Madness Again | King Bubba FM | Crop Over 2018

0 comments

King Bubba FM is on fire for Crop Over 2018. He has taken control of the Fire Torch Riddim with a selection entitled "Madness Again". Fans of King Bubba are ecstatic with this vibe that is destined to 'tun-up' fetes for Crop Over.

King Bubba has infused much excitement in the vibe and created a 'madness hook' that will bode well for the notoriety of this song... if you like to shell-down fetes then all that remains is to 'leave the place in madness'.

Possessed | Boyzie | Grenada's Spice Mas 2018

0 comments

The Soca cauldron is brewing some excitement in the Spice Isle with the release of "Possessed" by reigning Soca Monarch Jalson "Boyzie" Olive. "Possessed" was released yesterday and already has a combined YouTube views close to 40K. That means the song is on fire!

The online comments show that there is much love for the music release but then again the 'haters' are also digging in with negative comments. The controversy can only mean that Boyzie has touched a nerve that causing the Soca cauldron to percolate with anticipation for the upcoming competition.

If you are a fan or just someone who can't come to terms with the loaded testosterone Soca singing machine aka "Boyzie" then we want to hear from you. Why do you love the song and if not what is it about the release that you despise? We want to know!
