Vanessa Bling dropped the video for her single, “10 Bags,” off her new EP, “Still Standing.”
This track is the follow up to her first single “Freedom,” where she relieved the most difficult time in her own life.

The Dancehall artist, who premiered her EP at Tracks & Records in St Andrew, is hoping to conquer charts with the release of the project.
“Listen, I put it out and send it out in Jesus name. I am looking for it to go number one on the Billboard and worldwide,” she told media reporters.
“It’s the best project I’ve ever done and I’m excited,” she added.
“Still Standing,” which is produced by New Yorker Madison , features six tracks, including “10 Bags.”
The EP’s title bears weight for the singer long hiatus from music and endured years of legal woes.

“I’ve been to court, I’ve been through a lot so I think it’s (the name) perfect for me. I just decided to put it all in the music so you can hear. It’s really for everybody; the tracks on it is not what you would typically expect from Vanessa,” she added.
