Exclusive Listen to Tessanne Chin Go Old School RnB on New Single Fire

Jamaican singer Tessanne Chin has long had an affinity for retro sounds — after all, her breakout performance on season five of The Voice (which she eventually won) was a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”

Now, Chin returns to the 70′s with her throwback track “Fire,” a classic-sounding R&B tune that showcases her undeniable voice. “It’s a soulful power anthem and a reminder to never sell yourself short,” Chin tells Billboard, “to keep your standards high as well as your self-worth.

“The whole experience of creating and writing this song was just so organic and real,” Chin continues. “It took me back to the music and an era that I absolutely love and respect.”

Going back to basics was one of Chin’s favorite parts of writing and recording “Fire.” “We were all in a live room clapping and stomping our heels around a mic to the beat to add that extra bit of realness to it,” she says. “It was so much fun.”

Premiere Katy Tiz Jus Whistle While You Work It ft Shaggy and Inner Circle Remix

Katy Tiz burst out with, well…a bang last year with “The Big Bang” (ah-HA!), and now she’s whistling her way right back into our ears.

The rising singer’s been hard at work (whistlin’ all the way, of course) her way all around the country at the top of 2015 to promote her current single “Whistle (While You Work It),” an infectious slice of peppy, clap-happy pop. The song’s been steadily climbing on pop radio in the past few months, and the singer’s been keeping that momentum going by supplying a bunch of different renditions and remixes of the fresh, feel-good song.

The latest take on the track? A remix featuring prolific Jamaican reggae troupe Inner Circle and none other than Shaggy – yes, that’s “It Wasn’t Me” Shaggy – which adds a relaxed, well-timed reggaeton touch to the track in time for the impending summer season.

“Tomorrow is another day so ever give up or take your smile away,” Shaggy sagely advices across the reinvented track, helping to drive home the overall uplifting message of the song: Whistle your way right through those tough times and smile while you’re hurting, y’all.

“Reggae will always remind me of good times with friends and family in the UK. This song lyrically is really close to my heart and I’m very proud of this remix,” Katy tells us of the track.

We’re happy to bring you the premiere of Katy Tiz’s “Jus’ Whistle (While You Work It)” featuring Shaggy and Inner Circle.

Listen to the track up top, and let us know if it’s got you whistlin’ your way through work today too.

Sean Hayes and his husband, Scott Icenogle, have recorded another lip-sync video just in time for Mother’s Day.

In the clip posted to Hayes’ Facebook page on Tuesday, the pair sing along to “Mama” by LunchMoney Lewis.

“We’re proud Mama’s boys,” Hayes, 44, captioned the video.

In the clip, the former Will & Grace star takes the lip-sync lead, while Icenogle provides accompaniment, and even slaps on a wig as he channels Hayes’ mom.

As the lyrics say, the song is a celebration of all mamas, grandmamas, great-grandmamas, stepmamas, single mamas, all the mamas working more than one job, and mamas all over the world.

And the video ends with the pair showing off pics of their own moms.

LunchMoney time! Miami rapper’s family talks ‘Bills’

His debut single, Bills, a shout-out to workaday folks hustling to make money, is moving up the charts faster than the swipe of a credit card.

Born Gamal Lewis, the North Miami native is stepping into the spotlight – last week’s appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Kimmel comes to mind – after cutting his teeth in the music biz helping write songs for such pop acts as Jessie J (Burnin’ Up), Fifth Harmony (Bo$$) and Juicy J (Scholarship).

So how did this peppy ditty – released in February on Dr. Luke’s label with Sony Entertainment, Kemosabe Records – come to be?

“I literally just started scatting the melody to the first verse and throwing words in there,” the L.A.-based Lewis told USA Today of the song, produced by Ricky Reed, best known for Jason Derulo’sTalk Dirty. “We were all just throwing it against the wall. The song kind of wrote itself.”

Talent runs in the family. The Miami Beach High grad’s half brother Abebe Lewis is a local producer; dad Ian and uncle Roger Lewis of the reggae group Inner Circle wrote such classics asBad Boys, the theme for Cops (most recently featured in the Mall Cop 2 movie) and Sweat (A La La Long).

“We call ourselves Jamericans; we have Jamaican roots but were raised in America,” says Abebe.

“People know about the Marley family but not necessarily the Lewis family. We are out there, too.”

Abebe, 38, runs Circle House Studios, specializing in remixes with major artists. The location is kept private due to previous paparazzi issues. “It got a little crazy,” Ian says, laughing. “That was my first experience with all that stuff.”

Both Ian and Abebe are super proud of LunchMoney. And big bro thinks he knows the appeal of the 27-year-old’s chart topper.

“Hey, everybody’s got bills, you know?”
