AUDIO: Tarrus Riley feat. Big Youth + Mr Cheeks – “Five Days”

Words by Jesse Serwer—


It seems like everyone in reggae is going back to the foundation. In 2012 it was Mr. Vegas and Busy Signal, with their respective Sweet Jamaica and Reggae Music Again LPs. Last year it was Shaggy, and Out of Many, One Music. This year, Tarrus Riley is leading the movement back to reggae basics with Love Movement, an album which delves deep into the roots and rocksteady eras.

Live + Direct: Watch Shaggy + Beres Hammond “Fight This Feeling” Video

Words by Tami Tsansai—

Beres x Shaggy

There’s no better time than summer to welcome feelgood tracks and eye-popping music videos complete with scantily-clad dancing girls, beach scenes and popping champagne corks. Enter dancehall darling Shaggy’s collab with lovers’ rock crooner Beres Hammond to turn this concept on its head… in a good way. We featured the monster track “Fight This Feeling” – the first single from Shaggy’s new album, Out of Many, One Music produced by ‘riddim’ genii Sly and Robbie – a few months ago, and are now happy to present its accompanying Joel Burke-directed video. And what a video it is!

LargeUp TV: Marcia Griffiths x Toppa Top 10 Reggae Love Duets

Words by Jesse Serwer, Video and Photo by Joel Ndunda—

Marcia Griffiths Valentines Day

No one has more classic reggae duets than Marcia Griffiths. The queen of reggae and former member of Bob Marley’s I-Threes has made hits with everyone from Beres Hammond to Buju Banton to Bob Andy, many of which are collected on her newly released Marcia Griffiths and Friends double CD. When we found out Marcia was planning something special of her own for Valentine’s Day this year, we connected with Marcia to select 10 of our favorite reggae love duets—meaning songs performed together by male and female vocalists, on the topic of love—for a special Valentine’s Day Toppa Top 10 countdown. Watch the video countdown below, and catch Marcia’s Valentine’s Day performance, at Gingerbay in Hollywood, Florida, live on her website tonight.
