The St James-born artiste joined the Penthouse camp shortly after winning the Digicel Rising Stars competition in 2009.
Penthouse is a major force in contemporary dancehall. The label is responsible for the mainstream success of artistes such as Wayne Wonder and Buju Banton.
Shuga released her new song, Caribbean People, last week. It is produced by Warieka Productions.
