Her singles are a combination of Reggae, Dance, Pop and R&B. These singles have been creating waves on the Finland Music Market and have received over 500,000 hits combined. “Understand,” was produced by T.J Records and “Invincible” was written and co-produced by Night.
As it relates to Invincible, Night states that: “I initially wrote this song for Erica Mena from the popular VH1 Reality Series, Love and Hip Hop but decided to record it myself because the lyrics are a true embodiment of the emotional difficulties I was experiencing at that time. Night is also currently recording with Truck Back Records, Andrews “Drew” Correa, DJ Zion and Star Johnson who is synonymous with Sugartime Sports Management.
Night was featured on 3 of Dancehall Artiste Baby Chams’ songs, one of which being “That’s How I Ride” and also “Right There” with Dancehall Star Spice. The move fromTOI to “Tracey Night” was simply because too many “TOI’S existed in the Music Industry and it made sense for her to create her own identity. The “Night” is a representation of a dark, mysterious and sexy female with high energy and intellect.
She has worked on various modelling campaigns such as: Sean John, and Nestle‘ to name a few and has been featured in videos such as: “Paid not Played” and “What I’m Gonna Do” by Award Winning Jamaican Reggae Artiste Buju Banton.
