Hardcore Dancehall fans have a new Diva on the Caribbean landscape – Tracey Night!
Recently released, the single “Talk The Tings Dem” builds on the popular phrase ‘Tun Up’ made popular by Cham and his Wife O, however takes aim at ladies who claim to be in that elite category and are not. The song was produced by Vexxx Records, and co-produced by Night.
About the rawness of this song Tracey says “Dancehall is a part of our culture. It’s raw, it’s gritty and it’s also honest! My music stays within the foundation set by the incredible dancehall divas before me, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a softer side … I do!”
Catching the attention of the esteemed Alex Cohen who is an award winning movie director, producer, worldwide distributor and writer, Tracey has been added her to season 5 of Les Anges de la Téléréalité as a vocal coach.
Les Anges de la Téléréalité is a France-based reality TV show broadcast on NRJ12, hosted by Fabrice Sopoglian and moderated by Matthieu Delormeau and Jeny Priez (from Miami season).

Based in Miami, Florida, Tracey, who also performed under the name TOI, has made an international impression with Radio Jocks for her ‘tell it like it is’ lyrical delivery, as well as her bold approach to co-producing tracks that represent pieces of her personality.
Radio host and personality Frazah Clection of Madd Squad Sound says “Tracey brings the raw energy that Dancehall needs right now; both on radio and in the Dancehall itself.”
