Spice to drop all-female dancehall rhythm
Spice's announcement that she will be producing an all-female rhythm has been met with approval by fellow dancehall artistes who say it will help to advance the position of women in the business.
Dancehall has long been dominated by male artistes. However, with Spice's all-female rhythm, the genre perhaps may see a shift in the landscape.
Pamputtae is already looking forward to being on the rhythm.
"A nuh if nor but, mi a guh deh pon it," said Pamputtae, who was last year included in Nicki Minaj's Fine9 remix of Skeng's Lickle Miss. That project also featured Spice, Dovey Magnum, and Lisa Mercedes.
In fact, the thought of an all-female rhythm is music to her ears.
"Honestly, people have been waiting on these things over the years, so I feel good. ... It is going to be epic!" said the It Good hitmaker.
Spice, the queen of the dancehall, urged artistes to reach out to be part of her all-female rhythm, which she said is in the works.
"Any female artiste who wants to be a part of this can email Spiceofficialqueenofdancehall@gmail.com ..................Tag who you want to be a part of this to make sure they see it," the Cool It deejay posted.
Reggae dancehall artiste Tanya Stephens gave a thumbs up to the proposal. Commenting on Spice's post, the These Streets artiste said she was ready to record her song.
"So wait @spiceoffical, weh u nuh send it to mi WhatsApp? Do it widdout me n me a war yuh," she posted.
Similarly, up-and-coming artiste Monifa Goss told THE STAR that she would love to be on the project.
"I think it is a powerful movement for females, especially coming from the queen herself. I must commend her for always trying to push another female artiste," Monifa Goss said.
The young entertainer recalls Spice giving her the opportunity to open a show for her Captured mixtape in 2019.
"I love her," she said of the queen of the dancehall.
