New Vybz Kartel release ‘Ouchea’ featuring upcoming British female rapper Ili Sanchea came out on Friday, as it looks like the World Boss is looking to promote a new generation of artists, with another rumoured single ‘Girls Wanna Have Fun’ with another young female rapper Jodi Couture being previewed on Kartel’s Instagram page last week.
The release of ‘Ouchea’ comes just one day after the release of Shenseea’s refix of ‘Secret’, a 2017 single by Vybz Kartel. This volume of music all coming within such a small period of time has really been a surprise as for in 2018, there has not been a great deal of releases from the Kartel camp, with some suggesting that this could be due to the appeal of his prison sentence.
As for Ili Sanchea, her roots are in rap, previously releasing songs on GRM Daily, such as ‘Honeys Get The Money’ from 2015 with Trillary Banks, which is far removed from her sound on this single with Kartel.
‘Ouchea’ has a strong rap feel to it, with an nontraditional dancehall instrumental, with Ili Sanchea coming with an almost hybrid style which takes elements of both dancehall and rap.
