Jamaican Grammy-winning reggae, hip-hop, and dancehall singer Lady Saw is set to release her new album My Way on September 7, 2010. The record, her first with Toasting Music/Diva Records, follows the 2007 release Walk Out, her final album on the reggae label VP Records. On a tour that started this month, she performed today (September 4) at Dancehall Stylee in Vineland, New Jersey. She will participate on September 6 in the Labor Day Parade/West Indian Carnival in Brooklyn, New York, and on October 9, she will perform at the Miami Carnival in Miami, Florida.
A Dancehall.mobi review describes, “Born Marion Hall, Lady Saw remains true to her sexually empowering, cheeky lyricism on My Way, but with an eye on reaching a wider audience. Whether it’s liberating anthems like ‘Every Way Mi Go’ and ´Party ‘til December´ or her uncut delivery on ´Muscle Control’ and ‘5 Minutes,’ this 16-track collection is jam-packed with radio ready tunes and the hardcore style that put Saw on the map with her massive 1994 debut release Lover Girl.”
Lady Saw explains, “I have grown over the years. People ask me, ‘are you toning down’? I say, the nasty stuff is still there, just not as over the top. They still gonna really get the raw Lady Saw, especially when I perform. But, I wanted to make a record for everyone.”
