The talented artist, who is always seeking ways to diversify her product offerings, recently collaborated with Rory of Stone Love on a remix of her culturally defining single, Down In Jamaica. The dancehall remix was produced by Belize’s own Certified! The single will bereleased on digital retail as of June 24th.

Accolades have already been heaped on the music video, which shows off the immense beauty of Jamaica and the sincerity of Shalli’s mission. On her visit to Jamaica in March, Shalli went into the studio with Rory and the result was a remix that is totally captivating.

“It was really a pleasure working with Rory, as he is someone who I have admired for a long time. He is a top-class Dj, so it is easy to understand that, with his knowledge of the music, he is also a great producer and has that ear for hit songs. And we all know just how important that is,” Shalli said.

Armed with a mission to give fans uplifting music, Shalli has also done a collaboration with Trinidad’s own Orlando Octave entitled Fire, on the ‘Happy Feet’ rhythm.

Wasting no time, the video for this was shot and both artists and their management are happy with the outcome. A very uptempo offering, this could have been specifically made to celebrate carnival in Trinidad, and with the natural chemistry between the artistes, the song and video jelled perfectly.

“The rhythm is called ‘Happy Feet’ because it is just that, happy. The single is already getting a lot of love, especially in the Caribbean. We are working on a dance remix now to support the video launch in the fall.” Shalli explained.
