Lloyd Drops Sultry, Feel Good Visual For “Excited”

“Having an all around good time to music is a family pastime. Whether we were driving to New Orleans for the summer, hanging out with friends at the skating rink, at the park for a bbq, or out on a date, there was one common denominator. Music. It was the soundtrack to some of my life’s most memorable moments. My hope is that “Excited”, a song inspired by my love for skating, dancing, and live music, will be played during those same memorable moments in the lives of others. So Tie up your skates real tight, grab a partner, and get off the wall!” –Lloyd

VYBZ Kartel Protege Vanessa Bling Gets To The Money In “10 Bags” Video

En-Treeg Records and OuttaSpace Entertainment are proud to announce the release of Vanessa Bling‘s most intimate and personal project to date. Released today, Still Standing is a collection of six tracks that embodies every facet of who the artist formerly known as Gaza Slim has grown into: a determined business woman, a vulnerable lover and above all else, a survivor. Click here to listen to Still Standing. Along with the new EP, Vanessa Bling delivers the visual for the project’s first single, “10 Bags.” The high energy video showcases Vanessa as various interpretations of the tough talking boss chick whose diceptively sweet vocals flow over the “Bookshelf” riddim inspired track before demanding in no uncertain term that her opposition “run her check.” [Click here to watch “10 Bags.”] With songs like the melow, inspirational “Broken Heart” and the upbeat global vibes of  “What To Do” standing in sharp contrast with the single, Still Standing paints a complete picture of who Vanessa Bling has become over the course for the last few years. In 2011, just months after her mentor Vybz Kartel‘s single “Clarks” catapulted Vanessa Bling and fellow newcomer Popcaan onto international airwaves, the Kingston native found herself embroiled in a high-profile legal ordeal that would take nearly three years to resolve. Standing accused of “perverting the court of justice” or interfering in Vybz Kartel’s murder trial, Vanessa would spend a total of six weeks between Kingston’s Central Village Police Station and the Fort Augusta Adult Correctional Facility before finally being granted bail. For the next three years, she found herself unable to travel and barely wanting to record music. Once the charges were released in 2014, Vanessa Bling set out her mind to do whatever it takes to regain her positionon the international stage. Still Standing makes that return official.
