Earlier this tear, Spice crowned herself the new reigning queen of Jamaica’s dominant music genre, dancehall, a title previously held by Lady Saw who is now a gospel artist and a pastor. In 2015, Lady Saw relinquished her crown to become a Christian and she never looked back. She struggled with the transition for years before finally making her break-through. Since then no one stepped up to set on the throne at least not until this year when Spice stepped up to the plate.
There is no doubt that Spice has been a force in dancehall for the past few years, but is it enough to wear the crown for the queen of the dancehall? Beenie Man answered that question during an interview with Winford Williams on OnStage last weekend. “Well the queen of dancehall baptized now… Marion Hall [Lady Saw], the queen of dancehall baptized,” Beenie Man said. “So I am here to see the next queen to come.” When asked about Spice crowning herself, Beenie said, “Well she is the one that stepped up to the plate but that’s not how you become the queen.”
“Because if you’re going to take Lady Saw crown then you have to do what Lady Saw did like no disrespect, you can’t do less work and [want to be the queen],” Beenie added. The dancehall king lamented that Spice will have to elevate her career to the same heights as Lady Saw in order to gain the respect of the fans. “Becomes that artist that you know… she is Spice in Jamaica, she is Spice everywhere Jamaicans is, she is Spice everywhere Caribbean people is, she needs to be Spice where American and British people meet,” the Doc continues. “I am not talking about watching Instagram and talking about song, reaching the people ears the right way, being that artist that we can sit down in Jamaica and look on you on MTV and look on you on VH1 and say alright she has done it and she has reached that point. Because Lady Saw did it and she reached that point.”
Beenie Man added that Spice is more like the queen-elect, but still has more work to do to elevate her career to the next level.
Chris Brown new album Heartbreak on a Full Moon is now available on iTunes/Apple Music.
Over the weekend, Chris Brown released three new songs off the album, “Hope You Do,” “Everybody Knows,” and “Pull Up.” He also includes other previously released singles on the 45-track album like “Privacy,” “Party” with Gucci Mane and Usher, “Pills & Automobiles” featuring Yo Gotti, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, and Kodak Black, “Grass Ain’t Greener,” and “High End” featuring Future and Young Thug. Elsewhere on the album, you will find guest appearances from Lil Yachty, R. Kelly, Jhene Aiko, Verse Simmons, Ty Dolla $ign, and more.
Heartbreak on a Full Moon is the followup to Chris Brown’s 2015 album Royalty. Since dropping that project, Breezy has released a handful of mixtapes including a project with his OHB crew. Heartbreak on a Full Moon is Chris Brown’s biggest album to date in terms of the number of songs packed on two discs. Last week, the R&B singer did an interview with Ebro on Hot 97 radio where he revealed that he currently has over 800 unreleased songs on his phone. That makes his phone a lot more valuable than his house and if get into the wrong hands could pose a threat to him.
The “Grass Ain’t Greener” singer will be hosting an Halloween-themed album release party on Tuesday night, October 31st in Los Angeles. He will also be performing at a pop-up show on Wednesday at a location yet to be announced.
2017 has been a big year for Chris Brown who recently received eight new platinum plaques from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Three of the plaques are for singles that received double platinum status. While a few of them are for singles that should’ve received platinum status in the past, but never did.

Remy Ma will be calling Columbia Records home for the foreseeable after signing a multi-million dollar deal with the label.
The New York rapper’s career has been going “All The Way Up” since her release from prison in 2014.

Remy will be joining the cast for season eight of Love and Hip Hop New York along with new cast member Safaree Samuels, singer Lil Mo and her husband Karl Dargan.

Before having an impressive 2017, the former Terror Squad rapper spent eight years in prison for shooting her former friend for allegedly stealing $3000 from her purse.

The “Sheets” deejay react via Instagram on Monday calling the dancehall legend a hater just because she thinks that Vybz Kartel is the king of dancehall. “D Rasta man [Beenie Man] vex true mi say a Kartel a the king a dancehall,” Spice said. “Smh Veterans want to be praised for paving the way but still never want to let go or embrace the New artiste. You crowned yourself king when yellow man was really the king and then over the years you were found fit after repeatedly self proclaiming it.”
From around the mid-1990s, Beenie Man proclaimed himself as the king of dancehall and despite some rejection from some artists and fans at the time, it eventually sticks. There is always a debate in dancehall about who is the king, but there has never been a real debate on who the queen is until now because Lady Saw fittingly wore that crown for the past two decades. Spice has now stepped up to plate and crowned herself and that territory comes with controversies.
“Unlike bounty killer who highlighted so many dancehall careers what did you ever do for dancehall after so many years as the “KING” Not even a one girl yu never buss as a dancer much less not even your own daughter a Ding Dong haffie dweet Kmt,” Spice added. “Saw left a huge shoe to fill and no female will fill it overnight. Nothing is wrong with your sentence “The Queen got baptized” we all know that, but you also do know that the king is incarcerated right.”
Spice also used the opportunity to promote her new single with Beenie Man’s ex-wife D’Angel, “No Worries.”
D Rasta man vex true mi say a Kartel a the king a dancehall. Smh Veterans want to be praised for paving the way but still never want to let go or embrace the New artiste. You crowned yourself king when yellow man was really the king and then over the years you were found fit after repeatedly self proclaiming it. Unlike bounty killer who highlighted so many dancehall careers what did you ever do for dancehall after so many years as the "KING" Not even a one girl yu never buss as a dancer much less not even your own daughter a Ding Dong haffie dweet Kmt. Saw left a huge shoe to fill and no female will fill it overnight. Nothing is wrong with your sentence "The Queen got baptized" we all know that, but you also do know that the king is incarcerated right ? ?

Trust mi I'm not here to fight for the invisible crown I'm Making moves one step at a time. Some a unu egotistical hypocrites a talk bout a pure slackness mi sing just answer which female sung the most slack songs in dancehall history ? When I sing good songs they don't even get played but as mi sing a slack song a it unu know. Haters can't bring me down Same thing unu did do Bob Marley unu never claims him or highlight him until he became international but trust me I'll work hard enough to see the bandwagonist. Too much bitterness in dancehall mi soon left it and go do hip hop
Kartel made the strong statement in his new song “Kremlin” produced by Rvssian. Both rival deejays released new music over the weekend and fans of both sides of the divide are weighing on which one is better. In the incarcerated deejay’s new single “Kremlin,” he took shots at Alkaline in a few lines. “Who borrow me style fi know say dem owe me pon the loan / We a mega star, so everything we do it haffi show,” Kartel deejay over the Moscow Riddim.
Alkaline has been criticized for the past few years for stealing Vybz Kartel’s style. The Vendetta deejay denied the allegations and his fans have been pushing back while also accusing the Gazanation boss of being envious of Alka’s rise in dancehall. “We all know that the blind boy thief Addi style and can’t come out with a new song unless he is copying someone style,” one fan wrote.
“As a non Vendetta or Gaza fan,” one fan wrote. “A non biased ear can’t help but to be honest that Alkaline stop following Kartel and find his own cadence and flow since his last album and a whole bunch of singles. I respect Vybz Kartel but fans use the days of him following Kartel to this day to ignorantly discredit his talent. On the other hand he had to do what he had to do because of you the same fans who make it hard for any artist to catch your attention and to show their talent without some copying or controversy.”
