Jamaican deejay Shenseea’s fast-rising career just got another boost with the entertainer signing a historic deal with American music powerhouse Interscope Records.
Interscope is partnering with Jamaican producer Rvssian’s own Rich Immigrants imprint in the deal which has already spawned the single ‘Blessed’ featuring rapper Tyga, and accompanying video which was released earlier this week.
“Interscope always strives to work with artistes that can move culture on a global scale. Shenseea is already doing that,” Interscope’s EVP Joie Manda reportedly said, adding “She represents Jamaica in a loud and truly authentic voice. We couldn’t be any more pleased to partner with her and Rvssian. Many artistes go to Jamaica to learn culture, Shenseea teaches it.”
The self-proclaimed ‘princess of dancehall’ shot onto the music scene in 2017 with the hit single ‘Loodie’ featuring Vybz Kartel, and has emerged as one of the genre’s most marketable artistes.
She has also demonstrated her crossover appeal with collaborations with pop star Christina Aguilera and soca standout Nailah Blackman.
Shenseea is reportedly the first Jamaican dancehall act to ever sign with Interscope, which is home to a number of global superstars including Lady Gaga, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Dr Dre, Selena Gomez and Maroon 5.
