Lady Lava’s raunchy, hyper-sexualized lyrics do not define who she is. She wants you to understand that. In fact, much like Jamaican dancehall artiste, Spice always says, her stage persona and the hat she wears when she’s with her children, are two opposite sides of the coin.
Blessed with a son now, Lady Lava says it’s important that parents speak openly with their children about what entertainment is. Now, a major music collaboration unleashed, alongside Jamaican dancehall superstar, Charly Black, Lady Lava is moving full steam ahead in the music industry. In 2023, she wrote several songs for artistes like Trinidad Killa, Yung Bredda, Nessa Preppy and Tempa. She also released two soca tracks of her own. Already, the mill she mans has been churning out new soca singles, but she warns, these tracks will offer a taste of the Zess flavour that’s become widely popular even outside of T&T.
Chatting with Ebuzztt.com, Lady Lava explained that her relationship with Charly Black goes back many years, their individual teams having been connected and forging family-like ties over the years. “Whenever he visits Trinidad, we always link up,” she said, recalling that she performed at his 2017 birthday bash held at Next Nightclub in Trinidad. “We had always talked about collaborating and when he came to Trinidad as a part of his ‘No Excuses’ tour a couple months ago, we started the process.”
Lava and Charly linked up after his performance at Woodford Cafe back in May and the groundwork for the brand new collaboration began. Recording of the track by the very busy Jamaican entertainer would come later when the artiste made a quick stopover in Trinidad, en route to Guyana. “When he stopped over, he recorded his vocals for the track with producer, First Klase,” said Lava. “Everyone who hears this song, likes it. The beat’s a mix of dancehall, Afrobeat and Alternative. I think the time is right for this one,” she said.
