Trick Daddy & Trina Release New Single, "Smooth Sailing"

Trick Daddy and Trina release their first single off their 'TNT' album.  

A few months after announcing their joint album TNT, Trick Daddy and Trina have officially given us a glimpse of their new sound with their brand new single "Smooth Sailing." On the single premiered by Billboard, Miami's most revered rappers tap into a refreshing lane that they haven't pursued together in over a decade with a brand new twist that we've never heard from Slip N' Slide Records' star artists.

"We’re going to do music for all walks of Earth," Trick Daddy told Billboard. "We got a Jamaican feature on there, Ali Coyote. He’s a stone cold Jamaican for real. Then we give shouts out to the Haitians in the hook. We’re coming from the most poverty stricken neighborhoods and showing them all of that. Both of us come from low-income homes. We want to do music to remind them of what we used to be. This album is really going to show them the true color of Miami, what we stand for and what we’re about."

Trick Daddy Dollars keeps it all the way one hunnid with gritty bars about his place in the game and the city that made him. Meanwhile, Trina glides over the trap-like instrumental with her mature vocals and slick lyrics. Miami newcomer Ali Coyote keeps the hook super lit with his memorable rhymes dedicated to Dade County.

"We wanted a different sound not just the same old thing," Trina said about the album. "Different ideas and songs that’s relevant to us right now for everyone to enjoy. Our old fans, the new fans that we’re bringing in, plus everyone that’s been rocking with us since day one. We’re just trying to make a collaborative album that everyone can enjoy, and it’s truly different sound."

Watch Taraji P. Henson Bring The Party To The 2020 American Music Awards

What can't Taraji P. Henson do? The actress, philanthropist, and new podcast series host kicked off the American Music Awards 2020 with an energetic opening number many of us didn't know we needed. Live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Henson hit the stage with The Wiz's "A Brand New Day" and danced through other classics like Prince's "Let's Go Crazy," Jay-Z's "Dirt Off Your Shoulder, and Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage."

By the end of Cardi B's "W.A.P.," Henson's outfit changes a gold bodysuit and a slew of masked dancers by her side, let's just say Ms. Henson did that as this year's host of the annual music award show. After completing her performance before America (and a small socially distanced audience), she got powdered up and got right into it. Alright, Taraji!

Sizzla Sings From The Heart In His "Without You" Music Video

"Righteousness will always get a fight," Sizzla Kalonji once told me, "and that is only to make you stronger." That conversation took place in 1997, he year Sizzla electrified lovers of reggae and dancehall music with two landmark albums, Praise Ye Jah and Black Woman & Child. Sizzla has gone on to become one of the most prolific artists of his generation, releasing his most recent album, Million Times in September—a collection of 12 sweet love songs, touching on the sounds that made songs like "Just One of Those Days" and "Give Me A Try" so legendary.

"Beautiful people want to listen to the beautiful reggae music," Sizzla told me. "And you know reggae bashes against corruption. It’s not just a music to sing spirituality only and to make you feel good and sing love songs, conscious songs. And it’s good for social commentary, a very good music to be used for social commentary. And any little thing happen to the poor people, we’re quick to express ourselves on dancehall riddims and on the one-drop roots rock reggae riddim. And what we’re explaining and expressing is the total truth. It’s a music that can be used for expressing our innermost feelings and thoughts."

Today, VIBE and Boomshots proudly premiere the new music video from the album "Without You." Big Up Kalonji every time.

Million Times is out now on all music streaming platforms.
