Dancehall diva Tifa has been hard at work, putting the final touches on projects with several of Jamaica’s top producers includingDon Corleon, Ward 21, Equinoxx and even New York’s Good Time Click. On the heels of her successful hit Spell It Out released in mid March, Tifa, has managed to find the stuff that hit songs are made of, once again. With as many as four tracks currently blazing the local and North American airwaves, the fiery dancehall enigma has spread her wings far and is returning to her singing roots.
Tifa, whose real name is Latifa Brown, exhibits her writing and vocal versatility on the Don Corleon produced track Why, recorded on the Feminine rhythm. She shares with fans her talent of singing, something they might not be too familiar with.
“Before I got my big break I used to sing quite a bit, so when Don came up with this rhythm I immediately had the idea of putting a song I wrote two years ago on the rhythm,” explained the artiste.
Don Corleon’s masterful up-tempo rhythm Pulse, which is expected to be dominant in the Christmas season, also features Tifa’s controversial Who Go Luu. The track, released recently, is becoming the latest lingua to hit the streets, as the female deejay lashes out on people she dubs “never si com si” , and “licky licky”. The Pulserhythm also features some of dancehall’s other hitmakers, including Vybz Kartel, Capleton, Timberlee, Munga and Wayne Marshall.
Tifa’s project Holding Power, produced by Good Time Click out of New York on the Weapon rhythm, is receiving heavy rotation in North America. That project also features artistes such as Beenie Man, Vibes Kartel, R&B crooner Jimmy Cozier and Black Butterfly.
In expressing her joy, the sassy siren says, “I feel good to know that my songs are being played all over the world and that my fans take to my material. Is just crazy vibes happening right now.” A music video for Holding Power is in the pipelines, and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
Her newest single, Sick, on the Yellow Monkey rhythm is produced by Equinox and is set to “hurt up people head” and never one to stray too far from home, Tifa once again teamed with Ward 21 to produce So Good To Me.
She wraps up her slew of productions with the 90’s flavoured, Ballaz Production produced Boasy Wid It.
The hard working DJ vows to take it to the masses for the holiday season with a number of performances and promotions as well as music video production for at least two of her recent tracks.
