While she has only just released her first single “Tight Skirt” a few weeks ago, Samantha J is blazing a whole new trail from Jamaica to the U.S. “Tight Skirt” is already being spun at over 50+ stations in the U.S. including Sirius/XM The Heat, Power 105 NYC, WJMN Boston, and WZMX Hartford.

The music video for “Tight Skirt,” which made its BET debut as their coveted New Joint of the Day on 106 & Park on October 24, features Samantha as the quintessential Jamaican Rude Girl who is leaving after school detention. Samantha explains, “We wanted to show what Britney Spears’ ‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’ would have looked like if it was shot in Downtown Kingston with authentic dancehall choreography and dancers.”
KINGSTON, Jamaica — The murder trial of Vybes Kartel and four other men experienced further delay Monday morning due to “personal tragedy” of the prosecution witness.
Prosecutor Jeremy Taylor told the court that due to the personal tragedy of the prosecution witness from the Police Cyber Crimes unit the witness was unable to attend court today and would be available tomorrow.
Taylor then asked for an adjournment for the day.
However this was objected to by Kartel’s attorney Tom Tavares-Finson who deemed the request unacceptable.
Justice Lennox Campbell agreed with Tavares-Finson and ordered Taylor to make an effort to get another witness to attend court today.

American rapper A$AP Ferg scored his biggest career hit, with the single Shabba, which is a club banger that pays homage to legendary two-time Grammy Award-winning dancehall artiste Shabba Ranks.
The song was released on July 16, 2013 as the second single from the album Trap Lord, Ferg’s debut studio album. The single was named the third-best rap song released in 2013, by Complex Magazine.
The remix features American Rapper Busta Rhymes and one of Atlanta’s most popular contemporary rap group Migos, known for the single Versace, as well as a verse by the icon himself Shabba Ranks.
The remix of Shabba starts off with a rousing introduction courtesy of the song’s namesake, Shabba Ranks who sings,
Always the best A$AP fly the flag
Say my name little louder holla out mi name mek a rip up dah crowd yah
Say it three times a me unno proud of
Call out mi name bawl out mi name
Nah stop till it reach Hall of Fame
Everybody and Shabba nuh di same
Every time mi spit mi spit flame
A mi dem in need a,
true crowd pleaser,
tun non-believer, inna believer.
Come crowd a people follow the procedure,
mi nuh Rakim but follow the leader
from Jamaica right back to Geneva
Shabba Rankin a true crowd pleaser.
According to A$AP Ferg, he decided to pay homage to Shabba in his song because Shabba is a legend and deserves more credit for his work.
“I am very excited because Shabba is a legend and a lot of that dancehall stuff and Jamaican music came from him. I feel like he doesn’t get a lot of credit which is part of the reason why I decided to do this song. It’s sorta like bringing a pop icon back and giving him the props that he deserves am gonna call him A$AP Shabba for now,” the rapper said via his YouTube VEVO channel.
