Female deejay Sajay has released a single titled Nuh New Cama.

According to Sajay, the song has been getting good feedback and she is expecting the same from the video once it is released.

Said Sajay, "Right now I am getting ready to drop the video and I am very pleased with the outcome because I wrote the script and we got the results we wanted".

Sajay whose real name is Samantha Johnson, recognised her musical talent at an early age. She honed her craft by performing on various school events while attending Mayday Junior High School and later Manchester High School.

She made her recording debut with the song Crime Rate, and followed up with Red Hot on the Sledge riddim.

Trillo to make debut at Sting

Newcomer Trillo got some attention over the summer with the song and video It's Summertime, which features dancehall artiste Macka Diamond.

Trillo whose real name is Vanya Gopaul is set to make his debut on the Sting stage later this month.

When asked how he felt about his upcoming performance on the Sting stage, Trillo commented "There is absolutely no denying the power of the Jamaican people and their appreciation for your music. Once they give you the thumbs up, you know almost immediately that international recognition in the music is yours for the taking."

Nando pays tribute to struggling mothers

Singer Nando pays tribute to the struggles of single mothers, and women in general, on his latest single Get Better.

The artiste says based on the success of the song, he has decided to throw his support behind a few initiatives. Moved by a recent article in a local newspaper that detailed the inability of a single mother to pay registration fees to pursue studies at a local tertiary institution, Nando has partnered with the One Jam Foundation to launch his Get Better Campaign.

Nando is set to release his debut album Yaad and Abroad in February next year.

Chart Updates

Jimmy Cliff spends a second week at number one on Billboard's reggae album chart with the EP Sacred Fire. Meanwhile, a week after the announcement of the Grammy nominations, albums from Ziggy Marley (Wild and Free) and Stephen Marley (Revelation Part 1) have seen upward movement on the chart.

Rihanna maintains her lead for a fifth week on the Billboard Hot 100 as We Found Love featuring Calvin Harris, hangs tight despite strong pressure from LMFAO's Sexy & I Know It which sits in the bridesmaid position for a fifth week. New inside the top 10 bolting from 15 to eight is Niggas in Paris by Jay Z and Kanye West. The track is culled from their collaborative album Watch the Throne which has so far sold over a million copies stateside.

Meanwhile over on the UK album chart, former X Factor finalist Olly Murs debuts at number one with his set In Case You Didn't Know.

Did You Know

The late soul singer Ray Charles had a massive hit in 1962 with the song I Can't Stop Loving You. But did you know that the song was written and originally recorded by country singer Don Gibson in 1958? Gibson's version reached number seven on the Billboard Hot 100. That same year, another country singer Kitty Wells recorded a version of the song which became a huge hit on the country charts at the same time as Gibson's version.

Charles' version hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B Singles charts.
