Popular host and media personality turned artiste, Yanique ‘Curvy Diva’ Barrett, is adding another hot track to her growing catalog of recording material, this time she has teamed up with known international reggae recording artiste Ky-mani Marley.
T he new single ‘Turn Your Lights Down Low’ is a slow seductive neo reggae track coined after Bob Marley’s single of the same name. Kimani himself decided to use his father’s song as inspiration and also showed interest in working with The Curvy Diva on the single after listening to the riddim from TJ Records.
“Ky-mani and I have done work before including a collaboration with Vybz kartel called ‘Cool and Deadly’, we also have a few more soon to be released singles. When he heard this particular riddim though, he wrote and titled the single and also requested Yanique as the female on the track, so I reached out to her to make it happen,” Linton ‘TJ’ White of TJ Records explained
The Curvy Diva was also extremely excited to have garnered a Grammy nominated international voice as her very first collaboration as a recording artiste.
“Working with Ky-mani was awesome, I’m glad I was given the opportunity to do a collaboration with the son of a legend to really deliver such a hot song. I’m happy about it,” Curvy Diva noted
The Curvy Diva transitioned from Host and TV Personality earlier this year when she recorded ‘Lifestyle’ for popular label ‘Good Good Production’ on the Money Mix riddim, since then she has had increased interest from artistes and producers to do additional projects.
“I’m interested in doing music from the heart so my team and I are very strategic in the choices we make for follow up singles. Good quality music is what is important to me and working with Ky- mani Marley and TJ Records with ‘Turn Your Lights Down Low’ was a good production and I know this good music will get where it needs to go,” The Curvy Diva added
The single ‘Turn Your Lights Down Low’ premiered earlier this week and will be followed up with a music video during the summer. The track will be available for purchase on digital platforms later this month and is distributed by Zojak Worldwide.
The Curvy Diva, who recently returned from an appearance in St Kitts, is currently working closely with Good Good Production to complete visuals for her first single ‘Lifestyle’ this month, She is also putting final touches on her Caribbean Club tour which kick starts in Grand Cayman in August and should see her visiting additional islands like Dominican Republic, Suriname, Trinidad, St Martin and Nevis for the 4 week stint.
