Shenseea See Herself As A “Dancehall Pop” Or “Reggae Pop” Artist

Shenseea : L'étoile montante du reggae et du dancehallJamaican singer Shenseea believes her unique style might deserve a label like “Dancehall pop” or “Reggae pop” artist.

During an interview with Spotify for its “Making It With Spotify” feature, the Blessed singer noted the challenges that artists face in maintaining their signature style. “Artists these days you do one style they’re like ‘okay we know you for this style,’” she explains, “but you have that style for too long they’re like ‘okay now we’re bored.’”

To reflect this artistic blend, Shenseea suggested a new classification for her sound: “Maybe I should classify myself as like a dancehall pop or reggae pop artist,” she pondered. “You know? To make it still be like an infusion and still feels authentic in a way because that’s what my music is.”


Beyond genre labels, Shenseea also told Spotify that she has her sights set on achieving global superstardom.

“I would say I’m successful when I have a diamond record, a Grammy. To fill out a stadium, that’s one of my ultimate dreams. Everything that I’ve just listed that’s what inspires me to keep on creating. Until I get those I will never stop creating,” she said.

“I want to be a Global Superstar that’s how I see myself I want to make music that appeals to everybody I want to make the world happy and Heal the World with my music,” she added.
