Tash’s management team hailed the news as further evidence of her development as a bonafide recording artiste.
“Baby Tash is developing well. She did a number overseas radio interviews on stations in New Jersey, New York, England and Jamaica over the last few weeks; disc jockeys are interested in her sound. She has been doing a lot of radio drops for various radio stations in the US, Canada, England and the Caribbean. She been getting a lot request for radio drops and dubs,” manager Ray Alexander said.
A wonderfully talented stage performer, Baby Tash is also considered an exciting prospect for local stage shows.
“The phone nuh stop ring off the hook for stage shows. This girl is going to be a sensation,” Mr. Alexander, who books for artistes such as Mr. Vegas and Cecile, said.
In the meantime, Baby Tash has been working hard on new singles such as ‘Talk the Ting Straight’ on the Excited riddim for producer College Boyz. But is another single, Haffi Come Back on the Shud out Riddim , which appears to be generating a lot of early buzz. The single which was conceptualized and mixed by famed producer Richard ‘Shams’ Browne has become a favourite of mix tape deejays who often mix the song with Vybz Kartel’s ultra-popular Love Dem. which is generating a lot of early buzz. The single produced by ZJ Sparks.
“These two songs should be hitting the airwaves by next month,” Mr. Alexander said.
In the meantime, dancehall insiders say that Baby Tash’s Facebook has emerged as one of the few end-to-end satisfying songs in 2009, a juicy song with a bouncy hook and PG 13 sexual innuendo that continues to dominate local FM radio.
There are plans to shoot a video for Tash's breakout single with its infectious sing-along hook. The single has been blowing up all over FM radio. A veteran performer who has made a lasting impact on every
major competition held in the performing arts — from Festival to Tastee Talent Contest to Digicel Rising Stars — and also Dancing Dynamites, BT has solidified a decent little underground following
with this breakout hit.
