Recording Artist Koffee has a lot to be thankful for. With 2018 seeing her being the talk of the town with her smash hit “Toast” (racking up 16 million views on Youtube currently), signing to Columbia Records, touring the world and touching many with her music, her star has yet to shine its brightest. 2019 so far has seen Koffee making more moves, and this next move that we’ll share might see her standing out even more.
Moviegoers worldwide are anticipating the theatrical release of the Horror flick, “Us“. Directed by Comedian/Director Jordan Peele and starring Trinbagonian-American Actor Winston Duke and Kenyan-Mexican Actress Lupita Nyong’o, it has been the talk of Social Media as Peele’s previous film, “Get Out” was a huge success. Yesterday (March 11) at US based Conference and Festival South By Southwest (SXSW), moviegoers were treated to an early screening of the film, and fans of Reggae music were delighted to hear Koffee’s hit single as it has been included in a scene of the film. Produced by Izy Beats and Walshy Fire, the song finds Koffee giving thanks for her many blessings, and encouraging listeners to show gratitude. We featured it as one of our 2018 favourites, and we’ve seen it cross many seas and nations since its release, even scoring a “Song Of The Year” award at the recently held Jamaica Reggae Industry Awards (JaRIA). Koffee is currently gearing up to release her debut EP, “Rapture” on March 14 which also features “Raggamuffin” and “Throne“.
“Us” hits Theatres on March 22, but you can view the trailer below. Check out our post on Koffee’s “Toast” here, and share. Be sure to show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
