Spice is back with her latest video, her cut on the the Tun Up Tun Up riddim. Spice extols the virtue of her body especially her well it’s Spice you should know what she is talking about. Spice in my opinion is important to the landscape of not only dancehall but music, instead of hiding her boasting like other artists (cough Rihanna) she puts it all out there, so to speak.
The riddim immortalised by the wicked Cham cut, still has burn and Spice rides the Dave Kelly production salaciously.
R Kelly may be going through his Sam Cooke phase at the moment (nothing wrong with that) but sometimes the Pied Piper of R and B can’t help himself but dabble in a bit of dancehall and reggae. One of our favourite warm up songs is him, Sean (pre Mohawk) Paul and Akon teaming up on Slow Wine (Are you from an Island Girl?). Anyway it’s fair to say that he has previous so we were excited to hear his new song Memories has a one drop tilt and Peter Tosh guitar lick to it. The song is fantastic and captures R Kelly’s genius song writing and melodies. this may be a song about lament but it will have you singing the chorus and the gun shots parts all day.
