Cry Not For Me Sings Raine Seville As She Sets Free On Her Musical Journey
(Kingston, Jamaica) - Months ago a sultry single released creating waves of social media buzz and speculations. Not only did this single spawn overnight success it manifested a various range of feedback. At the helm of this sexually confident hype was singer Raine Seville.
Although negative energy tried to raise up through gossip and scrutinizing, Raine Seville undauntedly kept her focus, and centered on her music. Following the controversial single "Sekkle Dung" with Konshens, Raine has done nothing but record, network, and record some more. Grasping on the newfound musical attention, Beenie Man grabbed Raine for two singles (one "You Choose" will appear on his upcoming album and "Khaki" ), along with producers ZJ Ice, JJ Wizzle, Locke City and Truckback Records.
"Since the project with Konshens, it has opened up a lot of doors for me. Controversy aside, "Sekkle Dung" allowed people to see a new side of me."
One new side is showcased on the Locke City/Truckback Records single "Willow Tree". A revisioning of the classic 1967 Alton Ellis single "Willow Tree", Raine Seville melts soulful vocals alongside a hint of singjay styling.
"When I went to record this song, Truckback and I decided to be diplomatic instead of feeding into the negativity at the time. I'm fine, all the negativity energy won't work, I'm fine and happy with MYSELF. So hence the reason I added my own verse to the song while still paying tribute to Alton Ellis and his original vocals. This single also introduces me to older lovers of Reggae, showing I can appeal to them while managing to have my younger fans know classic music like this. "
While "Willow Tree" is currently gaining grounds locally and internationally, Raine Seville is fervently working on new material as she continues to set free her musical diversity. This summer will see the release of two more singles with Truckback Records, a few video releases and the debuts for her collaborations with Beenie Man.
As Raine croons "cry not for me" through the controversy, she remains exceptionally level headed and targeted on sharing her musical range with Jamaica and beyond.
