LISTEN UP: Four sizzling tracks (reggae/pop/soul) to add to your weekend playlist

Tessanne Chin: "Tumbling Down" 
Marking the reggae-rock songbird's first single since winning The Voice, the triumphant tune (in spite of its bleak title) is a sensational slice of soft-rock heaven about mending the inner workings of a relationship. Tess sounds great over a pulsating beat as her vocals swoop and soar and caress. Take a listen. 

Duane Stephenson: "Rasta for I" 
Few new-generation singer-songwriters in the reggae industry match Stephenson when it comes to blending socially uplifting anthems with sheer vocal power. A most worthy addition to his impressive body of work, and the first single off his forthcoming CD, this memorable track is a signature balance of potent message and powerful singing. Take a listen. 

Aisha Davis: "When You Hold Me" 
Bringing a sultry touch to this her latest solo track, Davis exudes an air of warm seduction and relatability as she gives voice to romantic longing. The lyrics may be average but the vibe of the song is just groovily appealing. Take a listen. 

Chronixx: "Prayer" 
The reggae warrior follows up his string of conscious 2013 hits with a spiritually-inclined single that considers the timeless import of divine guidance and down-on-your-knees supplication. It's a refreshing cut from one of the most fearless young musicians of this modern Jamaican generation. Take a listen.
