L3 Magazine’s August issue is finally here and features one of Reggae’s most loved singers, Alaine Laughton, one of the Sound Clash arena’s most respected (and feared) sounds, King Addies and one of Jamaica’s fastest rising stars, Ajrenaline.
Speaking exclusively to Tricia ‘ZJ Sparks’ Spence, Alaine opens up to the L3 audience about maintaining her stunning physique, how prayer helps to influence her music and similarities between her and Alicia Keys. Alaine also shares a touching experience during an interview in Jambi, Kenya who was “calling about cows and goats in exchange for marriage!”
When it comes to the Sound arena, one of the most respected sounds is King Addies. Now being managed by Irish and Chin, Natasha Von Castle sat down with King Pin to talk about the expectations that Sound Clash fans have of King Addies, and the Sounds upcoming performance at World Clash in their home town of New York. The two also talk about the Biltmore era and how that helps the Sound in Clash today and the fact that “you want to win and lock off the other sound; that’s your goal.”
Ajrenaline is one of Jamaica’s fastest rising sensations, and he speaks to Tricia ‘ZJ Sparks’ Spence about music and where he is within the industry right now. How does his future look and what moves will he be making soon? All this and more are revealed!
