“#TrixStylez” is the new album by female reggae artist TriXstar. For her 10 years stage anniversary, this album is a collection of her best singles and some formerly unreleased songs, to make them available on CD. The album reflects TriXstar’s musical and stylistic diversity. From classic reggae songs like “Beautiful Day” and rock steady anthems like “Love Nuh Easy” to dancehall tracks like “New Era” you can find all shades of Jamaican popular music genres on this album. Additionally you can hear electronic and hiphop vibes on “Fly Skit” (HipHop), “Good Over Evil” (Moombahton), Beautiful Day Remix (Dubstep) and the other remixes. Guest artists Skarra Mucci and Perfect Giddimani complement this diversity.

Even if TriXstar’s lyrics are about “seeking and finding love” on the first sight, there’s much more to it when looking behind. Bob Marley sang “free yourself from mental slavery” and reminded the Jamaicans of African descent to be proud about their culture and the color of their skin and that they don’t have to bow down to society. TriXstar sings “rise up and shine” and talks to all those who feel humiliated, oppressed, and abused and encourages them to get rid of the shackles and grow beyond themselves. She especially addresses women, to strengthen them to escape gender-specific roles, become a strong member of the society and live to their full potential.

TriXstar’s music is catchy and touching. Her songs often invite to dance and take the listener on a journey to a world of love, pain, happiness, and desires. Even if most of TriXstar’s songs are from the reggae and dancehall spectrum, she is not shy to leave the boundaries of the genre and go way beyond them. The core and the strength of all songs is a vulnerable soul trying to heal itself and the people around it and therefore gives strength, power, and courage.

As a woman, TriXstar had to fight for her standing in the male-dominated reggae and dancehall scene, and also her personal story was accompanied by struggle and pain. But all that only made her stronger and let’s her stand as a strong, proud woman today, ready to take over the reggae scene. After 10 years in the music business, shows all over Europe, in Jamaica, and on some of the biggest reggae festivals in the world, “#TrixStylez” marks the transition to the next phase in her career. On the one hand a chapter get’s closed with her songs finally being available on CD, bundled as a colorful musical collection of her best singles. On the other hand she is under new management and with a new team and crew, with whom she already works on a whole new performance and show.

Besides the music, TriXstar is active in the social sector, works with refugees, and stands up for women’s rights.

Pregnant Katy Perry kicked off her week by surprising two fans with lockdown hook-ups.

The Roar singer stunned an eight-year-old British devotee, called Charlotte, when she took part in a substitute teacher skit organised by BBC Radio 1 presenter Greg James.

The youngster was woken up and told to get ready to meet her temporary at-home teacher and then shown a screen shot of Perry.

After the initial shock, Katy and Charlotte chatted about their favourite songs and snacks and Perry recorded a special message for all of Charlotte's friends, inviting them to "the world's best slumber party" once the coronavirus lockdown is over.

Perry also surprised Rhode Island ER doctor Megan Ranney and her kids as part of a Good Morning America TV segment.

Katy jumped at the chance to thank Ranney and her family for their sacrifices during the COVID-19 pandemic, joining a video chat with GMA co-host T.J. Holmes and raving about the good doctor.

"Your mom Megan is an absolute hero, aren't you so proud of her?" she asked the kids. "Your mum could join the circus; she's literally doing the best juggling act in the world. She goes to work, she deals with a lot of stuff at work and then she comes home, and I'm sure you guys are both angels."

Katy then chocked back tears as Megan told her that her song Roar was a family anthem that helps them stay strong amid the health crisis she faces every day.

Perry added: "You are so brave. We can't get through this without you... Know that I'm going to bed every single night from this call on and I'm gonna keep you in my personal prayers."

Perry also announced she will be kicking off GMA's Summer 2020 concert series, performing her new single Daisies and more from her home on Friday.
