CANADIAN singer Belee Kaur is thrilled to be among the featured acts on the Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica: The Asia Editon slated for release in September.

"Reggae has always been one of my favourite genre of music. Every time I listened to some of my favourite reggae songs I felt that I need more of it. You can never have enough of this genre," she told the Jamaica Observer.

Her track on the project is titled Fire Starter.

The album is being headed by legendary West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle and also features multiple international acts like Lauryn Hill, Morgan Heritage, Jah Cure, Capleton, Kali Ranks, Jason Derulo, King Tiger, and Malaysian reggae artiste Sasi the Don.

The 10-track album will be on the Contractor Music Group.

Having visited Jamaica for the first time recently, Kaur is confident that her collaboration on the album will boost her career.

"It is always exciting to be a part of a new genre and Jamaica has always been a land of so many gifted and talented artistes. Being a part this great nation will always be exciting for any artist around the globe," she said.

Kaur said she is a fan of Bob Marley and Spice. She is positive that Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica: The Asia Editon will do well on the international charts.

"I am very excited to be a part of the project and [am] certain that like before this album will hit number one on the Billboard," the singer said.

Hailing from Ontario, Canada, she had aspirations of playing tennis on the international scene. However, her musical calling was greater.

She has collaborated with American rappers Soulja Boy and Future. She quickly got the attention of a major crowd with her debut single I Believe.
