Koffee Teases New Song ‘West Indies’ After 1-Year Hiatus – DancehallMag

Rebel Nation | October 6, 2021


The Grammy Kid Koffee is keeping the pace as she readies the release of a new song West Indies come this Thursday, October 7. With her upcoming debut LP in the works, the Spanish Town native intends on keeping fans entertained until its launch.

The 21-year-old announced West Indies today on Twitter alongside the cover art, which features an island vibe theme with a 42-second snippet of the song.

“Coming from the West Indies and you know say we giving you the best indeed,” Kofee sings at the top of the beat, exuding some sweet R&B sounding flows.

“If you know me I’m having the time of my life, don’t you slow me down … I wanna just party,” she continues in more verses.

The young Reggae singer has always been very strategic with her song releases; her last was the Pressure (remix) with Reggae icon Buju Banton last October.

Before that, was her massive summer anthem Lockdown, which became her second best-streamed song, now amassing 57 million views behind Toast at 183 million views on Youtube alone. Released in July 2020, the Dane Ray-produced Lockdown, was the No. 1 streamed song out of Jamaica for 2020. It reached the coveted million-views mark on YouTube after only 48 hours, making it the first single from a Reggae artist to get to that mark in such a short period of time.

As the release date approaches for her new single West Indies, expectations are already set on high. So far Koffee, whose real name is Mikayla Simpson is yet to disappoint fans.

The Raggamuffin singer, who won the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album with her Rapture EP, will release her first full-length album in the coming months. She told Rolling Stone in February, that she wants to focus on the idea of unity in the forthcoming collection. “I want to speak of a solution and of a way that we can come together and get along, even when things are going wrong,” she said. “Positivity is definitely a theme.”

Koffee also said she has something new and unexpected in store for those familiar with her music.

“It will be a very interesting twist for people who knew my music before, and also for people who will discover me. I think it will be really awesome.”
