LADY SAW DROPS FIRST SINGLE FROM NEW ALBUM
Great party vibes, walk-out and never get tired, girls’ anthem and independent woman are all saucily packaged in Party Til December, the frolicking. lead-off single from Lady Saw’s soon-to-be-released album, My Way, on her new label, Divas Records/Toasting Music/Universal.
Armed with a rollicking, uptempo riddim, Lady Saw, steps to it as only she can and with one press of a button fires off lyrics which are sure to have all the single ladies – and some of those ‘in a relationship’ – making that quantum leap from the boredom of a bedroom to the dazzle of a dance floor. And, as infectious as the riddim is, Party Til December is one of those songs that make the listener also want to hear the lyrics.
Perhaps it’s Lady’s Saw’s delivery which oozes with confidence, coupled with her ability to ride a riddim and her experience as a smooth toaster that give this single its appeal.
According to Saw, who wears her producer hat on this track from the album, due in stores September 7, Party Till December was one of the first songs she did for the album and while working on the project it was her favourite, until it was replaced by others.
“I thought the record company would have chosen one of the combination singles, perhaps the one with Eve or Ding Dong, because those are really nice tracks. So I was surprised when they selected Party Till December as the lead-off single,” she explained, adding that she was pleased nonetheless.
Saw surmised that the single’s crossover potential could have played a role in the decision-making process. Party Till December is quite a club banger and is also a true girls’ anthem, the type which has been gaining popularity with fans internationally.
On the track, she dishes out with loads of attitude, this body’s too hot to be at home just kicking back, after which she informs that, she’s got her own money, her own ride and her bills are paid. So what does an independent single girl with a man who wants her back supposed to do? Well Saw gives an option -- with a new attitude and a killa hairstyle, let’s party till December
The album, My Way, also has productions from Tony 'CD' Kelly, Lloyd 'John John' James, Danny Browne and Stephen McGregor. Among the other tracks are Every Way Mi Go, Your Chick, He Is At My House (Feat. Eve), My Way, Me Hold Yuh, Muscle Control (Feat. Camar) and I Can’t Wait (Feat. Ding Dong).
