Vanessa Bling returns from hiatus with 'Freedom'

Jamaican singer/songwriter Vanessa Bling is officially back on the scene and addressing the cause of her self-imposed hiatus head-on with the release of her new song, 'Freedom'. The horn-heavy, reggae-meets-R&B song finds the singer, formerly known as Gaza Slim, reliving the most difficult time in her own life, encouraging listeners to "fight like your life depends on it."

In 2011, Vanessa Bling was one of dancehall's most promising young starlets, who would go on to earn Jamaica STAR's People's Choice Awards for Female Artiste Of The Year. Under the wings of dancehall superstar Vybz Kartel, Vanessa Bling also toured the world, appearing on stages from Germany to Israel and all across the Caribbean. It all came to a halt when she was arrested alongside her mentor in 2011. Following the tumultuous legal ordeal, Vanessa Bling took a break from the world of music to regroup.

Cardi B's use of Vanessa Bling's Everything Fi Hold Him catapulted the singer back into the spotlight, and she took that as a sign to give her fans what they had been asking for - new music.

After collaborating with producer Marcus Myrie (son of dancehall legend Buju Banton) on a series of well-received songs, Vanessa Bling is once again ready to fly on her own.

"The song Freedom was my opportunity to tell my story," said Vanessa Bling, who is currently signed to Outtaspace Entertainment and managed by En-Treeg Records.

"Not just to get some closure on the situation for myself, but also to offer hope and encouragement to anyone else who might be going through a similar situation."
