Mye Laurell makes the right move
SINGER Mye Laurell has stepped up promotion of her new songs, Move and Love Mi Man Bad, as she gives full attention to her music career.
Laurell, who is a registered nurse by profession, recently made the decision to give the health sector a break.
"I am giving music my all right now, this is the window that I have to be the best artiste that I can be and I am going to take it. I am going all in," she said.
The Kingston-born artiste recently relocated to Jamaica from New York City to get greater access to the top dancehall/reggae musicians and producers. The move has already paid dividends with Move which was released last year by Germaine 'Blaqk Sheep' Clarke.
"The beat is really infectious, and the song has been getting a buzz in overseas markets too. It was a real joy to work with Blaqk Sheep, a certified hitmaker in dancehall," a confident Laurell said.
Laurell migrated to the United States in the 1990s, after graduating from St Andrew High School. She first made the spotlight with the Wanting You remix, done with reggae/dancehall veteran Delly Ranx.
That song was produced by Anthony Malvo. It was followed by Sexy Rock, produced by Fleximus-Prime out of The Netherlands.
Another song that has done well for her is the uplifting Be Stronger.
