BITS & PIECES: A hip hop-spiked new joint from Sean Paul + Nyanda nabs the solo spotlight + A steamy season ahead for local theatre

Are we witnessing the start of a Sean Paul summer? Following the recent debut of the radio banger "Other Side of Love" and the still-hot Beenie Man collabo "Greatest Gallis", SP has dropped "Entertainment," a club smash-in-the-waiting, which features hip-hop's 2 Chainz and Juicy J. The song is off the Grammy winner's upcoming sixth studio album (a fall release), which is as-yet-untitled and for which he's teamed with hitmaking producers like Maejor Ali, Six One and Young Yonny. "I always say that dancehall has become a staple of all genres of music, and I am excited to continue to show how much of an impact the music has had," says Sean Paul. "I have been a fan of 2 Chainz and Juicy J for a while and getting them together on this track made perfect sense. As always we needed to give the fans something to dance to for the summer." >> Listen to "Entertainment".

With pop-reggae duo Brick & Lace on recording hiatus, Nyanda Thorbourne is determined to show she can wow fans all on her own and bring it as a solo star. Releasing her playful, supersexy new tune "Slippery When Wet," produced by Black Lion -- accompanied by an eye-popping three-minute video -- isn't a bad way to get the party started. Full of vivid colours, an edgy wardrobe and steamy imagery, the clip is a bonafide heatseeker. >> See it for yourself HERE.

Back by popular demand? Playwright-producer David Tulloch's turbo-charged erotic thriller Risqué will be taking up summer residence at Stages Theatreplex in New Kingston as of July 12. With the temperatures soaring, the hit play certainly fits right into the cultural landscape du jour. The same goes for Jambiz's Ladies of the Night, premiering this weekend at Centrestage and Keiran King's Taboo, scheduled to open at UWI's Philip Sherlock Centre next Friday. 

Last time we checked, the planned modern-day update of The Harder They Come and the Shottas sequel were in pre-production, but that was close to a year ago. So what's the latest? Will these buzzworthy projects ever see the light of day? Stay tuned....
