After taking an extended break from the music scene, internationally recognized recording artist, Alty B, known for his 2013 smash hit, Island Girl (feat. Richie Loop) has returned with a proverbial call to arms, shooting lyrics aimed at bringing back a positive vibe to dancehall across the Greater Toronto Area and Canada with his new SINGLE, Nice Up In Yah.
With the Canadian dancehall scene in need of a mainstream boost, Alty B speaks on many of its promising talents that have shown flashes of their talents, but have seldom been heard from in recent times. With ‘no vindictive feelings’ being expressed, as the song’s intro indicates, Nice Up in Yah mentions friends and fellow acts such as Eyesus, Sample King, Ziggy Eva Strap, Blessed and Lindo P as he openly wonders why Canadian dancehall fans have not seen much from some of the familiar names within the LOCAL industry.
The Island Girl singer ponders why ‘from when Five Star nuh sing bout di gyal dem, Badda Squad? nuh hear from way back when,” as he looks for answers as to why the scene is not as vibrant as it once was. Furthermore, he addresses fans who have questioning his own hiatus from the music scene as he reveals the birth of his first child played a major role as he put family first before deciding to make his triumphant return.
Featuring the combination of a pulsating beat and Alty’s vibrant PERSONALITY, Nice Up In Yah is a charge to bring back the energy and dedication to Canadian dancehall that it so desperately needs, with the always-ambitious entertainer willing to step to the forefront to lead said charge.
Produced by fellow Jamaica COLLEGE alum, Ramus and Brampton-based Unit One Recording, this track is simple but effective with its motivation; a chance to rejuvenate interest this popular genre across the GTA and garner attention from the necessary industry players to again put Canadian dancehall on the map. With a mixtape in the works and other projects to come, Alty B aims to ‘nice up’ the scene again through his music

Aiming to take the music world by storm, one lyric at a time, Real Entertainment Productions recording artist,Alty B is back in the spotlight, releasing his first single for 2014 entitled Nobody.

This song, produced by Smokeshop Studios, showcases the epitome of a ‘rags to riches’ type story, as Alty B speaks of the hypocrisy shown by people once a relatively unknown name gains some sort of recognition. Voiced on a beat combining Dancehall and Reggae elements, Nobody points out the struggles and whole heap a blood, sweat and tears’ it took for the singjay to gain respect in his industry while warning others in a similar situation to watch his or her surroundings that much more when success comes calling.

Nobody has already found favour in his native Jamaica, with radio stations across the island playing the single in rotation. Alty B’s flow and straight-shooting lyrics make this song a worthy listen given its ability to relate to so many people who go through this everyday experience.

Alty B landed his biggest mainstream hit thus far after combining with fellow singer, Richie Loop for their collaborative effort, Island Girl. The song was a hit with several local TV and radio stations while also gaining heavy rotation in his base in the Greater Toronto Area and across Canada. Other notable 2013 singles from the R.E.P artist, who is currently being managed by Andrew Lee Pryceincluded Bubble Fi Me (feat. Cubanis),Leaving You (feat. Ebony Royal) and Woman I Need You (feat. Jah Cube).

Look out for the official video for Nobody in the near future as well as the single on iTunes, distributed by Johnny Wonder and Hapilos 21st. This is the first of many things to come from this rising sensation throughout 2014 and the foreseeable future.

RDX stole my ‘Island Girl,’ claims Alty B

After staying silent during the first go-around, fast-rising Dancehall star and Real Entertainment Productionsrecording artist, Alty B is now crying foul after making strong claims that popular Dancehall group, RDX has pirated his breakthrough single, Island Girl.

The hit song, featuring fellow singjay Richie Loop was released earlier this year, to mass success, garnering Alty B unprecedented attention with hundreds of thousands of views across several music websites. The song also saw the emerging entertainer splashed across several Jamaican and Caribbean music stations as well as charts worldwide as the official video for Island Girl made him a must-watch star in the making.

However, the singjay now claims RDX stole his concept and flow for their own single dubbed Island Girl, which was recently released on the JA Productions produced Overdrive Riddim.

This isn’t the first time RDX has blatantly copied one of his songs, according to Alty B. The No More singer insists the veteran group pulled off a similar tactic two years ago following the release of his dance-themed hit, Splice.

“I saw it has an opportunity for my song [Splice] to get out there publicly but that was not the outcome,” he recalled. “Instead RDX gain fame while my song eventually died out.”

Andrew Lee Pryce, founder of Real Entertainment Productions and Alty B’s manager relayed his shock upon hearing of RDX’s single and believes it validates accusations by other acts that the group has stolen their ideas also.

“I often heard entertainers saying that RDX go around stealing people songs but I’ve finally heard it first hand and I’m not gonna take this lightly,” he explained.

The Pryce-led Real Entertainment Productions has signaled their intent to seek legal discourse should they fail to get a response from RDX’s management team to resolve this ongoing issue.

Meanwhile, Alty B is looking to build on the success of Island Girl as he is working on a soon-to-be released single, Nobody and will be touring parts of the Caribbean, including Trinidad and Tobago later this year.

Additionally, the Toronto-based singjay is working on a major collaboration with a Canadian-born international superstar in the coming weeks, which is sure to land the multi-talented entertainer his biggest break to date.
