Queen Ifrica premiered her new video ‘Black Woman’ yesterday in celebration of Women’s Equality Day.

Featured on her album Climb, the lyrically and musically powerful anthem paints the message of black women protecting themselves and uplifting each other.

Filmed in Jamaica, the video features black women of all ages and occupations, while Queen Ifrica, regally dressed in African garb, performs the song against a black backdrop.

Familiar faces Emprezz Golding, Kamila McDonald and Naomi Cowan are also seen throughout the visual.

The video comes at a time when womanhood has been celebrated more than ever with movements such as #MeToo, which bring attention to sexual harassment in the entertainment industry and workplace.

On the other spectrum, black women specifically have been glorified more than ever with movies such as Black Panther, which showcase the all-black female cast as strong, intellectual and brave.

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
