Despite all the media hysterics that unfolded a short time ago, Michelle Downer aka D’Angel has been non-stop working. She has been doing a lot of recordings in the studio both here and abroad. Currently, D’Angel has released her new single called “Blaze” produced by Arif Cooper of Fresh Ear Productions and the song has been blazing up the airwaves hard in Jamaica.
“Blaze” is in rotation abroad on urban and reggae stations in New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, L.A., and Miami as well as on underground stations. D’Angel just returned from New York doing promotions and recording new tracks for her up-coming album. She was featured on a remix with Alicia Keys on her new track titled “No One”. She was also the special featured guest at the Reggae Twins Fashion & Style party at the Club Carib in New Rochelle, NY over the weekend.
D’Angel is putting together her album for 2008 and is now busy in the studio working with some of Jamaica's top producers such as Wee-Pow (Stone Love), Sly & Robbie (Taxi Gang), Arif Cooper (Fresh Ear), Steve McGregor (Big Ship), and Don Corleon, amongst others including some international producers. Prior to her new single, D’Angel’s catalogue stems back to several chart hitters including her break out song “Downtown Girl (Living Uptown)”, One Man featuring Beenie Man, and Baby Father with Vybz Kartel.
Preparations are also in place to shoot a video for “Blaze”. The video will hit the local TV and cable stations in a few weeks.
