Koffee currently has the most popular reggae/dancehall song on the planet. The 19-year-old singing sensation dropped the video for her breakout hit “Toast” in November last year, and already she cracked 15 million views on YouTube and millions of streams across the major streaming platforms, Spotify and AppleMusic.

Her new single “Throne” is also gaining a lot of traction with over a million views in one month. Both hits were produced by Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire who has been instrumental in expanding the influence of dancehall in modern music. It’s not him who is stealing the show here though, it’s Koffee with her slick feel for rhythm and shining charisma.

Koffee’s mission is to preserve Jamaica’s roots and culture in music and to empower the youth of her generation through her own creativity and artistry.

“I want to make a better world for the generation that’s coming up”, Koffee writes, “to promote love and peace, and even though I’m young, I feel that God has blessed me with talent and wisdom to get the job done”.

Main goals

She hopes to touch the hearts of Jamaican people first and by extension the universe. The singer wants to impact her environment in such a positive way that it is clearly visible in the way Jamaicans operate on a daily basis and especially how they relate to each other.

It is really just Koffee’s dream to be the musical vessel that will make a very good and notable change in society Vibes and positivity are primary for the young talented artist.

Inspiration

In terms of inspiration, Koffee has developed fascination for Chicago rapper Indica because of his especially melodic approach to music. Moreover, one of her all time favourites is reggae artiste ProtojeChronixx is also beyond excellent as a musician and she admires him to the max.
