Queen Ifrica Performs On WPIX Morning Show


Queen Ifrica recently performed on New York's WPIX morning show, as she appeared as part of The Caribbean Tourism Organizations Caribbean Week.

Ifrica, who was also celebrating the release of her debut album, 'Montego Bay' (June 16), performed Lioness On The Rise, singing: "You can call me by my name (I am ready to roll), once the rules remain the same (how the story's been told), call me any time (never cop out) a lioness is on the rise, don't you ever have doubt."

Queen Ifrica and Tony Rebel are currently in the US promoting Ifrica's new album, as the artiste has been engaged in a number of interviews on radio, television and also in the print media.


Queen Ifrica's debut album is released by VP Records and features 13 tracks, including popular singles like Daddy, Keep It To Yourself, Far Away and Lioness on the Rise, and already, the album has been creating quite a stir in the streets.

It takes an exceptionally sophisticated writer to translate topics as solemn as incest, random violence and abject poverty into hit songs; and Queen Ifrica's uncompromised opinions posit possible answers to these social disorders. Queen Ifrica achieves that rarefied balance throughout 'Montego Bay' and the strikingly complex Rastafarian female voice she brings to reggae is certain to engage the uninitiated as well as the seasoned fan.

"I want people who hear this record to understand what my aspirations are for this world," Ifrica disclosed, adding, "All that effort we put towards dispute support, we can put towards solution support."
