Dancehall artiste Spice is singing a new tune for 2012 in more ways than one. The dancehall diva who is usually known for her catchy dancehall rhymes, she has flipped the script and released the reggae single, Brand New Page as her first track for the year.
The reggae song which speaks from the point of view of someone who wishes to turn his life around, undoubtedly showcases Spice’s vocal ability. Spice spoke in reference to the single which was produced by Blaqk Sheep Music on the Tropical Connection Riddim, “The song is basically talking about wrong-doers who want to make a big change in their lives and I specifically wrote it a first person narrative point of view, so that people can actually sing it as if it were their own story.”
Spice who is known for her hit singles, Ramping Shop with Vybz Kartel, Slim Versus Fluffy, Jim Screechie, Hot Patty Wine and others, says she has not made a permanent switch to reggae and singing, but “music is art and art is about self-expression, and I always like to explore new and creative beats and genres to express myself. That way it remains fun and you don’t become predictable.”
Since persons can’t predict what the spicy one may do next, she says, “The next single I can definitely tell persons to look out for which will be released at the end of this month is the hip hop track, Take Him Out alongside international singer, Mya. It’s also the single which we performed together at last year’s Reggae Sumfest shortly after it was recorded. It is also the debut single from her new album, which came out last month, while the video will also be out at the end of this month. So there are a lot of things in store, some of which are international, but I’m not yet in a position to divulge too many details. Just watch out for 2012.”
