Miss Str8 is the hot newcomer to the dancehall circuit. Based in Austria, where she has made a name for herself and has performed alongside top Dancehall superstars, she’s now looking forward to acquire the same prominence in the country of her birth.
She is ready with a strong desire for that mainstream acceptance from the global capital of Reggae and Dancehall music, Jamaica.
The recording artiste obtained the moniker, Miss Str8, from her candid personality. “Though I’m a very jovial person, I am very straightforward with a zero tolerance when disrespect comes in. I am a focused musician and that’s extremely important in this male-dominated industry, in order to be a respected female performer,” she explained.
Her debut single, ‘Nuh Care’, was released in 2010. This presented opportunities to showcase her remarkable stage presence. Ultimately, she was able to demonstrate her prowess in not only singing but her dancing abilities as well. The songs Summertime, Stay Strong and Bad Nuh followed and became well known in most European countries, creating a strong fan base for the singer primarily in Austria, Germany and Italy.
Her most recent track, ‘Ova Me’, is composed by Austria-based Tom Hype production on their Four Corners rhythm. The video will be premiered later this month on VEVO.
Downsound Records female Deejay, Ishawna recently flamed up in the media, with her recent highly publicized break-up with partner and ex-co-worker international DJ Selector Foota Hype.
She has admitted in various Media outlets, that ‘Restraining Order’ was indeed written about her ex, and is not the first song she has written about her alleged unhappiness in their nine year long relationship.
The song was also allegedly the reason for the end of the Employer-Employee relationship between Foota Hype and Downsound Records, who are also the producers of the controversial tune. Foota felt the song was a betrayal, considering he too (as well as Ishawna) was also a part of the label.
