@SpiceOfficial: The Dancehall Queen Of The Stage!


We salute the “Stage Show Boss” in this post. As the saying goes, “Give people Flowers while they can still smell them”. Big up Spice!

The Throne for the Dancehall Queen is currently vacant, and there could only be one who ascends to claim her rightful place at the top of Dancehall. The genre is now in the Era of “The Spicy 1“, and though her given name is Grace Latoya Hamilton, we know her as Spice! Never been far from the spotlight, Spice proved time and time again that she’s in a lane of her own with no contenders. From acting, to singing, deejaying, to dancing, she’s multifaceted and continues to have an edge among her peers.

Words by King David x SwadeDaVillain

Since her debut, Spice has always been one to push boundaries in Dancehall as a Female Artist. She will always be known for being different whether it be for the colour of her hair, her unique outfits, or her many stand out singles. Among her Dancehall peers, she has never been afraid to outperform them, whether male or female. Her various Clash appearances, “War” records and counteractions are proof of this. Bounty Killer, one of her earliest mentors, hailed her as one of the “Baddest” acts before she even scored her first hit.

NEW VIDEO: @MissMya x @SpiceOfficial – Take Him Out


Hey blogworld, got a new video for you guys. Now I was unaware that Mya had a song out with deejay Spice, now there’s a video. Titled “Take Him Out” and directed by the legendary Rass Kassa, Mya and Spice sing about their frustrations with the men in their lives. Typical unappreciated lover anthem, and the scenes were pretty decent. Seeing Mya pinning clothes to a line was a bit funny but dancing while being surrounded by filled garbage bags and a garbage truck? Weird. Anyway by the looks of it this was shot in Jamaica and that’s a good thing. Click on the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
