Melissa Steel ft. Popcaan - "Kisses For Breakfast" [Music Video]

I've written about Melissa Steel's debut single featuring one of dancehall's finest exports, Popcaan, here. Watch the video below. Proper nice video to match the song. Shot in Jamaica. Obviously.

Really think the song suits here to a tee.

Some recent Jamaican videos fi di i-dem

Quick updates on some videos for songs I'm feeling

Keznamdi dropped a well shot video for acoustic jam "I Don't Wanna" for the ladies them. Catch this one on the 'Bridging the Gap' EP.

Kabaka Pyramid reverts to a more hip hop vibe with "Liberal Opposer", but importantly, retains his Jamaican identity. Video shot during his time in London. Can't go wrong with fire pon babylon.

"Pon di battlefield, I'm a rebel with a cause.
Never pause
Babylon ah devil"

Mavado "Tie Yuh" on the impressive Sex Mate riddim is one of the best gal songs Mavado has done in a bit. Wicked melody on the chorus. Second half of the video is the best Mavado gal song in recent time for me, "Friends With Benefits". Same speed as "fire pon babylon" songs, you can't go wrong with sexy dancehall.

Busy Signal demonstrates flows upon flows on "Bou-Yah". Ok, so its a Mavado diss subliminal, but ignoring that because we don't want another Alliance war, the way he abuses the Khona riddim is disgusting.

Kranium's anthem for the summer. The way this is gonna lock the little segue from hip hop to dancehall jugglings. "My Lifestyle". Should be able to make a few change from cutting dubs too. This New Yorker is gonna have a good summer what with "Nobody Has To Know" already burning up the gal section.

Major Lazer finally got with Sean Paul to lace something and it's fire. Sean Paul delivers a vintage performance with melody and lyrics.
