Talented reggae artist “Yeza” Is Rapidly Gaining Popularity With Her Fantastic Music

Known as Yeza, Monique Chambers is a reggae/dancehall artist from St Andrew, Jamaica. Having developed her sound through working with numerous artists/producers, Yeza started showcasing who she was as an artist, landing herself some major gigs.

Talented and hardworking artist, Yeza overcame this by honing her craft and working at constant improvement. Her creativity and ability to send thoughtful messages through musical lyrics have also built a solid foundation for the artist she is today. I had a quick interview with Yeza and you would be amazed by what her ambition and goals are. Check out the interview below.

Let’s start off by introducing yourself, you know the basics like name, age, where you’re from. As much or little as you’re comfortable sharing.

Monique Chambers artiste name Yeza. Age 31, from St Andrew Jamaica. I am an authentically cultured, bold unapologetic feminine force with a touch of grit and street; this translates to the sound of “rude girl roots” in my music which is culture meets street, always seeking to uplift the people through the message. 

Talk me through your creative process. 

Starts with inspiration which can come from anywhere, I then play with Melodies and may come up with words before I write. I then write to an instrumental to create the perfect synergy. 

How do you solve productivity/scheduling problems and reduce overwhelming situations? 

Communication, meetings and also taking time out to recharge and then come back strong.

 

What’s the best advice you ever received concerning music? 

Nothing solid comes to mind. I would say it’s been more of affirmations and stuff that I’ve discovered on my own, such as; learning to understand yourself and what you want to contribute to the art is a great foundation or starting point to becoming great at what you do. 

What is still your biggest challenge? 

Balancing all the parts happening all at once. Music is a whole world by itself; the music industry has so many arms and legs that you need to tend to equally. Even with the help of my team: which I am grateful for, the attention to all the areas can become challenging at times. I’m not the biggest lover of social media, and I am not very extroverted so this can becoming challenging especially in this field. 

What would you have done differently if you knew then what you know now? 

I would have just saved a lot of money for investments, it takes a lot of resources to push forward and maintain a certain level of quality. 

If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be? 

Considering my genre and style: reggae/dancehall, I would open for Damien Marley or Hempress Sativa, Sizzla Chronixx or Protoje to name a few. 

What are you focusing your time on now? 

Creating new music and executing new and improved business plans. 

How do you currently feel about the state of “Your genre” in general? 

It’s doing what it does, it’s revolving, our music is always evolving. Mento, ska, rocksteady then reggae followed by dancehall, as it was in the beginning, so it is at present. 

What keeps you going when things get tough in the music industry? 

Just my understanding that this is my life’s mission. I see no other way out other than through.

Ki Storii shines on new single, “Shawty Lo” (ft. Cheek the Profit)

Bronx artist Ki Storii came onto our radar for her recent single, “Shawty Lo”, which features fellow Renaissance Music member Cheek the Profit of New Jersey. An electrifying, catchy single that could rattle any track or provide an apt soundtrack to any night of clubbing and partying, “Shawty Lo”‘s infectious bounce and sharply-crafted vocals demand the listener’s attention immediately. Containing raw, hard-hitting percussion, catchy key riffs, and heavy 808s, “Shawty Lo” is a powerful, and simultaneously sensual, song that provides truly engaging energy.

Talking about “Shawty Lo”, Ki Storii says, “Shawty Lo is about being the life of the party and how the guys love being around her.” This quote rings true from the opening remarks where she states “m*f*ckers out here asking for an only fans page… HA”.

Listen to “Shawty Lo” here and familiarize yourself with the rising Bronx artist:
