Reggae Songstress Alaine to drop new album... as she balances music, acting

It came as a shock to many when they found out that she was the woman behind Samantha J's 2013 hit Tight Up Skirt, and songstress Alaine Laughton has a lot more in store for 2014.

In a recent interview with The STAR, Alaine revealed that she hopes her recent work will garner even more respect for her as a serious songwriter.

"I have so much to look forward to this year and I hope people will take me more seriously; behind the smile and the laughter is a woman that's really in love with music and wants to be seen as a serious musician."

Alaine considers herself to be multidimensional and says Jamaicans will get to see the many sides to her music in her upcoming album. "My album is coming out in June, and I'm really excited about that because persons will get to see different sides of me. There is something on it for everyone; something inspirational to keep you motivated and of course there are love songs."

Alaine's new single, So In Love, has been out since last week and has been receiving heavy rotation on local radio stations, something the singer says she is grateful for. "I've been getting calls from radio stations requesting it, people have been showing me a lot of love and I'm all about love that is all I bring" she said.

musical journey

Alaine says she looks forward to taking her fans on a musical journey with her new album and is really happy with its development.

She is also an actress who had her breakthrough with her role in Patrick Brown's Glass Slippaz last year. Alaine had a starring role as Cenderelisha and the play received three Actor Boy Awards.

The songstress told The STAR that she recently did a pilot for Jambiz International for a soap opera they will be coming out with soon, but says music is her main focus right now.

"Going on tour for acting and going on tour for music are two different experiences and I enjoyed working with Patrick Brown, Glen Campbell and the entire team, but right now I'm focused on getting this album out there. It's going to be amazing."
