Could this 18-year old Jamaican be the future of dancehall?
For me, 18-year old Koffee is the next big export to come out of Jamaica. Running off the steam of a relatively short catalog, the Chronixx protégé most recently debuted with her first single, “Toast,” a feel good homage to the real culture of Jamaica, far away from the sandy beaches and resorts and into the snarl of Kingston and Spanish Town.
For Koffee, “Toast is one of the more sentimental tracks taken from my upcoming EP, Rapture,” “It’s about my musical journey; from being in high school and writing lyrics to entering the music industry and being able to accomplish great things upon my entrance. It’s about the gratitude I feel for all these things.”
Fitting the mood of gratitude the video features appearances from Chronixx and Protoje, almost to assure you that you're listening to the real deal. Produced by Walshy Fire of Major Lazer, the track arrives with a visual that takes us through Koffee’s hometown of Spanish Town, Jamaica. Check it on Sound Travels and keep your fingers crossed that we give this young star the royal treatment on the radio...
