Tarrus Riley makes his Billboard Hot 100 debut

Tarrus Riley has made it to the Billboard Hot 100 music chart with a recording entitled "Powerful" which features Major Lazer and Ellie Goulding. "Powerful" currently sits at #95 and is expected to climb further on this chart. 

Billboard describe the track as a "sweeping anthem" that combined old-school RnB with the "dancehall-ready sound" of Major Lazer and credited Riley for keeping things, "in line with Jamaican musical roots."  "Powerful" is a fusion of Reggae and Pop, both Tarrus Riley and Ellie Goulding recorded separately but Riley said the overall project is just, "magic"

Morgan Heritage's 1st Lady Una Morgan near death experience

Una Morgan
The Morgan Heritage clan's only female member Una Morgan, experienced a near death situation recently while on the historic Catch a Fire tour that brought together two of reggae music's most prominent family/bands, Morgan Heritage and the Marleys (Damian and Stephen Marley) as well as one of the sons of  a founding member of Reggae who is also a music stalwart himself, Tarrus Riley.

According to a release, Una Morgan suddenly became ill and was admitted in hospital where she went into cardiac arrest and flat-lined. After spending a week in the hospital, Una's health deteriorated. She had been suffering from a pre-existing thyroid disease which caused congestive heart failure and an abnormal heart rhythm medically known as an atrial fibrillation.

As news broke of her ill health, Una taught it necessary to inform her friends and fans of her health issues and released a statement:-
"To my friends and fans around the world who have been asking where is Una, I want to say first praises be upon the most high in Zion for the second chance he has given me at life. Every day since my release from the hospital tears have filled my eyes and my heart thinking what life would have been like for my children, family and friends if it was really my time. To all please, please do not take for granted or ignore what your spirit and body is trying to tell you. They will never lead you wrong. I want to say to those who knew of my condition thank you from the bottom of my heart for your prayers, and to those who are just now hearing, just know that I am blessed and healing everyday."

Besides touring with her siblings, Una was in the mid of adding the finishing touches on her debut solo album, "The Evolution of Me," a musical biography with self-reflection songs and life's observations penned by Una, as well as gearing up for a December release "Una" by Una Morgan, a fragrance part of household items. Creating her own exotic signature, "Una" by Una Morgan is an enticing, mouth-watering fragrance that emits a fierce, feminine energy. The intoxicating fragrance is a memorable scent of fresh clean air with a sparkling blend of luscious tropical fruits. With a signature vintage glass flacon both mimicking the sensual curves of a woman's body, while representing the circle means eternity and unity, "Una" will be released in 2016.

A loving mother, dedicated daughter, proud sister, prolific songwriter, entrepreneur and philanthropist (Una has a personal commitment to raise awareness to the cause of hyperthyroidism, and will be building a hospital on her beloved island of Jamaica), Una Morgan's remarkable journey is just beginning "Everyone I look towards and wish you all a blessed healthy prosperous 2016. See you soon." - Una.
