Spice recently released song titled “Sheet” has been a huge hit in dancehall not just locally but on the international scene and especially in Europe where the artist is currently on tour.Back in 2010, now incarcerated deejay Vybz Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer released a single titled ‘Clarks’ ft. Popcaan & Vannessa Bling. The song was major hit and stores across Jamaica reported selling out of the very thing Vybz Kartel was hymning. The big surprise though was the subject of the song a pair of shoes made by a then 185-year-old family-owned company based in the town of Street in Somerset, England. The single covered carried pictures of Kartel’s favourite Clarks shoes – the Wallabees, Desert Boots and Desert Trek shoes of the Original “heritage” range – of which he claims to have more than 50 pairs.
Spice currently has the biggest trend in dancehall “Sheet” even when compared to her male counterparts. Since its release ‘Sheet,’ has been one of the major highlights at the biggest street dances. The trend for people to take sheets to parties is also a hit accross the Caribben as well as in Europe.
The song tells the story of what goes on between the sheets in a fun way that ladies can dance and have fun. Spice said.
We have yet to hear the reports of stores having a spike in sheet sales, however, it is undoubtedly the biggest trend in dancehall right now.
It was in February that international superstar Nicki Minaj ‘shoot out’ Spice for the “indicator” soca remix she did with Trini soca star Bunjigarlin.
Soca Rmx – My new obsession. Yikes. Haven’t felt like this about a woman in dancehall since Lady Saw. @spiceofficial (sound like a female vybz Kartel) idk how I didn’t know about u b4 but S/O to my trini brotha @bunjigarlin for doing this soca remix cuz now I’m in love. Y’all both MURDERED this. Beat crazyyyyyy. Island gyal ting. It sell off!!!! Everybody else: fix up yaself. Haha!!!! she said her ass gon convert Donald Trump . Nicki wrote on Instagram
Spice recently won female artist of the year for the third straight year at this year’s 10th anniversary of the Youth Views Awards.
Last year she did what no other dancehall or reggae female star has done in over 8 years by being the first female to be nominated for a MOBO award since songbird Etana was nominated back in 2008.
Spice may not get all the credit she deserves in this male dominated industry but there is an argument that the “So Mi Like It” artist might be on her way to becoming one of the most influential deejay after Vybz Kartel in this modern era.
