Queen Ifrica Releases 3 Song Digital EP 'Road To Montego Bay' available Online March 24, 2009

New Studio Album Montego Bay Set to Be Released Mid-Summer 2009 on VP Records

The poised yet audacious singer/songwriter Queen Ifrica will unveil her EP Road To Montego Bay digitally on March 24, 2009. This 3 song selection will give listeners a preview of her eagerly-awaited VP studio debut release Montego Bay expected in stores and online this summer.

The EP covers three topics: a poignant tale of child molestation on "Daddy" (produced by Kemar McGregor) which has already received worldwide recognition and reached the top of reggae charts, bravery and dedication on her uplifting melodic single "Lioness on The Rise" (produced by Donovan Germain) and essential Rasta rituals on "Coconut Shell" (produced by Tony Rebel).

"This EP exemplifies what is to come this summer. Montego Bay will expose the many sides of Queen Ifrica. She is traditionally a deejay, so we will highlight her raw fyah burn style on songs like "Coconut Shell", her heartrending sensational side on tunes like "Daddy" and her strong independence on tracks like "Lioness On Rise", states VP Records A&R Neil Diamond.

Queen Ifrica born Ventrice Morgan, began her career in 1995 after shining at a local talent contest in her hometown of Montego Bay, Jamaica. This eye-opening experience eventually led to major stage performances in her country including the esteemed Reggae Sumfest as well as a union with Tony Rebel's Flames Crew in 1998. With roots firmly secured in the Rastafarian faith, she blossomed as one of the top cultural artists in reggae- swarming the airwaves with hits like "Randy", "Jus my Brethren", "Below the Waist" and "Daddy" and stealing the stages at major festivals around the world (Summer Jam in Germany, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, Bob Marley Festival, Reggae on the River in California and Reggae Sundance Festival in Holland). As an active community leader, she is currently involved in several outreach programs for children in Jamaica's inner-city and charity shows where her performance proceeds are donated to the cause.

Lioness on the rise
Queen ifrica telling the world her story from the struggles of being a female singer in mainly male dominated genre and most interesting her salute to her own achievement caught on by the this line (when the role is called i will be standing taller)and her acknowledgment of her motherhood duties and while also expressing the warrior in her when called upon. Yes lioness has served apprenticeship and is now ready to rise. A song filled with deep meaning and over flowing with acknowledgment of where she is in life and in her career. Yes Fyah muma, Yes Lioness its time to rise Yes you can by my name oh Yes you can !
