea vreo doi ani
Ii mai vede doar pe facebook, si pe Instagram
[?] dar cu ce? Ca nu sunt bani.
Si mai plange cateodata cand e singur
Dor de mama si de tata mai tot timpul
Ar face orice sa-i intoarca de-ar fi simplu
Povestea lui imi aminteste acum

[Refren:]
Vreau acasa langa mama
Unde nimic nu durea
Unde nici plaoie, nici vant,
Nicio furtuna nu lovea
Vreau acasa langa tata
Care mereu imi spunea
Ai grija printre straini ca lumea-i rea

[Bridge:]
Vreau acasa, vreau acasa
Vreau acasa langa mama
Unde nimic nu durea.

Fast forward sase ani, pustiu-are douazeci acum
L-a tinut ma’sa in scoala, pustiu si-a vazut de drum
Anul doi la facultate, are un job part-time
Are si-o fata cuminte, totul pare super fain
Ai lui nu s-au intors, sunt inca departe
Si se tot roaga sa-i aduca mai aproape
Sistemul nostrum nu uneste, ne desparte
Povestea lui imi aminteste acum

[Refren:]
Vreau acasa langa mama
Unde nimic nu durea
Unde nici plaoie, nici vant,
Nicio furtuna nu lovea
Vreau acasa langa tata
Care mereu imi spunea
Ai grija printre straini ca lumea-i rea

[Bridge:]
Vreau acasa, vreau acasa
Vreau acasa langa mama
Unde nimic nu durea.
