Queen of the Dancehall Lady Saw will be releasing her next album, ‘My Way’ on September 7 with Toasting Music/Diva Records, and will be distributed by Fontana/Universal.
My Way follows the 2007 release Walk Out, her final album on the reggae label VP Records. Her latest collection, featuring collaborations with rapper Eve and Ding Dong as well as production by Lady Saw along with Tony ‘CD’ Kelly, Lloyd ‘John John’ James, Danny Browne and Stephen McGregor, opens a new chapter for Saw and Divas Records productions.
independence and freedom
In a release the female deejay said, “I wanted to have the independence and freedom to do things 100 per cent my way. I can tell the producers what I want for my rhythm and say what I want to say in my songs. No one is telling me what I can or can’t do on this album.”
Born Marion Hall, Lady Saw remains true to her sexually empowering, cheeky lyricism on My Way. Whether it’s liberating anthems like Every Way Mi Go and Party Til December or her no-holds-bar delivery on Muscle Control and 5 Minutes, the 16-track collection is jam-packed with the rugged and raw style that put Saw on the map with her 1994 debut release Lover Girl.
Saw also gives listeners a glimpse of Miss Marion Hall, her softer, more mature side, on the title track My Way and I Am A Woman.
With Tripple Platinum status and a Grammy under her belt for her collaboration with No Doubt in Underneath it All, Lady Saw is one of the most distinguishing images in both hip-hop and reggae.
The songtress, deejay, producer and writer continues to headline shows worldwide, and her longevity reveals that true artistry always stands the test of time.
The multi-talented Jamaica native has had a hand in creating hits for artistes like Beenie Man, Sizzla, Bounty Killer, Vegas, Vybz Kartel, Papa Pimp, Capleton and Spragga Benz. Her appeal has also resulted in dynamic collaborations with Gwen Stefani, Missy Elliot, Remy Ma, Trina, Nicki Minaj, Foxy Brown Michael Franti, and Pharrell Williams.
