Dancehall Queen, Lady Saw (Marion Hall), has announced the release of her first album since 2007, My Way, which is expected to be released within the next month September 7, 2010 through a new partnership with Toasting Music, alongside her label Diva Records, distributed by Fontana/Universal. The lead single, Party Till December, is available digitally as of next Tuesday August 10.

With the release of My Way, Saw brings back her famous Dancehall beats and gritty lyrics that first gained her acclaim and widespread popularity at Dancehall shows. The album features fourteen tracks including lead single, Party Till December, which will also feature a music video due out in late August. Other tracks include He Is At My House (featuring Eve), Every Way Mi Go, and I Can't Wait (featuring Ding Dong).

"Lady Saw exudes a strength and determination in her music both lyrically and melodically that resonates with her fans. My Way continues that sound, and will likely permeate through not just the dancehall and reggae communities, but to Hip Hop and Dance fans as well. That makes her a perfect fit for Toasting Music," says Steven Weber, President of Toasting Music.

Lady Saw will be playing a number of shows throughout the late summer and early fall, including appearances at Montreal Reggae Festival August 8, Hot 97's On the Reggae Tip in New York on September 3, and at Miami Carnival on October 9.

Lady Saw was the first female DJ to win a Grammy Award, and the first female to be certified triple platinum as a result of her work on No Doubt's Underneath It All in 2003 after reaching #3 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Saw also received gold certification for her work Smile with Vitamin C. Previous releases Give Me A Reason, and Passion, paved the way for her best-selling album, Raw, the Best of Lady Saw in 1998.
