19-year-old Jamaican artist Koffee is making waves with her unrelenting and non-conforming reggae spin on rap. The charismatic singer is riding high with the success of her hit single, “Toast” which has charted at the top of the Billboard charts. The song is a funky dancehall, reggae and hip hop infusion that has everyone moving and grooving.
Born Mikayla Simpson, Koffee’s mission is to preserve Jamaica’s roots and culture in music and to empower the youth of her generation through her musical journey across the world. Originally inspired into making music by listening to reggae and dancehall artists like Proteje and Super Cat, everything came full circle earlier this year when the former reached out to request she perform with him. It’s all been a bit of a whirlwind since.
“Toast”, taken from her recently released EP “Rapture”, blesses the listener with energy and youthful pride, and the accompanying music video is as celebratory as the name suggests, taking viewers on a tour through the site of the Paint Jamaica Project in Downtown Kingston, Jamaica, while lyrics lay down an ode to Koffee’s achievements so far.
Produced by Walshy Fire & Izy Beats, “Toast” brings a signature blend of sunshine and fun times that’ll leave you buzzing.
