Shenseea Reflects On Humble Beginnings From Farm Life To Star Life

Shenseea is opening up about her journey from living a humble farm life to becoming a dancehall superstar.

Shenseea has come a long way in her music career, but the dancehall star came from humble beginnings. In a new interview with Jamaican personality Yendi Phillipps, Shenseea revealed that she has not only seen the remnants of classism in Jamaica, but she has also lived it. From farm girl to star girl, Jamaica’s sweetheart has achieved the unthinkable against all odds.

Shenseea is a St. Elizabeth native, but she migrated to Kingston just three years after her birth. Growing up, she would go back and forth between the city and her hometown, where she spent time with her grandmother. The famed dancehall superstar recalls that her younger years involved helping her grandma with her family’s farm. They cultivated a number of crops from gungo peas, okra, and pimento to cannabis. The Jamaican it girl remembers how she even used to help feed the pigs – a memory she reminisced about fondly.

It’s been five years since Shenseea has entered motherhood, and the experience has allowed her to empathize with her mother’s sacrifices in a way like never before. She admitted that she grew closer to her mother later in life because she was raised away from her. As a child, Shenseea would only get to see her mom every two weeks on the weekend because work kept her away from the family. She grew up with her aunt, who she says she appreciates because she instilled a lot of valuable principles in her. However, as for her mom, she eventually became accustomed to not having her around.

Shenseea’s mother was a domestic worker in upscale communities, which is something the dancehall artiste said she never fully understood the gravity of until recently. Her mom passed away suddenly earlier this year, and her tragic departure took a monumental toll on the singer. What we didn’t know, which the dancehall star revealed she never spoke about before, is that growing up, she didn’t have much, and her mother would bring her hand-me-downs from the well-off family she worked with.

Unfortunately, Shenseea thinks her time with her mom was cut short because she was finally getting to know her. In her personal experience, Shenseea, who is now a member of that high-class society, has witnessed these domestic workers in her community heading home for the weekend struggling with heavy bags. It was then that she really resonated with what her mother was sacrificing for so many years. In retrospect, she says it made her respect her mother so much more, and the thought of what she went through for her family still breaks her heart to this day.

The “Blessed” singer recently learned that her mother was told she wouldn’t have more kids, so she was basically a medical marvel. She admitted that she’s not entirely sure that she’s handling her mother’s death well. It was the first time in her life that she had suffered such a major loss, and it was the woman who brought her here. “I felt like this was the end of my career. I told my team I don’t know how I’m gonna get up. I’ve never been through this before. This is the hardest thing I’ve ever dealt with in my life,” Shenseea recalls saying after her mother’s untimely death.

While she didn’t grow up with a dad, the ShenYeng leader was never incomplete because, according to her, her mom was her “real parry” and best friend. As for how it changed her, the dancehall singer says she found herself showing more appreciation and affection. She gives more hugs now, and she doesn’t take people or time for granted. “Being at peace is one of the most important things to me right now,” she said with conviction. Shenseea says she finds herself praying for her mom’s spirit these days so she, too, can be at peace.

Earl Thomas Conley – Your Love’s On The Line Lyrics

You’ve never cheated, you’ve never lied
You’ve never had feelin’s that you’ve had to hide
For she’s got you thinkin’ of somethin’
So different tonight

It’s too late to worry what’s right or what’s wrong
And you’re a little too crazy to leave it alone
When you’re lookin’ at somethin’
That is too good to push it aside

Boy, she’s got your head in the clouds
And your heart in a bind
So how come you’re feelin’ so proud
When your love’s on the line?

You still think your first love’s the best in your life
When you know you should hurry, but you can’t say goodbye

And you know you can’t go back
And feel like you’re where you belong

Now the sweet taste of freedom is hard to control
When the touch of a woman’s so tender to hold
She won’t even let you remember
How long you’ve been gone

Boy, you’ve got your head in the clouds
And your heart in a bind
So how come you’re feelin’ so proud
When your love’s on the line?

Yeah you’ve got your head in the clouds
And your heart in a bind
So how come you’re feelin’ so proud
When your love’s on the line?

Head Cat – Fool’s Paradise Lyrics

You took me up to heaven, when you took me in your arms.
I was dazzled by your kisses, blinded by your charms.
I was lost in a fool’s paradise.
Good and lost in a fool’s paradise.

When you told me that you loved me, I gave my heart to
you.
And I wondered if there could be any truth in love so
new.
I was lost in a fools paradise.
Good and lost in a fool’s paradise.

The whole world was my kingdom
and your love the gem in my crown.
Then I saw you glance at a new romance
and my love came tumbling down.

Well you treat me kinda coolish and may never let me know
That you think I’m being fooling because I love you so
I’ll still get lost in a fool’s paradise.
Lost with you in a fool’s paradise.

Alex Ubago – El Unico Habitante Lyrics

Quiero ser el único habitante
En tu corazón de cada parte
Quiero que me cures las heridas
Y que todo sea como antes
Ya no siento es que aunque no entienda
No puedo creer que te me escapes
Llevo la melancolía a cuestas
Y en cada ciudad salgo a buscarte

Pero no te encuentro nunca
Ni en los bares ni en el puerto
Dicen que es mejor no mirar atrás
Pero a veces es difícil olvidar

Quiero ser el único habitante
En tu corazón y en cada parte
Quiero ser la salsa de tu vida

Y la mía quiero regalarte
Porque si no estas ya no amanece
Porque eres algo tan importante
Y porque por mucho que me esfuerce
No voy a cansarme de mirarte

Pero no te encuentro nunca
Ni en los bares ni en el puerto
Dicen que es mejor no mirar atrás
Pero a veces es difícil olvidar

Y aunque no te encuentro nunca
Ni en los bares ni en el puerto
Y aunque dicen que es mejor evitar mirar atrás
Me resulta tan difícil olvidar

Shin Hye Sung – You Are Lyrics

이른 새벽 저 안개들 사이로 꺼지지 않은 가로등 빛
조금 지나 꺼지는 가로등 빛 그 후로 내게 비춰지는 따스한 햇빛 Oh

You Are 너도 그래
잠에서 깬 아침 풍경에 눈 비비며 일어나겠지
You Are 근데 말야
나 혼자만 생각하겠지 너도 이러는진 모르지 Oh

출근길에 난 생각에 잠기다 길 건너는 걸 잊기도 해
바쁜 일에 정신이 없을 때도 내 마음속에 자리 잡은 너란 사람 Oh

You Are 너도 그래
멍하게만 서 있다가도 하던 일도 잊고 그러고 해
You Are 나는 그래
시간이 날 지나갔어도 그때 그날에 난 멈춰져 Oh

아직도 추억에 잠겨 허우적대다 하루를 힘들게 마치는 나
생각하기가 싫어도 생각이 나
너와 나 함께한 그때 그날 그 시간

You Are 그대로니
내게 했던 말투 표정 다 전부 다 그대로인 거니
You Are 날 떠나고
물어보고 싶은 한마디 가끔 나를 생각하는지 Oh

You Are
You Are
You Are

Shin Hye Sung – Beautiful Lyrics

마음을 적어 몇 번을 접어
별말도 없는 편지를 주고
하루가 온통 기다림으로
울다가 웃었던 기억 어렴풋이

꿈이었을까
모든 게 다 두근거리던
네 얼굴이 아른거리다
흩어져 버린다
참 아름다웠어, 그땐

좋은 걸 보고, 좋은 걸 듣고
종일을 걷다 집에 오던 길
그 모든 게 다 너 때문인 걸
그때는 뭐가 그렇게 좋았었니

꿈이었을까
모든 게 다 두근거리던
네 얼굴이 아른거리다
흩어져 버린다
참 아름다웠어

떠나갈 듯이 울다가 잠든 밤에
스치던 아픈 기억
내 청춘의 조각으로 남아

Grendel – Fall Lyrics

What we're witnessing, of course, is the… death of permanence
A new society is being created around us, being created from the broken pieces of today
And those who people that society are going to live in a… a very different world

Changes bombard our nervous systems; clambering for decisions
New values, new technologies, flood into our mind

The pressure of fast change forces us to question all we have been taught

'Future shock' results from too much change, in too short a time
The disposability of products, and people…
Thousands of people are alive today only because they carry, inside of them, electronic devices — plastic bugs

The era of the disposable body

John Denver – Perhaps Love Lyrics

Songwriters: Denver, John;

Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm it exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm and in those times of trouble
When you are most alone the memory of love will bring you home

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door it invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more and even if you lose yourself
And don’t know what to do the memory of love will see you through

Oh, love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel for some a way of living
For some a way to feel and some say love is holding on
And some say letting go, and some say love is everything
And some say they don’t know

Perhaps love is like the ocean full of conflict, full of change
Like a fire when its cold outside or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever and all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you

Jamie Rivera – Kuya Pedro Lyrics

Ang pagtulong sa kapwa’y pagmamahal sa Diyos
Ang taong tapat sa Diyos umiibig ng taos
Pananampalataya sa ama’y binubunyi
Ganyan ang Kuya Pedro ko, alagad na tutuo.

Di ka niya iiwan sa panahon ng pighati
Huwaran ng kabataan, larawan ng katapangan
kaibigang tunay na nag-alay nang buhay
yan nga ang kuya Pedro ko, kaibigang tutuo.

[Refrain:]
Pinag-pala ka Kuya Pedro, na magturo sa buong mundo

Ng pagmamahal sa Diyos ,ng pagibig niyang lubos
Kuya Pedro kami’y turuan mo

May Pagibig sa kapwa san man mapunta
Tumutulong sa tao di man niya ito kilala
At kapayapaan ang siyang minimithi
Siya nga ang kuya pedro ko, Kapatid na totoo.

[Refrain x2]

[Coda:]
Kuya Pedro kami’y turuan mo.
Kuya Pedro kami’y tulungan mo.

Popcaan Is The New Face Of Dancehall, Says Bounty Killer

Bounty Killer crowns Popcaan the new face of dancehall genre.

As dancehall strives to solidify its place in world music, Unruly deejay Popcaan has opened doors that have many calling him the face of dancehall today. Popcaan’s music has transcended the island borders of its making and has introduced a plethora of perked ears to its style. With the OVO-signed artiste’s continued success in the dancehall arena and the mastery he demonstrates when he merges the culture with an international genre, he is deliberately parading dancehall music in a mainstream arena with a widely respected authenticity.

Gone are the days that people wondered when if ever Popcaan’s place on the OVO roster would mean something for dancehall music. The Unruly Boss has been killing it this year and only after years more of consistent work and tenacity, which is to say the rewards are well-deserved. Popcaan attained a lot this year through joint work and on his own. When he released his latest EP FIXTAPE earlier this year, Popcaan etched his name into the international dancehall book of fame in a way fans had been waiting eagerly for him to endeavor.

The project debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart and No. 94 on the Billboard 200, making him one of the very few artists from Jamaica who have cracked that code. Popcaan also took the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Top Reggae Albums chart with FIXTAPE and the Top Reggae Songs chart for Twist & Turn. The PND-assisted hit, which was one of two Drake collaborations on the album, was the most successful of the project and peaked at No. 19 on Billboard’s close-call Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart and No. 47 on the Canadian Hot 100.

Popcaan was recently honored for his prestigious accomplishment with a pair of Billboard plaques that showcases the achievements in detail. That includes the album debuting at No. 15 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart. Popcaan shared a video of the unboxing on his Instagram while paying homage to Vybz Kartel, OVO, and, of course, Unruly. It was a gratifying moment for the dancehall star, but it did not strip him of his modesty. It’s values like these that separate Popcaan from his counterparts.

While his distinction is irrefutable, he never fails to lionize the man who gave him his start. Quite fittingly, Bounty Killer saw Popcaan’s moment of triumph as an opportune time to tout him once again as the face of dancehall. It’s almost poetic when we think about it as Bounty is to Kartel what Kartel is to Popcaan. “Congratulations work a put in salute yute last year l made a post saying Popcaan was dancehall new face some ppl disagreed,” Bounty wrote on his Instagram resharing Popcaan’s video uncovering his billboard plaques.

This is a huge win for Popcaan, but it is also a testament to his commitment to dancehall music. The Unruly leader earned this accolade in one of his most prolific years yet. With a vast number of collaborations being released this year with the likes of Drake, Maroon 5, Jorga Smith, Wiz Khalifa, Dave East, and more, Popcaan was on top of his game like never before. His vocals were heard far and wide, and so was his name in tandem with dancehall.

If we evaluate the work he has put in, we can begin to understand why the world has started to identify dancehall music with Popcaan. If we look at online discussions and interviews, it is evident that the deejay’s name has become a familiar one in the vernacular for pop culture fanatics. While some often associate him with the “Canadian rapper” label, Popcaan’s patriotism has never dwindled, and he neglects no opportunity to correct the misconception.

Maroon 5’s “Nobody’s Love,” which featured Popcaan, peaked at No. 41 on the Billboard Hot 100, and it goes without saying that the band’s clout guaranteed that millions are enjoying the dancehall star’s vocals on repeat. After all, it was the first song they released all year. Many agree that Popcaan has become the face of dancehall indeed, and he might be on the brink of his biggest hit yet with his newly released jam with rap music “Hot Girl” Megan Thee Stallion. The track titled “Intercourse” is led by Popcaan, who completely makes it his own. This is just the beginning for the Unruly Boss. Get ready to see this new face of dancehall carve out a whole new lane internationally.

Jeezy Breaks Down How He Handled A Very Tense Showdown With Gucci Mane

Jeezy is revealing how he handle what was a very contentious Verzuz with longtime foe Gucci Mane.

Jeezy’s post-analysis of Thursday’s historic Verzuz is heavily focused on how he managed to stay calm and focused during the at times tense battle. Speaking to hosts on The Breakfast Club on how he handled Gucci Mane’s “disrespectful” comments- making fun of his friend’s death Pookie Loc and even his sense of fashion, Jeezy says his maturity won’t let him be the person he once was.

“I looked at it like we ain’t sixth graders. We not kids,” Jeezy recalled. “You can’t antagonize me with something that we both understand ’cause I’m not in the same mental space as I was 20 years ago nor can I let you take me there.”

Jeezy says letting Gucci Mane taking back to that place he was two decades ago would’ve been more upsetting than anything else. Nevertheless, his self-control was admiral and even Charlamagne Tha God admitted in the interview that Jeezy won the Verzuz battle because of how he handled a very contentious situation.

The two rappers have been feuding since 2005. However, Jeezy says he has grown as a person from that time to now.

“I’m not that same person I was 20 years ago when that’s how things spiraled out of control anyway,” he explained. “I took the last 10 years to better myself because of a lot of things that happened in my life. I just promised myself that I would never put myself in those positions again.

During Thursday night’s event, Jeezy said his main reason for wanting to rap battle Gucci Mane was because it was needed as an example for the younger generation and the preservation of the culture, which has always been dominated by violence. Some rappers have even lost their lives in some of the incidents – the most recent King Von and Nipsey Hussle.

He said he and Gucci will now have to work on healing their relationship. “As men, it’s been going on almost two decades. It was a point when we were cool,” he said. “The real sh*t that went on, that’s just something me and him gonna have to figure out later on but for y’all it’s just like I understand it. The more it goes on, the worse it’s gonna be, we like the forefront of it so anybody who’s behind us, that’s the way to go. Time heals all. But that was effort–it’s in front of the world. It ain’t even for show. It’s real life–we both gotta come to grips with that. We both gotta really be men.”

More than 1.8 million viewers tuned in to see the Southern heavyweights battle it out. Gucci Mane himself has accepted the olive branch from Jeezy.

But this was the moment of the night! ????#Verzuz#JeezyvsGucciMane

Dokken – Broken Heart Lyrics

Something’s going on
The shattered edge of night, it calls to me
Calls me
That my love, she’s gone away
Away
Far away from here
Yes, she’s gone
And all I’ve got is this broken heart
And all I’ve got is this broken heart
Broken heart

She can’t hear my cries
Far away, she can’t see my tears
Oh no
Far away from here, she’s gone
She’s gone
Away
Never to return
Yes, it’s true, and all I’ve got is this broken heart

All I’ve got is this broken heart
Broken heart
Broken heart

Far across the sea
Back to distant lands where she comes from
They say she was just a dream, a dream I know
I know
But I love her still
Yes, she’s gone, she’s gone
And left me here with this broken heart
Left me here with this broken heart
All I’ve got is this broken heart
All I’ve got is this broken heart
