Beenie Man & Hezron

A new generation of fans have been gifted with the opportunity to rock to a dancehall version ‘Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,’ the classic 1966 dance number by The Temptations by Hezron and Beenie Man.

Produced by Pot of Gold Production for Tad’s International Record, Hezron & Beenie Man’s rendition of ‘Ain’t Too Proud to Beg’ is a DJ’s musical delight. Hezron does justice to David Ruffin’s earnest plea for his lover to give him another chance. And the doctor, Beenie Man, showcases his groovy vibes, which is a signature feature of collaborations with this Jamaican musical connoisseur.

Beenie Man complements Hezron’s smoky vocals with a toast big on swag to the melody of Teddy Pendergrass’ 1978 hit song, ‘When Somebody Loves You Back’. The blend of soul, Rhythm and Blues and dancehall makes ‘Ain’t Too Proud to Beg’ a certain hit in diverse markets. Hezron is a stalwart of the Tad’s International Record camp. He has released several well-received songs for the label including ‘Natural Woman’, ‘Save The Children’ and ‘I Shall be Released’ (with Big Youth).

For ‘Ain’t Too Proud to Beg’, Hezron teams with Grammy winner Beenie Man, a dancehall legend whose countless hits include ‘Slam’, ‘Nuff Gal’, ‘Oyster And Conch’, ‘Who Am I’ and ‘Dude.’

Antaeus Returns With “Athena

Fresh off his Grammy win with Julian Marley, acclaimed artist and music producer Antaeus returns with “Athena,” the eagerly awaited follow-up to his global hit “Byzantine Meditation.”

This captivating new track showcases a mesmerizing performance by Greek-Canadian vocalist Christina Ralli, whose ethereal vocals, invoking the Ancient Greek word “Onar” (meaning a dream or vision), infuse the song with a haunting allure and emotive resonance that captivates listeners.

Athena, the ancient Greek goddess of wisdom, handicraft, and warfare (though not war itself), embodies the intellectual and civilized aspects of conflict, representing virtues such as justice, skill, and prudent restraint. The track draws inspiration from Athena’s symbolism, including the owl and the olive tree, while paying homage to her significance in Greek mythology.
