NEW MUSIC REVIEW: Hear these fresh tracks from Maxi Priest, Sevana, Lila Iké and Sean Paul

>> Maxi Priest feat. Shaggy – “I’m Alright”
These two entertainment legends first worked together on the smash hit “Close to You.” Nearly two decades later, their chemistry feels as fresh as ever on this funky, repeat-worthy duet (off Maxi Priest’s upcoming album) that’s all about surrendering to the magic of melodies, riffs and harmonies. When Maxi declares, “My heart beats to the music,” you have to believe him. [A-]

>> Sevana – “Nobody Man”
We’ve always had a certain respect for strong, independent women who speak their mind. Sevana fits the bill, and on this feisty, mid-tempo jam, the fast-rising singer-songwriter and talented vocalist comes across as a sister who knows her worth and refuses to settle for less than the best. What’s more, she emphasizes, you can’t put a price on class and self-esteem. [B+]

>> Sean Paul feat. Squash – “Life We Living”
Creating a chill vibe, Sean Paul and Squash trade rhymes on this smooth, mid-tempo club banger that references everything from seductive senoritas to high grade and champagne to treating every day like a holiday. It’s easy to envy these big spender who are clearly from the YOLO school of thought. [B+]

>> Lila Iké – Where I’m Coming
From With her breakout hit “Second Chance” and her guest spot on Protoje’s “Not Another Word,” bonafide rising star Lila Iké put reggae lovers on notice. She’s back with this rootsy gem about substance over hype and keeping it real with yourself and others. A melodic fusion of honour and humility. [A]
