Since her triumphant win on season five of The Voice in 2013, Tessanne Chin has been on fire, continuing to rise above and beyond expectation.
Jamaican singer Tessanne Chin has long had an affinity for retro sounds — after all, her breakout performance on season five of The Voice (which she eventually won) was a cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”
Chin returns to the 70’s with her throwback track “Fire,” a classic-sounding R&B tune that showcases her undeniable voice.
The song has a Grammy Award-winning team behind it, having been written by Balewa Muhammad (Britney Spears, Ciara) and produced by Justice League (Mary J. Blige, Drake).
“It’s a soulful power anthem and a reminder to never sell yourself short,” Chin tells Billboard, “to keep your standards high as well as your self-worth.”
“The whole experience of creating and writing this song was just so organic and real,” Chin continues.
“It took me back to the music and an era that I absolutely love and respect.”

The Jamaica-born singer has performed for President Barack Obama (not too many artists have ever had that honor) and toured all over the world.
In 2014, the 29-year-old singer’s dreams came to fruition in the form of her major label debut album, Count on My Love, which featured the power pop ballad, “Everything Reminds Me of You.”
