Remember the name….Michael Star. The rising reggae artist, known for his sultry smooth vocals, continues to captivate audiences with his innate musical gift. On the heels of his widely successful single, “Tun Up,” Michael Star is back with the release of his highly anticipated second single, “7 o’clock” featuring reggae icon, Bounty Killer.

Woven in a melodic, calypso rhythm kismet with Michael Star’s rich, smooth vocals, intertwined with Bounty Killer’s synonymously deep and aggressive flow, “7 o’clock” is guaranteed to be this summer’s ‘big tune.’ 

Written by Michael Star, with Bounty Killer’s verses written by Bounty Killer and Matthew Thompson; “7 o’clock” was produced by Ricky Myrie and Dr. Basil “King” Beale of King Recordings Entertainment. The infectious track is reggae/dancehall perfection, filled with true music emotion and feeling to the soul. “7 o’clock is the perfect broken-heart-healing-record that gives permission to grieve love lost, start over, and love again.

“The inspiration for “7 o’clock” came about from me seeing others go through an emotional breakup and how it affected them,” says Michael Star on his second single. “Life is so unpredictable and oftentimes, we forget that it’s okay to grieve, it’s okay to start over, and it’s okay to fall in love. This song is a reminder that no relationship is perfect, nor are we as human beings, the exception.” 

As the son of iconic Jamaican singer, Mikey Spice, Michael Star is no stranger to the dancehall scene, with his musical roots ingrained deep since 2014. The New York-bred singing talent, currently residing in Atlanta, is not only known for his melodic vocals, but also his impressive dance moves, heavily inspired and reminiscent of Chris Brown and the late great Michael Jackson. From opening for massive acts such as Wayne Wonder and Beres Hammond, Star continues to perfect his craft, which is indicated in his hit new single, “7 o’clock” featuring the legendary Bounty Killer.

“The day that Bankey sent me the song, I knew instantly that I wanted to be a part of it.” says dancehall phenomenon Bounty Killer. “7 o’clock has a message that I can relate to because of some of my own life experiences.”

“I am so honored that Bounty Killer agreed to appear on the track,” says Michael Star on working with his favorite dancehall artist. “I grew up listening to Bounty Killer, he is a living legend. This is a true dream come true for me.,” the multifaceted artist muses. “I was excited because I’ve watched Bounty Killer’s performances to learn more about dancehall and how it all originated. It’s not often that a Dancehall Legend takes time out of his busy schedule to listen to an upcoming artist’s music, and actually like it! So right now, I’m on cloud nine, and I am still absorbing the moment.”

“7 o’clock” by Michael Star featuring Bounty Killer is now available on all digital platforms, and the video will be released in the coming months.

Nirvana Nokwe’s New EP Nirvous Love Is a Sensual Exploration of Self

Published

on

Nirvous Love

Multifaced musical force Nirvana Nokwe has released her much awaited EP Nirvous Love, a soulful 6-track project stamping the budding artist’s credentials as an auteur of immersive and affecting music.

Stream/Download Nirvous Love here: https://paradise.fanlink.to/NIRVOUSLOVE

Featured on the cover of Apple Music’s new releases Nirvous Love is an EP that brings one’s soul on a voyage of discovery: a story of love and awakening. Being self-aware due of the replicated dynamics of destruction, betrayal and hurt created in childhood, Nirvana explores the vindictive streak to attaining the love we all deserve.

 

With singles such as “2 Woke 4 Love” and “Waiting” laying the foundation, Nirvana delivers a cohesive and slyly eclectic body of work, rooted in retro, indie rock, Zulu drums, gqom and amapiano sounds, along with her ear-tingling vocal melodies and themes that dig into varying facets of the human condition.

“This project is a language in how we define and predict love. I hope everyone can find solace and healing and be relieved from the shackles of control and being controlling. This project is the blueprint of a genre I’m pioneering called Cosmic. Definitely something many may call sonic cinema, explains Nirvana.  

Nirvana’s storytelling is intimate, truthful and, quite literally, out of this world with her ethereal sounds and deep passions for astrology. Her personal brand encapsulates the modern-day intellectualised dreamer, reflecting on the complexities of life and her place in the world.

While she is Johannesburg born, she identifies more with her years in KwaMashu and Lamtonville, Durban. Her family is rooted in the arts, making it possible for Nirvana to have participated in the entertainment industry at 4-years-old as a professional. By the age of 10, Nirvana understood what she was doing in entertainment and concluded that she wanted to continue pursuing a career in the arts.

“Nirvana’s latest release shows the diversity, future thinking and artistic integrity she has developed over her career. With massive support from stores such as Apple Music, it’s clear that she has a lot to offer and we’re excited to hear what’s yet to come,” expresses Mike Kelly Label Manager at Paradise.

A creative, a performer, trained singer, actress, producer, fashion model and filmmaker. These are some of the titles that can be attributed to Nirvana Nokwe. The 26-year-old hailing from Jozi is one independent to watch for.
