Child Star @LaylaReiJA Encourages Everyone To Have “Ambition”!


Ambition yuh fi have ambition…

They usually say “a child shall lead the way“, and today young Recording Artist Layla-Rei will do just that with her new single. While she showed us that you have to aim high and put in the work on her debut single, she now encourages us to have “Ambition“! Released through her Mother Raine Seville’s Seville Records, Layla borrows the legendary Bam Bam Riddim from Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare and drops some words that we all need to hear with her proud Mama helping out throughout the song. Whether you’re 2 months or 99 years old, ambition is something that we should all have in order to achieve greatness in life. Layla-Rei gets to work in the video playing various roles, and this was made possible through the efforts of Michael McLeish, and Rockwildaz who handled directing and editing duties.
