Sajay is racking up the promotion behind her latest single No Use, released on the Yellow Moon Records label in May.

“It is really about a woman claiming her independence up inna the show,” said the artiste, whose real name is Samantha Johnson.

“People love it. I bring an edge, and a humour to the world of dancehall. It's all in good fun, even the men join in with the good fun, and the selectors at the weekly events have been giving me a big strength.”

Sajay grew up in St Elizabeth where she attended Nazareth All-Age School and May Day High School. She relocated to Maxfield Avenue in Kingston at 16 and recorded her first song Crime Rate.

She partnered with deejay Unicorn and started a label, Hands and Heart, in the year 2000 and released the Sledge Rhythm. Spragga Benz recorded Rasta Run The World on the rhythm. Other hit productions such as Beenie Man's Swing It Weh followed. She continued to hone her craft, before taking a break in 2006 to pursue other economic pursuits.

Unicorn was shot and killed in 2017.

In November 2010, Sajay returned to the music industry with Wi Nuh Newcomer, the first single on her new indie label, Crabb Up production.

The following year, she teamed up with Push a Yute Records to do Mi Look Good.

She is banking on the success of No Use to push her career to new heights.
