DANCEHALL QUEEN IS BACK

Dancehall Queen Lady Saw.

100 percent my way. I can tell the producers what I want for my riddim 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. Divas Records is a new beginning for me,” said Lady Saw.

Born Marion Hall, Lady Saw remains true to her sexually empowering, cheeky lyricism on “My Way.” Whether it’s liberating anthems such as “Every Way Mi Go” and “Party Til December” or her no-holds-barred 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.”

She 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.” And the album features “Me Hold Yuh,” the remix to Gyptian’s Billboard banger “Hold You,” which is now permeating the airwaves.

With Triple Platinum status and a Grammy under her frock for her collaboration with No Doubt on “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 artists like Beenie Man, Sizzla, Bounty Killer, Vegas, Vybz Kartel, Capelton 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.
