With an organic social following of over 400 thousand fans from the pacific islands of Samoa and Hawaii, Japan, USA and his new found Caribbean fans Iakopo wanted to stay true to the island feel in the video. Iakopo was keen on using Montego Bay as his prime location as its the home of his local label support, Cottage 9 Inc., wanting to present something different from what he has seen as reference tourist experience.
Supernatural also features leading talent Nicollette Gomex, a local model, who spirit and acting skills were a perfect fit for the energy of a supernatural connection. “Nicolette has that chill, playful, yet independent spirit that is evident in females within Jamaica,” he continued “he ability to immerse into the role and connect with lyrics is evident on screen, consequently bringing the story to life.”
Super Natural Video was shot on several locations in the parish of Montego Bay, St. James (Jamaica), capturing both natural and scenic moods, spaces and locations, such as the a famed Round Hill Hotel and Martha Brea River etc. The video was co-directed by Stylez and HDBoys, who both are based in the US but has strong ties in Kingston, Jamaica. The video took several days of shooting in order to fully capture the Islands’ natural beauty, mood, lighting and energy showcasing the intended cinematography and storytelling. Special mention sould be given to whereby Mr. Andrew McGlone, who provided airial drone shots, iakopo felt that his experience whilst in Jamaica was somewhat of a supernatural experience and as such the video is a fitting visual portrayal of the experienc

OMI's 'Cheerleader' Back to No. 1 on Hot 100 - @omimusiconline

OMI’s ‘Cheerleader’ charges back to the top of the Billboard Hot 100.

UPDATED Aug. 18, 2:15 p.m.: This story has been updated to reflect new chart data, which was reprocessed by Nielsen Music following the story’s original Monday posting. As a result, Lana Del Rey’s “High By the Beach” debuts at No. 51 on the Billboard Hot 100 instead of No. 7. On Digital Songs, it debuts at No. 10 instead of No. 1, with 67,000 sold, instead of 248,000, as originally reported. The information below has been updated to reflect corrected data.

OMI hoists his debut hit “Cheerleader” back to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, rebounding 2-1 for a fifth week in charge. The reggae/pop smash dethrones “Can’t Feel My Face” (1-2) by Hot 100 Music Festival headliner The Weeknd, which rose to No. 1 last week. As a consolation, The Weeknd adds a second top five this week, zooming 11-5 with “The Hills.”

As we do each Monday, let’s run down the top 10 and more on the Hot 100 (dated Aug. 29). (Highlights of the airplay/sales/streaming-based Hot 100 post on Billboard.com each Monday.)

“Cheerleader,” released on Louder Than Life/Ultra/Columbia, returns to the top of the Hot 100 while holding at its No. 2 peaks on both Radio Songs (149 million in audience, up 3 percent, according to Nielsen Music) and Streaming Songs (16.3 million U.S. streams, up 2 percent). On Digital Songs, which it led for four weeks, “Cheerleader” rebounds 3-2 (119,000 downloads sold, down 8 percent, in the week ending Aug. 13).

At five weeks on top for “Cheerleader,” OMI boasts the longest-leading reggae No. 1 on the Hot 100 by a solo male in more than 22 years. The last reggae ruler by a solo male to reign longer? Snow’s “Informer,” which led for seven weeks in March-April 1993. Among all acts, the last reggae No. 1 to spend more than four weeks on top: MAGIC!’s “Rude” (six weeks) last summer.

“I woke up humming the melody one morning when I was 21,” OMI (born Omar Samuel Pasley), 29, recently told Billboard of “Cheerleader.” “It was like a little Jamaican nursery rhyme, like ‘one, two, buckle my shoe,’ that kind of thing. The rest of the song just fell into place like a jigsaw puzzle.”

Iakopo has a Super Natural Effect on Jamaica - @iakopomusic @IAMTHESHANZ

iakopo-supernaturalIakopo new single ‘Supernatural’ has drawn much attention on local airwaves this week, has he makes he media rounds for audio promotion. On his recent stop on Tuesday to HITZ 92 FM (a member of the RJR group) with DJ Izahbing, the energy in studio was amazing as fans from all over the country got a chance to learn about his musical journey. The fans got an opportunity to hear his music as well as live vocal prowess on live air, causing much attention to his social media post the interview.

Iakopo is a culturally enriched talent, a native of California (USA), who fell in love with a sound and lifestyle undefined by geography. At an early age, Iakopo (pronounced YAH-KO-POW) was transplanted to the pacific islands- Samoa, then later on to Hawaii, where he has led a reggae infused and influenced lifestyle. Hence, his development and progression to the exploration of reggae as a genre and more so to Jamaica was a matter or destiny rather than choice. After staking his claim and finding success in Hawaii, he was once again culturally transplanted into in another mecca of reggae- Japan, where was signed to Universal Japan and Sony Music Japan, where he has spent the last five (5) years building an envious fan base, perfecting his sound and image, as well as mapping his career course to where he is now, here in Kingston, Jamaica.

With his childhood influences being the likes of reggae legends UB40 etc, and coming to the home of Bob Marley and other iconic reggae stars, Iakopo found a musical partnership with Morgan Heritage (specifically Gramps Morgan, who produced the track) based on the recommendation of a friend. This project saw him making his way to Kingston and Montego Bay and the end product is a stellar track titled ‘Super Natural’ poised for greater attention and success, he see this as the calm before the musical storm. ‘Supernatural’ was a logical title for the project, as the lyrics flowed from elements such as the wind, earth and water, complimented with a sweet instrumental which proved fitting.

On arrival in Kingston in February, the final product ready in March/April, Iakopo is bursting with excitement at the prospects of reaching and connecting with the ears, hearts, mind and souls of the Jamaican audience. This has been evident this week, as he sits down with several media houses and offered them the opportunity to listen objectively to the track as well as follow-up projects. The reviews and critics have been overwhelmingly positive, paired with an imminent release of the accompanying video in upcoming weeks, all ears and eyes are set to see where his next steps will be.

Not to spoil it though, Iakopo returns to Japan this week where he commences his summer tour headlining venues with sold out events with 40,000+ stadium capacity. Given his new found experiences, projects and Jamaican culture admixed firmly into his music and  passion complimented by his unique sound, we are sure festival goers in Japan will have an amazing musical experience. Iakopo manager Stylez, of Blaze Entertainment Records, is just as excited about the direction his music is taking both him as a talent, but the overall quality of the team as well. Stylez cited that the next coming weeks are exciting, with the kind of opportunities to come, and plans for extensive media presence by Iakopo.

Judge allows rapper Rick Ross to travel for concerts

Rick-RossBy Alexis StevensThe Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Rapper Rick Ross will be allowed to leave Georgia so he can attend his concerts, a Fayette County judge ruled Thursday afternoon.

He’ll have restrictions though, including providing his itinerary to the district attorney’s office. He also must return home within two hours when he returns to Georgia.

But it was a win for the rapper, whose real name is William Roberts, who will be able to go on tour.

“Feels real good just to go out,” Ross told Channel 2 Action News. “Everybody that supported you, your fans. And everybody that’s been sending their love.”

Ross was in court on charges stemming from his second of two arrests. Ross, 39, was arrested June 24 after allegedly assaulting two service workers who threw a party in his home without the rapper’s permission. Ross was charged with aggravated assaulted, aggravated battery and kidnapping in the June 4 incident at his sprawling 235-acre estate.

Ross and his bodyguard, Nadrian James, allegedly took two men into the guest house on the property and attacked them, according to police. Ross allegedly beat one man in the head and face with a Glock handgun, causing extensive injuries.

The rapper bought the palatial estate formerly owned by Holyfield for $5.8 million in January 2014. The house has 109 rooms, a movie theater, an Olympic-size swimming pool and a separate 4,000-square-foot guest home. As part of his bond conditions, Ross agreed to forfeit ownership of the estate if he violated a judge’s orders.

The alleged assault was Ross’ second run-in with Fayette law enforcement in a matter of weeks. On June 10, he was arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana charge for five joints that police allegedly found in his car.

The founder of Maybach Music Group, Ross is perhaps best known for his 2006 single “Hustlin’.”
