Guyanese Songstress Timeka Marshall and Jamaican Dancehall Reggae artist Busy Signal are tearing up the charts with fresh out the oven 'Doggy Style'!
Collaborating with the artistes to produce this mega tune was Major Lazer, a musical project by DJ/Producer Diplo. This particular mastermind has worked with the likes of Beyonce, J. Cole and No Doubt among others.
With hot, saucy lyrics combined with the sounds of the So Shifty Mix, Timeka and Busy Signal are sure to create havoc whether on the street corners, the clubs or live concerts.
The song had hit YouTube last week and generated quite a buzz as several persons took to their Facebook pages, reposting the audio and as observed, 'Doggy Style' has been getting nothing but great feedback. Fans have even been asking about the release of a video but this is yet to be determined.
The two got together in 2009 and produced 'Feel Fah' which rocked the charts. It is anticipated that 'Doggy Style' will outdo the previous collaboration.
Marshall had been busy in the studio during 2012 with productions such as 'Kisses Softly', 'Come Over' featuring Konshens and more recently 'Undercover Lover'. She has come a long way and worked with some of the biggest names in the industry such as Beenie Man, Kes the Band and Peetah Morgan.
Meanwhile, Busy Signal's album, Reggae Music Again, which was released in April 2012, was placed at number seven on Welcome to the top 25 albums of 2012, a chart compiled by music pundits at BBC Music. According to a release from the station, the table is based on votes from “a wide selection of BBC Music critics, DJs, and presenters from Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio 3, Radio 1Xtra, 6 Music, BBC Scotland and BBC Ulster”.
Guyanese overseas and foreigners who have never gotten the opportunity to experience Jamzone may finally be able to do so as organizers are seriously looking at the prospects of taking Jamzone international!
Chief Executive Officers of local entertainment giant Hits and Jams, Rawle Ferguson and Kerwin Bollers, are currently in talks with promoters from New York City, Miami, Canada and England to take Guyana’s biggest event to these parts.
Of course, these will have to be hosted at different time periods throughout 2013 and our local supporters will not be disappointed as a result of this massive extension. Jamzone summer break will be hosted in Guyana during its usual dates with a full line up of great acts and events.
By taking the product outside the local market, Hits and Jams believe that our country will be promoted on a higher level and the goal of broadening the tourism arena will eventually be reached.
In the startup period of the business, the small team aimed to create a beach atmosphere and focused their energies on doing just that for their first attempt at Jamzone Summer Break in 2000.
Now, more than a decade later, Jamzone has moved from a simple one day beach affair to a week-long (and soon to be two week long) string of events, ranging from International Pageants to Jazz Festivals. International artistes have touched these shores to perform at concerts featured for Jamzone and today, Hits and Jams is highly recognized for the achievement of Jamzone.
The Hits and Jams Entertainment Group regrets to inform the public that the 'Unforgettable II'Concert which was slated for December 26 has been postponed until next year due to time constraints after headlining act, Chris Brown, withdrew his performance.
Plans for the concert, which was to be hosted at the Guyana National Stadium on Boxing Day, were pending after the R&B Superstar’s management team notified the promoters that Brown will no longer be performing in Guyana.
As a result, the HJ team was dashed into negotiations with other international acts since a substandard replacement was not wanted. However, due to inadequate time to lay out agreements and contracts, the body was forced to postpone the concert.
With a year to organize 'Unforgettable II’, now slated for December 26, 2013, Hits and Jams promises its supporters to make the event a grand one.
The Hits and Jams Entertainment Group regrets to inform the public that the Management of International Artiste Chris Brown has decided to pull the artiste from his performance in Guyana which was scheduled for Boxing Day, December 26, 2012 at the Guyana National Stadium.
Chris Brown's Management team expressed concerns over recent media reports about protests over the artiste's intended visit to Guyana and his performance here. The management team in a correspondence to HJ Entertainment said they do not feel comfortable at this stage allowing the
multi award winning singer to come to Guyana as they have been following reports in the local and international press about the protests over his Guyana appearance.
Over the weekend, the singer's performance in Europe was smeared with widespread protests. His team appears to be making efforts to avoid similar protests. His management team has indicated that they remain interested in having the singer perform in Guyana but just not at this time under the current circumstances.
Hits and Jams Entertainment intends to still host the "Unforgettable II" show on December 26 but with a different headline act. Already negotiations have started with a number of leading American R&B artistes and we will keep the media and the public up-to-date with the developments.
In the past years we've seen and heard Timeka Marshall alone and with other regional acts and then a brief silence followed but at present she's teamed up with Jamaican sensation Konshens and the combination is electrifying.
Fans can look out for the new projects such as the Under Cover lady Video with a prequel to follow. It tells the all too familiar reality story for some women who have played the secret role of mistresses... The songs tells the story of a woman being tired f being the best kept secret while the video contradicts the message where an exotic dancer is heartbroken...the rest is to be seen in the prequel coming soon.
But that's just the tip of the ice berg in the world of Timeka as she's also got a few new songs such as the dancehall Caribbean up tempo Si (see) How MI Hot on the Love Bug rhythm by producers Washroom entertainment out of Jamaica. That song is already tearing up the hot 97 airwaves in New York. Then she has a song titled 'I'll be there for you' on the focus rhythm, Kisses softly on the 9.58 rhythm, Steeling feeling on the Sweet ride rhythm and the new single titled 'Come over' produced by the subkonshus label. The later has been doing great on various charts and the video shoot is set for Timeka's return to Jamaica. The director for that video is Gareth Cobran whose work with Timeka in the past include Feel fah and Secretes/ Hush with Timeka and Peeth Morgan.
As the year draws to a close and the New Year dawns Timeka is working to release several videos that will certainly leave tongues wagging with requests for more.
What started out as a by chance entry into the GTT Jingle competition in 2006 and a follow up release of the separate song has come full circle for Timeka Marhall. This Guyanese eye candy with countless releases to her name is not just in the music for singing but also is a writer who has co-wrote hits not just for herself. Her collaborative sojourns have seen her pairing up with Busy signal, Peetah Morgan and Skinny Fabulous. And word is she's already done recording collaborations with Romain Virgo, Laza Morgan of 'one by one' fame, D'Major and Konshens.
The six years ride thus far in the industry has been good for me and I know for a fact that its definitely been about growth... I've grown and the name as well as the accomplishments has been many as I've been able to take kind the council the years from producers and artistes alike that I've encountered. She has worked in Jamaica, Barbados, Antigua, Canada, the USA and Trinidad.
Ultimately Timeka is based in Jamaica these days and as she progresses she says 'Sky is the limit not just for me but for the work I do.
Last Friday night, Everest Ground quaked beneath eight thousand dancing feet at Hits and Jams' fourth 'All Black' mega-party. It would be an understatement to say the event was successful. The most outrageous, creative and eye-catching black outfits were on display that night. People arrived in cliques. Some even came by the busloads from every corner of the country to experience this truly remarkable event.
The DJs were probably the most popular people of the night. They controlled the party and the crowd with the precision of a classical music conductor directing an orchestra of thousands. No matter what they played, the crowd danced. It was an amazing thing to see.
There were no known incidents. Everyone went to have fun and they did just that.
Hits and Jams would like to thank all those who attended the 'Black in Imax' party. Your support has inspired the team to make the next 'Black' party an even greater event. If you missed this one, there's always next year.

Scores of hip-hop and rap lovers converged at the Guyana National Stadium for Jamzone’s International Night Super Concert featuring Macka Diamond, Spice, Elephant Man and the big Maybach Music Boss himself, Rick Ross.
Though, the concert was dubbed "International Night" the only international performer there was Rick Ross. (And maybe I can include the Guyanese artistes who live and record music overseas for good measure). The concert started with our very own emerging local rappers. The winners of the HJ Rick Ross competition – Blaze Antonio and Adijay - got their five minutes of fame and an opportunity to show Guyanese why they won the competition in the first place. Other rappers, Jay Anderson, Gialiani and a young man going by the name of "Black Cotton" also did their bit, showcasing their artistic styles and colourful lyrics. No doubt, Guyana has an excellent cluster of very talented and impressive young rappers.
On the road to the climax, we shifted from rap to dancehall and welcomed our Jamaican neighbours to the stage. First up was Miss Money O, Macka Diamond. She might seem a little aged and she might have looked like a hot mess with that outfit but she definitely knows how to hold a crowd. She belted out hits such as "Bun Him", "Money O", "Lexus and Benz", "Hula Hoop" and "Robbery". She jumped off of the stage onto the platform below and invited a young lady to join her. Miss Pink hair took over the microphone and started to sing "Bun Him" in full Macka Diamond style, movements and all. We have our very own Macka Diamond in Guyana, who knew?!
Macka make way for Spice. Spice is name and nature, she brought with her the pizzazz and vulgarity that she is most commonly known for. Her black cat suit did not restrict her from gyrating her body. She sang for the patrons "Jim Screechie", "Hot Patty Wine", ‘Fight Over Man" and Not My Fault". She paid homage to her fellow Jamaican artistes currently behind bars, namely Vybz Kartel, Busy Signal and Buju Banton". The highlight of her performance came when she was tamed by the young man she invited on stage; she asked him to 'give it to her' like she’s never gotten it before and ... 'he didn’t spoil her, she got it good.
'The Energy Man, Elephant Man was the final performer to grace the stage before the main act of the evening. Energy! Energy! Energy! And more energy! Between jumping on the speaker box, dissing one of his entourage members and dancing with his youngest child, Elephant man dished out his very famous hits such as "Pon De River", "Nuh Linga", "Bun Bad Mind", Over Di Wall" and "Willie Bounce".
These performances all created the hype needed for the climax of the concert. The main reason many persons were at the Stadium in the first place was introduced. He came on stage to shouts and screams from fans –both men and women – who were all very happy to finally see him in Guyana. Mr. Huh didn’t disappoint. Rick Rozay’s performance was everything. Many have been singing these songs for months but to finally hear them from the Boss himself was beyond epic. He belted out tracks such as "Aston Martin Music", "Hustlin", "MMG Untouchable", "Stay Schemin’", "Yella Diamonds", "Holy Ghost" and "Im A Boss" to name a few. The Maybach Music Boss even said "this is my first time here but I'm certain it won't be the last time Guyana". Should we look out for him again, sometime soon?! I know many persons would like that. Rick Ross was definitely the "Boss" of the show. A class act!
Kudos to Hits & Jams for putting this together and praise Jesus, Rick Ross didn’t get sick again this time.
