Reggae’s reigning princess has been busy in the studio writing and recording tracks for her third, yet to be titled list of new classics. Etana has been spending quality time with the biggest names in the genre to acquire the perfection she seeks for her latest effort.
The songbird has already completed most of the tracks and is just about ready to pass them over to her label, VP records to select what will make the final cut. Etana admits to being hard to please and if you may, call her a diva when it relates to productivity and the quality of her music productions. “When I’m in the studio, I take my job very seriously. It’s fun but certainly not a game. When I’m in that booth, if something is not right, it has to be corrected. I respect my fans, they support me through buying my records and concert tickets; they put me here so I must give my best.”
The singer wants to keep the collaborations for her new album a surprise; still there has been a lot of buzz surrounding a fiery duet with Freddie McGregor. Industry insiders and online listeners are also responding remarkably well to the prerelease of another track titled, Beautiful Day.
Etana is steering towards the best and brightest young musicians creating waves with energetic, vibrant and free spirited sounds. Majority of the tracks completed so far have been produced by Shane Brown-Juke Boxx Productions in addition to Steven McGregor –Big Ship Records and her former manager, Donovan Germain of Penthouse Records. Etana’s highly anticipated third album is expected to be in stores later this year.
