After a six-year hiatus, Queen Ifrica makes her return to the music scene.
The 17-track set, which brings powerful messages about peace, equality and love, has debuted at number one, making Ifrica the only solo female artiste on the chart and the only Jamaican performer in the top five.
“Climb” features fan favorite “Trueversation, (feature Damian Marley)” which has been grabbing the ears and eyes of listeners. Queen Ifrica has been a strong advocate for women’s issues playing an important role in recognizing International Woman’s Day in Jamaica.
Her track “Black Woman” focuses on her commitment to raise consciousness and esteem among women in Jamaica and the diaspora.
Other tracks include Love is Not Blind, Medical Marijuana, and Rebellion.
Known for her strong and compelling social commentary messages, “Climb” has been getting rave reviews from fans and music critics alike, for its timely messages and inspirational lyrics.
“I Just want to thank everyone that supported me from day one, you are always in my heart, please continue to support good music, you are my inspiration. Blessings,” says Queen Ifrica.
This is Ifrica’s second album to chart on Billboard, following 2009’s Montego Bay which peaked at number nine. The last woman to top the Billboard reggae table was Etana in 2014 with I Rise.
