Voluptuous Jamaican singer Barbee dropped a new single titled “Whoa.”
Barbee keeps her island roots intact on the Rock City-produced track, which samples Dancehall DJ Sister Nancy’s 1982 hit “Bam Bam.”
Listen to “Whoa” by Barbee.
“Whoa” dropped after a successful late fall launch of Barbee Cosmetics, where Barbee brought a lively crowd to NYC’s Taj on April 21 to present her latest lipstick color, Blue Dream.
The singer who resides in the US, Barbee announced her new collection of cosmetics, The Barbee Collection at New York’s premiere women’s convention, Circle of Sisters, in October of last year.
Barbee was born Faith J. Eselebor in New York City. At age 16, Barbee was as a member of a girl group called “Best Kept Secret”. The group opened for acts such as rappers Jadakiss, Cameron and others.
However, due to circumstances, the group broke up. It was time to go solo and she did so in a spectacular way by recording her first single “Missing you” with Jamaican artist Junior Kelly.
In 2007 (the same year she released her first single) the young artist also worked with Dancehal veteran Beenie Man, being featured on the Revenge Riddim and in the video of Beenie Man’s hit single “Give It Up.”
The success of the single with Beenie Man opened the international market to Barbee, and she grabbed it with both hands. After that, she recorded “Paddy Cake” (featuring Beenie Man), “Diva in My Sneakers” and “Light Some Candles tonight,” and “Love You Anyway.”
