The official Video World Premiere/Launch party was held this weekend, at the popular Aura Lounge in Kingston, Jamaica, which happens to also be a business venture of the artiste. The video was directed by Terminal 4 Media and is sure to engage audience with the suggestively controversial storyline..sure to get the ladies moving:)

The artiste’s strong yet, feminine voice on the catchy rhythm, the sophisticated yet tasteful styling and hardcore lyrics accessorized with a touch of elegance and a bit of controversy (lol) are all a good look for a new artiste.’Power in a pint’ as they would say in the islands….looking forward to hearing more from this artiste.
