Music on the streets

Mark and Candy, Youthlink's dynamic, straightforward duo, are back to give their views on some of the hottest songs blazing the airwaves, taking over our tubes and keeping us hype on the dance floor.

'Lovin' Fi Hours' by Jae Hemmings

@ CandywithaC: Well, to be honest, I have never heard of Jae Hemmings. Although she has a great voice to be a female dancehall artiste, this song is not a favourite of mine. The rhythm is somewhat great but the lyrics do not complement the song.

'Thinking Out Loud' by Ed Sheeran

[Verse 1]

Tashana Hutchinson, Youthlink Writer

In honour of Black History Month, I've prepared a compilation of some of the most conscious musicians/music groups from around the world.

Mr Probz

This Dutch artiste raps, produces and acts. In 2013, he released the song, Waves, which brought him great success and was remixed the following year by Robin Schulz, which made Mr Probz even more popular.
