Tifa releases three new singles

TifaAcclaimed Dancehall artist, Tifa has released new material aimed to show off her sex appeal and talk down to her critics in the same breath.

The popular deejay has released her newest track, Inside Me, containing sexually enticing content as she shows her softer side. The single, produced by UIM Records is based on personal experience, she says.

“The inspiration for Inside Me came from a past relationship and how our encounters made me feel,” Tifa said in a statement.

It is the second time Tifa has worked with UIM, previously starring on the collaborative track, Fresh To Death (Remix), featuring fellow divas Tami Chynn, Timberlee, Natalie Storm, Stacious and Keida.

Another new single, Taste Good speaks to how her name is always in someone else’s mouth, in some way responding to the recent speculation surrounding her in recent months.

“I’m a public figure, so I’m always going to be at the helm of unnecessary critics,” she said of the song, produced by Washroom Entertainment.

A third track, Hypocrite Friends was produced by long-time producers and mentors, Ward 21. The single’s theme focuses mainly on the issue of loyalty.

Hypocrite Smile is coming from my heart, and everyone can identify with this song, because we all have those experiences where friends will betray you,” she said. “Even your own family will hurt you deeply. What I am talking about I’ve already gone through.”

Tifa says videos for the aforementioned singles are forthcoming as she continues to build momentum for her soon-to-be released debut album.

“The feedback on all the songs has been great,” she said. “We will be doing a couple of videos between those released and for some unreleased tracks from the upcoming album. It’s going to be a scorching summer.”

Meanwhile, Tifa has been named the new brand ambassador for Stewart Motors Ltd., adding to her similar roles with telecommunications giant, Digicel and soda company, Bigga Soft Drink.

Top 10: Jamaican music industry’s sexiest female personalities

To leave an indelible mark within the Dancehall/Reggae industry, you not only have to showcase outright skill and determination but also have some amount of sex appeal.

The combination of a delightful personality, sharp intellect and attractive figure allows females who ply their trade within the local music industry to build strong fan bases while acclimating deserved accolades. From artistes to media personalities and even dancers, the Dancehall/Reggae industry has produced several females who’ve embodied said sentiments. Ten in particular currently personify those qualities; acquiring mass popularity in the process.

10. Mystic Davis: Dancers are wholeheartedly unappreciated within the Dancehall/Reggae framework as they’re considered as the background in many music videos. However, Mystic Davis possibly defies that logic. With unbelievable flexibility showcased throughout her craft and an hourglass shape to match, Davis hails as arguably the most popular dancer in Jamaica and possibly the Caribbean.

With videos such as Vybz Kartel’s Go Go Wine, Sean Kingston and Nicki Minaj’s Letting Go and several others on her resume, Davis stands out in ways which many other dancers would become side elements. Plus, if you’ve ever watched her perform live in short shorts, you’d see why.

 

 

 

9. D’Angel: Despite a turbulent six months that included her divorce from Beenie Man, model turned Dancehall artiste, D’Angel still continues to prove that she’s one of the genre’s sexiest divas. Songs such as Blaze, Come Over amongst others have showcased that fusion of made-for-runway looks as well as lyrical dexterity, making her one of Dancehall’s most respected acts.

Though she did lose some popularity amongst fans since the divorce, she still hasn’t lost the qualities which made her attractive since her debut in 2005: Independence, beauty and intellect, all of which make her an interesting catch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8. Tiana – Perhaps the fastest rising female artiste in quite some time, Tiana not only made herself relevant within the Dancehall ranks, she asserted a strong presence in the industry. She made no stronger announcement as a potential superstar than with the release of Pum Pum Phat, a remake of Popcaan’s chart-topping smash, Ravin’. The risqué single showcased a hardcore, sexually appeasing side of the self-proclaimed “Princess of Dancehall” that fans never saw previously, making this curvaceous diva a household name.

Additionally, an unheard of 11 videos including Bruk Out and Whine and Gyal Mi Luv Yuh (featuring Konshens) as well her intellect; shown while making a defiant stance against what she described a ‘sexist’ music industry labeled her as a very reputable force. A deejay of the year candidate and upcoming superstar, her resume seemingly could include several more accolades going forward.

 

 

 

7. Pepita Little: Though currently out of a job after her recent release from the Television Jamaica (TVJ) show, Intense, it’s inconceivable to think that Pepita Little aka Chica Pepita won’t find her way back onto everyone’s television screen sooner rather than later.

For three years, her bubbly personality, easy-going approach to her hosting duties and a bust line that’s hard to ignore made her a popular figure within the industry. Additionally, she served as a backstage host on Digicel Rising Stars and copped a Youth View Awards nomination for Media Personality of the Year.

Despite her recent setback, Pepita has returned to spotlight in strong fashion with the release of her highly acclaimed debut single, Luv Luv Me. Given her versatility there’s no doubt that this is only the beginning of Pepita’s journey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Timberlee: Sexy in two different personalities, posh and gangstress, Timberlee attracts several eyes and ears with her sultry vocals and class-personified physical attributes. Both personalities were on full display during her single on the female-dominated Bedroom Riddim with the single, Inna Mi Bedroom.

A shape to behold with confidence displayed in several singles such as Bubble Like Soup and Heels, Timberlee remains a sex symbol with her crafty word play and accompanying physical attributes.

 

 

 

5. Stacious: Similar to Timberlee, Stacious’ thought-provoking physique makes her easily identifiable figure within the local music industry. Often known for her pulsating singles and racy dressing in videos, Stacious earned comparisons to the “Queen of Dancehall,” Lady Saw, who rose to prominence for similar antics.

Additionally, Stacious’ lyrics back up said comparison as past singles such as Goodaz Clap and Make It Snappy as well as more recent singles like Come Into My Room (alongside Mavado) and Got It Like That.

 

 

 

4. Tifa: Perhaps the best at her musical craft amongst females, Tifa continues to dazzle fans, male and female, with her strong physical attributes while continuing to unleash smash hits. As her videos for Move Yuh Body and Get Flat proved last year, Tifa has a unique, classy fashion sense. Combine that with her no-holds barred lyrical display, and this prominent diva has stamped her authority on the Jamaican music framework.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Ce’Cile: It’s hard to believe that Ce’Cile has been in the mainstream spotlight for over ten years now as she seemingly hasn’t aged. An obviously attractive and sensual persona made the singjay one of Jamaica’s musical stalwarts.

Never afraid to show off her smooth skin, Ce’Cile embraced the sex symbol status with videos like Hot Like We, Hot Like That and several others. Permanent eye candy in her own right, she continues to stay relevant within an ever changing Jamaican music framework; recently releasing the highly acclaimed album, Jamaicanization.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Tami Chynn: Dancehall singjay, Wayne Marshall must feel like the luckiest man on Earth as he has the sensual songstress, Tami Chynn to proudly boast as his wife. Chynn never ceases to amaze onlookers with her natural beauty and heartwarming vocals.

Classic songs such as Over and Over, Hyperventilating and Certified Diva, featuring the aforementioned Tifa, had fans locked into her presence. An effervescent sense of style, class and wit made Chynn a very lovable figure. A musician, host or a part-time charity worker, Chynn’s place as an internationally-regarded superstar will forever remain. Plus, as she proved with Neva Know, she has some spice to her also.

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Yanique Barrett: Jamaican music fans have only known her for a short time, but certainly there’s a long list of men who’ve surely kept this media personality on their watch.Debuting as host of Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall in March 2011, Yanique Barrett quickly won over fans of the highly regarded talent show with her curvaceous figure, outgoing personality and several sexy dance moves. Now earning strong acclaim for her strong work and intellect, Barrett continues to spread her wings as a host/presenter as she also co-hosts E-Blaze on FAME FM as well as RETV 5 to 7 Live.The only sad part about this young starlet, for her male fans anyway, is that she’s already married. If you listen closely, the collective sighs from men can be heard worldwide.

MackaTifa - IRAWMA 2011

Who was the best female deejay in 2011?

Looking back on a rather eventful 2011 in Dancehall, many things changed the face of the genre but one thing remained the same: females still had to fight for their deserved attention.

This year’s seen a greater collective effort by female deejays to make themselves triumphantly heard, with several female-dominated projects hitting the airwaves such as the Star Girl Riddim and the critically-acclaimed, Bedroom Riddim. Additionally, there were a slew of counteractions as well as a strong statement made by one of Dancehall emerging acts; demanding that females get treated equally within the industry.

Five artistes in particular made strong statements within the industry in 2011; asserting themselves as Dancehall mainstays as well introducing wide varieties for fans to enjoy.

As usual, the self-proclaimed “Queen of Dancehall,” Lady Saw graced the industry with her no-holds-barred persona; proving she still has plenty left in her lyrical arsenal. In particular, her single, Wife a Wife on the internationally-acclaimed, Matrimoney Riddim showed that she remains a high-demand artiste who refused to be intimidated by her peers as well as the opposite sex. Though Lady Saw’s more current singles lack the amount of desired airplay, she continued to rule the streets with songs such as Caan Dweet, Love Sick on the highly-acclaimed Overproof Riddim as well as Matrimoney one the popular Matrimoney Riddim; showing that her essence still hasn’t worn off.

Spice also showed her flexibility in 2011; deciding to build on the continued success of her 2010 chart-topper, Jim Screechie by elevating her status overseas. She achieved just that with the release of the Equiknoxx Music produced, Fun (Remix) alongside hip-hop superstar, Missy Elliott that was well-received locally and in the United States. She also collaborated with American R&B songstress, Mya and Jamaican-American songstress, Barbee. Staying true to her roots, Spice continued making hit tracks with efforts such as, Hot Patty Wine, Put It Pan Mi and the thought-provoking song, My Boyfriend Dick; proving her raunchy persona remains alive and well.

Another diva making an international splash of some sort is veteran deejay, Macka Diamond, whose latest single, Wine premiered on WorldStarHipHop’s website last month and whose new album, Don’t Disturb Mi was released in the U.S. in early November. However, her biggest success was thanks to a popular dance single, introducing Jamaica to the Cowfoot dance. The song was an instant sensation locally and overseas, proving her versatility once more whilst earning over 155,000 YouTube views since its release this past winter. On the contrary, Cowfoot ignited one of the strangest beefs of 2011; feuding with former Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall favourite, Tanto Blacks regarding the origin of the dance. After exchanging a few diss tracks, their feud seemingly has cooled off but showcased a rare battle of the sexes that, for a while, had fans captivated.

A usual suspect for Female deejay of the year, Tifa continued to repay her fans’ trust; unveiling praiseworthy singles with catchy punch lines and innovative videos to accompany them. That was never more evident that the release of her single, Get Flat; featuring an engaging dance concept for it accompanying video while earning some acclaim for the song itself. Tifa also featured on the self-worth promoting single, Swaggin’ alongside Wayne Marshall and Future Fambo whilst gracing the aforementioned Matrimoney Riddim with her single, Wedding Chapel. Her most recent hit single, Dash Out, on the Overproof Riddim has earned her the most notice and airplay; attaining nearly 80,000 YouTube views in just less than three months and is regarded as one of the best songs on the Riddim. Her resume’ this year warrants serious consideration for several end-of-year awards that would be full-deserved should she win them.

However, one female deejay’s star rose in 2011 rather quickly; amassing recognition locally and internationally with her improvisation musically and taking a stand against a male-dominated genre. The self-professed “Queen of Dancehall,” Tiana may not be one the first names uttered when considering Dancehall of the Year nominations, but her resume’ this year actually merits such an honor.

Tiana’s remix of Popcaan’s club anthem, Ravin’ that drew mass attention to her. Pum Pum Phat, a sexually charged remix of Popcaan’s internationally-acclaimed single, removed a great level of anonymity attached to her amongst Dancehall observers; earning over 200,000 YouTube views for the effort alone in the last three months since its release as well as several plays across parties worldwide.

Tiana also produced a strong effort on the Overproof Riddim with the release of her song, Bruck Out and Whine which has achieved half of Pum Pum Phat’s total views as well as the pulsating collaboration, Gyal Mi Love Yuh alongside Dancehall/Reggae superstar, Konshens which performed well on several local charts. What makes her the prime deejay of the year candidate amongst females, however, is the fact that she’s unveiled a plethora of well-received music videos this year; 11 in total, which is an unheard of number for any artiste of either sex; showing strong work ethic and promotional savvy.

Furthermore, her comments condemning what she labeled a “sexist” industry; earned her strong clout as a spokesperson for females within the genre looking for respect locally. After making such a profound statement and releasing the single, Love My Life to further reinforce her point, her fan base grew along with respect amongst her peers.

Though Tiana may not be the most popular female act within the Dancehall fraternity, such a diverse list of achievements arguably makes her the most logical choice as female deejay of the year.
