Hood Celebrityy readies to Tease
Written by Reggae world on June 5, 2018
Newly signed Epic Records act Hood Celebrityy will be making her first appearance as a performer in Jamaica at a show dubbed ‘Tease’ on June 24.
The event is set for Sugarman’s Beach in Portmore.
Event promoter and artiste manager Michael Wilson said that Hood Celebrityy is one of the hottest dancehall artistes in the US.
“Hood Celebrityy is one of the few overseas-based deejays to dominate the music scene locally, so this is history in the making, and Tease will be the first to bring her to Jamaica…she is hot like fire, she deh everywhere, people obsessed with the Walking Trophy, she deh a UK, Miami, California,” Wilson said.
Born in Jamaica and raised in St Catherine, the artiste born Tina Pinnock moved to the United States as a pre-teen and embraced the culture and sounds of hip hop while keeping close to her Jamaican roots.
Things began jumping off for Hood Celebrityy in 2015 with the release of her single and video Wine Pon It, which went viral after her friend and fellow Bronx resident Cardi B posted the visuals.
She followed up with her breakout song Walking Trophy, which has become a dancehall anthem and popped up on the Billboard R & B/Hip Hop airplay chart, peaking at 34.
Wilson said that her performance is one patrons can look forward to because the artiste is blowing up all over the world.
“She deh everywhere a foreign, all the major shows dem, and her performances are hyped up and full of energy. This is no normal artiste,” he said.
