US-based fusion artist/producer Neka Leslie recently teamed up with international Dancehall star Busy Signal to record her soon-to-be-released single titled African Girl.
The song, which is a blend of Reggae and Afro Beat was produced by the talented artiste for her Neka Leslie Music Group imprint and J August Reid of J. August Music.
“This song is for all the beautiful black women across the world. It’s a celebration of our beauty, our African heritage, and our unique qualities. We are black and beautiful and powerful, so let’s celebrate it,” said the artist.
African Girl is scheduled to be released along with a supporting music video on the 28 of January.
“I am anticipating a good response from music lovers all over the world when my single is released. It’s my first major project and I am very excited about it. I am also very grateful to Busy Signal for being a part of this project. I learned a lot from him while working on this single,” said Neka Leslie.
The Westmoreland-born singer who resides in Atlanta, Georgia has several other projects in the pipeline including a single titled Real Life which is slated to be released in March.
She is also working on an EP that she plans to drop later this year.
Neka Leslie (given name Shaneka Leslie) was born and raised in Westmoreland, Jamaica. She launched her career at the age of 18. Since then, she has shared the stage with several established artistes including Jah Cure, Jagged, Edge, Christopher Martin, Konshens, Mavado and Octane.
