Alkaline delivered his second new single over the past couple of days, “Nothing Nuh Change.”

“A who seh ntn nuh change,” the deejay starts this track with conviction over an alternative fusion beat. His versatility and songwriting ability keeps shining out, his refinement in this area is what seems to set him apart from his peers. He as usual in this song is fighting against the world and like always he comes out on top.

“Mi life it a shot / like mi life is a glock or a mac,” Alkaline deejay. “When mi drop out dem aguh remember mi as a great one.”

He states the hate he receives from other industry comes with the territory as he has risen to the top of the industry. Honestly this song is refreshing as the summer song season is in full swing, this track in this time packs a completely different punch. Not one to ever flood the market the Vendetta deejay approaches this song with maturity and an increase in knowledge of his surroundings (the industry). He strongly critiques there behavior toward his success labeling it as we Jamaicans often do as “badmind.”

The artistes frame if mind is clear he’s at the top, he’s s here to stay, he’s “The Man Himself,” who said nothing changed?

2019 hasn’t been Alka’s best year hit wise but we all know his quality and what he can do. He has a serious song on his hands with “Ntn Nuh Change” and we look forward to seeing its progression. Vendetta Fans queue up, Alka has blood in his eyes again!

Alkaline, Spice & Capleton To Perform At Dream Weekend 2019

 

Dream Weekend is set to entertain patrons beyond their wildest expectations this year with planned performances from Alkaline, Spice, Capleton, and more.

The star-studded lineup at this year’s ‘larger than life’ event is a perfect blend. Twisted Spiritz is going to be a great kick-off when the queen of the stage, Spice performs. The following night at Yush, the fireman himself, Capleton sets it ablaze, and after that World Vibes should really be a vibe when Alkaline graces us with his presence.

Marketing Director for Dream Entertainment, Carlos Phillpotts told the Gleaner, “For over a decade, we have been the standard-bearers in local entertainment, and that will never change. This year, patrons will have even more performances from the hottest acts and maybe a few surprise celebrity cameos. From the best sponsors to the best event concepts, Dream Weekend 2019 is larger than life.”

Be ready to be right back at it again at Mawning After when Ding Dong comes with the “Good Thing Dem” before Celebrity Playground is shut down by Munga Honorable.

Young breakouts will debut at our water parties. The ‘Chop Chop’ deejay, Takeova will be at Wet and Wild, and Hot Frass will perform at Igloo. We can’t wait to see who will make a surprise appearance as well.

It is true that the annual weeklong getaway has always been the bar held extremely high that other events have been measured against. It’s great to hear that the highly anticipated music festival does not plan on compromising that standard or passing the baton anytime soon.

Partygoers – both local and abroad – are gearing up for this signature event that will take place on August 2nd to August 6th. Of course, tickets are both locally and internationally available as well with outlets in Florida, Queens, NY, Atlanta, GA, Ontario, CA and London, UK.
