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.

This interview conducted in Atlanta after a Baby Cham performance is original content from the award-winning Highlanda.net. Big ups to top rated Baby Cham! Look out for the something new from Highlanda coming at you over the internet very soon.
Kahlil: Cham you just mashed up and leveled Planet Q. What do you have to say about the show?
Cham: Its like a regular night. Everyday of the week we work; Monday through Friday. We just thank the fans for coming out and showing us so much love. Each time we try to give them at least 190% worth of work, you know…?
Kahlil: When can we expect the next album?
Cham: At the end of this year or early next year. I’m in the studio right after this tour. I’ve been touring since last year October, non-stop. I’ll get a break now so I’ll be in the studio trying to get some tracks together for the next album.
Kahlil: As far as influences and motivation, what’s your driving force right now?
Cham: I feel its my mother and son–straight up. And just love for the music and trying to see the music reach places. Music, in regards to reggae music and dancehall music as a whole.
Kahlil: …And who were some of the artists you looked up to when you were coming up also?
Cham: Dave Kelly, Buju Banton, Wayne Wonder, Major Worries, Shabba Ranks, the majority of the top entertainers from Jamaica. Every single entertainer that was mashing up the dancehall scene while I was attending school, those were the artists I tried to portray–DJ their lyrics. And now I can do my own and hopefully have youth trying to portray me and DJ my styles.
Kahlil: How do you deal with the negative people and influences in the music industry?
Cham: I stick around the positive. I never go around the negative. Negative ain’t good for you at all. I stick to my family. My family is positive to me and never show me a negative side. And that’s it. …Go get the album Wowow! The Story.”
