    "Reggae Sweetheart"

    Kadion Lewise, better known as Omeil, is originally from Kingston, Jamaica. She is best known to WSVNRadio as a member of its Hall of Fame, Volume 10, and was also voted having the best song from Volume 10 on The Best Of The WSVNRadio Hall Of Fame. Classifying her music as Reggae, it's actually Reggae sounding vocalization, with today's up-to-date R&B/Hip-Hop music. Reggae Sweetheart is Omeil's debut, and it easily fits today's Hip-Hop/Rap culture.

    There are songs on Reggae Sweetheart that has a more Hip-Hop style, to those of Reggae. This lead-off track, "Hot Girls," (a song that was featured on WSVN's Volume 10), has a more Hip-Hop feel, as well as the following tracks, "Weh U Up 2" and "Boyrfriend." "Strive" captures the more current decade Reggae, as her vocals throughout this album easily compares to that of Sean Paul. "Fret" mixes both

    Another artist comes to mind from today's popular artists, is Shakira. "Party In The Place" has a upbeat comparison to Shakira, and most of the songs on this CD can be compared to Shakira as well. "Won't Stop," "Step Back," "Girls," "Safe Sex all fits the Hip-Hop style. Likewise, "Bad Girls," "Making Your Own Money," "Hold Pan Him." "Padlock" may have a bit of a softer side to the previous songs mentioned. The last track (hidden) is a bonus track, "Lonely," a song that continues the Hip-Hop/Reggae style Omeil portrays throughout her CD.

    Reggae Sweetheart fits today's Pop/Hip-Hop world. Her style does not match true Reggae artists, such as Bob Marley. The vocals of Omeil does have the Jamaican feel, as today's Hip-Hop has artists such as Sean Paul, Shakira, and even another artist who had this "Rap meets Reggae" vocal style, Snow ("Informer." Appealing to the more younger crowd, Omeil will easily be a hit with today's Pop culture. Reggae Sweetheart does give you a warm feeling as the Jamaican Reggae music has done in the past. Older folks (as myself) expect Reggae as to that of Bob Marley, yet today's Reggae, and likewise music in general, gets an updated effect. Artists such as Sean Paul, Shakira, and Omeil trend to the current times, by making their own music unique, and standing out for other (younger) fans to catch their attention, and enjoy their music.
