“The song was somewhat inspired by the beat. It was heavily influenced by Reggae-ton and Baile Funk, and so the lyrics themselves played into this naturally,” she said in an interview with this column.

Vai was previewed at a listening session this week at Big Yard Studio in Kingston and is scheduled for digital release on May 10.

Keida said working with Summerz “was a really refreshing experience. His ability to see and bring out some different sides of me was something I have been trying to find for a while. I am excited and looking forward to sharing the rest of our project with everyone. This is me on another level.”

It has been almost 10 years since Keida (given name Makeida Beckford) got into music. She shared her evolution over that period.

However, the feeling I get from these experiences is far more rewarding in my opinion,” she said. “I’ve been able to touch on various markets and gain new fan bases just by taking my on a natural musical journey. This has opened me up to new opportunities, such as international collaborations with artistes like Christina Aguilera.”

Last year, Keida collaborated with Aguilera and Shenseea on the song Right Moves, from Aguilera’s album Liberation.

Originally from Bull Bay, St Andrew, Keida attended St Andrew High School for Girls and Edna Manley College for the Visual and Performing Arts.
